Quote of the Day: Sleepaway Camp

[Angela stands up and makes a sinister bear-like noise, and Paul’s severed head falls from her lap. Susie covers her mouth in horror]
Ronnie: …How can it be?
[Angela is revealed to be male, she’s fully naked and has a bloody knife clutched in her hands]
Ronnie: My god, she’s a boy!

In touch with the ground
I’m on a hunt down after you

She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And her memory is all that is left for you now

Coming Soon…Ghostbusters

Hi Everybody, we are preparing our Ghostbusters episode for the Return to the ’80s podcast. We need your help. Have any of you seen the recent Ghostbusters movie? We would love to hear from you, and get your thoughts on it, whether it be positive or negative. Also, we would love to hear your thoughts on the original Ghostbusters, as well as Ghostbusters II. Did any of you watch the Ghostbusters cartoons? We would love to hear from you. Please email us at Returnto80s@gmail.com.
You can also email us about anything ’80s. We will most likely read your email on the air. And if you haven’t caught the previous episode yet, go ahead and check it out. It is about Sitcom Theme Songs. There is also a Remember That Song and ’80s Trivia on the episode that have not been answered yet (as of the time I am writing this).
Again, you can email us at Returnto80s@gmail.com. Thank you very much!

Tweet of the Day: Walkman Sports

Today’s Tweet id from Flashback Daily (@FlashbackDaily). This one hit home with me because this weekend I was running while listening to my fully charge iPod. The iPod died halfway through my run, because apparently it can’t handle temperatures below 60. This wouldn’t have happened if I had my old trusty Walkman! And yes, I do still have cassettes I could play in it.

You need to confess

Michael’s Girl: Can we get out of here?

Michael: It’s only a movie!

Michael’s Girl: It’s not funny.

Michael: You were scared, weren’t you?

Michael’s Girl: I wasn’t that scared.
