I'd love to move into a house so i can play my music out loud again.

    My first one back in the early '80s was an old marantz 4240 that i bought at a flea market for $50. I can't believe they made quad tuners when there was so little quad product to play. It was loud enough to blow up my dad's speakers and had better fidelity than the components i plugged into it (a sanyo cassette deck and a 10-band realistic graphic equalizer).

    Don't laugh; i was never an audiophile, just a music fan...
    hey jerry,that thing is beautiful,i'm getting misty over here.

    Yeah, it more than served the purpose. Remember when you could knock on a neighbor's door to ask them to turn the music down if it was too loud without being shot? When did talking to people without kissing their butts about your concerns become disrespectful?

    I don't know man,but at some point it all went to hell...remember when you could compliment a lady on her appearance without her sueing you for sexual harrassment?

    I had that problem with this Puerto Rican chick (yeah I said chick! LOL!) that lived downstairs from me. I did not play my stereo for nearly 4 years to avoid committing a homicide. LOL!!!

    My favorite Hai Karate commercial was the one of the diving out of the plane and the women parachuting right behind him LOL

    Here's one that if you are over 40 yrs old you should remember:


  16. #216
    This one is like a companion commercial to the Hai Karate ones LOL! I know you guys remember this product. (Madison Ave. was cheesy in those days.)

    What about the commercial in which a French Foreign Legionnaire says to his colleague (in a French accented English), "You left your family defenceless??? !!! Get off my sand dune!!!" I don't even remember the product. Was it an antiperspirent?

    Iron Eyes Cody. Interesting that a Native American, from a plains tribe, ended up with the same family name of Buffalo Bill Cody, who, personally, killed thousands of bison, which was much of the sustenance for the plains tribes. That's similar in negative irony to slaves taking on the family names of their masters.

  21. #221
    Hey robb,according to iron eyes,he hated that commercial.

  22. #222
    Yeah, but ol' Iron Eyes wasn't actually a Native American. He was actually Oscar de Corti, the son of Italian immigrants. He moved to Hollywood back when cowboy movies became popular and changed his identity, much like Rachel Dolezal recently did when she became "Black". Iron Eyes' story is truly interesting. If you want to read it, I provided a link.

    From my perspective, those good old days had:

    unchecked racism
    worse misogyny
    cigarette smoking anywhere one wanted to light up
    more trans-fats in foods

    I was referring to the specific points you selected from my post.

    Remember when you would[cut]church and hang out with your buddies and spend that dime your mom gave you to put in the basket.hehehehehe?

    Remember when arr&bee spelled his name "arrr&bee"?

    Historians point out that he had considered going with " arrr&beee" at one time but decided it was just too Dionne "Warwicke".

    I remember spending it in the basement of the church on cupcakes and other sweets. My Dad tore me up when he'd find out! LOL!

    unchecked racism - We still have issues with this one, in my opinion. It's actually cool to display it thanks to Faux News and the current iteration of the conservative movement.
    worse misogyny - With so many men having multiple babies by multiple women and women still being limited in job opportunities, I'd argue it's worse than ever.
    cigarette smoking anywhere one wanted to light up - Thank God for this one!
    more trans-fats in foods - We still have 30% of the population who are obese. There are still way too many foods that are fried or made with high fructose corn syrup.
    We haven't cleared all of these hurdles (from my perspective, anyway).

    Does anybody remember galoshes? My mom would wrap my shoes in newspaper (for some reason; never found out why) and then take five minutes to manipulate my feet into my galoshes. It only took me ten seconds to do it myself when it was the end of the school day (minus the newpaper).

    Both of my grandmothers had passed on long before I was born, but I am 100% sure that neither one of them were bible-thumpers. One was a schoolteacher, though.

    But, those were the ones you wanted because you knew (or the rumor was) that they "put out".

    My aunt's neighbor thought that any woman appearing on television in a sleeves dress was a hussy. LOL!
