While on vacation, I was at least aware of the fortieth anniversary of Star Wars, but where I'd managed to say something at the fifteen-year mark since Attack of the Clones I didn't have the same drive to make a post about the movie that had got the saga rolling, much less find somewhere offering wireless online access that particular day. It's easy enough to be concerned this has something to do with "I get you cling to your disappointment because of how much you value the old movies, but why do those statements of value just seem to amount to 'they're cool?'"

The fragment of good news at the tail of today's radio reports, though, did get me thinking about a somewhat similar topic. I remember seeing newspaper articles about it having been "twenty years ago today" that "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was officially released, and now it's been fifty. Since seeing those articles I have managed to listen to the album, and I can listen to it with definite interest and pleasure even if I try not to dwell on extreme judgments. At the same time, though, I do wonder just how many attention was being paid to the popular songs of 1917 fifty years ago. Aware just how many of the things I pass the time with are rooted in one way or another in my grade school to high school years, I'm conscious I could be dismissed with comments about pots and kettles or something similar (or at least told "you aren't looking hard enough"), but it is something I keep pondering.
