At this moment 35 Years ago today, on June 21, 1982, at approximately 4:30 P.M., the arcade game business fell off a cliff.

    I think it started when they started charging more than a quarter for games.

    It also did not help that Regan tried to tax the arcades on money made from people playing the games when those businesses still had to pay for those machines.

The only instrument Dallas knows how to play is drums, so what will his first attempt at playing piano be like? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XVAllm1HFQ

Since this past weekend my subs on YouTube have jumped 30 or so. I have never tried to have a large channel and I am sure my content shows that but I would be lying if I said it didn't feel good! So if you are part of this little journey of mine, THANK YOU so much! Love this community.

There is a thread on AA stating the Keith Robinson of Intellivision has passed. I haven't been able to find a news account to verify. If true, this marks the passing of a retro gaming legend and a very nice guy. Here's the discussion: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/266706-keith-robinson-passed-away/#entry3784483

Got my room mostly cleaned out now. It looks like I dodged a bullet and most of my videogame collection was unscathed. A lot of my Wii and PC games boxes need to dry out, though.
