    If Monday were a Halloween costume, it would win scariest costume contest!

    My aunt had a mood ring. When she was in a good mood it was blue, when she was in a bad mood it left a big red mark on my cousin’s forehead! Tru story!

    Thank God that help was on the way in the form of the punk/new wave revolution that year. For those of us who saw the ’70s to date as more of an endurance test than anything, that movement was answered prayer.

    The sad thing for Garfield is he was debuted in the (late) 70’s, so no doubt he remembers all that.

    Mood rings, scary?? In the 2000’s when I was in primary school, around 7 years old we had ‘secs’ bands bracelets. I can’t say the name here and I definitely can’t say what you had to do if you broke the glittery blue one off another kids arm. I don’t know who came up for this stuff for kids or how they got so wide spread but the horrors of the 2000’s are only just being understood.

    I never got to try a mood ring back then. Maybe I’ll order one on the you-know-what site, they’re pretty cheap. (As for disco, just listen to Daft Punk, it’s the same music.)

    Laser Disks were cool. I still wish I had the original Star Wars trilogy on Laser Disk. It’s the best version you can get if you want the non-digitally edited one. It’s either Laser Disk or VHS, and Laser Disk has better quality.

    “Disco will never die!” ha. Piffle. The only good thing about the 70’s music scene is that it provided a steppingstone for the big hair 80’s. …disco duck, indeed.. humph.

    Laser discs? I get the rest of them, but laser discs are just vintage these days – like vinyl records, but for video (and rarer).

    I worked at Wards t the time. I vaguely recall buying several sand-colored leisure suits for about $10 each.. I now understand why my one big sale came back the next day… The mind-stun wore off.

    Mood rings were earlier 70s. By 1978 they were pretty much ignored and passed off to your younger siblings. Now, pet rocks, 1975 or so, were popular with kids and adults

    The nice part about the 70’s was that it was a more optimistic time.

    Of course, everyone was wrong and things turned out horrible.

    Bell-bottom pants, platform shoes, garish plaid clothing, gigantic ties, collars and lapels were the hideous fashion statements of the 70s. It was mass insanity.

    No, no…not the leisure suits!!! (I actually had one once. Thought it was cool at the time. But that was, you know, in the 1970s). :-) I still have a few laser discs and even the player, but who knows whether they still work.

    What about that earthquake that killed 25,000 people? Personally, I think that’s much scarier. But then again, I wasn’t around at the time for any of that other stuff. Anyway, have a happy day!
