    You fancy punk youngsters with your PS9 that's just a stand and a hard light projector have no idea what moving back in the '10s was like!
    I first recall playing Pong at a pizza parlor, circa 1975 or 1976, on a game machine that was about half of the size of a pinball machine. I think it would have taken two of us to lift that thing up and move it.

    I remember playing Donkey Kong in the arcade on a machine that probably weighed more than a refrigerator.

    I remember when my parents would take me to Davenport's Pizza Palace (still the best pizza in Birmingham, IMO) and they would give me a few quarters to play the Donkey Kong machine. They also had Galaga, but that was too much for wee little Peelee; Donkey Kong was where it was at.

    Godspeed, Jumpman. You served me well.

    His actual name, of coure, is Mario Jumpman Yoshison.
    An explanation of why MitD being any larger than Huge is implausible.

    As a matter of fact, I do. (note: Not all entries are indie rock)

    Weeeeeeeell, that depends on what you like. Smoky? Anything from Lagavulin is good; I really like the new 8-year 100-year anniversary style they've been producing. Sweet? The Nikka Coffey Malt is my favorite to sip like it was dessert, so buttery and creamy. You like the sweetness and notes of sherry-aged scotches? I like Dalmore and Aberlour. Prefer bourbon to single-malt? Garrison Brothers is my gold standard.
