80s Preppy quotes by Martijn Benders
#5. Movements in literature were not caricatures - in the sense that they actually functioned as an ideology in politics does. As now a monopolistic ideology in politics prevails in the literature as well a single movement prevails: that of networking as a literary quality. Quality = networking is the magic formula: take a Krijn Peter Hesselink, never managed to score a positive review but reviews are old news: it is only referential authority trickling down from that network pyramid that counts. Thus, nowadays its perfectly possible to be on top of the Pyramid without ever getting a positive review, or - even worse - I even see people rising in literary ranks that have never written any books at all. Ergo, your point that another ideology would make a 'caricature' of literary history is exactly the same reasoning used by neoliberals to deconstruct any political change: another ideology? Impossible, because they no longer exist, only we still exist.

In this way you get a pyramid shape you also see in popular music. It's still the bands from the 70's and 80's who earn the big money. New talent can't really play ball anymore. This of course embedded in a sauce of eternal talent shows, because the incumbent males have to just keep pretending they are everyone's benefactors. In the literature its the same: it is still Pfeijffer that gets the large sums of money from the Foundation of Literature, and it's still Samuel Vriezen pretending that that doesn't matter.

80s Preppy quotes by Jean Thompson
#6. She'd permed her hair to within an inch of its life. When she moved her head, the mass of hair followed along behind her a split second later.
Perhaps you had to live through the late 70's, early 80's to appreciate this. #Quote by Jean Thompson
80s Preppy quotes by Adam Schlesinger
#7. In the '80s, they were using an awful lot of technology but hadn't really figured out how it worked yet ... You had these really great, simple pop songs turned into these gigantic overproductions. #Quote by Adam Schlesinger
80s Preppy quotes by Michael Koryta
#8. Chris Columbus, who directed the first two Harry Potter films and was the family comedy king through the '80s and '90s - 'Mrs. Doubtfire,' 'Home Alone,' etc. - has acquired rights to 'The Cypress House' and is working on the script himself, with intent to direct. #Quote by Michael Koryta
80s Preppy quotes by Joe Rogan

80s Preppy quotes by Jennifer Sky
#11. The '80s were fabulous. The '90s sucked, and the '70s were just a sad, sad time in human history. Go 1980s! There's something that's just so cute about that time. And not just yellow nail polish and 'I'm a loner.' #Quote by Jennifer Sky
80s Preppy quotes by Curtis Armstrong
#12. I'm at least getting my foot in the door as far as doing straight dramatic parts, which no one would have ever considered me for in the '80s. I never objected to that because I love doing comedy, and I'm not the kind of actor that insists that unless you're doing a serious dramatic role, you're not acting. #Quote by Curtis Armstrong
80s Preppy quotes by Ernest Cline
#13. I feel like I was hit by all of geek culture at once while I was growing up in the '70s and '80s. Saturday morning cartoons like 'Star Blazers' and 'Robotech.' Live action Japanese shows like 'Ultraman' and 'The Space Giants.' #Quote by Ernest Cline
80s Preppy quotes by Reid Scott
#14. If I'm not barefoot, you'll probably find me with a pair of New Balance on. And I'm not one of those hipster-jump-on-the-band-wagon-ironically-cool NB fans. I've been rocking those kicks since they were true nerd shoes. Since the '80s, yo! Word. #Quote by Reid Scott
80s Preppy quotes by Cat Power
#15. From folk to tribal to Cab Calloway, Cole Porter, Gershwin to the Rolling Stones, whose first record was all covers, to country-western, bebop, blues, and even the referencing in classic hip hop to cliched love ballads of the '80s or whatever - that is kinda gone, and that's just terrifying to me. #Quote by Cat Power

#16. I was a child of the '80s. #Quote by Rob Lowe
80s Preppy quotes by Tara Lynne Barr
#17. I've been lucky enough to play roles that are not just the preppy cheerleader or sullen emo girl. I've been able to play roles that are really vast and varied and very three-dimensional. Fingers crossed that it remains the same. #Quote by Tara Lynne Barr

#20. In the late '80s and early '90s, there was a slightly retro drum sound that was popular in hip-hop music called the 808 bass drum sound. It was the bass drum sound on the 808 drum machine, and it's very deep and very resonant, and was used as the backbone as a lot of classic hip-hop tracks. #Quote by Steve Albini
80s Preppy quotes by William Beckett
#21. In the recording process I do listen to other artists a lot and other albums and albums I am loving lately, or ones that I still love that came out in the 80s or 70s. #Quote by William Beckett
80s Preppy quotes by Richard Carmona
#22. As a young surgeon in training at the University of California San Francisco General Hospital in the early '80s, my colleagues and I were inundated with an epidemic of young men with fevers, rashes, swollen lymph nodes and eventually death. #Quote by Richard Carmona
80s Preppy quotes by Hal Hartley
#23. 9/11 was my first day teaching at Harvard University. My classes were all canceled and I got back to town two days later. I'm one of those people who doesn't think the world has changed any at all since 9/11. It just seemed to be almost inevitable, something like that. That's one of the reasons why the backstory of Fay Grim goes all the way back into the '80s. I was trying to sketch out the continuity of all this hanky-panky between the security agencies of the world. #Quote by Hal Hartley
80s Preppy quotes by Rhys Darby
#24. I guess, on my list, going back to some old American stuff and British stuff that I used to love in the '80s, would be a British show called Dad's Army, which recently just turned into a movie. #Quote by Rhys Darby

