RetroPlay Edition 6 Curated by Phil

Phil needs a vacation. We’re gonna make him take one because he’s shot almost every single band on Edition 6 of RetroPlay for content we’re putting together for our relaunch as a more useful destination for insight on art, fashion, culture, and technology. Enjoy!

RetroPlay: Edition 4, Curated by Phil

retroplay edition 4

Phil is our tireless in-house Director, reporter, and man-about-town whose home base is in the Bay. Our request for him to curate Edition 4 of RetroPlay was met with a threat that the list would be nothing but back to back Lady Gaga. Thankfully, Phil’s bark is worse thank his bite. 

Sit back, press play, and enter the aural realm of the overworked and spectacularly talented Phil Nacionales

Spring’s over. Summer’s here. And we need a break

Summer Time

Ah, summertime. The days are sunnier, warmer, and longer and thankfully so, since there’s so many fun and exciting things to do. We’re taking this time to relax, think about Retro, and hang out on the rooftop with a kiddie pool and a grill.

Oh, we’ll still be posting, just not as regularly. We’re going to use this free time time to the fullest. And like the kid who gets a summer project to take back to school in the fall, we’re going to be doing lots of thinking about how to bring you a re-vamped, re-energized, and re-envisioned Retrospective.

From all of us at The Retrospective, have a great summer.

A New Doctor for a New Generation

June 7th, 2010 by

Doctor Who is the property of the BBC

What a challenge! Cast a 27 year old in an iconic British role usually filled by a 35-40 year old experienced British actor. That is the challenge that Steven Moffat and the new writing team of Doctor Who have put in front of themselves. Already I’m a fan of this new Doctor portrayed by Matt Smith who showcases an old soul of the classic Doctor’s like Tom Baker but the brash attitude of a young punk rocker.
