a companion to the 80's thread which has caused Queenfluff and myself to feel really old....

-----------------------



All skaters, change directions" means something to you.



"Members Only" jackets...say no more.



A predominant color in your childhood photos is "plaid".



Chevy Chase was really funny in those vacation movies.



If female: you thought that Shawn Cassidy was "dreamy", lusted after "Ted, your ship's photographer" on the Love Boat or Chachi.



If male: your first love was Marsha Brady, Jeannine, Samantha from Bewitched, Josie or any one of the Pussycat.



In your sophomore class picture, you're wearing a shirt with the collar "up".



It was a major accomplishment to get to the "Chase" scene in Ms. Pacman.



Leg warmers were cool.



Most of the fillings in your mouth are directly related to Bazooka or Bubble Yum.



Rotary phones.



Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you learned things like grammar, math and history. (A big hint here is if the only way you can recite the Preamble to the Constitution is by singing it.)



The Brady Bunch Movie brings back warm memories.



You can remember the words to the theme song of "The Greatest American Hero." ("BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I'M WALKIN' ON AIR... I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD FEEL SO FREE-EE-EE...")



There was nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.



This rings a bell: "and my name, is Charlie. They work for me."



This rings a bell: "My name is Charlie, and they work for me."!



You actually believed that Mikey, famed kid on the Life cereal commercials, died after eating Pop Rocks and drinking a Coke.



You actually remember Benetton.



You actually remember Mr. Bill.



You ever asked to be gagged with a spoon.



You ever had a Dorothy Hamill haircut or used Short and Sassy shampoo.



You ever owned a Donnie and Marie or Sonny and Cher poster.



You ever owned a set of "Pop-Wheels", that handy little combination of shoe and roller skate that lasted about a year on the open market.



You ever wanted to learn to play "Stairway to Heaven" on the guitar and choreographed "Dancing Queen" by yourself in your room.



You found nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.



You know all the words to the double-album set of the "Grease" soundtrack.



You know who shot J.R.



You know, by heart, the words to Weird Al Yankovic's songs.



You learned to swim at about the same time "Jaws" came out... and still carry the emotional scars to prove it.



You owned a Jordache anything, or you remember when Jordache jeans were cool.



You recall when Love's Baby Soft was in every girl's Christmas stocking.



You remember "Friday Night Videos" before the days of MTV.



You remember Bo and Luke Duke, Daisy, Boss Hogg, or, worst of all - what Sheriff Roscoe's full name was. (Coltrain)



You remember having a rotary phone.



You remember having to get off the couch to change the TV channel.



You remember that music that was labeled "alternative" really was.



You remember the days when "safe sex" meant "my parents are going out of town".



You remember trying to guess the first episode of the Brady Bunch from the first scene.



You remember wanting to stay up to see Mr. Bill on Saturday Night Live.



You remember when film critics were certain that no movie could ever possibly get better special effects than those in the movie TRON.



You remember when there was only "G", "PG", and "R".



You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch and your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD!



You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van and remember riding in the back of the station wagon trying to get passing trucks to honk at you.



You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk.



You were not allowed to see The Exorcist, The Omen, or The Blue Lagoon when they came out.



You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on.



Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape.



Your jaw would ache by the time you finished one of those brick-sized packages of Bazooka!



Your parents paid $2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table.



Your parents wanted you to attend medical school, but you decided it was pointless since Quincy got all the babes anyway.



You're currently employed doing something that has absolutely nothing to do with your college major.



You're starting to believe that having the kids go to school all year wouldn't be such a bad idea after all.



You've ever owned a pair of rainbow suspenders like the ones Mork used to wear.



You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phrases: "You know, back when...," "When I was your age...," or "When I was younger..."

Rotary phones.



Rotary phones were pretty much dead by mid decade. Especially since a book came out in the late 1960's or early 70's instructing readers on how to play songs using the new touch tone phone!



The Brady Bunch Movie brings back warm memories.



Not hardly.



There was nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.



-sigh-



You actually remember Mr. Bill.



I thought those Mr. Bill shorts were pretty dumb.



You ever had a Dorothy Hamill haircut or used Short and Sassy shampoo.



I didn't have a Dorothy Hamill haircut, but I had a Farrah Fawcett "flip" hairdo. Unfortunately, one strong gust of wind, and it got ruined!



You know who shot J.R.



I refused to watch Dallas, but with all the media coverage surrounding Who Shot J.R., it was hard to avoid it anyway.



You owned a Jordache anything, or you remember when Jordache jeans were cool.



I didn't have Jordache jeans, but I wore Cheryl Tiegs pants.



You remember Bo and Luke Duke, Daisy, Boss Hogg, or, worst of all - what Sheriff Roscoe's full name was. (Coltrain)







You remember having a rotary phone.



