The Atari Dig - my souvenir from gaming's greatest urban legend


Just posted a new video - getting back to gaming a little bit for these next couple. Many of you no doubt know about the great video game crash of 1983 and Atari's literal dumping of various games in a landfill at the start of it, and I'll bet a lot of you have actually watched the documentary "Atari: Game Over" (though if you haven't seen it, I've got a link in the video description on YT).

But you may not know that some of the games that were finally dug up in that documentary were put up for sale. I have one, and I talk about it in this short video.

This is the first of a new series of short videos I'm calling "Turbo Mode" - these are basically going to be to keep content flowing while I work on longer stuff. (Hint hint... I am working on a longer video right now.)

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.

About Me

My photo

I'm married. I like to travel. I have no kids. I have a house... that I'm bad at maintaining. I used to collect classic video games. I own a lot of musical equipment that far outstrips my ability to use it. When I was younger, I was in a band. I like gadgets, and I'm an Android guy. Someday, I would like to live on a different planet.
