  1. Get me up to speed on the "Likes" - post a link. Anyone get the latest Accept album with the song "Overnight Sensation"?

    1. thanatos


      Wow.  I had no idea they had anything past "Balls to the Wall".

      Listening now, and it's pretty good!  If you like 80's type metal of course.

  2. I've reached day 10 with Covid. Still have symptoms. Looking forward to getting passed this so I can do pinball and beer again.

      I was real sick for a week, then extremely tired for the next week. After a month I was just feeling run down, so I made myself get up and going again. All in all it took about 5-6 weeks total. It has been almost 6 months and my smell still has not completely came back. It was a few months before I could smell anything at all. Weird.

      I've heard some people say if you get the vaccine the "long haul" symptoms like loss of smell amd fatigue go away. I never got it and I'm vaccinated though so I can't personally attest.

      @VectorGamer I'm not a doctor, but as a random internet guy, if you have a doctor, I think it might make sense to touch base with them.  the medical care system isn't overloaded anymore, so it's not a matter of taxing the system, and they may be able to put your symptoms in context.

  3. If you're a sports fan, many of the leagues are posting full game replays on YouTube.

  4. I used to read poetry. Now I think it's stupid.

      Poets used to write about my stupid thinking.  Now I am smarter and they lost interest. :(

      You no like a-the Poems ? How bout a Riddle of the Sphinx instead? eh! 😎🤣

      ...But what about "Tweenwave"?...LOL

      Facebook should suffer the fate of myspace, ONLY WORSE! I hope Mark Zuckerberg gets locked up for this tracking and spying BS.

    3. VectorGamer


      No I mean they're not selectively choosing what posts I'm supposed to see. I'm actually seeing all posts from the Slayer group this morning.

      I always thought Faceplant was broken.

      A fap in the hand is worth 2 in the bush!

  7. r/food was a disappointment today

    1. MegaManFan


      I've never been able to get into the Reddit thing. I've tried, though.

    2. VectorGamer


      It's an acquired taste I guess. Took me a while to warm up to it but there's a ton of subreddits out there. With the off topic forums here on AA in the decline the last couple years just makes more sense to post on Reddit instead.

  8. CAG is dead

      Yeah I was being sarcastic in that forum post. CAGDC has been a ghost town for a long time. Only a few CAG tournaments a year anymore. It's too bad really it was fun while it lasted.

    3. MegaManFan


      Sorry to be dense but what's CAG?

    4. CPUWIZ


      Canadian Asshole Group?

  9. I have Atari 7800 w/ controllers and over 20 games this week up for auction

      hehe, im relatively new in the scheme of it, but ive been around bugging folks on AA for 2ish years.  :)

      And a bunch of sisters, not to forget.

  11. I don't often listen to Godspeed You Black Emperor often cuz their songs are long. I just wish I knew the title of the song I'm enjoying now because it's only tagged as track 10. I guess I'll have to take my smartphone and fire up Shazam and stick my headphones up to it but I think I'll just go to the restroom and take a potty break instead and forget about it.

    1. GoldLeader


      Antennas to Heaven...Perhaps that's it,...Though that could be the name of the whole fourth movement (tracks 4-10) or just the final track (#10) on disc 2 also called 2.2 or side 4 ...Yup,  they're a weird band.

    2. GoldLeader


      ^ Though I could easily be wrong about all that.

    3. atari2600land


      I LOVE Godspeed You Black Emperor. I have all their albums (except the first one that was limited to 33 copies!)

  12. Don't Fear the Reaper slowed down 800% https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNRGu2-t3PA

      Love it!   Is this a SUNN (((0) cover?  hahaaa!

    4. digdugnate


      i use Discord to talk with my wife and kids while I'm at work or away on Business- i'd be cool with some kind of AA hook if I could use my existing discord account.

  17. Am I allowed to sell my modded ColecoVision on eBay? Not clear where we are with that

    1. Show previous comments  5 more
    2. Albert


      Maybe modern consoles?  I see modified retro consoles often enough on eBay.  There's no copy protection on these old consoles, which is the only reason I could see eBay for removing modified modern consoles.  Of course, they may not know or care if there's a difference.

    3. VectorGamer


      OK thanks. Just thought I'd check. Wasn't sure.

    4. Keatah


      What Al said. Ebay doesn't like mods that let you play home-burned discs. Like mod chips that disable copy protection.


      A/V modded consoles are fine.

      Haha-I put Icy Hot on my hands, Mario Kart on SNES was killing me, I didn't think about it and took a wee shortly after.

      THAT was unpleasant.


  19. I have a beard because I'm fat

    1. 8_is_enuff


      I had my beard when I was too skinny and kept it as I fattened up. So..... I suppose I also had a beard when I briefly passed through my ideal weight.

    2. CPUWIZ


      I can't grow a beard, too evolved. :P
