Return of the Eighties

When Angela Merkel rubbed arms with Putin on the news somebody around remarked: “The cold war is coming back.” Interestingly enough, everywhere I look I see signs of the Eighties returning:

* concerts by Throbbing Gristle, The Cult and OMD in Vienna. Even The Mission have re-united.
* two girls playing with Rubik’s cubes on the subway
* movies are dominated by sequels again, as if the 4th part of “Die Hard” alone wasn’t sign enough
* the comeback of the yuppie (disguised as creative industries manager)
* nuclear power plants are missioned as the best alternative to fossil energy sources

What else?

    it’s really crazy how nuclear power is sneaking back again.
    how long till people are enthusiastic about world war III?
    don’t we ever learn a lesson for good?
