Now that we’ve discovered “Retro Day”, we want to take it over with TechnoRetro Day! Get your Sony Walkman or Panasonic Jam Box, drop in a mix tape, and jam out with tunes in your leisure suit, Jamz, or tie-dye this Thursday. #TechnoRetroDay
JediShua and shazbazzar will crank up the tunes, watch cartoons, and hit the arcade this Thursday as February 27th becomes #TechnoRetroDay. With a little help from the EarBuds, this will be a day to share and enjoy favorites from the past, present, and future with friends and family.
How did two years of “Retro Day” pass without us noticing? Join shazbazzar and JediShua as we make up for lost time in a week devoted to a mix tape of truly TechnoRetro tributes.

Remember what it was like to go into the arcade at the mall or shopping center with a five-dollar bill? With a bit of foresight based on hindsight (it is 2020, after all), JediShua and shazbazzar plan their TechnoRetro Day trip to the arcade.
The ‘Dads dig into truly retro cartoons they dug as kids (even if they weren’t strictly Saturday morning fare). With just a bit of controversy, their lists of TechnoRetro Day cartoons will have you reaching for a chilled bowl of your favorite cereal this Thursday.
The Road to the Empire Strikes Back
During the three year-long interval between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, the kids of the ‘70s needed something to keep them in that galaxy far, far away without losing their minds waiting for there heroes to return. Thankfully, Kenner had the prescription to keep hypersensitive kids from going full-on hyperactive: Star Wars action figures, playsets, and vehicles. Take a trip back in time as shazbazzar and JediShua relive the timeless toys from 1978, 1979, 1980, and beyond on the Road to the Empire Strikes Back.
