I Want To Live In The 1980sOkay so this is something i have been interested in for a long time now.
i am a majorly big fan of 1980s memorabilia. i have always been enthused about the culture and overall style of the 80s. now i have gotten to the point that i feel as if i was born in the wrong time.
i have always liked most things from the 80s when it came to music, film, fashion, cars, and even the architecture of the 80s, but also the cultural norms from that very time period. starting with music. i remember playing the axel foley theme from beverly hills cop on my guitar in my highschool performance and i got laughed at because i was playing a song thats almost 3 decades old, not some comic book remake theme song or some chick flick crap. but i love the music from the 80s, the electronic feel of the synthesiser and the electric drumkit like on Dire straight's money for nothing, or what about the cars and their rock sound with the synthesiser, good stuff. i'm also inspired by prince and his music, and his all female group vanity 6 who were the real sexy when it came to hot music. what happened to the curly hair like what sammy hagar had. i have very curly 80s hair and the amount of times people told me to cut it really makes me wonder why i;m am here in the 21st century. i would even change my curvy 1994 saab gm crap for a nice angular 900 model from the 80s even tough this car is older and isnt as fast. rambo was my motivation for working out and i have now been at the gym for a good 8 months now and still going, i always wanted that rambo look, i dont care what girls think, i workout to please myself not them, which brings me to my next topic, girls. girls seemed so simple at the time and seemed nicer and there was none of that clubbing scene which we have nowadays. i am sick of hearing older people going on about their success stories with finding their future wed at some geriatric disco playing flock of seagulls or some wonderful sexy 80s music coming from a pink lipped babe because i am so jealous of them having a dicso in their time and all i have are those nightclub playing that rap crap non stop. girls today seem so complicated and the good old night at the disco and the movies wont please a girl anymore because men like me have become their doormats. what axel rose, awesome musician before he got those weird dreadlocks, and how curly hair was acceptable, for example rambo, sammy hagar, slash the guitarist, and even young bon jovi. man i love 80s culture but i would be ridiculed and exile from the current social scene because of this. this makes me rather unhappy because i cannot simply express myself as a fan of the 80s because people will think i am a dated, behind loser. even the movies seemed awesome. what happened to good old cop car chase scenes when angular cars would smash through cities and how aviators made cops tough and films showing this raw kind of thrilling action. i wish these days had this stuff. i watched beverly hills cop and fletch and i just loved everything about those two films. but these new movies nowadays seem to be really unoriginal and are done for the money. what happened to the action hero being a man with pecs and biceps and machine guns, nowadays our hero is this skinny, chiseled faced, high-school heartthrob that makes 12 year olds cry and teenage adolescent girls scream. this is bullshit, i hate the current trends and how much it focuses on sexual appeal and money and image. girls back then with wild hair impress me more than the girls of today who walk around fingering their iphones and have a changing handbag. blah, i hate this new ****, i miss the old ****. and what about arnie, remember how he was worshipped as an athlete and accomplished actor, nowadays he is poked fun of just like chuck norris, yes these jokes were funny but they get so old when theres constant jokes about them all the time. geez, i might stop it here but thats my rant. one of my dreams is to live into this small utopian world where the theme is the 1980s. it would be a place for creativity, fun, imagination, girls who dont use phones and like chocolates and disco nights, and men who are friendly, and dont beat up people who drive mustangs and chevys and 1980s angular cars like the lamborghini and ferrari testarossa and stuff like that. and awesome fluoro guitars that have amazing distortion with fast solos and big haired musical geniouses and lots of van halen, michaelangelobatio, poison and their unskinny bop, and even some of the other musical genres of the 80s. okay thats enough. peace out....
