As a gaming history geek, it was a very exciting weekend. For years, I have been reading of the rise and fall of Atari and the gaming industry. Many myths and legends have been spoken of over the years, some true and some not. It's not everyday that we get a rare chance to see someone figure out a myth, and front the cost for it. Perhaps one of the biggest myths that was solved this weekend was the infamous 'Atari Landfill Burial of ET.'
I have, and always will be a KISS ARMY member till the day I am laid to rest. I'm only 26, so I was not around when KISS hit the scene in 1973, but I remember watching a movie featuring these guys in war paint named "Detroit Rock City." Seeing the spectacle of this band got me hooked on them. I quickly wanted everything KISS, including vinyl albums. I remember where I got my first album too!
We have been teasing for a while now about how we MAYBE have FRONT ROW tickets to Bryan Adams: The Bare Bones Tour. Well, the jig is up! We actually have one pair of tickets to the show for FRONT ROW! Here is how you win!
I typed a nice little retrospective of Studio 28 today and it's imminent destruction. While finding some research on the old theater, I found an amazing website that features all types of great pictures of Michigan Drive-Ins, Malls, Beaches, and more spanning from the 30's all the way up to the 80's!
Studio 28 was quite the awesome movie theater. I saw a ton of movies there, and hold a lot of memories there to. Sadly, but understandably, the historical old theater will be demolished within the next few weeks.
I was born in 1987. Around this time in video gaming, the Nintendo Entertainment System was dominating the video game market and everyone at the time already forgot about that wood paneled console named Atari 2600. Bleeps and Boops on the screen, and squares battling squares. It was primitive, but for it's time, it was groundbreaking.
George Thorogood & The Destroyers have been rockin' for four decades. These are the guys who gave us "Bad to the Bone," "I Drink Alone," "Who Do You Love?" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." This is ultimate classic rock with metal along with some blues and country mashed in.
The band's 40th anniversary tour kicks off Feb. 27 in Las Vegas. While it doesn't have any Michigan dates, it has a July 12 concert at Blue Chip Casino & Hotel in Michigan City, Ind.
