A cop singing Ave Maria accompanied by his Power Ranger son. Can’t say our employee Christmas party is boring.
@nerdyartist braved Hot Topic to get me the limited edition, double picture disc vinyl release of the Breaking Bad soundtrack as an early Christmas gift. That’s love, folks.

If you want to show what the 70’s were like, combining Bruce Lee and Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell into one image is a hell of a way to start.
A conversation pit is an architectural feature that incorporates built-in seating into a depressed section of flooring within a larger room. This area often has a table in the center as well. The seats typically face each other in a centrally focused fashion, bringing the occupants closer together than free-standing tables and chairs normally would.
In residential design this proximity facilitates comfortable human conversation, dinner parties, and table top games. Their disadvantages include accidental falls and uncomfortable interactions with those standing above in the main room.
I think we should bring back conversation pits! Tell me this isn’t cool.
For more record book nostalgia, check out my podcast, When You Hear This Sound, where I present the full soundtrack from a different record book or storybook album on every episode. I even scan in the pages of the book to give you the full experience!

Today when I get home I am going to play my Star Wars recoerd
First things first: This drawing? It’s excellent, young me. Here we have a fairly detailed X-Wing engaging a pair of TIE fighters (they both look like Vader’s ride, but that’s cool). PLUS, the X-wing is evading defensive fire from the Death Star itself.
This is a solid A, young me. It would have been an A+, only I took off points for the unforced spelling error and the TIE tweaks. So for the most part, The Force is with you.
I don’t remember exactly which Star Wars record(s) we had back in the day. However, I assume this entry is because the confusing narrative and general crappitude of the holiday special sent you scrambling to the crates to dig up a Star Wars experience that Did Not Suck.
Because in the days before every parent handed their kid an iPad to keep them busy — before seat-back DVD players and even VHS tapes — the best substitute for the movie itself was a read-along record.
The records were like old-time radio serials (a format that suited Star Wars quite well), where the actors performed lines of dialogue along with music and sound effects. The modern innovation was that the records often came with a comic or short illustrated book so kids could read along with the action.
See! Hear! READ.
The ’70s were a heinous realm indeed. To experience a movie at home, you were served up different data streams and had to assemble it yourself.
And sometimes? Sometimes the stories were non-canonical.
Like Han would ever let R2 pilot the Falcon. Pfft.
