Model rocket launch at 1500. Don't be late.

Is there a good online repository for technology geek ephemera from the 80s? I'm thinking of a teenage kid in his 80s bedroom holding a soldering iron, working on a hobby project next to his C64. Would love to see imagery, video, back issues of magazines, whatever.

Some Kinda Fun?..anybody?

The band Teenage Head was HUGE when I was in highschool in the early 80's. Were they popular anywhere outside of Southern Ontario?

What from the '80s was actually good?

I'm a child of the '80s, and I loved the '80s. However, I didn't develop a sense of good taste until about 1994, and as a result my pop-culture radar is completely jammed with crappy cartoons designed to sell toys, cereal commercials, and Ewoks. Can you recommend totally awesome movies/TV shows/etc. that will satisfy my '80s nostalgia, but are good enough to watch today? [more inside]

Sebastian and the Prince

Back in the 1980s on Nickelodeon, a pair of cartoons - The Little Prince and Belle and Sebastian - that ran back to back (at least, in memory). I'm not sure either ever went to sindication in any meaningful way, so how am I supposed to get my hands on them?
