Quote from: Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse on June 30, 2022, 08:32:30 AMI don't know if this counts, but a while ago I saw Paradise Lost: The Robin Hood Hills Murders (documentary about three murdered little boys and the subsequent stitch-up of three teenagers by the police) and Pure Fucking Mayhem (about the band Mayhem and wider Norwegian black metal scene) and... have you ever associated a feeling with a decade? For a long time I've had a sense that the 90s were gaudy colours and The Simpsons on the surface, but underneath there's something unhealthy and rotting. Probably because I became a teenager in the 90s and started to clue into all the horror in the world generally.

Quote from: touchingcloth on July 01, 2022, 07:28:51 AMLittle plastic doodads with metal prongs you used to find on the ground of unknown origin and with unclear purpose. Looked a bit like this

Quote from: dissolute ocelot on July 01, 2022, 11:38:22 AMYeah, looks like a fuse from a car. I'm sure in the olden days people were always replacing fuses in things, while today it's much rarer (unless your electrics are fucked).
Quote from: touchingcloth on July 01, 2022, 08:40:02 PMNope, they're flat. The image I drew is about the size of a 20p coin, and the things are about 5mm thick if that. The "prongs" are flat rather than round.
Quote from: dr beat on June 30, 2022, 08:13:48 PMGrowing up in Widnes in the 80s, the logo of Imperial Chemical Industries was literally everywhere, staring at you in the supermarket, at garages and from the front of rugby shirts, like a sinister all-seeing (IC) eye:
Quote from: buttgammon on June 29, 2022, 11:52:14 PMYour Derrida book is presumably from this school of designTook a copy of this out of the library once. It was so ugly, I had to keep it hidden away from sight.
Quote from: Alberon on June 30, 2022, 09:37:40 AMI'm not sure you can get proper hauntalogical beyond the early eighties at the latest. TV is generally too professional to do it anymore so it seems unlikely it will be a thing for future generations and anyone who didn't experience it as a kid (as Chip says) in the 70s won't feel it now.
Quote from: Mister Six on July 02, 2022, 04:38:52 AMYEAHHHH. That early 90s faux art deco font, the sole photo on a mostly single-colour background with a different coloured vertical swipe down one side. Been looking around secondhand bookshops a lot recently and seen tons of this sort of thing, though usually in dingy pastel greens/pinks/beiges.
Quote from: Mister Six on July 02, 2022, 04:38:52 AMWhile we're talking 90s, what about album covers that are stylised photos of 3D props, like a kind of low-rent, grungier but more colourful Dave McKean? This sort of thing...
