Gas was $.85 a gallon



It was socially acceptable to wear these in public.



Slap bracelets were cool until they disappeared after becoming a cutting hazard.



Let's hear about your childhood / glory days memories.

I remember in the 70's among my friends Track Suits and Ankh Pendents were "cool." Couldn't remember why until last week when I watched the movie Logan's Run for the first time, since it came out in 76...and I realized that the track suits we wore were pretty similar to the uniforms the Sandmen wore.



And the ankh was the symbol of the runners.

Hmmmm...I guess I must go back a bit further than most of you. I can remember during my freshman year in college I worked part-time at a gas station. On Sundays, the boss would close the repair bays, and all we'd do is pump gas. And the boss made sure we were a cent or two cheaper than any of the closest stations. And we sold gas for...wait for it...




TWENTY-SEVEN CENTS A GALLON! Most cars could fill up for about five bucks!

Remember when they actually had music videos on MTV, and not all that "reality" crap they have on it now?

And I was there...well sort of. I was at the cable tv station I worked at while in High School with my boss the program director, and some of the production and sales people. Our company wasn't actually going to start carrying it for like another week for some reason even though we were set to get it when it came down from day one.

But we had a little party and watched it come down at Midnight.



Pretty cool. Think we watched in awe for only a couple of hours. And I think I went home and rubbed the chicken imagining a threesome with Martha Quinn and Nina Blackwood.

Yeah, I remember the transition. It went from good music videos to BET 3 to Reality TV.
