Sadly, over half of those seemed "normal" to me. Maybe I just don't realize how bad the 80's were because I'm still rocking down to....electric avenue.

NateAsbestos: How in the hell is this one "awkward"? Because to me it looks AMAZING


I don't think people really understand how all-pervasive Nintendo was in the 80s. It wasn't just a video game system, it was a lifestyle and a culture. We didn't just play Nintendo, we ate Nintendo cereal and slept in Nintendo jammies. At school, all we talked about at recess and lunch was Nintendo, because the games were hard and there was no Internet back then so we mostly relied on our friends for tips, tricks, secrets and maps. And Nintendo Power Magazine. On the odd occasion when you beat a game, you quickly turned on your VCR and plugged in your "Nintendo Endings" VHS cassette and pushed record, because you'd never know if you'd ever get the chance to beat the game again. And you needed to prove it to your friends.

So that picture is far from awkward. That kid was very easily the most badass kid in his school.

OH YES.

And for some reason I'm now reminded of the glow-in-the-dark zombie pirate doll I had. I dropped him down the corner where my bed met the wall and was too scared to retrieve him. I spent months sleeping with my pillows piled up over the gap so he couldn't climb back up.

They do at my place. And some of them are still wearing the shiny polyester blouses too, wafting around in clouds of Giorgio perfume, with shiny hosiery that looks like their legs have been stuffed into sausage casings.

Okay, I take it back. I had one of those. Still have almost the entire set. Lost the Neanderthal man to a badly placed foot, the triceratops has suffered some serious battle damage, and I can't find half of the wholly mammoth's trunk. I've been dragging those things around with me since I was a kid. I wish I had a place to set them up and the skill to undo all the damage I did to them in my youth. (A child with the manual dexterity of a striped-ass baboon and a penchant for gloss paint should not be allowed to paint anything. Ever.)

I worked at this place that made those synthetic corks for wine bottles so we had to wear hair nets. There was this women there that had held onto her big 80s hairstyle about 20 years too long. When she put on her hair net she looked like a giant Q-Tip. The net made her head look perfectly round trying to contain all that hair.

We're through being cool
We're through being cool
Eliminate the ninnies and the twits
Going to bang some heads
Going to beat some butts
Time to show those evil spuds what's what
If you live in a small town
You might meet a dozen or two
Young alien types who step out
And dare to declare
Spank the pank who try to drive you nuts
Time to clean some house
Be a man or a mouse
Waste those who make it tough to get around
If you live in a big place
Many factions underground
Chase down mister hinky dink
So no trace can be found
Put the tape on erase
Rearrange a face
We always liked Picasso anyway

I kind of lost track of what stupid fad fell into what decade.. I just remember Skidz, IOU and BUM Equipment, Rat tails, Z-Cavarici, Hypercolors, pump up Reboks, Slap braclets, girls who traded one of their chuck taylors for their best friends and wore them mix-match, Jams Shorts..

LordOfThePings: Ishkur: NateAsbestos: How in the hell is this one "awkward"? Because to me it looks AMAZING

I don't think people really understand how all-pervasive Nintendo was in the 80s. It wasn't just a video game system, it was a lifestyle and a culture. We didn't just play Nintendo, we ate Nintendo cereal and slept in Nintendo jammies. At school, all we talked about at recess and lunch was Nintendo, because the games were hard and there was no Internet back then so we mostly relied on our friends for tips, tricks, secrets and maps. And Nintendo Power Magazine. On the odd occasion when you beat a game, you quickly turned on your VCR and plugged in your "Nintendo Endings" VHS cassette and pushed record, because you'd never know if you'd ever get the chance to beat the game again. And you needed to prove it to your friends.

So that picture is far from awkward. That kid was very easily the most badass kid in his school.

Plus we all became plumbers.

Well, that was the joke, but I must say your perm was better than any result my pubic curling wand was able to achieve.

I kind of lost track of what stupid fad fell into what decade.. I just remember Skidz, IOU and BUM Equipment, Rat tails, Z-Cavarici, Hypercolors, pump up Reboks, Slap braclets, girls who traded one of their chuck taylors for their best friends and wore them mix-match, Jams Shorts..

My mother sang in a band in 1985 or so (I was born, my younger sister was not yet) and she had That hair too- redhead 'fro. There's a picture she has somewhere wearing a white dress with teal cow spots and matching teal pumps. My mom was totally hip back in the day.

It's a shame I'm six inches taller and 30 lbs heavier- she still has most of that horrendous 80's wardrobe and I would totally borrow it for 80's parties if I could fit it all.

Pick: In 10-20 years pictures taken today, will be looked at and scorned, as these are today, when mullets, faded bell bottom jeans, sparkly clothes are back in style.


You do realize one of the few things that help parents make it through teenagers is knowing in 10-20 years when they look back, they will be horrified.

It's most effective to unleash the photos when the grandkids are teenagers. Something about revenge and the proper serving temperature.

Let the mocking commence.

An A-Ha cassette? Loser!

The A-Ha cassette is not nearly as damning as the Phil Collins CD.

/child of the 80s

I'd say the biggest sin is what appears to be The Pet Shop Boys tape, right beside Phil. Or it could be Bros. ...


I think it's probably Hall and Oates.

Harry in 1980. That 'druggie haircut' was the bane of the Command Sergeant Major. The pencil in the ear? No reg against it.

Got to wear civvies when we went downtown to assemble the newspaper for the command.

All the stuff on the walls were funny captions that I wrote for photos we received the Army Public Affairs. Evil 'grip 'n grins', PX Exchange openings and evergreens. See? I was farking even before there was a Fark.


Another DINFOS Trained Killer? Loves it! I was Army Public Affairs from '83-'96, and my cubicle at Fort Gordon had that same "Fark Prototype" look to it. Heck, we probably published each others work in our command newspapers. Not gonna post a photo of me in a similar pose, though. In the early 80s, I was rocking a permed mini-mullet and windshield eyegoggles.

/Wish I still had that tank of a desk, though.

We're through being cool
We're through being cool
Eliminate the ninnies and the twits
Going to bang some heads
Going to beat some butts
Time to show those evil spuds what's what
If you live in a small town
You might meet a dozen or two
Young alien types who step out
And dare to declare
Spank the pank who try to drive you nuts
Time to clean some house
Be a man or a mouse
Waste those who make it tough to get around
If you live in a big place
Many factions underground
Chase down mister hinky dink
So no trace can be found
Put the tape on erase
Rearrange a face
We always liked Picasso anyway
Mash 'em
