Nostalgia

AmyD, one of my favorite bloggers, wrote a post talking about songs that brought back memories. Since I wasn’t really into music when I was younger, very few songs evoke memories, but there are other things that certainly turn the wistful eye to the past. I thought I’d share a few.

    You have no idea how much I LOVE the HBO theme song. Brings back such amazing memories…

    You said “wistful” which means I continue to be very concerned for your wellbeing. Do I need to be?

    (Look! I’m commenting instead of vacation sleeping!)

    Amanda, I loved that opening!

    Hello, Jim Carrey is not in Teen Wolf. And I was going to post the MJF Pepsi commercial but decided not to. It’s too cheesy.

    Shiny, yeah, I saw it a few times.

    Hilly, as long as you don’t bite into it, you should be fine.

    Poppy, why would you need to be?

    Dan, Phoebe Cates was delicious.

    Trish, well, you ARE a grandmother.

    Kapgar, my parents couldn’t hook it up if their lives depended on it.

    Britt, it’s pretty much been Saturday for you for a week now hasn’t it?

    Thursday’s Child, I have the HBO intro song stuck in my head.

    ADW, just mount him and let him shake!

    Golfwidow, I know! That’s exactly how I felt.

    Jennifer, party on!

    Finn, they love you too.

    BE Earl, I used to love that theme. I hate their new one.

    Is it wrong to want to go rent Teen Wolf now?

    The video stopped right after the good guys blocked the shot and someone was about to chuck the ball all the way down the court. What happened?! Did they make it?? Did they win?

    You know, I used to stress out sooo badly during the Teen Wolf van-surfing scene. No matter how many times I saw it, I was firmly onvinced he was going to fly right the fuck off that thing. I have an ulcer just thinking about it.

    AWESOME!
    I must be getting old.
    Also, all those School House Rock ads. I actually had a VHS (haha) tape with a bunch of School House Rock Saturday morning things on it until someone snagged it.
    The HBO theme is my favorite. The sound was so gooood then – I mean it! It seriously gets you all excited for whatever’s coming next!
    Maybe THAT should be your theme music!

    Karl, add chocolate and that might be my idea of a movie theater in heaven.

    Sarah, you mean you don’t own it on DVD? What’s wrong with you?

    J, yeah, although even now he still looks pretty young.

    AmyD, I just remember the side boob in Teen Wolf.

    Kylah, thank you. I now feel ancient.

    Kyra, you’re a weirdo!

    Sybil, I totally should have used that for my vlog intro.

    Lynda, I think that one is even older than that, though.

    Heather, I loved that show!

    Jasmine, omg lol!

    MyWeeWorld, I remember them calling it the zapper. I think they wanted to avoid calling it a “gun”.

    TMP, I love that VH1 show, too.

    Trukindog, you’re only as old as I make you feel.

    Dickie, what about Airheads? Remember those?

    1. Wow, that really brought back memories! Especially movie night with my parents.
    2. It didn’t have the ending, the best part when he ignores the bitch and goes for Booth. Was that her name?
    3. Ok, now I definitely know I watched way too much tv as a kid.

    Bonkers candy. Mmm. Watermelon was my favorite. I remember that cranky lady from the Wendy’s commercials, and that “falling star” McDonald’s commercial used to make me cry. I’d sing the Tootsie Roll commercial while riding my bike or scooter around the neighborhood. “Teen Wolf” was one of my favorite movies.

    My sister used to dance in front of the TV (as a toddler) when the HBO Special Feature music used to come on. My dad would say, “It’s on! It’s on!”, and she’d come running from wherever she was, grab hold of the TV set, and shake her butt. Good times, good times.

    Teddy Grahams cereal went soggy in about 2 minutes flat.

    I had the Play-Doh fun factory.

    Now I want to go dig around and find my Ninendo and play Yo, Noid! for an hour or so.
