Let me give you some examples of what I mean:
1950's: Conservative, traditional, white-wall tires, cardigan sweaters, slow music.
1960's: Rebellion, Rock & Roll, Civil rights movement, hippies.
1970's: Disco, Gas shortage, bell bottoms/flared-leg jeans, end of Vietnam War.
1980's: New Wave, PC's, NES, Reaganomics, Berlin Wall falls, MTV, Denim.
And, it almost seems to stop there. I can come up with a FEW for the next decade:
1990's: Grunge, beginning of the Internet, Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Okay, maybe that's enough... but for the next decade? There's nothing. Watch...
2000's: Smartphones, World Trade Center attacks, Economic Recession
Does this really give you any sort of "flavor"? I don't see it.
So, has anyone else noticed that there has been a decided lack of decade "flavor" lately?
