Ages before Mr Hotness himself, Chris Evans, took on the role of Captain America and brought the comic book character a new round of popularity. Cap starred in two TV movies in the late 1970s – Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon. I’m a bit too young to have seen these but Google tells me it’s true 😉
They are both incredibly cheesy movies with the patriotic hero busting a red, white and blue motorcycle out of the back of a vintage van. Lots of action, lots of old school. This was the ORIGINAL Captain America motorcycle.
I don’t think i’ve done a #VintageGeek post this year. NAUGHTY KIRSTY.
Last year we featured the likes of Darkwing Duck, Full House, Gummie Bears and even Widget the World Watcher. If you don’t remember these shows you missed out as a kid, this is what i grew up on. Every Saturday morning i’d be super excited to get up and tune into KTV, and my parents were super excited cause i’d shut up for a few hours. Everybody won 😉
This show came out a bit later in my childhood and was a bit more mind-numbing than the rest, but i did watch it. Guilty.
I’m a bit of a hoodie collector. Most girls are into shoes, i’m more into ridiculous looking hoodies that make me look like a university student. Each to their own i guess. I’ve been saving these hoodies into the geek inventory one by one and i’m finally at 20, though that was enough to completely blow your mind in one blog post.
I want to wear every single one of these sweaters on my body AT ONCE.
And my personal best.
This one i don’t actually want but it was too good to leave off the list. You’ll see why.
This might just be the scariest picture i’ve ever seen.
Sweet sweater bro.
Congrats for making it all the way to Friday without having a break down. First week of work done and dusted, only two hundred to go 😉
A super creative bunch of guys called Cinefix created this short film replicating the Pulp Fiction movie. We all know Pulp Fiction right? Anyways, just a little gift from the internet to you to say HAPPY FRIDAY 8-Bit style…
He-Man wasn’t on my list of favourite cartoons growing up but i’ve had a few requests to feature him in our vintage geek section. I think this cartoon was a bit before my time as it ran into the 80’s when my mother still controlled my TV schedule but the characters lived long after that. You can still find He-Man bobbleheads in your local nerd shops.
I am a little sad that i never bonded with Battle Cat, the sweetest tiger in all the land. maybe that’s why i’m not the biggest cat fan now. Anyways there are still crazed fan sites dedicated to He-Man so he must have been big for some people. Were you a He-Man fan? If you were i hope this video takes you away from your time sheets for a minute and back to Eternia.
By the Power of Grayskull, I HAVE THE POWER!
Happy Friday guuuuuys! If you dig the #VintageGeek vibe then make sure you keep following…
We haven’t done a #VintageGeek post in a while. This one isn’t cartoon based but goddammit it brings back some AWESOME memories. Watch this right now, it’s a guaranteed feel good 😉
Do these guys have the sweetest clothes or what!?
It’s been a while since i’ve done a #VintageGeek post – they always make me so happy so i thought i’d do one again. This blast from the past is a fairly well known one but i’m sure it will bring back magical memories Although i used to watch the show religiously i couldn’t seem to remember any of the characters names. Terrible i know. I ran a quick Google search (as you do) and realised that they all had really lame names, whats up with that?
I’ve listed their names below but watch the intro video first, it’s bound to cheer up your morning…
Gummi Bears from left to right: Cubbi, Sunni, Gruffi, Zummi, Tummi, Grammi.
SHOTGUN Cubbi! Except i would rename him to “Pink Grizzly”, that would be a cooler name. Anyone remember why all their names rhyme?
