2. You forgot to mention the horrible furniture

My generation (I was 35 in 1970) had the worst taste of all. Or so my daughter says. I think she's right. Thank God we didn't have the money to buy the furniture I lusted after at the time.

4. Oh, and the cars

With the huge doors that fell off their hinges.

From what I've seen, if it was built in the 60's, it lasted. 70's, it was shit.

12. Some of the best movies and music came from the 70's

By the 80's the corporations owned the film studios and chances of getting anything controversial made disappeared.

And the 70's were also Punk and when rock-n-roll grew up - from love songs to protest songs.

Guys had long hair, women wore what ever they wanted. Polyester gave way to cotton and denim.

my immediate family was all still alive; had a great summer job at 6 flags... I think that was the last year of innocence for me... the next year, death began regular visits to my family starting with my father and maternal grandmother dying within 2 days of one another...

13. Locking

After a discussion in the Host's Forum, it was brought up that video content must meet SOP requirement:

"Statement of Purpose

Post videos, images, or any other multimedia content about politics, issues, and current events. No posts about Israel/Palestine, religion, guns, showbiz, or sports unless there is really big news. No conspiracy theories. No whining about DU."
