Remember when something was cool that’s not cool anymore?An afro that spread like a wild forest fire. What about the mullet hairstyle. Cornrows anyone? You went out, not back to school for the study group, but going to an arcade and playing pac-man for 2 hours. Endless nights turning the sides of the Rubik’s cube, even in bed on a school night. Under the covers you’de be a secret scientest. Did you wear parachute pants? Were you siked out when you bought a pager and got your first page? You clipped that sucker to your belt, and go for sake that would never come off. You cruised the neighborhood in your Gremlin? Ok, let’s take a peek in that closet of yours. Do you still have bell-bottom pants hanging in there? When you go through your t-shirt drawer, do you still own an assortment of colored izod shirts? When you go out, do you still cuff your pants, as many of us did back in the 1980’s? Let’s go back in time a bit. Now we were all part of these cultural fads at some point. Wearing what seemed cool and in fashionable at the time, now seems a bit weird. But would we really still wear this now? How about learning a bit of the history about something that used to be cool? Did you ever wonder when and where the lava lamp was invented or what years the mullet style was in fashion? Did you think about when the cassette tapes were popular, and then lost interest or it’s market due to the cd? “It Used To Be Cool” is the place to remember, smile and share ideas on styles, fashion, cars, games, toys and everything that used to be cool, going as far back as the 11970’s … and may be again one day! If you’re embarrassed about an old style or just want to discuss your likes or dislikes, this unique online community, may be the only one out there where you can share these ideas. Whether you’re interested in a laugh or just learning the history of something. A place to share with others and learn interesting fun facts and history on things that were once in style. I welcome your comments and ideas on making this site a fun and interactive experience for everyone. I will be updating the site often, so please come back and visit in the upcoming weeks … Thank You and See You Soon!
