The Fifth Dimension? Old news. Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony? Shallow. TechnoRetro Dads begin their Fifth Season? Masterful.
JediShua and shazbazzar embark on the next chapter of TechnoRetro Dads with a shorter episode packed full of urgent news stories, unexpected cereal tastes, and udderly ridiculous Aftershocks of 1977 in an abbreviated show.

Onward into the Fifth Season
With four years behind them, shazbazzar and JediShua begin the fifth season of TechnoRetro Dads with a shorter-than-usual episode (due to time constraints) as we continue to look at news, history, video games, and Aftershocks of 1977. The year ahead looks fantastic — much better than this episode.
In the NEWS…
An unbelievable amount of news was released this week about Disney, Star Wars, TRON, Indiana Jones, and Ready Player Two. You won’t believe your ears when you hear what we have to say about it!
Some of us Love Our Cereal…
A brand new, unannounced cereal has just unseated Cinnamon Toast Crunch as the all-around best cereal of all time. What is it? Tune in to find out. (We think shazbazzar may have picked up the wrong thing. He couldn’t have been eating the same thing JediShua was eating.)
What could be better than watching Q*bert fall off his pyramid of cubes? Raking falling leaves! We’re guessing that few people still remember this 1982 interactive arcade game by Gotchlieb.
Aftershocks of 1977
We take a peek back at the Bosco award winning movie from 1977, Danny Pall. The tragic comedy features a forty-something dad with a neurosis that causes him to revert back to his former years at random and puts everyone in disarray. Only available on Betamax these days, this one will be hard to find!
Loads of Fictional History of fictional events all occur on the same day — and we’re here to chronicle them all! Find out more by downloading TechnoRetro Dads.
