Random Topic of the Week 13 Dec 2015

Postby HyruleBalverine » Sun Dec 13, 2015 11:07 pm

I've been ripping my girlfriend's CDs to my external hard drive and was surprised by a CD that she had in there; the singer was somebody that I listened to as a kid that nobody that I've known since then has ever heard of. It amazed me that she had (and ironically, this was true when she found out that I'd heard of him). In this case, the singer was Tim Noah, who apparently now runs a local theater in the city of Snohomish, Washington.

My question to you is this: what is something from your childhood that you are surprised or amazed when you learn that somebody else knows what it is?

I'm surprised when I talk about shows like H.R Puffnstuff and The Banana Splits show when people know the shows as the usual reaction I get is a blank look or "huh?".

There was a ska band that formed out of my high school in the suburbs of Minneapolis called "Secret Society" - they played local shows, released one self published CD, and were only around for maybe 2 years tops - never "made it".

When I went to college in Madison, Wisconsin - my freshman year in the dorms - my immediate neighbor (a Madison native) was playing the Secret Society CD in his room.

Blew me away.

Can't think of anything like that. Wasn't really into music beyond whatever was on the radio at the time and we lived in the middle of nowhere and only had 2 TV channels consistently - NBC and CBS, so there really wasn't much that I bothered watching. I'm usually the one giving the blank looks, especially when my girlfriend references old Cartoon Network stuff...just never had access to it as a kid and no interest now.

I wasn't able to think of anything as specific as that but I do often experience no one remembering Drop Dead Fred the movie. I loved this as a kid and watched it many times, yet it's never on TV so when someone comes along who understands the Mega***** reference I feel some satisfaction because normally I just seem like a crazy person!

Drop Dead Fred was amazing. Every time I see something with imaginary friends (like the most recent episode of Supernatural) I want to see a Drop Dead Fred reference!
