plasticage.net is my site, that has existed since 2002. When I made the offer to moira to set up the forum, it was done on my existing web space. It still is, actually, silverscreenoasis.com is a "parked" domain, as is jonparker.com -- they all point to the same site.
I chose the name Plastic Age because my original plan was to do a site devoted to 20th century American culture, and in many ways that sums up the period for me. Plastic as a material was responsible for many of the innovations and advances that we saw during that 100 years. It's also the name of a Clara Bow silent that's a fun, if a bit cheesy film, and I'm a huge fan of Ms. Bow. In any event, while I worked on it some, it never became what I wanted it to be. Real life intervened.
Truth be told, I *hate* the new name, but the majority has spoken.
