  2. ATARI DAY isn't until Sunday... Maybe celebrate Atari Day with family and friends on Thanksgiving this year. Fire up the 2600 for a round of Warlords. Just a thought.

      Happy Thanksgiving! Some people have model trains running around the Christmas tree. In my home we have the Atari 7800 going with lots of 2600 and 7800 games to play.

  3. I want to be excited about this, and I am... but the current owners of Coleco have somewhat tarnished their reputation in my mind for a number of reasons, so I'm going to reserve judgement until after this is released. There seems to be a lot of activity recently with mini arcades, if anybody should be doing these it's "Coleco".
  4. Happy Atari Day everybody!

  8. Great collection Kid A, that is some serious dedication. And I learned something new today: there are still new releases for the original Wii. I had no idea.

      Wow. What a long and productive run. I used to watch the telethon with my late cousin. We would make sheet "forts" and try to stay up for the whole thing.

      October is the peak of Fall. Brisk, cool weather. Halloween. It's the start of some nice things.

  13. Video stores are still alive and well in Alaska, thanks to factors stemming from living in remote locations with spotty and expensive internet coverage, and poor streaming. To me, the funny thing is I already knew this but I had never put it all together. I've seen video stores appear in various Alaska-themed shows that I've watched in the past, usually on the Discovery channel. Alaskans even trade VHS tapes enthusiastically.

  21. That looks beautiful StormSurge. It strikes me as a very special place where one could live that classic lifestyle. I would love to see more of your life here. Upcoming events that you partake in, day to day life, and so forth.
  22. It's a hot summer night. Battle of the Network Stars plays on the television, with actors like Ted Lange, Lou Ferrigno and Mackenzie Phillips competing against each other by playing tug of war and bicycle racing. It sounds like a moment from a time gone by, but it could also be an accurate description for this summer. That's right — the '70s and '80s television pop-culture classic, Battle of the Network Stars (which premiered from ABC Sports in 1976 and continued for 13 years), will be revived when it returns to television on ABC. Battle of the Network Stars is a nostalgic throwback to the original series where TV celebrities blended athleticism with hilarious antics. The 10-episode summer event will pit teams of current and classic TV stars from multiple eras and different genres against one another in a variety of athletic games. Viewers can look forward to seeing a fresh take at some of the classic show's sporting events like Tug of War, Archery, Kayak Relay, the Obstacle Course and the Dunk Tank. The original Battle of the Network Stars comprised of 19 specials that aired from 1976 through 1988. This summer, it's being brought back as a weekly television series. ABC recently announced the upcoming cast of celebrity competitors, and there are some serious throwbacks on this list! Barry Williams from The Brady Bunch, Jill Whelan and Ted Lange from The Love Boat, and Lou Ferrigno from The Incredible Hulk will compete alongside other classic stars like Charlene Tilton, Lorenzo Lamas, Mackenzie Phillips, Willie Aames, Danny Bonaduce, Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox. Another major difference between the revived version and the original is the teams will be comprised of different genres, rather than pitting the networks against each other. This time around, cops will be competing against doctors, and sitcoms will be competing against dramas. The series will air 10 episodes throughout the summer on ABC. From USA Today: 'Battle of the Network Stars' channels original series The 1970s Are Here Again! https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2017/06/27/abc-battle-of-the-network-stars-reality-competition/103143742/
