Yello80s now on Tumblr!

I just recently got into Tumblr and what I mean by that is I moved from the stage of opening up 10 adorable animal pictures every day in my email covertly at work and started the official Yello80s tumblr blog. So do please check us out and comment, comment, comment! But before you do that, check out this rad stuff I sifted through on my lunch break (no really, ON LUNCH BREAK):

Happy Thanksgiving 80s Children Everywhere!

Thanksgiving Day Greetings

Happy Thanksgiving, I hope you all enjoy this uniquely American holiday where we celebrate our collaborate ancestor’s arrival and survival with a little help from their new native friends. It’s a holiday second now to Halloween which is the highest grossing shopping season behind Christmas (sadly we’re not THAT thankful, I know most kids are thankful for the candy loot but I digress) in which we try to cram as much turkey and stuffing in as Kobayashi does hot dogs at Nathan’s. Mothers, wives and grandmothers everywhere in the land compete in the yearly unofficial competition for most creative rehashing of leftovers and the males of the land sit down for a hopefully uninterrupted day of sports after the kids are done screaming over the new balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Listen, the pilgrims came with a dream that got a little busted up too fellas, there’s always next year. Although this is an American holiday (and I’m always reminded by my British husband of how strange it looks from an outsider’s point of view), I’m thankful for the contributions to my 80s childhood from artists around the world and I’ll bet you are too if you ever watched and were a fan of:  The Biskitts, Thundercats, Hello Kitty‘s Furry Tale Theatre, The Little Koala, Babar, The Flying House, Sailor Moon, SuperBook, The Care Bears, the Littles,  Voltron, Speed Racer, Danger Mouse, Bananaman, Postman Pat, Paddington Bear, Shiningtime Station, Super Ted, the Family Ness and countless more. If you’re not celebrating Thanksgiving I hope in your country you have a day to take a moment and just say a little prayer of thanks for your past, your present and your future. And serve up a bowl of Cap’n Crunch with your turkey- 80’s style.
