Something Old Is Something New

The rope chain is back. Cute, huh? Or maybe I'm late, as usual :-)

This photo comes from one of LL Cool J's early CDs, Walking With a Panther.

Saw a good six or seven young, urban, and trendy lads Tuesday night sporting ropes, as I met up with a good friend who'd been out of the country for a few weeks. We're talking L.A. Maybe ropes have been back in your city for a little longer.

The 80s had been teasing to come back for a while. I think that teasing has finally taken hold.

One quick side note. I'm glad the Mohawk/Frohawk thing has taken hold, since all the comeback teasing for the past five years or so.

But I think the Mohawk/Frohawk thing is a slippery slope into the hairdo most of us think should be banned... the mullet. And so does this writer in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Everything new is everything old. Just re-packaged and re-marketed.

That's true, styles and trend are recycled. I don't know if I can hang with the big ropes even though it look good on the panther.
