well not quite a baby in the 80's but it's when I was a kid and growing up... only thing I got out of being born in the 70's was a pic of me wearing brown and yellow plaid... hello?!? WTF... even in the late 70's that had to be tacky... wait, my gran had the funky orange shag, and a moss green couch set....maybe it was in style Shocked

anyhow in searching for strange things, like the canned sandwich, I stumbled onto an 80's page and it got me remembering all the really cool stuff I played with back then










so what do you remember?

The Lockerbie air disaster was the first time I really felt true fear. It happened at a time when my mother and brother were flying and we didn't hear details for hours, we were so scared it was them. Then of course we got the guilt for feeling happy it was a different plane. You can't win really can you? Apart from that, the 80's were a blast for me, big hair, shoulder pads and everything Smile

Crimped hair! I still have my first crimp iron! WOOT!


Also, I remember watching Live Aid with my aunt on TV. It was amazing.

British Knights tennis shoes! I saved up my allowance and bought a pair, although I could only afford the plain white ones. The ones I really wanted were the black lace pair seen at second 16 in this commercial:



(even though the commercial says 1990, I am pretty sure I was sporting the shoes in the late 80's)

Hawwwttt!!!

Swatch Watches!!

Cabbage Patch craze.

Tapes! My first tape was Madonna True Blue that I bought with birthday money to play in my brand NEW Boom Box!! I was SOO excited.

Does anyone remember Hypercolor Tee-shirts? I had one. It was pretty fantastic.

The video at that link reminded me of THE hottest dance move: The Running Man!

Last but not least, BIG bangs! The bigger, the better.
Note: this is not me. I will not permit photos of me from the 80's to see the light of day. Plus, I was just a kid then.


Doesn't it make you cringe when you see the 80's fashions coming back in style?? Why???

The Asian girl in the Toys R Us commercial, I've seen her on a few TV shows since, all grown up.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0697010/

I do not miss shoulder pads.

They forgot my Glamour Gals!

Not only did I have the collector's case, but I had the cruise ship too.

And Lady Lovely Locks!



And Gloworm!

I remember my crimping iron, it was pink and had 4 different plates with it... also got a pink phone for my 12th birthday I felt so cool.

Of course a nintendo when I was in grade 8, and like 15 games... one of them being Zelda.... my favorite game ever, that I never ever finished. But having 15 games for a nintendo did make me a pretty popular girl lol

Nightmare on Elm Street.... omg I loved that series, I remember watching I think it was #4 like 6 times in a row at a slumber party... a slumber party that included me (and yes Jill this is when it all started) dancing on my best friends coffee table, all decked out in a horrid makeover that included HUGE HUGE hair, and gawd awful electric blue eyeshadow, to samantha fox's touch me

They video taped it...thankfully someone accidentally taped over it as my best friends mom saved it for 8 years... hoping to play it at my wedding

I used to go to the arcade and play games lke Street Fighter, Pacman and The Simpsons. But I remember my first personal game was Tetris for original Gameboy. And someone at school stole it. So as soon as I started using the net, I had a Tetris playing obsession. Laughing

My Little Ponies? That might have been very early 80's. I remember getting Michael Jackson and Laura Brannigan tapes with my very first boom box. And when I was old enough (in my mind, not my mom's Wink ) to wear makeup I remember getting blue mascara and Wet 'n Wild eyeshadows at the drugstore.

I miss the Smurfs cartoons on Saturday mornings. I was 9 when the 80s started and reveled in the lace fringed gloves, aerobics high tops (sans aerobics classes), friendship bead pins on my shoelaces, fat shoelaces, the original Degrassi St tv show (and I even lived near Degrassi St where the show was filmed), watching Michael Jackson moonwalk on tv, I didn't like the crazy looking squished in faces of the Cabbage Patch kids but remember the craziness in Zellers' toy department, I wore leg warmers and entertained the notion of being an exotic dancer/welder but realized I can't dance, preferred Knight Rider over the A-Team, watched Footloose in the movie theatre (we skipped Easter mass to watch Kevin Bacon shake his money maker), played with my Frogger video game on a tiny version of the arcade game but really I wanted Atari, Simon was a favourite too, and my first computer was a Vic20.

Yes, I am ancient.

I woke up early a few Saturdays ago and was horribly disappointed with the morning cartoons. No Smurfs! No Johnny Quest! No Scooby! No Fat Albert! No Popeye! Nope. None. All the cartoons on offer encouraged sharing, caring, and being kind to one another. Phooey. It must suck donkey balls to be a kid on Saturday morining.

