This topic is sort of like Rory's, "Blast From the Past," thread, but it's strictly dedicated to the discussion of everything related to the 1980's era. Discuss your favorite or least favorite music, movies, videogames, edibles, beverages, clothes, cars and hair styles from the 1980's era. I'll soon be searching the internet for anything related to the 1980's era and posting it here in this bodacious thread. What I remember most about the 1980's was it's music and movies. It was also the only era when it was acceptable for a guy to wear bleach washed blue jeans with a pink Izod or Bugle Boy shirt and multi-colored neon shades. Although, I've been informed that multi-colored neon shades are actually coming back into style. They were definitely simpler times, even if it may not seem that way. So let the reminiscing commence my friends!

the 80`s was the era when samplers became the new medium in music production.
we now live in a world were the amen break (the winstons - amen brother) and think break (lynn colins - think) are common place in early rap music, dance music, pop music, and tv theme tunes. all of which have been touched at some point by the drum loops sampled from two relatively unknown 60`s records.
good examples of these include, NWA - straight outta compton, rob base and ez rock - it takes two, and the futurama theme tune.
the early days of rave music, pretty much grew from extensive deconstructing and reconstructing of these break beats, especially the amen break, and is still pretty much in common use in todays dance music.



Never umder estimate the predictablility of random coincidence.

How about some Zubaz! These things were produced in the late 80s, but they didnt get popular until the early 90s. Good god, my stepdad used to wear these things all the time. And so did my neighbor....so much that we actually nicknamed him Zuba. Lol


Damn! Those guys are cool

How about Parachute pants or Moonboots? Also "Preppies" and "Valley girls"? Not to mention sayings like "Gnarly!" Groady to the max! or Gag me with a spoon!

Edit: Oh! Also break dancing.

Are moonboots what Napolean dynamite wore in his dance number?

How about the Big Wheel? I was always riding that thing everywhere.

Ha! Yeah, those good old Big Wheels. What about the Sit & Spin Rory, or did you not own one of those as a child?

My cousin had the Sit and Spin toy. I wasn't a big fan of getting dizzy so I never wanted one for myself.

The other toy I had was the Jumping ball. It was that big rubber ball that you sit on and bounce all over the damn place. I probably drove my parents nuts with that thing. Twisted Evil

Oh, hell yeah! I know exactly which toy you're referring to Rory. I could never sit on those and balance myself correctly, though. While we're on the subject of classic toys, do any of you guys remember the Balzac Balls? Water balloons were supposed to last forever, but they would just consistently break after every couple of times they were tossed. Epic fail! Evil or Very Mad

Who would've thought anybody could become filthy fucking rich from a ceramic planter.

I have a few concepts of my own for an invention, but I don't have the type of cash needed to fund such an endeavor.

Of course I remember them. We ended up buying the Father-in-Law the Obama chia pet.

I can't remember what they're called but do you guys remember those bracelets with the funky 80s design that you flick across your wrist and they will twist around into a bracelet. I remember everyone in our grade went crazy over these.

Oh, yeah! I remember those for sure Rory. You're referring to those thin metal bracelets that were wrapped with multi-colored fabric, right? Ha! If I actually owned an Obama chia pet, I would trim him up with a flat-top fade. lol

What about T.V. shows from the 1980's? Do any of you guys remember that Nickelodeon show You Can't Do That on Television?
