So, if you’re a child of the 70s or 80s, you might remember having or knowing someone that had a Waterbed.
I had one when I was in high school in the 90s and I loved it. It was Cool in the summer and you could heat it in the winter.
And Waterbeds were hugely popular in the 80s and it was a 2 billion dollar industry by 1989, but they quickly lost popularity by the early 90s.
Well, theres a chance it might be coming back, and the original inventor seems to think it will. He’s currently in plans to remarket Waterbeds, and HE Might be on to something here.
Most millennials and kids these days have never seen one, so it might be a fun novelty item, if you can get past some of the horror stories.
And to this day, some cities wont let you put a waterbed in a rental property without taking out special insurance for it. And your screwed if you had one upstairs and it popped a hole in it.
I don’t know, what do you guys think.
Would you buy a waterbed if they became popular again, and have you ever owned one? Let me know what you think.
Then up next in Some TV and Movie News!
The Roseanne Show that’s coming back to TV on March 27th finally released there show Intro, and it’s a cool throwback to the season 1 opening credits.
I think America really needs a Roseanne show right now, so I really hope it does well.
Theres three shows I am hugely interested in this year. The new Cobra Kai, the ROXANNE ROXANNE Biopic on Netflix and this new Roseanne Show.
How you guys feel about it, yall anxious for a Roseanne revival, or am I the only one? Tell me what you think in the comments section.
And then we finally got the FINAL trailer for READY PLAYER ONE, and if you don’t know what its about, your missing out! The movie will be out in theaters on March 29th and from all the trailers I’ve seen, im pretty excited for it.
And next up in some Celebrity news,
If you remember MIKE TEEVEE from the original Willy Wonka Movie that came out in 1971, he was just on the TV show Jeopardy just a few days ago.
He never mentioned on the show that he was the kid that played Mike in the Willy Wonka movie, but people were blowing up twitter when they saw him on there.
He didn’t win the show, but he did end up walking away with 6800, so not too shabby.
Burt Reynolds was sighted recently at a screening of the 1972 film Deliverance in New York City.
He’s 82 and still looks pretty good, although he’s not getting around as well as he once did.
Burt starred in Smokey and the Bandit in 1977 and The Cannon Ball Run in 1981 and if you havent seen either of those, they are must watch TV!
And Hes got a new movie called THE LAST MOVIE STAR coming out at the end of this month.
Next up, TOYS R US just announced they are closing ALL of their stores for good. They’ve already stated liquidating 180 stores and the rest will begin closing down in the coming months.
The company is going to try and save about 200 of the stores by selling them off if they can find a buyer, so theres still a chance that a few stores may survive, but its looking real bad for the toy seller.
Also, if you remember CLAIRES Boutique, that’s in just about ever Mall in America, they are about to file for bankruptcy.
And then on this week in History!
On March 15th 1985, Symbolics.com was the first domain name to ever be registered.
Up to 1992, only 15000 .com domains had been registered, but by 2010, there were over 205 million..
