    Not too long ago I bought a box of old magazines from the 70s and 80s. I find it fascinating and often educational to look through them. Call it cultural archeology, semiology, or an exploration of things that made up the world I once knew and which shaped my psyche. Those amongst you who are sympathetic to what I'm talking about will understand.

    In this particular issue of Ladie's Home Journal from February 1983 I was delighted to find, amongst the ads for Maxi Pads, cigarettes, weight loss products, and salad dressings, an article about the stars of the television show One Day at a Time. Ed and Valerie Bertinelli had recently gotten married and the write up includes some candid photos of them in domestic newlywed bliss.

    There's not much to the text, though Valerie mentions that Ed's Mother was an excellent cook with an expertise in spicy Indonesian food. It sounds like there was something of an "Odd Couple" dynamic going on from the beginning, as Valerie was a neat freak, though Ed was slob who had to spend two days cleaning up his music room to impress her Father when her parents visited.

    I'll bet I'm the first AGFer to ever reference Ladie's Home Journal. :ROFLMAO:

    Was it good?

    Eddie and Valerie look so young and happy, amazing. Never mind EVH and Valerie. look at Ali McGraw! She looks a tad androgynous!

    I'm 100% with you on cultural archaeology, I also enjoy looking back on what it was like in my most formative years. I actually had to find the Boy's Scouts of America "Way Back Machine" website which has an archive of every issue of "Boy's Life" magazine, their official magazine because when I was a cub scout in 1982, I loved one particular issue, so I recently had to re-read it again...here are some excerpts, and get ready to time warp back to 1982....(sorry for the brief hijack, but wanted to add some archaeological artifacts).....

    Also, per one of the articles on the cover of the Ladies Home Journal you are showcasing, here is Christina DeLorean literally standing by her man.....

    Hijack welcome and appreciated. I'd love for this to turn into a 1982 nostalgia thread. :smile:

    Anyone else notice the crazy tanning booth goggle "raccoon eyes" on both Ed and Val?

    Why in the world would anyone who lives in southern California need to use a tanning booth?

    I'm going to venture and say that due to his career choice, Ed probably had a mostly nocturnal life and missed a lot of the daylight hours? lol

    This is great stuff, but there's just one thing... "candid photos of them in domestic newlywed bliss" must mean something totally different where I'm from :whistle:

    I'd cut him some slack. The first record came out in 78-79. That's not much earlier. Who wouldn't make some big mistakes? Their first record is still a killer, and she can never change that.

    It could be worse; just think of Planet Of The Dinosaurs.

    If you enjoyed that insight into EVH's life, you really need to read "Red."

    For nostalgia, how about some billboards:

    You know, if I practiced 10 or 20 thousand hours I might be able to play like Ed, but I'm not so sure about my chances of bangin' ole Valerie. At least not now, anyway.

    PS That's not Ali McGraw, its:
