I don't think that's what KFC stands for...

Someone needs to make a picture of this that has Kanye interrupting him.

Oh, dear God, I'm old.

I wonder if this happens to other people--at some point in your adolescence, time stops. No matter how long something has been, if it's after that cutoff date, it's "new."

For me, this cutoff is around 1985-1988. While I realize Bob Barker let his hair go white almost 25 years ago, I still consider it new. Likewise the Snuggle bear and a bunch of other stuff.

Logically, I know that Aerosmith's "Permanent Vacation" album is 20+ years old, but I don't think of it as being as old now as "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was when I was watching the video for "Angel." Does that make sense to you?

I mention this because at the end of this block of 80s commercials, there's a spot for Suncheros chips from Keebler. For some ungodly reason, I have this jingle embedded in my brain to the point that "pequeños Keebleros" is among the only Spanish I know.

Sad, really.

Patrick Swayze, RIP

While I imagine other folks are sharing clips from "Dirty Dancing," "Donnie Darko," "Red Dawn," "Ghost," or one of a kajillion movies Patrick Swayze made during his too-short lifetime, how many are sharing a clip from "Skatetown USA."
