I don't think boy bands like 98 Degrees or Backstreet Boys will make a comeback. They might get a bit of popularity with the next generation, but I don't expect any comebacks. Swing music probably will make a return; music, as with all pop culture, does go in cycles.


My prediction for 2030:

A strange new genre of music will emerge. It will not really be music, just rhymic talking. It will be called, "rap"  ;D

2005:
Thomas Haden Church will win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Sideways and suddenly he'll be a Queen Latifa-level celebrity. Johnny Depp fangirls suddenly start replacing their Johnny posters with Thomas posters. Because of Thomas' popularity, Wings and Ned and Stacey will be released on DVD.

Tokyo Mew Mew (Mew Mew Power in the US) and Disney's W.I.T.C.H. become cartoon and comic/manga trends for 10-25 year old girls. I also think that DiC will revive their old cartoons for syndication (Crosses fingers).  ;D

Britney Spears will have a baby and set up playdates with Madonna's children.

Michael Jackson will FINALLY be found guilty of his crimes and go to jail.

HDTV manufacturers will begin a price reduction More HDTVs will be bought in 2005 than in 2004 because of the predicted HD conversion date of 2009.

G4-TechTV's audience will dwindle and viewers will want the original TechTV back. G4 TechTV will begin to show Call For Help from the TechTV Canada feed.  Leo Laporte returns!

VH1 Classic will turn into a classic MTV programming network (This has already been reported to happen). Viacom will scrap their package of digital music video networks. A sad day for music video fans with digital cable or DirecTV.

After a five year drought, PVC clothing will be mainstream again and turn up in mall stores other than Hot Topic.

What is with all the Jeb Bush predictions?  America doesn't like a dynasty, and Jeb has already said no.

Here I go:

-The Daily Show's ratings go up and gets a better time slot.
-60's music comes back in.

-President Bush invades Syria

2007:

-Various candidates announce run for President
-Jon Stewart quits
-Conan declared ''no longer funny''
-I move to Alaska
-Bush gives Iran ''the look''

2008:

-Runners for the republican nomination: Rudolph Giliani, Condalezza Rice, Mitt Romney, Bill Frist, and possibly Arnold Schwarzenegger (if Constitution is changed)  Winner: Rice, maybe Frist
-Runners for the democratic nomination: John Kerry, John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, Wesley Clark, Howard Dean, and Dennis Kucinich.  Winner: Clinton, maybe Edwards
-Saddam Hussein trial finally starts
-Bush invades Iran with troops currently stationed in Germany and South Korea
-Rice wins the white house, the first woman and the first black to do so.....and she is a republican (who knew)

2009:

Rice sworn in
-Jay Leno retires
-Conan takes the job for the tonight show
-Reality television starts to creep back
-The Simpsons dies after the 21st season (though no one watched after the 14th)
-Liberals whine that the war in Syria and Iran was unjust, and demand Bush be tried
-New music of the 2010-2019 era creeps in

Actually, the Pope dying is a very good chance of happening. We don't HOPE it happens, but death is inevitable for everyone, except maybe Hugh Hefner. :D

Other predictions:

Martha Stewart will be further scrutinized for more ethics compromises.
George W. Bush will be the first President to be kicked out of Office. VP Cheney will follow rather than take over the Presiidency.
Cher will have one of her tattoos removed (That's gonna hurt! ;D)
I hope this doesn't happen, but I think that luck will run out for us parody artists.

Zirqawi captured! Bin laden found dead possible hit from within or conspiracy theory about American Mafia ties

Rap fades away in popularity as rappers kill each other off one by one (wishful thinking)
Condeleeza Rice faces Hillary Clinton in a celebrity boxing match- Rice knocks her out in first round
Hollywood realizes thay live in a fantasy world and since telling lies for a living is what they do,  they decide to stay out of real world politics (again wishful thinking)
Hillary shows interet in running for President but a scandal breaks about what she was doing while Monica was doing Bill. Seems it was a menage-a-trois gone bad- videos of it sell fast. Anyway the Republicans have her record as "another" liberal and she is not nominated for their last great hope for the Oral uh I mean Oval office.
Robert Redford and Alec Baldwin actually move to Switzerland!, Springsteen tours the red states and no one shows up, The Dixie Chix have to work at a Texas strip club near Crawford, Texas, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon doanate their bodies for stem cell research, Okay okay wishful thinking again.
Martha Stewart confesses to liking prison so much she wants to stay... She announces she is now gay.
Cleveland Browns win a Super Bowl in 2007
Kerry poisioned in suspicious ketchup laced scandal.
Hollywood finally makes an origianl movie!
Elvis secretly enters a karoake contest and finishes last.

