Mr. Pokeylope: Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: airsupport: And none of the women shave or nor trim their copious furburgers, as was the style of the time.

I live in a house where I work six days a week and still have to cook, do the related shopping, do the laundry, manage homework/bathtime/bedtime, take care of the yard and vehicle maintenance... and I still have to listen to her biatch because the house is a wreck.

I'd take a 50's chick with a bush any day after dealing with the end result of women's lib for the past decade.

/it's not like she trims her bush either
//sometimes I get lucky and she'll at least do her legs
///sad face

It's called D-I-V-O-R-C-E. Or you're going to eventually have one of these.

Eh, the love is there, but I do have a list of "things that I'm not necessarily happy about, but ultimately aren't worth destroying my family over".

The older I get, the more value I find in things like whiskey and mistresses.

If you want to see this in full force hit the San Berdoo Auto Swap. While I don't have it in me to invest the time or money into another uniform (I did enough of that being punk) I think it looks pretty slick.

This is a culture I would gladly embrace fully. I love the esthetic, and miss the sturdiness of things of yore. I also enjoy campy, kitcshy fashion and furniture. Yardsales are a great source for finding such wondrous items :).

/i also like the music, but am also a metalhead, hope that wouldn't disqualify me.
//don't want a caddy though, i'll take a classic T-bird thx.

doublesecretprobation: umm, hot rod/rockabilly/tiki culture ("kulture") has been popular for the better part of a decade now.

Decade? The Stray Cat Strut was released in 1981.

Yes there is.  I had one of those buf-puft asshole wannabes living above me when I was going to school.  He had his schtick down pat, including his penchant for practicing "Stray Cat Strut" on his shiatty Gibson clone at 3:30 in the morning until the the day he was evicted. I honestly think that every person in the apartment building called the police on him at one time or another.

/CSB, yo.
