Were you born in the '80's? Did you ever wish you had been?
Ever been arrested for getting into a knock-down, drag-out,
no-holds-barred brawl with another human being over Rumble and Frenzy's
respective color schemes? Do you actually get that reference?
Do artificial catch-phrases like "Totally Outrageous" and "Tubular"
still make your pulse rev up in spite of knowing better? Can you still
remember and identify with the crappy, expensive toy advertisemen--err,
CARTOON SHOWS that made them wildly popular once?
And above all, are you drunk and looking to waste an hour of your life making fun of crappy pop culture?
Then you might consider checking out
http://www.X-Entertainment.com, because you're probably going to love
it. Or hate it. Either way, really. A glorious, ongoing waste of time and energy founded and
maintained by pair of slackers named Matt and Mike deMarco,
X-entertainment is an ongoing blog and display piece showcasing
disposable pop-culture fads of the past, or whatever happened to
interest them at the time, which they--and presumably you, if you're
actually reading this--nevertheless keep a soft place in our hearts
for, right next to the Smurfberry Crunch and the Sharkleberry Fin
Koolaid. Though they actually have lives beyond the net, the intrepid
duo spend their spare time scouring the world--or at least their
particular corner of it--for whatever random crap seemed pointless and
kitschy yet vaguely amusing enough to warrant inclusion and review,
from bad horror movies, to unintentionally funny commercial
advertisements that some brainless ad exec somewhere actually thought
would persuade someone to buy an otherwise forgettable product, to
breakfast cereals which celebrates some long-ago fad, to odd
experiments in snack foods and drink flavors long since forgotten--and
rightly so--by the rest of the sane Western world.
While much of the site seems like an 80's nostalgia site, it is so
much more than that. Since you actually bothered to read this far, go
ahead and visit the site. No, really. I'll still be waiting here when
you get back.
