There are many beautiful pictures of young Elizabeth Taylor, who was perfectly formed for the fashions of the 1950s. But I am not here to talk about her retro style.
Billboard reports that Lenny Kravitz will release his tenth (!) studio album in September, and the first single is "Sex," which sounds like Huey Lewis and the News were synchronizing their Swatches with Phil Collins and Don Henley at a Miami Vice-themed pool party when the boys from INXS walked in. Very 80s.
Are you an adult person struggling with the challenges of explaining to young people how all the things they are obsessed with stemmed from old, shitty things you barely cared about? Then don't watch this video because it will probably give you hives and I don't want to be responsible for your therapy bills.
Wil Wheaton and Chris Hardwick are mad, beautiful geniuses. Which is why they've given us this re-imagined version of the The Walking Dead theme song, 80s style.
Sam is five years old and likes to draw. His mom, Lori, likes '80s music. Here's what happens when Sam draws '80s music.
TGIF! It's time for another edition of Let's Shop. Today we travel back in time to 1983. The weather's turned cool, and after braiding each others' hair, we're going to collapse on the couch and watch Webster, Dallas and Falcon Crest. Better pick a pastel pullover. Which one do you want?
It's Friday night in 1988. You turn on the radio. Taylor Dayne's "Tell It To My Heart" segues into "Need You Tonight" by INXS. Hot. A full night awaits — dinner, dancing — and you've already sprayed yourself in Lou Lou. But what are you going to wear?
Put The Great Gatsby, American Psycho and Gordon Gekko in a blender and you get The Wolf of Wall Street, the new Martin Scorsese picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, a yacht and a bunch of money. At one point Leo addresses the camera, Henry Hill-style, so go ahead and sprinkle a little
Do you miss seeing Lisa Turtle in a crisp white dress shirt and bolo tie paired with a geometric print spandex miniskirt, and Screech in the very same outfit? Then this supercut of all the "ooohs" from Saved By the Bell is a regular walk down memory lane.
Jon Marco is chasing a girl in the cheerful music video for Rhianna, and the object of his affection flees through some of the greatest flicks of the 1980s, from Back to the Future to Tron to Return of the Jedi.
Straight out of the 1986 Sears Christmas Catalog, here are Jem and the Holograms, ready to "rock you into a world of fantasy and fun."
The year is 1983. You've got the scene all set: A roaring fire, some Riunite on ice, Remington Steele playing softly on the Magnavox. A swift check of your Swatch confirms that your beloved will arrive at any moment. Time to change into something a little more comfortable. What'll it be?
The 70s had all the best stuff, and that's just because it had a La Toya Jackson advice column called "Tell it to Toy". This is some magical alternate universe shit, except it's happening within our own. We are truly blessed.
There's nothing worse that getting the uncontrollable urge to listen to "Maneater" and realizing you forgot to load your Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates album onto your phone. Thankfully, as demonstrated in this Buzzfeed video, there's now a service that ensures '80s cheesiness will always be just a phone call…
This scene from a short '80s film (that once appeared on MTV!) highlights the frustrations of a young girl at the computer lab. She, apparently, is what some bully's Dad calls a "techno-dunce." Obviously this leads to the classroom teacher bringing the boy to the principals office; when she shuts the door behind…
A station in Philadelphia has been re-running the '80s teen dance show Dancin' on Air, and this video captured by FourFour blogger (and Pot Psychologist) Rich Juzwiak shows what we're missing by living in a time when head to toe denim is neither encouraged nor acceptable. Sadly, one can no longer purchase suspender…
Back To The Future's Biff. Weird Science's Chet. William Zabka in every movie role he's ever taken. Major motion pictures of the 1980s always seemed to rely on one particular movie trope: bullies. Whether it was James Spader in Pretty in Pink muttering the words "You're a bitch" with intense disdain or Shannen Doherty…
From the very first episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump was my favorite. It could have been her accent, her clothes, her attitude, or more likely, her dog Giggy. But a new and far greater reason for Lisa being my favorite Real Housewife has emerged: Lisa Vanderpump was an 80s music video…
