206: Old Men Talking

3/9/2018

A terrific and sad read about Ichiro Suzuki. Jon suggests the Star Wars Force Bands for the Sphero. The OP-1 keyboard from Teenage Engineering looks pretty cool, but expensive. Their Pocket Operators are pretty cool, too, at $50. This thread that started with a girl who likes Star Wars is terrific. Back in the day, we had to rely on toys like The StarBird. Jon had the Magnavox Odyssey and Moltz had the Fairchild Channel F. The Big Trak is probably the closest '70s analog to the...

Jon speaks highly of Black Panther. What type of flu do you have? Should a kid with rumpled hair and pants too small for him raise red flags? The Olympics feature the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Leslie Jones's Olympics twitter coverage is the thrill of victory.
