Old School

Isaac and I found an old school nintendo on the internets this week. We shot a video for work yesterday. Plugging that thing in and pressing start on Super Mario Bros. was like time-traveling. So many memories. Much time was spent in our unfinished basement playing this joy box. Brenty, remember Paperboy? Wow.

I still suck at video games. I died at the first little mushroom demon like three times. Leah is pretty good though. We played after we finished shooting the video. I love my job.

Paperboy was the next best thing to Mario Bros

Man I hope you blew the dust out of the cartridges. There's nothing like running your mouth along the top and blowing out the filth. I think I started the blowing process back on my ColecoVision.

ColecoVision... reminds me of the heyday of Atari and Odyssey. and vax. and playing 'mary had a little lamb' on our first touch tone telephone.

You know children of the 80's everywhere will be contracting lung disease of some sort from inhaling Tecmo Bowl cartridge dust.
