Really? Fanfiction was considered terribly geeky/something you would never admit to reading/writing with people my age. It really became a popular thing suddenly with people several years-decade younger? Seems unlikely. Or is the point people just read/write it but still don't talk about it? That seems believable.Around the world, members of Generation Z are spending more time on their electronic devices and less time reading books than before, with implications for their attention span, their vocabulary, and thus their school grades as well as their future in the modern economy. At the same time, reading and writing fan fiction is of vogue worldwide, especially among teenage girls and young women. In Asia, educators in the 2000s and 2010s typically sought out and nourished top students whereas in Western Europe and the United States, the emphasis was on low-performers. In addition, East Asian students consistently earned the top spots in international standardized tests during the 2010s.
Definitely.Millennials came of age in a time where the entertainment industry began to be affected by the Internet. Using artificial intelligence, Joan Serrà and his team at the Spanish National Research Council studied the massive Million Song Dataset and found that between 1955 and 2010, popular music has gotten louder, while the chords, melodies, and types of sounds used have become increasingly homogenized. Indeed, producers seem to be engaging in a "Loudness war," with the intention of attracting more and more audience members. Serrà and his colleagues wrote, "...old tune with slightly simpler chord progressions, new instrument sonorities that were in agreement with current tendencies, and recorded with modern techniques that allowed for increased loudness levels could be easily perceived as novel, fashionable, and groundbreaking." While the music industry has long been accused of producing songs that are louder and blander, this is the first time the quality of songs is comprehensively studied and measured. Additional research showed that within the past few decades, popular music has gotten slower; that majorities of listeners young and old preferred older songs rather than keeping up with new ones; that the language of popular songs were becoming more negative psychologically; and that lyrics were becoming simpler and more repetitive, approaching one-word sheets, something measurable by observing how efficiently lossless compression algorithms (such as the LZ algorithm) handled them.
I feel like I've seen multiple videos like that from UK parliament (where people seem very adversarial I mean). I kind of like listening to them talk though, lol, not sure why.I love how she continues on even though she's being boo'd loads lol.
I kind of 'spiritually identify' with the Lost generation & the Greatest generation (these names are ridiculous, lol, just people who were kind of in their adult years ~ 1920-1950). Mostly because I feel like they had idealistic dreams that weren't much tainted by "the real world".Funny too because 'the silent generation' and they're not in the poll.
