i would love to have had carnal relations with kelly preston back then. hell, if she'd shut up about scientology, i'd love to right now. (i'm guessing she hasn't had it in a while...)

You can have Meryl.  I'll take Winona.

And Corey Feldman is still wearing the exact same clothes today. And still thinks they are cool.

I think *I'd* take every lady featured in those photos.

I'd almost forgotten there was a time when Kirstie Alley was smokin'.

It's interesting how Emilio Estefez looks like a younger version of the current Martin Sheen, while the actual young Martin Sheen looked a lot more like Charlie.

I wasn't so young that I didn't sit up straight and pay slightly more attention to the screen when I saw Star Trek 2...

John Stamos has made some sort of deal with Satan to be hot until the end of time.

He must've gotten Rob Lowe in on the bargain as well, that dude just doesn't seem to age.  Though, in the picture in the article he does look more than a little bit like his character from Behind the Candelabra.

Look at them.

Look how f*cking stupid they look.

When you say you love the 80s, you endorse sh*t like this.

Pick a decade, any decade, and I can find something almost as absurd.

...almost.

Why are so many of them in black and white? Color photography was fairly common by the 80s you know.

And the 80s sucked donkey balls.

Both are excellent choices.  But let's not forget Jami Gertz.  Hell, she STILL looks great.

\and random observation, if I could find one, there are pics of my ex that look EXACTLY like Ally Sheedy does in that pic

No no no.

For every stupid boy band or vapid hair band in the 80s, there was an awesome postpunk group, or a cool artist, or a breakthrough writer. For every dayglo blazer there was a pair of canvas pants in black. For every big, teased hairdo there was a girl with a natural, nice body who wasn't doing a duckface or burying her nose in her iPhone.

The 80s were awesome.

Whatever, subby. Stop with the hyperb-

*clicks on link*


Umm.....I stand corrected.

The 80's, when the rock was hard, the videos were awesome, and the chicks wore big hair.  The 80's ruled your face, yo.

SWEET JEEBUS YES.

I about wore myself out to "Against All Odds" and "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."
 
2013-08-16 11:11:42 PM  
I guess I was a little cranky.

Also, I've been drinking.

The 80s did have Bloodsport, Aliens, RAD, Pretty Hate Machine, and Caddyshack.

So I suppose not all is lost.

Streep and a lot of other women were hot.

But the 80s still suuucked.

RAD? Seriously? I'd take 'Gleaming the Cube' over RAD any day of the week. And don't forget about Fast Times...I see the the globe right there.

That's why Dick Clark finally aged and died: Stamos sacrificed his marriage with Rebecca Romijin to the Devil, thus transferring the spell of eternal youth from Dick unto John.

All that proves is that Bill Murray was walking around drinking all day twenty years ago too.

Oh God yes - that wasn't too late at all.  They swung like champions.  It could be argued that she let them out at just the right time.

Yeah, but even better is John Schnieder being even more good looking now than when he was young, and he was pretty fine then!

I had Live Aid taped off the TV and watched it over and over.
 
2013-08-17 12:15:06 AM  
One of the things I remember about LiveAid was that the day was over 90 degrees and Madonna must have stunk like a cab driver after she was done.
Early 80s music>late 80s music
One of the things I remember seeing on Mtv in the late 80s, when we were all sick of the hair metal ballads and endless weak music was an interview with Nikki Sixx from the Crue, he said something like 'music's gotten pretty stale, someone's got to do something new here'.   He was pretty spot on and shortly after was proven right.  Been trying to find that clip forever.

Meg Tilly and Gina Gershon aged well too last time I saw a pic if them.
