TechnoRetro Dads: Flashback to the Ready Player One Lazy Book Club

by TechnoRetro Dads

The Lazy Book Club is a virtual book club where TechnoRetro Dads, SuperFriends, and EarBuds can talk about audio books they’ve “lazy read.”

Four years ago, SuperFriend Jamie joined shazbazzar and JediShua to discuss Ernest Cline’s bestselling novel, Ready Player One, in the first three meetings of the Lazy Book Club.

Flashback to the Ready Player One Lazy Book Club


With just a couple weeks until Ready Player One hits theaters, shazbazzar and JediShua are here with over two hours of hype for the movie with SuperFriend and co-host of TRON: Decoding the Grid JAMIE!  (And, by the way, if you haven’t set your clock forward an hour by now, you’re probably late for work, so…)

In the NEWS

John Williams will retire from Star Wars after Episode Nine.  Jon Favreau (Pre Vizsla) joins a Star Wars series again, but this time in the role of writer and director!  Disney renews their relationship with McDonald’s with new “Happy Meal” toys for The Incredibles and Wreck It Ralph this year.  The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy gets its sixth installment of the trilogy in a new radio drama on BBC.  Retro posters promote Ready Player One in some cities and more games are available for you to share and enjoy on the movie’s website.

Lazy Book Club

Four years ago this month, TechnoRetro Dads aired the first three meetings of the Lazy Book Club with Jamie, long-time SuperFriend and co-host of TRON: Decoding the Grid.  It took three (segments and EarBuds) to cover Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One four years ago, and we’re not sure we could do any better even now!  So if you’re not avoiding potential spoilers and you want to revisit the book with some friends, tune in for two hours of the Lazy Book Club from March 2014.
