    Remembering Blockbuster

    Remembering Blockbuster

    When I think of being a kid back in the late 90s, I think of things like Velcro shoes and matching Reebok tracksuits. But I also think of things like VCR and the beloved Blockbuster Video stores. Yeah, that's right. That really did happen. And what a beautiful time that was. You know, before the whole digital era came marching along and destroyed it all that is. That's sort of when we all became these fat lazy bastards who can't so much as pick up a remote without sighing in disbelief.

    'Rainbow Brite;' Let's Go to Rainbow Land

    'Rainbow Brite;' Let's Go to Rainbow Land

    As a child, a favourite of mine was the bright and colourful world of Rainbow Brite. A young girl called Wisp is brought to a grey, dull land, with a mission to bring colour to the fictitious world, by locating the Sphere of Light. She befriends a furry Sprite creature called Twink and a horse called Starlite. They come across a baby, who Wisp discovers is the key to her mission. The adventure begins…

    Were You a Cabbage Patch Kids Mummy?

    Were You a Cabbage Patch Kids Mummy?

    The Cabbage Patch Kids were the biggest toy fad of the 1980s. The most successful toy doll in the history of the toy industry. Every little girl wanted one. It was a must have Christmas present. Parents would search the shops for a Cabbage Patch Kid doll, which sold out very quickly! A riot even broke out in a shop, a week before Christmas in 1983; it made the front cover of Newsweek.

    Homosexual Themes in 'The Merchant of Venice'

    Homosexual Themes in 'The Merchant of Venice'

    William Shakespeare made many well known popular plays throughout his life which are still relevant because of their themes and characters. Shakespeare’s play, The Merchant of Venice, has given rise to many disputes about whether one of its main characters, Antonio, is possibly gay. Antonio is a Venetian merchant who spends most of his time throughout the play glued to Bassanio because of a bond. But this isn’t all about Antonio. Portia’s sexuality is a question as well. She has sent many suitors away because she doesn’t want to marry them. Is this because she is not yet ready to marry or for other reasons that she is trying to keep secret? Does Shakespeare do this on purpose to play with readers minds?

    The Old Time Radio Revival of the 70s

    The Old Time Radio Revival of the 70s

    During the 1970s, there had been a renewed interest in radio dramas that were a result of nostalgia that occurred after the release of the movie American Graffiti in 1974. The movie depicted the life of teenagers in 1950s America and was directed by George Lucas. With this in mind, Hyman Brown, a producer himself, decided to pitch an idea to CBS Radio. Brown had produced radio dramas during radio's golden era and decided that a new generation of listener might tune in. He drew from his experience from shows such as The Inner Sanctum Mysteries and The Adventures of Nero Wolfe. Therefore he created The CBS Radio Mystery Theater, a nightly radio drama that ranged from supernatural horror to science fiction stories in light of his past productions. There were also other producers who wanted to try their luck at making radio dramas. While CBSRMT was the heavy hitter of revived dramas, there were two shorter-lived series which will be discussed in this post.

    Mickey Mouse at 90

    Mickey Mouse at 90

    What a fascinating magazine. I love all things Disney and I learned so much. It was interesting to see how he got started and how all the different characters came to be. I also loved how some characters names got changed and are different now. It’s cool to see how many Mickey Mouse clubs there were. This magazine was expensive but worth it!

    Disney-fied: Rapunzel

    Tangled is a great Disney movie with the iconic girl with long hair and her love of painting. The original tale, by the Brothers Grimm is much darker.