Pooling all of my best songs, I will take my efforts to as many Record Labels as I can until I get accepted. I will most likely fail at this attempt to enter music, even if accepted {I doubt many will appreciate my music, at least not enough to be considered a success} I will wind up going to college and wind up doing something in theater. I will live half-satisfied with my life, sorta happy but unfulfilled. I will either kill myself or die 2009-2018. I do not anticipate to live long.

Speaking of Digital Cable/Satellite, there's a rumor that Boomerang will become a Nicj Jr. or Playhouse Disney clone with preschool programming instead of cartoons.


The VH1 Classic change might be good. Only if the shows & music videos are put into good time slots... (Tough I don't have VH1 Classic)


Sadly, MTV2 is just junk & rarely (or never)  airs classic music videos. And not a lot of diversity of music. (Too much rap, less of everything else)

HDTV will fail miserably (and go the way of the beta tape) due to the next prediction:
igital video projectors will replace all television units and mainstream tv will be replaced in homes by streaming internet video shows free from advertising and harmful messages.

The computer and tv will merge into one unit linked throughout the home by wireless connection.

Internet will be a community funded endeavour with all homes linked through wireless link but with one main community central connection. Payments will be included in taxes (to allow all to access information equally)

The young offenders acts will experience a complete overhaul with younger children being accountable to their actions and less able to be shielded by the system for crimes.

The elderly will be better respected.

Corporate sponsorship will be disregarded, disrespected,  and therefore valueless.

Pinup girls will rule the world.

Life will be beee-eeew teefull...

I can't quite predict the nest 4 years, but I'm fearful that the boy-band craze will make a comeback in 2009 with different groups.

1989 = New Kids On the Block
1999 = NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, etc.
2009 = ????  The Half-Naked Gimme Gimme Boeiyzzs???

Seriously, boy band music can be OK, but I don't want it to go out of control like it did 5 or 6 years ago.


*Actually, I thought of a new prediction:  Since George W. Bush is talking about changing the constitution to give certain rights to SOME people(not all), he might change it again to allow a presidency to last 3(or more) terms!

Then he'd continue changing it and changing it until we don't have an America anymore..

The U.S. Congress will do away with their tradtional method of counting votes on bills numerically. Instead a huge decibel meter will be installed on the back wall of the House and Senate chambers. When it comes time to vote on a bill, all those voting in favor will scream at the top of their lungs and clap their hands and bang their shoes agains their desks for 30 seconds to try and make the decibel meter go as high as possible. Those voting against will then have their turn, and whichever side can make the decibel meter go highest wins the vote.

Time to bring this back, bar 2005:

2006:
- New Zealand finally finds out who their new government will be
- Rap and Hip Hop to dip in popularity, Emo (Shudder) and indie rock rise, but not by much
- More extreme natural disasters
- Christmas is declared a 2 yearly thing, and due to PC-ness, officially becomes X-mas
- Current "Bird-Flu" scare considered false
- Cellphones are now able to go to the bathroom, cook and clean for you (If they can do everything else... why not?)

2007:
- More extreme natural disasters, possibly worse yet
- Large earthquake finally hits Christchurch, New Zealand, flattening most of the city
- First ever time machine invented

2008:
- More extreme disasters force world leaders to finally take a stand (including Bush)
- Australia bought out by New Zealand
- Jetpacks are invented

2009:

Well 2005 is almost over so its not so hard to predict the next few months.

2006 - Kevin Federline releases a rap album, and Vanilla Ice tries to make a comeback. Superman Returns, X-Men 3, and Mission: Impossible 3 play in theaters. MC Hammer pants are back in style. The recession starts.

2007 - A new style of hip-hop starts, which combines rap and techno. With the economy, the unemployment and poverty levels are high.

2008 - More colorful clothes will be the trend and people will be looking like clowns. A Democrat gets elected president because of the poor economy.

2009 - The Democrat is sworn in. People look at how they dressed in 2005-09 and be like "What were we thinking?"

2010 - Grunge and the 90's styles come back.

Predictions for 05-09

-NASCAR Driver Mark Martin wins the NEXTEL Championship in 05 in his last year of NExtel Cup Racing(he could do it.)

-The Sixers win a NBA Championship with Allen Iverson within the next few years.

-Hip Hop/R&B continues to dominate the charts.

-The New York Jets win their first Superbowl since 1969(it could happen.)

-Nissan/Infinti will be remebered as the car manufacturer of the 00's with their striking exterior designs(love them or hate them.)

-General Motors will continue to lose market share in the US auto market.

-Rock music will continue its decline on the charts. The charts have not been kind to rock music in this decade thus far.
Boy was i wrong Mark Martin and Allen Iverson haven;t won any champioships and I verson was traded from the 76ers to the Nuggests.

I was right on the R&B and Hip Hop prediction I think.

The Jets are not any winning Super Bowls this decade

General Motors has continued to lose market share.
