We’re stuck on the racing, nauseating, never-ending roller coaster called 2022… and the Buzzstaff is sick of it. So, instead of facing our problems head on, we are reverting to, I mean finding home, in the warmth of nostalgia. Call us incapable of dealing with the current state of the world, but we’ve been finding comfort in coloring books, vibrant Play-Doh, cartoons, favorite characters, and memories. And honestly? I’m not mad about it. We’re discovering that we might not hate going on play dates with our inner child, burying ourselves in the media that shaped our childhood, and revisiting the things that make us say “Oh! I forgot about that!” In this issue, we tackle questions of if nostalgia is a dangerous mind trick, or if it’s an innocent and fun time capsule that reminds us of simpler times.
