TechnoRetro Dads

As pumpkin spicy as autumn has become, shazbazzar and JediShua still remember the reason the season is called “fall” — falling leaves!  TechnoRetro Dads remember that toys not only grow on trees, they fall from them and can be used to build mountains, forts, or soften jumps from tree limbs.  Plug in your ear buds, EarBuds for an audio excursion into the past with bits of nostalgia and a the possibility of bites from vampires and leave the raking to us!

 

In the NEWS…  

Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock is remastered and returning to HBO soon.  James Bond and Boba Fett would be proud of a current crowdfunding project by JetPack Aviation.  Take a peek at some incredible concept art from the original live action Batman series from the ‘60s.  ThinkGeek presses R2-D2 into action yet again with a coffee maker.  The Beatles live in a LEGO Yellow Submarine.  J.C. Reifenberg pops up with “Scum & Villainy” next spring.

Science Lesson

New York Comic Con was the place to be for Star Wars fans’ science questions about that galaxy far, far away.  Lightsaber tech (including Kylo Ren’s crossguard), hyperspace travel, and planet-obliterating suppressers are all discussed while the tougher questions about jet packs, rocket boots, and astromech communications are left up to the scientific ingenuity of our own JediShua.

History Lesson

Travel through time with DC’s Batman, Flash, and Watchmen.  Flashback to the forties with Highlander.  Flux your capacitor back a year with Back to the Future II.
