quite interesting. Thanks :)
the nerds look nerdier
- before that they look like 70s hangovers - yet after 4 years, 1989 looks kind of 90s. '94 onwards could easily be now.
Nerds in "behind the fashion curve" shocker.
but I'd probably argue that every decade's fashion doesn't really get going with the mainstream until halfway through.
Skinnijeanz didn't become commonplace on everyone (ie. not just kids and students) til about 06/07, for instance.
All the female interns appear to have bonded. Male intern in the middle is enjoying interning with the ladeez. Guy at back with beard is EXCLUDED. It was the worst summer of his life. He just went back to his room to listen to Tool while the rest of them went to drink in the quad.
I might do a graph.
and way too harsh on 1992, which is actually a group of fairly good-looking people.
I found the same thing when I downloaded the Playmates of the Month collection. There's a certain fascination in tracking the various changes in photography style, body shape, bush management, hairstyle. And the landmarks: First black Playmate, first Asian playmate, first bush, first minge, first canoodling twins...
I was so engrossed in what these things meant for society that I forgot to get my old chap out...
I'm not your pornmonger, son.
There is no link.
Oprah Winfrey, Chris Kamara, Jennifer Grey, Abigail Breslin and Luke Wilson.
That's one star-studded set of interns.
Does not become a tradition.
is just too cool for anything ever ever ever. Must be photoshopped, MUST be.
"Hey, guys, you wanna spend this weekend at my parents' place on the coast? It's this big house with tons of globes to mess about with. [aside] Psst, hey Alan, don't wear your Star Trek tshirt! I think Susan digs you but you're coming across as a major dork!"
Or neckerchief guy?
if the DeLorean drops me in the early 90s I'M GOING TO ALTER THE PAST BIG TIME.
i thought nerds could work photoshop. also frat-boy in Dave Matthews Band shirt=evil.
Why couldn't they all get together for a photo? Probably because a 3-way split formed between the frat-bro jerks, the eager girl-nerds and the insular couple-plus-awkward-hanger-on (top right).
That's a classic birl!
Except none of the guys are wearing ties.
They're all great.
- woman in the middle possibly wearing tshirt with vaguely Chinese writing in order to impress Asian student next to her. They awkwardly make out later that evening.
- two guys in the front with identical hair!
- mysterious Ally Sheedy lookalike on the right
- awesome guy on the far right
In fact, I love everyone in that photo.
dressed all in white in this one. He's my favourite.
in '78 on the right. Insane.
Second from the right at the back is The Drums singer
just wasted a wonderous half an hour at work on this thread. Love the hotness graph
