OH! You're kinda like me, who hates how there seems to be this need to keep up with someone. Realize this: YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP UP WITH ANYBODY.
Music: I have the same taste as you(mostly, not in to too much heavy rock) I LOATHE today's music, nobody really writes actual music anymore.(When it comes to music, I'm old... lol)
Technology:I'm a nerd. I love gadgets. I don't have a huge concern for what is most popular, or the highest specs, or how fashionable it is(you'd be surprised how many do...). Video games-I have a PS2 and Wii. I play em, but I dont play the heavy duty games. It's not worth my time. I know how you feel. Girls can play video games too, no such thing as it being a guy thing. (Lucky, GH Expert! i can't even play Easy!)
I still don't get why some one would want to pay so much for technology, when they could get something that is more practical, less expensive, and just as good...
Overall, be happy with your life, be happy that you were born when you were, that everything happened as it did. There is no reason to regret anything at all. Live like you want to and be free.
I'm 17, and I love life.
