1082000 Arcade


This is for tracking/archiving, if that makes any sense. Ignore it if it does not belong anywhere.

I am a MAME enthusiast, after all.Kappa

Hard to believe I had 7 people watching me stream Hyper Sports.  Also streamed some Gorf, Wizard of Wor, Scramble, Twin Cobra 2 and of course DK.

Of course the underlining message Boognish is trying to make is that


the game is about a gorilla in a greenhouse

LOL, I'm a freaking idiot.


its a nice greenhouse with multi level hydroponic farm
 & it seems that hes growing those big mouth flowers that kill Mario on SMB

Of course the underlining message Boognish is trying to make is that the whole thing is a hobby, and meant to played for casual fun.  Anyone who takes this hobby for more than that should be taken as seriously as this gorilla picture.  I understand that mindset, but the whole, "Get a life" mentality that he's trying to present is harder for some people in our society.  I would have, "gotten a life" if I could have.  It just didn't work out.

I also used to post too much stuff about Donkey Kong before I met my girlfriend.

I think George needs to get laid. Can we make a kickstarter for that?  <Allen>
Most people would probably take offense to this.  Fortunately for you I'm not most people.  8)

Your statement has a ring of truth, but is only the tip of the iceberg.

Let me be clear.  If I had found the woman of my dreams when I was in my mid 20s, got married, and had kids I would have never got involved with competitive classic video gaming.  Steve Wagner, Dwayne Richard, or Ben Falls would be the World Record holder in Donkey Kong 3.

I basically chose my path because my dream of having a middle class 9 to 5 job, living in the suburbs with the white picket fence, a wife, and two or three kids came crashing down into a thousand pieces over the course of a couple of decades.

You see, people live on through their family, and kids.  What you teach your kids gets taught to their kids, and so on, and so on.  In this way we last a lot longer then our time on earth.

Well then, if the family or kids thing doesn't work, you have to find another way to impact society on some level if you are inclined to do so.  And that can be through a myriad of different ways.  Make a song, joke, painting, book, poem, math formula, invention, or whatever that will last year, after year, generation after generation.

I tried my hand in most of these fields, and found I simply do not have the talent to make a lasting impression on society.

Then I found that with certain classic video games I had the ability to grind away for hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon hours for months, and months at a time.   I also had the fortune of the fact that most of these classic video games didn't have a huge competition like most modern day games have.  So I could actually succeed with these timeless games that will be played for a very long time.

By hook or crook I basically want to remembered in a positive way after I die.  Yes, I get that only five or so people will even see a score or a video of me a thousand years from now.  It doesn't matter.  Even if it's only five people, and even if four of those five people are descendants of my nieces and nephews I will have made an impact of some sort long after my animation leaves this spinning ball of blue, green, and brown.

Yes, I realize that this way of thinking is found to be either pathetic or crazy by a vast majority of the population, but like I said, I'm not most people.
