I'm not a pack rat...

...I swear I'm not. But I can never really render good reason for the small amount of stuff I do decide to keep filed away for years. I was looking through my Prince clippings (I had a wee bit of a Prince obsession a while back), and I came across this advertisement that had been mailed to me, as a member of his fan club:

The Prince Fragrance: Get Wild
I can only imagine what it smells like. But even worse is the packaging. I'm sure at the time, big white afros were all the rage, but it doesn't exactly scream aromatic:

I also found this old magazine cover. Guess the celebrity, if you can get past that beeyootiful sweater. I guess '82 was the year of the loom:

Click for the answer.

I could Not have guessed it was Demi Moore! I am so glad I was too young in the 80's to remember such stuff.

Yeah, you do keep some strange stuff, including the suicidal love notes from elementary school.

Demi Moore, eh? She looked like a soap opera star in that photo. Oh yeah, she was one once. Might have been after this photo though.

I was also a big big Prince fan, but I have to admit that I never owned "get wild". I do however remember sneaking down to the living room late at night to watch his risque videos on MuchMusic.

And seriously.. that is One Seriously badly done packaging design. It's even ugly Prince standards.

Let's see....Demi was a budding star and in a soap opera in 1982, while Ashton was four and probably saying "VROOM!" a lot while he played (at least I was in 1982)...nice. But that's a great sweater.

Was Ashton Kutcher even born yet? I wonder if his mother read this magazine and decided to make him a baby blanket. Wouldn't that be ironic?

The small photo to the left of the yarn kindda looked like some sort of early 80's experimental sex toy. When you see the larger picture it doesn't help. It just looks like a more complicated sex toy with a gizmo on a string (for her pleasure!) Just an observation.
