80s-kid

I didn’t completely dislike this last chapter (it was pretty light hearted and peaceful) but there are so many things I wanted answered, so I’m just rooting for another databook to explain some of the things left pending. Like whether some of my favs are dead or alive :’)

STILL, is Ichigo and Orihime’s kid cute or what. I’ve been doing some babysitting lately, which is pretty much making sure kids don’t get run over or hurt while they’re playing Pokemon Go, so this image kinda stuck in my head. Also really wanted to try to draw Ichigo’s new haircut.

ATTENTION KMART SHOPPERS: 56 HOURS OF MUZAK FROM EARLY 90s KMART

From 1989 to 1993, Mark Davis worked at a K-Mart in Naperville, Illinois.

“When working in a retail store with a looping program, you hear the same songs over and over. And then you hear the same songs when you stop in to get your paycheck. And you hear them when you go to the store to visit friends when off the clock. Whether you initially like a song, artist, or genre or not, it really grows on you after hearing it over and over. That’s what happened to me at the store, and I started liking the songs as they were predictable and helped the day along.”

Besides making a video about it, Mark archived his collection of 56 cassettes here.

A mother and her son just came through my checkout line at work. Now this mother is clearly overwhelmed so I try to distract the kid- he can’t be more than 6 years old. I ask what his name is and he says “I’m Jensen!” and I kind of smile and glance at the mother who glances at me and we share The Look of Mutual Understanding and I wonder if this kid’s father knows his son was named after Jensen Ackles.
