  1. Dug this up just now and thought this might make for something different. Post a photo / picture / image that you are in showing something silly, fun, retro etc. I'll kick off with this one - Here's me at 16 getting a promo Polaroid picture before seeing JAWS. Honestly, I love this shot and there is as far as I am concerned only one embarrassing thing about it, IT WAS FOR JAWS 3 ! 😂🙄
  2. Happy Canada Day EH! To all my Canadian brothers and sisters ! 🍁🍻

  5. Playing MAME on desktop and thinking "WHY THE HELL DON'T I DO THIS MORE OFTEN?" 😀😎

      Exactly.  It's my thought every time I think about doing another XBOX/PS2/Wii mod or creating a new Raspberry Pi build.  The desktop PC version is the easiest way to get your emulation fix.

      I go back to it every so often, it is a funny reminder that even though I was pretty much a videogame console player that there are some major differences when compared to original arcade versions. I mean pretty much from NES onward (well even before that Colecovision) it felt like having the "arcade" at home but then you load up MAME and suddenly it's like a slap in the face in comparison, especially with a lot of NES ports, or EVEN Sega Genesis you realize damn the arcade game had even bigger sprites and more frenzied action. I mean sure the Arcade game dynamic sometimes would not work as well and was changed to suit a home console but in some cases it was definitely changes due to limitations. I was playing some of the Golden Axe sequels and was surprised how different it felt, sometimes it is just a different color palette but it is definitely nice to go back and experience versions closer to the Arcade.
  6. 😔 Rip brilliant actor Ian Holm. He was 88.image.jpeg.7a1c6da8e1bbf87b2a9d0ef86f784858.jpeg

  7. Like the Shmoo avatar, by the way! It reminds me of the 'Lil Abner comics. He used to be on those Saturday morning Hanna-Barbera cartoons, too. I remember them when I was a kid. :O)

       That is it exactly, at least in my case, as a kid I was in a library and picked up a book which was a compilations of Lil' Abner by Al Capp and I instantly loved it. Read the whole thing and for years I would scribble the Shmoo all over the place (yes even in stalls and walls and other places lol) in fact all the way up to high school the Shmoo was my signature I was kind of known for. I was just thinking about it a few days ago and just had to google for a suitable SHMOO. 

  8. RIP - 

    Denny O’Neil, ‘Batman’ writer and comic book legend, dead at 81

    RIP - 😢 Longtime comic book writer and editor Denny O’Neil died Thursday at home of natural causes, Games Radar reports. He was 81.

    Best known for his work writing DC Comics’ “Batman” and editing Batman titles from 1986 to 2000, O’Neil also worked at Marvel Comics on such series as “Spider-Man” and “Iron Man.” Over the course of his more-than-four-decades-long career in the industry, he was involved in the naming of the character Optimus Prime and in leading Batman back to a darker narrative. He also wrote episodes for TV shows “Batman: The Animated Series” and “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero,” among others.

  10. I had just made a topic about the trailer when I noticed this thread so I will simply paste my reaction. Happy for actor Alex Winter, nice Keanu remembers the movie that helped launch his career, yes he did other things before but let's face it average person thinks of Bill & Ted. PARTY ON DUDES ! 🎸🥳
  11. YES it's big and crazy but I loved that about it 😆 Mine is an original 4-port which I love but I believe it had the mod done to work with those couple games that caused issues if memory serves. It's in great condition, I immediately purchased a BEST ELECTRONICS refurbished controller. Despite all the complaints of the original controller I get it, for certain games though it seems decent, not so much for others. I REALLY need to get around to cleaning my 5200 trakball one day as it did not seem to work great with the little testing I did. I have a Atarimax flashcart (USB type) but I do have several original carts. I think I got a nice full package deal some years back I could not resist, I did purposely choose the original 4 port, my only experience with it back in the day is a friends dad had one but NO ONE WAS ALLOWED TO PLAY IT 😛 I also have the 2600 adapter, 2 actually, one stock and one that has been modded to work either connected to the 5200 OR as a standalone 2600 console, I really hope to get around to do some up to date videos on it all again someday, here is a couple of my old videos on it: Here I talk about getting a 5200 soon! This was, my god...9 years ago! First hook up and testing of the 5200 and some games ! My nice refurbished 5200 controller unboxing from BEST ELECTRONICS. Atarimax 5200 multicart Testing the ,multicart, refurbished controller and even a PC joystick adapter !
  12. RIP - Kurt Thomas, Champion Gymnast and Star of ‘Gymkata,’ Dies at 64. Sad to hear so young, unfortunate cause as well 😞 "The worlds of elite gymnastics and cult film have lost one of their greatest stars. International Gymnast Media reports that Kurt Thomas, the world-champion gymnast turned hero of the beloved 1985 movie Gymkata, died on Friday after he suffered a “tear of the basilar artery in the brain stem” and a severe stroke in late May. Thomas was only 64 years old.https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ny-kurt-thomas-20200606-uhxysya5kbgp5do2slymrq4wge-story.html
