    Big Johnson t-shirts

    When I was growing up these were all the rage. I was never allowed to own any of course though. I think @jmanz remembers them, does anyone else? Were you ever allowed to own them?

    What was your first vehicle?

    I thought this would be fun to talk about our very first vehicles. I'll start off. My first vehicle was a 48 Chevy truck. I would have to go out before school, pull the choke and get it going to take me and my siter to school in. The second and the first vehicle I purchased with my first loan...

    Your past computers nostalgia stories

    I was talking to @C Pav about past computers this morning. Let's touch on a brief history of what we have gone through. The first PC that I purchased was an IBM computer from RadioShack. I had to take a loadout for it. It cost me about 4 grand. I think it was a 286? I can't be certain. Then I...

    Zune music player

    I just wanted to take a moment to remember an awesome music player for it's time. The Zune. When smartphones came along and new Ipod it just couldn't compete. But I really enjoyed the player. Anyone else remember them? http://www.likecool.com/Gear/MediaPlayer/Zune%202/Zune-2.jpg

    Layaway at shopping stores

    Does anyone else miss the old days of Layaways at stores? They always had a section located normally in the back of the store next to the bathrooms. You could put 10% of the price and they would hold the item for you until you paid it off. I used this a lot as a kid, and there was nothing like...

    The Tandy 1000 computer

    I ran across this video last night while Youtube surfing. The Tandy computer was a big influence in my life and got me started with computers. We never had one growing up, but thanks to a family I knew growing up that were quite well off I was able to experience them. The Commador 64 is still my...

    Memorable gaming nostalgia

    What are your most memorable past gaming moments? I have so many and will post them as I recall them. One very soothing and calming memory is playing SimCity on the SNES.

    The death of the video rental stores

    I am sure a lot of the members here grew up with video rental stores. They were a way of life being a teenager. Every Tuesday, Friday & Saturday nights they were packed. It was part of dating, pick up the girl go wander the isles aimlessly for an hour and pick out something based off the box...

    Classic arcades

    Talking with @C Pav at lunch today about how we miss the classic arcades. Growing up we had a nice arcade in the local mall. You would walk in and the lights would be a little dim and the sounds radiating off the machine were loud and thundering. You could always tell the latest game by the...
