Despite my best efforts to blot out certain memories, I do recall things. Here are some of my recollections.
Remember when Charlie Sheen was known for being seemingly talented (Wall Street, Major League, Platoon) and not for being a notorious sleaze?
Remember when I wrongly poo pooed shows like Dexter and Mad Men? I admit when I am wrong, and was on both counts.
Remember when the Utah Jazz were known as one of the most stable, consistent franchises in the league? Not anymore. Bye, Jerry and Deron.
Remember getting those wax tubes filled with that sweet, colored juice in your Easter basket, and then chewing on the flavored wax after you drank the juice? That was some good stuff.
Remember when NPR and PBS and other public broadcasting didn't have to fight to be funded? I'm sick about this and this everyone needs to fire off some calls and emails to the jerks in Washington who want to take away our All Things Considered and Sesame Street.
Remember when there weren't so many brands/types of gum to choose from? I go to the store now and there's so many kinds of gum in the checkout area that I get overwhelmed and need to sit down.
Remember when Saturday Night Live was funny? I do. It isn't now.
