Didja know October is Eat Country Ham Month? Me neither. But clearly such an important holiday deserves a theme song. Enter Meat Parade, a retro-style novelty record that cheerfully declares “With bacon, knockwurst, ham or lamb – you’ll never beat that meat!”
Way before The Matrix, Point Break, Speed, and John Wick, Keanu Reeves did the ’80s proud with Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. I loved that movie, and true fans will be glad to get hands on a this collectible vinyl LP that has surfaced over at ThinkGeek.
In true ’80s fashion, the record is made from pink and blue vinyl.
Jim Henson released the weird and cool movie Labyrinth back in 1986, and while it wasn’t a huge hit back in the day, it’s gone on to become a classic. Beyond the cool puppetry, one of the most notable things about the flick was David Bowie played the bad guy Goblin King.
Oh man. I have never wanted a turntable so bad. This Star Wars portable record player is awesome. Spin your vinyl with the power of The Force. While this turntable really should have been released back in 1977, it’s here today.

Normally, when I want to relax and block out the sounds of the world, I turn on the White Noise app on my iPhone, and crank it up. But if you want something a little different to help you unwind, check this out.
Designed by Kouichi Okamoto for Kyouei Design, this unique vinyl record is designed to play the sound of rain in a never-ending loop.
Space geeks are going to love this. Remember Carl Sagan’s message for extraterrestrials? Right now it is about 13 billion miles away from Earth aboard the Voyager I spacecraft. Hopefully some aliens (or the crew of the Enterprise) will find it soon.
I don’t care how many versions of the original Star Wars soundtrack you own, you need this latest re-issue of John Williams’ classic soundtrack for A New Hope.
Why, you ask? This time all of your favorite tracks are available on a pair of double-sided picture disc-pressed vinyl records.
Roombas are pretty boring as far as droids go. They don’t beep or bloop or toss you a lightsaber when you need one. They just do one job. Vacuum your floor. Your Roomba may lack R2-D2’s personality, but not for much longer.
Growing up, I was a big fan of ’80s TV shows like the Dukes of Hazzard, Magnum P.I. and a slew of others. In fact, I had the vinyl album of Mike Post theme songs from a bunch of those shows and jammed that record all the time.
Of all the ’80s comedy movies that I watched growing up, Monty Python and the Holy Grail was my favorite. I watched that flick every night for about a month one summer and spent lots of time running around the house speaking in a British accent threatening to fart in people’s general direction.
So what else can we geeks spend our dough on? How about this fantastic line of vinyl figures from Funko? These Star Trek original series characters look adorable and you can choose from Spock, Kirk, Andorian, Scotty, an Orion Slave Girl or a Klingon.
If you ever looked at one of the white Portal sentry turrets and thought it was a blank canvas waiting for a Sharpie, you will love this. ThinkGeek has an 8-inch vinyl DIY sentry turret that comes with an official Aperture Corporation black permanent marker.
