Well I'm 31 and at least in my case I think Hardcore will always be a part of my life in one way or another. I think it's unlikely to be immersed in any given trend for half of your life and suddenly or gradually make a clean cut from it. Many of my views and opinions stem from HC/Punk related stuff, and while some have deployed having that as a starting point and evolved onto something else, others remain more or less the same. I think for most of us it helped shape and define the person we are today.
I still go to shows whenever I can, I still buy music and keep up with new stuff and I'm still interested in making/playing music. All my old friends are from the scene, I guess I have started to cialis no prescription

same, I still feel alienated from most of what goes on in most people's heads and from the way they live their lives, their pastimes, their priorities... I guess I am just more open to the idea that there are kindred spirits to be found outside the scene.
As for the current state of affairs in HC... not to give in to the cliche, but yeah, I miss the good old times. Nothing has felt as passionate or defiant as growing up in the 90s Hardcore scene. These days it pains me when I notice the same absent minded, lost stare of kids at shows as I remember seeing in young coworkers when I used to globalfriendlink.com
work at a factory that manufactured car parts... they are still looking for something meaningful that they can relate to, but there is just little to no substance in most current bands, it is as if one were staring at a barren land which once was exuberant and bountiful.
It feels as if not only the scene has become stagnant, but that stagnation has begun to cripple its potential and we are functioning within an apparatus which is long overdue for an evolutionary leap.
