Classic Nick Rocks

Hey Y'all,

Well, I’ve been thiking about doing something for a little while now and I think I’m ready now.

Every Saturday I post a “Forever 80’s!” playlist of videos in my brother’s F/B group "Your Childhood Days Remembered” as well as a group we own together called “Our Lives in Music.” So I started thinking that I should start posting those same videos here and call it “Classic Nick Rocks.”

Now I realized that I’m not going to have a fancy entro like the real Nick Rocks, all I have it this screen cap that I’ve added the word “classic” to, but I thought it would be nice to just take a look back at some of the old 80’s videos.

So here’s the short list and sorry that I’m posting it on a Sunday and not on Saturday as I had planned but I’ve been a little sick. I went to be about 6:30pm and woke up when my sister called about 10:30pm so I figured since I was up I’d check my F/B and post these for y’all. Hope you enjoy them.

John Fogerty – Centerfield

Bruce Springsteen – Glory Days

El Debarge – Who’s Johnny?

Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam – Lost In Emotion

In Search of Saturdays

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" a space I’ve designed to help members find those long lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time. 

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list here and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for.

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members. 

A good places to start our searches is iOffer ( ) which, in my opinion, is better than eBay b/c you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else. 

This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally saw them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies – for my private viewing – please contact me at     Also, IF you contact me via email PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Thank you.

Michael Bond: The 10 Things I Never Knew About Paddington

Classic Nick Wednesday - Michael Bond: The 10 Things I Never Knew About Paddington
Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Story Link:

1. I didn't know bears like marmalade.

2. Nor did I know they like cocoa.

3. I didn't know Paddington’s age, so I asked him.

4. He didn't know either. He suggested I telephoned his Aunt Lucy.

5. He didn't tell me she lives in a Home for Retired Bears in Lima. When I eventually reached her she asked me if I knew what time it was in Peru. I didn't know that either. She said it was one o’clock in the morning!

6. When I phoned back at a more reasonable hour and asked how old her nephew was, she said: “There are some things you don’t ask a bear.” and hung up on me.

7. I don’t believe in taking “no” for an answer, and when I tried again, she said: “If there is one thing bears can’t stand it’s people with clipboards asking them how old they are!” and hung up on me again,

8. So I rang back and asked how bears felt about people without a clipboard.

9. She said: “Nobody without one has ever lived to tell the tale. Who wants to know?”

10. I had no idea either, so I gave her your telephone number. I hope you don’t mind!
