It Used to be Cool But Now I am Embarrassed

On the way home from work I was stuck in traffic and was trying to think about a topic for the blog and here is what I came up with. I have an incomplete list of things that I used to think were cool but am embarrassed about.

1) I used to be disappointed that I couldn’t grow a mullet.
2) Somewhere there is a picture of me dressed like I was Crockett or Tubbs. You pick, it doesn’t matter.
3) It was never cool, but there are a couple of Celine Dion songs that I onced enjoyed.

What things do you want to share?

    80’s hair. I had an assymetrical haircut that was widely admired. I think they put something in the water that affected everyone

    ps- I saw Asia at an concert yesterday. Suffice to say, there were plenty of guys with mullets hanging around.

    I already said too much under the Time Warp post.

    I get the feeling that some people are avoiding answering this thread.

    I used to like shirts with murals on them. And leisure suits.

    You happy? Now I can’t run for office ever again.

    Disco music is AWESOME… mid 70’s to early 80’s had some excellent dance music!
    I DID have a mullet… what WAS I thinking?
    You make me smile, Jack! 🙂

    Lol! The one about the mullet really cracked me up. If you are really dissappointed, maybe you should come to Australia – miraculously a mullet is bound to sprout…lol!

    I’d love to see some pictures.


    I can get behind the first few, but how can you support a Giant. Feh. Next thing you know you’ll tell me that you had a secret Danny Ainge fetish.


    How very shocking. 😉


    I remember the neon thing. Here in LA the day-glo lit up the night.


    I remember that style, the same way that I remember that Dorothy Hamil haircut.

    Two words: stirrup pants.

    Also, neon-colored clothing.

    White ballerina flats.

    A bolo tie worn with an oversized white shirt and the above-mentioned stirrup pants and white ballerina flats.

    And reaching way back to fifth grade here…

    John Denver.

    I STILL like disco music!

    I used to like disco music, narrow 80’s ties, and Barry Bonds. What was I thinking?

    I used to aggressively seek out two-tone shoes while in high school thinking I was cool and dressing like a rock star. I may come back and delete this as it is still embarrassing to even think about.
