Ok, for years now perkiset has been riding me about the good ol
boy redneck back woods bible belt surroundings i am in... didnt really
know what he meant until i turned on non-dtv air broadcast television
at 5am on a saturday morning and heard this drunk fucker: ahahaha
i had to point the camera at the tv so i could share this is hilarious:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgc2Py7yA3U

later on he says that they have a 'multertude' of deals... hahaha

isthisthingon, you might recognize the artifacting in this video from
your raster copying and XOR 6502 experience... remember when you
could draw two lines too close together and get rainbow colors?

lmao

hahaha ya mang!  a hunert dollers wurth of cutlery!

fer only 49.99 plus processing.....

also in the video you can see that the webcam is faster
than the vertical blank of the tv  and you can actually
see it refresh in a few of the fraames... remember, the vertical
blank where you could snag the processor, JMP to a blank
page in (was that really considered memory? LOL) and run your own
code (i.e. see if a missile hit a player or something)
then JMP back  the computer got back and refreshed the screen...

i still start doing 6502 assembly code in my head when i drive and see
instruction codes in the license plates..  hahaha

But of course!  On the 6502 you had GR (39X39 little brickout style graphics), HGR (with a text window at the bottom) and HGR2 (full resolution).  By placing 2 lines together of certain complementary colors you could "create" a new one.  I loved to do this since those who didn't know the trick thought I somehow surpassed the 256 color limitation.  Talk about trial and error  ROFLMAO

Man, all this talk has got me hot for an Apple ][ emulator ... (have one, no fear) - I loved the simplicity of 6502. What, like 119 instructions or some such? Talk about simple... and REALLY helped focus how one thinks.

if you look hard enough you can find tapper, swashbuckler and oregon trail
disk images for the apple emulator...   and if you really are into the blocky

OMFG I totally forgot about karateka!  I LOVED that game!  One of my faves was Ultima II, which I happily dropped Zork to play.  Ultima II cost $72 brand new when it first came out.  I had a 10MB hard drive at the time and dual floppies (5 1/4 inch.  You know, the media that actually was "floppy"), which were invaluable for cracking games.  First Apple was a standard II and then perkiset convinced mom to get a II+.  We never went to the IIe or Lisa.  Damn the days playing Dark Castle on the Fat Mac and the Mac Platinum ruled.  [hehehehe..... merh.... merh..... ugh.uhg...uhg..... heheheheh.... ugh... merh... - sampled sound while throwing rocks at the nasties.]

With help from my family, I bought a Mac IIcx with the very first 13" color monitor for $4,660 (never forget that unforgivable price gouge).  The little vertical line towards the right side of the screen was totally annoying.  The Triniton technology actually used this line to hold the crt display in place.  Wow, I feel old.  Wait, I'll be 40 in a month.  I am old  Violin

Strangely not.  Some are considered "alternative" but others are still buried in the annals of hand mixed electronica.

On a completely different note, Idiocracy is perhaps my all-time favorite comedy, as well as my girlfriend's.  We've watched the movie more times than we can count and I think the truly brilliant humor was largely missed.  I showed her your profile pic a long time ago and she loved it. 

We've had tons of fun googling "Beef Supreme" and reading actual recipes on blogs.

ITTO you weren't hanging here when Jairez and I had a discussion about Dark Castle... I have a complete FatMac emulator and Dark castle installed on it if you ever are in the mood (it's TOTALLY friggin' great) ... the only problem is that it only runs on a Mac. As good today as ever though.

@idiocracy  - Ive auto repeated that one more than 100 times and i see it all around me...

Ive been collecting proof that we live in that world now here is an idiotic sign
behind a car wash... (10 second video) hilarious notice the trash on the ground and behind
the dumpster and sign that was professionally made now, to read:  NO DUMPING VIOLATORS WILL BE
PROSECUTE 100 FINE .. hahaha

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrdwSG9HXPc

before i saw the movie i made this ebonics soundboard with which you can use to talk to anyone
on any public transit system its six buttons that will do all the talking for you:

http://www.johnnylane.com/fun/ebonics2.swf

i see it all around me.. in va beach there is a mt. trashmore and one that is bigger than it being
built in hampton... you can literally smell thousands of dirty diapers when the sun hits it through
your rolled up windows on the interstate driving 4 miles by it.

On ads i get on aol:


[ see attached picture of ads that i got that remind me of idiocracy. ]

FIRST BASE GUM... ha! ill have a latte with extra foam...

at  the library where the multimedia and computer areas are pushing the printed
word against the walls and ultimately out the door ... the future looks grim to me...

thats what im talkin' bout!

Well, i just watched my portable tv analog signal for  the last time.. the DTV switch happened
at midnight so now that is really an ancient memory... tuning in an over the air broadcast

the day the tv died.
