The 21st Century

There are those odd moments when you stop and realize how magical technology has become. I was sipping tea next to the KLCC musical fountain and a very sort-of-metal meets violin fusion song came on the loud speakers. I reflexively reached out to my smartphone, fired up Soundhound, hit "Listen" saw the artist/song pop up on my screen, and saved it to Evernote with 2 taps and then in hit me. What I did in those 30 odd seconds would have been unimaginable a couple of decades ago(especially without asking anyone).

I mean yeah, we never got Hoverboards or power laces and we still don't have a moon colony or spinning space stations with simulated gravity, but hey, sometimes you gotta find your "I'm living the future" fix in the little things.

The song was Contradanza by Vanessa Mae
