Ahhh the roaring 80's!
I still live in the 80's at my house. lol. I Mostly, I keep the satellite radio on 80's hairbands, 80's top 40, or 80's country. I watch mostly old TV
shows. My wife prefers 80's too. I was born in '71, I grew up as a 70's/80's kid. !984-1989 seemed magical for many reasons. The music was good, the
movies were good, actors were intriguing(not like the lame-o ones of today) TV shows were different from each other, actors and musicians were vastly
different from each other(individualism), -instead of this 'uniform' crap they have now.
The economy was good, most seemed happy. On the weekends, after working hard all week, many people played with their toys, be it boats, new vehicles,
ATV's, campers, etc., etc.. But you don't see a lot of that anymore. Mostly, only the rich get to do those things. Old camping spots have grown over
and many other places have too. It's like nobody does anything, anymore. It's sad.
I cannot stand new music. I cannot stand most new TV shows or movies(reference Inglorious Basterds). Even most of the commercials suck. It's almost as
if the non-talented got control of everything, ripped off the talented, and we have to endure it. The talented are being suppressed other than getting
ideas stolen by the idiots. The roaring 80's was an incredible time. I have so many great memories. I would love to see it come back around, but I
doubt it ever will. I think we'll slip further into this cesspool that has been hanging on since about 1996. Most of my family and friends agree with
me, as we talk about it occasionally.
But if the 80's come back, I still have some ripped-up jeans and my Levi jacket somewhere
Oh, and mullets are still cool. I don't know what this hate is for them(I have my suspicions).
