There is no shortage of Star Wars mashup videos littered across the internet and they are normally of the “watch once and forget” variety. However, those of you with a certain nostalgia for 80′s TV shows and their ever-so-catchy theme tunes might enjoy what the Star Wars Mashup Channel has put together on Youtube.
Get ready for Star Wars visuals mixed to the intros of The Love Boat, MacGyver, Airwolf (Imperials and Rebels!), the A-Team and Dallas!
If you like these, check out the Star Wars Battle Tribute on the same channel which mixes The Prodigy track Voodoo People to various battles from the Star Wars saga.
I remember, late in the 80′s, receiving my first skateboard. For a young boy this was a rite of passage, marking the time when I was no longer a small boy, I was now old enough and brave enough to travel like a teenager!
Except I was terrible at it. Sure, I could move around ok, but speed, skill and bravery, all eluded me. So imagine my joy when my parents bought me a member of the Skateboard Gang!
These friction racers were exactly what all grown ups thought skateboarders looked like – loud, brash and overly colourful – and for many weeks, I was happy to forget about my trials with the real thing as I sent my racer up and down the included ramp.
But then, for me at least, the trend faded and skateboards were no longer fun. Which meant my toy, the leader Ollie McTwist, was no longer wanted. Who knows what happened to him? Hopefully he found his way to a good home, perhaps to someone who owned his friends Total Lee Cool, I Soar and Roxanne Roller.
Hey creeps and ghouls, it’s your ol’ pal The Ouija Board Kid, Daniel XIII here to give you the low down on a little action packed documentary (which just so happens to feature illustrations from my poison pen) coming your way soon entitled “My Name Is…Jonah”!
While the fine fiends behind the film have threatened to not pay me our agreed upon price of 5 fresh souls, a subscription to Grit, and that groovy pendant filled with dirt from Dracula’s castle if I divulge too much about the film, I can tell you that “My Name Is…Jonah” is story of a man with a thousand yard stare who lives life on the razor’s edge (while dressed as the Punisher and other assorted fictional characters).
I can also tell you that the film will have its world premiere at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA on March 27th at 7:45pm as part of The Boston Underground Film Festival! So why not stop by and check it out…and who knows, maybe even yours cruelly will crawl from my crypt to join you there!
Welcome back friends to Retro Radio Memories! For your listening pleasure today we have an episode from the classic Suspense Radio Show series entitled “The Night Man” that originally aired back on October 26, 1944 on the CBS Radio Network.
Today’s episode deals with a young woman named Miss Rhodes, played by Virginia Bruce (Jane Eyre, The Invisible Woman), and she has a dilemma on her hands to say the least. She is visiting the Warden of a prison to inquire about an inmate named Tom Nixon, who is supposedly incarcerated at the institution. I say supposedly because Miss Rhodes is afraid for her life, you see she testified against the man as he was accused of killing her Mother…but if Tom Nixon is safely behind bars at the prison why does the young woman keep seeing him working the elevator in her building?
So turn down the lights, grab your favorite beverage and travel back with Retro Radio Memories as we pay a call on the Night Man!
