Hello void. Once this was a well taken care of blog. There were friends and lots of exchange. Until…life took over and i didn’t put any more effort in this great space. Enough. Still life is in command and still is midnight here so that’s why i have some spare time. The fact is that writing is the best way for me to communicate with myself and you void is the best listener. You don’t expect gain and you don’t judge violently as social media does. By the way how angry and bureaucratic live in social media is growing to be. We are moving from 6 to 600 degrees of separation because of it. Anything is a reason for you not to agree and when you don’t agree in social media you must retaliate. Trump is surely a post social media president. He wouldn’t survive the old days of letters and post cards. Not enough room for discontent. As a result of all this now we have computers as main interlocutors between human interactions. I’m not sure it’s a good idea for us humans. I guess for computers it’s ok. Some people say some day computers will take over anyways. In the meantime i wish to get back to a less rude form of digital interaction and the space is exactly it. Thanks void. I hope you get back being a populated space with friends and exchange. Good week to you…

I was born in 69 so in the end of the 70’s i was a ten years old kid. This was a very rich age for culture. I remember the premiere of Star Wars. A film i watched in the Movie theatres fourteen times. It was the age of disco and the age of punk. The age of feminism. The age of pop and the age fo hippies. It was the age of the big promisses for the future with the start of the personal computing and the beginning of roots for globalisation. There were no AIDS. The kids that grew up at that age were supposed to change the world. Let’s not forget we are talking about the cold war so the world we are supposed to build is a world in peace. Something very interesting happened in music. It was a time where kids opposed the status quo and embraced the idea that chance is always better no matter what. Punks looking for anarchy, New wavers looking for a different cultural attitude, hippies fighting wars with flowers, skinheads gathering gangs to fight for the working class, Hip-hop from the projects talking about real african american issues, mainstream dancing on the disco clubs and having free sex, Heavy Metal dudes alienating from society and The Yuppies casting a capitalist shadow in all this fun. A importante thing at those times is that these tribes didn’t mix at all. Skinheads would only go to punk shows to fight. Rock hed nothing to do with new wave and all these tribes had their own way of dressing and talking and acting and all reflected the music they listened. The thing is: that was not all fun and joy. There was a lot of prejudice between these tribes and also with the status quo. It was a time of fight and hate in many levels but it was also a time of a rich cultural creation. The richer of the last decades. Punk, pop, pop-rock, electronica, hip-hop, new wave, goth, disco. Almost all the musical styles we listen today came from the 70’s. We had grunge in the 90’s and many electronica segments but not even one new hole musical style. In other hand today kids go to a rock party that ends as a disco party and they hang with hip-hop kids that enjoy electronic music and so on. Punk is only the theme of some fashion collections as well as hippie. Psychedelic is a graphic style and also a segment for electronica. That makes me wonder. The cultural segregation from the 70’s created so much and the 00’s cultural mixup where everybody can do anything created so little? Am i missing something here? If i’m right segregation is not so bad culturally speaking? As i don’t like the idea of segregation how can creation grow in a fluid environment where the “need” to raise a voice in not so important for a group as it is for an individual?
