Someone decided to check out the VHS tapes they found in grandma's attic?

Correction.
The 80s were "rad"
The 70a were "groovy"

I swear that guy looks just like the kid who was first singles at my high school, 1987-1989.

If I had a rack like that I'd never pay for another thing in my life. With money, anyway.
 
2022-06-28 6:36:53 PM  
yeah, "rad" or "awesome" are more appropriate descriptors for the 80s. Late 60s and 70s would be called "groovy."
 
2022-06-28 6:38:50 PM  
Well that certainly wasn't what I was expecting.

Absolutely. "Groovy" didn't make a comeback until 1994, and then only ironically.

Nobody has ever called the 80's "groovy" until this Fark headline, the 80s were very deliberately anti-groovy

Awesome, and I still say it. I'll be in the nursing home and it will be, "Nurse Neveah, can crush some of those awesome sleeping pills into my applesauce?

[Fark user image 707x465]


Ah, yes. Simona Halep.

Damn, SaveTheBoobies.com is no longer up. Sure, saying that a woman shouldn't reduce her natural gifts through her own volition is rather abhorrent but it would have been interesting for about twenty seconds to see the shiatstorm it would have created on the Twitter of today.

I mean, my dad was stationed in West Germany all through the 70s and I can't count the classmates who cried every day about not being stateside. Idiots.

Did I disagree with you? No. I was adding more for emphasis. Let me quote my post for you, and you can look for any hint of contradiction. Just kidding, I'm not quoting my post, it's already up there quoted anyway.

Parents sent my sister and I to Kindergarten with matching zippered jumpsuits in Autumn Gold and Harvest Brown form the Sears catalog.

Oh yeah, the colors of late-'60s and early '70s.

This eventually led to the Great K-Mart Sneaker rebellion of the late '70's. Parents agreed to up our allowance, but we were expected to buy our own dang clothes.
