I may be a bit too obsessed with Mad Men.
The 50’s have become my favourite era of all time. Their lifestyles were modern, only restricted by limited technology then. It was the era of glamour, women dressed in full skirts, pointed bras, marcel waves, red lips with a cigarette in hand. They seem to be oozing with natural class that our generation cannot match. It also saw the birth of Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra into the musical world, both of whom stood the test of time and remain popular still, further proving the timeless chic of the 50’s. Yet another case in point: vintage mercedes benzs are still highly coveted collectibles. Everything was grander and more beautiful back then.
Technology ruined the cool. Of course I wouldn’t be able to survive without technology now, but if it was to be taken away from every single one of us like it never was invented- no internet, no blackberry – I think we’d all be doing just fine. Better off in fact. With technology our rights to privacy were revoked. I long for the air to be filled with mystery and desire again.
Maybe I’m just bitter, because I’m not a texter. I am not the sort of person to hold conversations over text, and technology really works to my DISadvantage. Technology complicates things. Not to mention is an unhealthy form of distraction, as evidenced by this blog post.
I am also sick of the trash that is Jersey Shore. What is wrong with people?
