Early Command and Conquer Games ( I would spend the entire school holidays playing this game ) Even years after the game was launched.) I am also a huge fan of RTS games to day.

How I missed those guys

Not everyone's cup of tea, Reminds me of the summer 2007 when I was 19 or so not caring about work or politics etc. Just partying Drinking smoking and making love to my GF at the time. This was the year I had seen Celtic Frost on their last tour and the only time I was fortunate enough to see Akercocke. I also watched my dying bride that year as well, and from what I remeber Cradle of Filth were still good.

Interesting website here. All the BBC schedules from the listings in the Radio Times.

An example from Christmas Day 1980 when I was 10. Who says that Christmas TV was better back in the day? The big movie was Airport 1975.

http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/schedules/bb ... 1980-12-25

Boxing Day was just as bad. The big movie was The Towering Inferno. :lol:

football sticker books seem to be making a big comeback for the Euros this year. Went to buy cigs at Tesco's and in front of me were like 3 30 year old blokes who must of bought about 10 packs between them.

Think the last time I actually collected any was around WC '98 :lol:

Thing is, when you were 10 you had to scrape together to get a couple of packs a week at best.

Now we're 30+, we can go to the shop and splash out £20 on the fuckers and fill the book in like, 3 days. Then go on eBay for the rarities.

Just did a count there, my sticker album is 44.5% complete so far. Not bad progress, still haven't got to trade the spares with anyone yet though.


Main reason I probably decided to collect them this year it's the first major competition Northern Ireland have ever qualified for in my lifetime.

lost it's allure now I can just throw money at it, no anticipation left in it. Whereas before it was like you said, pulling together and hoping you got this or that card, now I could just go on ebay or the like and just buy each one.

Yeah you can also order them direct from Panini at 13p a piece up to a max of 50 per order. Going to avoid that til I get to near completion though.

Bloomin' hell!

I was much more interested in the Star Wars cards that was out at the same time though. :D

Yeah football cards and stickers really lost their allure when I got into Pokemon and Magic The Gathering. There didn't seem to be any point collecting trading cards that weren't actually used in a game.

One of the actors there is Roy Thinnes, best known as David Vincent in The Invaders series. The original run was before our time but I remember seeing a repeat of it one day each week after school (it was always the day I had a pork chop for tea). It was quality drama and better than the aliens storyline in The X-Files.
