  • No Thundercats?

    and I can’t believe you admitted to your Petra love…

  • I LOVE PETRA AND STILL LISTEN TO THEM ALL THE TIME! and I’ve never met anyone who knew/liked Styper. I still listen to Honestly, its one of my favorite ballads. What an amazing song from a heavy metal band. that whole album was amazing. I wasn’t into heavey metal, but I somehow loved Stryper, i guess it was a way a preacher’s kid could safely rebel a little. :o) The 80’s were great! thanks for stirring the memories.

  • Hey Sam Luce,

    I just wanted to let you know that I came here because you sent me from your old blog. Wanted to let you know that will be reading. Also the only thing I remember from the eighties is my mom’s haircut. It was funny. I was born in the late 80s so I can’t really add anything to the discussion. Love your blog!

  • Say Anything is one of my favorite movies of all-time. And Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. And if you put One Crazy Summer up there, you have to also put Better Off Dead!

    One of my favorite 80s clothing trends was tying your t-shirts… I don’t think boys did it so much, but nothing was cooler than a knot in the bottom of your t-shirt to make it shorter. 🙂

  • Thanks for your comments.

    Jonathan, Yes Petra rocked. I loved them. Went to 5 or so concerts. My dad did not like “the beat” so even though it was Petra I had to listen to them on my dad’s preaching tapes that I recorded over.

    Karl, I was a Styper late bloomer. I bought To Hell With The Devil in 1997 to mock it and ended up loving it.

    Gina, YES parachute pants! Wanted them so bad. Closest I came were Skidz.

    JC thanks for reading my blog it is very humbling to think that the simple words I write help even one person. BTW you missed a great decade the 80’s was the bomb. You need to tightroll your jeans, rent the goonies and download a petra or cindy Lauper album right now!
