Fluorescent Ultraviolet Psychedelic Blacklight Snake Cobra Poster
As a kid growing up in the 70s and 80s, I fondly remember the Fluorescent Ultraviolet Psychedelic Blacklight Snake Cobra Poster, and all the classic coming-of-age movies from that time, like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Rocky, The Godfather, Alien, Star Wars, and Indiana. Join me on a nostalgic journey as I take a look back at these films and the memories they evoke.
Relive the Nostalgia of Growing Up in the 70s and 80s with Classic Coming-of-Age Movies

Remember this? I do! It was on my wall growing up, and now it’s burned into my psyche like the red hot colors its made from. If you remember it too, you may be a kid of the seventies! Spencer’s Gits! Oh, what a gift it is that Spenser’s still exists. The USSR may come and go. The mall where you bought it may be gone. But such precious images persist.
Wow, did I miss the 70s. I was born 1970 so it’s always real easy to calculate my age. I was 10 in 1980, 20 in 1990, 30 in 2000… wow, that seemed so far away! And here we are in 2022! My goodness! Maybe I’ll buy this poster again and re-listen to all the awesome music of the 70s.

Coming of Age Movies of The 1970s and 1980s Were The Best
That’s probably all I need to write about that. However, my mind goes racing. There were other things in my wall. Ahhh, a Tale of Two Heathers: Locklear and Thomas. I should show their posters here, though there’s really no particular tale to tell except the one you can infer about puberty. Refer to Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Ahh, the brat-pack and coming-of-age movies of my generation were best. I don’t care what you say about American Pie (Yeah, I’m that old to consider that new). Nothing holds a candle to Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club. And while not precisely coming-of-age movies, I came of age during Rocky, The Godfather, Alien and Star Wars. I mean come on now. The Greatest Generation may have saved our asses from the Nazi’s, but we got to watch Indiana Jones.
