When I first saw this show advertised I thought to myself “this looks like a great show”…and that was it. FINALLY I caught a few episodes and as expected – I love it. It is based in the 1980s from a young boy’s perspective. Growing up the in 1980s myself – the episodes I watched really brought my back to my childhood – with my tape collection and all great things from that decade.
If you have not seen it – give it a look: http://abc.go.com/shows/the-goldbergs. New episodes will be available this fall.
My love for Adele’s music + remixes = perfect song for this week (Hello Morten Remix).
I was going to post about Nintendo’s new awesome Super Mario Maker – but decided to highlight their awesome and creative overlay which made my day. I have always loved how playful Nintendo is – and glad they show the same playfulness with their web site. Nice work!
When I was a kid in the 1980s/1990s – there was not too many things I wanted to do more than go to an arcade to play my favorite games (Afterburner/Space Harrier to name a few). Recently I came across the “Internet Arcade” and love it! Finally I can play Qbert again too!
The Internet Arcade is a web-based library of arcade (coin-operated) video games from the 1970s through to the 1990s, emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package.
If you are an old school gamer like me – check it out!

Don’t get me wrong – I love playing new games like Call of Duty where everything is dynamic, you play with friends, and nothing is quite the same each game. There is something to say about the old NES games though where you’ve made the same jump at the same time each game. Perfecting a game meant learning and practicing timing vs. anticipating change like the games now. Regardless – I ran across this site: http://www.8bbit.com where you can play some of your old favorites. For me – it is all about Contra!
I first started listening to Keys ‘N Krates about a year ago. Ever since – they have yet to disappoint. On a recent long car trip – I listened to this remix on repeat.
Kryder & The Wulf – Good Vibes (Original Mix) just made it to my spring running mix.
