long live the 70’s!

a bereaved b-lite emailed me the other day about alex chilton’s passing.   she was mourning the death of a 70’s icon.

i was born in the 80’s but grew up in the philippines, so it was essentially the 70’s.  disco served as lullaby.  my parents dressed up in floral prints and hip-hugging bell bottoms to take me to the park.  and this cartoon was an afternoon treat:

check out plastic man’s chest-bearing gold-belted red swim superhero suit and white solar shields.  just the perfect outfit to battle the evil clam pirate while showing off his buff physique and sexy hair. 

nothing screams 70’s more than having a crime fighter who looks like a gigolo.
