We haven’t done this in a while, so I thought I’d share some stuff on my mind, things I’ve come across on my wild trip around the interwebs, and other junk.
First off today, a bit of news on Route 60. As you’ve noticed, we’ve added a few new contributors. I’m so happy that they have come on board. But we need more. If you want to write, we’d love to have you.
With that said, let’s get into the News Roundup. Speaking of News Round up. I don’t like the name of the column. I’m gonna change it. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
SUSHI ON A STICK
Ever just have an overwhelming desire for sushi, but you just didn’t have the time to sit down and eat it? Yeah, me neither. Nonetheless, a company called Popper Foods, has brought “Sushi Poppers” to the market!
I personally could not fathom eating raw fish off of a stick like it’s a popsicle. But then, I don’t really dig on raw fish anyway. But if its your thing, order away!
RETRO RADIO SHACK
Ever wonder what your parents paid for stuff from Radio Shack in 1977? I do. Ever wonder what grandpa paid for those tubes they always had to replace in the tv or for fuses that the old man bought by the gross? Then, I’ve got your answer.
Radio Shack Catalogs is a website that will take you all the way back to the 1930s. You can see in the picture to the left that our parents were NUTS! They paid $719.00 for a freaking receiver and turntable system. You can get a computer for that now. Or an iPad2. Something worthwhile.
In some cases, this website highlights how good capitalism is. If you give high-priced technology long enough, it will come down in price.
SATURDAY MORNING DREAMS
Remember when we were kids and we got up on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons? Remember how awesome that was? Sitting there eating your Lucky Charms, in all their magical deliciousness is such a relished memory in mind.
Well, at some point in the 1990s some freaks in Congress changed it so that only crappy shows could be on Saturday mornings thus ruining the whole morning. Stupid Congress. Always messing things up that are good. First prohibition. Then drugs. Then Saturday mornings.
The one thing they haven’t stolen from us (yet…give them time) is our magically deliciousness. But we’re adults now. We like to take things to the extreme. We can’t just have a cheeseburger. It has to be a Baconator. So, now for extreme lovers of cereal, we get a dream right out of our childhood. NOTHING BUT THE MARSHMALLOWS. That’s right. You can just buy the marshmallows now. Screw the cardboard crap they mix it!
Cerealmarshmallows.com will sell you nothing…..I repeat, NOTHING but the marshmallows.

THE GHOST CAR
