Recurrent Events: Guns N' Roses Announce Tour, The Hoff Joins 'Baywatch' Film, New 'MacGyver' Actor Revealed

Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the Recurrent Events! Did you watch Pee-Wee's Big Holiday on Netflix? I didn't get a chance to post a formal review, but I enjoyed it. I was surprised that it was more of its own movie and didn't really harken back to the other films or TV show. I'm not sure if that helped or hurt it, but we found it enjoyable.

If you are a Dukes of Hazzard fan, enter this Lego General Lee Giveaway from the Dukes Collector blog! Also, vote in the championship round of 1986 Movie Madness hosted by Old School 80s! Will the winner be Ferris Bueller's Day Off or Top Gun?

Here are the articles posted on RD80s since the last Recurrent Events in case you missed any:

The video of the week is a mashup of numerous cartoon intros of the 80s into one glorious original intro. It's 4 minutes of nostalgia that was truly fun to watch. There is some NSFW language so be careful when you play it.
