Beneath your feet a superheated maelstrom is churning, burning, yearning to be borne to the surface through a crack in the crust and carried to new heights in a funnel-shaped mountain in hopes of bursting forth into our cruel, cool world. Magma, lava, it’s all the same — just a different location. Tune in for explosive eruptions on TechnoRetro Dads as we explore the hot topic of volcanoes.
In the NEWS
Nik Wallenda walks across the mouth of a volcano . . . on a tightrope. And he did it just in time to be featured on this volcanic episode of TechnoRetro Dads. Yep. We’re that hot!
We Love Our Cereal…
…even in pancakes. And the world seems to agree. Cap’n Crunch has a new Berrytastic Pancake Mix you can make at home. Or, if flipping flapjacks sounds like too much work, you can go to IHOP and enjoy their cereal pancakes. Swiss Miss will soon release Lucky Charms hot chocolate you can heat over the cone of a volcano (if you’re daring). Florida girl is a cereal hero who continues collecting boxes of cereal for the less fortunate in the Tampa area.
Joe Versus The Volcano
Thirty years ago, Tom Hanks was connived into agreeing to jump into a volcano for Lloyd Bridges because Robert Stack clouded his mind through masterful manipulation. And just when it seemed that things couldn’t get any stranger, Meg Ryan showed up with Meg Ryan and Meg Ryan — all of whom were more than a tad bit interested in Tom Hanks. Add some orange soda and an island big enough for Abe Vigoda and Nathan Lane and you’ve got a match Vegas would love to see. In the aftermath of Mike Tyson vs. Buster Douglas, we were given a red hot battle in Joe Versus the Volcano.
TechnoRetro Arcade: Volcanoes in Video Games
Whether it was the never-changing vector-graphic volcano in Battlezone or “Lethal Lava Land” in Mario 64, we lava the explosive eruptions and magmaficently brilliant digital flows in video games at home and in the arcade.
