Re: Ivy: The Yuppie Years

As an industry man, I really miss the days of wordy ad copy - am unsure of whether I /like/ it, or like the fuzzy feelings of association and nostalgia that accompany it, though.

Re: Ivy: The Yuppie Years

Remember cutting forms out of newspapers and sending them off with a cheque or money order to buy stuff? Stuff which took two or three weeks to arrive, which you were quite happy with.

Re: Ivy: The Yuppie Years

Mrs Brooks and I sat down to watch the 1987 film Baby Boom starring Diane Keaton t'other night, the intro of which is probably the most yuppie 5 mins ever put to film. New york in its heyday of new balance trainers, trench coats and brooks brothers suits.

This is the only decent clip I can find, no intro sadly
