    Atari Creep

    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.

    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.
