  1. Does your city have a bike-share? Have you used it?

  2. On eBay, one seller is offering the RC2 Animalympics DVD - available on amazon.de for 10.49 - for US$ 31.99. Gosh, the Euro must be soaring...

  3. Plugged in a friend's Master System today using my Genesis 1 RGB cable with 3.5mm breakout for stereo. Since the Master System has no headphone port, there was no audio but I had the idea to plug the breakout jack into my phone. Pretty neat to play whatever song we wanted over the game.

  4. United haven't made an offer for Ibrahimovic. That does it. Get rid of Van Gaal AND Woodward NOW!

  5. Took a chance on an untested, Sanyo Betacord at Goodwill today. Thing works like a champ!

      I just checked eBay for Betamax hardware and whoah the prices have skyrocketed. Should tell my parents since my father should still have a Betamax VCR or two.

  6. Welsh in the top 10 sexiest accents in the world. Just one question ... which one? For such a small country, we have too many accents. There's a local girl on the radio and she sounds amazing but I've never liked the 'Gladys Pugh' valleys accent that most people seem to associate with Wales.

  7. Into the eagles nest XE :http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/121961914123?

  8. Work is progressing quickly on last star fighter Jag. Rendering the flat shaded polys are relatively easy with just the star field in the background.

  9. Saw Batman v Superman last night in a mostly-empty theater. Spoiler-free review coming soon.

  10. "..so far it hasn't surfaced, but I'm sure it exists, it just takes a while to travel from your head to your fists.."

  11. If I start a band, I'll name our first album "____'s greatest hits". Then every song would be a hit!

      I'd name my band "Unknown Artist", the first Album "Unknown Album" and the tracks should be named "Track01", "Track02" and so forth...

  12. $160 for a Sega CD. Yes or no? I keep seeing it there in the store.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Thorsten Günther

      The Mega CD (European here :)) games values vary wildly - the FMV titles are not considered valuable at all, while the Shmups (e.g. Robo Aleste and Keio Flying Squadron) are considered very rare and collectable.

  13. I'm a Numanoid. I love Gary Numan (no homo). For something different I picked my top 10 Gary Numan songs of all time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmQIepQqoWg what's your favorite Gary Numan song?

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Thorsten Günther

      Hard to pick a single one, but mine would be "The Skin Game".

  14. Just ordered a CD on eBay from Germany. Apparently this will be the first copy of the CD to enter the US? Thankfully music CDs have no stupid regions.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Some German CDs (mostly titles of 2002/2003) also had protection schemes, e.g. Wolfsheim's "Casting Shadows" or Rammstein's "Feuer frei" EP. I bought the US release (by Metropoils) of the former to avoid any hassle (and could resist buying the EP, since this was one of the few Rammstein EPS lacking a non-album track), and negative press and boycotts made the industry drop protection schemes soon afterwards.

  15. Postal Jeeps seem all gone around here. Maybe I should try a Yugo for a 'different' vehicle.

  16. Thankfully, we Germans have no sense of homour, otherwise I'd laugh ass off watching this:

      In that case: LMAO! Oh, the full version is also on Youtube:

  17. The only Atari that gets less love than the Jaguar (the XEGS,) Is actually one of Atari's best consoles.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Thorsten Günther

      The point about the XEGS is that it was pointless. A 65XE/800XE (depending on where you lived) came at a lower price tag, had a smaller footprint on your desk and always came with the keyboard that was essential for many games.

  18. Took a friend to Midwest FurFest to celebrate their birthday. They had a fantastic time, describing it as the best birthday ever.

  19. The fifth season of "The Walking Dead" finally starts being broadcast free-to-air on Halloween here in Germany.

  20. Is there a decent home version of Battlezone (on an Atari console or computer?)

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Thorsten Günther

      On the A8, I consider Alienbusters by Blackfire! Software the only decent version, on the ST there's an official Atari version that seems decent, on the TT030 Cbzone runs smoothly.

  21. Been having a lot of trouble getting some action/western/horror movies on VHS lately.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Thorsten Günther

      Now that you mention it, I couldn't even find a single movie on Betamax lately.

  22. Dukes of Hazzard will be banned in the US shortly I presume, considering the paint job on The General Lee's roof.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      @Stephen: We had it all here in Germany. The Nazi flags are banned (except for their use art - including movies, but no comic books usually, so in Captain America the Nazis wave a window lattice flag instead - and historical purposes), so Nazis started abusing the (WWI and prior) Imperial War Flag first, then after outlawing the use of this flag on their rallys they actually started using the flag of Norway (to the embarassment of all Norwegians who learn about this fact), which of course can...

  23. Do you ever get to pay Far Cry 4 or do you just sit there and stare at the screen the whole time? I hate this bad acting crap that you can't skip.

    1. Thorsten Günther

      Someone at marketing apparently thought "people remember the CD-i for having all those non-skippable FMV scenes, let's be remembered just as fondly as the CD-i".
