Had enough football yet? Of course you have! Modern media beats everything to death. But just in case you needed even more football action than you can find on ESPN and the Networks, Retroist friend Mr. Sweet and I got together to talk about the not-nearly-loved-enough classic 1977 film Black […]
Yes, we all remember and treasure Freedom Rock, but how about Hey Love? Its line, “No, my brother, you’ve got to buy your own,” is every bit as good as “Well, turn it up man!” Don’t believe me? Watch this.
Amazon.com recommendations are hit and miss for me. A couple of weeks ago, they got a hit. They recommended a little ebook called The A-Z of the Atari 2600 (Retro Gaming A-Z) by Justin Kyle. The A-Z of the Atari 2600 is pretty much like my own ANESthetized. While ANESthetized […]
I got my Christmas shopping done well in advance this year (thanks much to Flack for suggesting Cyber Monday), but I wanted to pick up a few extra surprises for Hot Pink Heather and my daughter, so I swung into the local Walgreens. There wasn’t much to get there, and […]

Before he was Matlock, and after he was Sheriff Taylor, he was…well, I don’t know who Andy Griffith was in this one. I just know he was in it and it was about a junkman trying to do an independent flight into space for the purpose of recovering salvage. That […]
I just love Worlds of Wonder’s Class Act line of school products (as I have already mentioned here). I finally managed to get my hands on what I consider to be the flagship of the line, the Express-It locker answering machine. Here’s an unboxing. And in case you forgot the […]
I recently bought Hot Pink Heather a crochet kit. It had some needles and other tools and a “How To Crochet” book. As I bought it, though, I had a vague memory of some commercial about a device that created little knitted circles that could be combined to make a […]
We’ve talked a lot about Tim-Mee plastic figures on Retroist.com. Recently, I got my hands on some new Tim-Mee recasts. The first thing I got was two bags of Galaxy Laser Team figures. I had received a bag of these figures before, but they were black and gray. These new […]
