I’m so old, I remember [insert movie- or pop culture-related ephemera]…


Inspired by this tweet by Atrios over the weekend:


let us take a walk down movie memory lane and enjoy some pop-culture nostalgia.

I’m so old, I remember… and insert your own movie- or pop culture-related ephemera.

I’m so old, I remember when you’d get scowled at by the Blockbuster clerk if you hadn’t rewound a video you were returning… although the flip side of that is that if you discovered on the rental racks a video you wanted to rent that hadn’t been rewound, they would do it for you with the little rewind-only gizmo they kept behind the counter.

Of course, this means I also remember when movies you watched at home had to be rewound and fast-forwarded in an analog fashion: no skipping around from chapter to chapter, or instantly to a particular timecode.
