Back to the... 70's?!

What the hell is going on?! For the past year, I couldn't help noticing an increasing trend of 70's fashion, music and general lifestyle swarming through our daily, 21st Century lives. Am I the only one bothered by this? I'm pretty sure that's not the case... Still, why is this happening? Did all of the creativity and immagination die and we have to go back 30-40 years ago to get some inspiration? And in most cases it's not just inspiration, it's pure theft.

Ripped-out and worn-out jeans, afro haircuts, big sunglasses, Madonna... anything ringing a bell? All of this was hugely popular during the 70's and 80's and so it is today. Aren't we supposed to move forward and not backward? Wake up and smell the microprocessors, people! If you can't come up with something original, then just QUIT. Retire to some God-forsaken island with your Tom Jones albums and let us develop and advance.

It seems that these days all you have to do to be in fashion is to open up grandma's wardrobe, pick anything that is in reach, and you're a star! Pretty soon it will be mustaches, big hair, fake nails and Jacksons 5 all over the place! If my grandmother knew how much her shoes will be worth today and how trendy she'll be, she would've bought more!

Hell, if we're going this way I'll be able to relive my life in a few years...
