I’m getting to the age where a lot of my friends are becoming parents, getting married, and having careers. It’s hard to believe. There are days that I feel like I’m 18 still, just with 3 years of experience. I got that last bit from a t-shirt from a Key West souvenir shop I walked by during spring break one year. I find it hard to believe I’m done with my undergrad. I find it hard to believe I’ll be 22 this year. I find it hard to believe I am still alive, to be honest. Although life is still difficult at times, I feel a lot better than when I was a teenager.
I have no idea if I’ll ever become a parent. I think I’d rather be an aunt than a mum. I want to keep the mod subculture alive for decades to come. I’m not gonna live till the year 2112. People who lived through the years of classic rock are often happy to see young people passionate about the music and fashion of the time period. It’s always great to see children who love classic rock. I want these kids to keep the legacy of classic rock alive and pass down the knowledge of the genre to their descendants. This music is forgotten when no one talks about it. So talk about classic rock! The legacy of classic rock depends on the future generations.
I was looking around my room and I saw that I had two little pottery pieces I worked on a few years ago. I wouldn’t be able to take them to my parents house and still have them in one piece. Moving means that you might have to let go of a few possessions. You learn to prioritise what is important and worth keeping and learn that material things don’t matter much at the end of the day.
My friend has great taste in music and likes all kinds of styles from different decades. He talked to me about how he wants his kid to have mod clothes. Unfortunately I couldn’t find mod clothes for babies at a brick and mortar shop, but I thought about the art I made and it’s very mod. Everything I do comes back to the 60s. The arrows were reminiscent of shirts The Who wore around the years 1965-1966, in particular Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle:
It’s good to surround your kid with a variety of cultures and subcultures. It helps them be open minded. I want to do my share and share something I love with people I know. I wanted this art I made to go to a good home and now it is in a good home.
I found a picture I took of the artwork I made 3 years ago:
I intend for The Diversity of Classic Rock to be my gift for everyone. A place where you can find all kinds of music and it’s all compiled in one convenient place. A place where you can read about rock bands both well known and not so well known. I hope you enjoy the blog.
