In case there's anyone else out there trolling around for stuff to do online this holiday season, here are a few things I thought I'd share:
-X-Entertainment Christmas Countdown or just surf the site and relive your favorite 80s memories.
-Episode 1 review. You've probably already seen this, but just in case here you go again. The real question is... did you watch all 70 minutes of it?!
-Misfits of Science.
-MAMEs and ROMs. I'm about ten years too late to this party, but I'm putting THIS up for anyone who, like me, was daunted by the many different formats but was compelled by a sudden need to play the arcade version of Splatterhouse.
-Egg City Radio - Fill in the blanks of your Post Punk library.
-Face Can't Be Felt - mixtape. Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana. What else do you need to know.
-1001 Books - Fill in your literary blanks and follow the evolution of the novel.
-Rolling Stone 500 Albums - Get angry at what was left out. Nod in agreement at a few surprise listings. Learn about a few albums you never quite got around to checking out.
-Wishbook Web - Didn't get what you wanted for Christmas...in 1985? What about 1966? This place has several wishbooks from 1933-1988. Great for revisiting the pangs of Christmas disappointment of years past. Or for raw material for a late night eBay binge.
