Brand New – You’re Retro

It’s bothered me for a while now that our future, especially in late capitalist Western society and especially in terms of technology, fashion and the like, will be contaminated by kitsch, knowing winks to nostalgic visions of the future contained in bad sci-fi and old episodes of Tomorrow’s World.

It’s slightly nauseating to think that not only is our future therefore inherently retro, it’s also ironic.

I don’t know where I’m going with this, and it’s hardly some Zizek-ian insight, but this is the shit that bothers me as I lie hungover and tired on a friend’s sofabed listening to 2 young kids playing outside the door. Will these be the kids that wear jumpsuits? And will those jumpsuits be sarcastic?

Here’s a picture of Sylvia Sims to make it all go away.
