I like DeLoreans

Nostalgia is a hell of a thing. Or maybe it isn’t, I don’t even know anymore. Haven’t people gotten pretty sick of nostalgia by now? Aren’t we in the midst of the great nostalgia backlash? Don’t people now despise their once treasured memories after all of this overexposure? Don’t you all hate remembering stuff now? Hasn’t the whole thing gotten to be ONE. SICK. JOKE? Well anyway… here’s everything nostalgic for you… together…!
There’s a promise inherent in revisiting the things you used to love but have, for whatever reason(s), left behind. It’s like putting on your favourite pair of jeans or pulling a warm blanket all the way over your head on a cold and stormy night. Something that’s familiar, something that’s so comforting that it becomes sort of a shield from the terrible world around you.
