    ...cheating a bit in the other direction (1980) but I loved the style... [​IMG]

    If most of you guys saw modern 18-30 year olds dressing like this you'd all call them hipsters. But because the photos were taken in the 70s it's ok?

    That said, i like a lot of this stuff

    that's because there's a huge difference between doing something different at a time when it *was* different/shocking/eyebrowraising (in the 70s), than doing it with hindsight as retro-reference (hipsters today)

    C'mon. I understand that. I was merely talking about the clothes/ensembles themselves. Also, i'd argue that it is as almost acceptable to dress like that now as it was in the 70s. It is perfectly acceptable within that counter-culture both then and now, although the mainstream views them very differently. I do agree with you on the retro-reference bit though. Also, props for the jonathan richman pic [​IMG] He is a god. And also super nice. Seeing him last month was a great mark off my musical checklist. Still upset i had to work the night waits played in jacksonville. Would've been another mark off.

    Oh that's right. I'm sorry for busting up the over 30 party people are having. I forgot you can't understand and appreciate a music/time period unless you lived it despite having not only listened to a majority of music from the era intently, but also written on it. My mistake. I just felt like breaking up the nostalgia-fest a little by playing devil's advocate.
