Hello, my name is Ryan Barnett and I'm a 36 year old, living in Dayton, OH.  My hobbies are what you see on this website.  I love movies, animation, and video games.  I also love to write, so this site is dedicated to those passions.  I want to show the younger people of this generation where pop culture truly began and how wonderful a time it was for stories from that era.  And I also invite my fellow retro brothers and sisters to journey along with me as I revisit these wonderful memories.  If I can make just one person smile and say "Hey, I remember that!" or "That looks cool, let's check it out!"  then it really does make what I'm doing all the more worth it.  So come with down the Yellow Brick Road of Nostalgia.  This is The Journey of a Retro Nerd.
