Yes, I know the park was demolished a few years ago. Yes, I know the park had become run-down, and, at times, seemed more like "gansta day care" than an amusement park for families.
However, I grew up with Astroworld, even before Six Flags owned the park. When I heard the powers that be were going to turn out the lights on the park for good, I was sad. Things change though, and the park is gone. So be it.
Here is a link to an Astroworld tribute site, containing additional links to an assortment of great photos from Astroworld's past.
I've been reading information about a sequel to TRON for some time on the Internet. It looks like they're finally going to make it. I loved seeing TRON for the first time in 1982. With today's technology, this new TRON film should look incredible.

Pull the poles from your collective keisters!
A proposal to ban Halloween and Valentine's Day? What uniquely Russian holidays do you intend to replace them with? Great Purge Day? Gulag Day (that alone could replace Halloween). Oh wait, I know: We Lost the Moon Race Day!

Nothing more Maalox-inducing than pumping damn near 1 trillion dollars into a bailout we're not even sure will work. Read here. Here's hoping they get it right! Meanwhile, CEO's left & right will be pulling those corporate ripcords.

Again, click the GIF and save it. Where the heck this came from is beyond me! The little girl looks Asian, so perhaps it came from Japan.

Ford creates a 65 MPG diesel car, but claims they can't sell it in the U.S., due to "hostility" towards diesel fuel. I'm willing to bet if Ford offered 2,000 of these new Festivas, they would roll off the lot in record time!
R.I.P. Ford Motor Corporation. Both you and GM.
This is one cool experiment, but the doom prediction nuts are hard at work, claiming the earth will blow up, or an uncontrollable black hole will form and eat half the solar system. Well, we'll never know until we flip the switch, will we?!

It appears the final curtain is about to fall on the famed Astroland amusement park at Coney Island, NY. Despite this, both the Cyclone roller coaster will live on, which is more than I can say for the late Texas Cyclone.
