TechnoRetro Dads

Sure, you recognize Mom and Dad are palindromes, but did you notice the racecar?  It was a Toyota.  Yep, that was another one.  It could be expanded in context, too: A Toyota. Race fast, safe car. A Toyota.  Wow, that was long!  And we saw a Jawa sew DNA.  Okay, that really didn’t make much sense, but if it was an offworld Jawa, it might explain something about baby Yoda.  Since this is the last show before Palindrome Day, shazbazzar and JediShua wanted to remind you that next Sunday is 2020.02.02 (or 02.02.2020).  So get busy going backwards and forwards at the same time.  Wait, isn’t that what TechnoRetro Dads is all about?  

 

In the NEWS

 

TechnoRetro Arcade

Nintendo seems to have forgotten Stanley, the hero of Donkey Kong 3.  So have the rest of us, evidently.  Witness the child of Galaga and Donkey Kong below:

Game Shows

From Wheel of Fortune to Jeopardy, game shows have been a part of our lives since childhood.  We remember hosts, games, prizes, and more from shows like Tic Tac Dough, Press Your Luck, Scrabble, Hollywood Squares, $10,000 Pyramid, $25,000 Pyramid, The Price is Right, The Gong Show, Name that Tune, Sale of the Century, Concentration, Card Sharks, Jokers Wild, Win, Lose, or Draw, as well as Double Dare, Remote Control, and Legends of the Hidden Temple.

 

The Road to The Empire Strikes Back

Comic books were essential for the continuing story of Luke Skywalker and his friends after Star Wars left theaters.  Part of the hype leading up to The Empire Strikes Back included catching up with old friends and meeting new ones in the pages of Marvel’s Star Wars comic books.
