    Sorry, I crack myself up hehaa...It's amazing how often ya hear the old video game sounds...For a while it seems like all the sitcoms would show the characters playing something (you never see what), and you'd hear Donkey Kong (Atari or ColecoVision) crossed with other bleeps and blips...Prolly something from a stock sound reel some company made.

    We got 6 inches of snow in north central MD. Now it is freezing rain. I would much rather have snow than ice.

    We've got some snow from before but mostly it's just pretty cold...And they're expecting 1-3 inches in the next 2 days.

Watching a Canadian hoarder house be renovated. They found a Pac Man sleeping bag in great shape.

    ^ LOL! We turned a Pac-Man sleeping blanket into a pair of curtains for the window in our gaming room. :-)

Activision was the rebels that left Atari, and now they seem like they are the villain.

    Remember that Activision is now a totally different company from the one started by the "Fantastic Four" in 1979. It hasn't been the same company since the early 1990s.

    I'm pretty sure that Electronic Arts is the same corporate entity, but even they have gone through many restructurings and leadership changes.

With being snowed in, I should do something constructive, like that TI-99/4A podcast I've been procrastinating.

    Prime is my go-to for all sorts of documentaries. Been watching more of those than movies for years. Truth really can be stranger than fiction!

Soulja boy's console follies was lampooned on SNL. Time to pack it up, it's gone mainstream.

Again, why can't I have a nice meal without my arch nemesis showing up & body slamming me? Is there no peace in the wrestling ring?

    I read that as "body shaming", and I was like.. damn, that's a truly dastardly arch-nemesis!

Okay everyone, we have a complex IT project ahead of us this sprint: We have to unsubscribe tommyg2929geewhiz@htomail.com from this mailing list. Let's do this!

    By "unsubscribe", you certain mean a function to validate that an email address is working and is read, so valuable to save for future spam postings?

Alright, I confess. I worked with Soulja Boy & his console "sales" just as a way to make the world's longest AtariAge forum thread. You caught me.
