Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! In this edition, more reboot news and more stuff turning 30 to make you feel really old! (Oh wait, that's like every week.) Nonetheless, this is the place to get all the re-current events you can handle!
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced it's nominees this week which include several popular acts from the '80s. I'm usually write up an article announcing my votes, but I passed on it this year. I actually excited that Chicago, one of the biggest snubs in Rock Hall history, is finally nominated and is the leading vote getter so far. I hope they finally get the respect they deserve after a lengthy career which included the great revitalization in the '80s. I also voted for The Cars which is a personal favorite plus Cheap Trick, Yes, and The Smiths. Other notables are N.W.A. and Janet Jackson who began there careers in the '80s along with Steve Miller and Chaka Khan who both had an impact during the '80s. Voting is open now at the Rock Hall website.

I'm really enjoying this countdown to Back To The Future day with all of the goodies making waves across the internet. My favorite video this week was an official Jaws 19 spoof trailer that was posted by Universal Pictures. Of course, most remember the famous scene in BTTF Part II when the 3D shark eats Marty in front of the movie theater. This new teaser trailer is a fun tribute...