Of course I do, cuz I was born in 1959.



You remember having to get off the couch to change the TV channel.







You remember that music that was labeled "alternative" really was.







You remember the days when "safe sex" meant "my parents are going out of town".







You remember wanting to stay up to see Mr. Bill on Saturday Night Live.



See above. Not Mr. Bill. But everything else on Saturday Night Live. Even though I was a teenager, my parents still wouldn't let me stay up til 1 a.m.



You remember when your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD!



My brother recorded all of "Cosmos" with the VCR remote connected by a cord!



You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van and remember riding in the back of the station wagon trying to get passing trucks to honk at you.



Oh dear god yes!



You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk.



All four. Not to mention The Man from Atlantis, starring Patrick Duffy before he became Bobby Ewing on Dallas. Remember Victor Buono as the villain in TMFA?



You've ever owned a pair of rainbow suspenders like the ones Mork used to wear.



No, but I had a rainbow belt that I wore with those Cheryl Tiegs pants. I might still have it!



You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phrases: "You know, back when...," "When I was your age...," or "When I was younger..."

"Members Only" jackets...say no more. I had an imitation Members Only jacket. How sad is that? I think that was the early 80's though.





Chevy Chase was really funny in those vacation movies. These were also 80's, no?



If female: you thought that Shawn Cassidy was "dreamy", lusted after "Ted, your ship's photographer" on the Love Boat or Chachi. I was actually in love with Barry Manilow. Again, pretty sad...



In your sophomore class picture, you're wearing a shirt with the collar "up". This was also an 80's thing.



It was a major accomplishment to get to the "Chase" scene in Ms. Pacman. 80's



Leg warmers were cool. 80's



Rotary phones. My parents had them until about 1990!



Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you learned things like grammar, math and history. (A big hint here is if the only way you can recite the Preamble to the Constitution is by singing it.) Conjunction junction, what's your function!



The Brady Bunch Movie brings back warm memories. Never seen it, but I did watch the Brady Bunch a lot.



You can remember the words to the theme song of "The Greatest American Hero." ("BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I'M WALKIN' ON AIR... I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD FEEL SO FREE-EE-EE...") We actually sang it in middle school chorus!



There was nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together. They're best friends!



You actually believed that Mikey, famed kid on the Life cereal commercials, died after eating Pop Rocks and drinking a Coke. I thought that was true for a long time until I saw a picture of him somewhere.



You actually remember Benetton. Definitely 80's.



You actually remember Mr. Bill. I do, but I never really got it.



You ever asked to be gagged with a spoon. 80's



You ever had a Dorothy Hamill haircut or used Short and Sassy shampoo. I had the Dorothy Hamill hairdut in 4th grade, but it really just looked like a bowl cut. Do you remember Body on Tap shampoo?



You ever owned a Donnie and Marie or Sonny and Cher poster. No, but I did have a Donnie and Marie microphone that you could sing into and it would come out of the radio.



You know all the words to the double-album set of the "Grease" soundtrack. Yes.



You know who shot J.R. I never watched Dallas, but I do remember being at summer camp and everyone talking about it.



You know, by heart, the words to Weird Al Yankovic's songs. 80's



You learned to swim at about the same time "Jaws" came out... and still carry the emotional scars to prove it. I was too chicken to go see it when it came out.



You owned a Jordache anything, or you remember when Jordache jeans were cool. Even at the time I hated them. I was always a bit anti-cool though.



You remember "Friday Night Videos" before the days of MTV. Oh, yeah, forgot about that one! I think that was early 80's though.



You remember Bo and Luke Duke, Daisy, Boss Hogg, or, worst of all - what Sheriff Roscoe's full name was. (Coltrain) I'm embarrassed to say I watched the Dukes of Hazzard religiously.



You remember that music that was labeled "alternative" really was. I don't think that term was used until the 80's. Late 80's even.



You remember when there was only "G", "PG", and "R". And X!



You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch and your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD! There was cable in the 70's?



You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk. Loved them all, especially the Hulk. That show always ended on a sweet melancholy note as David Banner had to leave town...



You were not allowed to see The Exorcist, The Omen, or The Blue Lagoon when they came out. Yup. Didn't see any until much later. I don't think I ever saw Blue Lagoon in its entirety.



Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape. Nope. Vinyl.



Your parents paid $2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table. We didn't get ours until about 1985.



You've ever owned a pair of rainbow suspenders like the ones Mork used to wear. Not only did I own a pair, but all my friends did too, and we would arrange the night before to all wear them to school on the same day.



You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phrases: "You know, back when...," "When I was your age...," or "When I was younger..." More and more every day...

Oh gee, thanks Randy. Some of these were when I was already a teenager! I feel ancient.



