Even if you're not a fan of Gilette's history, from its involvemet with NFL players known for their violence to their gendered razors (what even are those?), the company's new ad about toxic masculinity hits a nerve, highlighting outdated masculine tropes, some from the 1980s, that today's world has definitely outgrown and is ready to move away from.
Whether you're from the 80s or just really interested in 80s culture, you may consider yourself pretty well-versed on all things 80s. Maybe you were mad for Madonna and Michael Jackson, rocking the fingerless gloves. Maybe you had leg warmers to die for. Whatever memories from the 1980s that you carry, you can put them to use in these fun 80s trivia games to test your knowledge!
From its rich 80s nostalgia to its dystopian setting to the fact that Wil Wheaton narrated the audiobook (sigh... my first crush), Ready Player One tempts me to read it. I've heard mixed reviews, from "It's the perfect geekdom escape!" to "It's a total white male fantasy," and I definitely still want to read it to see for myself, but now the movie itself is out and coaxing viewers in with its Easter eggs and nods to all of the things we love.
Were you born between 1977 and 1982? If so, you are part of a microgeneration that is now known as the Xennial generation. This generation is part Gen X and part Millennial, part pessimist and part optimist. These people are the last of their kind who spent their childhoods outside without updating their social networks with their life statuses, but they entered into the technological world in their late teens and 20s and are still savvy about it.
Last week we discussed 1980s fashion in general, so I thought it would be fun to remember our favorite (and least favorite!) styles of pants from the decade.
Valentine’s Day is over, St. Patrick’s is coming up and you know what that means… the “official” holiday season is over! That means it’s time for some non-holiday related theme parties, and an 80s house party is one of the best themes. Not only is the playlist already set (use any 80s theme on Spotify or Pandora), but you probably already have the right outfit at home as well. Tease your hair or put on some sunglasses at night and poof, you’re set.
I decided to watch some old ‘80s TV episodes on Netflix today. One particular TV show that caught my eye was Knight Rider. I remember making it a point to watch these shows when I was a kid. Back then I thought that Knight Rider was one of the top shows on the television.
