and then returning to blockbusters 20 minutes later to exchange the movie since the vhs tape you rented doesn't work and is all scratched up and wont play cause it jams up non stop.


i was young, but i remember going to brentwood mall with my mom and dad and brother in the early 90's because i knew going to the mall meant they'd visit eatons, and they had an awesome candy booth in the middle of the store. always got candy from them.

how about those super screaming sour candy things?(similar to warheads) came in a container like the icebreaker sour things....the lid would be a small frisbee at the end..think the candy caused a lot of health problems so they took it away...i wish i knew the name


early 90's, my dad had a baby blue station wagon with rear facing seats...fucking loved that thing as a kid(i was maybe 5 or 6 at the time)...slide the back window down and id just sit there and wave to every car behind us

cant forget these bad boys...my first pair of blades




used to have an awesome mighty max collection - thank you mom n dad for buying them all the time lol. one day for my birthday i had a bunch of kids from school at my party...one of my best friends at the time bought me "mighty max mega mountain" and i was in shock and awe.

Screaming Saucers? They made your mouth blue. Mighty Max.... I remember playing with miniature toys to recreate movies in my imagination.

I also played with these...

Blockbuster was such an archaic, poorly run company, that it's amazing they lasted as long as they did. I remember writing to them about their poor DVD selection, and they kept arguing that renters don't want DVDs, only collectors. People who rent only want VHS, and they don't want widescreen either. Even without knowing how much things would change, I could tell that it was only a matter of time that they die off. Of course they got DVDs eventually, but man that was pretty eye opening.

Oh man, the old Champlain Mall. Lots of memories going there because of the BMO and a family doctor we used to visit. I used to LOVE going down that flight of stairs to the lower floor.

Just randomly remembered the old chain stores such as Field's, Woolco and Woolworth's.

Also anyone remember the old days of video gaming where if you needed tips, tricks and hints you had to call a number? And there were typically long distance charges added on?

At least Rogers had LaserDiscs and a porn section.

-Park Royal Bowling Lanes, with the sweet arcade...would rush there after school and line my quarters up on Mortal Kombat 2, like this:



- Park Royal Driving Range: Would go there after dinner and hit balls any time of the year (the best was when the ground was frozen, your ball would bounce so far!)

- Adventure Playground: Located in Ambleside and we would spend the summer building a sweet fort, then you get to sleepover in it!

- Park Royal Theatre: I saw Batman Returns on a preview night by chance on the Thursday before it opened Friday. Went to school the next day and no one believed I saw it.

- Lighthouse Park camps: They had the longest zip line ever, and of course you didn't use a helmet or get strapped in

- Timmy Ho's on Marine in North Van: Next to what was forever Burger King, it was the only thing open on the North Shore past midnight. All the rich kids showed up in their fancy cars their daddy's bought them.

Anyone else from the North Shore have memories?
I grew up in north van. First memory, and probably one that changed my life, taking the bus to consumer distributors on marine (next to BK) and asking my brother what he purchased: the original NES. Had no idea what it was but did I ever love it.

Going to Woolco with my parents at cap mall (where Walmart is now). Also, going to sears and buying as many Pavel Bure cards as I could at Mr C's card shop.

Cheap movie nights @ esplanade and park and tilford theaters.

Ambelside seawall before the storm demolished it

The save on at park and tilford had a video rental system, and I'd always look at the Sega master system game cartridges

Using the internet for the very first time at the north van library. I'd always rush so I can book the slotted one hour time slot,and I'd go on Talkcity and created my first email account

Winning a super Nintendo system at crazy mikes video rental through a ballot system..rogers eventually set up shop and took em out

Also I remember when these came out


When my dad didn't want to bother buying one for me, I went and asked my uncle. He spoiled me rotten and said yes right away. The only drawback was that he got to choose which one. He chose the Santa Garfield which is the one I wanted anyway.

He died in 1997 and I've kept everything he ever gave me including the Garfield plushie. It sits on my high top dresser.

I don't know if anyone remembers these commercials that ran in the mid to late 90s every Christmas time?


It was a contest put on by McDonald's between the schools. The group performing that song won first place. My class (Grade 6 at the same school) won 2nd place and our prize was a trip down to the 99.3 The Fox / LG73 studio where we got to record our song live to tape where it would be played on the airwaves throughout the holiday season. It was fucking incredible

We also got lots and lots of this for our troubles
