  1. Arby's has a new Diablo chicken or brisket sandwich out.  I had the chicken for lunch.  I like some spicy stuff but HOLY HELL!  It didn't kick in until I was about 1/3 through the sandwich, then it got really spicy.  By the time I was 2/3 through I felt like I was eating the Devil's A$$hole!  They give you a small milkshake with it and trust me, you'll need it.  I couldn't finish the last two bites and anyone who knows me knows that I don't waste food!

      I wonder if the Devil's A$$hole is any hotter than the Devil's Dick?


    3. GoldLeader


      I made a Spicy Veggie Chikkin' sandwich in tribute!  Haha...Sometimes ya get a wild one too.  If you ask me,  certain peppers vary in their hotness...Jalapenos can be very mild or very hot IMO,  Ghost Peppers are pretty constant,...I bought some peppers a while back (Can't remember the name though...Kind of like Serrano peppers) But these (whatever they were) said on the label,  "Usually Mild but 1 in 10 are Hot!" ...Found that interesting...

    4. GoldLeader


      Figured it out! ...Shishito peppers!...OK, Then...They're mild....Just... had to find that memory...Cheers joeatari1!

  2. I received an email about all the new games in the AA store the other day.  Thanks AA and all the devs for making great new games!

    1. joeatari1


      P.S. Status updates are working for me again!

  3. Merry Christmas Atari Age!

  4. I went "for to get a big dish of Beef Chow Mein" tonight for dinner.  Warren Zevon would be proud.

      @7800Knight, no but I do have some Pina Colada mix from Trader Joe's somewhere in the house.  Does that count?

    4. GoldLeader


      FWIW,    in tribute perhaps,  I am drinking a half orange juice, half Pina Colada over some crushed ice with a dash of pineapple juice/chunks, and some maraschino cherries and juice...

  5. Alan Parsons Project.  The soundscape of their songs are so deep and immersive.  I love picking out the individual instrumentation from their songs.

      I don't know...especially since his work was used to almost destroy several cities on earth from the moon....

    3. doctorclu


      What is that all about Max?  (Austin Powers reference?)

    4. Max_Chatsworth




      Of course :)


      Merry Christmas

      Grousing doesn't though!

      Yep, one of those things that's probably easy to do if you're a pro. It's a hard-won skill. So once you master it, you will then want to do other tile projects for others. :) Hopefully for money. I learned a lot of stuff owning an old house for 20 years. I could probably start a small project construction co. at this point with my skills and tools owned. I think in Ohio if it's $1,000 or less, you don't need a contractor's license.

  7. If an new AA battery is $2, how much is a dead AA battery?


    Nothing, it's free of charge!

  8. Mike Nesmith of the Monkees died today. He was 78.

    1. SlidellMan


      As someone who liked listening to their music, this is sad indeed.

    2. ClassicGMR


      I loved listening to The Monkees albums. I never heard anything from First National Band though... I should go find a tune and see if I like it.

      I've been a fan of the Monkees (and particularly Nez) for over 40 years. He looked especially frail during the tour he and Micky just concluded, but of course you always hope that such things are momentary.


      I'd highly recommend checking out Nez's solo work. Tropical Campfires, The Newer Stuff, Magnetic South, and if you're looking for something a bit different, try The Prison (which is a masterpiece) or Rays. Micky just released an amazing album of covers of Nez's work titled Dolenz Sings Nesmith. Well worth checking out.


      Rest in Peace Nez.

  9. Everybody have fun tonight.

    Come on everybody Shang Tsung tonight!

      How's that MKII cabinet working out,... Great I bet?

    2. joeatari1


      It's awesome!  Fits my basement bar theme perfectly and covers up the sewer cleanout pipe just like I had hoped.

  10. Bought an Arcade 1UP MK II cabinet on Tuesday.  I received it today, two days earlier than expected!  I assembled that sucker in about an hour and a half with my older daughter helping.  This thing is really cool and looks great in my newly renovated basement!

  11. What do you call a cow with no legs?



    Ground beef!


    1. TheGameCollector
    2. GoldLeader


       I call him MR. Unlucky the Non Motion Cow!


      I could stick a micro chip in him...Chipped Beef!


      Maybe stick some corn up there...Corned beef!


