A few from YouTube this week including one from the Monty Python channel titled "Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python… Galaxy Song (Music Video)."  Enjoy!



Also, from the Evan Atherton YouTube channel, a short film titled "Artoo In Love."



Finally, from the Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube channel comes "Avengers Family Feud" wherein "Jimmy hosts a game of Family Feud with Avengers cast members Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner."

Throwback Thursday - Early 90s PC Sounds, 80s PC Booters, & Kids React 70s Tech

Chris Higgins recently reminded us on mentalfloss.com how labored the sounds of a computer booting up were here, this one a "1993 PC Boot Up."



Working our way back a bit further, check out this list of 1980s "Booter Games" here.  One of my personal favorites was "Suspended: A Cryogenic Nightmare," "an interactive fiction video game written by Michael Berlyn and published by Infocom in 1983."


While we're on the subject, have a chuckle on how Kids React to a 1970s computer.  The screen shot is one explorer's expression while in search of a non-existent "mouse."



A look back at early tabletop hobby gaming
 or gaming-adjacent topics of the past.
