Last week our “Roundtable Voltron” discussed how far we’ve come since childhood in the 1980s. From the outset, we decided to break our discussion into 6 distinct topics:
- Video Games – from Atari 2600 to XBox 360
- Movies – from Three Amigos! to Anchorman
- Personal Communication – from letter writing to texting/tweeting/Facebook
- TV – from ALF to Alcatraz
- Comics/Toys/Games – from 5 points of articulation to today
- Wrestling – from Saturday morning Superstars to Monday Night Raw
In Episode #19 we got through the first 3, in Episode #2o it was drinks on Googs as we return for part 2 (TV, Comics/Toys/Games, Wrestling). We touch on the sensitive nature of the meaning behind our site’s name as well.
Join us for another stroll down memory lane (with the typical number of detours). A sample of what we discussed:
