Now I had the Grizzly Addams full beard with lots of gray 😆in it, starting to look like the hermit I mostly am but after shaving it down to a goatee I thought it looked much better at least even if I haven't had a haircut since before the whole Virus thing started, we avoid going out and with Melissa working from home YOU MIGHT THINK if anything that would give me more time to organize my thoughts, get my head together and plan and make videos.....WELL WHEN YOUR WIFE IS WORKING FROM HOME AND YOU ARE AROUND EACH OTHER 24/7 EVERY WAKING MOMENT believe me that is not the case 😏, barely a moment to myself these days let alone enough to put together and upload a video 😜I KID, MOSTLY..........no I'm not, HELP ME......😩

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

    1. RickR


      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.
  11. 😔 Rip brilliant actor Ian Holm. He was 88.image.jpeg.7a1c6da8e1bbf87b2a9d0ef86f784858.jpeg

  12. 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.

  14. RIP - 😢cool Canadian Denise Denise Cronenberg. We’ve learned the sad news this week that Denise Cronenberg, the sister of David Cronenberg, passed away at the age of 81 last month at Joseph Brant Hospital in Ontario, Canada.
    Award-winning artist Denise Cronenberg was the costume designer on several of her little brother’s films beginning with The Fly in 1986. Denise brought her style to most of David’s movies in the years that followed, including Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, M. Butterfly, Crash, eXistenZ, Spider, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars.
    Even prior to The Fly, Denise Cronenberg was credited as “wardrobe trainee” on Videodrome and “wardrobe mistress” on The Dead Zone, both films directed by David Cronenberg.
    Cronenberg’s costume design credits also include Bless the Child, Dracula 2000, Dawn of the Dead (2004), Dead Silence, Shoot ‘Em Up, The Incredible Hulk and Resident Evil: Afterlife.



  15. 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



  16. RIP - ANTHONY JAMES - He was awesome as a spooky chauffeur in Burnt Offerings (1976) ! Always a great as a menacing or sleazy character in movies and TV shows! One of those actors that just helped everyone else shine. 






  17. Whelp, time to dispose of the old VHS and tapes of old home movies! 😜😎

      I think I will always keep 1 VCR, I don't know, I have this worry for some reason I will want to record on it specifically to create something with that VCR effect, though I plan to get rid of most tapes, which seems difficult here for some reason, I don't want to pay and I don't want to end up in landfill, not sure allowed to throw in garbage? Nobody seems to want to accept used recording tapes 😜But anyway, as I was saying, yeah keep one VCR and oddly I have a few multi-packs of UNUSED and SEALED Fuji and Maxwell tapes because they were left downstairs (we have an "area" downstairs where fellow residents just leave things they think others might want) so if I DO want to record something on VHS I have nice unused tapes. I am always torn letting things go but also can never resist items that meet two criteria 1. Free 2. New. 

    3. RickR


      I know those feelings so well!

      On the pre-recorded tapes, my local library took them to sell in their little store.  A thrift store took the sealed blank tapes.  And sadly, the tapes with my recordings on them all went in the trash (I did recycle the cardboard sleeves). 

      Funny story:  Just yesterday, my son was in a panic because the power cord to his laptop was broken.  No problem, I pulled out a shoebox full of power bricks and cords and found an exact match.  So it's good to keep some things sometimes, as long as there is room to store them.


    4. MaximumRD


      Yes! I LOVE that feeling, the SONY VAIO laptop I found, it is ancient and slow but beautiful, the only thing was, no PSU sitting in the electronics bin with it, no problem, I had one that I snagged ages ago, the exact spec model, I was pretty damn happy about that!

      Yea, it is sad he is gone.  Now when we get to the pearly gates we will hear, "You keep a knocking but you can't come in!"

  18. RE: N64 😎 I am a huge Resident Evil games fan so of course even though my first experience of it was on Playstation I simply HAD to own a original N64 cart as shown. It's just loose cart and I have not played it in years (Hope it still saves?) but it is one of only a handful of original N64 carts I still own as I use my Everdrive mostly. Still, look forward to trying it out again soon, what they achieved on a N64 cart was impressive. 😍

      There is something very special about the N64, despite all the criticism.  Plugging in a cartridge and playing straight-away makes it a throwback to the oldest days of gaming.  Sweetness.

      Enjoy that game and let us know how it goes.

      The N64 was the last of the cartridge systems.  I have to admit that I admire that console.  It has some great games both 1st and 3rd party.  Midway supported it very well as did Rare. I have a lot of good memories on the console with the RUSH series and the Rare platformer/adventure games (Gemini, Conker, Banjo, Perfect Dark, etc.).  I could listen to the Cruis' N World theme all day long and not get tired of it.  The only aspect of the N64 I had issues with were with the controllers.  I would wear out the thumbsticks in about three months.  And it was hard for me to find aftermarket controllers that were comfortable.  It's just a neat and unique system to own with fun choices of colors, only cartridge system to make use of an expansion port (for something other than a CD-ROM), and is overall pleasing to use.  The controllers are surprisingly comfortable and easy to use and they don't cause cramps.

      I've never played RE on the N64, only on PS.  I'd like to know how it stands up today.  Oh...F-Zero on the N64 is a no-brainer.  That's a must-own N64 title!

      😎😉Now, I typically use my Everdrive but I have a pretty small but ok collection of original carts. I think I got most in a lot some time back, Ogre Battle 64 was sent to me from a fellow youtuber who said it was a good one. I would definitely play most of these happily though Quest 64 I have heard is not so great? Also, I am not much of a Pokemon fan in any capacity but I think it requires a separate accessory pak which I have but it is missing the Mic that plugs into it. Anyone know if I can plug any mic with a plug that fits? Maybe the mic from my Dreamcast vmu for playing Seaman? That would be a funny alternative. Of course Shadows of the Empire, Resident Evil 2 and Goldeneye are my favorites, of the rest does anyone have a favorite or even one you cannot stand? Thanks.image.jpeg.3fadf1188e2d9ccdac5568e9312c9467.jpeg

  19. Show recommendation - GANGS OF LONDON - IF you guys can "obtain" the first episode of this somewhere do it. A LOT of action, after the big bar fight scene I was surprised to see pretty much Daredevil type fighting action which is proven even further in a later scene fighting a huge thug with a Machete, this series is going to be crazy. Each episode between 53-93 minutes. This series is as one person described, utter carnage.


    1. Justin


      🙌 Thanks for the recommendation Rob! This looks excellent! Seems like you and Melissa have been checking out some cool stuff recently. Great post, thanks for sharing cool stuff like this@!
