A few “friends” teaching us how to use Windows 95? Well, at least the 90s wanted us to have celebrities toting their know-how all over instructional videos!
Before you come after me with pitchforks, consider the fact that this was a trend in the days before the internet was common, we only really had magazines and television (not YouTube) to guide us on trends, and well, we were sorta dumb enough to fall into this trap.
Only in the 1990s, my friends.
Happy “Day After Thanksgiving,” or as the more modern cool kids call it, “Black Friday.”
I prefer to call it what it is: The Day After Thanksgiving.
Being Thursday and all, it probably should. I hear Friday has the same effect!
Over on Retroist, we love our innovative toys – the more they paved the way to our current technology, the better they were. And if they were awesome shades of pink, purple, turquoise, and black, even better!
After the heavy subject material of my previously read book (Christina Crawford’s biographical story about growing up the daughter of Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest), I figured something lighter (read: no bios or autobiographies) was in order. I did have one book on my “unread” list on Kindle. Of course, it wound up being from my occasional retread of The Baby-Sitters Club.
But hey, no wire hangers and such. That’s a relief!
Well, pick me up, golden hand, it’s Music Monday!
