Excuse me, are those Bugle Boy jeans you’re wearing?

Is it weird to feel nostalgic about something that you don't really have any business feeling nostalgic about? Like if it's something that was never really meant for you to begin with because you're not its target audience, but you kinda just miss seeing the thing...

Two TMNT Birthdays, 30 Years Apart

As I woke up this morning, dreading the fact that I was turning 40, I started off the day ignoring the influx of Happy Birthday texts and trying to keep a low profile. Then I went downstairs and saw the pile of gifts against a backdrop of TMNT party decorations...

Hi-C: The Box that (Literally) Rocks!

It's not every day you stop by your parents' house to drop off the kids and they randomly hand you a rare artifact from your childhood because they just so happened to clean out the attic over the weekend, but that totally happened to me this past week.  ...

Rediscovering MC Skat Kat and the Stray Mob

Despite having an intense nostalgia for all things ‘80s and ‘90s and constantly feeding this addiction in the form of media hoarding, toy collecting and rare purchases, every now and then I discover forgotten slices of pop culture that somehow managed to completely...

Bike Dancing & Ass Sliding: Timeless

Over at Cult Film Club last week, we covered the classic 1986 BMX movie Rad (which, by the way, has managed in just a few days to become one of the most downloaded episodes we've ever recorded) and, weirdly, I'm starting to see references to the movie pop up...

9 Snobby Foods I Learned About from Watching Movies

As someone who was raised on hot dogs and chicken McNuggets, it wasn't until later in life that I really began to broaden my culinary horizons. Nowadays I love trying new and exotic foods and experimenting with recipes. I've been called a "foodie" before, but I...

Pate in Ace Ventura

I need tiny hands to play these mini arcade cabinets…

Sometime last year (in the spring, maybe? honestly, I've been out of the blogging loop so long, I don't remember) friend, fellow blogger & TMNT fan Tommy over at Top Hat Sasquatch posted some photos of mini arcade cabinets that looked to be the perfect size for...
