List O' Links for Friday, July 29, 2016

This is the last weekend of July, so the summer of 2016 is getting grayer at the temples. Enjoy the summer sizzle with these links!

Did you know that back in 1963, before they hit worldwide acclaim, the Rolling Stones wrote and recorded a jingle for Rick Krispies to air in the UK? Now you do!

Techno Luddites lament! This month, the last company making VCRs is discontinuing production. Truly the end of an era. Now how will be play those old VHS copies of License to Drive?

1990s nostalgia is underrepresented at my blog, so here's a step in correcting that oversight. Here are ten 1990s cartoons you may not remember. See if they give your memory a jog!

Nintendo is making a mini version of their classic home video game system with 60 games built into the system. Want!

Finally, remember earlier when I said this summer's days are numbered? That means we're that much closer to Halloween (you will now see a Halloween countdown counter along the right side of the blog), an annual major celebration here at the blog. One man wishes to take Halloween celebration a step further. He wants Halloween to be declared a federal holiday.  Unfortunately for him, his petition didn't garner nearly the signatures necessary to be addressed by the government. Better luck next year!

Have a great weekend!
