Just Say Yes

This is a Sire records promo photo (technically just a graphic printed on photo paper) for their 1987 Winter CD Sampler. Remember CD’s? Remember Sire? They were sorta cool for a while (Hello! Ramones!) and then not so-cool, trying to distance themselves from punk by promoting New Wave. 1987 was a couple years after signing a distribution deal with Wartner Brothers, which would explain Bugs Bunny. This is sort of a sad, trying-too-hard phase, with Bugs wearing a leather motorcycle jacket and riding skateboard. They made a full color t-shirt of this image too. Interesting that large corporation like Warner Brothers would brave the wrath of Nancy Reagan and mock the Just Say No campaign. Proof positive, once again that skateboarding, and even new wave are a bad influence.

Animalz headphones by Retrak, offering retractable cords, volume limiting, and awesome names like Jam Bunneez. I’m sure the volume limiting has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the headphones. Mom-approved Monkey spotted in Best Buy.

Meanwhile, at the roller rink.

I totally got yelled at by the DJ for walking onto the roller rink with street shoes during the transition, and there were only about 10 people on the rink at the time… Yeah, I’m rebel Dottie. I saw some random Sure-grip International sales materials laying around the ghost-town pro-shop, as well as a Roller […]

Game of Life

0

Classic games as copyrighted properties are bought and sold by companies like anything else. Typically, when a classic game is re-published by a new company, they cut corners in production to make it cheaper, and in worst-case scenarios, they decide to change the rules and mess with basic game play. This is the 2015 edition […]
