Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off some talk about renting videos and the need to get out of the house.

From there we take on At The Movies where this week we saw Marvel’s latest joint.. Black Panther. I’ll tell you all about it.

Then it’s onto The Main Event where I give an indepth look at a Comic-Con I went to in Concord California. It was a TON of fun!

For the last segment we have some toy talk, mostly about Star Wars Dolls and then we end the show with a new philosiphy I want you guys to embrace. E.L.E or Everybody Love Everybody!

This Boring Life Ep.8: Baseball And Baseball Card Collecting

Hey kids! This week we have a little something different. An All New Episode of.. This Boring Life, where every episode we will explore The Secret Origin Of IseeRobots. One Topic At A Time.

The topic for this episode? Baseball and Baseball Card Collecting. This episode may come across a bit disjointed. I actually started it back in Oct of 2017 but then the big fire started so I sort of fell of sced and was finally able to finish it up. It’s a ton of fun though. Don’t worry.

We cover a ton of Baseball Video Games that I played, Baseball Stars, Earl Weaver Baseball and others before moving onto my passion for Baseball Cards. There is talk of shops, shows and popular cards of the time.

Don’t worry man, if you don’t like baseball it’s all good. It’s mostly about video games and card collecting.

It’s a super fun episode! Give it a listen and make sure to tell a friend!

149 – Wall Ball by Avalon Hill

Hi there, thanks for your patience for this episode on Wall Ball from Avalon Hill. I was finishing the editing on Wednesday morning when Sarah went to work. We thought the front porch was wet, but it was covered with ice. She fell and it was very scary, she was in a lot of pain. I ended up bringing her to the doctor to find out she had bruised her ribs. She is doing better now but the pain sneaks up on her still. Thanks to all of you again for your patience and well wishes. Extra special thanks to Hoji and Kate Scott, who both helped me with this show by telling me about the programmer, Duncan Scott. Duncan sadly passed away in 2011, but when I contacted Kate she was very gracious and willing to help. She got together with her mom and they both answered the questions I sent. Thank you both so much! Next up is the prototype for Tempest, by Atari. This is readily available on Flashback systems and also on Atari Age. I would love to hear your feedback on Tempest which you can send to me at 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. Please send it to me by the end of the day February 18th. Thank you so much for listening!
