The outer limits totally creeped me out, it still does.

But so did



Now when I see Tales from the Crypt it cracks me up! How on earth did we think that was scary???

LOL I was the channel changer. NO remotes. our antenna was hooked to that box with the dial, that turned it? And went SO slow!
And I remember when our dad brought home a color TV. Then yelled at us for watching shows that were still in black and white.

And when we got an Atari 2600. We were the coolest kids in the neighborhood. For an hour or so a week. Because that was all we were allowed to play it. That was ok. We still enjoyed being outside from sun up to sun down back then.

How about borrowing the neighbors VCR, so you could copy tapes?
Because no one had two VCRs back then.

I can also remember playing my Atari 2600 on my black and white TV.
Watching in Living Colour late at night on the weekends....ironically on the same black and white tv.

Ah mimieographs!

We got all our school tests handed out to us mimeographed.

No wonder the '60's were such high times!

Do you remember Homie-clause from in Living Color?
Lol I remember a Christmas one with him.

I had no idea she was on there.
Man, I just looked and like every Wayans family member was on that show. Jim aka James Carey.
Jamie foxx... look at his hair line. Seems like he has more hair now, than he did back then lol.

The power glove and virtual boy!

Game Gear.

Little Caesar's Bigfoot Pizza and Action Jackson on Friday night's, then later, Tales from the Crypt.

Wolfenstein and Doom on a Packard Bell that my mom bought with her savings...followed by a phone bill that depleted mine.

Pagers and then the bloop bloop of Nextel.
