Political 

It is genuinely really cool to see the "make excuses for the Democrats" crowd to get so small. As someone who used to be in that crowd, and interacted with that crowd all the time.

I don't know what, if any, the effects of that would be. But even the hardest of the die-hards are either reversing themselves or simply shutting up

TFW you and your spouse have the talk about moving because of hostile government decisions.

GRITTY ANTI-FASCISM 

Just gonna leave this here again.

It's a repost, but I think it's worth repeating today.

Here's a few more. These are all sized for the 800x480 LCD in this picture frame. Most of these were heavily re-pixeled by me to overcome JPEG artifacts or clean up poor scaling. Some were re-drawn entirely.

Stranger Things no spoilers... I think. 

Really waiting for Stranger Things 4 part 2 to drop just in hopes Eddie Munson (who is like every friend I had in high school) stops being the cowardly lion, and gets an ass kicking scene with Warlock's 1987 hit "All We Are" playing in the background as he gathers the party in a LOTR meets The Lost Boys montage.

I recently purchased the Power Stick from Retro-Bit. It's an arcade stick controller with clicky arcade style stick and buttons for the NES that looks like the NES Advantage minus turbo function. I really like it. It's a huge improvement over the standard controller.
* no part of my hand hurts from extended play
* all game types play great on it, really
* a freaking steal at $25
* the clicky buttons are easy to tap quickly, so lack of turbo is no big deal

Can't imagine why combining a video game, a role playing game, and an abstract board game into one complicated experience didn't take off

Chronicles Trivia 

There are several "Computer Chronicles" episodes that are missing from the Internet Archive. In season three, which I'm currently covering, there are three missing shows:

305. Computers and the Law
306. Programming & Programmers
322. Color and Computing

As far as I know, there's no information available about these programs under that these titles. I don't even know who the guests were.
