Best takeaway from this episode
"The fun is out there. You just have to search."
Yes a lot of stuff sucks, especially stuff that's over-promoted. But there's stuff that doesn't suck, stuff that is very good. You just have to search.
"There's no music released after <Arbitrary year> that's any good." Actually, there is. You just have to search. It probably won't be whatever is getting mainstream radio play.
I think the only difference as far as older music goes, is the mainstream music back then tended to be better than the mainstream music of today. But go beyond the mainstream stuff and there's all kinds of wonderful music out there. "You just have to search."
