Channel Your Inner Gangster with Baddies Smiley Pack
An ongoing conversation here at Smiley Central has us thinking about nostalgia. These days, instances of nostalgia are seen everywhere, but nowhere more so than the entertainment industries. Just take a look at this year’s Academy Awards, which aired last Sunday. Nominated movies included Midnight in Paris, which focused on one writer’s desire to live in Paris in the ’20s, and The Artist, which was a throwback to silent films. Some of our favorite television shows these days don’t even take place in the present. Downton Abbey and Mad Men both have a huge fan base. What is it about nostalgia that makes us think everything is cooler in retrospect?
Take The Godfather movies for example. Those dudes in their suits, ties and guns seem so cool, when they were really wreaking some serious havoc on their families and communities. But they just look so awesome when they do it. Now we’re not telling you to go wild, but maybe you could channel a little more of the swagger seen in The Godfather, Mad Men and Downton Abbey to feel more connected with the past. And donning a slick suit or fancy hat never hurt anyone either.
