Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:
Do you enjoy movies?
I love watching movies, probably too much, for in watching movies, I neglect my music rehearsals, and I don't get any physical exercise.
Now that I'm retired, and with the added advantage of access to the Internet, I can watch movies constantly, and even enjoy old television series.
But, I've noticed one thing.
Movies and television shows that were made many years ago are MUCH better than the movies and television shows that are made today.
Why is that?
Shouldn't art have evolved and improved over the passage of time?
The old classic movies and television shows entertained, and were clean enough for family entertainment.
But, it seems as if all contemporary movies are required(?) to include scenes of nudity and sex, regardless of whether it has any bearing on the story, and of course, profane language is another necessity for modern film productions, with plenty of casual misuse of "God", "Jesus", or "Christ".
Also, it seems that contemporary movie and television shows are not intended to entertain, but are instruments of government approved "politically correct" propaganda, with a subliminal or blatant political and/or social conditioning message always included.
The stories are almost always slanted to mock and/or apologize for traditional American values and Christian family morality, and yes, an anti-white racial bias is ever present.
Has Hollywood completely stopped making Western shoot-em up bang bang cowboy and Indian movies?
What happened to the Broadway musical comedies, with songs that everybody could easily memorize and sing?
By the way, the deterioration of music is yet another bone of contention, for the "golden oldie" melodies of yesteryear are far superior to virtually anything produced today.
Country music is NOT country!
To my knowledge, there hasn't been any Country songs recorded in Nashville since - - - the 'Sixties?
Rock 'n' Roll?
I remember Rock 'n' Roll when it was young and good, and fun, and done by white people.
Anyone could understand the lyrics, and even sing along.
But, alas, those days are long gone.
Will we ever get them back?
Will we ever clean up Hollywood and Nashville?
