TechnoRetro Dads

Chris Hamilton kicks off this Monday morning with a little ditty called, “Mamma’s in the Minivan” from his Boogie Child album.  And that’s just the beginning of the insanity this week, since "Talk Like a Pirate Day” is coming up Wednesday and the ‘Dads are already getting into the spirit of things by stealing several minutes from this week’s show in their high seas hijinks!  Whether you feel like Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Hook, or Captain Power, you’re sure to feel the waves breaking the ocean of the internet with this very odd episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

 

In the NEWS

Henry Cavill gets an opportunity to continue being the villain with rumors that his cape has been torn away from him as Superman stands to be recast.  Jonathan Clark (no, shaz, not the one from Man of Steel) gets down to boogie with other retro celebrities on Dancing with the Stars.  Sir Paul McCartney churns out yet another album with Egypt Station.  Nerdist suggests a fun drink for your Monster Cereal Tiki cups.

 

We Love Our Cereal…

…and young Oliver does, too!  However, both the ‘Dads and the Roving Spoonster question this youth’s taste in cereals.  But that’s not the big cereal news this week.  Nope.  The big news is that Oliver found an eight inch bran flake in his cereal box!  Huge.

 

TechnoRetro Arcade

Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future is a blend of ‘80s TV show, action figures and toys, and interactive video game.  One of several “blast the screen” interactive games that gained some popularity in the mid- to late-eighties, Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future merged live-action television with electronic plug-in gaming for additional excitement for your Saturday mornings.  Thanks to Jedi Holmes for introducing us to this one!   

 

Feedback

Derek (Raising Fangirls) remembers NFL Quarterback Club for Nintendo64.  Jorbex rebukes us for not remembering “Weird” Al Yankovic’s UHF.  Kendall remembers the local UHF channel.  Fettmatic, Jorbex, and Joey all chime in with their lunch box memories.
