  1. I just saw an Uber Eats commercial with Patrick Stewart and Mark Hamill.  There was almost a fight between them with Cricket bats of all things.  It was epic!

  2. I will be shipping the whole set to @AtariBrian. If you guys want to get together after the fact then that will be on you. There are a lot of spare parts there.
  3. Ok ladies and germs, the last item for a while will be my collection of G. I. Joe figures and accessories. Again, I just want them to go to a good home and be enjoyed by someone. Shipping will be free on this lot.
  4. Not that hard. I found it in today's birthdays on the forums home page. Happy birthday by the way.
  5. I got a package from Songbird today and it had half of a newspaper page in it from what looks like Sweden.  Maybe @carlsson can translate for us.

      So Vasteras is Carlsson's city...I think a Krog is a half crocodile, half dog;  And a Snart is when you've got a snot that smells like a fart...

       

      OK, Maybe you better get Carlsson.

      Cool. That must be a rather old newspaper, about February 2020. The upper article mentions a music festival intended to be held on June 25-27, but due to Covid-19 it was cancelled altogether on May 15. The big news was about a female artist, Veronica Maggio making her only planned concert in this area at the festival. Alas that never happened.

       

      The bottom article is about yet another of those trendy restaurants opening and closing all the time. For a short while there was a low-end fastfood burger joint at the address at Sturegatan, but slow serving plus even more boring burgers than McDonald's meant it didn't last long. Now this Blackstone Steakhouse was about to open, with game, beef, pizza, swordfish, vegetarian and vegan choices on the menu. The guest gets a raw piece of meat to the table and decides for how long to cook it.

       

      Apparently this restaurant at least still is open, seven months later in a period of many places closing down (even here where we never had a full lockdown). However, I've never been there. For a price point, the pizzas and vegan dishes are ~$17-$21 each and meat dishes $28-$41. That might be typical for that kind of restaurant, but then again at that price point the city is crowded by existing and new restaurants, so they got a lot of competition.

  6. I think I paid $75 or $80 back about 15 years ago. That was probably the most I ever spent on a game up to that point. It was new and sealed (but not for long!!!). Only recently have I surpassed that. If this game was for a current gen system it would be a $30 game all day long. Good luck in your quest.
  7. Thanks for letting me know they arrived safely! Enjoy them.
  8. There is a Marketplace section of the forums with a Wanted thread. Maybe one of the mods can move this there.
  9. How strange, in todays birthdays there are 9phoneman and 10phoneman.  Both of them are 48 today.  What are the odds?  Maybe they are twins?

      Maybe a phoneman traded in his iPhone9 (is that a thing) for an iPhone10, and ...I dunno...

  10. Wow! Nothing screams 1980's like that radio. That's cool.
  11. Saturday night TV update:  Dr. Cyclops on Svengoolie tonight.

      If you're into that Twitter thing, then you can live tweet during Sven.  Just use the #Svengoolie hashtag.

      I had so many fart jokes running thru my brain that they all just ran together, so I'll let it go, insert your own.
