Title: "Stakeout"
Words: 953
Warnings: None.
Summary: The year is 1966. A stakeout gets boring, so Walter-as-Rorschach and Dan end up bickering about the Beatles talking. Bonus, Rorschach complains about those goddamned hippies.

60s > 00s

Recently, I've been thinking of something positive to say about the noughties.

Since I had nothing nice to say about this clusterfuck excuse for a decade, I've decided to focus on another and entirely more badass decade-- the 60s!




The FIERCE levels radiating from these fashions are through the roof. Seriously, when did everyone become so boring?



Garage bands are probably my favorite part of that 60s (granted, garage bands' prime heyday was in the 70s-80s, but the garage band movement really started in the 60s). Most of these bands weren't very successful (if they were sort of lucky, they could maybe land a small label 45 and score some airplay with local channels), but I love them because of their style/rhythm. Here's a clip from Patti's Groove's "It Won't Last Long":

Retro-Futurism is what I really, really want the future to look like. Technologically advanced, yet classy... with lots of martinis and fedoras and pencil skirts. Goddammit, I know it's stupid and idealistic ... but you have to admit that the optimism people felt during the 1950s -60s about technology was adorable and somewhat magical.



We need to start making hovering, chrome-covered Pontiacs, STAT. If cars could freaking hover, it would bring the American automobile industry out of the funk it's currently in. Airtight logic, yes? Yes.





ROCKETSHIP Subways?? Yes, please.

A Retro-Futuristic Phonebooth.... made totally obsolete by cellphones :(

Joan Holloway (Christina Henricks) is the new Marylin Monroe. I'm not joking, this woman is sexy as hell. 


See for yourself:


 














Is that a pen necklace?! If so, I want one desperately.
