    It seems like a different and more hopeful world back then. It makes me want to go to Universal Studios and ride their E.T. ride!! :-D :-D LOL

    Lazlo started the conversation Statue of Liberty in '84 (Happy 4th).

    Happy 4th of July to everyone in the USA.

    Heres a retro video of the celebrations back in '84 when they repaired the Statue of Liberty. This is an iconic '80s moment.

    Heres an article from my blog last year about that event. Restoring Lady Liberty

    And heres this years post: For July 4th: When America Came Together

    June 11, 2017 was the 35th anniversary of E.T. being released. Here are some E.T. oriented commercials from the awesome '80s.

    Here's my fave from Schoolhouse Rock . . .

    Only thing is, since "Pluto, little Pluto" is no longer considered a planet, this is out of date. Very catchy though.

    @tangerine that commercial is a guilty pleasure, but it is funny! LOL

    OK, here's an '80s commercial I love, without any irony . . . its just a cool commercial. Just watching it makes me want to go to the edge of the Grand Canyon and stand there eating chocolate.

    AC Slater- I really need to check out Joysticks. I had not been familiar with it, but if its an '80s flick about video games, I have to see it. The other Jon Gries character that I am familiar with is the peaked-in-high-school former jock in Napoleon Dynamite. But, yeah, Real Genius is so classic '80s to me. Its one of my favorite movies, and it always takes me back to that '80s period, with that '80s style and vibe. It has quite a cult following, too.

    OK, this one goes back to my nerdy '70s childhood, but I've had this running in my head a lot lately. When I'm by myself, I've hummed it too! "You know they're nouns . . . ."

    OK. I'm sure this is a little mean, but where I used to live growing up, this commercial provided endless comic relief. Especially the "I've fawlen, and I cant GET UP!!"

    (In all fairness, this sounds like a good product, and I'm sure its no laughing matter if you need it.)

    This is a commercial from a forgotten off-brand roach spray. But with a rather catchy tune.

    My mom used to love this commercial. She knew the lyrics, and would sometimes sing them and crack up laughing.
