TechnoRetro Dads
Hey, Hey, Hey....it's Hasbro!

Hey, hey, hey, it’s TechnoRetro Dads.

The Lantern City illustrated novel is hitting mailboxes this week after their introduction at SDCC, new Hasbro Star Wars figures are hitting retail, and the Ewok Adventure hits some highs and lows in this week’s TechnoRetro Dads.

This week is The Final Countdown to the launch of MTV (that’s Music Television to those of you who have the mistaken idea that it’s about reality TV).

So get out your Honeycomb cereal and sit down with Bill Cosby for a Saturday morning viewing of Fat Albert (after spending seventy-seven minutes with shazbazzar and JediShua, of course).

Greetings, Programs! 

With San Diego Comic Con behind us and Celebration Europe II coming this weekend, this week’s podcast is filled to the brim with news, history, and tips that will help you enjoy your time at conventions (and movies) even more. 

TRON is back in the news, along with a reboot of The Black Hole.  Of course, we have some Star Wars news and lots of our favorite (and fun) things from the 70s and 80s.  So start your work week on the right foot (which may be your left foot, if you’re marching) with a larger-than-life episode of TechnoRetro Dads.

Finally, we turn the interview tables on Jimmy Mac of RebelForce Radio (and a host of other podcasts on the Shotglass Digital network) and get a RetroSpective of what makes the legendary podcaster tick.  

Obi-Wan is in the news (and in a mind control history lesson as well), Shaun Cassidy is #1, Martian Night Life, and a fantasy story that never ends.

Gushing about George Lucas?  Of course.  Plus, shazbazzar and JediShua go Monster watching with their families and end up in an extended look at pixels, er, rather, Pixar.  Plus, a look at some video games and video game movies.

All this, and Aluminum Boy, too!  Before you head off to work this morning, make sure to download TechnoRetro Dads.  It just makes Mondays better!

He fights for Truth, Justice, and the American Way (at least that used to be his motto -- he is from Kansas, anyway).  We talk Man of Steel with one of the foremost Superman fans online, Steve Glosson from Geek Out Loud! 

With current news about some blasts from the past, this holiday week episode takes us back to the days when we were kids, anxiously awaiting the first launches of sky bombs and fireworks on the Fourth of July.  

Filmmaker Sheldon Norton, a frequent panelist on TRON: Decoding the Grid, tells us more about his current project, Shikoba Falls.

So step into your dancing shoes, strap on your red cape, and climb into your cylon-centric Pontiac Firebird as we hustle into a shorter work week (if you’re living in the United States) with a brand new episode of TechnoRetro Dads. Thanks for joining us this week!


(Oh, and it's a little long this week.)
