Being 24 years old, let alone being 20 right now, this is something I should of clocked on sooner and knowing well about America and Europe.
When I was young, around 5 or 6 years old, back in the 90s, being a teenager was a bit deal, you had to pay loads of money for clothes, consoles and stuff because they were well made yet cost alot to produce. It was annoying but it was really creative and insightful.
Being a young 8 or 7 year old kid, I would say that I really wanted to be a part of that and play all the games I can grab hold on and did what the teens did outdoors, like rollerblading, stakeboarding and etcc. This never happened when I was a kid unfortunately expect I was so into video games alot and played until I dropped.
This idea of FUN died out around last decade as it was really depressing if added microtranslations, grinding and the converserties gaming has during the last decade. This has came to a close last year in 2011, little did I know.
I learnt that the fun things teens back in the 90s did was for them, not for me. I'm talking rollerblading, stakeboarding and surfing and etc... they traveled to visit really colourful buildings, be part on television, radio and the paper before Internet destoried it all.
I believe this will merge again this decade and I'm not going to be part of it, I may run the entire thing but I never wanted it that way, I say this because I'm capable now and people are going to look up to me and they are going respect me (whether I like it or not) and I believe it's strongly going to happen.
I'm going to get teens, who I don't like or may like and provide the next wave of whatever fun culture is out there, whether it's skateboarding, movies and etc and it's going to be me who's going to take part in running parts of that show and I am scared, because if anyone gets hurts and I'm running a project or whatever on the outside, I'm going to get sued or trouble for it.
I'm don't know what I'm going to say about the rest. I'm more concerned of running those teens you'll find in the Scott Pilgrim movie.
