For a moment I didn’t think this was a joke. I mean, the Baby Boomers really are getting pretty old.

And in so many ways they’ve become the insufferable old squares they originally were rebelling against. Their distinctively bizarre music and inscrutable fashion sense are now as permanent and unyielding as that of the folks in Lawrence Welkworld.

This is what mainstream looks like. And there’s nothing more harmlessly mainstream today than Sixties nostalgia.