I'm humming "Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air...la-la-la-la..." and my kids are REALLY looking at me weird - I'm sure they'll thank you for their mother's musical reawakening...



Oh, and my best friend (a guy) was the one who lusted after Shaun Cassidy... and I couldn't understand why my mother was so horrified when I told her.

I never thought I could feel so FREE-EE-EEE!!!



That was one of my favorite shows as a kid. And Mork & Mindy.



Randy, I like your list better. It's weird, just a week or two ago I was talking to someone (remi? can't remember) about those remotes with cords. heh.



My aunt & uncle had one of those old top-loading VCRs. They had it for over 20 years. heh.

I was born in 73, so I remember a lot of these too. I'm somewhere between a "grew up in the 70's" and a "grew up in the 80's" person.

I'm constantly telling my daughter "When I was younger...." and often mentioning the rotary phones and getting up to turn the channel. Also cooking tv dinners in the oven and having to wait a whole 30 minutes to eat.

Were breakfast squares and food sticks from the 70's?

eggplant, Weird Al's songs were first played on the Dr. Demento show, which here in the L.A. area broadcasted from what was then called KMET 94.7 FM ("Little Bit of Heaven 94.7, KMET tweedledee") in the 1970's. I remember listening to Weird Al back in 1974.



You remember when there was only "G", "PG", and "R". And X!



Yep!



You remember when your cable TV box had a sliding selector switch and your "cable or VCR remote" was connected to the TV by a CORD! There was cable in the 70's?



Yes indeed! There was cable in the 1970's. Although we didn't sign up for it until around 1981, the Z channel existed back in the 1970's. I believe it was based right here in Santa Monica. I remember the ads on the sides of the Santa Monica Blue Buses. The "mascot" was the "goddess Zeta". The channel had a reputation for an excellent and eclectic lineup of movies, and its demise was mourned by a lot of movie lovers.





Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape. Nope. Vinyl.



Same here. I've never owned an 8-track tape or the machine to play them on in my life.



Your parents paid $2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table. We didn't get ours until about 1985.



We got ours about 1977. The first videotape I ever watched was a crappy bootleg copy of Star Wars. Darth Vader looked REALLY tiny on our TV set compared to what I had just seen on the big screen.



You've recently horrified yourself by using any one of the following phrases: "You know, back when...," "When I was your age...," or "When I was younger..." More and more every day...

I must say, a lot of these ARE 80's things (Pac-Man, flipped up collars, leg warmers, Mr. Bill, "gagged with a spoon" and Tron, for starters)



Isn't it just like those 70s kids to try and rip us off.

Yeah, I was a 70s kid, but an 80s teen (born 1969) too. Amy, I guess you Californians were ahead of us Eastcoasters, because Weird Al and cable weren't in my universe until the 80s. But then I just realized that my parents' still have one rotary phone in the basement! We're a slow-moving family. I still don't have a cell phone...

Yeah, I noticed that some of the stuff was early very early 80s too (legwarmer didn't really come out until the 80s and JR was actually shot in 1980). But who cares? To me, the late seventies and the early 80's blended in together. I was not a teenager yet. I seperate my life in to ranges like 0-10 year old and 10 to 20 and 20 to 30 ...and so on. (eek there is a so on).



I like Amy SF's club suggestion!



Because of this thread, I was singing Great American Hero in my head last night and thinking up all sort of fun '70s theme songs and couldn't fall asleep!



Since I am such a big 70s kid dork, I am thinking we should have a 70s' 'Name that Tune' Theme Song Sing-a-long! (could be a new thread!)



Anyone know what this one is:



"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Schlemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated...We're gonna do it!"





(FYI: the worst part about it is that I don't even have to look these lyrics up on the net - How geek am I! )

I don't belong in this thread, but I've got a story. One of my high school math teachers told us once that when she was growing up in New York, she lived in the same apartment building as the man who invented Atari. He used to test the games on her and her siblings, and she is pretty sure that she actually kept the first prototype for Pac-Man. She doesn't know for sure if it's still among her things, but if it is... Could you imagine what some collector would pay for that?

I identify with 23 of these, which isn't bad, considering I was born in 1983. My family's rarely been on the cutting edge of anything pop-culture-wise. My parents still have their old rotary phone, which they keep on hand in case they need to make a call during a power outtage. At least, that was the reasoning before people in my family started getting cell phones a few years ago.

You mean my family wasn't as ingenious as we thought, calling my younger sister BooBerry? Another sister's nickname was Blueberry, but the younger one was called Boo a lot, which transformed into BooBerry.

Anyone but me remember what kind of dog he had and what it's name was?



I feel so old.

Does anyone remember the Bannana Splits? That Snorky was so cute!
