so yeah, who's up and for what reason?
I'm setting up my new iGoogle right now. Mmm.
but seriously folks: it's 10:20 am. Why wouldn't you be up?
because i've got a deadline to work to tomorrow, and EVERYTHING IS BROKEN. no, i'm not running DiS.
There's no reason to get up in the morning. I mean that in a good way.
pumping 20c coins into the machines at Timezone.
though a chain of video arcades does indeed sound awesome.
imagine being a 13-yo with a pocket full of change and 40 minutes 'til the bus home is due. Imagine the sounds of dozens of early-model arcade machines, pumped up to maximum volume, and the string of flashing lights around the coin change window. Imagine crowding around the original arcade version of Double Dragon and taking turns at getting all the way through with no deaths. The picture thousands of similar 13-yos doing exactly the same thing across hundreds of arcades across the continent.
Now, is that not an image of Utopia?
you had to go to the seaside to get that when I was little.
