2005-08-27 [Lothuriel]: Hmmm...nope doesn't ring a bell. I will be happy to add it if you like. For some reason, I can't get rid of my password.

2005-08-27 [Lothuriel]: I remember kissyfur....but I still don't ever remember watching bravestarr. I looked at that link but, none of the characters looked familiar to me.

2005-09-22 [Daisy le Fleur]: *Taps toes anxiously* Man..I'm so ready to get started in here!! =)

2005-09-22 [Lothuriel]: LOL..believe it or not, I am almost finished. I just need to work on a couple neon zebra striped banners and I'll be set!!

2006-09-10 [Lothuriel]: This wiki is still undergoing construction! If you have any ideas for sub-wikis...just drop me a line and let me know!

2006-09-10 [Paul Doyle]: Anybody else remember when KISS first took off their makeup (1983)?

2006-09-10 [Lothuriel]: lol yep

2006-09-10 [Daisy le Fleur]: omg that was traumatizing

2006-09-10 [Lothuriel]: Tell me about it =p

2006-09-10 [Kyrinn]: Anyone rememberTHUNDARR The BARBARIAN????  *falls over dead*

2006-09-10 [Kyrinn]: I have GOT to find my pictures from high school lol

2006-09-10 [Lothuriel]: I loved Thundar!!!

2006-09-11 [Lothuriel]: Hey [Paul Doyle], why don't you join us?

2006-09-11 [Perplexity]: Does anyone remember that terrible terrible KISS movie where they were battling some evil scientist type?

2006-09-11 [Paul Doyle]: THUNDARR!!!!!

2006-09-11 [Paul Doyle]: I used to love "KISS meets the Phantom of the Park" because it was so bad it was funny. However, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley (who pretty much control KISS) hate it so much that it's never been re-released since the 1980s, believe. I remember that thing used to be on those "Up All Night" and "Dialing for Dollars" movie showcases, whenever they weren't showing Godzilla marathons, fake Bruce Lee kung-fu movies (you know, the ones with Bruce Le or Bruce Li) and various horrendous camp/'70s Vincent Price horror flicks.

2006-09-11 [Paul Doyle]: Think of KISS's opinion of movie as being similar to George Lucas's opinion of that OTHER late-'70s made-for-tv monstrosity, The Star Wars Holiday Special which was neither entertaining nor funny. Even that animated part which introduced Boba Fett kinda sucked. Anyway, this is the best KISS flick snippet I could find, which sums it up rather well:

2006-09-11 [Paul Doyle]: Sorry, had to add this last one. Unintentionally hilarious dialogue and acting! xD

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFUDIhSHtQM

2006-09-11 [Asryth]: Smurfs... He he. The age old question is "Where did baby smurf come from? All those Male Smurfs and only Smurfette." You do the math...

2006-09-11 [dilandau]: all natural smurfs are all male. smurfette was created by gargamel.  so they would have to have a way to reproduce with only one sex.

2006-09-11 [Lothuriel]: It is sad that we know this....lol!

2006-09-12 [Igorina]: heh...No one remembers Danger Mouse and Count Duckula? ;) those were my favorite 80's cartoons. " Behold the great god..Anubis! " " Oooo Marster Duckuler close your eyes! "

2006-09-12 [Paul Doyle]: The Kids Super Power Hour---does anyone besides me even remotely remember this one? (It was from 1981-2, I think.)

2006-09-12 [Daisy le Fleur]: I wouldnt =/ I was one year old

2006-09-12 [Lothuriel]: Good Lord, I remember Danger Mouse and Super Power Hour...who remembers teh Magical School Bus.

2006-09-12 [CherryBlonde]: i remember the magical school bus.. :) raise your hand if you had an atari *raises hand* haha.. remember pole position, asteroids, centipede and dig dug? hehe ^_^

2006-09-12 [Daisy le Fleur]: wooot! i had a cousin who had an atari hehe, and I thought asteroids was a hard game back then /lmao

2006-09-13 [Lothuriel]: I loved my Atari!! Chopper Command, Frogger, Pac-Man, Pit Fall, Empire STrikes Back....*sighs* ah, the days of pixelated blobs...