I forgot to mention the heyday of Days of Our Lives:

Bo and Hope
Marlena and her different Romans
Shane and Kimberly
Kayla and Patch


On the other hand, the other day I was home at 1pm and switched on the tube. I flipped thru the 5 channels I have (no cable) and I couldn't believe when I found DOOL and there was not only Bo but Hope and Shane and Kim. A little weary looking, obviously lots of hair colouring. But still there --- like they never left! Whoah. A tv museum. Gnarly. As well I heard that Marlena kicked the bucket (again). I guess we'll have to wait until the real life actress divorces/has more babies/or babies need college for her character to mysterious appear in a dark wig on a Mediterranean island with an extinct yet suddenly active volcano. Sweet.

OOOO my god, Ziona! I watched Days of Our Lives with my mom during the summer of 1987!! Those characters! Ahhh! that is hilarious! Don't forget Frankie & Carrie and also, Jack Devereaux---one of the guys who played him is still on TV, had a bit part on Fringe last year. Cracked me up.

Also, totally with you on the cartoons. I may sound old for saying this, but they were SO much better back in our day!

I'm also a late 70s baby, but grew up in the 80s. Loved Duran Duran and (ashamedly) the Care Bears, but this was my all time fave cartoon:

Man you guys make me feel old, oh wait I am old, but I still remember going thru puberty with girls wearing those early 70's miniskirts and watching marsha and jan brady getting older and their skirts getting shorter.......That was definately a time period to be a voyuer.

I mean look at these skirts

I can't believe I forgot all the drama around Jack Devereaux and Melissa! I remember that loft everyone on DOOL eventually resided -- probably still are. I saw on jezebel.com that the show was renewed for a few more years because they rake in the dough doing lots of product placement like cheerios or granola bars. If over the top romantic escapades with a soup├žon of improbable intrigue (hopefully some shirtless ones) don't reel in the viewers, then at least pay for the whole shebang with commercials within the plotlines.

Still think Bo is hawt cheers

I watched another world with my gran... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better then DOOL

and Degrasi <3 omg I loved that show... yes I had a huge crush on Joey

I loved revenge of the nerds Drax... have to say I still do, but Porky's will always have a special place in my heart for one of those movies that was too "old" for me to be watching back then

I think its awesome that they have teletoon reto now, that is usually what my kiddos are watching. Of course my son thinks it's pretty cool that his mom knows the spiderman theme song (I'm sure some day that will turn into you're THAT old!, but for now I'm cool) and hearing "autobots transform" still makes me wonder what evil they are defeating .

I have gotten Keenie hooked on jelly bracelets and leg warmers...and the darn kid can pull off those skinny jeans so she looks pretty cool ... can't convince her that suspenders have ever been or are cool, but I have hope for her.

and all 3 love the 80's music on their wii dance party thing.... I nearly peed my pants watching them all walk like an egyptian at her bday party

I was a sixties kid. For me the eighties were about being politically active. Riots and marches, and Thatcher OUT OUT OUT.

I stopped watching TV, and didn't bother with the charts much after about 84.

Started to write left-wing agit prop theatre plays, and smoked a shedload of hash.

Billy Bragg, the Smiths, everything mattered.

Hating Yuppies, wearing para boots and military surplus gear, with the obligatory Yasser Arafat scarf. Hating AHA, and Bros, and WHAM, and all that anodyne bullshit.

Hating the Royal Weddings. Loving the cricket, the football, the endless stream of short-term girlfriends. I listened to the WALL about a million times.

We fought a war against the establishment, and we lost. The world hasn't been the same since.

Now we have 24 hour kids tv, and its Saturday morning all the time.

Sex Pistols were right. No future.

for me, my politics started in the 90's, protest marches and cries of "Free Mandela". We fought the establishment and we won, and the world will never be the same Wink

The eighties were my childhood so it was all about school, clothes and teenage angst. The wall was our anthem and Robert Smith had pride of place above my bed, next to Bowie and Morten Haarket.

Leg warmers were cool, whether I was dancing or not and I rode my BMX everywhere I could (And a few places I shouldn't have Wink) I lived out in the middle of nowhere, so everything was free and wild. I could go out in the morning and come back at night without bumping into another human Smile Happy days Very Happy
