I know this is sorta of a early 90s thing, but anyone remember the Hyper-color shirts? They were the best! Mine when from purple to pink
I wanted a hyper-colour shirt but sadly, it couldn't be found in the hand-me-downs from my older siblings, so i never experienced the joy of having my armpits turn purple while the rest of my shirt was yellow (or some other variation). I also missed out on Chip & Pepper, but thanks to the generosity of a rich friend of mine, i had the best Vuarnet shirt in town and the only Ralph Lauren Polo jacket in sea foam green.
My biggest joy in high school, and now considered one of my biggest shames, was my knee-length, acid-wash jean jacket that i saved up my babysitting money for for what seemed like forever! Eventually someone clued me in to the fact that it was hideous at that length and much to my mother's chagrin i hacked it off at the waist and wore it as a short coat for a while.
Someone mentioned a-ha
, I was obsessed with their first cd. I would listen to it constantly! Hunting High and Low was one of my favourite songs back then.
As for the Atari, my uncle gave us a 2600 with about a million games when he bought the 5200 for his kids and it blew up our tv. Wait though, there was a silver lining...my dad finally broke down and bought a colour tv after the black and white blew up, and then, since we didn't have cable and we had this bright, shiny new colour unit, he actually bought cable! Oh joy! It was the beginning of a long love affair with American TV.
