That too. I played THPS2 much more, great soundtrack on both though!

From what I remember, all of the Tony Hawk games did.

Also, another little bit of nostalgia, in this era of knowing everything there is to know about a band, I still don't know if CKY means Camp Kill Yourself or fuCKYou. And I miss that. Seeing a dude in a movie and you know them from somewhere, and it's not til like 2 months later you're like, "It's fucking Paul Reubens...wait, why was I trying to remember PeeWee Herman???"

Man skateboarding culture in general used to be such a huge part of my identity. I'm a dad in my 30s and haven't skated in a long time and I still dress like a skate rat haha

Ya, I've been thinking about how viral I would have been if I would have had TikTok back then.

Modern kids will never know: There was a technology in the 80's and 90's where you could send a picture to someone's phone number and it would automatically print at their house or place of work!

Especially if at least one of those piece was an all-black sheet of paper.

I used to try sending replies to those spam faxes, but could never connect. It was always busy, or maybe the number just didn't accept incoming calls.

Speaking of old television, when's the last time anyone here had a black and white television? We had a couple in my house (not including portables) until err.. I'm gonna guess 1995?

Our one home TV was color from when I was born. And I want to say 17 inches? Maybe 19? Then one day our neighbor offered to trade it up for a larger one (24 inches I think) because he wanted our smaller one for his garage.

Then my parents kept that TV until the redid their basement and finally bought a (now also obsolete) plasma TV in like... 2012?

So over about 20 years they had two tvs. Both of which are smaller than ONE of my current computer monitors. Tech changes.

It wasn't B&W but I grew up with a 13" in the LR until the late 90s. It had the 12 individual buttons on the right side to change channels and there was no remote.

No greater nostalgia then firing up the old CRT and finding scrambled porn on the channels you shouldn't have even been getting a signal on, then turning it off when you hear foot steps and hoping the image isn't just burned into the TV and it goes cold by the time they get to your door.

Thanks Zenith, you the real MVP

I had a hand-me-down small B&W from my step-mom. What was unique about it, was it was "instant on". It kept everything powered up, so when you turned it on, you didn't have to wait for it to warm up and display the picture. I got it from her in the very early 80's, not sure when it was made.
