I hated the 80s. Maggie, that whole greedy, loadsa, sloany, yuppy mentality, push, push, etc… Who perfectly represents that time? Gordon Gecko? No, for me, sleazy but perversely affable Leisure Suit Larry, born about the time I started at my first Uni.
That’s the good thing about the arrow of time– saying goodbye to a period you feel little nostalgia for. If time-travel is invented, I will not be revisiting that decade. Well, maybe I will, just to flick that butterfly’s wing and destroy yuppies, millionaire builders and the godawful people I shared student houses with. Fresh Meat indeed.
