Why were the best bits removed? is that cause you were British in the 80's? I don't get it.

Basically yes.

There was so much great music coming from America in the 80s, a lot of those bands were called ''college rock'' because there wasn't a name for it yet. They were coming from all over the place. California had a great punk scene and weird bands like the Chili Peppers and Jane's Addiction. The Seattle scene was already blooming. As well as Minneapolis, they were sorta the ''first'' Seattle in that sense, of course Prince being the superstar from that town, but underneath the surface you had The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum, Babes In Toyland, all from the same town, but most of them never hit the mainstream quite like some of those Seattle bands did, so Minneapolis never became fashionable. R.E.M. was pretty big too, already headlining festivals in Europe in the 80s even though they didn't start scoring massive hits until the 90s.

I was referring to the metal/rock which consisted of Ratt, Dokkon, Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi and Winger.

I actually don't mind a bit of Madge, and Michael Jackson's stuff used to be good until we all discovered he was noncing the whole time!

We made it through a week without a child being murdered.  It's been a while since the town could say that.

Yeah, I really liked it.  I see all the wrong people taking it as his volley against the alphabets though, which is a shame cuz it clearly ain’t.

The best thing about the 80's was how it shaped some of the coolest people on here! 

Nah, J/K its the Ninja Turtles :P TMNT is what makes the 80s cool

What a mess the hurricane made of the Bahamas. So sad. It's scary how we can't do anything about these storms.

My mom has a cousin who lives in West Florida so luckily the storm didn't hit them.

Here in Texas our temps are in the 100's. Can't stand it. Too damn hot! Can't wait for November. By then we should have cooler temps. lol You never know?

Actually there was another little girl who was found dead yesterday after her mother drove off from the father with the little girl in the car seat. They found the little girl dumped in a park. Not sure if the mother is talking? God! I wish copes could beat the truth out of some people.

How can a mother kill her own baby? Was it to spite the father? what madness is this? 

It makes me sick to my stomach. You have to be a real bitch to kill your own child.

There's also a trial ready to begin about a teen who gave birth and buried her baby in the back yard. She's saying the baby was still born. Who knows? She had to keep her pregnancy a secret and they said she had an eating disorder so it's possible. Either way, it's another heartbreaking story.

I loved the 80's. it was a happy decade and we got GNR! :headbang:

Some of the 80's bands weren't that talent, but hey it must have been a good decade for all those guys.

Too many pigeons got in my space on the busy downtown sidewalk. I kinda, gently scooped one out of my way with my foot -for its own safety - but it took flight into a women’s face. 

Cell phones came out. “He kicked that pigeon into my face!!” Is captured on video. 

If it goes viral I hope to at least make it onto a punchline on last week tonight with John Oliver :lol:

@soon but you seem like a really mellow kind of person?! Any video of that wouldn't reflect the Soon we know and love. 

Aww, thanks Gracii. The camera dont lie, though. This is who I am now, I kick pigeons into peoples faces. 

I think I fled before they got much of me on video :facepalm: So... yay? :lol:
