Is Nostalgia Dead?

My friend Jocelyn McLean brought it to my attention that nostalgia is dead for our generation, because everything we’ve ever known is so readily accessible online. We just download it via P2P sharing sites or watch clips of it on YouTube. In fact, that TV series I’ve been searching for since the 80s, Blizzard Island, was recently uploaded onto YouTube and I was able to relive the memories of watching it as a small child!

I remember the early 90s when I was in school and looked back to my early childhood in the 80s and had no real way of experiencing those things except through my memory (and the occasional VHS) but now, as Jocelyn pointed out, we have YouTube and P2P sharing … that’s very interesting!

Here’s a video of a game I played the shit out of when I was a child.
