  1. Next week, it’s ten years since Avatar: The Last Airbender aired its last episodes. That means you have to talk about it. It’s the law.

  2. I had a Gameboy Camera and Printer and the printer was thermal. I’m pretty sure you could get normal paper and sticky paper. If I were to dig through my boxes I might still have some.

    And Chris forgot about Pacific Rim when referencing Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘fun’ movies post Hellboy 2.

  3. I can’t pretend like I didn’t watch Short Circuit 2 at least 20 times on HBO back in the 90s. My friend and I would constantly constantly yell the “LOS LOCOS KICK YOUR ASS” chant. I don’t know how in this day not only is there not a J5 figure but a gold variant like he has at the end!

  4. Skipping over albums like Beck – Modern Guilt and Melvins – Nude With Boots makes me want to punch every 10 yr old in the world.

  5. One of the things I love about 30 20 10 is how it brings me back to the person I was in the past; be that a 10, a 20, or a 30 year old. And 10 years ago this very day what was I doing? I was building a life-size paper mache giraffe. Let me explain: Frequently me and my friends would go through the usual routine of asking each other, “What do you want to do?” “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” and somehow, and to this day I have no idea how, I got an idea that every time we would have one of those discussion I would say, “Well, we could build a life-size paper mache giraffe! ” My intention was that this would become a running joke and that I would say it for years and years until my friends got so sick of me saying it that we actually did it. And do you know how many times I suggested it before we actually did it? Two. I managed to suggest it two times before we decided to actually do it. It was crazy, it was fun, it was such a memorable achievement that ten years later I look back on it as one of the most vivid memories of my life.

    Pics are here:

    But thank you 30, 20, 10 for helping me remember the cool events of my life.

  6. I’m legit surprised to hear how the 1988 segment played out: both License to Drive and Short Circuit 2 were replayed to death on HBO so I would have thought you’d seen the former! If nothing else, you have to see James Avery’s scene-stealing performance as a DMV instructor:

  7. “Clearly Vancouver”.

    Not to well actually this, but well actually, it’s very clearly 1980s Toronto.

    No greater time capsule out there for the Toronto I grew up near, featuring copious shots of Toronto Eaton Centre, and what used to be my favourite place in the whole wide world, the World’s Biggest Bookstore, and yes, that was it’s actual name. Has since been bulldozed for condos, but sits presently as a deserted lot, making me not want to ever read a book again in protest.
