(Top 5) Fads I Was Into

(Top 5) Fads I Was Into

by Dave

Our good friend Mickey over Retro Ramblings is running with this kick ass concept about top 5 things to post about weekly and I just wanted to be a part of it. 

Here is our first entry ... Top 5 Fads I Was Into

Let's start with something that looked awesome back in the 80s but well, i have never done again since then. Rolled up jeans. 


Much like most of you, I spent many of hours and quarters at the local arcade. Like the pic below I spent quality time with Karate Champ. Round house kick. Full point white!


I had a library of AD&D books at one time and my house was the meeting point for our weekly game. Geek moment, I actually copied a program code into my Apple IIe to act as a random number generator so we didn't have to use dice.


So this pic is a double shot, I was so completely into Tiffany but the fad that we are looking at is the denim jacket. When did I get rid of that jacket? I want it back!


I was into WWF wrestling in a major way back in the 1980s, Love watching Rowdy Roddy Piper in Piper's Pit. Do you remember his conflict with Cyndi Lauper?
