L.A. Law

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Remember LA Law? I have distinct memories of LA Law being regarded as progressive for having a mentally handicapped (aka retarded) character on the show. But I think the actor was of normal intelligence, so it wasn’t authentico like Corky.

Definitely up to 88…

The Power Glove

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

The Power Glove was so super awesome in the late 80′s/early 90′s. (I mean just look at this guy)

But my friend actually got a Power Glove and it was a big let down. It didn’t really work that well and all you could play was one boring game where you bounced a ball around.

Check out a power glove commercial

Slap Bracelets

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Slap bracelets were so cool when I was a kid. That is until schools banned them for killing people. It had something to do with the super-awesome slap action, which could cut kids’ wrists (sissies).

I took apart one of my slap bracelets once, and it was just a tape measure in a cloth casing. If kids can’t handle that, I’d chock it up to simple Darwinism.
