So I literally just got the memo today. I was so sad about the state of RJ over the last few years but hadnt been active in the forums since 2011. I missed all the OG writers. and wondered why they didnt post anymore. I decided to post the other day and when I posted my LEHI articles in the past people would respond quick. THis time it was crickets comparitvely. I decided to do some research and Saw VKIMOs Retrojunk memories article.
SO Glad to see all of my favorite writers over here. so so so  excited to be here. Also I have a Youtube Channel THat I say in almost every video was inspired by a little site called RetroJunk.
Check out www.youtube.com/c/iremembergaming
Now wheres Harry Reems and HOJU Koolander?
My favorite Harry Reems quote when I posted my wife and I's destro and dominatrix Baroness costume on RJ back in the day.
"OH S**T, NOW IVE ACHIEVED A BONER AT WORK AND AM IN BIG TROUBLE, GOTTA GO."

YEs Kodakthe1andonly it is. Of course the legends Benjanime and VKIMO .Was so happy to find this place . I thought the day of the nostalgia had come to a close. I thought the days of remembering had seen the twilight. Maybe there will be days where Nostalgia no longer reins supreme. But it will not be these DAZE.

haha Yeah the G.I.Joe Mustang. but wait till you guys get a load of my Ghostbusters motorcycle I built in China and then had confinscated by the government.

So
I live in Shenzhen, which is like one of the most futuristic and rich
cities in the world. Just walking outside is a constant Car SHow and
most foreigners here admit that it feels like we are all living in Blade
Runner. All the massive skyscrapers have massive TVs that literally
cover the entirety of the buildings, The Metro System is state of the
art complete with police robots, There is an app in China Called Wechat,
that does everything, we pay for literally everything on it. Taxis,
food, restaurants, even Mcdonalds and Starbucks finally Caved and
accepted it because of all the money they lost. The app can really do
anything, I even get paid on
the app now. You can order and pay for Mcdonalds, KFC, Starbucks,
Subway, Burger King, even gas stations will deliver smokes booze,
condoms snacks you name it, usually for no extra charge if you buy like 5
us dollars worth of stuff. A delivery dude usually arrives within 10
minutes. Really mind-blowing stuff. The city has the second biggest
skyscraper on earth, THe nightclubs have pyrotechnics and Russian
dancers that like rise out of the floor with all sorts of holograms and
crazy stuff. There are bikes all over the city you can scan with your
phone and they unlock by blue tooth and charge by solar panels. Speaking
of Green energy All the street lamps have windmills and Solar panels.
The whole city is under complete surveillance which as an American,
doesn't really drive. But one time I left all my pro cam equipment that
my buddy and the most famous Youtuber in China, SerpentZA, sold me when
he upgraded to 4k for pennies on the dollar. Such a good dude. We went 
to the police station, and via Video,were
able to follow the cab driver from the nightclub to my house and all
the way home and retrieve my thousands of dollars in movie-making
equipment,
THE REASON I MENTION ALL THIS.
As you can maybe
imagination, this is one of the richest cities on earth, and usually,
only poor people ROll in motorcycles and Ebikes here. Well, the
Maserati, Rolls Royce bunch isn't too keen on having motorcycles dodging
in and out of traffic, SO they have passed legislation completely
banning the use of Motorcycles and EBIKES.
However, that being said
this is China. I call it "THE REAL LAND OF THE FREE 11 MONTHS OUT OF THE
YEAR. **They seem to only enforce laws about one month out of the year.) because walking around in Shenzhen, Shanghai, or Beijing you
would think to yourself that motorcycles are perfectly legal because
your gonna see a million a second.
All the foreigners have them to
and I read an article about an American in a small province who would
ride one of these three wheeled bikes around with his kids in the back and
it went viral. So I wanted one. I went and got a second hand, shat
green bike with a truck bed used for deliveries that ran on a giant
rechargeable battery that I had to lug up to my 30th-floor apartment
every night.
 But the bike looked like shat.


I remember The ecto 3 Toy and wanted to emulate that kinda.


