Chuck E. Cheese’s Birthday Party, 1983



The birthday boy is Marshall Matlock. Wish I could see what’s in those presents.

Was there a room underneath the stage that had strobe lights you could turn off and on, or am I dreaming that?

General Mills put out quite a bit of BSG merchandise, including a mail-away cardboard Space Station Kit (for five proof of purchase seals). I’ll post that soonish.

Birthday Party, 1979: ‘Pin the Tail on the Daggit’

Birthday Daggit 1979

I envy Devlin Thompson, who writes of his 11th birthday:

My father… made the game out of white and mustard-yellow poster board (do they even make that color anymore?), and did a bang-up job of it, if I do say so myself. There was also a cake with a Colonial Viper airbrushed on top, and I seem to remember loaning the baker one of the toys as a reference, though it may have just been a comic book or an issue of Starlog.

It was a hell of a thing when the Cylons attacked Caprica and Boxey’s daggit Muffie got killed. I guess all those people dying was sad too, but seeing Muffie’s little paw sticking out of the rubble was the worst.

It was pretty awesome when Boxey got a robot daggit for a replacement, though. I wish my cat made rad robotic daggit noises.

Is this a birthday party or a funeral? Cheer up, kids! For one thing, your clothes will never again be this awesome.
