Welcome to your weekly source for retro pop culture news, the new Recurrent Events! It's Friday the 13th and also my birthday, so allow me to slash my way through this week's best headlines. I'm looking forward to a night on the town tonight having a birthday, a happy birthday. James Bond movies are always released in November so it's usually customary to go see the latest flick on my birthday. I noticed this morning that Spectre is a whopping 2.5 hours so the wife and I will get some extra time away from the kids!
Something had to go wrong on Friday the 13th. I uploaded today's podcast last night but apparently my host site chopped it into little bits and buried it in the backyard. However, it is finally live! I had a great time this week with 3 new guest hosts who were very entertaining and also made great points. Take a listen!
This week's podcast topics include Nintendo's plan for mobile games, The Joy of Painting taking residency on Twitch, Spy Hunter movie rumors, Guns N' Roses original lineup reuniting, Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter comeback, and the Baywatch movie reboot. Guests are Erik Tukey (@BoulderHillNet), Rob O'Hara (@Commodork), and Classick (@ClassickMateria). Stream the latest episode above or visit the Recurrent Events Podcast webpage. You can also subscribe to the podcast on Stitcher or iTunes.
I'm a big sports fan and enjoy the ESPN "30 for 30" documentaries. This week College Humor released a parody documentary imagining if Rocky IV had taken place for real. I found it very entertaining, even using commentary from actual ESPN personalities. Well deserving of the Video of the Week!
