if you liked the 70's, you were either coked out or snorting pcp (or perhaps you were smoking skunkweed laced with pcp). certainly, you weren' really there. no way. it was an extremely dismal time full of the worst sort of posing as ritualized culture. money is all that mattered and nobody had any of it.
sort of like today. i see real big parallels to the current cultural moment.
i can also see the big change starting, too. learn to surf it.
yeah, i think it was unintentional, too. it was obviously the last roar of a dinosaur band using a dinosaur stylist from a dinosaur art movement. both the band and the poster artists staggered a long for another couple of years and fell over flat on their faces and vanished for years and years.
now, we all think the 70's was so cool. boy, i was there and it was really really not a cool time at all. honest. just look at this poster. this WAS cool then. get it?
the seventies really sucked bigtime. even early punk sucked. man that decade just sucked (sorry i'm getting so emotional about it). IT SUCKED!
another couple of things about this poster. the aircraft is the infamous "flying wing" from the fifties. it was designed to drop atomic bombs. it was so difficult to handle that it made it through a couple of test flys and was scrapped. it cost more than any airplane ever up until that point. sorta like the band 'wings'. get it? dinosaurs flying boondoggles into the sunset, all shiny and beautiful and useless.
maybe unintentional, but a perfect metaphor for a bloated dying era.
