Six years ago, I got called "The 8-Bit Guy" when a bouncer pulled me in to meet Trent Reznor and Rob Sheridan at a HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS show. And now, here I am, invading The 8-Bit Guy's space as he stole my title. 😉 🤣

In Austin, even trees can win awards, apparently. This one was a long time coming!

I'm in Austin! Never been here before, so my friends said I should check out the views at Mount Bonnell. They don't disappoint! Also, a cactus with an attempt at rocks installed into it. #scenery #scenic #nature #landscape

What's under the hood of that ominous keypad unit from yesterday? Well, I also have an original AY-3-8910 demonstrator board with a ceramic AY. #chiptune history!

A fun piece of #chiptune history, this is an AY-3-8910 demo board, fitted to a case, and used as a car alarm for a 1972 Dodge Challenger #YM2149

What's up, friends? Is this #chiptune? #chipley #FL

I meet the creator of the AY-3-8910/YM2149 in person in 18 hours and plan to play him a small #chiptune selection. Send me your suggestions.

Crazy Thought Thursday:
Is everyone who knows what a BBS is, or is into #retrocomputing, #retrogaming, or #demoscene stuff, online these days? Have we left anyone behind? Is it possible some hermit from the Internet but still want to talk retro? Muse about possibilities with me.
