TechnoRetro Dads: A Summer of Monkeys and Chevys as we welcome Jovial Jay!

Fletch, Paul Simon’s Graceland, and a Secret of Monkey Island

Our good buddy shazbazzar is going to be taking some time off from the show. But never fear, the witty and effervescent Jay Shepard will be filling in!

In the NEWS

  • Mike Mignola has some great cereal art for charity
  • Rancho Obi-Wan now gives virtual tours
  • We are enjoying Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart shows on YouTube
  • It may just be a satirical story, but we would look forward to sequels from John Carpenter’s – They Live

We Love Our Cereal…

Great stories, courtesy of our Roving Spoonster Shane! Kelloggs has heard our wishes and given us giant cereal for your snacking pleasure. A new, sweet cereal is released from the small company Magic Spoon. A new way to close cereal boxes. Plus, enjoying some mini pancakes as a cereal. Is it a good idea?

Vinyl Scratchback

Do you remember Paul Simon’s 1986 release, Graceland? We take a look back on the influence of this groundbreaking album, and discuss some of the more memorable songs. And do we recognize someone from that You Can Call Me Al video?

TechnoRetro Arcade: The Secret of Monkey Island

In 1990 Lucasfilm Games released one of their biggest hits about a pirate named Guybrush Threepwood. Well, he wants to be a pirate. And you, as the player, will have to go on adventures and solve puzzles in this graphic adventure game reminiscent of the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Let’s All Go to the Movies

The summer of 1985 was kicked off in the movie theater with one of our favorite Not Ready for Primetime Players, Chevy Chase. Fletch was one of Chase’s biggest, (and funniest) movies. Quotable lines and hysterical humor made this one a movie with years of rewatch potential.
