Another link-tastic week has past in the world of '80s nostalgia and The Weekly Links is back to sum it all up for you...like a Little Professor calculator! Here is the grand total of what I learned this week:
Reading Rainbow should have never went off the air.
Steve Perry and Phil Collins both came out of retirement...and both sounded a little rusty.
Billy Idol's biography is coming soon, "Writing With Myself" would be my guess at the title.
Viral videos of teenagers dancing to your song at talent shows = More time on Billboard chart.
Drinking with the Golden Girls has never been more fun.
"Ghoststoppers" and "Ghostblasters" were alternate names for Ghostbusters.
Science is easier to understand using video games.
This week's Video of the Week came courtesy Mashable and features some great facts about Mario and how he came to be. For instance, I had no idea he was the result of Nintendo failing to make a Popeye video game. Apparently, Donkey Kong was originally supposed to feature Popeye trying to rescue Olive Oyl from Bluto. Learn more by watching the video below and enjoy the rest of this week's links!
