My love for them may have been the same all these years...like a rock...but I know what you mean in the sense that when you watch something from them you've loved since you were a kid, you pick up on things you didn't understand the first time. Sometimes it can feel that much more powerful than it already was. And I definitely agree with you about the influence they've had (100% positive) and I agree even more (if that's possible) regarding how the emotional power of something they did years ago is often even greater due to how fast the time goes, and wishing we could go back. I certainly relate to your point there. It's sad, and yet, it'd be even sadder if we didn't still have these to enjoy now. After all, they don't make anything like they used to! And this is coming from someone who is also a fan of new stuff!
