Subject: If you could live in any decade,which one would it be?

Written By: kairosan on 08/13/11 at 2:27 am

I guess I would live back in the eighty's. because of the fashion styles of music back then. 

What decade would you live in if you could?

What would you enjoy most about it?

How does that decade compare to the 2010's?

Why do people hate the 2000's and the early part of 2010's?

The decade of Donnie Darko is my choice.

And my favorite part would be the decadeology.

I'd like to live in the 1960s. Reading about all the social and political movements that occured during that time from a historical viewpoint won't have the same effect as actually observing these things happening all around you.

Right here, right now. 2011 has probably been one of the best years I've had in a long time. If I had to go back I wouldn't want to go back any farther than 2000. The 80s had some great stuff and so did the 90s ( but to a lesser extent the 80s did ) But the stuff I love most all came out of the 21st century.

The 60's did rock. We had the Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis, 'Nam, JFK, LBJ, RFK, MLK, the USS Liberty thing, race riots, above-ground nucular testing, the rise of big screen porn, Richard Nixxon elected, you-name-it.  8)

70s or the 90s, in that order. of decades i didn't actually live through already, the 50s and the 20s seemed pretty cool. in general, i'd like to avoid world wars, violent political upheaval, and global economic depressions. also, leg warmers. so sorry, yall, the 80s are very overrated.

70s, 80s or 90s.
If I had to choose just one - 1980s.
Best decade in the history of mankind.

Written By: Starde on 08/14/11 at 4:31 pm

In order:

1. The 90's - I only remember some of the mid 90's and the late 90's, but I want to relive the entire decade right from the beginning. I'd love to experience the early 90's since I have no recollection of it whatsoever.
2. The 80's - I LOVE 80's music (attending a Michael Jackson, Madonna, etc. concert would've made my life!), films, shows and pop culture. Though I'm not a fan of the fashion, it'd be fun to be wearing 80's style clothing on a daily basis. I'd love to have lived/visited NYC in the mid-late 80's!
3. The 70's - I've been watching VH1's I Love the 70's nostalgia show on Youtube and it'd be fun to visit this decade! The music, the pop culture, the fashion, the films, the shows... I would've love to go on Soul Train, haha.
4. The 60's - I'd love to experience the events that changed and made an impact in US history

Honorable mention: The 40's & 50's (though more so the 1950s) - As a film major, I'd love to experience the Golden Age of Hollywood filmmaking and be in Los Angeles at the time to meet the talented actors, directors and producers who dominated that period

i want to be a punk teenager in 1972-73, so i can be obsessed with led zeppelin IV and the yes album, and they won't have been played out yet -- not even stairway! -- and i want to listen to dark side of the moon the day it comes out, and i want to be high while doing it. and i want a muscle car. and the sexual revolution, i want a piece of that. also, i'll be able to smoke on airplanes.

The second part of XX century: 1950s, the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s - to me those are the best decades of the 20th century The 90s were too bland.
or the early 2000s.

I might be a minority here, but I wouldn't mind being a knight in the Middle Ages dating a beautiful princess or a wealthy man from the Early modern Europe times (roughly the time of the Baroque).

I'm kinda surprised. Being you're only 14. Most kids your age would reply the 60s or 80s.

Yeah, I can see why you'd want to live in the 20s. Not so sure about the 30s though, Lol.

The 2110s. Maybe Jetpacks will cost $15 each and we'll get free pocket teleporters upon hitting 12 years old! Too bad I'll probably be dead by then :(

Well, pop culture was quite nice in the 30s. I liked the movies and the way they dressed back then! I'm not big on jazz, but it's okay I guess.

Culturally, it was a very nice decade!

Well there are pros and cons regarding the 1920's versus the 1930's:

in the 20's u can drink at any age because the mafia doesn't card but in the 30's they started to care about that stuff. In the 1920's the economy was booming and there were several jobs in fields that made a lot of money. Although movies were silent and you wouldn't be able to take your eyes off the movie screen cuz you needed to pay attention to every detail if the movie is not a "talkie" javascript:void(0);

In the 30's booze is legal and much safer to obtain, not to mention the movies had sound. On the other hand there was a great depression going on in the 30's. javascript:void(0);

Also, if you don't like Jazz (which, at the time, was more popular than rap is today) then these are not the decades for you!  ;)
