Has anyone else noticed a recent onset of nostalgia for the late 80’s / early 90’s in our collective cultural mind? (woah. That was deep.)
Maybe it’s because those of us born in the early 80’s are now entering our 30’s and subconsciously littering film, television, and clothing with nostalgia for our youth. (again, I am just on a roll here. Maybe I should teach a class?)
In any case, I admit I recently sat down with my kids and watched one of my favorite childhood movies from the early 90’s -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Yes, the movie that filled my 8-year-old vocabulary with things like ‘Tubular!’, ‘Radical!’, and ‘Cowabunga Dude!’ Not to mention- had me playing with bizarre Turtle merchandise, like toy military tanks that shot plastic pizza’s at unsuspecting victims.
That thing was rad.
They just don’t make ‘em like that anymore. And, well, thank god for that.- Despite the fond memories, I have to admit, the corniness was cringe-worthy.
We seem to forget just how much of the early 90’s was chuck full of corny corniness in-cornated.
Some things should just stay in the pastJ
Are you feeling the late 80’s, early 90’s revival?
