Memories were meant to fade

This morning I was musing on Facebook's Memories function. I really despise it every day when it suggests I have memories to view and share.

My sister calls it "Facebook's memory replacement service". I don't know why it bothers me but I concur with the sentiment in the film Strange Days (1995), where Mace says "Memories were meant to fade." It feels backward-looking to want to emphasise memories. I think it's a function of Facebook pandering to people's narcissism but maybe it's an extension of their data-mining?

The scene above from Strange Days above also features the "Right here, right now" used by Fatboy Slim to great effect, see below.
