Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! Christmas season is in full swing as the big day is now less than 2 weeks away. This week I took my holiday cheer over to the Retro-Daze website and shared an article about the father of vacations, Clark Griswold. I identified 8 meltdowns that finally guided Clark to his 'Christmas Vacation', some of which were subtle while others were more outlandish.
Hope you guys enjoyed the fun list of forgotten '80s children's Christmas albums here this week. I remember listening to a couple of them I had as a kid when they were your main source of on-demand Christmas entertainment. I also posted a quick review of the Pitfall app I just recently discovered. The original remains one of my favorites for the Atari 2600, but I thought the new game was a nice addition to the "endless runner" style games that have become popular over the last couple years.
My favorite video this week is the tale of one man's overboard obsession with DeLorean cars. Not only does he own a Back To The Future Time Machine replica, but he also has custom DeLoreans that have been made into limousine, monster truck, and convertible versions! Check it out!
