Lol, remember when remixes were all the rage for songs? Ha, I thought that was funny.
Anyways, I wrote a post about things I don’t miss about the 80’s previously, and I thought now would be a good time to add another one, cause they are fun, and totally rad 😉
VCR’s. Yes, I know people still have them and some people pat themselves on the back that they still have a working VCR after all these years, but I mean they really were the worst. Raise your hand if you lost a precious videotape to your VCR deciding now would be a good time to eat it? Yup, we’ve all been there And then all the times the videotape would just stop playing for some unfathomable reason. And the constant rewinding of the videotape just sucked. I personally think whoever invented the DVD player was an absolute genius
My Little Pony. Oh, wait… those darn things are still here. Having a second revival… Ugh, can’t we just leave these annoying ponies back in the 80’s?
Bad Sitcoms Who Always Had a “Lesson Learned” At The End. I am looking at you Growing Pains, Family Matters, Charles in Charge and Who’s The Boss. If you did something wrong, it’s okay as long as you learned “a valuable lesson” in less than 30 minutes. Gag me with a spoon. Seriously…
Kenny G. Apologies to those that heart his music, but it makes my ears bleed and want to hide his saxophone where he could never, ever find it.
Lee Press On Nails. Why was this a thing? No really, why? Plastic nails that used some sort of sticky waxy substance that sort of but not really, attached the fakest looking things you’ve ever seen in your life, to your nail. You hoped that it wouldn’t fall off, but it always did. It always did…
Jelly Shoes. For those not in the know, jelly shoes were some cheap concoction of plastic webbing that was super inexpensive to buy, and came in all sorts of colors including fluorescent pink (my color of choice at the time). They were these slip-on shoes that caused your feet to sweat immediately after putting them on, and because they were cheap plastic without any sort of proper sole, your feet would literally burn on the pavement the minute you stepped out into the sun. Wearing those shoes was like walking on hot coals when it was summertime. And yet, everyone continued to wear them. With sky-high bangs and permed hair probably.
What don’t you miss about the 80’s? Do you still have a VCR?
