Apologies for the (really) late reply, took a break from being extremely online.
>I think that no matter what will happen, there will be people putting all the effort into creating something new, exciting yet unexplored.
This is true, but there has to be a critical mass of people bored with the status quo to provide some fuel for a "novelty explosion" to take place. I think we are finally reaching this point
>Nothing really changed since late 70s, at least not in music business. It's the same old game but with more saturated market and internet makes it all even harder in many cases
There is a great book about this: "Retromania" by Simon Reynolds. Towards the end, he makes the case that Black music / prole music is largely immune to nostalgia and reissue culture. He is right, of course, and I will expand on this thesis and say that this nostalgic outlook also results in a sort of over-analytical attitude, which is constantly castigating past culture for lacking wokeness and authenticity. The way to reject all of this is not to be a reactionary and embrace the un-PC nature of past culture (Vice already did that in the aughts and it led nowhere) but to create something that can stand on its own outside of hipster signalling. Heck, even borrowing from the past shouldn't necessarily be off-limits: you can borrow all you want from the past, as long as you are borrowing hooks and beats to make 'em dance. It's the nostalgic circle jerk of hipster references that's the problem.
>Experiencing life and getting some joy out of it should not be cringy.
Exactly. This should be the rallying cry of the 2020s.
>however in cases of mental illnesses that won't be so easy. I think our current society takes really huge toll on our health. I don't know if people can suddenly bloom and make clear cut but maybe I could easily imagine society scarred by the past and forcing its way through all that bullshit 'head against the wall' style, having fun even though we all know this world is truly a shit filled hole, we as humans are not gods as we used to think and we have absolutely no fucking clue why the fuck we are here and what we are doing.
Yeah, most of what I say is easier said than done, and I am not the first person to say it either. You are right that the average person doesn't have much control over hiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
