Years ago I discovered a marvelous motivational video entitled Mr. T's Be Somebody... Or Be Somebody's Fool (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4610575102642182602#). Today I discovered that this paean to confidence and recouping is available on google videos, at the very link provided above. Why are you still reading this? Click the link and change your life!

And yes, before your ask, this did deserve its own thread.

I remember reading about this (and seeing a number of clips) on Seanbaby's site in the late 90's or so. Good stuff!

instead of progressing directly to nineties nostalgia (as predicted by marx, benjamin, and other commentators) the internet began experiencing nostalgia for having eighties nostalgia. "i just want to experience a feeling besides unceasing economic dread" said one observer.

I have no doubt that it's been cyclically popular on the internet, but I came across it the old-fashioned way: my friend showed me the VHS.

my most recent culture shock was looking up an episode of gamepro tv on youtube and trying to reconcile myself with the 7 year old who wanted to watch that literally all the time
