Tony Conrad from Faith, Family and Technology put up a similar kind of post last week and I thought it was a great idea. I mean, I’ve written about my happiness list and I’ve listed off five reasons to be alive today (FRTBAT) before, but this is a little different. It’s more about stuff I’m enjoying and not necessarily about expressing gratitude.
If there is perhaps one over-arching theme to everything that I list off in this week’s vlog, it’s that you can always take something “old” and breathe new life into it. Many of us grew up knowing Will Smith as the commercially-friendly rapper with DJ Jazzy Jeff, telling us how parents just don’t understand. We knew him as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And now, some two decades later, he’s gone “YouTube Stupid” and having a ball doing it. Good for him.
At the same time, maybe what I’m into these days is nostalgia. That’s a big part of what drew me into Ready Player One (the book is way better than the movie). Consequently, that’s what led me to discovering Gunship and their 80s-inspired synth pop sound. Maybe I just want to relive my youth. You know, back in the good old days.
What are you into right now? What are you watching, reading or listening to?
