I was watching some Behind the music type show the other day and this guy, who was in some band or something (It was on in the backround) said something along the lines of "The decades of Rock and Roll and Punk and Glam were amazing becasue veryone was outdoing each other everyone was trying to shock people...nowadays..people are just unshockable"....(Oh, I just remembered it was the lead singer of The Tubes)..So anyway, I got to thinking,,,,Aside from Marylin Manson, I havent been SHOCKED by a band in AGES! I mean...Its really all been done before..So if people are unshockable...what is next? what does a society of unshockable people do? Look for the next best thing? Shoot up their schools?....Life sucks.
Maybey....Its not so much that the world is unshockable, just old people are. (Im 26..and Im guessing that its old at this point)...but
OK..I have formed a question. The question is this...
If our society is completely unshockable...and the movies and rockstars and gunman are now geared to younger viewers, Britney is running around half naked, Christina needs to be rubbed the right way, the powers that be have to take their money becasue the young are STILL shockable...after a while, wont the young be unshockable? Next they will be killing babies? What happens when Noone at all is schockable. And we are all just jaded @#!!!s? And there is nothing to be seen becasue we have allready seen it?
Will we be so bored that human emotion may come back into importance?
i havent eaten in two days. I realise this doesnt make much sence. Sorry to vomit my thoughts. I am organising.
