Retro Daze 5th Anniversery Goodie pack should include

A Printed version of the favorite article list with something from the writers on how they found the site along with a reflection since then on how they made it to where they are now. 

A special Tshirt design

An item from the 70s, 80s, and 90s

Maybe something for the long time writers like a certificate or a "I was there from the start" 

Maybe a movie or two voted on by the users.

I think that this would be pretty awesome.

Maybe for the favorite articles, do a "Best of the the First 5 Years", and publish that collection of articles as a Kindle book or something.

I'm surprised this has been collecting dust.

21 of those drafts are mine. Surprisingly only one is a Wolverine article.

This is quite a milestone and thanks to Vaporman87 for giving us a retro-clubhouse to play in all these years.

I liked the idea of a special theater broadcast, but understanding the time constraints, what if we give Tony a break on the production side and each of us created a 2-3 minute segment for it? We could call it the RetroDaze 5 Year Film Festival!

It could be something simple like a video tour of your retro collections, an original retro-themed skit, maybe an action figure movie or for people like Benjanime an animated segment. Whatever you want to throw together. 

I would be happy to coordinate and edit the footage, if anybody wants to participate. Then I'll send the final file to Tony and we can all log into the theater one night and comment on the fun.

I'll create a thread and see what develops.
