The whole time I was reading the blog I was thinking to myself "Alamo would totally do this. Alamo would totally do this." I should have known that Tim would already be on it. I'm so glad I live in the MAGNITED STATES OF AMERICA and that I live near an Alamo THE-A-TER.

In the unlikely event that you missed this when it made the rounds about a month ago, please watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6w2M50_Xdk It's one of the most inspiring things I've ever seen the internet produce. Pale blue dot, indeed.

Both E.T. and Raiders were written by the same programmer, Howard Scott Warshaw.

The first video game easter egg I ever encountered unintentionally was while playing E.T. on the 2600. I was never able to successfully reproduce the circumstances and my memories of the game and era are largely centered around telling people about the crazy easter egg and not being believed. Seeing those screenshots takes me right back to that place of adolescent futility. I haven't thought about that easter egg in years, but now prompted by your post and helped by google, I see that my recollections are indeed accurate... The flowerpot turned into a Yar from Yar's Revenge and flew away instead of just being revived like it was supposed to. http://www.digitpress.com/eastereggs/26et.htm

"Lastly, Wil Wheaton signed on the foil tag on the back and in carrying it around PAX getting other signatures, some of it rubbed off a little." Way to ruin it for everyone, Wil! :) Seriously, though, this is really cool. Hope it fetches a ridiculous price.

Looking forward to receiving mine (I got the tracking ID email this afternoon) although I'm bummed it won't be autographed. I'll need an autographed copy as well to complete my collection (complete with domokun).

I you ask me (which nobody did), Linklater is ten times the director that Tarantino is. Tarantino peaked with Reservoir Dogs, had a solid followup with Pulp Fiction, and he's been jerking off ever since. Linklater keeps doing solid work and you can plot his growth from film to film. (ignoring that whole Newton Boys mess) He's going to be the one we're still talking about in 20 years. This has been "my mostly unrelated soapbox for $100", Alex.

Yes Yes Yes Yes. Primer is absolutely outstanding. The commentary on the DVD is also worth a listen, although they spend more time talking technical than they do plot/development. I can't recommend Primer enough.