2006-09-13 [Asryth]: Got one for ya. This should take some back. The Great SpaceCoaster! I used to watch Nickelodeon when it was only on in the mornings before school. They had things like Gumby, Davey and Goliath, Simon (Yes the one that Mike Myers based his character on... not to mention stole the theme song).

2006-09-13 [Lothuriel]: *squeals like a girlie girl* I loooooveed that show!!!!

2006-09-14 [Paul Doyle]: I used to think "Star Blazers" was really cool. Of course, years later I found out it was really called "Battleship Yamato" and they changed some stuff around (not just the language).

2006-09-14 [Perplexity]: How about "That's Incredible!"? We were watching a good 80s flick last night - Poltergeist. Man that movie still gives me goosebumps! Anyway, they mentioned that tv show heheh

2006-09-15 [Lothuriel]: Chiller Theatre, Airwolf, RipTide, Golden Monkey....I could go on forever....*sighs*

2006-09-15 [Asryth]: You loved which? SpaceCoaster or Simon? Robotech (Macross) was the reason I rushed home from school in the afternoons. Second season stunk but 1st and 3rd rocked.

2006-09-15 [Paul Doyle]: "The A-Team" and "The Dukes of Hazzard"---mandatory, absolutely compulsory watching for me, at age ten. Murdock and B.A. Barackus kicked ass. And this was well before I noticed Daisy Duke, now the only reason why I still sometimes watch re-runs of "Dukes" ;-)

2006-09-15 [Daisy le Fleur]: I actually liked watching "Simon & Simon" thought the blonde was cute

2006-09-16 [Lothuriel]: LOL...same here JEn! Does anyone else remember a short run tv series called The Brass (or Golden) Monkey? It was sort of an Indiana Jones rip off but, I loved it when I was little!

2006-09-16 [Paul Doyle]: Tales From The Gold Monkey. Yep, I remember that one :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_of_the_Gold_Monkey Wow, didn't know Stephen Collins was the Indy clone. I guess there was work for him after Star Trek: The Motion Picture (he was baldy's love interest, Captain Decker).

2006-09-16 [Lothuriel]: WOORT!! yay!!!

2006-09-28 [Lady of Lore]: lol! that's funny! Cool way of putting it. ^__^

2006-09-28 [Lothuriel]: LOL...I thought you might like it.

2006-09-28 [Lady of Lore]: ^__^ i like your hit list entry too, it's a good idea.

2006-09-28 [Lothuriel]: Oh, thank you very much!

2006-09-28 [Lady of Lore]: He reminds me of a creepy janitor i saw yesterday coming out of one of my late night classes (shiver) lol

2006-09-28 [Lothuriel]: ooh, really? That is creepy!!! I thought yours was really cute. it reminded me of a thing I used to think when I was little. I thought there was some kind of creature in my mom's garbage disposal that would eat our scraps, lol...

2006-09-28 [Lady of Lore]: lol, Me too! That's why i drew him the way i did ^__^. Yeah, the janitor looked really creepy and had hair and a sort of horsish face....maybe it was him....:P

2006-09-28 [Lothuriel]: *shivers* Good gravy, let's hope not!

2006-10-01 [Lady of Lore]: lol, I lost so I get to make the competition ^^

2006-10-01 [Lothuriel]: This is true!! Have at it! If you need any help, let me know and I will do all I can!

2006-10-01 [Lady of Lore]: Hee hee...do you really want to see what I've created? (does the mad scientist laugh) ^_^

2006-10-01 [Lothuriel]: Yes, yes I do!!!

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: I need the password to post the link tothe contest....

2006-10-06 [Lothuriel]: Sorry, I thought I gave it to you...I will send it to you right now.

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: thnaks ^^

2006-10-06 [Lothuriel]: hehe...thank you for making such an awesome contest!!!

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: welcome ^^ its only fair since you won the other contest...

2006-11-10 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I can't believe it. I just simply cannot believe it. I never thought that I would ever relive anything from the '80's and here I find this wiki and now I'm feeling like totally tubular all over again. Gawd, gag me with a spoon. *bounces head off of shoulder pads*

2006-11-10 [Asryth]: Did anyone see the ridiculously silly, but thoroughly nostalgic VH1 movie Totally Awesome? It was pretty goofy, but I couldn't help but laugh at all the movie references.

