Writing Prompt: Retronomicon

Let’s go retro! I’m hoping most of you will go with a horror tale (Lovecraftian ideally) to honour the Necronomicon whose name was violated for this prompt’s title, but if you really can’t embrace the genre do what you like. Pick two of these retro items and incorporate them into the story. For a walk on the wild side use the random number generator to select them for you.

Or go for a crazy spin on retro, like what was retro back in the 80s, or the 1880s?

Don’t forget to post on your site and link to it in the comments, or at least comment that you gave it a bash.
