Disco Pooh Record Player

Well, this weekend was quite great. It included putting together the Lego Fender Guitar and starting on the Optimus Prime Lego set. My wife did the Vespa and is working on R2-D2 now. All in all, it was a good time.

However, work was pretty awful this week. We had an influx of MacBook Airs that were in a mostly unmanaged state with student-enabled activation locks, so it is mostly to the Apple Store with them to get them unlocked and removed. But the other ones we received are going okay.

Below is the new-fangled October YouTube music playlist.

Weekly Finds

I pull a lot of the items about gaming and movie news here from a number of sources: The Atari Age forums, Retro Indie NewsTime ExtensionIGNRetro Hour podcastItch.io, Facebook, Twitter, etc. What shows up here will change weekly depending on what I happen to find in the wild. I try to include the original sources in the links.
