My buddies and I would practice our "shout out" lines from Rocky Horror Picture Show by playing a live taped cassette of the movie - while we were jogging.

What a bunch of nerds.

My best friend would tape "Mork & Mindy" by putting his portable tape player on top of his TV set. Then we would listen to it the next day after school.

Drama Club Geek, Young Democrats ( Because the granola type girls were cute).....never could be cool and afford the "LaCoste" Alligator shirt...had to go with the cheapo Mervyns knockoff "Le Tigre"....Hey...and how about those AWESOME Bugle Boy skater pants circa..1985-1986...I just loved rolling the cuff up. Hmmm...High School wasn't so much Tiki per say either......That was more of the "Voodoo" period.

I used to go to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm with a cassette recorder, so I could record the rides and listen to them at home. I did this with the film Ghostbusters as well.



Boy - I really really wasn't cool.

I was teased mercilessly about not having a Lacoste shirt like everyone else... so my mom took an old gator off of last year's shirt and sewed it on to a cheap piece of crap. Most likely K-Mart brand.




and yes, Tang still wins

Geez -- I had the fake Op shorts too! And the fake Members Only jacket. And even fake Vans shoes. When I was in High School and Miami Vice was the "in" 80's thing, I had fake Ray Ban sunglasses too. Speaking of Miami Vice, did you know that Crockett drove a fake Ferrari?

My parents made me wear dickies in elementary school (now their cool, but then? DICKies)
and cordoroy pants that would "foosh" when I walked.

I spent my childhood (all the way through highschool) playing D & D in the basement...and painting miniatures.

I was the epitome of cool. so quit your damn whining.

I remember wanting a "Members Only" jacket sooo bad for Christmas, but my parents bought me a knock-off. EVERYONE noticed. I think it was even called "Membership Required" or something really dumb like that.

I also, was not a "cool kid" for the rest of the year.



The knockoffs were called "Club Member" and even worse "Club House". With the same stupid shoulder straps.

Speaking from experience. I wasn't cool then, and I'm not cool now.

I can't remember a single thing that happened in high school. No kidding. The only half-memory I have is of counting 45 joint roaches laying there on the cement walkway beside the main door of our school. Not a single cigarette butt, just 45 fresh roaches.

I was so naive that I didn't even understand the cool factor. Then I started dating a Senior when I was a Sophomore... He was one of the coolest guys in school. Also a drug dealer, which of course I didn't know. Once I was walking to church and a Camaro of other cool guys pulled up beside me and one guy said: "Hey, I heard Steve had some mushrooms!?" I answered, in all seriousness, "What would he be doing with mushrooms, cooking?" They all laughed and drove away. A few months later Steve told me to look under the car seat and there was a huge bag of weed! AKA a lid. And where did I meet this wonderful guy who even had my parents fooled? In the Explorer Scouts.
