So I was watching and listening to the Lady Gaga "Alejandro" video on TV (don't try to convince me that you haven't seen it -- everyone who isn't actually sightless has seen it).

And I thought. Ah Western Culture, it had a pretty good run for 25 centuries and nothing lasts forever.

I liked her better before she became Borg, and the Borg assimilated both Nazis AND Sweden.
But not that much better.

And to think in ancient times Pinball Wizard had to pass for rock opera.

I've been hearing this since at LEAST the Beatles, and I'm pretty sure it was said of Elvis as well. Come to think of it, Petronius the Arbiter said much the same 2000 years ago (of course that was Nero's court so he was prolly right).

Old guys dont like this young foolish music, shock horror probe

My post was unclear. This old guy likes that foolish young music. So does the woman married to this old guy.

My reaction really was "oh well western culture wasn't so great anyway."

Now I think I'm going to listen to some good old music from before I was born
"Roll over Beethoven"
Chuck Berry 1956.

I see your Petronius and raise you a Tacitus. Classical culter wasn't dead, it just smelled funny
