    Another excellent topic. Here's mine (in no particular order):

    1. I went to the last 3 Texxas Jams (a 12 hour rock fest). All 3 were great, but I had the most fun at the first one. Its the most memorable concert I have ever been to.

    2. The first time I went to California. I haven't seen so much snow or so many mountains in my life. I had a blast on a snowmobile and snowboarding and hiking up Mt. Shasta. It was the best vacation I have taken even to this day.

    3. Halloween, 1986. Me and a bunch of friends went to Sixth Street in Austin (it was my first time there). It was wild, going in and out of club after club. Walking the streets gettin smashed right in front of the police, who were simply watching the barricades so noone tried to drive down the street. I witnessed some of the wildest costumes (and behavior) that night. What a night!

    Those are my picks! Who else has some memorable moments from the 80's?

    Dfo193731! Welcome to 80sxchange.com! Wow, this is an awesome topic! Well, first.. "The Nights We Shared" (I'll always remember) - is that the song I am thinking of? I don't remember the Sprite commercial. You'll have to show us! Is there a video clip somewhere? That would be cool...

    As for me.. Let me think.. Well, this isn't that easy for me. Most of the great things in my life happened in the 90s. Strange as that may seem, it's true.. I don't think I can come up with particular days/nights or times.. So I will leave you with three THINGS that I liked doing in the 80s..

    Going out to night clubs. Back then, it was a lot of fun. The people were friendly, the clothes were nice, and the drinks tasted good. Blue Whale (Blue Hawaiian), Kamikaze, Sex on the Beach, etc...

    Robbing and Stealing! hehe Yes, I was a bad kid once.. I regret doing it, but it was fun while I did it. Going into a 7-11 and grabbing two candy bars, slipping one into my sleeve and putting the other back. This way, it looked like I picked up one, and put it back. All this was done while talking fairly loud so that it looked like we didn't mind attention. We hit the bread trucks, bagels, entenmanns, etc.. I guess it really never ended. Okay, enough of that..

    Brawls! We had gotten into so many brawls that a friend of mine actually started logging them and wrote stories every weekend.. Those were some fun days.. Fights at the bowling alley, Chuck E. Cheeses, on the road. Wherever...

    But I'm nice now.. Really! My ex changed all of that when I was 18 (1989). Thus, all my great times in the 90s...

    The Sprite commercial is the one where there is a couple of old men playing violins in Washington square park NY and I sit down next to them in a leather jacket and a big mohawk like the guy in Rancid. I did the shot in 1983.I have to look to see if I have any old pictures..I've moved so much since then.

    Sal you mad man you! NOTHING is funner then shoplifting. Jk
    I will have think on this one:

    1. When I was little we parked behind the Chuck E Cheese (yes, whether for brawls, automatic self-inflating helium balloon dispensers, or thundering automoton bands that is the place to go), which was located right past the cool "Blade Runner" section of downtown of Philadelphia (giant iron flame belching smoke stacks for the electrical plants). I always wondered what weird controller commanded the Chuck E. Cheese band to play it's music. Not unlike an alien abduction I cannot remember the specific details- but there were was some sort of jutting section of the wall behind there that for some inexplicable reason made me feel as if I had discovered evidence of a great secret...I was 5. My first epiphany maybe. Oh come on! It was Philadelphia for God's sakes, what do you want.
    So I wish I had more time to investigate the area more thoroughly.
    The truth is out there!

    2. When I was in first grade i was sent to the eighth grade classroom for misbehavin' somehow.
    Oh MAN! Well I was terrified at first but when I got there all the kids were like sitting on their desks- including the MALE teacher's desks! (only teachers I had up to that point were angry old women) They were just jabbering and gesturing and there were all these teenage girls there!
    It was the science room I think so there were also frogs and things in aquariums- the students had all these neat-looking notebooks and binders. And the girls were wearing sweaters and teased hair and no one stared or laughed at me like i feared!
    I just sat there in awe and anticipation of the day I would be a teenager. (which is why i was NEVER sent there again )
    It was wonderful! If only school were always like that, I'd be crying when I COULDN'T go. Thats my definition of heaven. Of course in real life school turned out to be a complete effing nightmare no matter what grade hehheh. Excuse me.

    3. My last day in Philadelphia my friends Jeff and Megan threw a going-away party in Megan's basement. There was cake and we played air hockey and it was a complete suprise. If I could have lived that moment over I would have refused to leave my hometown. I would simply not EAT and go on a hunger strike until the money for the house we bought was returned, ect., ect.

    THE ONLY "good" moment in the 90s for me thus far, besides things that are too intriquing to discuss here, was the first time I went to a nudie bar!
    I just went in by myself- paid 5 dollars for a 2 dollar beer, saw some nip and pretty girls, had my head pounded by concert volume rock music and drove home. That was my big wonderful initiation into the world of "lonely common man land"- and at MY expense!
    Oh well.

    I think I remember that commmercial you were in! In fact I thought I had seen it very recently!? In any case I call dibs on the photos!
    Well, I guess that would be selfish. But how cool is that? Let us know if you can them- we have so little!!
    Welcome aboard btw!
