Nostalgia is Good Medicine
Sad or lonely? Try a dose of nostalgia.
Think about the guy who loves to tell the story of when he scored the final touchdown in that championship game even though it was 15 years ago. Everyone knows this guy. Or think about the person that keeps the XM Radio dial firmly on the Sounds of the 90s station. Is that person you? Still diggin' that Nirvana? Or try contemporary fashions. Recently, the apparel I see advertised in magazines makes me feel like I need to bust out some parachute pants or acid washed jeans. Personally, I can't wait until the grunge-style flannels come back in. I am poised to act on that inevitable return to 90s fashions. Look at the recent onslaught of movies like Transformers and GI Joe or the remakes of Friday the 13th and the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street. Glass bottles and aluminum cans are not the only things we recycle. We love the past and nostalgia is big business. But why?
