i am going to an 80s party tonight. i might pop my collar. which might prompt me to beat myself to death via tire iron. if i manage to sustain life, are you guys going to kill me anyway?

The 80s rule!

Take pictures.


#3

Bring back photos. Chop chop.


#4

You know you are old when college was just one big 80s party.

Have fun and definately pop the collar and post some pics....


#5

To be really "80's" you need a white polyester suit ala John Travolta. That and a stack of Donna Summer albums, with a couple of BeeGee's tossed in.


#6

Hey Road Warrior, that would be the 70'd baby! You must have lived it because only a guy who lived it would get it mixed up with a different decade, LOL!


#7

nah, still MIA from the 60's. I was too stoned to dance. Things have been a bit of a blur since Alamont.


#8

Dude, popping the collar is totally gay. Where have you been?


#9

You still have parachute pants and a Members only jacket?


#10

Like most people who didn't live it, I hate the 80's. (okay, I admit I was there for part of it, but I was too young to contribute anything) I detest it. I have a special kind of disgusted awe reserved for it. The level of badness is mind boggling.

Sorry, I'm done. Have a great time!

If you didn't take this opportunity to play "Miami Vice" and dust off your white penny loafers then you're a fool.

Either that or something from American Gladiators.


#12

no, and no ;(

i'm wearing black and white check vans (old school 80s)

baby blue adidas pants (just plain gay)

polo with popped collar (just gay)

and an adidas headband ( COOL!!! )

pics? will try. wish me luck.

check the paper tomorrow for aforementioned tire iron story. if i go, i'll likely take a half dozen or so with me.

You mean you don't pop your collar anymore?


#14

Ah, come on. Sure, the Glam Rock, excessive high intensity and contrast colors patterns (black, white, zebra print, pink, orange, green, exactly like most teens wear today!), electronic-(keyboards and drums)-in-almost-every-song had its charm.

A sustained attempt to be extreme (big hair included) that went wrong. That`s how I sum up the 80s.

There`s also a couple of minimalist/garage band gems too. Way cool!


#15

Mr. Fouts,

Please bring back pics...I need a good laugh.


#16

Attending high and college in the 80s was the best. Lots of fun without as much worry as today. Seriously sorry you missed out on the fun of the decade.


#17

#18
