Konami Frogger King of the Road T-shirt for Men

Frogger was one of the first video games I played at home on my Atari 800XL computer (in 1984), and so I was thrilled to find this very cool Konami Frogger King of the Road T-shirt, which will allow me to show my appreciation for the game, which is most definitely an 80s classic.

The T-shirt is available in sizes from Small to XX-large. The graphic has a slightly distressed look and features the logo and pixelated frog from the game. It would make a great gift idea for retro gaming fans or anyone who grew-up in the 80s and fondly remembers playing the game. It is also ideal for wearing to 80s or gaming events, conventions, or simply to show your love for the game.

My version of Frogger came on a cartridge, and I actually really miss those ROM cartridge games, as unlike the cassette versions, you didn't have to wait for half an hour for the game to load. Even in 2022, you have a very frustrating wait for many games to download and install, whereas a cartridge game would load almost instantly.

The game was first released as an arcade cabinet in 1981, and it was very simple to play but quite a challenge to master. It was one of the few games that I did actually master, and it was also incredibly addictive - crossing the road has never been so much fun! 

You may have played one of the many home console and computer conversions such as on the Atari 2600, or one of the cloned versions such as Acornsoft's Hopper for the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron, or Froggy on the ZX Spectrum. There were also countless BASIC language versions and type-in listings published in the computer magazines of the time.

You can play a free version of Frogger on my Simply Eighties website, and there is also a Frogger Gifts page, too.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we
