Valentine's Day is only two days away, so call me cupid because I'm here to spread the '80s love in this edition of The Weekly Links! This past week contained many sweet videos and articles and I've taken this opportunity to wrap them all up in a bright red box and remove any with a nasty orange cream filling. Yuck!
If you haven't taken the most recent RD80s Challenge, I invite you to check it out. I've listed 50 romantic comedies from the '80s for you to see how many you have watched. If you are planning a movie night for Valentine's Day, share it with you significant other to help find some rom coms that you both haven't seen! (Guaranteed to be better than sitting through 3 hours of Titanic again.)
Now, this week's TWL Video of the Week will let you experience "Tainted Love" like you never have before (courtesy The Laughing Squid.)
- This story surfaced this past week with many people asking themselves..."really?" At this point, I think it's highly unlikely that Perry would unite or even tour with Journey again. If it does happen, I could see him joining up for a few songs at like the Grammys or something. If your a fan, you are probably used to these rumors popping up every year.
- I never had an Intellivision growing up, but those who did (or still do) will appreciate this list. Glad to see one of my all time faves Q*Bert made the list. Also check out their top ten list of Sega Master System games that was also released this week. Now those I know because I had a SMS console!
- I'm a huge INXS fan and can't wait to watch this when it becomes available in the US. Can't say I'm surprised that one of Australia's most famous bands beat out the Sochi Winter Olympics in their TV ratings.
- Was good to see Annie and Dave back together during the Beatles tribute concert at the Grammys. Not sure how long this video will be available as the one featured in the article has already been deleted.
- And speaking of inventions, some of these Apple designs from the '80s are downright incredible. It's amazing to think that a flip phone and and touch screen Macbook were actually first designed in the early '80s.
