(A brief explanation of the ensuing madness: this is in response to a new "80s Likeness" meme tagging, originating with Mom-101. Let the ear-scraping eighties vernacular commence!)
Like, I would have to say that in the eighties? My hair most closely resembled the kickin’ fro on the beave magnet in the upper right hand corner. Also, I had a rad pink tie much like the one keeping blondie’s excellent forehead sweat-free and truly outrageous.
The thing that stokes me most about this picture of stellar 80’s local legend “Xciter” (other than all of the righteous plastic streamers) is knowing that, like, my way-cool husband chills out and plays video games with one of these mega-bad poon tamers every Friday night. Their bitchin’ XBox Live secret action hero names? Turbo Pansy and Action Wimp. That is like, so boss.
Another of these gnarly dudes went on to join the choice band “Tuff,” which, as you may remember, scored a bodacious hit with the totally tubular 1991 power ballad “I Hate Kissing You Goodbye.” Plus, they toured with such super wicked bands as Warrant, Britny Fox, The Bullet Boys, Dangerous Toys & Enuff Z’Nuff.
Does it get any more killer than that?
Wow. I have a sudden urge to slip into a Hypercolor sweatshirt and some stirrup pants, crack open a Crystal Pepsi, zone out in front of a few Kate & Allie episodes I taped on Beta, and then organize my Garbage Pail Kids cards and Strawberry Shortcake Miniatures collection. Yeah. That’s the ticket.
Because it’s hammertime, hosers. On a stick.
Props-o-rama to my solid homegirl Gina for the photo and wicked awesome dudette Kristen for the trippendicular challenge. Fer sher.
