My late night lifestyle started innocently enough. One Saturday night I asked if I could stay up late to watch WWF Saturday Night's Main Event that came on at 11:30 pm. My parents said yes... and I never had to ask again. What I would soon discover, however, was that after hours t.v. in the late 80's was freakin' awesome!
On Fridays after midnight it was Friday night videos on channel 4 where I'd catch the latest Lisa Lisa video followed by Def Leppard followed by New Edition. Watching that show is the reason why my musical taste is so broad and eclectic to this day! After Friday night videos, it was over to channel 8 to watch some R rated B movies on "Up All Night" where I'd hopefully catch a glimpse of a titty or something. Usually it was a pixelated titty, but pixelated titties to a 10 year old in the 80's with no parental supervision was fuckin' rad!
On Saturdays of course it was watching late night wrestling or Saturday Night Live, followed by It's Showtime At The Apollo (when both were really good). Again all this followed by pixelated tits. Until that one memorable night when in my desperation for something more, I discovered the trick of putting the cable box on one channel lower than the Spice channel and the t.v. on channel 4 instead of 3. That's the day I graduated from pixelated to scrambled titties. My childhood was glorious!
You kids will never know the rush of hearing your dad coming down the hallway at 1 in the morning in the middle of a naked pixelated women binge then having to quickly turn off the t.v. and run back to your bedroom to pretend to be sleeping with your heart beating out of your chest...making it to your bed just in the nick of time. Talk about an adrenalin rush! I can proudly say my speed and agility allowed me to NEVER be caught. Undefeated late night den-sneaking ninja from 1987 - 1993. My childhood was incredible!
Anyway...these are the last bag of chips my homie Eli brought me from Thailand. I have no idea what these are, but judging from the bag, it's some kind of seaweed/soy sauce flavor. This bag is really small, I finished it in about 39 seconds. Upon first bite, I get a medium savory/salty taste followed by an earthy umami type of finish. Pretty good! The consistency on these are more like a rice chip. Like a texture between cinnamon toast crunch and a cheese puff, but it works on this chip. Pretty good as a quick snack, but I don't think I would finish a larger bag. 3 outta 5 on the chip mack scale.
