I was thinking this morning about when Prince’s 1999 came out, and how it seemed soooooo far away. I was about 12 and couldn’t imagine being 29, much less the year 2000! Then I started wondering if it was because I was just a kid, and time seemed so relative at that age. So I thought, “okay, the song came out in ’82, so it was 17 years off. it’s 2011 now, so 17 years from now it will be 2028… woah…” it still sounds super futuristic. Like something out of Duck Dodgers… Or am I just getting older and weirder?
