A Thousand Barefoot Children Outside Dancing On My Lawn

I think my favorite ur-old fogie comment that I see in various versions on the internet is something along the lines of "I haven't watched TV in 30 years - there's nothing good on." There's no obligation to watch or enjoy TV, or movies, or music, or video games, or contemporary novels, or anything else. We all have our likes and dislikes, we all have ways we spend our "free" time. I'm certainly not aware of all internet and TV and movie and music and video and fiction traditions and don't claim to be. But, you know, unless you dip your toe in the water you don't actually know if it's cold, hot, or warm.
