Not exactly problematic, but I'd say it's a distraction and it's not very useful. More than anything else it was a response to the "entitled millennials" thing the media did, and it probably won't last, so I don't really care.

It seems like people recognize that there is something wrong with "ok boomer". Like, when I suggest that it's an unfair generalization of a whole generation, people claim that boomer is a mindset, not an age, and that's why it's ok. But if that's the case, you could make the same excuse for the "entitled millennials" thing. Don't get offended, we're just criticizing a mindset.

If we wanna blame them for what is now, we'll also have to blame millennials for what is in 10 to 20 years. I have a feeling most of 'us' would get a little defensive when young people in 2040 blame 'us' for everything.

Millennials voted for Trump and they didn't do anything about climate change. Now we're fucked.

That future headline lacks nuance, just like the 'I hate boomers' posts and comments I saw on reddit.

Watched Climax (2018) the other day. Gaspar Noe has a unique style, I like that, but his movies often border on edgy and weird for the sake of being edgy and weird, which can get boring very quickly.

Some personal favorites:

  • Primer (2004)
  • Coherence (2013)
  • Midsommar (2019)
  • Le Trou (1960)
  • Spirited Away (2001)
  • Y Tu Mamá También (2001)
  • Parasite (2019)

Vaguely related:

I've been making music my entire life, and I was always driven by this idea of a 'perfect' debut album I'd one day release. You know, something complete and 'flawless', something to be proud of, something that might even make me some money. My tastes kept changing, my sound improving, so I never really had the chance to put 10 tracks together on a 'flawless' album that withstood my changing expectations/standards. A couple years into this, I realized that there will never be such a thing as a perfect debut album, at least not the way I had in mind originally.

Eventually, the vague idea of a perfect album transformed into a "beauty of imperfection" project, which I thought would make a good album title. First, I attempted to recreate the imperfections of 90s big beat tracks, which left me unsatisfied because it sounded like a copy of a copy of the Chemical Brother's early albums. Replacing today's mainstream standards with 90s slightly-off-mainstream standards didn't help.

What I should've focused on instead, is self-expression, displaying my 'mind' and my intentions in music, and finding my own 'beautiful imperfections'. I should've focused on creating art instead of a product. I'm new to this, but if feels right.
