Welcome back for another edition of The Weekly Links! In case you missed the first edition last week and are wondering when the Legend of Zelda review will begin, this is actually a weekly compilation of '80s content posted mainly by other sites. Some stories you'll recognize from RD80s social media feeds from the previous week, while others are new stories I'll be featuring for the first time!
- A new PBS documentary set to air on September 30 will chronicle Journey's quest for a new lead singer back in 2007. "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" will show how Arnel Pineda was chosen for the task based on YouTube videos.
- All I'm gonna say is...if you live near one of these joints, I LOATHE you.
Clueless Gamer Throwback Edition: Atari 2600 - Team Coco
- Clueless Gamer is a series of videos where Conan O'Brien plays a variety of famous video games, some for the first time. In this edition, Conan revisits his teenage years by playing Atari classics like Pitfall, Space Invaders, and the dreaded E.T.
- You might remember when I discovered the Man At Arms series on YouTube. In each episode, Hollwood swordsmith Tony Swatton forges real weapons from famous films and TV shows. His most recent creation ties in well with The Weekly Links logo.
- Old School Tim is back with another interview. This time he catches up with Clark Datchler, singer/songwriter for Johnny Hates Jazz. You may remember their hit "Shattered Dreams" which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1988.
- My most recent column on USF features 10 items I found for a penny plus shipping on Amazon. Among them were an fiber optic LED mohawk, a Captain America face tattoo, and an "I Married a Fart Joke" decal.
