Happy New Year, Ear Buds! Though the year filled with Aftershocks of 1977 has passed, TechnoRetro Dads doesn’t throw out the old to make way for the new — enjoy both in the present!
JediShua and shazbazzar take time for fond memories of 2017 while expecting more #TechnoRetro good times in the new year.
The Fulcrum of Past and Future
The last two weeks of the year are always loaded with enough activity to keep shazbazzar and JediShua running hither, thither, and yon, so the first January 1st episode of TechnoRetro Dads is the perfect time to slow down and take stock of the things that really matter. Fix yourself a bowl of your favorite cereal — maybe even two — and take a break on the first holiday of the new year by kicking back in the recliner, plugging in your earbuds, and tuning in to TechnoRetro Dads.
We Love Our Cereal…
…and General Mills is doing their part to keep it that way. The Big G is making Frosted Flakes magically delicious, providing aging fans of Cinnamon Toast Crunch with the shredded wheat they need in their diet, and Cheerios that are “peachy keen”. PLUS: JediShua’s family makes a cameo appearance on The Daily Blast live from The Cereal Box, Inc.
TRON gets some shout-outs (and interesting ideas) from EarBuds Chris in Arvada and Hasan. SuperFriend Chris Hamilton adds another audio audition for The Voice with a Christmas song with #TechnoRetro flair. Andy Lindemann spots The Star Wars Holiday Special in Supergirl. The Deucecast’s own Michael Nipp uncovers an animated feature from the ‘80s. Original EarBud Kermmit the Frog (Jeremiah) sends an audio message of gratitude. The Cereal Connoisseur posts some Star Wars Christmas gifts. Mike Tarkin of The Sandcrawler watches Christmas morning home movies. SpiderShan pieces together cereal in an exciting way. Twitteriffic Darth Hound gives more insight into Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber from Return of the Jedi. ObiRothKenobi chimes in from the Mixlr Zoo Crew about Magnum P.I. and the Cap’n’s Christmas Crunch. Jeremy, the Spider-Pan from Neverland, reminisces about when E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial came home on video. And the ever-present Chef Armando makes our mailbag tasty as always.
Coming Soon to Theaters
As 2018 rolls out, new movies will be hitting the theaters. From space pirates to superheroes to video games, the number of truly #TechnoRetro movies will keep you in the dark (seated in your favorite seat) all year long.
The new year has begun, EarBuds, and we’ll do our best to bring memories of the past and hope for the future all wrapped up in the present on TechnoRetro Dads. Thanks for listening.
