Throw Back

Throw Back Thursday! Anyone remember these guys and their awesome Saturday morning show? How many of us wanted to be taken into our TVs and live in a video game world???


Detroit Robocop Statue

 

After a successful KickStarter campaign Detroit will be getting a 10 foot tall bronze Robocop statue to look after the city. The crowd funding program raised $67,436 in a short 6 days. Now I know what some of you might be thinking…Isn’t there a better use for this money in Detroit besides making a statue of Robocop? Well I’m sure there is always a better use for money with few exceptions, but this could be a big moral booster and could bring the city closer together.

The statue will be unveiled next summer just after the Robocop reboot will be released into theaters. The project has the backing of original Robocop actor Peter Weller and will most likely be located somewhere on Wayne State University’s TechTown campus. I think that is probably a good spot for it since my question was; If it were placed in front of town hall, how long would it take before it was vandalized?

Venus Bronze Works in Detroit will help cast the statue with help from Warren Ally Foundry and Edgewise Forge. So what do you think Nerd Nation? Do you think this is a good thing for the city of Detroit or should the money have been used elsewhere? Let us know your thoughts below or on our Facebook page.

British Ninja Turtles

I’m sorry to say that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just don’t seem to have the same impact with British accents. Still good for a few chuckles though. Besides, it’s Thursday and this is sort of a throw back…at least with the Ninja Turtles movie. This is still one of my favorite movies of all time. Anyways, check out this funny video of the British Ninja Turtles dubbed by Paul Benton

It’s the mutts nuts!!!
