I have to say culturally (at least in the US) this decade has been the worst since I've been alive. That was in no doubt due to Dubya Bush for a lot of reasons, but it seemed like America kind of lost its identity for a while after the good times of the 90s. Granted there was some great music, movies and video games etc. in the last 10 years but I feel if we're just judging time based upon entertainment media we've kind of lost something that makes our lives important. We're all now wired in a lot more than we were in 1999, the rise of wireless technology, all in one devices we carry everywhere and social networks that continue to spread to every facet of our lives. I'd like to know where watmm thinks the world is headed in the next 10 years, will it be good or are we destined for a global meltdown and continued wars around the world?

I'm having trouble coming up with a coherent introduction at the moment. I make this thread because my head is spinning after days of reading and scrolling through blogs and tumblrs and weird websites. Is the modus operandi of 'underground' culture (outmoded term) shifting? Or is it just putting on a new outfit? My vision is very clouded by a barrage of content right now, so I can't trust my own judgement. Is the increase in experimental electronic music, left-wing fashion subcultures, and 'futurism' just the next phase of the 'hipster (in late 2000's sense, not 90's)' ? Is an attitude phresher and less brain-damagingly petty than before pushing vice and pitchfork aside? Is re-hashing, retrofitting, reviving...reaching the point where it happily melds with the present? Has the aversion to the present (displayed in endless ironic revival, nostalgic recreations) created a present so soaked in the past that paradoxically things are going somewhere again? Or is that feeling itself a rehash of the emotions of the early 90's!?!? To me, late 2000s were full of this cynical, self-hating group of internet critics unenthusiastically trying to explain and keep tabs on art and music and pop culture, putting it in a box and removing the fun of it. Is that dying out? Is it fruitless to continue to frame the present in respect to the past, or is it right to be endlessly cynical? For those of you who lived through the late 80's and 90's and saw all the absurd and colorful directions things went...are the current streaks in high art and underground streetstyle retro reenactments of those times, or are we breaking free of this cultural regurgitative loop?
