on a thread related note my white whale for years was a half-remembered episode of MacGuyver where his partner is being hypnotized and taken to a theme park fun house where he is planted with subliminal messages in order to have him assassinate an African leader. Keep in mind I was probably 8 years old when the episode aired and only a year or two ago did I bother doing a search for it and lo and behold it's even crazier than I remember.

I take photos of airplanes. I've photographed at least a few of all the Gulfstream jets - lots of rich bastards in California, it turns out - but I've never even seen the original - a G-159 Gulfstream I.

I guess that's not really in line with what most people are posting in this thread. There was also this really nice sketchbook I filled up a few years ago. I wanted to find another one with a similar paper quality - it was great for fine details with a pencil - but I never could.

This displeases Dev- ..van. Shut up.


Two songs that used to play a bunch on JBTV in the 90s and I'm not gonna be a ton of help here, so I expect no one to get either.

In the one the hook is the male singer going "IIIIIII" then it cuts to a girl saying "hate you" also there's a bit near the end where it goes "we all fall down" a couple times, pretty sure. Indie song, mid 90s, pretty fast tempo.

The other I'd swear had something to do with the phrase four leaf clover used quite a bit, something about taking a handful of goodbye pills. The hook was a repetition of "I made, made up my mind".

Both were played a bunch on Q101 during the indie shows around 95-96 also. I have zero expectations here, but if anyone can figure out these songs from my lovely description I will die happy and also probably annoy my wife this weekend by playing them both while drunk.

I sort of found it.

It was a book I read as a kid about a giant nerd with a spaceship full of alien monsters and a psychic cat. Turns out it's called Tuff Voyaging, and it's by George R. R. Martin, of all loving people. The main thrust of the book is about the need for population control, and I didn't even remember that part.

A song I heard one time at least 20 years ago that has stuck with me. It was a folk-rock style song, and the one line I can remember from it is "sitting in the back of a long black Cadillac."

I've googled every iteration of this phrase a dozen times and not found the right one.

If I could compare the style to any artist, it would be Nick Cave, but I'm pretty sure I dug through his entire catalog looking for it and didn't find it.

Pretty sure it was a Nike commercial, started with a dude in a room and he runs through a wall, then keeps running through walls until he meets up with a woman running alongside him, also running through walls, and they start racing. Eventually they get outside and start running vertically up a huge tree. The commercial ends before you find out who wins. saw it once in school and then never again.

There's a story I remember only vaguely about a guy who discovers a colony of intelligent mice in his basement. They use tools and they're able to communicate. He helps them along with building stuff and they become a civilization. Initially he keeps it hidden from his wife, but one day he comes home to discover she's found them on her own and is completely enchanted with them, and it even kind of rekindles their relationship and they pretty much just grow old together and become the guardians of generations of mice.

Somehow I got it firmly in my head that it's a goon post, but it may be a general internet story, or even one from an anthology. A while ago I posted in in all the "lost stuff" threads I could find and it rang a bell with a couple of people, but no one's managed to come up with so much as a title or author.

Did the mice form religions really easily?

If so, this might be one of the backstory shorts from Seanan McGuire's "InCryptid" books.

Well that's my story.


There was a game I played on DOS in like '94-95 that I'm pretty sure was just called "Marbles"

It was a live-action game, and the goal of the game was to knock the other 4-5 marbles off the playing area into the abyss. You could select from like 8 different marbles and each one had a different special ability. I specifically remember one marble was black and white spotted like a Holstein cow and it could spit cud. There was another marble that had the ability to stop on a dime, making a big screeching noise.

It was fun as hell to 6 year old me but I've never been able to find any proof that the game existed.

I've got two.

The first is a movie that I caught the last five minutes of on TV when I was a kid. As far as I could tell the premise was that some normal adults got transferred to a fantasy world and had just finished running through some maze/labyrinth thing. They confront the bad guy at the end, the woman reveals that they collected enough magic coins, and they were allowed to return to Real Earth and go back to their jobs. I have absolutely no idea who was in it or what channel it was on but I wanted to watch the entire thing really badly and never found out what it was.

The second was some YA novel about a group of teens that were all part of some secret club/society where they all wore masks that were a different color. Most of them ended up being bad people. I read it multiple times and can't remember the title of it and it's driven me crazy for years.

I made this incredible spicy mango and sweet potato curry this one time. It was seriously the best thing I have ever tasted in my life, just the right balance of being sweet, spicy, and savory. It was supposed to be my lunch for the next couple of days but I ate it all within 24 hours. Usually I am only an okay cook

I've occasionally tried to replicate this curry but have never really come close. I don't know how it wound up being so good the first time around and it is slowly driving me mad

I made a Linguini Carbonara about a year ago that was just loving perfect. The perfect saltiness and cheesiness. I've tried making it a few times since but it never comes out right.

There was a book I read in middle school about some kid on a trip to the desert with his dad who gets teleported to another planet or something. Bright flash of light, then he's alone in the middle of some jungle and has to learn to survive. He meets a tribe of people and starts living with them, then he gets captured by another group and eventually becomes their leader. He lives this whole life out there, gets married to some lady named Meg'haan or something, then gets teleported back at the end of the book. Reminded me a bit of the John Carter series.

I cannot for the life of me find this drat book again. I've been looking for years.

A few things from childhood.

One is an ice cream sandwich with blue, white, and pink ice cream inside. I ate one in the 90s but cannot find the brand, nor any record of these existing. Funnily enough while searching I found someone on Reddit (who also lived in New England in the 90s) who's had one of these. At least I know I didn't imagine it.

Second thing is a toy I had as a baby. It was a light blue two-sided cat made from terrycloth material, with a happy face on one side and a crying face on the other. The original got lost in a flood and I've been searching for another one for twenty years.

Also do any late gen-xers/early millennials here remember Encyclopedia Brown videos/film strips from the mid-80s? They had a really catchy theme song, but I can't recall anything else about them so it's hard to search.

This 90's ad for iced tea where a guy that looks like the devil swigs the tea, jumps into a volcano, and when you think he's dead he emerges from the lava and starts swimming in it like it's an olympic pool. Set to this memorably bizarre soundtrack of a female opera singer belting a staccato jazz melody.

drat it. I think i hit a limit, but yeah music is always being sorted out, so what you can't find today, is not a total loss, you'll probably find eventually.

The way I found the madness song, was omitting the word Cadillac and put "sat in the back of a long black" in quotes with the word Lyrics into google search. Yeah using the word Cadillac brings up way to many results
