In a modern view everything was ugly before our time (except perhaps the time our time takes its inspiration from, whatever that time may be at whenever the present may be - there's always a source, usually there's the rejecting of the previous era while glorifying the/an era before that).

I don't agree with that Uptimist. Look at the 80s: we had those cool, sterile interiours back then, some nice cars, interesting video clips on TV, hairstyles, etc etc. In the 1990s people missed the cosiness of the 1970s a bit and suddenly you had to have old stuff in your house, have rusty things all over the place, and don't get me started about the cars! Boring boring boring.

For me, musically speaking, the 90's were fantastic and I very much look forward to the revival once everyone's done with the 80's.

Well yeah, but you're a product of that time. I don't find the 80's any more appealing than the 90's.

In the 90's people rejected the 80's (though that's exaggeration but still) and looked to the 70's then. In the 80's there were other ideals. I caricaturized the situation, but it's still there

Old comic book... magazine covers were really rather gay.

I saw that in a documentary about DC Comics. The part that I saw.

For example this one:

But in the 80s people didn't look so much to an earlier era. And you're right that I am a product of the 80s, but really, nothing in all eras before or after was as boring as most 90s cars:





And in no other era before of after would a car manufacturer come with something as unexciting and spectaculess as the Nissan Sunny:



Luckily we got the Internet back then because for the rest there was nothing to get excited about. This changed in the 2000's, and quickly, luckily. Life is more fun now than back in the 1990s.

Ambivalence - "the coexistence within an individual of positive and negative feelings toward the same person, object, or action, simultaneously drawing him or her in opposite directions."

the 90s was basically a toned down version of the 80s, no? Which, all things considered, was a good thing.

But really, I'm no expert on the 90's and 80's. I was born on the latter, experienced the former, but only gained an independent world-view after them. So my views aren't really realistic.

Of course, car design isn't the only aspect of design
(And on that subject, this to me is pretty much on the same level of interesting as that previous one, whatever car it may be (it's from the 80's though))


And I don't know what all those pictures are about, but as far as I know it was like that in the 80's too But like I said, I'm no expert. I find them both pretty horrible in style, but so do I also find the 70's, 60's, 50's etc. There are of course some aspects in each era more appealing than elsewhere, but overall for example clothing is pretty horrid all-round.

The VW Golf was something entirely different when it came out. It replaced the beloved Beetle. It was a stunningly new design, completely different from all the VW had done before. But didn't it appear in the end of the 1970s already?
