       Of all the places that are no longer a part of the scene, what do you miss the most? I'm talking about places you frequented.

     Here's mine....



     I spent many a Saturday matinee there, not to mention going at other times, between 1958 and 1965, when it became a porno house. It was only a block and a half from our house, and my mother and her sibs grew up at the Dreamland, too.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Arcades at the mall.
In the 80's I skipped school, took a bus to the mall. That's why my grammar is bad. Yeah, yeah. Twirling

Also... I never had the experience to go to a Drive-In theater as an adult...
I guess there all gone now though, right?

     If there's an open drive-in near you, they'd probably know.

Glad to see the Sardust is still open.

I remember when it opened in 2003 the then general thought was these folks were CRAZY for building a new drive in. Looks like it is continuing to thrive!

I grew up as a military brat in Germany. Pretty much most of the US Army installations we used to frequent are long gone. I miss shopping at the commissary, renting tapes at the video store, picking up the latest Fangoria issue at the book store, or having hot breakfast served at the snack bar/canteen.

When I was a little girl, my mom would somtimes take me to WOOLWORTH'S.  It was a 5 & dime store (precurser to today's Dollar Stores).  Anyway, the place had a small eatery in the middle of the store. It had long counters with the old fashioned round, stool-like seats.  As a treat, I remember my mom would order vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup for the two of us.  Our little outing was very special to me ... something only the two of us shared. The store is long gone and my Mom has been gone almost 15 years now.  But the memory of the place still makes me ... smile.  Smile

I remember Woolworths 5 and 10. We had one in the local mall in N.J. (early 80's) Thumbup

I also remember Clover's, BEST and Jefferson Ward. Smile

There was an island on Cedar Creek Lake where you could find some AMAZING Indian artifacts falling right out of the vertical, 10 foot high cut banks - it was a killer site high water or low.  Then in 1998 they decided to put a couple of million dollar homes on the island, and bulkheaded all the way around to stop erosion - and, to add insult to injury, they dredged an enormous ditch in front of the bulkhead to provide backfill.  Now you can't find anything there.


Now as far as commercial establishments, I miss Ryan's Steakhouse here in Greenville, and Ninja's Japanese Grill.  Both excellent restaurants that closed up way too soon.

Similar to Indy's post, there was this small lake in Mississippi called Tweaky Park, It was open to the public before the gov't took over it for Seal Training. Hatred

Back in the city, there was the local pharmacy called K&B's, which was 10x better than Wrong- I mean Rite-Aid. K&B's was always fully stocked with stuff we needed, but disappeared when Wrong-Aid took over it. Scumbag Wrong-Aid! Hatred Hatred

Also, there was a grocery store that was ran buy a local called...Schwagman's (don't even know if it is right) that had a single phone in the middle of the building  BounceGiggle but was shut down to do some corruption stuff. TongueOut I remember it for having 4 different color toy tractors, I had 3 of them! TeddyR

B-movies dominating late night TV before informercials. Obviously some were lucky enough to have horror hosts as well.

Kayfabe in pro wrestling.

Kids shows with local or national hosts.

News show that were more about actual news, matter of fact impartial just stating the facts, than entertainment.

The channels Scream and Drive-In Classics here in Canada.

Reruns being more predominant on the airwaves than reality TV and game shows.

Arcades and that sense of wonder back when video games first came out.

Maximes in Wigan. They'd been having rock nights there for over 20 years. Nothing but 70s and 80s classic rock, late 80s and early 90s glam and AOR. They stopped running it last year, so it's just a dance/techno club for skinheaded morons to take drugs at now. No more playing air guitar on the smoke filled dance floor next to women in lingerie and blokes with hair down to their feet. Got to see Magnum and Crashdiet there too. There was and now there is, nowhere like it...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
