Seriously, I feel like I have boomer-tier opinions on so many things now.
I feel I keep becoming more and more out of touch with youth culture and things that are popular in general.
I look at the nominees for video game and film award shows and I recognize maybe two of them.
My brother shows me a song that he says is great and I've never heard of it, and he then informs me that it's currently a top 10 hit with millions of views or something and he doesn't understand how I haven't heard it.
People rant and rave about how incredible the newest capeshit film is and I'm just thinking, why can't Hollywood find a different trend, how come every time I look at rottentomatoes.com there is almost nothing that looks good to me that is playing in theaters? and if I do go to the theater, it baffles me that 90% of the previews I see look dumb as fuck, to the point where I wonder "what kind of people even watch that shit? how does that have four sequels?" etc.
my brother and stepsister are on apps like snapchat and instagram 24/7 and that stuff seems retarded to me, they are full of short low-effort meme videos that are just not funny.
now don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to act like a fedora and say that good media doesn't exist anymore, I'm sure it does, like there are probably tons of cool art house films coming out that just don't get advertised much, and there is some pop music I like, and some modern vidya I play, but I can't help feel like the world as a whole has just gotten...dumber, kinda?
I can't be the only one who feels this way here...
