Consumer Addiction

I am a bit addicted to consumerism. Almost as much as I am to sugar.

I was called into an office building to do some work, it went fast, but I took a photo on my way out.

I don’t normally do anything for Halloween, but I remember I bought this mask for a party in Chicago back in 2019, so I wore it briefly to take this photo.

Excuse my hair, I had a NES hat on the entire day.

Here’s kind of a secret game room in Minneapolis. It’s open to the public, but only some people know about it.

Speaking of NES games, these were sold overseas. I picked this up years ago, along with so many other games. I kind of lost track of all the games I’ve owned over the years, but, in the last few years I’ve cut down on them dramatically.

As some of you know, I am in Pat’s book, the Ultimate Nintendo: Guide to the NES Library.

This is actually a Jackie Chan game titled Jackie Chan’s Action Kung Fu.

I recently picked up some more Famicom games, replacing a copy of SMB3 I sold awhile back & picking up Super Mario USA aka Super Mario 2 (in the U.S.) for the first time on Famicom. Of course I’ve owned the game since I was a kid & beat it when I was 7 years old. I bought this bundle from a Japanese vendor & it included SMB1, SMB2 USA, & SMB3. I’ll clean up SMB3 a bit & put it in my Famicom collection.

Check out this cheddar burger! Honestly, Culver’s hadn’t given me a good burger in awhile, so this one came out of nowhere.

I still have this hacky my friend gave me in the 90s. I used to keep everything but I lost a lot when my family raided my storage unit while I was in Hawaii.

Now look what a water company built. If you don’t know, Vivendi owns UMG which distributes Def Jam. Vivendi evolved from a water company founded by Napoleon III of France.
& now look at what tobacco money built – of course the Wilfs who are fraudsters according to the State of New Jersey, will reap all the rewards

Random blog thoughts, yes, we developed an online game titled Star Trek: Strange New Worlds in the 90s. I sent an idea for a TV show many years ago based on that game. I also submitted ideas such as Lower Decks & Captain Worf. However, they’ve made it clear that they want nothing to do with me. Rod Roddenberry said to me one day, why can’t you just be a fan? I’ve stopped speaking to him after that. Aron Eisenberg & I remained friends until he passed away. I remember when Aron showed me his script for the final episode of DS9. Everyone signed it. He was well-liked.

Look at the price on this TV! 65″ for $398! Anyways, I don’t even own a TV nor do I watch TV, but that seemed pretty good to me.

I bought some socks & these VW T1 toys. Typically I keep toys like that in the box & sell them later when the price goes up. It just depends. I had a lot of success with these particular toys. For example, I bought a Toyota truck from Back to the Future & sold it later for hundreds of dollars. Typically I buy stuff with some kind of following, such as Coca-Cola.

Ash recently made it into Fortnite!

I was going to write more in this post, but my host is having issues today. I’ll be back with more at a later date.

bought a case, not bad

The Offspring

One time, 20-something years ago, at Somerset, The Offspring blew up the transformer & there was a downtime & then they were back on with a new transformer. They were jamming & word was sent that the transformer was getting extremely hot & they decided to see if they could make it blow, & they did.

When he collaborated with Layne Staley on this song with Mad Season, it was quite entertaining. If you’re looking for more, it’s out there. However, there is only so much since Layne died young & now Mark has passed.
