Having got to known teenagers of this generation in the last few years...it strikes me very vividly that the new breed are far more reasonable, logical and rational than my bunch when we were teenagers in high school and into our twenties.
People seem to jump down their throats for no apparent reason...case in point, Justin Bieber is growing up to be as mischievious as every other teenager...quite innocent if you ask me. Compare his actions to the outright insane behaviour of young rock stars in the previous generations...beheading birds with bare teeth, drugs that will kill a horse....even up to glamorising depression and violent suicide...you get my drift?
It makes today's urban music stars very tame in comparison (violent gangsta rap popularity has waned since early 2000 i.e. over a decade ago). Justin Bieber is a good kid in my books.
I think this is relevant because inevitably, head-fi will be where young people can conglemerate and discuss great sound seeing as they are can't do that in real life like in the past (not their fault, it is the direction humanity has been embarking on since the beginning). Their numbers will change the dynamics of this place considerably and inevitably. I love it...young people discovering great sound en masse, I can only dream.
