      This is sad and frustrating. I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan. Thankful they brought some resolution to Hank and Norma's storyline but wish they'd stop wasting time and start filming Season 4. And now this.

      I was shocked to get home last night and see this. I agree Justin. Seeing Ed and Norma get closure was one of my many favorite parts of The Return.  Sadly, at this point I can't imagine season 4 will ever happen. Of course, Lynch is capable of anything.

      @greenween They keep hinting at it. Showtime wants to do it. Kyle MacLachlan says Lynch has more stores. Lynch hints at it. They need to do it and go make it now before there's no one left.

      R.I.P. old friend. Glad they were able to get everyone together one last time in these new movies.

      I see Earthworm Jim made the list! I'm as excited for that as anything. That's great news that they are adding more games!

  4. I FOUND AN iPHONE 4 !

      Except for official posts in Atari I/O. We will never post anything intentionally misleading.

      Thankfully, I can confirm my new Wii U is NOT an early April Fool's joke.

    RIP John Carl Buechler. 😥If you’re a horror fan, you’ve undoubtedly seen many of his amazing creations in your favorite films. Re-Animator, Ghoulies, Elm Street 4, TerrorVision - and not to mention, he directed Friday the 13th part VII, The New Blood. What a damn legend.

      This one really shook me to my bones.  52.  That's right in my wheelhouse. 

      May he rest in peace.

      Too young.  Simply too young.  I think mentally we all expect to live a long life but hearing things like this make you realize you really need to live everyday to the best quality you can.  My heart, prayers, and sympathy go out to Perry's family and friends. 

  8. So...............this is 51 huh? 🤔🎂

      I will also be 51 in 2019, so cheers to us old farts. 


  9. RIP Dick Miller character actor in 100's of films. He was 90 so a good long life. 🍻😢https://variety.com/2019/film/news/dick-miller-dead-dies-gremlins-terminator-1203124265/

  10. 😢(CNN)James Ingram, the soulful, smooth voice behind R&B hits like "Just Once" and "I Don't Have The Heart," has died at the age of 66.

    Ingram's longtime friend and creative partner, Debbie Allen, confirmed the news of his passing to CNN on Tuesday.
    "I have lost my dearest friend and creative partner James Ingram to the Celestial Choir," Allen wrote in a tribute on Twitter. "He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity. I am blessed to have been so close. We will forever speak his name."
  11. An  eerie coincidence to start off 2019 ? All on same day? “3 celebrities dead at the age of 76 and all had nicknames / altar egos — R.I.P. “Mean” Gene Okerlund, “Super Dave” Bob Einstein, and “The Captain” Daryl Dragon,” 😮😢

      Really going to miss The Captain 👨‍✈️

  12.  I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

      That's incredible. Why would somebody just throw that out? You know that might be good just for doing MAME and other stuff.

      Considering the timing I suspect someone got a nice new powerful laptop for Xmas 😛 Ah well, fine by me, they literally sat it gently on top with the power supply right beside it. Guess they figured nobody could log in anyway but hey in the wrong hands....fortunately for them instead of bothering to access the hard drive by various methods to bypass the login password or hook up to an externally to look at the files, I just looked up how to access HP RECOVERY and after setting it to original stock install of WIn 8 since it is a valid license I was able to update free to Win 10. Not the fastest CPU but it is still better than the previous old HP laptop I found a few years back (I use that with Linux MINT). There are a lot of older retirees here as well so who knows? Maybe someone bought gramps a new laptop and he just placed the old one in the bin. I figure better I got it than someone else or having it actually end up at the recycle depot 😛

      Let's see.  AMD architecture, Radeon GPU, and 4 GB of RAM?  That sounds like a basic gaming laptop setup.  Would be perfect for some Steam games and definitely MAME.  Amazing what you find in that recycle bin.  Just goes to show you that good things come to those that wait.
