Whither The Space Age? aka Where's My Jetpack, Eh?






Now, I would never normally consider re-posting anything from Vice Magazine's Dos and Don'ts; it's just that the accompanying description of this photo concurred with my lament that the Space Age I was promised in 2010 hasn't really arrived. . .

"If there's one thing 2010 clears out, I hope it's all the fake nostalgia for "e'ers longe gone" and wearing ratty compilation outfits that make you look like a time-travelling street urchin. Let's make this the year humans finally start dressing our age."
