Peace On Earth

Peace On Earth
Directed by Hugh Harman - MGM (1939)
One of the most important animated features was shown in theaters for the first time in 1939 - the dawn of the Second World War.  It imagines animals rebuilding the world after humanity had finally destroyed itself.  It remains as powerful today as it was almost 80 years ago.

Monte Mart

Monte Mart: 01/01/1983 newspaper ad
Atari 2600
David Calderon shared this ad from 35 years ago on AtariAge.  This was the dawn of the crash, and it's funny to see that all of the sports titles were heavily discounted while the arcade ports were almost $25.  I wonder what the Atari game covers were.

Pickle Slushie

This June, Sonic will not only be selling pickle slushies, but they'll also be allowing guests to add pickle syrup to any other frozen dessert.  Not gonna lie, I will be trying a strawberry pickle milkshake this summer.
