The 80s . . . the time of Mohawks and Big Hair, the Berlin Wall fell, cable aired its first MTV broadcast, and Cabbage Patch Dolls were flying off the shelves? The 90s . . .when eyebrows and belly buttons got pierced, everyone danced the Macarana, gangsta rap erupted, and the police chased O.J. down the L. A. Freeway?
