Game Collecting

So President's Day is here and what do I decide to do? Why go out hunting for older video games of course. It's not as easy as you might think. Back in high school and even some times in college, going to a thrift store or second time around store was a regular thing. Thinking back I remember piles of Atari games, consoles and the like. Well, it had been a while since I had gone, but this crazy itch to collect is getting to the point where I'm just not going to stop it. I tried a Salvation Army to start... nothing but a few controllers for systems I'm not aware of (which, in all likelyhood, I will go back to buy after some research on them). Next up was a American Volunteer shop across the street... jackpot. There was an Atari 2600 surrounded about 42 games and a Sega Genesis. The prices where ridiculous but I went with the 2600 and 19 games for $40. This brings my Atari console collection to:
Atari 2600 - Model CX-2600 1978 or 1979 not sure yet. It is not the Sunnyvale, CA 'heavy sixer' but a six switch wood panel none the less. It does have the Super Service sticker.
Atari 2600 - Model CX-2600 A. This is the first four switch with wood panel.

Want to find out what Atari Console you've got? Go to, but make it quick, otherwise you'll end up like me.

Great Lakes Brewing Co.

Not all is amiss in Cleveland. Great Lakes Brewing Co. makes a few great beers. First let me say that putting a picture of the metal you won on your beer label is either idiotic or stroke of whatever. Bottom line is the taste and in taste is succeeds. Right now I'm enjoying the Dormunder Gold. Obviously a German style beer, being named after a town there. It is close to a Pilsner. I'm snacking on Gloucester with Stilton and Colburn cheese depending on what type of GL beer I'm drinking at the moment; which now would be the Edmond Fitzgerald. The best thing about this flavor is the name. Come to find out the Fitzgerald was a ship that sank. Cleveland rocks. Prolly the better tasting as of right now between the two I have mentioned. Sharp, with a honest to goodness coffee flavor. Believe it or not I would prefer this over a Rogue. However, since I am going through a few of these, the one pictured is the Dormunder.
