    Oh boy. I just bought my first DVD copy of the original Miracle on 34th Street (I only have the remake on DVD, though I have seen and prefer the original), and I get back to my college dorm and put it in my computer to discover that it's been colorized (very badly too). Good thing I know how to fan edit films, so I can just turn the color off with Windows Movie Maker.

    ATARI DAY isn't until Sunday... Maybe celebrate Atari Day with family and friends on Thanksgiving this year. Fire up the 2600 for a round of Warlords. Just a thought.

    Playing World Tour Racing for Jaguar CD this morning. While it is generally better than Checkered Flag, I can't help but think it would have worked better as a 2D super scaler.

    Am I the only one sick and tired of the Flashback consoles? Now we're on 8 GOLD with HD out and it's just more Atari 2600? Ridiculous.
