Today’s youth, my generation doesn’t exactly have one place that exemplifies the London seen in the Time magazine piece written in the 1960’s. I do believe however that we have many small places or events that make up something like that London. There are many different ways that my generation has come to have that sense of hip ness and style.I think some small “places” that are now hip among youth are concerts. I don’t always mean the giant thousands upon thousands of people concert, though this can easily show cool culture. Large concerts were popular even in the 1960’s, but today something that has grown in cool culture is a small concert. Indie music played at small clubs or even how about big name artists who choose to play small bar concerts. There is something that is modern about how these types of musical events have grown. A young person wants to see something in person, to have his or her own personal experience with it. To hear a cd or listen to something on the radio is not the experience that young people want. I think young people are looking for a new experience, and most only think that can happen when it is experience in a new way to them.
No matter the time period, the place or events that best portray the youth of the time are also going to be full of ideas about change or how to improve the world. When we are youthful we tend to be more passionate and when we grow old we tend to mellow out a bit. I think this is the idea that goes with any young generation and I think that also goes with the style and cool culture of the time. The topic may change but some passion is always going to be there for whatever it is.
