More hilarious stuff happening lately. I was screen-capturing a live stream so I could make a video about what I thought of it, and then awhile ago, I discovered that I accidentally live-streamed the capture. I deleted that as soon as I found out. I am going to take extra caution next time I record something.

I'm watching "Grinch Night," the underrated Halloween prequel to the Christmas classic. When I was a kid, I actually saw this before the Christmas one, and I grew up thinking this was the original.

Pointless fact of the day: Using a pay phone to call scammers allows you to repeatedly call the same number and waste their time until they end up cursing at you! I seriously recommend doing this, because toll free numbers are free to call on pay phones and they can't block your number! https://youtu.be/aJB5n7wdwWM

Honestly had no plan to replace the old Toshiba 27' Tube Standard def until it literally died but that decision was made for us when relatives visited a few weeks ago and bought us a new 43" 4k Sharp TV. Gotta admit it is nice.

    How does it handle older systems? Does it accept a 240p signal?

    480p Tubes are still better for retro games, but 4K is better for TV shows. You need both

    I agree, but if you don't have space for both it becomes an issue. My tubes are in the garage and I have a few "beater" consoles that I keep hooked up out there. My "good" consoles are in the house and I use an older Samsung HD TV that still has s-video and component, despite being 1080p. It has a 4:3 aspect ratios setting too and most retro games look great on it. When that dies, it will be an upgrade and I know that some 4K TVs do not play well with the oldest consol...

You nailed it, Sega Spartan? More like Sega Fartin am I right? ENOUGH ALREADY. No amount of petitions or signatures by Sega Fans is going to make the current Sega take notice or give a shit, they are too busy lending their license and IP's to cheap Chinese handheld and clone manufacturers for quick cashing in on Sega fans nostalgia.
