The Brig: Princess Leia was NOT a Hologram (with Holographer Travis Paquin)

A fascinating discussion with the talented artist behind Laserboy Holo about lasers, science fiction and all things Holographic!

In a follow up discussion about holographs and holograms, we sit down for a chat with the talented artist behind Laserboy Holo, Travis Paquin! We cover many things, including how a hologram is made, what Polaroid had to do with the medium's prevalence in the 80s and why Travis chooses to make his own holographic film! There's also some stuff about sci-fi movies thrown in for that retro flavor!

Stop by the laserboyholo shop and contact Travis for custom made holograms! He's literally one of only a handful of artists still working in the medium today!

And you can watch videos of his process here!

S3E12 - Ep 062: Toys with Holograms / We Got Rub Sign!

Forget karate chop action... in the 1980s, holograms were all the rage!

In the late 1980s, holograms were considered to be wondrous things of high futurism--a blend of art and science, of 3 dimensional magic and lasers. In short, they were really cool and absolutely freaking everywhere.

In this episode, we try our best to explain a little about what holography is and how holograms are made. Then we'll spotlight four retro toy lines which incorporated the technology... Transformers, Battle Beasts, Super Naturals & Visionaries!

And later on, Nintenjoe will spotlight some Super C enemies, with his first ever DIE MONSTER!

S3E10 - Ep 060: Nintendo Hard / The Triumphant Return of Nintenjoe

Our 3rd host, Nintenjoe returns to the show as we spotlight some of the most difficult NES games ever made!

The man, the myth, our wayward third host... NINTENJOE is finally back!

The term Nintendo Hard has been used to describe video games that are especially challenging (Dark Souls for one). For this momentous episode, we'll spotlight some seriously hard video games on the original Nintendo. Some of these games are beloved classics and others are more obscure, but make no mistake... there isn't a cake walk in the bunch!

Later on, we'll read the answers to an OCTOPONDER THIS question we posted all the was back on May 20th! And finally, Parasite Steve will try hijacking one of 8-Bit Alchemy's classic B Segments from season 1!
