You Know You're A Child Of The 80's If...
« on: April 13, 2005, 02:50:06 pm »
found a whole bunch of these on the net......

here's 10 of my favorites.........

1. War Games had you wondering if you could really start Armageddon using your crummy TRS-80.

2. You watched The Tracey Ullman Show for the funny cartoon segments about the yellow people.

3. You consider Ocean Pacific a designer label.

4. You Believed that "By the power of Greyskull, you HAD the power!"

5. You know whose phone number is 867-5309.

6. Your first Walkman weighed 10 pounds and was the size of a brick.

7. You stuck around after the commercial break to see if the General Lee on The Dukes of Hazzard really made it over that dried-out gulch when the bridge was down.

8. You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female smurf.

9. You could break-dance, or wish you could.

10. You remember when ATARI was a state of the art video game system.



now add to the list.............

106. You'd stay up late to watch The Hitchhiker on HBO, because of the dirty bits.

107. You wondered who those old guys were in the Run-D.M.C. "Walk This Way" video.

108. You thought Clint Eastwood would one day be president.

109. You were 99.9% sure Sue Ellen shot J.R.

110. If you remember when you heard that drinking soda and eating Pop Rocks would make your stomach asplode

This song is on Club 977 internet radio right now. I guess another sign that you're a child of the '80 might be that you listen to Club 977 at work. :)

111. You know what "Psych" means.

112. Once, while spending hours in the arcade, you actually lined up quarters
on the top panel of the game -- to "reserve" your spot.

113. You had no problems thinking members of the Miami police department drove Lamborghinis.

If you have iTunes installed, it's under 70s/80s pop in the radio section. I'm sure you can listen with other software, but that's what I use. Heard Pac-Man Fever about an hour ago. ;D

(in my best Sloth voice) indicates it as Goonies... but that was clearly taken from the intro to the show "The Electric Company" from PBS (which ironically featured Morgan Freeman and Rita Moreno, who did the opening phrase).....

Classic PBS TV... gotta love it

124. Partying ''like it's 1999'' seemed SO far away.

125. you had super hero underoos.

126. when somone mentions two consecutive days of the week, the Happy Days theme is stuck in your head for hours on end.

127. you ever watched Fraggle Rock

128. you thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye

129. after you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you couldn't stop saying "I know you are but what am I?"...

130. you hatch plots to break Murdock out of VA hospital

131.  You thought Ferris Bueller had a really good singing voice on that "Twist and Shout" song.

132.  A 5 MB hard disk drive was bigger than you could ever hope to fill.

133.  You remember floppy disks that were actually floppy.

134.  You still can't quite get used to that new guy singing for Van Halen.

There were a couple.  "Touch Me" was the most popular one, followed by "I wanna have some fun".

Do not ask me how I remember that.

141.  You see a man trying to show off as macho tough walking around with diamond stud earrings in BOTH ears and think to yourself:

"Buddy, you are making the wrong statement about "swimming to both shores" with that look!"

I was watching the new "Kojak" last night.  Ving Rhames had an earring in his right ear only.  As a child of the 80's...I was confused.

When did earrings lose their meaning?

Apparantly not. I work in a high school and I see boys with either one ear pierced (doesn't seem to matter which one) or more commonly with both ears pierced.

No.
Yes.  I'd post a link to the porn star database, but it wouldn't be appropriate for this forum, so I'll quote from the first paragraph instead:

"One of the all-time porn greats, Porn Star Samantha Fox should not be confused with the vapid mid-80's pop singer of the same name. No, this Samantha Fox was a beautiful brunette sex kitten who starred in over 100 features between 1978 and 1984, establishing herself as one of the top stars in the industry."

The singer, though, did do topless "page three"-type shots, though.  Samantha Fox the singer was British, Samantha Fox the porn star was from New York.

Both Samantha Foxes have IMDB entries:

Samantha Fox the Porn Star
Samantha Fox the Singer

The research for this message was undertaken for the good of the community.  :)


Sorry dude you are wrong.

There may be a porn star with the same name, but the page girl three from the 80's also most definitely sang the previously mentioned songs.

I will wage my left testicle on this.

Yes.

Technically, we're both correct.  I knew of the pr0n star, but since we were talking about the 'singer' and the b00bie picture poster, they were one and the same.  The pr0n star was practically 40 when these songs were popular.

This is for the Canadians on watching this thread...

On Saturday, me and the boys went out to a local pub for some drinks.  And the live band that was playing that night was called "Thread"  and the lead singer of this band was Gord Deppe.. the lead singer of the Canadian 80s band called The Spoons.  Not sure if The Spoons where popular in the US, but in Canada they were pretty big in the 80s.

Anyways, this 3 piece band ROCKED with a good mix of new and old 80s classics.  They even played a rock versions of the classic Spoons songs... Nova Hearts, Romantic Traffic and Old Emotions.

Hey, interesting tidbit here.  That guy's name is Mark Metcalfe.  Animal House famous.  His daughter owns a restaurant (EXCELLENT food, btw....Libby Montana's is the name) and he lives in my area.  He does a DVD review and various pop-ins with the local yokel DJ team (www.lazer103.com), Bob & Brian.

Shape D, you should be able to catch them in the Madison area, can't remember the station...perhaps 100.5?  I know the station is 100 X, so whatever the actual number is, you can figger it out.  Mornings until 10. 

