  1. ๐Ÿ˜› Well I will post one more, I tried but I guess not many will put themselves out there or laugh at themselves (THANKS to few who participated), that's cool, I tried and in that same spirit this next post shows I am totally willing to be laughed at. I will leave it at that, this thread can just die off or whatever. ---- BUT FIRST A MESSAGE ----- NO RAT(S) WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS 30+ YEAR OLD IMAGE, THOUGH THEY MAY HAVE ENDURED SOME MOISTURE ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜œ ME back in my teens, yep that is real, my pet RAT JD, if I say he did not bite me on occasion I would be lying, if I said I did not deserve it.....I would also be lying....SIDE NOTE, an old iPhone 4 makes an awesome fast scanner for old photos ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜† Last word, besides silly shenanigans like this they my rats (JD and MARTY, MARTY WAS ALL WHITE) were played with a lot, feed pizza or whatever I was snacking on etc. They were fun. ๐Ÿ˜Ž they fact I could even DO this was due to their, perhaps misplaced TRUST.

  3. It DID occur to me lack of participation may be down to many not having photos / Polaroids in digital format available for posting and no easily accessible scanner to consider doing so and with that in mind just a thought........ These days for the most part one could likely use a tablet or phone camera as these are so common to just take a picture of an original photo or Polaroid, MY image I started with was actually just taken with an older tablet camera of a Polaroid. IF any of you have a photo in mind consider that method, just be wary of reflective light and FOCUS as much as possible, I think you might be surprised how easily this can be done. I am considering doing some more of my own this way ๐Ÿ˜›
  4. 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 ! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„

  8. Playing MAME on desktop and thinking "WHY THE HELL DON'T I DO THIS MORE OFTEN?" ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž

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

      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.

  10. 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)

      ย 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.ย

  13. 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 ! ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿฅณ
  14. YES it's big and crazy but I loved that about it ๐Ÿ˜† 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 ๐Ÿ˜› 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 !
