    I think Total Recall is still a cool movie. Big Grin

    Anyone outside the UK probably won't have heard of Roland Rat, but I used to think this song was cool as shit. Now it just makes me laugh so I'd say it's still a bit cool for that.

    Back in the 1970s, pastel coloured kitchen appliances were thought to be very cool.

    Yes, there was a period of madness when avocado green was considered a sophisticated design colour.
    Go figure.

    Here is a bathroom to match.

    Wasn't that the 70's hippie era when all those crazy colors came out?

    The timing coincides, but that is all.
    It wasn't the teenagers leaving home and becoming hippies who bought pastel coloured appliances and fixtures.
    It was their suburban straight-laced middle class parents.

    Remember the big ghetto blaster portable stereos?
    They were really cool in the years before the Walkman and later the iPod personal stereos arrived.
