Simple video games. I don't even play 'em or have a system anymore. There are too many buttons and too many tasks to accomplish.

The hair, the music, some of the clothing and my figure! I am not a fan of the gigantic shoulder pads or oversized blazers.

I was a teenager in the 90's, and hated it.
I was just properly old enough to appreciate life and it wasn't the "music" or movie's or culture of the 90's, all I loved was firmly rooted in the 80's.

I remember some guys in my school giving me tapes of Metallica, Anthrax and Carcass and loving it.
I loved the pop from the 80's too, and of course movies, television shows and culture and still do.

The Internet for me is a portal to that better time and finding so many gems I didn't know about.


A big thank you to all who have ever posted everywhere [Cool]

Scratch & Sniff stickers and an abundance of arcades.

I agree on the arcades. It was such a great atmosphere.

I know they are still around but nothing like in the 80s. I rarely Se them anymore. Guess jeans were amazing on girls.

Definitely agree about the arcades. I didn't spend a huge amount of time in them back in the '80's (no money to spend on playing video games - LOL) but do remember the vibe they had.

I don't know if arcades are around much anymore; everyone these days can play the video games @ home, so there doesn't seem to be much point to spending $ at arcades.

I"ll third on the arcades. I was an avid arcade junkie and spent nearly every penny (quarter) I earned in them as a youngster. So if ever a retro arcade had a grand opening near me, I guarantee I'll be one of the first in line to get in with a pocket-full of change.

So many things...
  • Music charts that actually had any bearing on the music people listened to
  • Respect for people - the lack of respect in society today appals me.
  • Movies - of course. Specifically movies that had strong characters and plots, and not just lots of explosions and guns.
  • VCRs. Strangely, I miss the days when things weren't so 'on demand' and you had to plan or prepare for things you were likely to miss.
  • The actresses I had major crushes on, that now look like a slightly deflated Goodyear Blimp. That's not meant as a sexist comment, simply that thirty-five years can really change a person's looks...
