I don’t know how Time Magazine reached the conclusion that the 2000s were the worst decade ever. A decade where a few people with plenty of money anyway getting fleeced by Bernie Madoff was one of the 10 worst things to happen. Bunch of wankers.
Anyhoo, there’s no arguing over which decade represents the world’s cultural nadir: the 1980s. Jean Michel Jarre’s Oxygene sums up everything that was wrong with music in the 80s. So I’m not sure why I covered it. The only branch of the arts that did well in the 80s was comedy. And they certainly had balls to think they could film unfilmable Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It ended up looking terrible but having charm (not something you could say about the film).
