Born at the wrong time, man. That's how I feel about it, anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I love technology, modern medicine, etc. But if I could have been a young man back then, I would have been in heaven. Just having a scene like that, going out and taking in all that music. I mean, can you imagine? "Hey, Ants. Let's go down to the Five Spot and check out Monk with Coltrane tonight." "Okay. Then, after that, let's see Miles at the Cafe Bohemia."

Like a dream. And it really happened. The lucky ones who got to be around through that, man am I envious!
