Recurrent Events 1/29/16: DeLorean Back In Production, Mean Joe Greene Reunites With Coke Kid, Nicktoons Movie

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! In case you don't follow RD80s on Twitter or Tumblr, you might have missed that I joined Vine! I've been messing around alot with GIFs and creating some supercut videos for YouTube that I finally decided to check out Vine. It makes it easy to share those short type of videos and I've been reposting them to Twitter and Tumblr so hopefully you'll follow RD80s on Vine. You can also find all of the social media links to RD80s in the footer of the website.

I've decided to put the Recurrent Events podcast on a short hiatus. Long story short, my weeknights have been more hectic lately so I might move the recording time to the weekend and release the podcast separate from the website roundup. I'm trying to work out the details, but please stay subscribed to the podcast on your favorite app like StitcheriTunes, and TuneIn. We'll get back on track hopefully in the near future!

I'm also going to launch a couple giveaways before too long so be on the lookout to win some free stuff! I managed to publish a few articles this week so go check out any you might have missed:

The most retro and rad video I watched this week came to me via the A.V. Club and shows Vin Diesel pitching Street Sharks figures. I don't know who has it in for Vin with all these throwback videos of him like breakdancing and stuff, but PLEASE DON'T STOP.
