Coses Modernes

Segons Antonia Font, les coses modernes han hagut d'esperar molt per a apareixer en escena ... i resulta que quan han arribat, tampoc es poden quedar! Quina vida han tingut els cassettes - 40 anys? I els discs de vinil, i els cassettes de video? Aixo els VHS, que jo tenia els videos Philips 2000 que potser van "viure" només 2 anys!

I ara que fem? Tenim les cases plenes de cassettes que mai escoltarem, cameres manuals que no usem, maquines d'escriure agafant pols a l'almacen ... però costa fer neteja, veritat?

...

According to this Catalan pop song (Coses Modernes by Antonia Font), modern gadgets and products have had to wait ages to be invented, and they are not happy about it!

And, as it turns out, no sooner have the appeared than many disappear again in a flash. What is the 40-year life cassettes have had compared to the thousands of years of evolution, or millions since the Big Bang?! What a miserable run vinyl LPs have had, or typewriters, or video cassettes!

And now what - what do we do with the typewriter gathering dust in the loft, or the boxes and boxes of cassettes, or the manual camera in the sock drawer? Completely useless and never to be come out again, but it's hard to say goodbye, isn't it?
