Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Otis Fodder:

Granny, yesss. Fantastico!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Otis Fodder:

BC, you are cracking me up here with these songs. I feel like I'm driving with friends from San Diego up to Magic Mountain to go dancing at a nightclub in '86.
Avatar 3:43pm solo mon:

The 80s sound track sound!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Granny, Venice/Santa Monica REALLY changed during the 90s (and not necessarily for the better). I stayed until 2002 and then couldn't take it any longer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon: some folx go way surreal with the hashed eggs, Jason and Adam, for instance

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Otis Fodder:

This rules! Stacey solo and SSQ. Nothing but respect and flashbacks of being young... my god.
Avatar 3:50pm solo mon:

Greg used to serve Stacey Q when he worked at Cocos in Orange County in the 80s he said she was very rude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Otis Fodder:

Oh no, she was one with heart. One heart beating as one.
Avatar 3:51pm solo mon:

I have a 12” of this with an accapella because why? Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Avatar 3:56pm solo mon:

Hi little grrrrl!!! Meowooow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I have very fond memories of this game and yet have never heard this awesome theme song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Lizardner Dave 2:

As we Gen Xers are fond of pointing out, in our day you didn't beat a video game by defeating a "boss". The game simply got faster and more difficult until you died permanently. Just like real life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Lil' Grrrl:

Avatar 3:59pm solo mon:

Granny it should be like a Netflix show. Hippie trauma child
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

solo mon: YES
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I spent a LOT of time in the early 80s playing video games in pizza joints/convenience stores/arcades. They were all hard as balls.
Avatar 4:01pm BC Sterrett:

Only a few minutes away from the archive cut off and you are untethered floating into space. In space does anyone hear you stream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

B.C., I think this might actually be credited to R. Cade and the Video Victims.
Avatar 4:03pm BC Sterrett:
