retro-quotes: a series of germane remarks, by others, plucked from all over the place, and from all over the time # 544
"I guess why I've been cool with listening to old records is not because the past was so, so, so much better. There's plenty of good records out there now, I'm sure, that are new and competent and listenable and etc. But the future the past believed in is better than the past the future believes in. And also, of course, the future the future believes in isn't really that interesting, either.
"But the fact that the future the past believed in hasn't arrived, well, now it's making those old records hard to listen to" -- Aaron Grossman at Airport Through The Trees
