Re: the question about feeling nothing for anything post-'69.
Answer: Absolutely nothing. The 60s is clearly a cultural high water mark.
I can think of absolutely nothing made after '69 that compares to how it had been done before. All those things you listed I can't stand, and don't compare with The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, Tony Hancock, Steptoe, Python etc.....and since when was little ol' punk a 'Revolution'! - the clash couldn't buy a top 10 hit.
The only exception, which I mentioned before, is the ability (thank the Lord) to access the past, which is far easier than it would have been in 1964.....but then, why would anyone living in 1964 wanted to have accessed the past!
I'll be right on that Jeremy Clarkson story, you see.
Oh agree of the Clarkson thing. It's what all the papers are saying.just don't see following the money as a particularly modern trait.
You hate everything made after 69? Wow.
