  1. Oh yes, Rhoda's mother from the Mary Tyler Moore show and Rhoda! Nancy Walker.
  2. I made a few of those for sure. One I gave to a guy, lord, I must have been nuts.
  3. I looked up a list of 80's commercials to refresh my memories and so many came back to me when I saw them listed, I picked the ones I recalled the best. The number one one that sticks in my mind I did not need to see on a list was the Fed/Ex guy, that one was huge.
  4. OMG, I seriously nearly added Stacey Q to that list a few hours ago, and I hate to say it, I liked that song!
  5. I was a member as well, but paid for things when I ordered them. I joined BMG as well, never did cash in all my free album coupons, and now they are gone.
  6. This pretty lady had many hits in the 80's. She was also well knows for her very long hair. She's also Loretta Lynn's sister.
  7. Several hits from this lady were very good.
  8. Lots of great songs from this lady. She had a powerful voice that could really belt it out. Loved her songs.
  9. Capitalizing on his huge successes on Family Ties and Back to the Future, Pepsi had Michael J. Fox doing anything to impress a beautiful neighbor looking for a can of it.
  10. I bet they paid Elton John a pretty penny for the use of his Sad Songs redux for the similar sounding Sasson Jeans.
  11. This catchy jingle had everyone asking who wears short shorts? And you'd better use Nair if you do!
  12. Nothing comes between Brooke and her Calvin's. The most beautiful teenager ever, God she was beyond stunning.
  13. They just don't make commercials with the same kind of pizzazz these days. Kelly LeBrock from The Lady in Red comedy, Weird Science did a popular series of commercials for Pantene hair products that had everyone saying, Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
  14. This commercial was also very popular in the 80's and had everyone asking, "Where's the Beef?"
  15. Who doesn't remember this popular Fed/Ex commercial with the fast talking guy!
  16. I'm not sure this will be your cup of tea, I know you love horror movies and I'm betting action adventure, this will likely be a bit slow moving and sappy for your taste, I could be wrong, but it's a wonderful movie. Avatar, the highest grossing movie of all time, good lord, I hated it, thought it was absurd and a waste of my time and money. So no accounting for taste. Do let me know how you like it if you watch it. I make a small edit to this, taking inflation into consideration, Gone With the Wind is still the top grossing movie of all time, but I meant a current movie.
  17. Cans and bottles would be in the blue boxes, but I've recently stopped recycling for a few different reasons even though I have for over 30 years. I've seen several vids on Youtube about how people think it helps, but it really doesn't. The resources used to transport the stuff there, then much of it is unwashed, considered contaminated and thrown out anyway, and plastic can apparently only be recycled a couple of times and then is too weak to do it and then tossed. Hauling the heavy boxes to the curb, risking falling, and for what? It to be tossed out for the most part anyway? I feel like a f
  18. I'm not a fan of body hair on anyone. I like the "swimmers look" where the men are smooth like seals. My preference would be no hair from the eyes down. Scalp, eyebrows, lashes, that it for either sex. There's a whole movement going on now with women embracing their body hair, it's just gross. Shave, you lazy, unkempt, lazy bitches is my opinion!
  19. One of my favorite movies of all time. I had a real thing for Christopher Reeve when he played Superman and this came out two years later. This movie has become a cult classic. It was so underrated when it came out and did not do great at the box office, but has garnered quite a following in the decades since. A time travel romance with an exquisite, haunting score by John Barry, and beautiful Jane Seymour filmed at a gorgeous hotel. I cannot watch this and not cry. It's a beautiful, gentle movie that romantics and ones that are sentimental will dearly appreciate. To this day fans gather at t
  20. One of my favorite 80's movies. The acting is not the greatest, but the story, the film score and the cinematography is beautiful. They were both so young and perfect looking. I've seen it countless times and am always enchanted by the simple tale.
  21. Cabbage Patch Dolls. I was too old for these when they came out, but I sure remember the craze around them. I recall one weekend my mom and my great aunt and I went to Buffalo for the weekend to do Christmas shopping and we went into this store, and this was at the height of the doll craze and they had gotten a shipment of these dolls in and they were placed in a pyramid at the front of the store and these women attacked that pile like animals, I'll never forget it, it was a site to behold. Disgraceful behavior by adults over some dolls for their brats.
  22. Many European women don't shave. My mom's bosses were from Belgium and Holland and they didn't shave. She was always disgusted in the summer when the one would wear sleeveless tops and her armpit hair was showing, and the unshaved legs. Gross.
  23. If we had nice bins on wheels they would be stolen, 100%. No garage or fence to lock them behind. We've had everything from bags of topsoil to garbage bags stolen that were right up by the door. Imagine stealing someone's garbage! Many years ago we took down some 45 year old curtains from a bay window, they were bulky and with the sheers and the curtains filled up 5 garbage bags. I put them outside to get them out of the house, and a couple of days later, they were gone. Hope they enjoyed the sun bleached and in tatters decades old curtains they found. I guess they figure there might be someth
