Sometimes I miss the 80’s.
Oh Heather heather… I miss u.
Hmm miss this rollerskating outfits as well although to be honest, this was never an outfit in my small little Swedish town. 😢
And do not miss this dance outfit.
But of course I miss the California girls a la 80’s.
And lastly… I did own this watch and for a brief minute I was the coolest kid in town.. 😆
But then I had to destroy it all by getting a Miami Více suit as Don Johnson with matching fucking sneakers. Omg that was dreadful outfit and the photos of me are deeply hidden in a vault. 😆
But I like the below Miami Více photo way better but just not on me 😆😂
… got my girl some new lingerie, not this one though. Well that was worth seeing on her for all of 10 seconds before it was removed quickly. 🙂
… found a box of my old vinyls, 90% ZZ TOP (am a zz top collector) and Heavy metal but also this one. wtf young me?!? Limahl; really. My mind must have blocked out this purchase 🙂
… and introduced my friend to watch Beetlejuice. Yay…
… my supervisor told me that I’m stubborn but I refute that statement.
… reminder to read more Poe for my holiday.
… and another 80s reminder. How frikking cool wasn’t these Casio watches.
And for today need to remember to cook food for my girl when she gets back home instead of reading blogs all day or she will go ballistic on my ass… believe me you don’t mess with a Czech girl 🙂
The purpose of Nostalgiathon is to relive things from your childhood through the eyes of an adult. Since Andy Watches Movies and Cinema Schminema are both movie-focused blogs, we will be covering movies, but books, TV shows, whatever else are all fair game if you’d like to participate.
Nostalgia time for me at least, have just re-played one of my first favourite computer game, Police Quest.
Police Quest is a series of video games produced and published by Sierra On-Line between 1987 and 1993. The original series was composed of four adventure games, the first three of which were designed by former policeman Jim Walls, with the fourth title designed by former LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates.
This was my first game on my dads lovely IBM286. Hot diggity, that thing cost him a fortune back then…
I was enthralled by this game which is an adventure typing game with graphics. A lot of ‘Look’, ‘open door’ ‘close door’ commands being frantically typed by an 10 year old Rincewind. And for you youngster out there, no internet at hand for any hints so if you got stuck, you were royally screwed. The only thing that helped my sanity was an hotline phone to a gamer I found from an article in Pc World, that poor sod helped me out through some tough times.
Playing it again, I am really surprised that I finished this game. But back then I was used to the DOS commands which I’m not anymore so trying to find the correct wording takes time to get back in your head. Had lot of error commands ‘you can’t do that with nightstick’. Aaargh, if I had a nightstick nearby my poor computer would be mangled.
The graphic is awesome, I have a love for the 8bit pixels graphics. Considering when this was done, it was a super graphics for the PC. Now, not so much. :).One thing about this game I had totally forgot was how often you had to save, forgetting to put the gun in the locker. Open locker, put gun in locker, close locker. Forgetting this and trying to leave the police office and it was Game over. And if your last save game was a long time ago, you hit your head against the wall over and over and don’t get me started on the car chases. You see the city from above and are driving around with this blue block and in pursuit of a red block on tiny tiny streets. A lot of frustration with car crashes and back to Load game.
But in all, playing this game again was loads of fun and will now try my hands on the first Leisure Suit Larry game which is more in style with my blog, it’s about an washed out salesman who’s main purpose in life is to get lucky… Awesome game…

[tweetmeme source="erotixx" only_single=false]"Wicked Game" is a 1989 song by Chris Isaak from his third studio album Heart Shaped World. Despite being released as a single in 1989, it didn’t become a hit until it was later featured in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart. Lee Chesnut, an Atlanta radio station music director who was obsessed with David Lynch films, began playing the song and it quickly became a nationwide top ten hit in January 1991, reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the only hit song of his career in the U.S.
I just loved this video when it came out, the song was awesome and of course having a gorgeous danish supermodel so helps the video.
The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I knew somebody like you.

and as an encore which I didn’t even realised when I blogged the Agent Provocateurs photoshot, a still beautiful Helene Christensen as the Pirate Queen.
and for the girls, some Chris Isaak:
