Today, I ran across a forgotten 1980 journal I kept. So far, I'm resisting the temptation to do it as a blog (see 1974 and 1976) but I am finding some interesting forgotten memories, too.
For example, on Tuesday, May 27th, a Primary Election Day here in Kentucky, I purchased my very first VCR (or VTR as they were briefly known). The ad from Cooper's Furniture said "$999.00! Prices will never be lower!" There went my life savings up to that point.
Took me the rest of the day to get it hooked up. A friend called and I told him what i was doing and he brought over a bootleg copy of STAR WARS on Beta that we watched right there in my living room! Amazing!
Just two days later, he was back, this time with a tape I could only watch when my parents weren't around--DEBBIE DOES DALLAS!
So my first pre-recorded movie ever was STAR WARS and my first porn was DEBBIE!
