Some additions:

We found a 80’s arcade site where you can play games:

80’s Arcade

 

On our sister site, Qwick, we made a slideshow called Noteworthy Baseball Flicks of the 90s:

Play Ball!

We are looking for podcasts that talk about the 80s and the 90s, we are currently working on our list! We should have it up by next week.

An article about Pac-Man, upcoming news, and a correction

CHOMP CHOMP!

I stumbled upon this article about Pac-Man, thought this maybe of interest to our site visitors, here it goes:

The weird history of Pac-Man

Upcoming 90’s Baseball slideshow

Just like the above link, we are working on a slideshow, but only with baseball flicks of the 90’s. We will have that up this weekend.

Corrections

One great hit for this site here is our Kirby article that I put out last week. It brought this site a lot of hits and I’ll make more of these short term articles. Sadly, I made a few mistakes in this article. One that I’ve been told a few times on was Kirby’s original color is white, I said it was pink. There are a couple of other errors on that article. That’s the problem with doing articles on the fly without the research.

So, how about a good 90’s hood movie reference towards me on this one:

Site Updates & Additions

Finally found some time (and some motivation) to update 80s and 90s with a site update. Been a while, heh? Well, I think the average site visitor here doesn’t care too much of my personal life so I won’t bore you with the details.

Intro Vid Change

We decided to go 80s with our intro vid, you’ll now see Guns N Roses “Sweet Child o’ Mine” as your intro (if you visit this site on your computer or some tablets). It was a little painful to bump “Black Hole Sun” by Soundgarden out of there.

Goodies, Music & Television

We also added a link a piece with 80s N 90s Goodies and Music. For music, we added Billboard Top Songs of the 80’s. As of this post, the list currently has 199 songs with no missing items. If you have some time on your hands, definitely take a look at that.

You miss TV? Before Netflix and other many on-demand channels came to our lives? Well, with Nameless.TV, you can watch TV again. Nameless also has a Nostalgia channel with a mix of music videos, 80’s and 90’s cartoons and shows. Nameless can be a little inconvenient though, for instance, it’s YouTube dependent. So if a copyright claim comes up with YouTube and the video is off of the internet, Nameless will also show the static.

I was watching the channel earlier and a episode of Doug was taken off of YouTube and I had to wait 11 minutes for the next show to come on. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

 

Radio Station Links

It’s been a while, heh? We have now added Radio Station links to our site. Just click or better yet, hover over links and Radio Stations will pop up. With my personal life, I’ll be getting a week or two off work and I plan on adding more to this site. Something I’ve been failing at lately…

If there is other 80s or 90s Radio Stations I failed to mention, let me know on Twitter: @RobbeeWrite

Visiting the 80s Fest in Frankenmuth

the 80s fest in Frankenmuth

Saturday 29th of April, I travelled an hour and 20 minutes from my hometown of Sterling Heights to Frankenmuth. Around the last weekend of each April, Frankenmuth throws a 80s party to help benefit cancer research. It’s been a while since I have attended an 80s gig and I thought I should go, for my own enjoyment and for this site.

Square Pegz and Slick JimmY

The 80s party had it’s own tent and also a large garage where the bands played. I attended Saturday’s show, which had a Flint-based band called Slick Jimmy. The band did not have a keyboard players so all the synths were pre-recorded to go along with the performance. The headliners were a Detroit-based 80s band known as Square Pegz. Here they are in the 2015 80s Fest, wished I was there:

The tent also contained a Rec Room where many 80s toys were there for one’s view. They also had an Atari, Nintendo and Sega Genesis hooked up to old TVs for one’s gaming pleasure.

The place got crowded around 8:30p and it’s just would be hard to get around. But despite my hatred for being in a small place with a shitload of people, I was happy as hell. Lots of Henry’s Hard Orange Soda to boot (I had 4 or 5) and 80s music playing all day. I never wanted it to end. I wanna go next year, the 80s Fest in Frankenmuth is highly recommended for all who love the 80s.

Bands:

Square Pegz

Slick Jimmy

 

Here are some additional photos of the fest, with some of them containing my ugly-ass self too:

 

 

 

Intro Vid Change and Upcoming Frankenmuth 80s Fest post

Devo’s “Whip It” will be this week’s Intro Vid. It was also one of the songs performed by Square Pegz at the Frankenmuth 80s Fest in Michigan. I was one of the attendants.

Honoring Randy Rhoads and site news

Randy Rhoads

For this week’s Intro Vid, we will be having Ozzy Osbourne’s “Mr. Crowley” as the vid. We are doing this to honor Randy Rhoads who sadly passed away 35 years ago today.

And here’s the song:

Randy Rhoads was with Quiet Riot and later would join Ozzy Osbourne when he launched his solo career after his exit from Black Sabbath. Rhoads played guitar for both Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. ¬†All of the songs in those two albums had a Rhoads co-credit to it along with Ozzy (minus “Dee” from Blizzard or Ozz, which was written by Rhoads himself).

Sadly, Rhoads and two others were killed in a plane crash on March 19, 1982.

SITE NEWS

The lack of updates is due to an upcoming slideshow we are making featuring 80s super groups. We should have the slideshow ready on Thursday. Sorry for not being around.

 

Downtime

From around midnight EST to noon on Feb 17th 2017, the site was down. It was an mistake due to some technical issues with the domain. Sorry for the inconvenience.
