Doesn’t 2007 feel so long ago?
Today’s Meditation, by BruceG, is about a particular 4/20, 12 years ago, spent in a field getting high and eating junk food. You can tell that it’s 12 years ago, or thereabouts, because of the low resolution of the videos hung in the air around you (and is this only the second Meditation to feature real footage from the event the game memorialises?) while you light up, and listen to loops of chattering audio, and click on Oreos to munch them down.
And wasn’t 2007 so long ago? I was a year off becoming an adult. It was a time before the iPhone, and only the very early days of Twitter. The current generation of Marvel movies hadn’t quite begun! Remember a time before there was always another Marvel movie? Looking back, it feels as if so much changed in 2007. Maybe soon the world will change again.
