Advantages: A wonderful look to the past
A call to arms my friends, for all things 80's. This site has it all. Do you remember the rubix cube? Do you remember Mr T and his unfeasably large collection of gold chains? Did you ever wonder, like me, if he was single-handedly keeping the market for gold afloat?
Great memories are made of these things. I remember coming home from school and watching The Wonder Years on TV - it seems so long ago, but I smile just thinking about it.
It's great to see a website that's so firmly devoted to our recent past instead of the thousands looking to the future. We need to remember where we came from if we are to get where we're going.
80snostalgia.com has a great little section on Classic TV with summaries of each of the programs featured, still images, sound bytes, even some video clips.
Remember the Mysterious Cities of Gold? It's there - they've got a nice little video clip of the intro bit.
They have the first ever episode of He-Man in Real Video format... That is something you have to watch with your friends - it'll bring tears to your eyes (of laughter). I don't remember it being QUITE so cheesy when I was younger...
Thundercats? *snarf snarf* I remember this was really cool for its time - all the cool vehicles they used, all the nifty gadgets they had.
The person who has made the site has gone to a lot of effort putting it together. He's written a few personal memories of the 80's - on BMX bikes, Rubix Cubes, Mouse Trap (you know - that game with the plastic bits and the mouse that got caught in the cage) and so on.
There's a very amusing 80's Dictionary - look up all those words you cringe to think that you said back then.
Another thing that is BRILLIANT is they have a browser-friendly retro-games section. Play Boulderdash to your heart's content. Play Paperboy until you get sick of it for the second time in your life. r>
I'd recommend anyone who's 18 and over (solely because you'll remember the 80's) to go and have a look. It's one of the few sites that makes me genuinely happy because it brings back so many good memories of my childhood.
Hope you enjoy it too,
