Not the best written book I’ve ever read, but it’s great to have all this stuff documented (especially the “Prince was big on Mattel Intellivision” bit that I never knew)

This one had been on the list of lists for a long, long time. Had the Henry VIII burger (“A kitchen specialty since 1941”): add blue cheese crumbles and bacon. Solid, but probably not in my metro burger Top 10…

Combined with my new Minnesota Historical Society membership (thanks again, MK/EJ), this was a fun double stop: watched the lighthouse movie in the visitor’s center for the first time, then hiked down to the beach

🫑 Geezer video game flashbacks

Posted May 2, 2024

The link the other day to the Electronic Plastic site was fun, as I forgot just how spoiled I was as a kid. Out of the 35 games listed, I think I had 12 of them (Brain Baffler, Auto Race, Football and Football 2, Baseball, Space Alert, Armor Battle, Sub Chase, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer and Red Light Green Light).

I also came across a post about the Microvision and I’d completely forgotten about that device. Need to finish the Intellivision book too – so many fun memories of that console too…
