Time travel continues with arcade games Time Pilot and a holographic time traveling simulation and some scientific theories about time travel.
Over the past ten days, ‘70s and ‘80s rock stars Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek left this world behind, so shazbazzar and JediShua remember their music that continues to live on.
Although we’re all a bit down about losing musical icons like Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek, this morning also features some good news about a specific SuperFriend and some exciting TechnoRetro shows on NBC’s streaming service, a peek at some spooky cereals, terrific (or terrible) autumnal jokes, timely arcade games, informative science lessons, and feedback.
In the NEWS:
- SuperFriend Michael Price receives an Emmy for writing “Mad about the Toy” episode of The Simpsons!
- The Far Side is returning. The time is near.
- Peacock to stream TechnoRetro shows like Battlestar Galactica, Punky Brewster, Saved by the Bell, and A Brave New World.
We Love Our Cereal…
…and so do Disney and Funko. Maleficent, Oogie Boogie, and four more Disney villains get mini-pops in the continuing Funko cereal series this October.
Eddie Money and Ric Ocasek debuted in the ‘70s with hit tunes and continued their popularity into the ‘80s and beyond. With recent news about their recent deaths in mind, we remember some of their hits from our youth.
- Hologram Time Traveler
- Time Pilot
