It's really time I get this out in the open. But I love the '60s. It seems that most of the blogs I read they love the '20s, '30s, '40s and '50s but what about the SIXTIES? Is it because the world drastically changed? Suddenly we were flying out in outer space, girls were wearing pants, people were listening to rock'n'roll, people were smoking pot, Vietnam was happening? Sometimes I wonder.
I notice people commenting on '60s fashions, and eye makeup. Sometimes I wonder if all people remember was the makeup and, oh, the hippies. Gotta love hippies.
And then I realize, it's the movies. And maybe the music too. People love classic films. I love classic films too!! But I love the sixties too. I was born about 50 years too late, I do believe. Who wants to listen to metal when they have '60s music? And what is up with clothing nowadays? We don't want to go back to the '80s styles and yet scarily enough I think we just might be going there, again. Who wants that?
But I'm just ranting.
I think I need to find one person who is my kindred spirit and loves the sixties as I do, besides my dear Aunt (you know who you are) who can sit around and talk to me about sixties music, clothes, movies, and history for hours on end.
Some of you may comment on this and tell me I'm CRAZY because the sixties was such a CRAZY era. And, yes, this may be true, but the world changed so drastically in that decade. It's amazing to read about! And some of you may comment and say you do love the sixties, well please do comment and tell me that! I need to hear it from somebody.
