miss June. I miss June and July and the sandwich I ate last night. I miss the delicious Negroni I had a month ago; I miss the way my grandparents’ house used to smell; I miss the summer I learned to ride my bike, albeit poorly, and the freedom that suddenly allowed me. I miss late 90s high school movies and 1980s romantic dramas. I miss All That, Bug Juice, Girls Versus Boys, the first few seasons of Degrassi and everything that ever happened on The O.C. I miss my high school playlists and inside jokes with my high school friends. I miss the way people dressed in decades that I wasn’t even alive in. I miss just a second ago because the sun dropped a little lower. I miss everything, all the time. I am a total nostalgia baby.
Good thing for me, given that it’s Nostalgia Month on Man Repeller. This September, we’re going to explore the past and bring it into the current.
Speaking of now, now’s a great time to let us know great movies of the past whose style you’d like to see: recreated, dissected, discussed, re-done because it didn’t scratch your itch in the first place. What TV shows do you miss and still reference? Are your relationships stuck in the past? Do you miss the underpinnings of the 1800s? Are you running around and smashing furniture because you so badly want someone to wax poetic on yesteryear fashion? Are you, in fact, the kind of person who only watches old stuff and needs to read someone else who does the same talk about it?
Great! I can’t wait. Tell us absolutely everything and more in the comment section below as we rev up our brains for the month ahead.
Miss you already and I haven’t even closed out of this window yet.
