The 80s Weekly - Issue 34
Operation Wolf returns as a VR game, Peter Gabriel releases new single, new Mega Eternia Battleground Set and a Tiny Toy Giveaway.
There are some big happenings in my family this coming week so the next issue will be released May 21st. My oldest son graduates from high school this week and then the following day, the two of us will be road-tripping 1,000 miles to surprise my Dad for his 80th birthday. Of course, Mother’s Day is also next Sunday so I’m excited to personally deliver flowers to her as well. It’s an exciting time in life and as I get older, it’s these kind of moments we all need to celebrate and treasure.
See you in two weeks and stay rad, everyone! - Jason
