      That's a pretty cool thing to be remembered for.  R.I.P.

    Sy Sperling, the founder of Hair Club for Men, who coined the once-ubiquitous tagline "I'm not only the Hair Club president but I'm also a client,” died Wednesday, his family said. He was 78.

    Sperling passed away "after a lengthy illness," in Boca Raton, Florida, according to a statement from his family. After retiring in 2000, the New York businessman spent winters in Boca Raton and summers in Vancouver.

      May he rest in peace.  But let me be honest...Patrick Stewart, Gavin McLoud, and Michael Jordan taught us to embrace the bald.  Be yourself and be beautiful. 

  3. An Atari-themed hotel is planned for Las Vegas, officials recently announced. 😜

    Is that where the AtariVCS backer money is being redirected?

      I just found this on MSN.  Atari gets a percentage of what the hotels bring in plus $600,000 just for signing the deal.  I hope they use that money to finish the Atari VCS project they started.  I'd hate to think of all those backers not getting what was promised to them.

      My opinion:  whatever/meh.  But one thing that bothers me is how something like this gets posted 100 times on the various facebook retro feeds.

      I've been getting news on the Atari Hotels for a couple of days now.  It even made ABC news all day long.

  4. 😥Buck Henry Dies: ‘The Graduate’ Writer, ‘Get Smart’ Co-Creator & Early ‘SNL’ Favorite Was 89 https://deadline.com/2020/01/buck-henry-dead-saturday-night-live-the-graduate-get-smart-1202825337/

  5. My FIRST PS3 🤔If all goes as planned  within a couple weeks I will be getting my first ever PlayStation 3, a slim series model with Custom Firmware even. I had the OG PlayStation and PS2 and loved them but was put off of PS3 launch price and somehow it just slipped by me since. I won this one in a contest though much to my surprise, not sure what I can do with the Jailbreak custom firmware besides load games to hard drive, I've no interest in online play with others or if I need and PSN account to do anything with it or what is risk of messing up the custom firmware etc? All new to me, I watched a video on the process of how it was modded, frankly not hard but many tedious steps involved, now I just want to get the most out of it but it's all new to me. Anyway I intend to research and learn as much as I can, might post back here in a thread for help or suggestions once I have received and set it up.

      That episode "Charlie X" is one of my favorites.  I've always thought Charlie's benefactors and the Trelaine aliens are probably "Q".

    One of her best-known roles in recent years was in Joseph Green’s 1962 low-budget science fiction cult classic “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die,” in which she played the disembodied head of the main character’s fiancee, which he keeps alive after discovering how to keep human body parts from dying.

      I was so saddened by this news. In my opinion, the Cars' self-titled is one of few perfect debut albums. It's been a lifelong favorite.  Thanks for the music, Ric!
