"Did you hear? R.E.M. released another album!"
A decade that began on January 1, 1981 and ended on December 31, 1990 by the technical definition of a decade (counting 1-10 instead of counting 0-9, same as 2001 began the millennium). However, the politics, music, fashion, and general culture that defined the 1980s stretched beyond the technical definition. Many see the entire first half of the 1990s as simply a continuation of the 1980s, and the last few years of the 1970s as a precursor to the 1980s. The reason this occured was because the 1970s and 1990s for the most part did not contain as many decade-specific defining cultural traits and were simply interim decades between two major decades (ie: the 1960s, the 1980s, the 2000s). Broadest definitions of the 1980s can typically range from 1976, the year Jimmy Carter was elected, to 1994, the year that the internet became easily accessible to the public.
1. I know the movie "China Moon" was released in 1994, but look at the way everyone's dressed, the music, the type of film used. Anyone who says that it's not a 1980's movie is an elitist.
2. You're telling me that Gary Numan's "Cars" isn't a 1980's song because it was released in 1979? Fuck you.
-Richie Rich is a recording artist and fashion designer.
-Before becoming a fashion designer, Richie Rich once trained under gold medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, later joining the circus. He also recorded two dance club singles, "Magic" and "Collision". Today he is part of the fashion duo known as Heatherette (together with Traver Rains). He has also made cameo appearances in the films One Last Thing... and Party Monster.
-The Club Kids were a group of young clubgoers led by Michael Alig and James St. James in the late 1980s and early 1990s. James St. James is the author of Disco Bloodbath, which is his depiction of the events surrounding the Club Kids and Michael Alig's murder of Angel Melendez. This group was famous for their outrageous costumes and extensive drug use -- in particular, ecstasy, ketamine, and heroin, although preferences ranged. Many of them were assigned names and personas by Alig himself.
-The club kids became an international trend influencing the party scenes all over the world. The Stockholm clubs Vegas, Donnas Delight and Delicious are just a few examples.
-After the Club Kids' rise and fall, many moved on and have not been heard from since. Many others are still active in the New York nightlife scene, including Amanda Lepore, Sophia Lamar, Richie Rich, and Astro Erle.

Jackson is a guitar manufacturer originally owned and operated by Grover Jackson, a partner of Wayne Charvel of Charvel Guitar Repair. It started with the creation of the "Rhoads" V model guitar, originally designed and used by guitarist Randy Rhoads. Grover put his name on the Rhoads rather than the Charvel name because he felt the design was too shocking for Charvel's regular customers. This model inspired Grover to start the Jackson guitar company.citation needed.more...
Wayne Charvel sold his interest in the Charvel name to Grover Jackson on November 10, 1978. The shop was located in Glendora, California (while using a PO Box in neighboring San Dimas) and manufactured guitars in this location from 1979 to 1986, when the Company merged with IMC (International Music Corporation), a Texas based importer of musical instruments. The factory then moved to Ontario, California.
In the Fall of 2002, Fender Musical Instrument Corporation purchased Jackson/Charvel, and operations were moved to the Fender factory in Corona, CA. Fender is now manufacturing guitars that are almost exactly like the original San Dimas Charvels, save for a few details.citation needed Both Jackson and Charvel models are being produced at Corona. This had short term negative consequences, as much of the artists who were on the company's roster list in the 1980s and 1990s left to endorse o...
Generation Y (born between 1980-1994) are also called the Echo-boom generation because their parents are Boomers. This is the last generation to remember the 20th century and the time before the fully digital age. Some grew up with no internet, others remember when dial-up was the big thing, before HDTV, before cell phones were commonplace, when CD players were a must have, when basic cable was luxury and when you went to the video store to rent a VHS and remember the days of Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. The cutoff for Generation Z is not 9/11 as earlier thought, it is the mid 1990s, normally 1994. The last of Generation Y is in high school and no, they do not like Hannah Montana, that is Generation Z. While some of Generation Y is certainly over obsessed with social networking and is very narcissistic, it is still the last generation to remember the pre-Youtube/Facebook/Myspace era and to have connection to the 20th century. Early Yers remember the Cold War, good MTV and all Yers remember when kids TV meant something. Their icons include Michael Jordan, Will Smith and our pin-up girl was Pamela Anderson during the Baywatch days.
When were you born? 1991...ahh, you're Generation Y; remember Sonic for Sega Genesis
That and Super Mario World!
What about you?
You're Generation Z. Do you remember when Yahoo was the #1 search engine?
"Yahoo? It's Google...and why would anyone like CD's?"
good, excellent, tops, superb, large, etc. Etymology: corruption of mince (circa 1980 to mid-1990s).
It was a monce result. That is monce mince.
|7.||satanic ritual abuse|
Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) can be defined as the psychological, sexual, and/or physical assault forced on an unwilling human victim and committed by one or more Satanists according to a prescribed ritual, the primary aim of which is to fulfill the need to worship the Christian devil, Satan.
Whether or not SRA actually exists has been a controversial topic since 1980. Although most people in some US states and Canadian provinces believed during the late 1980s and early 1990s that SRA was widespread, there is a near consensus among investigators at this time that SRA is either nonexistent or occurs at an extremely low and undetectable level.
It is important to realize that the above definition is relatively restrictive. It excludes a number of behaviors which are known to exist:
Abuse by non-Satanic, abusive pedophiles 2 who pretend to be Satanists in order to gain better control of their victims through fear.
Mass murderers by a person who claims to be a Satanist and who tries to use the "Devil made me do it" defense when captured. They are generally found to have little or no knowledge of Satanism.
Abuse and murder by psychotic individuals and psychopaths who are primarily motivated by their mental illness, not by any religious belief system.
Abuse by non-Satanists who engage in behaviors like SRA but are motivated by Christian or other beliefs.
Many cases of False Memory Syndrome involve bizarre and often impossible events, such as in cases of Satanic Ritual Abuse.
