Where the past still shines

I find it funny that 2016-2017 is more like 2006-2007 but 1996-1997 was nothing like 1986-1987

I know I already mentioned this but, I don't get it? Shouldn't 2017 feel more distinctive from 2007. I mean in 1997, you could easily tell that year apart from 1987, not just with the music, but the movies, TV shows, fashion, and technology as well. Why aren't the 2010s any different than the 2000s, but the 90s were different than the 80s (aside from 1990-1992), I just don't get it!?

Because you're wrong.

Fashion, art, entertainment, etc. are all notably different from the way they were 10 years ago.

In addition, when you look at further removed decades through the lens of only the most memorable or iconic products (as one would if one were to make a comparison by searching the internet with terms like "popular 90s movies" and "popular 80s movies"), they will naturally appear more distinctive due to what is essentially a cherrypicked data set.

At least fashion is taking a turn for the better.
