Welcome to "Retro Month" at The Thought Corner!
Hey there Thought Corner readers and welcome to a new month and a new concept that should be pretty exciting to those who are into classic cartoons, toys, video games and comic books from the late 70’s, 80’s, and early 90’s, today kicks off Retro Month here at the blog and this is our generic “welcome” post to formally introduce the idea behind everything that will follow. Enjoying it? No? Well, you will, you can trust me on that one.
I’ve had a few people ask me this recently as to why I was dedicating an entire month to classic stuff from my childhood, my simple answer to the question was that I wanted to do it all within a week but with the amount of content I had in store for my readers I wouldn’t have enough time to create and post everything within that allotted amount of time, so one month to revisit my roots was much more practical. Over the course of the month of February I will be posting everything from classic pictures, vintage gaming videos, awesome cartoon intro’s, fun facts, interesting memos, cool commercials and a whole lot of insight, so please, kick back and relax because it’s going to be one hell of a retro-ride down memory lane for some and a burst of “what the hell?” for others. For me, it’s all a part of my childhood and what made being a kid in the 80’s so damn fun, the memories I have of these days of yonder will live with me for a lifetime and in a way I would say that many of the things I loved back then have helped to mold me into the person I am today. Scary isn’t it? Or maybe partly pathetic? Well, I guess you had to be there to understand just how special of a time period it was to be a kid back in the 80’s, or even the early 90’s when retro was beginning to die out and the modern age of everything was quickly taking over, either way I’m confident that this month here at The Thought Corner will give fans of all ages a bit of a nostalgia boost that I feel sometimes we all need.
Reach for the stars and enjoy the ride.
