11 Things From Your Childhood You Don't Even Remember

- Page 1

Obviously things have changed a lot since we were kids. With technology moving as quickly as it does, there are things that we used to do that seem completely outrageous now. The things that were normal even five or ten years ago seem completely archaic and ridiculous now.

There are definitely a few things that seem to stand out more than others though, especially when it comes to the things you forgot that you used to do regularly.

Being able to listen to music on a kiosk before buying it

These are probably still around in some malls, but a lot of the old CD stores seem to have closed down. I guess it isn't the worst thing, sharing headphones with hundreds of strangers isn't really the best thing ever.

Trying to find the right song on LimeWire when half of them are mislabeled

There is a special kind of evil out there and it resides in those who think it's okay to call a song by the wrong name. If you don't know the song, do not put it up there! It really wasn't fair to those of us on dial-up internet who waited three hours for it to download.

Virgin Records

Paying per text message

Remember how mad your parents would get if you went over the limit on your plan? Each text cost so much!

Reading the TV listings in the newspaper or in the TV Guide

TV Guide

This was the only way to know if your show was going to be a repeat or not!

There's a lot more you probably remember too..

Curse Of 'The Mummy' - How The Classic Film Nearly Wiped Out Its Cast

If any movie proves that "they just don't make 'em like they used to," it's The Mummy.That's the The Mummy - as in the box office smash of 1999, to avoid any confusion with certain other films bearing the same name.The mystical adventure had action, laughs, and special effects that look amazing to this day - and they should, because they cost $150,000 per shot.While The Mummy gave audiences chills, making the movie was just as frightening for its cast. From the very beginning of the shoot, to the movie's premiere, it seems like the film's


I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered

During my childhood, there was never a moment I didn't wish I was a Disney princess. While I was partial to Belle, I felt a deep investment to all of the characters, who made me believe in happily-ever-afters. Growing up, I had watched each movie at least a dozen times, but I never realized something was missing, particularly, a body part.This isn't the only time the princesses have shared key attributes, as it was previously uncovered why they are predominately seen dressed in blue.DisneyIt's also interesting to note that most of their mothers have either passed away or
