Welcome back once again for another edition of the Retro Round Up! This is where I look back at the previous week here on Retro Ramblings, and look ahead to some stuff I’ve got coming up, as well as throw out some links to some of the cool retro posts and articles I’ve stumbled across on the web recently.
So let’s start with looking back at some of the newest content here on Retro Ramblings. If you haven’t already, I hope you give them a look and leave some of your thoughts and memories in the comments section on each post.
What you may have missed:
Music Monday: Week of February 19 – Eric Vardeman is doing a great job here on the site, and his ongoing look back at the Billboard charts from 35 years ago in 1983, accompanied by playlist, is fascinating. It’s fun to look back at how quickly and slowly some of the iconic songs of the time period rise and fall on the charts.
Forgotten Food: Dr. Pepper Gum of the 1980’s – You all know by now, that one of the most nostalgic things for me is food. Especially food that we no longer have with us, and this post was all about one of my favorite bubble gum’s of the 80’s.
Nintendo Nostalgia: Castlevania 2, Simon’s Quest – A look back at my absolute favorite video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Simon’s Quest.
Nintendo Nostalgia: Retro Ad for the Game Genie – The Game Genie changed the way we played video games back in the day, and in this post I detail the memories of the first time I got my hands on one, and a kick ass old print ad for it to go along with the post.
1983 NBC Saturday Morning Cartoons Lineup – This is one gorgeous ad from the early 80’s detailing all the new and returning cartoons to the Saturday morning lineup in 1983.
Back When Pizza Hut Was An Experience: The Video! – Since the Pizza Hut article has been the biggest smash on the site all time, I thought it was only fitting that it be the subject of my first YouTube video. It’s a video version of the article where I detail all the things that made Pizza Hut great in the 80’s. IF you watch it, do me a solid and subscribe to my channel while you’re there. I’ve got a lot more videos on the way that I don’t think you’ll want to miss.
Retro Round Table: Favorite Television Shows of the 90’s – Some of my friends and colleagues returned once more to share their opinion on a subject, and we tackled our favorite TV shows of the 90’s. Many thanks to Jason Gross, Hoju Koolander, and Eric Vardeman for taking part as always.
