Before the late 90s those horizontal discolouration stripes in the pleating zone of jeans didn't exist.
What the fuck a 'pleating zone' is
crtr+f 'kerb' http://bit.ly/rcp8bu
here we go
I can't believe the difference in him and jon favreau since Swingers. It's like they exploded.
they're growns up and they're growns up and their growns up
*waves suit jacket around head*
Me fail English? That's unpossible!
But yeah, you're right. Think this could apply to many a person, particularly actors. wot r funneh.
I'm pretty fucking old and I certainly don't remember that. Jog on, Granddad.
...two music festivals a year.
The Reading festival didn't used to be in Leeds.
not TV talent shows.
Were AMAZING for buying new music that you might have heard once or twice on the radio, and nowhere else.
I ask you.
Actually, he's a bit crap, but he does wear incredibly awful jumpers.
Oh hang on...
Also, Craig McLachlan & Check 1–2 were the band Steve Brookstein wishes he was!
and had to put 50p into a slot in order to get it to work.
There was also a similar system for electricity.
It's shit, and has more than once resulted in having to eat/throw out a freezer full of food.
only time a smell has made me physically throw up.
not on the internet.
at Shepton Mallet fête was on of the highlights of my young life
and smoking and drinking on TV talk shows was normal
and they did a build up to the new jingle for weeks, and it was exactly the same. I'll never forget that
But I doubt I'm old enough to remember
and don't call me etc etc..
in Saturday evening gameshows hosted by Noel Edmonds in order to have the glory of pressing the lottery start button.
Lycos? Ask Jeeves? Where are they now?
www.lycos.com and www.askjeeves.com
It didn't last.
Little did we know what they meant by that.
of the glory of the late night channel 5 film genuinely always gives me a smile at work
They score such a low percentage on the viewing share that technically, they rank as zero viewers.
And the taxpayer subsidises this shit.
And I'm happy to subsidise that shit.
And anyway, there is a world of difference between worthy documentaries about neglected playwrights, and a Welsh-language kid's gameshow made in a shed in Pontypool.
and half their shows are kids shows. the soaps and sport do alright. the rest is shite though.
were up to 20 metres long and had to be towed behind the vehicle in a specially designed trailer.
(briefly, but still)
meant inviting them to your house, not dicking around on the internet.
me and meths used to play each other at FIFA 96 on the PC - me on the keyboard, him on the mouse! he actually got shit hot on that mouse.
Sounds like a nightmare. I always used to play Sensible Soccer using the keyboard controls as I found it loads easier than using the joystick.
on Micro Machines 2 by sharing one controller between two players (in the most confusing control scheme imaginable). The cartridge had two extra controller ports built into it to allow this crazy free-for-all.
*something about 'multitaps'*
And Micro Machines was so annoying if you were playing with someone shit, they kept falling off the screen and you'd be dragged back. Gah.
so annoying though, you basically had to memorise the circuit cos of the top down view! I'd be strolling along so nicely and then BAM straight off the edge of the snooker table cos i couldn't see the corner :'(
Balonz aka King of the Back Roads
There was a really good track creation mode too.
the fools on the sponge didn't go to the top edge.
and deliberately missing a turn then braking before you went off the edge. It surprised me how often it worked.
was breaking in front of someone, them going into the back of you and you using the collision speed to zoom off. Inexplicably, we called it the souffle. We also had the cleaver and the brick...
I have too much love for this game. Did anybody play the 3D version on the playstation 1?
i remember being so excited for it, mm in 3d!!
it never quite hit the spot quite like the megadrive version for me
Four player multitaps were pretty much the most heartbreaking thing you could own.
£1.99 videogames. On cassette.
you had to wait for a good 20 minutes for the Teletext listings to scroll through every page.
oh yes. the rollerskating boy band...
Fatboy slim and Bentley Rhytym Ace and Propellerheads.
tuned in on Saturday nights to Noel's House Party to follow the antics of Mr Blobby et al.
I am not ashamed.
was my personal favourite bit
no wings or g-string specials
and you'd have to wait for it to do whatever it was doing
sometimes you'd just sit there
And how great it is.

followed by (or preceeding) an indian film on Channel 4.
Or go to the cinema in the morning, check what time the film was showing at, then sit around in Burger King until then.
Or the newspaper.
The following times are available. Please state the performance you wish to see
...I'm sorry. There appears to be a problem
Welcome! To Showcase Cinemas!
Reading through the brochures and finding places you'd been to before was difficult.
Everyone on the old version of Top Gear laughed when the government showed off their plans for speed cameras and the road signs they would be putting up.
SEGA, once, were the coolest games company in the world.
Encarta '97 was incredible.
we used to pump out much stronger pheromones.
have mobiles to text each other either. so youd have to phone the house phone, praying it was them that answered and not their family.
you had to play them the whole way through or get passwords to get back where you were. you'd be nearly through Super Mario Bros., when you'd have to go down the dentist and when you came back mum had turned it off :(
that was regularly delivered to your house for free.
until after you'd had it printed - and you had to go to a special shop to get this done.
half the people on here have film cameras.
Our Price was the dominant high street record store.
mainly carpet or bed shops
...was the only way to find out the goings on in niche sports around the globe. This was OUR rolling sports news!
...in the Autumn of 1993 Channel 4 dedicated the majority of its evening broadcasting for a number of weeks to the World Chess Championships. Because Nigel Short was playing Gary Kasparov. C. Vorderman presented.
when my parents got divorced they thought I needed to see a therapist. I didn't but he did teach me chess, and I am pretty good so I could beat him.
Henceforth I was much more into chess than the average infant school kid and loved that being on.
Like John Wark style moustaches.
Seriously, they won't believe us...
just out of interest.
Just above shows that, yes!
Snickers bars were called Marathon
Computers came with an LP-ROM drive
And everyone had one massive bill that restricted their use from then on.
You could smoke on the train (and on buses).
People would be outraged if charged two quid for a pint.
Paying bills involved actually going to a bank or post office.
Massive marketing campaign based around Sonic 2 coming out in 1994 (i think it was 1994)
Dexter Fletcher (Gamesmaster)
Ed Tudor-Pole (The Crystal Maze)
but I remember when Qatar was just a faintly ridiculous name for a country on Fifa/Pro Evo/Sensible Soccer.
AND NOW LOOK WHAT'S HAPPENED.
Italian football on a Sunday
Have a look at Viva Brothers new album here.. http://bit.ly/TVBjane
and having a zip drive on your computer was state of the art.
and Lois Lane was played by one of the most beautiful women ever (to my teenage self).
Still a top tune
For fun. Fun!
