The internet of the 1990s! Do you remember America Online (AOL) and Netscape Navigator? Who remembers Ask Jeeves and the early versions of Internet Explorer? There was nothing like hearing that static noise coming from your modem before connecting on a dial-up connection. The 90’s references in this video were amazing, as cheesy as the acting was! I remember the first time that I discovered … Continue reading Reflecting On The Internet Of The 1990s!
The smoke cleared, the dust settled. A triumphant Link mounted Epona his horse, with the battle-tested Master Sword now resting in his sheath. It was a hard fought war in the land of Hyrule, with the evil Gannon finally destroyed and the three Triforce fragments united. Peace had once again returned to the land. As he rode across the lush green pastures of Hyrule Field, … Continue reading How Legends Are Made Part 3- Destiny Unfolds..

Being thankful is so underrated these days. I think back to my childhood growing up. I was an 80’s baby, born in 1983 yet I can remember it like it was yesterday. Thanksgiving at my mother’s house was always a great time. The nostalgic smell of roasted turkey, ham, macaroni and cheese, fresh collard greens, candied yams, cornbread, and so much more fills my nostrils … Continue reading The Giving Of Thanks, By V.R.
I’m like a yellow pizza pie with one slice taken out/ I flow around eating pellets and making sounds with my mouth/ I hit the arcade’s with much success in the 1980’s/ I’m so successful that that my sequels we’re starring my lady/ Who has that pretty bow in her head but don’t let her appearance fool you/ When it comes to clearing stages her … Continue reading Pac-Man Poetry By V.R.
Listen up everyone i have a story to tell/ About 4 heroes, who happen to be in a half shell/ Their names for short are Leo, Mikey, Donny, and Raphael/ Turtles that are teenage mutants from the sewers that smell/ We met up with April O’ Neil who reported that crime/ Is sharply increasing, because of this group called the foot clan/ Led by the … Continue reading TMNT Poem- The Tale Of 4 Heroes In A Half Shell
I have always admired people with talent that are not afraid of thinking outside the box when using their gifts. After watching this medley, i was highly impressed! The combination of instrumentation with their vocals creates a feeling of both retro and modern nostalgia! I watched this video several times! The transition of the songs are excellent, and i love the costumes they created for … Continue reading The Superb Mario Medley Is Truly Superb!
Dear Link, Wow, I’m speechless! It amazes me that despite the fact you stay so occupied from the harsh realities of battle in Hyrule, that you still make time to write me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me such a priority in your life.
