Advanced Dungeons and Dragons on the Intellivision held some mystic for me when I was a kid. First of all when I was little Dungeons and Dragons had a weird aura of danger and mystery surrounding it thanks to all the weirdos who thought it could lead you into Satanism.
AT&T thought it had a view on the future with it’s spots depicting the future in the early 90s, but this video tops that in spades. Behold the future as envisioned in 1969!
Got to love the gender roles in this one. Man pays the bills and the woman does the [...]
I loved the 90s. I mean, as much as I loved the 80s, I probably love the 1990s more. I really came of age in the 1990s. I graduated high school, got my first car, started going to college, grew my first beard, and lost my virginity. That’s a lot of big [...]
I’ve once again rekindled my romance for the 1989 Batman film. At the start of it all was a preview magazine, then it just spiraled out of control with comics, toys, trading cards, and even play acting scenes from the film with another nerdy kid that summer.

Hey kids! It’s been awhile since I posted a Saturday Morning cartoon, but I’ve been in a Star Wars mood ever since getting into a Star Wars RPG group. What better way to observe a fine Saturday morning than to post one of the two cartoons from the mid-1980s featuring Star Wars characters? Click and [...]
Continuing She-Ra week, I guess, is a cool commercial for She-Ra’s faithful steed, Swift Wind. Swift Wind was the equivalent of He-Man’s buddy Battle Cat. Much like Battle Cat who goes around in day to day life as his alter-ego Cringer, Swift Wind is a normal horse named Spirit before She-Ra swings her mighty sword [...]
One of the most highly anticipated toys for the last year or so is now in our household, the brand spanking new Masters of the Universe Classics She-Ra. I know what you’re thinking, isn’t She-Ra for girls?! Well sort of, but the She-Ra in question actually belongs to Babette, so stuff it. Still, if there [...]
I know this one has already made the rounds, but I was so amazed by it that I had to share it here again. This jungle gym is inspired by Return of the Jedi in that it’s got a friggen speeder bike for a swing. Other nice touches are the “computer” and the futuristic [...]
