Interviewed on The Static Hour with Don Kurtz!

I just finished my live appearance on Don Kurtz's The Static Hour. Give the replay a listen. On his show, we talk about all sorts of things, including the Jets (they won!), videogames, computers, fitness, and family. Don has previously interviewed all sorts of other people, including porn stars, musicians, and our very own, Matt Barton. It's an honor to be included in such a diverse interview pool...

Just a final reminder that Vintage Computer Festival (VCF) East 5.0 is Saturday, September 13th and Sunday, September 14th, at the InfoAge Science Center in Wall Township, New Jersey, USA. For more information, please visit: http://www.vintage.org/2008/east/ . Unfortunately due to commitments with the book I will neither be attending nor presenting this year, but it's not because I don't want to. If you can make it, I highly recommend the event.

The Goodnight Gamer - Episode 1 - Parts 1 through 4

Well, it's been quite some time since I've bothered doing any on camera work (2004 to be exact) and I was kind of itching to do something a bit different again, so I came up with the idea for "The Goodnight Gamer", where, late at night, after my family goes to sleep (and already in my "jammies"), I go downstairs and do quick 10 minute or less episodes covering all kinds of (mostly vintage) videogame and computer content, much like Armchair Arcade itself. This first episode breaks that rule by being much longer than 10 minutes (hence being broken down into four parts), but was necessary to provide the baseline tour of the "facility". The idea is to have fun and knock these out quick - in one take - with minimal editing and post processing from a cheap flash memory-based pocket camcorder. I'll of course refine the concept over time. Enjoy and I'd love to hear feedback (bad and good). Thanks! [Note: I had to use Revver this time due to exceeding 10 minutes, but I'll get it down for the next episode so it also fits YouTube]

Sega Genesis + 90's Cheese = The New Adventures of Captain S

Captain S uses the rare Sega Mouse!Captain S uses the rare Sega Mouse! While Internet only TV shows are common, it is rare to see ones devoted to the gaming crowd. One of the more amusing ones is The New Adventures of Captain S, a parody of the Captain N cartoon combined with the cheesiness of 90's sitcoms.

The plot involves Chad Belmont discovering he has the power to be sucked into his Sega Genesis in order to fight his evil nemesis, NES. Only 3 episodes have been produced so far, but the best by far is the most recent one, All's Fair in Love and Sega.

Philly VGXPO this Weekend!

Just a reminder that the Philly VGXPO is this weekend. While I have other commitments this year, I went last year and it was at least a decent source of classic videogame merchandise, if not quite as interesting to me as when it was under the "Philly Classic" name at a different venue.

Here is AtariAge's press release on the subject:
