JAMS suck

A journalist might take offense if someone says this: "Why are you only writing touchy-feely stories? Don't you ever write hard-hitting news?"

Well, if that is a complaint for the Snooze Button Generation, then here's a hard-hitting newsflash:

JAMS suck.

Until now, this blog extolled many components of the Snooze Button Generation that most of us still love, including Atari, Lloyd Dobler, the Replacements and G.L.O.W., the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

But in reality, not everything from the Snooze Button Generation was positive, and good God, what were we thinking with JAMS? They suck.JAMS got real popular in the late 1980s, even though they were hideous-looking, over-designed Hawaiian shorts. If anyone wore them today, they would either be joking or considered the Corky of the fashion world. No offense to Corky, by the way. I actually must say that James Burke of "Life Goes On" fame is inspirational.

Anyway, JAMS still exist as part of the company Jams World. I find it hard to believe this company is making any money. The website is trying to come off as sophisticated, and the above shorts sell for $80.

Wait, wait, yeah, that's right. They're trying to pull off JAMS as sophisticated.... Good luck with that one!


  1. Leave Corky alone! That was an awesome show in the 80's.

  2. I might agree. Making fun of Corky - inappropriate, probably. Making fun of JAMS - appropriate, definitely.
