One's recollections of the 70s are probably best fuzzy, frankly. It was a bad hair decade.

I was 3-12 in the 70s...I didn't have to worry much about those bad hair styles...my parents kept me in crew cuts.

By 'a bad hair decade', I mean just about everything concerning the 70's was in bad style. It was probably a decade of trying to turn the 60's into something commercial, and failing to get the point.

Aside from punk and it's offshoots, the 80's were pretty bad, too.

Naah, 70's music rocked, especially in Los Angeles where different strains of music melded. Country, rock, jazz, blues, R&B, soul all came together for some incredible music. Some sounds a bit hokey today but the 70's was a convulsive time in the music industry with small private labels and artists not allied to major producers.

But the clothing ...ewww. Especially the stuff worn to discos. Polyester, verry berry bad for sweating in.

Well, no, when disco is mentioned, the 70's is mostly what comes up. 80's is associated with big hair bands, pop music, and the 90's with grunge....

But the 80s are definately back. Went furniture shopping yesterday, popped into a new place and it was like being in a Cindi Lauper video.

Dude, flynn, date yourself a bit more, why don'tcha? They've been doing a new TMNT show for ages, and the Strawberry Shortcake stuff has been crazy for like a year. :)

Well, I don't watch too much TV, and apparently we don't get the new TMNT up here in Canada. As for Strawberry Shortcake, I have 2 boys, 8 & 9 year old, so we're more focused on matchbox cars, and the like. Heh.

Date myself? Heh. We didn't have a computer in our classroom till Grade 6, and then it was an Apple 2e. One computer for 30 kids. By the time I hit high school, we were working on IBM PCXT's with no hard drives, and green monitors.
When I went to NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) in 1991, they had 286's with an astounding 5 mb hard drive.
Heck, I remember getting my first CD player. 1986, $200 for a single CD player unit, and my first CD was the Top Gun soundtrack! Hehehe.
My first computer, 1990, was a 286, and I bought a 40 meg hard drive for $450 a year later. Ye gods....
I still remember laser discs. Beta machines. When McDonalds came in the styrofoam containers. The Berlin Wall. Gorby. Records. Those movies in those plastic catridges that were about the same size as a laser disc, but weren't. Anyone else remember what they were, and what they were called?

Favourite shows: Scarecrow & Mrs. King , Hart To Hart, Knight Rider, Airwolf, Spiderman (old one), just to name a few.
B.J & The Bear, Smokey & The Bandit. McDonalds had pizza. The McLean. The McRib. Jolt. V.
