I'm definitely a child of the '80's. I still have my Pound Puppy and Cabbage Patch doll. I still own a cassette player. I even have a box of mixed tapes I recorded off the radio. Including ones of the Dr. Demento show.
I was also one of those girls who plastered her walls (and ceiling) with cute teenage heart throbs... and monsters from Fangoria magazine. My favorite movie was The Lost Boys. I watched it daily. I knew every line.
I had a huge crush on Corey Haim.
And Corey Feldman.
In my fantasy world, I could have both Coreys.
It's a very good thing it was only fantasy and I grew out of my Coreys phase. They didn't handle fame very well. Just like another one of my crushes at the time: River Phoenix. Rest in peace, guys. (Yes, I know Feldman didn't die, but his career did!)
