My friend Sean, the merchant mariner, only has a couple days before he has to go back out to sea so we were hanging out yesterday. I was editing some work and I guess it’s not a whole bunch of fun to watch someone caption pictures so he hooked up my old Atari 2600 and played every game I have. Between the Atari on tv and all the Michael Jackson on the radio I feel like it’s 1984 in my house.
Fun fact: When I was 7 my dog (Oreo) chewed up the top of my favorite joy-stick (right before he went to go live on a farm). That joystick is still capped with the BMW gear shift knob Andy Cavanagh gave me in Mrs. Kiely’s first grade class. I guess I’ve gotten 25 years of use from it so thanks Andy.
here’s a list of my games:
27 Tele-Games (shooting gallery…)
River Raid (which I dominate at. I will destroy anyone at River Raid)
Space Invaders (seen above)
I have some doubles too if you want to trade or whatever.
