TechnoRetro Dads

 

Greetings, Programs!  

Do you remember what you were doing twenty-five years ago?  It was the Year of the Bat when Michael Keaton called into question the weight of Kim Basinger, Jack Nicholson agitated Jack Palance, Jek Porkins was a scoundrel, and Lando was the District Attorney.  (And Two-Face could have been a much smoother criminal....)  

 

JediShua and shazbazzar share BATMAN with their families, finding it just as relevant today as it was back in 1989.  The Dark Knight was darker then than in the 60s, but not nearly as dark as he has become in this century.  Take a trip back in time to relive the hype and hoopla of Tim Burton’s vision with the music of Danny Elfman and Prince.  

PLUS: News about some TechnoRetro favorites becoming movies, a Super 8 reel released, the BATMAN ride at Six Flags Over Georgia, and a SCIENCE LESSON from two moons!

As highly improbable as it is to have a show this magnanimously big, it is not, in fact, infinitely improbable and therefore you will not need any additional drives to your listening device.  However, should any problems arise, feel free to address your complaints to the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Complaints Division, where your needs will be addressed promptly.

 

The Lazy Book Club is abuzz with excitement from various parts of the globe as Mark Newbold (a really hoopy frood who really knows where his towel is), Paul Bateman (who could be your plastic pal who is really fun to be with), and Dr. Jorbex (the second greatest computer in the universe of time and space) join shazbazzar and JediShua for a very worthwhile conversation about the most successful book ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

PLUS: News, Feedback from our Ear Buds, and a few commercials as well.

Greetings, Programs!

Happy Day After Father’s Day.  Hopefully your day was filled with memories of Dad, making memories with Dad, or being honored as Dad.  But every Monday is TechnoRetro Dads‘ Day -- with cereal, cartoons, news, and nostalgia to enjoy.

 

 

The TechnoRetro Dads Theme Park Summer continues as we take the plunge at the water parks of our past and present when we were kids and with our kids.  So get ready to ride the slides with shazbazzar and JediShua in wet and wild memories of Coney Island, Water World, and Six Flags - White Water.

Greetings, Programs!

This week we talk about Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  From 3D simulators to full-scale roller coasters, Universal Studios left the studios behind to become a full-fledged Theme Park (with E.T. and Mel’s Diner).  We bring out some toys from the midway games at the parks of our youth to talk about carnival games and their prizes.

PLUS: Experiences from the Alabama Phoenix Festival, news about guests at Pensacon 2015, JediShua trains karate padawans, and Star Wars gets some new female faces.
