have we just taken this whole 'rehash' / 'recycle' of popular culture TOO FAR?
is anything NEW anymore?
are we just living in an increasing pile of our own regurgitated filth?
80's fashion.. it never fuckin' goes away, it keeps coming back.. and back.. CRAZIER and CRAZIER..
and sure, I appreciate a good bit of messy punk aesthetics.. or oldskool hiphop, coz that kinda messy DIY vibe is timeless..
but wot the hell is this crap with LEGWARMERS? FLUORO? fucken CINDY LAUPER CRAP!!?? rehashin' old 80's movie's in music videos.. wtf??
didn't we just do all of this 80's shit back in 1998?
how long do you think our attention spans are? do we forget how many times the 80's get dusted off and passed off as the latest cool?
and don't get me started on trying to rehash the 70's.. or the fucken 50's!!
the 80's were embarassing enough the first time.. I put up with all that crap all thru my childhood..
had to wait till grunge hit in the early 90's before I could buzz off something.. FUUUUCK!
marketin idiots have soon realised that 80's culture, although the worst and most disposably trashy decade of art..
(and full of a LOT of forgetable one-hit-wonders) also made a SHITLOAD of cash for those involved.. so, why not revisit the glory days of Bananarama, Duran Duran, Wham, Aha, MC Hammer and Michael Jackson? coz, hey.. we know how well THAT went!! riiight??
fashion like this.. gets rehashed so many times, you soon forget which fucken decade you're in..
come to think of it.. perhaps that's coz.. WE DON'T KNOW WOT TO CALL THIS DECADE!!??
the 00's? the naughties? fuckit.. lets call it 80's part 2.. yeah.. that'll work... wtf??
In the last year or so, (or more) I don't think I've seen ONE original fucken idea being made into a movie..
it's all sequels, comic book adaptations, olden golden 40's / 50's / 60's hollywood rehashes.. n shit like that..
tv ain't much fucken better.. it's all just the 60 millionth version of LAW n ORDER, or CSI..
they've even brought back that MacDonalds "2 all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese on a sesame seed bun" crap.. but, it's worse now.. you gotta recite a fucken novel's worth of crap to get a stale medium (watered down) coke.. that's probably been sitting around since the LAST time they did this (back.. in.. guess where.. the 80's!!)
I've seen it all already..
I'm living in groundhog day and I can't get out..
DO SOMETHING ORIGINAL YA BASTARDS!!!!
