I'm trying not to make this an Eighties Nostalgia Blog, but I think I'm failing. Here's a picture that I mostly ignored back then when it hung on every other frat boy's wall, along with the Soloflex guy (couldn't they notice how homoironic that was, even then), the St. Pauli Girl, and the Nagel prints (ditto). This ad for Maxell tapes by Steve Steigman, of the Bauhaus' Peter Murphy seated in a Le Corbusier chair, is near-iconic. I tried to be cool but secretly I wanted one for my very own dorm room. Now I have one. In my garage.
