    Sgt Pepper taught the band to play... Wait, was it 30 years ago or 20 years ago? Regardless, back in 1991 I was 5 and made a time capsule. Sadly, my mom is moving out of her house so I went over there to help her pack things and get ready for the move. My mom reminded me of the time capsule I made so I went out to find it. How fitting that it's actually been 20 full years since I buried it. Well, I dug the sucker up and here's what I found...

    A #1 issue of the X-men series that was rebooted for the 90's

    I had two copies, the other one is with my collection of X-Men comics.

    Pearl Jam's album Ten on cassette tape

    I don't remember even listening to Pearl Jam, I was into Micheal Jackson, LOL. I guess that's why I buried this tape instead of one from MJ.

    Terminator 2 on VHS

    A picture of our Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney

    A picture of US President George Bush (Sr)

    As well as posters for...
    -Super Mario Bros 3
    -Fresh Prince of Bel Air
    -The Simpsons
    -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (cartoon)
    -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (Video Game)
    -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (Movie)
    -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Turtles Awesome Easter... (I don't know WTF that is.)

    And I note that reads... and I quote myself when I was 5...
    Translation: Autumn was a girl I met in Kindergarten... I guess I wrote this before I found out she had another 5 boyfriends.... that slut!!! The Iraqi war was going on, it was not world war 3, why did I think that? Freddy Mercury from Queen died and my mom was a huge fan of Queen. And our taxes were raised from 7% to 15%. Ouch.

    Anyway, this might not have made you as nostalgic as it made me but I thought it was cool to share it.

    That...was...awesome. Good spelling for a 5 year old, man. I love that your time capsule includes a US President. Canada, the ever-gracious neighbor.

    Much love to the TMNT.

    Thanks man. Yes I've been told I was a great writer and that I could read at the age of two. Unfortunately I never took English seriously in high school and my writing suffered. But hey, at least I know the difference between "Your" and "You're" :p

    And I was indeed TMNT obsessed but who wasn't back then? The only reason I was able to bury so many of their posters was because I had another 10-15 in my room.

    Cool story bro. I don't think I ever actually made a time capsule for myself, but my family keeps mementos like crazy.

    We still have a soccer bag filled with action figures from TMNT, X-Men, Terminator, G.I. Joe, Batman, and the like. Truly a testament of the glory of the late-80's and 90's.

    I still have some homework from when I was 5. I didn't time capsule it or anything, I just don't ever clean my room.
