  1. Watching 1966’s Tarzan and the Valley of Gold. Tarzan meets 007. It’s really not as bad as it sounds. 

  2. Heading to the Midwest Gaming Classic. Gonna hang out at the arcade for a spell.

  3. Robots Delta 2 and Rhomboid 4 attack!

  4. “Savage! Found floating down the Amazon in a hatbox.”

  5. In honor of this week's final commercial 747 flight I will be viewing Airport '77.

    1. Corby


      naw. watch Airplane, and Airplane 2 the sequel

    2. travistouchdown


      Original 747? They must be running the newer ones still..

    3. GoldLeader


      Kind of a blur but I'm pretty sure I saw Airport '77 in the theater as a kid.

  6. DaveTV night. Logan's Run or Silent Running?

      Useless trivia: the actress who played Jessica in the movie (Jenny Agutter) has been in The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a member of the World Council.

      Jenny Agutter naked, what more do you want

      You've reminded me, I still need to finish Silent Running....Logan's Run I've seen a bunch though...Classic!

  7. Stolu. Om. Bolu!

      "The Land that Time Forgot"! It seems that you couldn't make an Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation in the 1970s without casting Doug McClure.

    2. DaveD


      Winner, winner, Mahar dinner!

    3. DaveD


      Agreed. I finally tracked down an NTSC Warlords of Atlantis and rewatched that recently. Fun stuff. Hadn't seen that since the drive-in in 1978.


  8. Star Blazers or Battle of the Planets? I think I lean towards BOTP. Even 7-Zark-7 can't ruin that for me.

      The Macross arc is ok. The other 2 are terrible. Love SB & BotP pretty much equal. http://atariage.com/hack_page.php?SystemID=2600&SoftwareHackID=282

      No way was the New generation storyline terrible! Imo was better than the original Mospeada. The Masters story sucked and wasn't as good as the original Southern Cross,but overall Robotech was still a great series. StarBlazers is ok,but no way is it as good as the original Yamato.

    4. s0c7


      To each their own. Yamato did have a better live-action film than Gatchaman.

  9. Wife’s out of town so I have the TV to myself tonight. Buck Rogers, Red Dwarf, Atragon or The Mysterians? Decisions, decisions.

  10. If anyone needs me I'll be watching SpongeBob. For the next 4 years.

  11. I HATE YOU ADOBE!!! Thanks for letting me vent.

      Yeah. Flat as a pancake.

      The little car that's made out of clay?

    4. MegaManFan


      And I hate their Flash updates too!

  12. Newly announced Microsoft Surface Studio PC looks pretty sweet to this longtime Mac user. Given Apple has pretty much given up on the creative pros these days...

      Apple is marketing to mass consumptionist. Not professionals anymore.

      As long as we're fantasizing, I'd like to see a new MacMini with upgradable RAM, and user-replaceable dual SSD drives. And a pro video card option. Basically, a MacMini Pro.

    4. MrMaddog


      Remember when Apple products "just worked"? I hate doing tech support just because WiFi or iCloud doesn't work like they're suppose to...

  13. I've not been into modern games since early PS2 days. But No Man's Sky has me seriously intrigued. Seriously.

      Hey I Too Dug Aquanauts Holiday and Tail of the Sun!...I thought I was the only one haha...BITD The guys at the game store did Not seem to agree...

    3. Tickled_Pink


      Hope it does well, despite the faults. It's rare for a small team to create something this big.

    4. Flojomojo


      I'm glad you brought up Aquanaut's Holiday and Tail of the Sun -- this has the same kind of vibe (and unfortunately, a similar lack of polish -- it is very crashy for a console game)

  14. If sitting is the new smoking, I must be up to 3 packs a day.

      Just don't get ass cancer. That's a pain in the.. well, you know. :D

  15. Is it just me or have gas station sandwiches really picked up their game?

      My favorite is Wawa, which has touch screens for ordering. No human contact required.

      Am I the only one who pays people to deal with yard work?

    3. DaveD


      No. Grass cutting is typically a good time to listen to music though so I don't mind it. Cleaning gutters? Homey don't play that.

    4. NE146


      I'm about to make a delivery right after I type this :)

  17. Space Ace!

    1. DaveD


      Adding comments on a mobile device apparently behaves completely differently than on a desktop.

    2. DaveD


      Watching Samurai Jack and they worked a Space Ace joke into dialog mentioning a "dragon's lair."

  18. "Where does the other lead?"

  19. "Take the stony path at the fork in the road to the dragon's lair."

  20. PS2 Pinball Hall of Fame: Williams Collection rocks! Those Wizard table goals are killer though.

    1. Nuclear Pacman

      Nuclear Pacman

      Thing is the ps2 version is extremely easy. Get the x360 game for a better challenge and more tables and better physics

    2. DaveD


      Scoring 4 million+ on Space Shuttle, one of the wizard table goals to unlock extras, is definitely NOT easy.


      Even getting 550,000 on Gorgar is tough. Both great tables though.

  21. Pew! Pew! Pew!

      Nathan Strum

      Needs a few more Pew-Pew-Pews.

  22. "Total carnage! I love it!"

    1. BillyHW


      Great game and worthy sequel to Smash TV and Robotron 2084.

    2. darthkur


      I'd buy that for a dollar!

    3. Papa


      ...says the guy from "Smash TV"

  23. Cool behind the scenes CG breakdowns from the new Star Wars. Some spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet: http://www.cgsociety.org/news/article/1906/star-wars-the-force-awakens---breakdown

    1. sramirez2008


      Really cool! - Thanks.

    2. jaybird3rd


      I'm glad to see that they at least used real locations, with CGI added to create set pieces and set extensions, rather than filming entirely against green screens.
