HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE 80S: Pac-Man and The Empire Strikes Back turn thirty today? I mean in general dividing our cultural history into 10-year segments is artificial and not particularly useful, but goddamn, that is a whole lot of 1980s-specific iconography getting started on one day. How many other decades have that specific a dividing line? Where we can point to it and say. "yes, things became different right here."
