    I miss those orange push up pops. I used to steal those out of the ice cream bend in the lunch line at school.

    And I used to get down with my synthesizer.

    Playing pencils was probably the dumbest and most mindless thing i ever did...besides pegging my pants. Oh no, i did both of those at the same time, i'm a habitual 80's offender.

    Don't forget the vuarnet t-shirts and the tees that changed color when someone touched that area...the infamous "give 7th grade guys another reason to try and touch a girl's chest" shirt.

    How 80's is this: I used to have to lay on my bed with either a pair of plyers or a clothes hanger and my brother would squeeze my hips to zip up my skin tight jeans!

    1) Closely followed by Twisted Sisters -We're Not Gonna Take it

    2) The Movie "Better Off Dead" starring John Cusak and directed by "savage" Steve Holland.

    BTW....I can relate everything on that list including Romper Room, The Friendly Giant and Mr. Dressup.

    Yeah, i had a few of both brands. Thinking about it makes kind of scared to look up old childhood photos. The style of that time was absolutely Doodoo.
    kind of makes you wonder what we're going to think of what we wear now in about 15 years.

    What about that "Flock of Seagulls" look?? I know I wasn't the only one who shaved my head except for the long, top heavy bangs and bleached it "Billy Idol" white!!

    SKIN tight jeans, converse high tops (multi-coloured), long shirts that fell off one shoulder with a BIG wide belt rested on one hip! OMG does that ever sound tacky now!!!

    What's scary is the sneakers (running shoes) that we used to wear back then are now back in style!! Remember Adidas Stan Smiths and the canvas Nike's in all the pastel colors?? Young kids are paying close to $100.00 for them now! I read an article that said almost half of Adidas' profits from shoes are from the retro collection! (I think it was Adidas...maybe it was Nike. It doesn't really matter, you get the point!)

    I thought my commodore 64 was the top of the line shit back then!
    Who else watched different strokes religiously? musta been just me.

    I had a pair of converse high tops too, and yes they're making quite the comeback. In fact alot of retro style things are coming back now. Funny how it is.

    memories.. and for the canadians out there, remember the cigarette machines? the americans still have them i believe however.

    super mario 3 was $86 bucks canadian, now its only worth is personal.

    that pissed the hell out of me, when McDonalds stopped making the happy meal boxes.

    ninja turtle were at an all time high around the end of the 80's i believe

    what about snap braclets? those were cool. But i bet today they'd find a 1000 reasons to bands them. "warning : maybe used to slit peoples throats"

    the best was the shoes tho,, that and my neon laces
