For those of you for whom English may not be your primary or secondary langauge, Throwback Thursday is a web trend; something that's currently popular; a fad, if you will. On Twitter, people will often hashtag it like this:

#tbt

Please use this thread to post a photo of yourself or anything from your past or from society's past, for that matter. I usually prefer to post something that involves me, but you can post whatever you like.

Here are some quick examples of some photos you may want to post:

your 8-bit Atari computer that still works
a 5.25" floppy disk
your 80s hairdo
the first vinyl record you ever owned
a link to an audio file of a recording of you calling 411 to get a phone number because Google? What is that?

Without further ado, here's my contribution.

Note the irony of the misspelling.

A friend on FB asked the question "Question about the supposed decline of print media. When was the last time you bought the following: newspaper, magazine, book. I'm curious to see the responses."

It gave me an idea for my Throwback Thursday for today:

My answer to the magazine part of his question:

Magazine: March 6th, 2008 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, because one of my favorite singers was on the cover and there was an article about him.

And the Rolling Stones cover in question:

(Is 6 years long enough to qualify as a "throwback"? I hope so!) :D
