Oh, you're trying to be funny.  But to be funny, your observations have
to have some basis in reality, Jesse.

It's true that I appreciate the classics in all artforms.  But that's
because classic books, films, television, and comics usually have both
more substance and heart.

I don't really enjoy frivolous art, and the whole MTV aesthetic
certainly turns me off.  What I appreciate above all are those modern
works that don't kowtow to the modern attention span, but expect its
audience to be intelligent.  Works that expect you to have a little
life experience, and challenge you.  Works that have heart and depth
and truth.

And while most films and books and et al don't even aspire to that,
good stuff does exist in any age.
