I've recovered dozens bottles, boxes and packages of cleaning liquids and powders thanks to former Hot Topic employees who also stole and saved the original products, like I did, and most of them found out about my quest because of the DL. Every whiff brings back treasured memories. And they are cutting edge products, very effective to this day. Timeless cleaning supplies, indeed.

I'm not a huge Beatles fan, but I can certainly appreciate their talent and how they were extremely important to pop culture. My parents had all their records, then again, my parents had amazing taste in music. There were pop, rock, jazz and classical music always playing in my household.

The Beatles sure helped change the world of pop and rock music. They also exposed clueless white people to Black American rock music, the Beatles were huge Little Richard and Chuck Berry fans..

The Beatles technically started as a 1960s version of a boy band, they were super talented, excellent songwriters and with the help of the amazing producer George Martin, who was technically the fifth Beatle, they musically progressed over their short time in the music biz. All of their albums are different.

Unlike today's boy bands, which lose their audience, over the years, The Beatles actually gathered a bigger audience and were respected by musicians from many other genres of music, musicians who then recorded their versions of Beatle songs.

The people in this thread saying The Beatles are overrated are completely clueless and it's quite obvious don't know much about any kind of music, let alone pop and rock. The irony, its usually is the people putting down The Beatles, and other bands from that era, who are likely currently listening to bands who copy older rock and pop musicians.

The Beatles opened the floodgates for many other British musicians to get world wide attention. The Beatles also put England on the map as a cool hip place, which it was never considered. Their popularity also helped make British pop culture important. Jimi Hendrix actually went to England to get famous.

Again, typical DL cluelessness. Not surprising at all.

When a former partner of mine died, I arrived home from the hospital that night to find the clock he kept by the side of the bed had stopped at the precise time he died. About a month later, as I came out of the bedroom one morning, he was standing at the end of the hallway, wearing his favorite shirt. He was looking directly at me, with a little smirk that he often had when he was teasing me about something. Then, in an instant, he simply vanished. Now you see him, now you don't.

R132 My dad started showing up in my dreams a while after he died. Not right away though. In my dreams, he sometimes speaks and sometimes just stands there smoking a cigarette. Mostly he wants me to know he is okay. Everything is okay and not to worry so much. I treasure the dreams and they come and go. I hope your dad does the same for you. Be open to it.

Star Wars. Used to buy a lot of Star Wars stuff. Lately I've been getting rid of some of it as I feel like I'm tired of so much "Stuff" but I will watch most Star Wars content that is out there. I still have my action figures and toys from the 1970's. Thought I would have a big house some day with a room to put it all in on display, but alas, here I am at 52 still renting a tiny 400 sq foot house so that's not ever happening. I'm going to sell most of them as some of them are worth $. I've reached the age where I'd rather have the money and more space. It will hurt to let them go, but at some point, one has to. I still remember how excited my grandmother was to give me the Millennium Falcon playset one Christmas. It was the best gift, ever.

Huge Star Wars fan here, R136. I too like 70s and 80s Star Wars figures and toys.

Nice, r137! My figures are all loose because back then, we played with our toys and had no idea they would be worth anything. I have several of the more popular ones though, including Boba Fett, Vader, Obi Wan and Chewbacca. I have what's left of an inflatable lightsaber, a Han Solo blaster from Empire, a sonic landspeeder, the falcon (complete with everything except the box), Dagobah playset, Tie Fighter and some of the old send away stuff like the Yoda backpack for Luke and the oxygen masks from Empire. The send away stuff was always fun to get in the mail. I remember going into Gemco and buying figures for $1. For awhile I was collecting all the Playskool mini figures stuff. Now, I am more inclined to keep my Gentle Giant statues as.
