The Great Book of 1980's Trivia by Bill O'Neill

The Great Book of 1980's Like myself, you may believe that you know everything about the 80s. But how much do you really know? Well, let me introduce you to a fantastic book that will teach you and test your knowledge of the great decade.  The Great Book of 1980's Trivia: Crazy Random Facts & 80's Trivia (Volume 1) by Bill O'Neill is available as a paperback, audio book and Kindle edition, and the printed edition features 198 pages, and the Kindle version has 185 pages. There are 10 chapters (one for each year) and each one starts by covering the major events of that year. Before we get to the main chapters, there is an introduction, followed by The Reagan Presidency Defines the Eighties, Reagonomics and American Greed, Economic Disparity and Homelessness, Drugs and Aids, The environment, Social Issues, and Culture, and World Politics.  From the offset, it's clear that this book isn't going to only deal with the fun side of the 1980s by covering pop music, t

Yes, it's that time of year again (I swear it comes around quicker the older you get!) and it's time to dig out your ugly Christmas jumper again!

Best Atari Logo Hoodies for Men

White Atari Hoodie for Men Atari were one of the biggest and best-known video game and computer/console manufacturers in the 1980s. You can pay homage to the golden age of video gaming with my pick of the best Atari Fuji logo themed hoodies for men.   2022 is the year that Atari celebrates it's 50th birthday, and so my first choice is this celebration hoodie which features the classic Atari joystick and '72 text to mark the year they were born. This official item comes in blue and black for sizes up to XXL for men.   Firstly, we have this official hoodie featuring a red Atari fuji logo and name which is available directly from the Atari store on Amazon. It comes in three colours; black, grey and white. My personal favourite is the grey one, which has a sporty gym look. It can be bought in sizes from small to XXL   My next choice is very similar and officially licensed, but this pullover hoodie features the text "Atari Games" in white with the logo. The colour choi