2006-11-10 [Lady of Lore]: Lol, no I haven't seen it but it sounds funny. Lol Ir-Iddyn, that's totally sweet dude! (Dances around to the Bangles wearing a huge belt, big clip on earings, and tossing poofy hair)

2006-12-15 [Dark Side of the Moon]: oh...mah...gawd...

2007-01-22 [Paul Doyle]: Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. There ya go. I just had to get that out of my system. It screams "1980s" more than most 1980s. Well, maybe not as much as Red Dawn and Rocky IV, but I think y'all get the general idea :P

2007-01-22 [Dark Side of the Moon]: heh heh! Anytime I hear "1980's" the first thing that comes to mind is "The Breakfast Club" or "Revenge of the Nerds".

2007-01-22 [Lothuriel]: The Breakfast Club is most favorite movie EVER!!!

2007-01-23 [Lady of Lore]: Bearkfast Club! (Total Molly Ringwold(sp?) fan ^_^)
Bill and Ted's Axcellent Adventure....Manniquien....Better Off Dead.... (I think these were 80's....)

2007-01-23 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Oh I so wanted to be Molly Ringwald: cute, cool hair, pretty complexion. How about War Games with Ally Sheedy and Matthew Broderick? Or Tron? Remember how "high tech" that movie was when it was made? Who will admit to actually seeing it even once? *raises hand feebly* <img:stuff/sutN.gif>

2007-01-23 [Lady of Lore]: <img:44166_1164144892.gif> raises hand as well

2007-01-23 [Lothuriel]: <img:stuff/sutN.gif>

2007-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: Other than the real-world sequences being hopelessly dorky, "Tron" kicked major tushie. I like it how they made MCP look like Kool-Aid Dude From Hell. I've seen "Tron" at least ten times.

2007-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: The only thing I hate about "The Breakfast Club" is how they made the weird chick "normal" at the end, in order to Conform and thereby be Popular. Yuck.

2007-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: "Weekend at Bernie's".

2007-01-24 [Lady of Lore]: Lol, isn't that the one where Bernie orsome guy is dead and the two other guys pretend like he's alive?

2007-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: That's the one. The sequel, unfortunately, stiffed.

2007-01-24 [Dark Side of the Moon]: *ba-doom chi!* Bad joke...

I liked the all of the special effects in Tron and have seen it about ten times also. I really liked how they made the characters look like silent film actors in glowing suits. But you're right [Paul Doyle], the real-world scenes were dorky. You have to remember in "The Breakfast Club" that the weird chick, even though she was made up "normal and pretty" at the end of the movie, still had a case of chronic dandruff. I'm sure she wasn't the jock's girlfriend for very long. <img:stuff/shadN-gif.gif>

2007-01-25 [Lady of Lore]: Lol, I just love the lines "Does Barry Manalow know you raided his wardrobe?"
and doesn't the dean say "Grab some wood!"
^_^ It's been a while since I've seen the movie....definatly dancing on the banister in the library is cool ^^ as is climbing through the ceiling...

2007-01-25 [Lothuriel]: *sighs* Hush your mouth [Dark Side of the Moon]!! *puts fingers in her ears and sings* la ala alalala lalala la la ala! I can't hear you! llala la lalaa lal laa....

2007-01-25 [Dark Side of the Moon]: *lol!*

2007-01-25 [Lothuriel]: <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2007-01-28 [Malnu]: Yea!! added my site linked above... Thanks...Maybe I'll get some peeps to do some drawing soon. Creativity people...

2007-01-28 [Lothuriel]: <img:44166_1164218094.gif>

2007-02-15 [Paul Doyle]: Condensed slice of good-quality '80s entertainment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye-74Z1pY9g . . . and if that was possibly the zenith then this would quite likely be the nadir: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5LX16zia2k

2007-02-15 [Paul Doyle]: And just to be fair . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VY_dpw2htUE Notice how Frank Zappa'a son, Dweezil, is playing guitar and seemingly wondering what the hell he is doing in this video.
