    You need to do a taste test! You might have to change your name afterwards.

    I was halfway expecting to see a picture of everyone's favorite pitchman Mike Kennedy holding a mop and bucket. Anyway, I hope that this game does well for them.

    Orange whistle was far superior of a soft drink. Best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh St. Louis! Giving me the blues.

    I thought about sending a couple of localized food items before, but I wanted to keep it small.

    That's a GREAT idea Rick! I have some Ramune Japanese soda from Lost Ark Video Games that I've been sitting on for about six months that I've meant to send to MaximumRD for a taste test. Only concern is making sure glass bottles don't shatter.

    MeTV has a nice blog post up right now about regional soft drinks. It was totally incidental that I saw this but it's exactly what we're talking about right now.
     
    Regional Colas discussed in the article:
     
    CHEERWINE - North Carolina MOXIE - New England BIG RED - Texas VERNORS - Michigan FAYGO - Michigan GREEN RIVER - Chicago SUN DROP - South VESS - St. Louis DR. BROWN'S - New York City / South Florida  
     
     
    Until reading this I had no idea Sun Drop was a "Southern" regional cola. I swear I've seen them at Arco stations in California. Dr. Browns is also widely available in North Carolina. I think just as with craft beers, demand for regional and specialty colas have grown exceptionally in the past few years. As with most everything on MeTV, this blog post is worth a look:

    My sister did a few VHS to DVD conversions. It was more for convenience than anything. I bought a few crts with the built in vcr, a couple years back when the base transition barracks were being remodeled. Got them $10 each and that was over 8 years ago. Those things are built like a tank.

    T'was bound to happen eventually.

    VHS recorders have been being manufactured since 1977 in the US.    It will be MANY eons before they are even remotely hard to find.

    Pro-tip, if you ever have to start out or start over and need cheap entertainment, bring about $20 to a flea market, and you can get a VCR and a ton of movies.

    Got one on ebay here:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vectrex-Controller-Overlay-Decal-/322134580894?
     
    The Vectrex I have didn't come with the controller decal.  I think a former owner had to open the controller to fix it.  Well, this repro on ebay works great, and is removable and reusable.  Very nice indeed.  I went with the stock color, but they make others of various colors.
