This past weekend, Bill and Lucy Lange hosted the Atari Party East at their home in Somerset NJ, close to where Atari had an office back in the 80s.

141 - Enduro by Activision Part 2 of 2

8/20/2017
More
So. This episode is about Activision's racing game Enduro, but it is not the only episode about Enduro that I will be doing. I expected a good amount of feedback for this game, and I got an enormous amount instead. Which is absolutely wonderful, I am ecstatic to get so much feedback this far into the podcast. However, it is late and I am tired. Rather than wait to put out the whole show, I am putting out what I have so far, and the rest will go out this weekend. I kept telling Sarah that...

Summer Podcast "Progress" Report

7/4/2017
More
Here's a little update on what I've been doing instead of working on the Survival Run episode. That episode will be out next Wednesday. And don't forget the contest! If you'd like a shot at winning Survival Run (provided by Strudders hisself), all you have to do is guess the combined Strudders' Score of Strudders himself and also Mini Strudders. So for example, if Strudders rates it 6 out of 10 and Mini Strudders gives it 5 out of 10, the entrant who comes closest to 11 (over or under,...

Bonus Track - Batman

6/30/2017
More
Batman is my favorite super hero of all time, which oddly enough I did not mention in the episode (I'm assuming a podcast episode makes that obvious). I talk a little about my history with Batman in all its permutations, which is a lot. I hope you enjoy this episode, thank you so much for listening! PS - I thought Bill Finger was the artist of the original Batman comics, he was one of the writers. I think Dick Sprang did some of the art for the early comics. Pertinent Links A26GBG...

Bonus Track - Herman's Hermits

4/12/2017
More
This episode was inspired after Sarah and I went to see Peter Noone play down the road, something I have been waiting most of my life to do. I talk a little about the history of the band, but more about MY history with the band. Some of the things I forgot include the fact that their name came from the fact that Peter Noone resembled Sherman, from the Mr. Peabody and Sherman cartoon. I also forgot their movie appearances. They starred in 2 films of their own and appeared in another (none...

Bonus Track - My Year as a Paperboy

4/2/2017
More
Hi there, here's my first Bonus Track episode about working as a paperboy back in the 80s. The inspiration for this was an episode of Klickitcast, which is a podcast about Beverly Cleary books. In one of her early books, Henry Huggins has a paper route and it reminded me of my own paper route. One thing I had wrong was that the News Tribune merged with the Home News, not the Courier News. Thank you all again for your kindness and for listening, I hope you enjoy these bonus...
