1. You were kidding about the "Bjork" performance in Summer Games, right???

I hope you're kidding.

2. This might be a controversial idea/question, but can you do "annotations" in your Youtube videos as ad placements for your books? I generally hate annotations (especially those word balloons) and usually turn them off, but who knows, someone might actually click on an annotation ad at the bottom of the video and go to your Amazon page. It might be an idea worth considering (or rejecting).

Rob, you are brilliant. Plain and simple. I didn't even think about that.

I'm not sure if you can make a link in one of those annotations or not. I will try it and see!!

In fact there are adventure games on YouTube that work by making annotations that link to other videos

Well, that settles it. My

Well, that settles it. My next Matt Chat will be called "Vintage Games the Infomercial." This adventure game will be solved only by clicking on the annotation to the Amazon page and buying the book at a special markup! There will also be achievements and easter eggs. The achievement is earned by buying a hundred books and ten vacuum cleaners. The easter egg is a hidden video that displays a Bjork video playing on a Sega Nomad. :P

Coming Soon: Matt and Bill's Vintage Games Rejuvenating Cream! Look ten years younger just by rubbing this under your eyes while chanting load"*",8,1.

Then there's Dungeons & Desktops Super Secret Formula for Synaptic Dysfunction. Each application guaranteed to give you an unwanted sequel or your money back and back again!

And for those with floppy Atari 5200 joysticks...Dr. Mark's Spanish Centering Ointment! Just smear this on that joystick and stand back!!!

Love Matt Chat

Hey Matt,

I just wanted to let you know how much I have been enjoying Matt Chat these past few weeks. I missed some of your earler Matt chats so I need to go back and watch them still. I am looking forward to that.

Summer Games was an old favorite of mine. I think I preferred Summer Games 2 and Winter Games though. I also really got a kick out of the Caveman Ughlympics back in the day. The "Clubbing" event where you had an 'intimidation" phase prior to bashing each other with clubs used to always make me laugh. Nowadays we have games like "Mario and Sonic at the Olypic games" on the Wii which carry on the tradition of these great games.

Thanks for making Matt Chat and reviewing classic games. It sure brings back some memories. Keep up the excellent work!
