I just gave 5 stars too April Fool! Nice to see you back. I think we need a rewind recruitment! I love coming on here chatting about the 80's...it is always a nice little escape. I live an otherwise pretty normal life (busy being a husband and father) but none of my friends share my fascination with the decade. My wife loves the 80's too and will watch lots of movies with me (threw me an awesome 80's party for my 40th birthday a couple years back...and bless her heart, is supportive of my 80's room) but not a giant fan like me! Here's to a new hey day!!

Ha I just realised that my predictive text changed Duckie to D1ckie. Oops. It's really nice to see some of the old and new rewinders. I'm going to visit Duckie Dale Winton this week. I'll pass on your appreciation Warrior. X

Kev - I like the idea of a recruitment day! We should have a day where we all try to reach out to a few people who were on here a lot in the past and see if we can get them back on board!

Good to see you're back Gordongecko! I think most of the people I know on Facebook do check in once in awhile. However Ronnie (Nowhere Girl) doesn't want to rejoin the Rewind or Facebook. She likes Instagram, and she is still watching plenty of 80's flicks, especially 80's horror.

Cheers gord...would love to see this as well. Though, if the others aren't coming back, I think maybe a challenge to the current Rewinders to start at least one post each...start getting some more dialogue going. Also think we need to revisit some of the old questions that have already been asked in years passed...some of the simple ones like...name your top 10 favorite 80's movies, songs, etc. This was a staple back in the day and you could search and find some old answers...but I'd like to know some of this stuff from the newer Rewinders. I'll post my question soon....need to get some shut eye for now. What say everyone?

Thanks guys! I've been around, just haven't had a post for awhile. I agree, it's good to get some old topics going again. Plus, things change, like my top 10's!

Ronnie posting 80's stuff on Instagram?

Yes Gordongecko, she posts whatever 80's movie (usually horror) she is watching that day.
I'll try and think on some new topics to lighten things up in here😎

That's awesome! What's her username? I'll have to check it out. I don't really use my Facebook account much, but do enjoy instagram.

Nice work on the new topics. I look forward to it.

Bummer Ronnie doesn't come on here anymore. Was starting to become real good friends with her before the boards started getting attacked.

I'm on and off facebook still. Started an 80's/90's nostalgia group of our own with a couple friends awhile back on there too so there's that. Even still have my Vampirefreaks social page active (linked in my profile). Don't really use anything else other than those and this as far as social media goes.

I think I tried checking in here some years ago but something was the matter. I couldn't register or something along those lines.

Anyhow, it is nice to see a "retro/80s" content site that ISN'T dead! I had thought mine was the only one!

Come to find out there are still a few out there surviving still, with devoted members.

I just joined this site last Fall, and am enjoying my time here. However, it would have been interesting to have been on the site earlier, when '80's nostalgia was extremely strong. I remember the 200X's as being the decade for '80's nostalgia - it was everywhere - in movies, consumer products like the return of "Tab" and "Garbage Pail Kids" stickers, etc. Also, a lot of previously-tough-to-find '80's films were being released to DVD for the first time ever.

Now that we're in the second decade of the 21st century, '80's nostalgia is definitely still around - but maybe not as much as before. However, we do still see '80's nostalgia movies like "Ping Pong Summer", re-makes of '80's movies like "Poltergeist", etc. in the last couple of years. And, on TV, you have "Stranger Things" and "The Americans" - both great 21st century shows that take place during the '80's. And, a couple of years ago there were some interesting "Garbage Pail Kids" figures, the re-make of the "Thundercats" cartoon, etc.

What's interesting is that in the beginning of this decade, I always though '90's nostalgia would be all over the place, given that it usually takes 20 years after a given decade for people to be nostalgic about that era (i.e., people were nostalgic about the '60's in the '80's, in the '90's you saw a lot of '70's nostalgia, etc.). However, we're now at the tail end of the 20XX's, and I have seen very little -if any - '90's nostalgia....I've actually seen more '80's nostalgia than anything else - go figure.

Compared to previous decades, like the 80s, the 70s, or the 60s, the 90s were pretty non descript. I doubt that there will ever be much nostalgia for the 00s.
