While the teenyboppers were poring over Tiger Beat and Hit Parader, most of us were hunkered down over the Radio Shack catalog, drooling over the 50-in-one kits, LED digital watches, and hi-fi stereos.

Luna City Arcade is our private home arcade. It is housed in a seperate dedicated building, right next to our house. The entire main floor is dedicated entirely to the arcade, so it is 2400 sq ft of wide open arcade space. Vintage posters for '80s movies, toys, and video games line the walls, along with other period kitsch.
Last weekend I put an exhaust fan in the ceiling for my wife's grandfather. After a bunch of hours spent in The Hottest Attic In The Universe, he had a ceiling fan that ducted to the side of his house.
While my brother-in-law and I were fitting the fan in between the joists, we found something under the insulation. What we found was this.

I have noticed over the past few weeks that Wacky Packs are back. They're packs of parody product stickers, inspired by the Fleer Crazy Labels of the 70's. I used to collect em obsessively as a kid, and now I can (and do) again!

uphill both ways, in the snow!
The times they are a' changing. Kids don't get milk from cardboard boxes, it's all plastic. I guess Mr. McGuire had it right.
It did get me thinking about what's different. I know my kids are tired of my ramblings of "back in my day.." Still G.I. Joe isn't nearly as cool as he used to be. And who do the kids look up to these days? Not the heros of my day, that's for sure. (And I loved his toys!)
On the other hand, the new walkman is way better than the one I had. And this year's "must have" toy is pretty cool.
I guess there's no use in lamenting. It turns out that even nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Few things in life give me greater joy than watching old Looney Tunes, specifically Bugs (especially when he sings) and Daffy (especially as Robin Hood.) I also like Foghorn Leghorn and Marvin, but not Taz, except when he said this
Any way you slice it, Looney Tunes are fun!

Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasable for the average home.
