- Horbury, West Yorkshire
Going to a music store and trying to find cool stuff - that experience is completely redundant now.
I still do this (when I can prior to CV19), nothing better than digging through piles of records and CD's. I also frequent book stores and sit covered in dust as I grab piles of old books and try and find something interesting. These are still options open to everyone, I guess you just have to work a little harder to find the places to go and do it.
I personally don't mind the "Now" apart from what other have pointed out about Social Media, this is to me one of the biggest cesspools on the internet. As such I still use Instagram to chat to other Record Collectors, Music Artists and Label Owners etc. FB isn't used as much apart from connecting with Family and close friends, I tend to stay away from news or other trash found there.
I love the 80s 90s as I grew up then, so I have rose tinted glasses when it comes to that time period. I'd love to go back to the 40's through to the 60's as a visitor but I don't think I could live in those times.
Technology and its pervasion on our lives doesn't really bother me, I still have a choice to not pick up my phone or turn on the TV etc.
