Episode 60 - GamePro's Celebrity Video Gamers from August and September of 1991. Anyone who grew up in North America in the 80's and early 90's should instantly recognize JD Roth as the host of both Fun House and GamePro TV. As a means of promotion their new show, GamePro put out this one-off issue looking at some of the popular young stars of the day and what games they played.
Celebrities included in this magazine include Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone), Mayim Bialik and Joey Lawrence (Blossom), Christina Ricci (The Addams Family), Candace Cameron & Jodi Sweetin (Full House), and many more!
- I have had this magazine for probably 2 years, because it never felt like the right time to do the episode. Not sure what changed, but I'm glad that I finally did it because I think it turned out great.
The "face cam" footage is still very grainy. I am told that perhaps I need to update the firmware in my GoPro. Also possible: the GoPro just isn't the right camera for this application. Though I did have not one but two video lights blasting me in the face.
Also be sure to check out my other channel, where I do live streams, nostalgic musings about childhood in the 80's, and even the occasional collection video.
