Being a modern parent myself, I can state with total certainty that our folks were way the hell cooler
than today's parents.

Raves. Ptui. Back in the day, all you needed for a raging good time
was a case of Schlitz, some crapass hairdos and clothes, and a camera.

Remember your old Atari and the plethora of games that were available for it? Think you remember them all? Here's a bunch of titles
that I'd somehow forgotten.

If you're anything like me, you grew up in the formative years of personal computing, console gaming, and unbelievably bad haircuts. These are the days of our lives

While the teenyboppers were poring over Tiger Beat and Hit Parader, most of us were hunkered down over the Radio Shack catalog
, drooling over the 50-in-one kits, LED digital watches, and hi-fi stereos.

Luna City Arcade is our private home arcade. It is housed in a seperate dedicated building, right next to our house. The entire main floor is dedicated entirely to the arcade, so it is 2400 sq ft of wide open arcade space.

Last weekend I put an exhaust fan in the ceiling for my wife's grandfather. After a bunch of hours spent in The Hottest Attic In The Universe, he had a ceiling fan that ducted to the side of his house.

I possessed a few of these gems
as a kid... if only i'd become a pack-rat earlier in life : (

No, wait, that's AYD'S

I have noticed over the past few weeks that Wacky Packs
are back. They're packs of parody product stickers, inspired by the Fleer Crazy Labels
of the 70's. I used to collect em obsessively as a kid, and now I can (and do) again!
