When I return home, my parents take me to see The Main Event, but the air conditioner in the theater is broken, so we drive to another theater to see The Amityville Horror on opening night, which absolutely terrifies me and my reactions embarrass my father. I cajole him into taking me to see Alien a couple months later just before it leaves theaters and no matter how scared I get, I butch it up so he will still take me to see horror movies.

Yes, of course I am. I own nearly all of Rickie Lee's albums, even some of the bootlegs. And I've seen her live a handful of times from 1989 on. But let's not pretend she's ever even mentioned as an influence on everyone from Edie Brickell to Adele. Hell, she had to record her last album via crowdfunding and had to do it in two weeks because of budgetary reasons. She has definitely been forgotten, and it's a real shame.

I'm Mackenzie "Macky" Philips, one of the stars of the hit comedy "One Day At A Time". Even though I'm a gawky and awkward 20 year old, with a face full of acne and rotted teeth, the writers decided to write my character as some kind of 'sexy goddess' which the cutest guys fight over in storylines.

In reality, the only guys fighting over me are my drug dealers on Hollywood and Vine. I've got quite a cocaine habit which has gotten me arrested, and eventually fired from the show in the beginning of 1980.

August 1979. I will be a sophomore in high school. I play football on the varsity team due to my size, but I also play trombone in the marching band. (Don't laugh, there were six football players and eight cheerleaders who also did marching band.) On Friday of the first week of summer practice for both, football in the afternoon, band right after.

I finished band practice, packed my instrument up, then went to the boys locker room to shower and change clothes. All the coaches had left long ago. I walked in on the seniors hazing the underclassmen in the showers by spraying Nair on their crotches then using their hands to rub it in. The guys who popped boners had to squat or sit under the shower and the older boys peed on them.

I quietly skedaddled out of there and went home. I told my big brother what I'd seen (he did not play football) and he squealed to my mom and dad. Apparently this tradition dated back many years, but nobody ever reported it officially.

tl;dr I broke a scandal that resulted in the firing of two coaches/teachers a couple weeks before school started and suspension of all the seniors on the football team for the season.

by Anonymousreply 254January 2, 2023 4:56 AM

Neither of you Nancys is quite correct about Dionne. She didn't "rule the pop charts" in the 1980s like Whitney, but she was in the top tier of pop artists at that time, particularly for her age group. She hosted Solid Gold, which boosted her exposure.

"That's What Friends Are For" was Billboard's No. 1 single of 1986. It was a collaboration billed to Dionne Warwick & Friends but very much considered a Dionne Warwick song. She was prominently featured in "We Are the World," which was the #1 song of 1985, and she did a lot of publicity for it.

And chart performance isn't the only accurate measurement—"Heartbreaker," "Friends..." and "Love Power" played all day, every day, on adult contemporary stations for the whole decade.

R255 she wasn’t like Whitney or even in the same ballpark. She wasn’t top tier for any part of the decade only briefly during Friends chart run. And mostly with adult contemporary audiences. As a 11 year old I was numbed by that shitty song and wished it away by listening to Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam and Madonna. Hosting solid gold was work and exposure but didn’t make her popular among young people in the 80s. So you need mental health help.

I forgot to say that this hostage was being interviewed for the doc.

Wow look at how white the UMASS crowd is in r274's pic. It's weird to look at a group of college students today and see so many white people.

The year 1979'Let the Good Times Roll"

Was freed form foster care(court orders etc), took the standard tests, passed them all. I wanted to graduate with my class. I told 1 person (my buddy Newton-Fig). The Dean allowed me to accept my diploma at the end of the ceremony. My speech was short My closing line was "To the Class of 1979...Let the Good Times Roll!" Congrats, everyone.

I found out later that my buddy Fig had the entire scene filmed on multiple cameras, plus his camera& Polaroid one shot. I saw the film& the polaroid's (I looked like DEATH).

1979 was my first year of entry to an adult book store.

I was 14, but I knew what I wanted...

Gosh, a lot of mature 14 year olds in 1979. I was too scared to do anything like this in 1995. I admire you!
