Puking after smoking them. tongue

The British heavy metal invasion and American thrash 

Yamaha YZingers - blown away when I first saw one.
Head shops.  Snow Dust - Coke Snuff - Rush....sold to 12 year olds.  crazy.

It's crazy there was so much cool stuff back then, it's hard to recall all of it. Kiss cards and big league chew! Think we were all obsessed with cig lighters and playing with fire. That can of charcoal starter got used up a lot faster back in those days. lol


It wasn't the Atari 2600 ET video game that caused Atari's fall from grace, it was Atari's version of Pac-Man released years before. Ha!
