@Medusax,
Yeah. You have a lot more stamina when you are younger.

I don't know of too many young people having to take energy supplements to keep themselves awake.

A quality New York Times or Wall Street Journal....a quality paper of any sort actually.

Newspapers were awesome!

That's why we had things like "We Are The World":

And the Stop the Violence Movement:

out of which came the song "Self-Destruction":



Cop brutality was still a thing back in the '80s and '90s which is why these songs were produced:

Steve Harvey talked about Black-on-Black crime when he was hosting Showtime at the Apollo back in the '90s.

There were also a handful of anti-drug and anti-smoking ads on TV aimed at children and teens back in the '80s and '90s.

You also had "Just Say No":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_Say_No

and "Winners Don't Use Drugs":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winners_Don%27t_Use_Drugs

Yes, people were suffering in the '80s and '90s.

I kind of miss how popular tabloid mags were back in the '80s and '90s. You don't even see any advertised on TV anymore.

There are/were a handful of them- National Enquirer, Globe, National Examiner, Star, Sun, Globe, etc.

National Enquirer is/was probably the most famous of them- their catchphrase used to be "Enquiring minds want to know".

I am guessing tabloid mags aren't as popular as they used to be. These days people can read up about celeb gossip online or watch shows like Wendy Williams or TMZ.

I kind of miss radio shows. I miss listening to the radio. Fortunately some people uploaded videos of clips from radio shows on YouTube.

I miss how big certain radio stations were back in the day. I miss seeing ads like this for 1010 WINS:

FIXED.

Harvey said at the time, and I am paraphrasing, that African Americans didn't have to worry about cops killing and shooting them, African Americans were doing that to themselves.

I remember when Harvey said that.

This is why Christians need to be praying for the cops.

As you could see from that old music video from the '80s I posted a link to that Whites are/were subject to cop brutality too. In fact, Whites and African Americans and OTHER people of color- Asians, Hispanics/Latinos, etc. have/had been subject to cop brutality. It's just that the media doesn't give incidents that don't involve African Americans that much attention, which is biased and not very fair.

They don't talk about these incidents on TV, as far as I know. I don't know if they ever did or do on radio. I had to look this stuff up online before I could find out about it.

I may have already said this, but I do kind of miss how simpler life in the '80s and '90s used to be.

You have to memorize and keep up with DOZENS of usernames and passwords for sites online just so you can use them and function. Which can be a bit maddening or annoying at times, especially if you had forgotten any online passwords, but I have gotten used to that.

In this day and age you HAVE to know how to use the Internet, or how to use computers at least. It's a necessity.

The only cartoons shown on broadcast TV now are edutainment ones on Saturday morning, and whatever edutainment ones they show on PBS.



That's wrong. They still show adult primetime cartoon sitcoms like Family Guy, American Dad and The Simpsons on broadcast TV.

@Sturgis,
They used to show The Cleveland Show on broadcast TV.

I stopped watching The Simpsons and Family Guy and American Dad for religious reasons.

They've mocked God, Christianity and the Bible on these shows way too many times.

The Cleveland Show did that too.

I kind of miss BREAKDANCING. Breakdancing originated back in the '70s and was popular throughout the '80s and '90s:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakdancing

I don't know too much about breakdancing, but I know kids were doing it back in the '80s and '90s.

From the '80s for example:



From the '90s:




You also had breakdancing movies- films like Wild Style, Flashdance, Breakin', Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, Delivery Boys, Krush Groove, and Beat Street.

You also had breakdancing songs like this:



As far as I know they don't make songs like this anymore.

Girls being sexy being cool, for instance Flashdance:

Today they are condemned for the imaginary crime of facilitating toxic masculinity!

The following video contains footage from the classic '80s movie Beat Street:



This video should give any youngsters reading this thread an idea of what breakdancing was like.

It was big back then.

Not to spoil too much- I am still trying to figure out how that kid performed that visual stunt towards the end of the video.

Here's another example of breakdancing from the '90s:

Flashdance was R-rated. What did you expect from an R-rated movie?

These days, people don't really condemn females for "twerking"- that's a big thing now.

Please elaborate on what you mean by "facilitating toxic masculinity". Are you talking about being lesbians?

For decades, Joan Jett and Blondie were encouraging young women to become lesbians.

I used to like the young Jett, back in the '80s, before I found out she was gay.

I kind of miss roller skating. When I was little there was a local roller rink my family and I went to. I recall skating in the rink and seeing music videos being projected on a giant film screen in it.

Roller skating was replaced with rollerblading. I haven't seen or heard of anyone rollerblading in years.

You are as lost as you ever were...that is considered inciting toxic masculinity now...betrayal of the SisterHood!

Women are to not raise the blood of males we are told.... the Muslims with their Burka's and Hijabs always had the right idea....we in the West were just too ignorant to know!

Freedom Veils, that is what Gad Saad calls the muslim garb....and according to the corrupt failed American Feminsts he/she/whatever has it it exactly right!

Learn your place motherfuckers, your betters have told you how you should be thinking in no uncertain terms! , if you have failed to conform to this point then you have failed to measure up!

Sorry for that last post, it should have been an edit, but I am so completely toasted now!

It is all about me now, I am too close to death to care about what inferior people think.

@hawkeye10,
You lost me. The young lady who starred in Flashdance was a bit tomboyish.

That's "inciting toxic masculinity"? She was a STRAIGHT tomboy.
