Welcome to the Recurrent Events weekly news update for retro pop culture headlines, links, videos, and more! February is here which means Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. RD80s will be participating again with our friends Lee and Linz of Pop Rewind for another round of '80s Valentines We'd Like To Receive. I've had so much fun each year creating these and can't wait to share mine and see what the PR peeps have come up with too!
There is another Twitter Giveaway currently running through Feb 7 featuring an '80s Adventure Prize Pack! Click over to the contest tweetand retweet it to gain an entry. Also be sure you follow RD80s. One lucky winner will get DVDs of The Goonies and D & D The Animated Series: Beginnings, a Raiders of the Lost Ark wax pack, and 3 vintage Choose Your Own Adventure books!
