      Cats are amazing. Five call me their human. Three of those were born in my back yard this spring.

  2. I feel so utterly disconnected from modern pop culture.  I don't really watch current TV, Movies, watch sports or listen to current music.  People are talking about the Mandalorian online and i'm just like "huh?"

      Couldn't agree more. The other day I saw a list of the top ten downloads on Spotify, not only did I not recognize a single "artist" but I wasn't even 100% sure what 'Spotify' is. The only current movies I enjoy are period pieces like Dunkirk.. TV has been largely dead to me for at least 20 years.. I'm actually regressing on this issue... While I'm still a fan of most things 80s, my girlfriend and I have been enjoying music and classic movies from the 50s and 60s recently.

  3. I want to live in a world where Duran Duran is still relevant... and no, I'm not counting that lame 'Wedding Album' crap.

      Nah, DD was so seriously intertwined with 80s culture, they should have just stayed on their estates, continued to cash their sizable checks, and not pretended to be part of the 90s. Which weren't that great and didn't really invite them.

      Yep. Both horrible songs. Duran Duran to me is 'New Moon on Monday', 'Planet Earth', 'Hungry Like the Wolf', and 'Rio'..

  5. Had a dream in which I picked up a small haul of vintage computer items curbside last night. Highlights included a rare (nonexistent) Commodore PET variant that my subconscious concocted, and a prototype cart of Pikmin II for C64.

      Yeah, the PET has always been near-and-dear to me. First computer I ever used in school..  Actually owned a 4032 from my elementary school for a few years before regrettably selling it. Current prices are prohibiting me from reacquiring one.

      Yep. Just the monitor. Think it was badged a 'PET 400'.

       

      And that's the irony. I'm a lifelong Atari fan, much more than a Commodore guy.

      The PET in my dream looked like a 2001, with a chicklet keyboard but having a disk drive where the cassette should be, and the built-in (color?) monitor had rounded styling, like one for the P500 would be?

      I know the feeling, joe... I woke up before I could fire up that Pikmin 2 cart. Really wanted to see one of my favorite GameCube titles in 8-bit glory.

      I find it SNL ironic that he and Sean Connery left this world so close together.

      @∞ Vince ∞ Never heard that song before. I've never liked Fleetwood Mac (primarily Stevie Nicks' voice) but I must say this is beautiful.

      2020, the year that just keeps on taking. A friend of mine passed away on New Year's Day at the age of only 46. It's been pretty much downhill from there.

      The 400/800 version was decent, unlike the 2600 bomb. Never got super into it though.

      I grew up with an old-school TI programmable (damned if I can remember the model number) from 1977-1978ish that I loved. Red LED, clicky buttons.. things were better in the past.

      I not-that-long-ago sold an HP 48GX (that I bought cheap at a thrift store) for much more than I paid, much more than it's actually worth... the world is crazy.

      Agreed. I really don't.

       

      I highly recommend https://popdaddypopcorn.com/

      They have a delicious dill pickle variety that isn't listed on the website for some reason.

      Hermes was a very handsome boy! I am so sorry for your loss. It never goes away.

       

      Annie was a rescue, 7 years old. We had almost five good years together. She went less than a month after being diagnosed with an abdominal tumor.

  21. Want a Shocking TRUTH They don't want you to know about? 

     

    I just made Microwave popcorn.  The bag said, "Do NOT use the POPCORN Button".  Well I grabbed it by the friggin flaps, threw it into the Mighty Panasonic and,  First thing, mind you,  I HIT THE POPCORN BUTTON!!!!  

     

    And...

     

    For maybe the First time EVER,  It came out PERFECT!!!

     

    I just added butter and some shredded cheddar cheese...It's Awesome!    Life is good!   But, full disclosure,  I do need to run up the hill and buy some cheap beer...Very thirsty for a tall boy of cold, crisp,  delicious beer...