      Add pot...Corn Beef Hash!


      I crack myself up.

    3. desiv


      Doesn't really matter, she isn't coming to you when you call her anyway...

  12. Chillin in the recliner with a glass of Wild Turkey with honey.  Super smooth, and it's Wild Turkey, ready for Thanksgiving.

  13. I'll just leave this right here...


  14. My wife just called someone a "douche hat".  Best of both worlds I guess, douche bag and ass hat all rolled into one!

    1. DoctorSpuds


      I prefer Douche Nozzle, or if Shitweed if I'm feeling nasty.

      Creative swearing is one of life's greatest pleasures. 

    2. Rogerpoco


      I combine the other two a lot, ass bag.

      No idea why, I just do. People, places, and things can all qualify.


  15. Home sick from work today, the day before I am supposed to go on vacation.🙁

      That's always the way it goes.  Hope you get to feeling better soon!

    3. joeatari1


      Thanks guys.  I have a low grade fever and I'm extra snotty.  Otherwise not so bad.  Hopefully I can fight it and get back to normal (or at least as close as I'll ever get) by morning.

    4. frankodragon


      It's always something isn't it?  

      A few years ago, the night before the MGC in Milwaukee, I threw my back out.  I moved like a Frankenstein during the whole weekend.

  16. When I see names inside a heart carved into a tree, I can't help but think how strange it is that people bring knives on a date.

    1. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      once apon a time almost everybody had a pocket knife

  17. Centipede Recharged is AWESOME!  I love the game play, graphics, music.  An all around A+ on this one!

    1. Cobra Kai

      Cobra Kai

      Thanks for saying something, it definitely looks like a game I'd be interested in.

  18. Chuck Norris.  He puts the fun in Funerals.

    1. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      specially because he's still alive and kicking

  19. Who's excited for Centipede Recharged?!?!  Release date is tomorrow!

      Already calling the VCS the "Ole VCS"   Hahah.   Anyway, looks good, might have to pick it up for the PS4.



    3. digdugnate


      im gonna check it out.

      @doctorclu I still have an extra VCS for sale, it's not too late to experience it on it's intended home: ATARI! :D

  20. Any TI99/4A fans near Philadelphia? Maybe you can rescue this one.



  21. Well, today is my 13th anniversary.  I am surprised we made it this long.  I must be a saint.

      It is also my 13th anniversary. Does this make me a saint too?

    3. joeatari1


      @fdurso224, that's Mrs. Atari1 to you buddy!


      @HatefulGravey I don't know you well enough to come to a conclusion about that, but if your relationship is anywhere a tumultuous as ours, then yes.

    4. HatefulGravey


      I have to admit my relationship comes very easy to me. If anything my wife is the saint, she has me spoiled rotten as can be. 

  22. I want to buy a claw machine and put all of my kids stuffed toys in it.  It will keep all the stuffed toys contained and the kids get a lesson in capitalism.

      If they're older than about 10 or so, you can build one from scratch with them with an Arduino board. They'd learn a lot -- basic carpentry, painting, basic Arduino coding, wiring, etc.. Capitalism is easier to survive in if one is armed with such skills.

    3. joeatari1


      I have many skills.  My soon to be 11 year old is very interested in my mechanical and carpentry skills.  I recently bought her a few electric and science experiment kits (think Heathkit) and she is really into them.

    4. Keatah


      @GoldLeader Seems the act of taking things out IS the play. Family dog does the same thing, once everything is out it moves on to something else.

  23. Something Tempest this way comes.

      Hedging a bet.

      Did you do something to anger a mod?  :D

    4. GoldLeader


      On a clean Corvette?

  24. My mind is like my internet browser.  12 tabs are open, three of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from!

      @joeatari1 Hahaha. Good one Joe. 8^)

      Sounds like Firefox has taken over your all of your RAM and swap drive space.

  25. Anybody seen @CPUWIZ?  He hasn't posted in almost a month.  I hope his health is still good.

    1. Shawn


      I talk to him very often. He's just fine.  He will get word of your ask to his wellness.

    2. _The Doctor__

      _The Doctor__

      it's been about a month since the Master Control Program has sent anything through the portal tower and posted in the general forums


    3. Kiwi


      I've been thinking of him. It's good he's doing alright.
