Shorter work hours, coupled with higher wages and a larger part of the population working in cities paved the way for the beginning of a proper entertainment industry, which itself heralded the birth of what we call "pop culture": While in [[WorldWarI the decade before]] the first "true" celebrities came around (Houdini and Chaplin), the term would become popular as many personalities would become worshiped by their followers.

** In this decade, [[WeimarGermany Berlin]] became a cultural mecca for any budding artist whose streets and [[GratuitousGerman Kaffeehäuser]] are filled to the brim with intellectuals and writers writing off their Lost Generation woes, films filled with [[GermanExpressionism expressionist motifs]], and art filled with abstract and deconstructive tones.

Style is almost exclusively ArtDeco ''moderne'', all minimalist lines and coolly fluid shapes. (Side point- Art Deco's fascination with streamlining household objects whose actual wind resistance is irrelevant proved popular because leveling incomes led for the first time to a group of people who could afford good design without having to afford household servants as well. It seems that a streamlined Art Deco lamp is easier to ''dust'' than a frilly Victorian one...) There were plenty of additional opportunities for employing that style in the many new consumer appliances that came on the market. Electric refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, fans, toasters, phonographs, radios and other gadgets were sold by the millions, with installment plans allowing more people than ever to buy them. And automobiles stopped being referred to as "horseless carriages" mainly used for Sunday rides and became a wanted everyday commodity, ´pretty much helped by its wartime use, the same for "flying machines" and "air balloons" (unfortunately, one of the two would have a tragic end in mainstream terms in the late 30s).

[[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfHollywood Silent films]] became an art medium of their own with classic films like ''Film/TheWind'' and ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' setting new heights for screen drama and the great silent comedians like Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/HaroldLloyd and Creator/BusterKeaton gaining enormous popularity. The fact that they didn't have sound meant that movies still hadn't killed off {{Vaudeville}} or MinstrelShows just yet, but the advent of talkies late in the decade finished the job, however. Radio progressed quickly through the last of its experimental phases and was firmly established as a mass-market medium by the end of the decade (including radios in cars, brought to you by some lowly company called Motorola), also establishing what is now known as "popular music" in the process. Sports became items of true passion with star slugger Babe Ruth, portentous pugilist Jack Dempsey, pigskin powerhouse Red Grange, golfing great Bobby Jones and others became heroes for the common man. Basketball, golf, pool and hockey also gained popularity, and bowling became a popular informal sport decades before becoming a [[BowlingForRatings sitcom staple]].
