Coming soon: That ’70s party 2

This Tuesday, prepare for a trip 30 …wait no, 50 years back in time – to the 1970s. The ’70s were a tumultuous period in recent history. Women and minorities continued their fight for equal rights, hippy movement was at its height and anti-war sentiments led to the end of Vietnam War. Oil crises struck the world, forcing people to stand in gas lines and switch for smaller, more economic cars, and also bringing along a more environmentally conscious world view.

Sexual revolution continued its triumph – many earlier taboos were undone, adult entertainment became popular and some pornographic films even managed to compete in the box office against the likes of Godfather, Jaws and Rocky. Bruce Lee popularized martial arts movies and Star Wars launched sci-fi movies to new heights. Men were crazed by Charlie’s Angels and women wanted to marry Burt Reynolds.

1970s are also famous for weird and funny fashion: bell bottomed pants, turtle necked shirts, oversized collars, massive sideburns and porno mustache. Hippy style continued to gain popularity and styles reflecting emerging music directions like disco, punk, glam rock and heavy metal gained popularity.

We will meet at usual time, 21.00 CET, in the garden of Richman Mansion that became famous in the ‘70s for the supposed mind blowing orgies that Lester’s been dreaming of. Dress code and vehicle choice should be either period correct, something from pop culture or maybe you have some other ideas. Anyway, be ready to explain why your choice fits in that time period. I hope you can find something beneath all the Bigness puffers but you’ll have a full weekend to prepare so I’m expecting some creative outcomes.  Also, think about awesome ‘70s music you’d like the DJ to play during the party. I have already prepared a draft for activities and playlist but if you have any ideas to suggest, don’t hesitate to tell about them.

I hope to see you all at the party!
