It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

But how did we get to a point where an artificial, electronic life replaced the simple pleasures of existence? Those who can recall a time before the internet will know exactly what I’m talking about.

SEX, DRUGS AND NOSTALGIA: Another Gen-Xer (proudly) shows his age…

It all comes down to timing, I guess. We each have films that can stop us in our tracks and bring about the immediate symptoms of acute adolescent nostalgia.
