Very happy to have gotten 567,200 on Crazy Kong during a live stream on Twitch.  It wasn't a killscreen, unfortunately, but awful close.  The game ended on L=21 rivets... I ran the star pattern the entire game, but I should have 'weaved' that board.  It would have made all the difference and probably would have allowed me to finish the game.  I'm planning on playing some more tomorrow night, looking to kill screen CK with 600k.  I'm currently 5th on MARP for Crazy Kong.  Thanks to all of you who watched and supported!  That game was for you, Phil!

Awesome job Jason. This post almost got buried in the "Recent Posts" section with all the other drama that's going on right now.  ;D  I know you've been working on CK for awhile. Have you been playing it alongside DK since ~2010? You should add a score progression in your blog like you did for DK.

It's hard to believe I haven't updated this blog in over 120 days.

I got this message as I began this post:

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.


As I sit here in the john, I'm reminded that I need to kill screen Crazy Kong.  Donkey Kong has pretty much been shelved for now, until I can get the CK monkey off my back.  So my current gaming agenda is to killscreen CK (and possibly pass the KS), and to post a score greater than 600k on MARP.  I think I have the skillz, but I lack the time.  In addition, this old man has decided to learn some new non-gaming skills as well, which I will elaborate on in a later post.  Thanks to JCHarrist, our webmaster, who has recently given DKF a ton more potential by including a new classic gaming sub-forum, and tweaking the site to make it more appealing to the broader CAG community.  Love it?

So I got pissed after a death in DK during a live stream last week, and I apparently did some damage to my laptop.  Yeah, I could use my wife or son's computer, but I think I'm calling it quits for a while.  I'm also unplugging from most social media.  I'm about to turn 40 in September, and I think I need to clear my head and map out some goals for myself, so maybe the broken laptop is for the best at this point.  I really haven't done much gaming this year anyway.  I'm currently working a job that I hate, and I'm experiencing a deep dissatisfaction with where I am in life, so it's time to make some changes.  I'll be back when things have turned around a bit.

If breaking your keyboard was a sign for you to stop playing Donkey Kong, then it means Allen had at least 18 signs to stop playing Donkey Kong  <Allen>

But joke aside, it's kindda sad you want to step away from Arcade/Internet, but I can understand. I hope you the best with the upcoming events in your life, and I hope everything will turn out well!

Health and happiness, mate, those are important. Games are just games (but DKF will always be here for you). I wish you the best of luck in finding the right path.

Jason sir, your presence in the scene will be missed BibleThump .  I wish you the best on your quest for positive change.  I'd like to think that everyone could find a way to make money doing something they really enjoy, as their own employer.   At any rate, I commend you for taking the bull by the horns, if you ever need anything we will always be here for you.  Keep going good!