So I made it look rad. This isn't my main youtube channel. This is just a personal one. but here it is in
all its glory.

SO
one day After work my wife Hopped in the back and I started blasting
down the side road for bikes and blew right passed a Cop. I heard him
yell stop in Chinese. Hell no. I stepped on it and started crossing the
crossroads, my wife hitting me on the back the whole time telling me to
stop. I didn't notice there were cops on every street corner. The one in
back of me shouted to the other ones and I noticed one coming at me so I
flipped around and started gunning
but it too late to see another cop running up on me on my blindside. 
As I zoomed past he PULLED THE KEY from my ignition. The joke was on him
tho. This old hunk of junk,
was so ragged that it would keep running even without the key, you had
to disconnect the battery under the seat So I just laughed at him but
noticed I was getting surrounded. I totally could have made it, but it
was my wife's first time in China ( I had lived here for a year once
before I got married. ) and she was freaking out in the back seat
telling me to stop. F THAT. I goosed it as gnarly as I could, but A cop
caught up with me and grabbed on the truck bed, near my wife, and Like I
started dragging him. So now I knew I could get in trouble if I hurt
him and my wife was hitting me telling me to stop So finally, defeated I
pulled onto the sidewalk as like 5 cops grabbed my wheel. I told the
Cops that I had to go pick up my kids fast from school so I hadn't much
time to Chat. They kept telling me that I couldn't leave and my Chinese
was too bad to understand or talk to em.
So I called my sexy MILF boss from Hong Kong that owned the art company
I worked for teaching kids how to make pixel art of NESS and Super
Mario among other things. (Great Job btw) She showed up and they argued,
A crowd gathered around. Some of the Chinese onlookers started yelling
at the cop saying that he was just messing with us because we were
foreigners and to let us go. My boss was telling them the same. He
explained to my boss that he was so sorry, When I blew by him it just so
happens that he was sitting on that corner with some important
government official from Beijing that was just complimenting him on
something as I blasted by on the sidewalk. He said the Government
official made him do it. At one point I told the cop that if he thought
my kids were cute, he had to let me go. I handed him the passports and
he said "Wo zhidao, nida Haizi Feiqiang Ku ai,
Which means I know, your kids look very cute. I said, "Dope Bye and
goosed again. he dropped his notebook and stumbled trying to catch me. I
said in Chinese "what the hell bro, we had a deal ." anyways I could
finally tell we were f***ed So I tried taking a selfie with the ***hole
taking away my birthday. Here is the whole ordeal. My wife, being mad in the back, The cops Blocking me, my fine wine boss trying to defend me, and of course the selfie. RIP Ecto 3


And here is the G.I.Joe Mustang for old times sake VKIMO



Also,
it was pretty painfully obvious that a member of this site was teaching
art in China. I will let you guys use your context clues.

Dude....you should make this into an article and submit to the front page! I had a blast reading that and I bet a lot of other people will as well. It's so cool that you're exposing kids to 80s/90s stuff..what else have you shown them, besides cartoons and video games? Any music? I love the idea that some kids in China are growing up with American cartoons from 20-30 years ago, lol.

Yeah the classrooms came with like kids bop bs music. Instantly threw the mp3 player out, we are talking GHostbusters, Stan Bush Transformers songs, ducktales, Goofy Movie soundtrack, Bonjovi, Journey, Van Halen, The Cure, Def Lepard, Blondie, Devo, tons of Pat benatar, Madonna, Tiffany, The music during the class is top notch. They had all these CGI disney cartoons playingin the lobby , immedialaty took the jump drive out of the Tv and threw the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, Sailor moon, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, THundercats all that on so during their breaks they are all just staring wide eyed and the best cartoons of all time. I will man good Idea. Real good Idea. I need to scour my Chinese social media and find all the other cool classes. They had some stupid mask class in the curriculm, I threw out the plan and Had the kids make Majoras mask and the original Might Morphin Power Rangers masks. I already have submitted one article. Just waiting for that one to post to make sure I did it right, and then the next one I will do this. Thanks for the rad idea brother.
