I’m sorry but this comic is completely opaque. What the fuck are you trying to say?
Andrew, they take their 80s nostalgia vaccine, but 90s nostalgia comes swarming in around them in the last 3 panels.
I don’t know what Hot Chelle Rae means, but I’m sure it’s something exciting.
Lived too long, I guess. Can’t keep my nostalgia decades straight anymore. As for Hot Chelle Rae, if only there was a way to look things up while you are on the Internet.
oh oh oh i like it like that riding with windows doowowown
Apparently, I need a booster shot for both decades, as I bought a Tuxedomoon CD and a Julianna Hatfield CD yesterday. Of course, I’m a historian, so we are sort of professional obligated to be nostalgic….
See I solve this by only being nostalgic for decades I haven’t lived through.
But good Commodore, that’s not nostalgia is it? Doesn’t nostalgia demand some sort of hazy remembrance of a time you remember fondly (even if in reality, it sucked?)? How can I have Yugo-nostalgia, if I never lived in Socialist Yugoslavia, for example. Isn’t that some other phenomenon?
See, this is why I didn’t look up Hot Chelle Rae myself. If there is any redemptive quality to either Smashmouth or Sugar Ray, it’s that they don’t exist anymore.
@Mindysan According to “Losing My Edge” by LCD Soundsystem, you can have “borrowed nostalguia for the unremembered 80s”. I think it’s the best sort because it’s easier to like a decade you didn’t see the bad side of.
i like this one. thanks!
Now if only record labels would support good music again.
