I’ll admit it upfront: this post is something of a copout. But it’s a topic that definitely evokes lots of nostalgia in me, so I figured, what the hell? I’ll fix it up a bit, put a more personal spin on it and re-post it here. Think of it as a “director’s cut” of sorts.

This was originally written for RetroJunk early last year, and garnered some pretty positive comments. It wasn’t a smash hit or anything, but I felt pretty good about it. It’s one of my first attempts at writing “article-style”, and was one of the pieces that led up to me starting this nostalgia blog.

Hopefully, at least one of you will enjoy it.
