We were so pore we actually had that video game. Other kids made fun of my PONG knockoff but it was basically the same. Couple of years later when the Atari 2600 came out of course I had the knock off version from Sears. Again, was the same but not branded Atari so also got made fun of for that. Fvck, I'm old.  :blush

A eulogy for RadioShack, the panicked and half-dead retail empire


This may very well be RadioShack's final holiday season. Jon, a former employee, looks back on a strange, craven, five thousand-fingered strip-mall monster from a forgotten age.

I'll take a set of the "no-license" walkie-talkies.

Hope I don't get busted.



Tyvw, Steve!

1977, I was a junior at the university in the first city on the Mississippi that will remain forever nameless because the football coach was fired for telling the brother not to play that had lyrics like "nigger this and nigger that" and likely was hoping for a new 8-track but likely got a flannel shirt. Pong might have been at the mall. Fvck, I'm old.
