Unlike, being a day late with U2’s Pop 20 Year Anniversary, we also want to say happy birthday to late Chris Squire who is sadly no longer with us. Chris Squire was the bassist of Yes and played on every album (21 of them from 1969-2014) with the band. Chris Squire sadly passed away due to leukemia on June 27, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. He would be 69 years old today.

For tomorrow, we will have Yes’ “Love Will Find a Way” for next week’s intro vid.

Duck Hunt on VR

If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, most likely you ran into Duck Hunt. When you got your NES for Christmas or your birthday, it likely came with Super Mario Brothers and Duck Hunt, and course, the NES Zapper! When Super Mario frustrated you, you would go to Duck Hunt and give that a try. And after you couldn’t get the duck for the 7th time, the dog would laugh at you.

Augh boy! From Wikipedia
thirty years later, duck hunt on vr

And after 30 years later, Duck Hunt is now on Virtual Reality!

If you got the Oculus Rift, you can get yourself Duck Hunt VR on Android. This was made by Joesph Delgado in February 2016. At the time, he was a student and at the age of 21. So, if your interested in playing Duck Hunt on VR and you have the Oculus Rift, get yourself the app.

Besides, if your a child of the 80s and you have kids, it’s probably better that they try the VR version first. Otherwise:

Rush – Show of Hands

Last week, we had the same slideshow done on Qwick.info. That was suppose to be my slideshow site, but for the most part,  the slideshows I make will be on this site. Qwick will probably have a few not relating to 80s and 90s music or pop culture.
