Since 1998, Charles Phoenix has been presenting impeccably selected slideshows culled from his colossal collection of thrifted Kodachrome-and-etc. slides depicting America as it once was: a sort of gentle paleontological re-presentation of what you might now call the Mad Men era. Fancy hair, fancy cars, fancy foods and maybe even fancy toilet paper leis: this was the Instagram of its day, aged from fad to trend to kitsch and nostalgia and maybe now into a kind of distant but genuine affection. The analog pop-cult circle of life, in other words. Expect emphasized holiday cheer for this seasonal version, including at least one extremely unnatural looking artificial Christmas tree, and remember: like so many things, it seemed like a great idea at the time.
