People have always said that things move in cycles. Basically saying that what becomes old and played out will return to an even higher popularity. It has been the case with so many things, Bell-bottoms came back for its second dose at fame, and still various styles continue to return. On a serious note often times history repeats itself, sometimes for the better and some for the worst. The Bush Cycles have to fall amongst the worst, but then how about the positive side of things, B-boys or breakers may have never left for some of us although to the general public they were nearly extinct.
What was once on nearly every corner in America and around the world has again reached a new level of flame. With the competition shows all over TV and the Internet video craze, the skill levels have risen through the roof. The Moves these cats are pulling off would be unheard of to breakers of the past. Of course every ones trade or talent grows with the times but these dancers are nothing short of amazing. The way that hip-hop culture has become the new pop culture has us finding B-boys and B-girls doing more commercials, TV shows, and movies in the last 5 or more years. Quite a few other elements have been getting their fair share of attention as well.
People always have a good laugh with the kids or young people when something makes it return to the spot light. “You should have seen them in my day” they say. What is to be said about the return of all the movies from back in the day? Often times they butcher a classic. Rarely, almost never these days does a new concept come to life and when its does they break the bank for a flop. Prequels have become the movie save all, that and the remake have successfully tricked people into watching a horrible film for a days worth of wages at there nine to five. Hollywood is rapidly declining… its water well has run dry and the people around it are beginning to panic. As soon as a remotely good flick comes out it’s, followed by a terrible sequel.
Moving on, positive cycles, watching a family member carry mannerisms from people they’ve never met. Have you ever been told you remind me of your uncle, grandpa or your mom or dad? In life this falls into one of its greatest cycles. Being able to enjoy someone after there gone through family members actions. Watching your children act just like there parents. What are the best and worst cycles you notice most?
