A Bass Guitar Made From... a C64?

Yes indeed. That is a Commodore 64 being used as a base guitar. It's legit too. As you'll see in the video, the sound passes through the SID chip, and you can even change the waveforms.  Makes for some very interesting sounds.

Genre: Shoot 'em up
Company: Taito
Platform: PC Engine

By: Chris "Sledge" Douglas

An anthropomorphized fox gets slammed against a wall.  A female of the species looks on, seemingly concerned.  It seemed like furry bait at first, and if that's all it was, it would have me a bit worried.

Pasokon Sunday - Emulation Software - パソコンサンデー パソコン新時代!! エミュレーションソフト (1987)


What I thought would have been an interesting episode showing early attempts at what we know as emulation... just ends up being a very dry episode teaching their audience about the mechanics of emulation in excrutiating detail. Later they bring up "desktop emulation." Yawn.

This may be interesting to some who may be interested, but for me, it was a snoozefest with very little going for it.

My Two Cents On The Whole Zoe Quinn Thing... - DA DERP!

Of course, I've never been one to shy away from saying "me too" when it came to an interesting already discussed-to-death topic, so here we go!

I have no concern about the woman's sex life. I have had great friendships with those who are monogamous, polyamourous, whatever. You can live your life however you like.

I am a little concerned with the state of gaming journalism, as I believe it's a microcosm of what is happening with mainstream journalism. There's a bit too much of "lemme give you something for a good review of my game" in today's industry. It's pretty much like how in the mainstream major news outlets don't report on a lot of things that legislators do, because they're afraid of "losing access." Sure the dynamic is a bit inverted, but I hope you get what I'm saying.

But I've heard enough of this stuff lately. It's time to focus on something else.


So what if it's 7 years old!? It's still incredible.

When CP/M had a chance to be as pervasive as DOS...

Hilarious stolen image aside, it's true. At one point, CP/M was in the running for IBM's main operating system. Of course, we all know the nod went to Microsoft. But, in this edition of the Computer Chronicles from 1995, we get to hear about not only about this, but we get a great rundown of the life of a man who was (and still is) a software icon.

I personally was all about CP/M when I was a kid... mostly due to the fact it shipped with my Commodre 128D (which, unsurprisingly) I STILL own.

Sadly, this past July would have been the TWENTIETH anniversary of his tragic passing.

So here's a rabbit puppet talking about an old dial up service...

Sure it's public access... sure it was made contemporaneously to the service itself... but I...

I don't even know what this is.

Apple Macintosh Forerunner Apple Lisa TV Demonstration from 1984!


Recorded in 1984, this computer, which sold for $10,000 dollars by the way, was as mentioned in the title, the forerunner to the Macintosh.

In fact, the OS has A LOT in common with the first version of MacOS, and thus, much in common with today's GUIs.
