If you're on Facebook, we have a fan page that often has some fun discussions.
And we update our blog, Genxtinct.com, daily with retro items about the 1970s and 1980s, from news to random memories. A few recent favorites:
--Kool-Aid Man...OH YEAH! He had an Intellivision game? OH NO!
--Tough times for Gary Coleman and Leif Garrett. How we wanted to be them when we were kids! Richard Cory syndrome, anyone?
--Awesome clip from The Carpenters variety show. So many, many times I've wished I could go back and somehow save Karen Carpenter from anorexia. Like that's even possible.
--Giggles Cookies! Look at the box and the commercial! Does no one but me even remember these puppies? Man, I thought we'd get some comments on this post but perhaps I am the only one who ever ate these.
--Weird movie-theater snacks from around the world. (Japan wins!) I really thought this might spark a fun discussion about what your parents let you eat when you first started going to movies as a kid. But not. Maybe I was the only one who didn't even realize eating in theaters was a real option?
