Living in the past
April 11, 2017 2:19pm CST
I have been married for 26 years. recently we moved back to the east coast to help her elderly parents as caretakers to a business.The one thing I noticed about them is they love to live in the past. golden oldies moves, old time music ,etc. I asked them about the most recent movies or music but they don't seem interested. but as soon as the older things come on, there is nothing better. I like my 80s music and movies but I am not gonna not avoid the recent movies and music. The past is ok as long as you are not stuck in the past. Where is marty mcfly when you need him?

I am 25 years old and to be honest I actually hate where the "now" is and where its going. If staying in the past makes them happy and comforts them then I totally respect that. I hate where music is going and how people spend their time selfie taking and just being all about themselves and selfish. Being 25 and thinking this may sound weird but I miss songs in the early 2000 that used to make sense and were very clearly understood and had meaning. they weren't a bag of hashtags and unintelligent statements. Movies oh geez less interesting and very predictable but everyone has their own voice so I respect all.

you have not made a clear and understable presentation.You better get used to recheck and analyse what you wanna mean by then.its a matter of all and about crashing what you have said earlier, thats no good at all.Analyse before speaking to your fellow men

@Metsrock69 : I think the reason why people do it is because there is something or someone in the past that gave them the the greatest impact of their lives that memory molded who they are in this present time. It could be a good or worst memory, for example, When a woman was raped when she is just a child, maybe she will forgive the person who did that to her but she will never 'forget" it.

When you get a certain age, many persons return mentally to their youth. About the music, personally I also prefer the music of the 80' and 90', but I also listen to modern music. But, if listening to music belonging to a generation when you were young, how would you call to those persons who not only like classic music, but love to listen to Mozart, Beethoven, Bach....from a generation they never belonged to? Listening to music is a case of likes and opinions.

I have met people like this. They prefer to stay with the 1960's style haircuts and can not move with the times. My friend loved the swinging 1930's. She still looks back and says "what a wonderful error don't you think! Such beautiful costumes!" I just nod and agree.
