Now this is some 90s Nostalgia people! Below is a clip from when Conan O’Brien (back in his Late Night days) visited Teen Beat Magazine (Oh yeah, Teen Beat Magazine!) too achieve his dream of being a Teen Idol.

This video has all the 90s stuff you want: Posters of Leonardo DiCaprio, references to The Backstreet Boys, Hanson and Planet Hollywood, 90s style clothing and an interview with then teen idol David Gallagher! Yes David Gallagher! Formally of the hit TV show 7th Heaven and current guy who just served you your pumpkin latte at Starbucks. Enjoy!

Fraggle Rock

Fraggle Rock! One of my all time favourite shows growing up with one of the catchiest theme songs ever and it took till now to write a post on it! Sadly it was the passing of Gerard Parkes (or Doc as we knew him on Fraggle Rock) this past weekend to make me realize we have never done a post on one of the most Nostalgic shows of my generation.

Fraggle Rock (which ran from 1983-1987) was another one of Jim Henson’s great creations. Not quite Sesame Street and not quite The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock was a different than anything else on TV. It didn’t have the educational value of say Sesame Street or the comedic value of The Muppet Show, but it found a home in wholesome family entertainment. I loved everything about this show growing up…then I got older…

Sadly, a few years back I re-visited Fraggle Rock and found it does not hold up for me as an adult. That said, when I have kids (and/or finally lose that paternity suit) I will no doubt be introducing my kids to this show. And now the theme song. Enjoy!

Street Fighter II: Angry Goat Edition

21 Oct

http://thefunnybeaver.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/street-fighter-angry-goat-editio.jpg

This is a pretty well done video mixing the sound effects, music and top screen from Street Fighter II to a video of an angry goat taking out his frustration on the world. Even if this video wasn’t funny (which it is) the music alone is enough to give you a huge rush of Nostalgia. Enjoy!

Art: Giant Scrap Metal Hulk Sculpture

20 Oct

An artist out of Thailand has created this pretty impressive Hulk sculpture made entirely from scrap metal. Oh sure, people are impressed with this but not my drawings? It’s all a popularity contest if you ask me.
