Don't you know a cute, red-headed Internet-geeky type chick (who was also on Eureka) who runs her own production company? I realize that Eureka was probably bleeding expensive to produce, but still... ... one can dream. And then bring back Firefly while you're at it.

And what was the stupid game where you were climbing the outside of a building, and people dropped flower-pots on your head? Wasted too much time and quarters on THAT one. Ai-yi-yi.

Playing Tempest and Star Castle, a tiny arcade in Coquitlam BC with my buddy Bill. Sometimes, skipping school to do it. Discovering Tempest at that same arcade, thinking it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Donkey Kong, however, brings up amazing memories of the second decent home computer we had. My dad bought a Radio Shack CoCo II, and nobody else in the family ever figured it out. I must have spent two months typing Donkey Kong in Basic, hoping that THIS TIME I'd get it right, and it would work. Saving the file to cassette tape. The nights spent in the basement with glorious 4K of ram! Wow.

Oh man! Shakeys' Pizza. In Coquitlam BC we had Farrell's Ice cream right beside it. Those were some awesome memories. I don't think we'd invented video games yet though.
