I'm thinking back to the early and mid-1970s now (born in 1968), but I miss the idea of America being 'exotic'. I miss the idea that American food, clothes and culture generally were somehow foreign and faraway. Things seem genuinely glamorous and interesting because of the novelty of them. This weird, bright, colour-saturated culture that was so far removed from my Northern English town.
No offence America, but now I resent you being part of my daily life. I loathe the influence you've had on the rest of the world over the last couple of decades.
