Summer of 84

Man, just like with Ready Player One, Wolf in White Van, and a lot of others from the past . . . four, five years? this one’s also kind of “of my age group.” Meaning: I was twelve in 1984. So of course I’ll see this—I mean, I think I’d be there just for the content—but, too, I wonder what role nostalgia is playing in it. Pynchon in V says that we all have a certain homesickness (maybe that was his word? been a while) for the decade we were born in. Dude’s right. So, I guess I’m cool if that’s part of my consumer profile, now. If it means more like this, then, sure.
