Kids nowadays should have to experience and endure the dark days that were....
...
...
Dial up internet. 🤦‍♀️
nostalgic in the same way getting your school jabs (followed by a sugar cube!) is nostalgic. Or getting chickpox, or nits 😏
Children don’t know suffering until they experience that moment when SOMEONE PICKS UP THE FECKING LAND LINE PHONE. 😡

-Renting VHS tapes!!
and having to go on a waiting list for that new release before rocking up with your blockbuster card and feeling like a boss walking out with home alone 2 before anyone else, 8 months after it had been in the cinema 😬

-Playing PC games in black and white 🤣
-Saga mega drive (echo the dolphin, sonic)
-Buying magazines!!!
-My little pony. Before they went sassy and bad ass.

Smash Hits with the posters, song lyrics and the occasional free cassette tape.

Yes!
Speaking of Smash Hits...the days when you had to sit through the entire top 10 or weekly releases countdown for the 1 song/video you were interested in seeing. And having to text in to get a song played.
And your favs miming on Top Of The Pops.

Cute thread idea. Seems many of us are a similar age, I identify with so many of these.

Magazines were definitely a big part of my life growing up too. Remember "mizz" which was big on the "cringe" embarrassing moments section? each confession would be awarded a different amount of money( between 1 and 50 quid I think ?) I'm struggling to remember the difference between shout and sugar? I remember thinking I was so grown up when I started reading things like this but at the same time magazines like cosmopolitan and more (?more?) seemed impossiblly adult and sophisticated. I miss devoting that much time to reading magazines as much as books, without the distraction of the Internet and social media. I remember so many things I read in them, such a formulative time of life.

I also miss renting videos and what a big deal it was when a big film finally came out. But every time there was serious excitement going to the shop to choose something. I guess losing that is part of growing up anyway but at the same time we are spoilt with a practically infinite choice of films to stream, nothing is special. Same with things like catching a glimpse of your favourite band or actor on TV. We are just so over saturated now.
