I'm of the Lucky Ones - those born at the cusp of the digital age where we were children of the 80s who played outside and performed other "analog" activities, but who also grew up with the internet, vintage gaming, coding, and the birth of mobile tech.
I decided to celebrate my 35th like a proper 80s child - by building a blanket fort and playing board games inside with my fiance. She also gifted me my favorite Fisher Price Little People from the Sesame Street playset - Grover and Roosevelt Franklin! I'll have a blast getting the rest of the band back together in the year ahead.
I also maintain a Retrobox server, stocked with 100 complete kids TV series from the 80s and 90s. We'll have fun tuning in tonight.
Note to self: Compile an archive of wacky 80s and 90s adverts and insert them between the shows for the full nostalgic effect.
