If you grew up in between the 80s and 90s, you will notice that the cartoons produced these days do not come close to what we used to watch back then.
I always wonder if there is a huge “elite” group that governs and manipulates the masses into jumping into bandwagons and hypes. So much so that we have failed to activate our creative faculty. I have reasons to believe that this caused us to have fewer good leaders in the world today compared to before materialism took over the world. We are now asking ourselves to “think out of the box” when thinking out of the box used to be our natural talent as human beings.
Transformers, Voltron, M.A.S.K., G.I. Joe, and the rest seemed to be making a comeback because we do not have such amazing and creative cartoons. They are still relevant and current because of ORIGINALITY!
They say that a music piece can be seen as a combination of “numbers”. I cannot agree more because songs are made up of the different combination of “chords”. When these combinations has been exhausted, perhaps we start to “recycle” songs like the cartoons from the 80s and 90s. There is no wonder that most of us still listen to ABBA, The Platters, BEE GEES, and many more. I cannot stop but to wonder how in the world these artistes could possibly think of all those wonderful melodies and tunes.
What is happening to us?
