* I do think some of this nostalgia--and here I paraphrase very inaccurately what Fuuma once expounded upon--is perhaps based on a perverted ~1950s perception of the ideal successful white male in suburbia with a two car garage a family and a pup named spot. This does seem a bit restrictive and possibly forced, that might just be my misperception.
I somehow managed to insert the word "bald" into this the first time I read it. Not entirely sure why.
Also, it's interesting that the poster posits that the entire MC concept is backward-looking and nostalgic...I, for one, loathe nostalgia, although I'm sure there are a bajillion exceptions to that absolutist and blanket statement.
