ARE YOU A SELF-CONSCIOUS GUY? Vintage Educational PSA Film {c. 1951}

Had a lot of fun posting “Shy-Guy” yesterday, so thought we’d continue showcasing some of these awesome and entertaining vintage educational films. They sure were worried about the self-esteem of teenagers.

This one shows how feelings of self-consciousness keep a high school boy from doing his classwork well or making friends easily. Poor dude feels so out of whack ALL THE TIME, until he realizes everyone else feels self-conscious too and if you learn to remind yourself of this, you will be fine!

And when he realizes this watching his buddy totally goof at ping pong after just being so dashing in a tuxedo, he should have realized that of course he felt better wearing a tux! Who doesn’t feel bad ass in a tux?!

 

Again, a great collection of classic American style from the early 1950s which still has that timeless 40s vibe lingering. This is a look that seems to be really permeating in the fashion world more and more lately. . .

Especially couldn’t take my eye off a wicked panther graphic sweater one of the featured students wears while yacking on the phone with confidence…check it out! The panther motif is a super bad ass graphic that was quite popular, and today, a very rare vintage find.

We featured a good looking Vintage Panther Graphic Sweater on The Eye of Faith years ago, but you can totally see this EXACT look for a hefty price point from Alessandro Michele over at GUCCI!

Love anyone bringing vintage styles to the masses, but its always good to know your shit and see the influences in the world around us. This is how the {PAST} helps inspire the {PRESENT} and shape our {FUTURE}.

Well enough ado. Thanks OLD TIME TV for uploading this and all the other wicked vintage content you post on your channel!

Music Minute: “Paul’s Theme” from CAT PEOPLE

The recent death of Donna Summer really struck us by surprise, and in researching more about the 70s icon, we were introduced to another icon of music – Giorgio Moroder.

We spoke to the insane talents of the music maven responsible for some of the greatest songs every written (“What a Feeling”, “Call Me”, The Neverending Story !!!!), and are back paying our respects.

This time it’s “Paul’s Theme” from the film Cat People, starring Natassja Kinski and David Bowie- a wild musical odyssey that goes out to a very special somebody out there!

{YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE}

Sincerely,
