    The thing that sticks in my mind from my youth are the Beatles. All my older brothers and myself were giving them a listen daily. It's amazing that Paul is still out there giving performances.
  6. Kill em All was released July 25th 1983, so album is just shy of being 30 years old. 30 fucking years old. Fuck

    Return of the Jedi was 1983, so thats 30 years old too. Thriller as well, well technically that was the end of 82.

    I dont remember all that much about the outside world before then, but trippy stuff that was 30 freakin years ago.

    I remember when MJ got snapped with the POTUS:


    He was sooo ultra cool around that time, everyone on the planet thought he was the shit.

    I remember vacuum powered windshield wipers, and windshield washers that ran off of the compressed air in the spare tire.

    My first car, a '57 Chevy had those. The wipers would slow down and sometimes stop when climbing a hill.

    I've got one the original prints of Kill em All on vinyl, didn't pick it up till 87/88 tho.

    And MJ was the shit, I remember one year he won so many grammy's and had to go to the podium so many times he was running out of people to thank and things to say. I consider Thriller to be one of the greatest albums of all time.
  11. I'm so old I had to create a new account because I couldn't remember my old password.

    I know it started with a letter. Or a number.

    something like that.

    some city transit buses still use air powered wiper motors....

    they use compressed air though instead of vacuum

    i'm so old, i remember when cd was a new kind of ignition system for cars.

    toilet paper didn't come on a roll. it came bound in a book with pictures in it. and the pictures were in black and white.

    crappers were completely automatic. you didn't have to flush anything. just throw ashes down the hole when you were done.

    cars had bumpers that were made out of metal, but you could get there quicker and cheaper on a train.

    the greyhound bus stopped where there was someplace to eat. and stayed there for half an hour for you to eat it.

    the train stopped in ten little towns between cities, and the bus stopped at 20.

    the railroad station also had a western union tellitype mashene and you could send a telegram to anywhere in the world from there. it also handeled package express and railway express agency would deliver it, in fores green trucks with red diamonds on the side.

    light rail was a brittish term for narrow gauge. and trollys were called trollys or street cars, and any city worth of being called one, had more trolly lines then places to park cars.

    when "the mall" was called down town, and streets ran through it.
