hmm...graduated college (1st degree) in 80. I remember spending most of the decade looking for a decent job. Found wife #1, spent most of my time at home.

At least Star Trek came back then. Liked Max Headroom too, but it was hard to find more than a few episodes..

Britches of Georgetown. Pants that actually fit men whose waists were narrower than their hips.

Interesting tidbit of info on that show. when the cartoon started, John Schneider and Tom Wopat were still on strike and so their counterparts coy and vance were used on the cartoon as well. then when the second season of the cartoon started and tom and john were back on the real show, they were inserted into the animated series.

How the duke boys could be racing around the world when they were on probation (well bo and luke, not coy and vance) is beyond me, lol. Part of their probation according to the series was they couldn't leave hazzard county.


here's a couple other good 80s "car"toons

There were some great TV shows in the 80s.

I was a BIG fan of 'Hill Street Blues'

I also enjoyed 'Tour of Duty' and of course 'MASH' (although the series actually started in the 70s)

Happy memories.

I wouldn't mind going back to those days. Things were so much simpler, back than.

Hey, all.

I'm just young enough that all of this makes me cringe, and just old enough that I can remember it. (work that out...)

did any of yous listen to indie music back then? Man, there was some good music in the early eighties, bands i'm learning about for the first time now.

How about stuff like:

Orange Juice
The Fire Engines
Television
Magazine
Wire
Gang of Four
Sonic Youth

or Minimal Wave bands like:

Young Marble Giants
Moderne

REALLY great stuff. I'd post links but i'm a newbie so I can't (as far as i am aware).

Or, what about avant-garde artists like Laurie Anderson (Big Science era) or Philip Glass (particularly Koyaanisqatsi)

Anyone out there remember/appreciate music like that?

Cheers,

Luke
