Post About Something you find Tremendous- That is no more than 5 years old
It can be anything, a video, a piece of music, a photograph or painting, a video game even, but it needs to have been produced within the last 5 years. For all the hand wringing that goes on here about the decline of culture (just as has been heard by eldergays since time immemorial) There must be SOMETHING you guys like.
ok here's a re-edit of Soul 2 Soul's 90's hit "Back to Reality" that has been utterly transformed into what I think is an even better song by a producer who guys by Late Nite Tough Guy. His music is pretty great, and he exclusively works with older tracks, so that might be a comfort to you grandpas.
The best, most poignant pop song of the year..
"Over the Border " by St. Etienne
