Greetings, Programs!

Forty-five years ago today, JediShua took his first breath into a larger world.  Celebrate with TechnoRetro Dads on 7/11 as the older ‘Dad spins another year on the turntable of life on this JediShua Day!

LEGO

SuperFriend Aaron Goins, cohost of Star Scavengers: A LEGO Star Wars Podcast, joins shazbazzar and JediShua for a peek into the latest LEGO Star Wars creation, The Freemaker Adventures.  Then the conversation moves upstairs to the attic in hopes of retrieving some LEGO bricks and reliving our own LEGO adventures of the past with our earliest memories of the building blocks from Billund as well as our ongoing fascination with the ever-popular creative toys.  From gas stations to tump trucks to space men minifigs and, of course, Star Wars sets, these three ‘Dads revel in the days of multi-colored, interlocking plastic bricks and the promising possibilities they represent.

NEWS

With Ghostbusters coming out later this week, some may remember the repeated cry for a third movie with the original cast that was left unanswered.  However, Gamestersstuff on YouTube has provided fans with an alternative: Ghostbusters III via the 2009 video game.  Check it out!

HISTORY LESSON

Timetravel through the annals of fictional and film history this week with Aaron Burr, Agent K, Agent J, Alexander Hamilton, Billie Holiday, Billy Dee Williams, Billy the Kid, and the balding Captain of the Enterprise: Jean-Luc Picard.
