    Wow. What a long and productive run. I used to watch the telethon with my late cousin. We would make sheet "forts" and try to stay up for the whole thing.

    I grew up watching him with my family on my dad's side I no longer have. RIP Jerry...thanks for the laughters and the work you have done. You will be missed.

When did eBay sellers start adding "Launch Edition" to every loose console listing? Here's a white "launch edition" Wii. Look at that gray "launch edition" Jaguar. How about a yellowing "launch edition" SNES? Gimme a flippin' break.

    My personal favorite are the "launch edition" Virtual Boys. As if there were ever any other models.

    It's because that is how eBay has renamed them in their database. It's eBay, not the sellers.

    Let me know if you get one, we'll be sure to follow you. Not because we're "follow 4 follow" spammers but because you're an interesting person and would be awesome to follow I'm sure..

    As long as weather holds out we plan on it. Our grocery store is even shutting down for it. Not sure about other locals. In metropolis below us all hotel rooms have been filled at four hundred a room. Crazy stuff.

    I'd like to think this is all bluster. No one really wants a war in Asia. It will blow over. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it does.

I enter my 4th decade this weekend. That's right, the big Four-O. I guess I should spend it playing my favorite console from 1977. ;)