I think you guys should all pool your resources and help me get the answers to the "You (still) Can't Win" daily trivia show.  I'll split all the CD's in the CD Jackpot, someone can have the Palm Pilot, and whatever else they're giving away for winning, I'll split it out.  There's no cash, just prizes.

I remember that song.. It was by the B-Sharps (B#)

B-Sharps: Baby on board, how I've adored,
That sign on my car's windowpane
A bounce in my step; loaded with pep,
'Cause I'm driving in the carpool lane.

Call me a square; friend, I don't care
That little yellow sign can't be ignored
I'm telling you it's mighty nice
Each trip's a trip to paradise
With my baby on board.

177. You spent an inordinate amount of time "feathering" your hair.

178. You carried your cell phone in a bag and had to plug it into your cigarette lighter before you could use it.

179. You remember bringing toast and an umbrella to The Rocky Horror Picture Show (do they still do this?).

180.  Your roller skates had four wheels and two axles.

181. You still laugh out loud whenever someone says the quote, "Hey, that kangaroo just stole my ball!"

182. You wore bell bottoms the *first* time they were hip.

Commenting on various things from earlier.

Molly Ringwold was cute, not hot, there is a distinct difference between the two of them. Cute is more innocent and less sexual than hot.  :police: I had a big crush on Molly Ringwold and still do (Kerry Green too, anyone remember her, very short career).

I STILL own a pair of underwear that are red and blue (superman color scheme), they have been in the regular rotation for like 10 years now. Although I have like 50 pairs of underwear, so they literally just seem to last forever. They are actually my lucky underwear, so I only wear them on special occasions.  ;D

Every Friday night @ midnight....other theaters, select times only, and those losers frown on bringing "enhancements" to the show.....honest to Pete, that's the exact wording I read!

Although I have like 50 pairs of underwear, so they literally just seem to last forever. They are actually my lucky underwear, so I only wear them on special occasions.  ;D


OK, first of all, I will NEVER be able to stop wondering if you were wearing your red/blue underwear when you made the trip up here, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT MENTAL IMAGE!  Secondly, no one EVER needed to know ANYTHING about your underwear collection.  Thirdly, c'mon, you CAN'T have "lucky" underwear.  There are "gettin' lucky" underwear, the "wink wink nudge nudge" kind, and you've gotta have those stashed away for your wedding day, right.....that's rhetorical, WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT ANSWER THAT QUESTION! ;D  Fourth, and lastly, as Santoro said, too much information.

All who could have went to their grave not knowing one single thing about Paigeoliver's underwear raise their hand.

184. you know this theme song........

Love and marriage,
Love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
This, I tell you, brother,
You can't have one without the other.
Love and marriage,
Love and marriage,
It's an institute you can't disparage.
Ask the local gentry,
And they will say it's elementary.
Try, try,
Try to seperate them.
It's an illusion.
Try, try,
Try and you will only come to this conclusion.
Love and marriage,
Love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
This was told by mother.
You can't have one,
You can't have none,
You can't have one without the other.

183 - You remember Jeff Goldblum and Ben Vereen as TV dectectives

I thought Tenspeed and Brown Shoe was from the 70's, but I looked it up and it was from 1980.

Do people count the 80s from 1981-1990 or from 1980-1989? I've seen it both ways. Personally I prefer the latter. That makes the first century only have 99 years, but they didn't put in a year zero, so it's not our problem.


I have changed my nickname to "Cakemeister". Please do not PM the Buddabing account because I do not check it anymore.

Please read the wiki!

I have absolutely no recollection of Tenspeed and Brown Shoe (then again, it was the 80's and I was a teenager...). I'm not sure it played up here in Canada. Do any other Canadian remember this show? The first I saw Goldbloom was in "The Fly". Great movie BTW. My favourite saying was "Brundel Fly". We use that term at work sometimes... :D

Oh man, I totally forgot about those things! My little sister had one that she was really attached to. Being the cruel big brother that I was, I used to kidnap it at every opportunity. At one point i tied it to a rope and tossed it out the back of the ski boat. "Look he's skiing!"

Ever heard of TiVo?  You can still see it all and be in bed by eight.  :)

I tape Conan, Jay, and Dave with my Dual-tuner DVR. Then I FF through looking for the bits I like, skipping the boring interviews. All in the evening.

When you bought two Tiffany cassettes from a clearance bin at the mall, put plastic tape over the write tabs, recorded 2 Live Crew and NWA onto them, and then removed the plastic tape.

My mother thought I was a huge, huge Tiffany fan.  I don't know if I could name two of her songs.

...too bad the new singer is so terrible, I cannot listen to Velvet Revolver.  The lyrics are nonsensical, you can't understand him anyway, and his voice is burned out and crappy.  It's like they recorded him yelling gibberish alone, and then just mixed it with the instrument tracks later.

I saw them once.  I won some front row seats from a radio station to their tour with Faith No More and Metallica.  I couldn't hear for about two months afterwards.

Axl sounded like crap in person.

I saw that tour. It was in Texas Stadium (where the Dallas Cowboys play) when I saw them. Axl actually did pretty well at that one. It was James Hefield who tanked the night I saw them.

He was on almost every TV show at one point or another.  That guy got more chances than anyone you can think of to be a star and it took him like 40.  He was always on things like The Facts of Life, Hunter, The Golden Girls, etc.
