      if you're talking about the old days when we brought cigarettes, fireworks and pocket knives to elementary school, then I have to agree.

    3. BigO


      Agreed. A few seconds ago when I was finishing that last Starburst, life was good.

  2. I want to live in a world where Duran Duran is still relevant... and no, I'm not counting that lame 'Wedding Album' crap.

      maybe you should switch to Cheech & Chong's "Wedding Album"

    3. x=usr(1536)


      @GoldLeader: and 'Drive By' is a pretty good followup to it, too :D

  3. Had a dream in which I picked up a small haul of vintage computer items curbside last night. Highlights included a rare (nonexistent) Commodore PET variant that my subconscious concocted, and a prototype cart of Pikmin II for C64.

      Welp, then I guess it's just a random thing your mind has generated.

    3. adam242


      Yeah, the PET has always been near-and-dear to me. First computer I ever used in school..  Actually owned a 4032 from my elementary school for a few years before regrettably selling it. Current prices are prohibiting me from reacquiring one.

      Hmmm..Maybe throw it here:



  4. I want to live in a world where A Flock Of Seagulls is still relevant.

      Nailed it!  I once wrote a whole BLOG about it...On my Myspace page around 2006!

  5. Sitting on my bed, playing Star Raiders on a 400. It's 1982 all over again!

    1. adam242


      The 400/800 version was decent, unlike the 2600 bomb. Never got super into it though.


  6. Posted a status update that sixteen subscribers 'liked'. Got taken down before the rest of you could enjoy it.

    1. Keatah


      What was it about?


    2. Tickled_Pink


      @Keatah Probably Microsoft buying PornHub or something. This is wholesome family-orientated forum, so that kind of thing is frowned upon.

  7. Make Atari Great Again

    1. GoldLeader


      The new incarnation?  Not possible (and they never were great)...The old Atari?  Always been Great!  

    2. JacobZu7zu7


      Atari light on, but no one home. marc rodriguez fun GIF

  8. I'm DONE with 2020. I hope I wake up tomorrow sometime in the late 70s-early 80s. Just leave me there.

      I'd be stoked to wake up in 1983. 

    3. doctorclu


      I'm more Bill & Ted thought.  No better time than now.

  9. GF and I broke in the brand new Weber charcoal grill with some ribeyes and potatoes. Outside kittens were very curious and supportive!


  10. Girlfriend serves up awesome home grilled burgers in bed with a beer and a Jodie Foster DVD? Yes, winning..

      It was Flightplan. Not her best work, but enjoyable.

    3. JacobZu7zu7


      Cool, I found her older movie Foxes 1980, to be surprisingly good.

    4. adam242


      My favorite of her films is probably Little Man Tate from '91.

  11. I looked at the trap, Ray..

    1. adam242


      GF and I watched that in bed with a really good local pizza this afternoon. GOOD SUNDAY.

    2. GoldLeader


      Funny,  I  just read a Ghostbusters comic where he also says that line...

  12. RIP my Volvo S40. Managed to overheat the engine to the point of failure with no warning, shop wants $3500 to install a used engine. More than the car's worth.



    1. SlidellMan


      My neighbor has an '80s Volvo 240 GL that he wants to sell, but you'd have to drive a long distance in order to buy it.

    2. adam242


      LOVE those old-school 4-cylinder RWD Volvos. The two 760 wagons I had were two of the best cars I've ever owned.

    3. GoldLeader


      My mom used to drive a '76 Volvo, (I think it was) bought new back in the day...

  13. Just watched Uncle Buck for the first time in years. John Candy was truly a gem.

    1. Shawn


      Yep, that movie is a classic. 

    2. JacobZu7zu7


      "Are you crazy?!" ... I can be. 🤣

  14. She was so pretty, she made Charlize Theron look like a big, fat slobbering pig.

  15. "tightened that bad sucka 'side the runway like a motha" RIP all the old, un-PC movies of our childhoods. Things were better, in the past.


    Not woke!

    1. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      Airplane II, in the court room!

    2. adam242


      Bro was ON!

    3. SlidellMan


      I would rather take fifty of The Underground Comedy Movie, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, Poultrygeist, or the Ungovernable Films' filmography over PC-friendly crap any day. In fact, I'm working on an un-PC comedy film that can be best summarized as Love at Stake + Date With an Angel + Newgrounds' brand of raw and crude. (Pre-Legendary-Frog-and-Eddsworld Newgrounds, I might add.)

  16. Dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang, dang!

  17. It wasn't Elvis, sorry... Chuck Berry single-handedly invented Rock-N-Roll!

  18. Do you sing like Olive Oyl on purpose?

    You guys must be into The Eurythmics!


    I don't want to live in this world anymore...

    1. CPUWIZ


      Oyl?  Never had that.

  19. Wow. Comes pre-damaged, no need to worry about what will happen in transit!

      Ew... Just... It might be alive

    3. Swami


      "item is not guaranteed to work" :lolblue:

  20. Anyone else excited about the Intellivision Amico? Looks perfect to me... 2600 gameplay with updated graphics! Pre-ordered mine...

  21. Still have Open Pit and A1 Steak Sauce here... living life with my amazing girlfriend.

  22. The way the morning broke was quite unusual.

  23. Aaaand my drug dealer neighbor across the street continues to pretend life is normal. Traffic from the ghetto comes and goes. He lives with two elderly women, his aunt and one of her friends. He needs to fucking die.

      This is starting to sound kinda like season 9 of Trailer Park Boys...

    3. RodLightning


      @eddhell  It's Trailer Park Boys everywhere these days.  My local area was fine 10 years ago.  Ghetto drug culture is growing, and coming to a neighborhood near you!  LOL  :)
