Cleaned up a little!

I suppose the main reason I think these room updates are relevant for me to post here-I really am pretty exclusively Twin Galaxies, is why I bother, AtariAge is my mistress, so to speak, lol, but I really am a "TG bred" gamer, almost.

Particularly with the collecting-I did NOT collect when I first started here, and with the MAME/EMU/Flashcart availability I even scoffed at people (in a friendly way) about why they "needed" stuff.

I suppose I understand, now, haha!

Got a new shelf, did a massive cleaning, figured I'd walk ya'll around!

Birdie(Sissy)makes an appearance-I'm in it for the long haul, but Conures AREN'T for everyone.

Just us weirdos.

:D

    OK-this sounds SOOO bad-I kinda just play music anymore 'cause I can, lol, the drive and ambition is gone-I pretty much got as good as I ever expected I could be, not great, but competent, but I honestly put that "try" into the games anymore, I was never a good songwriter, the real key to "making it" in music.

    But to answer the question-pretty diverse, haha-on electric, I play mostly metal stuff almost, old Metallica, Shinedown, GnR, Skid Row(lol)-on acoustic, I tend to play the wussiest stuff you ever heard, haha, Matchbox 20, Cindy Lauper(seriously...), Madonna(again...seriously, lol!).

    Now, I also play the keyboards as well-I've played guitar since I was a teen(long ago...), but relatively recently taught myself the keys, one of my best buds, old drummer, came over and piddled on a cheap keyboard I had lying around, primitive Linus and Lucy, my Wife went nuts, kinda pissed me off(kidding), and I went on a Vince Guaraldi kick, so I mostly play jazz piano!!!

    Anything but country, tbh, I just can't do it-grew up around it, but my ears don't adapt to it, for some reason.

    Bass-haha, I can play almost ANYTHING with strings, Uke, etc-except a bass-supposed to be an easy string instrument, but not for me!!!

    I've lost so many of my skills-Skating was one of my FAVORITES, I so wish I had my interpretation down on video when I was decent!!!

    As a player, you might can tell-I'm actually left handed, tho I play guitar right handed-when I play keys, my left hand is "autopilot", but I do struggle with my right hand.

    You've *almost* got me wanting to see if I "still can", haha!!!

    :D

    Cool room.


    Hard to explain, Man-

    My head is a mess. My life is a mess. The World is a mess.

    And I just don't care.

    :D

    But my room?

    That's the exception, haha!

    No way is it honestly clean by housekeeper standards, but I really do have a somewhat OCD thing going on with keeping it straightened up!

    Nice Tab cola. I can see you are a man of discriminating taste.

    I hadn't seen it on the shelf in years, and I think there was an "unhealthy" tag attached to it?

    Went to the hospital to have my first kid, and right there in the vending machine-TAB!!!

    Was the only place I could find it, so I guess that's mebbe why I had a couple more kids, so I could go to the hospital for more TAB.

    (Obviously, some "Storytellers License" there at the end...).

    I remember seeing Tab at my grandparents house occasionally. I was fascinated by it because I had never seen it before. Much later, as a young adult doing grocery shopping by myself probably for one of the first few times ever, I saw some and bought it. I was disgusted by it as it was apparently a diet soda with out the prominent "diet" labelings :D Similar thing happened with Fresca.

    I'm there, and a bit more. Right now, I take more care of my cat than myself.
    You sound like a gaming version of "Kes". His house was messed up, but his kestrel shed was immaculate.
    I have no such shed, nor man cave, heh.
    Bring in the tornado strength leaf blowers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Nice one, budski.
