Goosebumps (I wasn't much of a reader, but everyone was reading these books, I should read them again)
Bobby's World
Duck Tales
The ORIGINAL Power Rangers
NES, Sega, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64

Ash Wednesday
I'm on the tail end of Generation X, i.e. born in the mid 70s. My early childhood consisted of:
Evel Knievel, disco, Buck Rogers, Star Wars, the Carter and Reagan presidencies.

Then mainstream childhood was the 80s -- there was Cabbage Patch Kids, Care Bears, Smurfs, Transformers, music like Michael Jackson and Duran Duran, break dancing, and being afraid of the Soviets.

Adolescence was the New Kids on the Block craze, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, frosty eyeshadow, big earrings, neon mascara, and stone washed jeans and watching communism collapse.

Then as a teenager and in college it was all 90s, grunge, Clinton, flannel shirts, mosh pits.

The post-college 2000s have been a pretty exhausting decade for me. All I can think and bother to say about this decade is, "adulthood is tiresome."

I had the Evel Knieval motorcycle that jumped over the RV. He was the coolest at the time.

I remember how I dressed in the late 70s early 80s when I was 12. I remember OP corduroy shorts, Sex Wax t-shirt (I still wear them) Vans slip-ons, no socks and a Senor Lopez pullover, pictured below. Jeff Spicoli was an image of how we surfers actually dressed back then not just an over exaggerated joke.

Later, depending on the time in the 80s, we had either polo pastel shirts with Sperry Topsiders and later towards the mid eighties it was flattop hair and rolled up pants with black shoes, white socks and a button up short sleeve shirt left opened with a wife beater underneath or and I am afraid to say this a concert t-shirt with parachute pants. Funny very funny.

In the 90s it was Z. Cavaricci then Grunge.

Responsibility and growing up is not what its all made out to be. :)
