I am literally sick because of this dumb hot weather. It hurts being hot. Fan running, window open, nothing helps. It's like an oven.

"The Video Game Years" on Amazon video is like "I love the 80s" on VH1, but all video game.

My wife just said that Aerosmith should have made the song "Wah! Wah! You look like a baby!"

    I remember Casey Kasem introducing the Thompson Twins -- "there are 3 of them, and one of them is black!"

We're watching the new Lost in Space program on Netflix. He asks for an 11/16th's wrench to repair something. Um, I would hope their ship is all metric.

    Spoiler alert: In the last episode, how does Doctor Smith get into the airlock? She's just there. And why are some episodes just have the title and others have a stupid opening? And when the truck flips over and traps that guy, then why didn't they just use the cable and flip the truck all of the way over to the other side so that the holes would be facing up (so some fuel is left)? and why did they replace most of the white guys with minorities?

    If you binge on Netflix it skips over the intro, but you can rewind and watch it from the beginning if you want to

    At very least, I also plan to buy a (Downgrade) convertor to go from HDMI to RCA...So I can try some stuff out on my CRT too! Like NES/SNES Classic, Genesis HD FB, Atari HD FB ...

    I might get one of those Atari Flashbacks if I can find a salvage unit on ShopGoodwill. Got a good deal on that crappy Genesis last month.

Continuing my delve into late series 7800 games. Amazing that Atari Corp tried to link Alien Brigade and Planet Smashers together. The difference in quality between the two is pretty astonishing

Wish my favorite FM oldies station would quit playing The Cure. Didn't like them in the 80's and don't like them now. I'll take Culture Club over them any day and yet, you never hear CC on this station. :-(

Here's an excellent cover of The Great Mighty Poo theme! https://soundcloud.com/kawabounga/bullshit It just may be the best song I have heard from the past 20 years. (This is including Ryan and Daryl Mitiska from Apocalypse Cartoons.)

    They probably got a better bulk price on the cartridge shells if they bought a larger volume...

    possibly, but given the crazy failure of them it probably didn't matter. The worst thing is, the pv1000 is fairly unique hardware, the pv2000 is another colecovision/msx/sg1000

    Love them! Immediately took to their first album when it debut'd BITD. Same with Oribson's Mystery Girl. Hats off to Lynne for getting all that talent together and encouraging Orbison to record again. Some of my favorite tunes of all time on those albums.
