  3. 😢Dammit! RIP - Stuart Gordon, Cult Classic Horror Director, Dies at 72, Loved his work ! https://variety.com/2020/film/obituaries-people-news/stuart-gordon-dead-dies-1203544356/

      Can computers get the COVID-19 virus???  LOL  Wait...COVID...CO-VID...COmputer VIDeo card virus.  Now it ALL makes sense!!  Every 19th video card I seen for cheap at AliExpress must have been infected.

  5. Not something I thought I'd ever say but WOO HOO! Found a place selling family packs of toilet paper today! We are good for sometime now. 😌😅

      MAN CANNOT LIVE BY TOILET PAPER ALONE. 2021 will be the year of the Japanese bidet.

    2. BlackCatz40


      I wish that the bidet would have caught on more here in the US. Less TP! XD

      Also Bottom-Half Showers  🛁 

  6. 🙁Bleh, well we wont be going on two tours / trips that were planned this year. May was "Four themed Towns" and December was THANKSGIVING ON THE OREGON COAST, both with Wells Gray Tours. Regardless of what happens at this point even IF the Dec trip would have been a possibility it is more sensible for us to just call 2020 a NO TRAVEL year. We are not young and healthy, we have diabetes (compromised immunity) as well as mild Asthma so taking the chance on any travel in 2020 is a gamble we are not willing to take.

    We work hard to try and maintain the health we have so a week of fun is not worth the risk. The time frame for a vaccine to be created, tested and the rest of the outbreak to be contained / controlled means 2020 is a write off travel wise. Ah well, we now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

      I'm sorry, man.  My wife and I had similar plans.  A summer trip to NYC or Florida, and then a fall cruise Vancouver BC to Los Angeles (visiting grandma, and both sons).  It totally sucks.  But we will try to make the best of a bad situation.  Trying to stay home as much as possible.  Hoping we don't get laid off (and lose our health insurance during a pandemic).  Editorial:  Canada, many of us Americans envy your health care system. 

      Here's to hoping for a brisk end to this madness, and maybe the world will make some changes for the better once it's done.  That we should all work together no matter where a dangerous virus begins.  That we can keep the environment clean.  That we can all understand health care should be a given for all and not just those with jobs that happen to offer it.

      It can still be a terrific year Rob, hang in there!

  7.  RIP - Kenny Rogers. My mother and step father were country fans so often heard country music on radio growing up (I was more into Motown and Sha Na Na going through my 50's phase) but I liked Kenny, his appearance on THE MUPPETS doing one of his classics made sure of that.


    1. Justin


      You know it's funny, people who know me wouldnt really think of me as a "Country Fan" and I guess I didn't really think of Kenny Rogers as a "Country Star" although I guess you could say he was. Maybe he was one of the first "crossovers"? I'll miss him, I'm sad he's gone.

    2. RickR


      Sad.  One look at 2020 and he knew "when to fold em" 

      I'll miss his music.  I also remember his "Roasters" chicken restaurants that had great food. 


  8. My wife messaged me, went to one store  NO TOILET PAPER, going to another now., there was nothing said by health officials to hoard toilet paper, people are retarded and the stores, shame on them for not limiting per person! You would think it is the %!#$&ing apocalypse. I live in the Okanagan Valley here in B.C. Canada and checking stats for confirmed cases here in B.C. : British Columbia - 46 confirmed cases including: Four individuals who have recovered, as indicated by the resolution of symptoms, followed by two successive negative test results 24 hours apart. One individual who has died. 2,008 individuals and 2,803 samples tested as of March 6, 2020. That is for our entire province, I do not think anymore than 1 case confirmed here in the Okanagan Valley where we reside.


    Me right now. 


    1. kamakazi20012


      We have two confirmed cases here in Missouri...one in St Louis and the other in Springfield.  Neither life threatening at the moment.  Our area?  Nothing but there is not a single store here that has toilet paper, paper towels, or tissues.  No diaper wipes either.  It would make more sense to me if stores ran out of food...not paper products.

  11. RIP 😢Tim Skelly Dies: Iconic Video Game Designer Passes Away at 69. https://heavy.com/games/2020/03/tim-skelly-dead/



  12. RIP - James Lipton, who plumbed the dramatic arts through perceptive, mostly admiring interviews with celebrity actors as host of the Bravo television series “Inside the Actors Studio,” died on Monday at his home in Manhattan. He was 93.

    The cause was bladder cancer, his wife, Kedakai Mercedes Lipton, said.
  13. RIP Larry Tesler: Computer scientist behind cut, copy and paste dies aged 74 😥




    1. RickR


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

  14. RIP Sy Sperling! A man who just wanted you to look your best! 




    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. 

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

    Is that where the AtariVCS backer money is being redirected? 
    Fox News - CHECK
    Via "Globalnewswhire" - CHECK
    Rendered mock up images - CHECK
    Oh sure that'll happen........😜🙄😆😆😆😆😆😆

      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.

    3. RickR


      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. 

    4. kamakazi20012


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

  16. 😥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/

  17. 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".
