Was the magazine related to the tv show? You may have alluded to it but I’m reading mobile… And all I can think of is the theme song that sounds like elton John’s “Mama can’t buy you love”.

I sure would love to see some back issues of Games and OMNI.

Loved the rundown you gave…

Ps: I usually come here via the tweet you make vs newsreader. Take that how you will 🙂

Dude…You are so vintage, I love it.

3-2-1 Contact Magazine…wow.

By the way, The Electric Company is coming back to PBS.

I loved that show.

Am I the only one who, when I sing that song (usually in my head) I have to add the ‘pshew!’ noise? You know, after the 3…2…1… and before the …contact!

Okay maybe I am…

Agreed with Dave2. Sports Night is awesome.

#6 – that would have been a great performance, if it would have happened.

rant on
#8 – as it turns out, they were about 7 years early. The electric car made it’s appearance in 1996, only to be taken out and shot in the head (GM.. mother fuckers). Maybe by 2012, we’ll have a few more on the road (other than the current Tesla models).

rant off

Wait… the legal voting age ISN’T 12? How the hell do these morons keep getting elected then? (haha)

I find it amazing the things we remember after extended periods of time. THIRTY YEARS? That’s a longgg time for something to be stuck in your noggin! I hope it was worth it :).

whall: The magazine actually came slightly before the show (by a few months). But I think the show was already in production by the time the magazine came out. Our family was an early adopter of both.

And we got Games magazine as well. Games in the ’80s was amazing…

Student Teacher: Yes! I read about that — and, in fact, we rented the Electric Company DVDs for some of the bonus features, and they talked about the new show. It will be on right around the time that Av is ready to watch it… Exciting!

Hilly: Glad I could earworm you. My job here is done. 🙂

Epiphany: You see, I always think of it as more of a “Pzzzzt!” sound….

Dave2: Yes it is — one of my favorite shows of all time. For so many reasons…

Iron Fist: It is depressing. But I’m more anxious about getting my flying car…

MartyMankins: I still have yet to see a Tesla on the road. And I’d love to see the auto industry grow a pair and realize that they can market this car to 90% of Americans. Sheesh…

katherine: Lemme guess – of the way we were?

ms benefit: I’m not sure if they ever were in your part of the country — and you might just be slightly too young for them, anyway… Many of them turned into Hardees (which, in this part of the country, turned into Roy Rogers restaurants and shut down or turned into McDonalds).

Amber: It really was worth it. And I still think that most 12 year olds are smart enough not to vote for Bob Barr.
