When I got home from school, I played with my Atari 2600 (I actually had a Vic 20 before that)! I spent hours playing Pitfall or Pike's Peak or Omega Race (which I never beat but loved the music from). Then I watched "Scooby-Doo." I thought Shaggy was cute. I always wanted them to play the Three Stooges episode of "celebrity Scooby Doo". I hated Scrappy.
I got up on Saturday mornings at 6 a.m. to watch bad Hanna-Barbera cartoons like "Snorks," "Jabberjaw," "Captain Caveman," and "Space Ghost." In between I would watch "School House Rock." ("Conjunction junction, what's your function?")
Ronald Reagan was cool, I loved him. Gorbachev was the guy who built a McDonalds in Moscow. My family took summer vacations to the Gulf of Mexico and
collected "The Great Muppet Caper" glasses along the way. (We had the whole set as well as the Peanuts ones).
I listened to John COUGAR Mellencamp sing about Little Pink Houses for Jack and Diane. I was bewildered by Boy George and the colors of his dreams, red, gold, and green. MTV played videos. Nickelodeon played "You Can't Do That on Television" and "Dangermouse."
I went to school and had recess. I went to the same classes everyday.
Recycling? What was that? We just threw everything out in the same trash can!
I watched Ghostbusters when it came out in theaters for the first time and was a fan from day one. I also saw E.T. and cried at the ending.
Field day was bigger than Christmas, but it always managed to rain just enough to make everybody miserable before they fell over in the three-legged race.
Where did all those panty hose come from? "Deck the Halls with Gasoline, fa la la la la la la la la," was just a song.
The world stopped when the Challenger exploded. Did a teacher come in and tell your class?
Half of your friends' parents got divorced.
People did not just say no to drugs.
AIDS started, but you knew more people who had a grandparent die from cancer.
Somebody in your school died before they graduated.
When you put all this stuff together, you have my childhood. If this stuff sounds familiar, then I bet you are one, too.
I totally love Little Big Planet's Level Creator sometimes. I made the level/objects/etc. on PSN: "Elly-Sketchit".
