Nobody's got time for going to a gallery or a theater. Reading novels are a hassle, especially if they are not vampires, wizards or based on cliche conspiracy theories. People love themselves some music that requires zero talent to create and lyrics that mean naught. Just watch a movie, it's a combination of all of them and it comes to your home. People are born, they live, and die without feeling anything, without stopping for a minute, and thinking. Don't know about the world but it certainly is this way in my country.

No. There has always been bad artists. For example if you look at the 50's almost every single song on the radio was about love. There have also been many great plays in modern times, and books as well. You say books about wizards and vampires aren't transitional but look at Lord of the Rings and Count Dracula.

I completely agree with this statement. It is awefully sad to see such a decrease in traditional art and an increase in modern, or technological work

I'm interested in taking this. I'll leave it for a few days in case anyone else wants a shot at this before me, but if no-one accepts this in a day or two, I'll gladly accept. Please feel free to PM me with a reminder if this is about to run out of time with no challengers.

If you think that things weren't like that in the past as well, your glasses must be quite rose-tinted.

Indeed it is, but that is how the modern era (or rather post-modern) is like. New things will eventually replace the old things, whether it's people, objects, values, beliefs, and so on. Sad at times, but that's the way it is. Which is why it is wise to cherish the moment - because soon enough, it will be replaced by something else and you may not be able to go back. Of course, one of the many modern trends include reviving and rebooting old things, so hey, maybe in the future people that are evoked with nostalgia and/or curiosity may revive and redeem the significance and importance, right?
