As the year 2019 cadences into its autumnal season here in the Eastern Corridor, we are preparing at the Retro Revival for one of the most outstanding decades to come! That’s right, the Roaring Twenties are back! But this time, they’ve got a particularly ferocious ‘roar’ about them. Unlike the years of prohibition and the stock market crash of 1928, the year 2020 is already filling with milestones, great events, friendly bonding, and adventure.
What we can tell you right now is that we have outgrown the RRBlog’s mission, which means we have to expand well-ahead of the new year. We have decided that in order to encapsulate the past but continue to advocate exclusively for the best pieces of yesteryear, while complimenting meaningful discussions and challenging the norms- all in the name of a new version of traditional- we have to also include our rambunctious adventures and our rebellious spirits. This means that the Retro Revival has evolved! We are humbled and excited to introduce our readers- new and old;
Retro, Curious, Rebellious: The Revival
You see, we are inquisitive creatures; we question the world as it has transformed into a highly-modern and sometimes inefficient system. We are retro; we sample and implement facets of the ages before ours into today’s world to lead by example. However, we are also rebellious; in order to advocate well for a better tomorrow, we have to break the new norms like we offered to the DORIS group of 2015-16 in pursuit of the change we want to see.
It gives us a broader platform to introduce topics of discussion that have political heat, debate, and even some dissent as they relate back to the way things were. It also gives us a chance to integrate some advocacy on behalf of historic sites, both in need and already supported. We look forward to the chance to bring you something lively, different, and engaging, but all the same retro and timeless.
