Enjoy the TechnoRetro Dads Spooktacular 2014 in the dark of night if you dare… (You can light a candle if you’re faint of heart.)
With classic tales from shazbazzar’s copy of Troll Records’ 1973 Scary Spooky Stories on vinyl (very retro) and songs from the past as JediShua and shaz go Trick-or-Treating with the next generation in this special edition of TechnoRetro Dads.
Including works by Lucasfilm, Andrew Gold, J. Geils Band, Sparks, Warren Zevon, Tim Curry, Chris Hamilton, Lawrence Grey, and Oingo Boingo. With references and sounds from Fat Albert’s Halloween Special, Witch’s Night Out, Fright Night, The Worst Witch Ever, The Hobbit, and Groovie Ghoulies.
We dare you to listen at midnight.

Hey, Hey, Hey! It’s Halloween Week, and to start it off on this monstrous Monday, JediShua and shazbazzar share some Eggo waffles with their kids (willingly or unwillingly? You decide) while watching the Fat Albert Halloween Special. As always, the Cosby Kids provide some laughs and a lesson for fun’ertainment.
But the TechnoRetro Dads also turn the page in the Star Wars Scrapbook to see what costumes they wore for Halloween — homemade Star Wars costumes, specifically. JediShua was a blonde back then, and shaz has evidently always had an affinity for being fuzzy, so you can probably guess who they might have been back then.
PLUS: Shua the Mad Scientist comes up with intriguing experiments you can do in your home Halloween lab with some of the candy your little goblins bring home from their night of begging from the neighbors in disguise. From Tootsie Roll Pops to marshmallows, C6H22O11 is on the menu and in the lab!
IN THE NEWS: Back to the Future is coming to the future…soon! A beer brewery has managed a hostile takeover of Count Chocula. Colorado welcomes Star Wars music at the symphony.
It’s the last Daylight Saving Monday of TechnoRetro Dads in 2014. Share and Enjoy!

The great Saturday morning tradition of our generation may be over on the airwaves, but we can still pour a bowl of cereal and sit down to watch our favorite cartoons any time we want! This week, shazbazzar and JediShua watch the Jetsons while enjoying some steaming Kellogg’s Pop Tarts. Where is the cereal, you ask? In the cake, of course.
But this is just a taste of what’s up on Monday’s episode of TechnoRetro Dads…
Star Wars Scrapbook.
Atomic Science Lesson.
77 minutes of TechnoRetro goodness!

JediShua and shazbazzar
to see what they might find.
They opened crates and found some toys
that reminded them of being boys,
and something blew their mind.
Lost in time for all these years
a Walkman — music to their ears —
and inside, a cassette.
Shua put in some double “A”s
to find out if this thing still plays…
