TechnoRetro Dads: Dreams, Dreaming, and Dreamscape

by TechnoRetro Dads

It’s Monday morning, sleepyhead!  Quit dreaming and get out of bed with 77 minutes of dreamy tunes, a nightmarish thriller from 1984, and much, much more.

In 1984, dreaming became dangerous when psychic psychos were able to invade others’ periods of REM sleep with frightening results in the PG-13 thriller Dreamscape.

When you need someone to falsely support your delusions, when you wear boxer shorts appropriate for work (remember it’s called underwear for a reason), when everything is controvurtial, even if you’re a Streamer (our official designation of Generation Z), TechnoRetro Dads wants you to dream big — but not right now.  It’s Monday morning and you’ve got to go to work/school so kickstart your week with 77 minutes of fun and fandom.
