The topic title is confusing so I'll try to explain it here. I was born in 1986 but enjoy games such as Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong etc. games that were just coming out or were out when I was at a young age. I also enjoy movies such as Bambi from the 60's and yes I even enjoyed It's a Wonderful Life and King Kong two B&W movies. On the Comic Book front I've just ordered Watchmen (something from 86/87) and A Killing Joke (88). So I was curious has anyone bought stuff from there childhood or liked stuff from when your parents were younger etc. (I hope my explanation was good enough sorry fellow WP readers)

I grew up in the nineties and most of my music collection are eighties and nineties records. Modern music doesn't do it to me somehow.

I also still enjoy most video games I played as a child :)

In fact I wish I were 10 years older so that I were a teenager during the eighties, the golden era of music.

I like all sorts of movies, music, fashion, and design from the 1980s. I think it would have been a cool time to grow up, I hate all of that stuff from this decade.

Uh Bambi came out in the 1940's.



I like Bewtiched, The Brady Bunch, I Love Lucy. I used to watch all those shows when they were on TV. I don't see them on TV anymore. I also have Atari games on PS1. I also love oldie music.

I love the 80's as you may already know from my name :) . I love the cheesiness, the hip hop b-boy fashion, the music (I love how synths and hard hitting snares sounded back then) and the fact that things were simpler back then. I also loved the hip hop back then, when you didn't have to be hard to sell records. I'm also into the 70's as well.

Sorry you are right Bambi was the 40's LOL! Glad to know I'm not the only one. I agree though on older cartoons being better. :-) Yogi Bear,Flintstones etc. and I like Pink Panther among many others. :-)

Born in the mid-70s... I like music ranging from 8-200 years older. I like 50s/60s art glass, early 20th century plastics (Bakelite), 1930s automotive and architectural stylings... and the list goes on and on.

I like things from the 1950s and 1960s, and some things from the 1980s.
