The future was then.

Where can I download the soundtrack?

(Thanks: Fashioning Technology.)

How come that future looks more interesting than our present?

@zentinal - that's the thing with retro-futurstic.. we've lived long enough to see it was all a giant disappointment

but it's never too late to starting living the Future you're waiting for!

At least the music has gotten better. I wonder what haute couture will look like in a thousand years.

Fashion (especially street fashion) in the late 60s-early 70s and the 80s was wild, whimsical, often ludicrous (plaid leisure suits), but always pushing the envelope. From the early 90s onward, it has been unimaginatively treading water (shaven male heads the only new trend to emerge) - rehashing clothing styles of the 60s and 70s with the addition of Spandex, but drained of their original visual wit and inventiveness. Since fashion is one aspect of the culture of the times, what does this say about the generation that came of age in the 90s (today's prime consumers of fashion)? Beats the heck out of me, but it seems noteworthy somehow.

Does that mean I'm on the cutting edge? :-)

Perhaps the shaven edge. ;)

Or maybe just on edge :-)

You get my covented "Michael Stipe" two thumbs up, a guy who makes it look good. Nick Redfern also gets a couple of skyward pointing opposable digits.

Truer than you know!

When do you think women will realize that voluntary baldness isn't "men only"?

My niece did it for a year. Her boyfriend thought it was hot, but she let it grow back because she decided she'd rather have blue hair than no hair. It's now the color of some Tiki Bar paper umbrella drink. But at least you can always find her in a stadium crowd. So you see, there are a few (but, probably far between) game young ladies out there.
