Reliving my Youth - The 80's part 1

For the next few weeks, I am going to take you back to the wonderful 80's.  The time of big hair, wood paneling, and techno-pop rock. 

There seems to be a resurgence of 80's remakes and such lately. Hollywood hasn't had an original idea in decades. And the 80's remakes are generally worse and ruin my memories of the subject matter.  Although there are some exceptions to this.  The first Transformers movie was cool, GI Joe was awful.  I would love to see a M.A.S.K. live action movie if it was done well.  (Hoping a Care Bears or Hong Kong Fooey live action/CG project never sees the light of day.)

Well thanks to the power of the Internet I can relive my youth. Saturday mornings watching cartoons can be accomplished through the web. Classics like the Littles, Rubik the Amazing Cube, or Saturday morning Supercade or an episode of the old Pac-Man cartoon.

Or weekday afternoons watching M.A.S.K or G.I. Joe. You can even see some of the many commercials from that era.

This is especially fun to do while eating a bowl of Lucky Charms or another "kid" cereal. And once your breakfast is over, and the cartoons are done, waste some time playing your Atari 2600 just use the pull down menu at the bottom, and play a ton of your old favorites!

Feel like a night out at the movies? Then you can watch such films as Back to the Future, and more at
Ah if we could only go back to that time. When Regan economics made the gummi bears and money flow like water...

Next week we will take a closer look at the weekday cartoons.
