Welcome to the Recurrent Events weekly news update for retro pop culture headlines, links, videos, and more! Happy New Year! A great first week to 2017 with no high profile celebrity deaths and plenty of news to spread. A new Memory Jogger podcast was just released on our old VHS recordings that I hope you'll listen to soon. I'm also glad I just became a Hulu subscriber as you can tell from the headlines this week.

Here are some recent RD80s articles posted in cased you missed them:
Every wonder how the Nintendo Zapper works? Wonder know more with this video that I found courtesy io9 from The 8-Bit Guy. What further blew my mind was that player 2 on the NES could control the ducks on Duck Hunt...never knew that!
