Nasty Nas could not say it better HipHop is dead. Originality lyrics beats is all gone analog all digital now. I Stay stuck in that time with my music.

Was up children of the 80's?

So is it me or is everything from the 80's and 90's being recycled? No more originality remaking toys and cartoons that came out when I was a child. Movies are remakes from TV shows we used to watch why back then.

I bet the real creative ones don't get funding or shut down so the media cycle cyfer continues.

Totally random: but why do the teens at my job think that One Direction and Mindless Behavior the ONLY boys bands to ever exist? Smh, I had to pause and give them a tutorial: The history of Boy Bands 101

Loving this group...the 80's went hard! Everything that came out had such a big influence on me between ALF, GizMo from the GREMLINS, and E.T. I just knew I was going to get myself an alien pet one day. I got my ass WHOOPED like every other day for tearing my SHIRTS because after I received my first mini boom box my first cassette tape was MICHAEL JACKSON's BAD album...WHOSE BAD? And when I wasn't trying to be like Mike I was trying to be PUNKY BrewSTER! Loud and tacky was the way to go. ANd last but not least I LOVED GHOSTBUSTER's! I had the gun, the ghost pack, and the ghost trap! Terrorizing the neighborhood in the wee hours of the morning...Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! "81 BABY IN THE HOUSE!!!
