    Searching through the alleys for useful knowledge in the city of Nostalgia. Huge cinema fanatic and sometimes carrier of the flame for the weirding ways of 80’s gaming, toys, and television. When his wife lets him he is quite happy sitting in the corner eating buckets of beef jerky.

  • Brian Boone

    From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion at I feel about “Back to the Future” the way you feel about “Star Wars.” Also, I’m married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).

  • Claymation Werewolf
    Email | Twitter | Facebook
    Dedicated fan of puppets, horror and classic animation. Fueled by nostalgia and driven to spread my own brand of “truth” to the fandom. Remember playing as a kid and trying to tell a coherent story with totally mismatched, unrelated toys? It’s like that….of the mind!

    Sass Wagon (or Dana, if you prefer formality) grew up in Pennsylvania in the 80s and 90s. She kinda needs a haircut.

  • Critanime

    I grew up in the magical 8-bit era of computers and consoles. I saw the games crash and saw the recovery from it with the NES. I will always have my trusty C64 in my office and when the need arises I will pop a tape in the Datasette and play some classic games. With a wealth of knowledge, especially on old-school rpg’s, I hope to bring it to you. The viewers of

    Mashísmo was a bicentennial baby and a child of the ’80s. He grew into his ears and out of his awkward phase (glasses AND headgear!), but never truly grew up.

  • Daniel Th1rte3n

    Daniel Th1rte3n: equally at home at a seance as he is behind the keyboard. Raised on a steady diet of Son of Satan comics, Kaiju flicks and Count Chocula comes the proprietor of The House of Thirteen Doors. What arcane knowledge lurks behind the preternatural eyes of the Ouija board kid?

  • Badwolf
    Email | Twitter | Facebook
    In the last annum of the baby-boom, I grew up just outside New York City on black and white television, Schwinn Sting-Rays, and Bosco. We didn’t have bicycle helmets, use seat belts, and a 45 was a record, not something you shot; Album artwork mattered, and people used and broke vintage Pyrex everyday (except it wasn’t VINTAGE back then – just Pyrex). I am aestheitcly-driven, and today I search the American Southwest for things that strike my fancy.

  • The Six Million Dollar Jedi
    Email | Twitter | Facebook
    The Six Million Dollar Jedi combines his two favorite franchises from the 1970s to make a better, stronger, faster Jedi. A child of the 1970s and 1980s, his love of retro toys, movies, TV shows, music, video games and pop culture help fuel his quest to keep the past present.
