I just bought every episode of this groundbreakingly awesome show on DVD. 8 DVD's for $20.00, not too shabby.

Did anybody ever wonder... If Soundwave is a cassette player, how in the hell does he make energon cubes?

At some point in Jr. High, I'd thought it'd be a good idea to stencil a hairband's logo on the back of my faded blue jean jacket. But my Poison logo was hot pink, not flourescent green. Did I mention I was classy?

the man that fires a gun faster than his shadow, fights crime and injustice, and succeeds.

When I was like 12 or 13, I watched Breakfast Club for the first time and I tried to bleach and dye my hair red. It looked so incredibly bad-- the bleaching wasnt quite right, and my hair frizzed up. I was so embarassed.

http://img260.echo.cx/img260/9392/julie13vi1ca.jpg
I remember ripping up the pictures that my mom took of me at my birthday party because I was so embarassed. Imagine that little girl with hair that was so frizzy, it was almost like a flattened afro, and the tint of red that only an elderly French woman would have.

Horrible!
