By now, most of us who are clued in to the scene have more or less accepted a variation on the following: it’ll be the year 2102, and fans will be using that year’s Dinosaur Jr. album as a more-than-effective means of harkening back to the 1990s, that decade of considerable primitiveness when it comes to life-extending medical technology.
