    PART 6 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1985

    We are halfway through our deep dive into the 80’s where as teenage boys we were into wrestling, new coke, compact dics. Windows 1.0 came out, some of us started to get into the PC computers, dialling into BBS and downloading stuff like tetris.

    PART 5 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1984

    PART 5 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1984

    1984 was a big year, we were 12 and 17 where music took over our lives. So much pop culture came out in terms of movies, books, tv and the LA olympics. But on the flip side you had one of the worst man made disasters in India with over 20 thousand people dying.

    AIDS just started filtering down to high school and barely understood what was happening.

    Walkman cassette players were a fixture with your music video channels.

    PART 4 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1983

    Here we go as we deep dive into 1983, a big year for music for both of us. We talk about the big albums, yes LP’s not as much cassettes. We also talked about how close were to nuclear war with some major events happening over the pacific.

    But we can’t forget about some of the toys that took over like cabbage patch dolls, my little pony and other atrocities that continue to this day.

    PART 3 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1982

    PART 3 – Deep Dive Into The 80’s – 1982

    Here we go as we deep dive into 1982, part of our series into this decade. We found out that this year was a big year for us. E.T. of course was a big movie at the time, you either watched it in a cinema or at the drive-in.

    The top song that year from Joan Jett which was huge. Try to list another one? Big duos and keyboards started to come out. Human League had a big video. Which you hear more often than those duos.

    But what stood the test of time? Poltergeist.. huge! How many movie have taken bits from this flick. Our horror movie era.

    We also talk about some of the news headlines and other things that we still remember.

    PART 2 – Deep Dive into the 80’s 1981

    PART 2 – Deep Dive into the 80’s 1981

    Oh yeah! part 2 of our deep dive into the 1980’s focusing on the year 1981 with Jocelyn.

    We focused a lot on the movies from that year. That year where movie ratings started to matter, where some of us could sneak into movies while I was getting shocked by Raiders of the Lost Ark. Which still holds up nicely and deserves a viewing.

    Drive-in’s were starting to be on the downturn. Cannonball Run was probably the last of its kind, where if you were to search for clips on youtube, still fantastic to watch. But who can forget my story about how I watched Porky’s in a flooded basement.

    James Bond is still Roger Moore with his over the top movies, For Your Eyes Only including Sheena Easton title track keeping me up at night.

    Can’t forget about Microsoft MSDOS version 1. Shipped on objects known as the save icon today. MTV music video station debuted.

    and a bunch more stuff….
