Re: The Dark Age

Each decade becomes intensely unfashionable shortly after its passing.
 About twenty years later, it becomes a Golden Era for a new
generation.  As someone who was born in '69, I distinctly recall that
it was common knowledge in the 80's that the 70's were the worst
music, fashion and politics of all time.  The idea that bell bottoms
would ever become fashionable again was unthinkable to teenagers of
the time, and yet, they did.
