I like old stuff
Old television shows
I do enjoy current movies, ESPECIALLY if they’re set in an older time frame
Old family values
Remember when the entire family ate dinner together and actually talked???
Old ways of communication
Maybe face to face? Handwritten letters? The old rotary telephone?
How old musical recordings sounded back before the days of auto tune
I’m not entirely shunning new stuff. For instance, I rather enjoy this new laptop I’m writing this post on
But it’s still nowhere near as sexy as the pudgy old newspaper man banging out a story on a typewriter with a stogie hanging out of his mouth, is it?