#25. I've just grown a little disappointed with 'Muppets in the Old West', 'Muppets Under Water' and all these weird concept movies. I just want to go take it back to the early 80's, when it was about the Muppets trying to put on a show. That's what I'm trying to bring back. #Quote by Jason Segel
80s Preppy quotes by Clemence Poesy
#26. In the '80s, I was the only one who didn't watch the shows about teenagers. I had to go over to friends' houses to see them. I still don't have a TV! #Quote by Clemence Poesy
80s Preppy quotes by Christian Slater
#27. The '80s was a wild decade, and I had some fantastic times. And I did some really fun work. #Quote by Christian Slater
80s Preppy quotes by Joan Rivers
#28. It's like, God, I'm in my 80s. Nobody, when I die, is going to say, 'How young?' They're going to say she had a great ride. #Quote by Joan Rivers
80s Preppy quotes by Barry Unsworth
#29. As I wrote I began to see more strongly that there were inescapable analogies. You couldn't really live through the '80s without feeling how crass and distasteful some of the economic doctrines were. The slave trade is a perfect model for that kind of total devotion to the profit motive without reckoning the human consequences. #Quote by Barry Unsworth
80s Preppy quotes by Brian Skerry
#30. I was the first journalist allowed on a hunting boat during harp seal season in almost 15 years. Around the late 1970s, white coat pups became the poster child for the anti-fur movement, and by the '80s, the media was lambasting the hunters for killing them. #Quote by Brian Skerry
80s Preppy quotes by Jennifer Egan
#31. She was clean: no piercings, tattoos, or scarifications. All the kids were now. And who could blame them, Alex thought, after watching three generations of flaccid tattoos droop like moth-eaten upholstery over poorly stuffed biceps and saggy asses? #Quote by Jennifer Egan
80s Preppy quotes by Edmund White
#32. When I was living in Paris in the '80s, I used to go out with an American model who couldn't speak French. But suddenly everyone could speak English because he was so cute. #Quote by Edmund White
80s Preppy quotes by Persis Khambatta
#33. I only went to one Star Trek convention and that was in the late '80s. I hadn't gone to a convention before that. It was quite amusing, with the people dressed up and all of that. #Quote by Persis Khambatta
80s Preppy quotes by Nick Harkaway
#34. In a lot of places, of course, the '80s had never really come to an end. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
80s Preppy quotes by Caroline Kepnes
#35. It's the little things that make you want to kill someone, the way Milo drinks Diet Dr Pepper and ties his Jewfro in a bun and lifts his shirt to show off his stomach and wipes his glasses down even though they're not dirty. Yes, Milo got glasses, and seafoam green Topsiders, and a navy blue Polo-style shirt with a popped collar, and didn't I already kill this guy when he was schilling Home Soda and fucking Guinevere Beck? #Quote by Caroline Kepnes
80s Preppy quotes by Freddie Prinze, Jr.
#36. The '80s were all about 'Saturday Night's Main Event.' #Quote by Freddie Prinze, Jr.

80s Preppy quotes by T.M. Frazier
#38. You cunts done yet?" Preppy called out with a sigh, letting his shoulders fall. "Ya'll fight like bitches. When one of you taps out I bet it's because you gotta go change your fucking tampon." He shook his head and rolled his eyes. #Quote by T.M. Frazier
80s Preppy quotes by Simon Cowell
#39. On one level, going bust didn't bother me. It was the 80s, and there wasn't the stigma about bankruptcy that you might think. My mates weren't bothered. My dad was in business.. he knew that it happened, too. He loaned me the money to bail me out, and I got a loan from the bank to pay him back. #Quote by Simon Cowell
80s Preppy quotes by Blair Underwood
#40. You never know how things will last, if they will last, and how people will use them in the future. It was a fun movie for young people at the time in the 80s; but it struck a cord with people and it has lasted so I'm very proud of being a part of that. #Quote by Blair Underwood
80s Preppy quotes by Martin Short
#41. [Ed Grimley] lives in a retirement home in New Jersey. It's called the Retirement Home in New Jersey for Characters Who Were Interesting in the '80s for About an Hour. He's there with the Whiners, Gumby and Jon Lovitz's 'That's the ticket' guy. #Quote by Martin Short
80s Preppy quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#42. America certainly has made extraordinary progress. The collective unconscious of the nation has certainly shifted as a result of the civil rights movement and the developments in the '70s and '80s. We have witnessed a great expansion of the black middle class. #Quote by Michael Eric Dyson
80s Preppy quotes by Al Yankovic
#43. In the '80s, I was putting out an album virtually every year, I think mostly based on fear - that if I didn't, people would soon forget about me. #Quote by Al Yankovic
80s Preppy quotes by Gary Kemp
#44. In the '80s the band was 24/7. You were only as good as what you were producing at any given moment. Now my family is more important. I also think having the shock of your mum and dad dying humbles you slightly. #Quote by Gary Kemp
80s Preppy quotes by Donna Karan
#45. Today, fashion is really about sensuality-how a woman feels on the inside. In the '80s women used suits with exaggerated shoulders and waists to make a strong impression. Women are now more comfortable with themselves and their bodies-they no longer feel the need to hide behind their clothes. #Quote by Donna Karan
80s Preppy quotes by Allison Anders
#46. I was a big fan of X. I've probably seen 100 X shows during their time in the late '70s and early '80s. #Quote by Allison Anders
80s Preppy quotes by Annie Lennox
#47. My first understanding of HIV and AIDS was like everybody else from my generation. In the mid-'80s, we heard about this, and it was terrifying, because we knew nothing about how to respond to it appropriately, and we didn't really understand about how the virus is passed. There was a lot of misconception about that. #Quote by Annie Lennox
80s Preppy quotes by Chris Hardwick
#48. Bowling really was a big American sport in the '50s, '60s, and '70s, and then it kind of died off in the '80s. #Quote by Chris Hardwick
