Analog Game System Symphony

My buddy, Sam, from Grad School turned me on to this video from WIRED.COM¬†about a guy that created a symphony using computer parts and vintage/old video game consoles and computer parts. The composer’s name is¬†James Houston. The piece demands respect but the song is mediocre at best. That said, I think his geek factor makes up for whatever the song lacks.

Classic NES

Today I added the Wii to the game room so that my wife, Lauren, could get her old-school video game on. She’s not much of a gamer but she has a video-game-boner for NES games. As soon as I hooked it up she started playing Super Mario 3. In other news, I need to come up with a better name for this “game room” because the current name just isn’t cutting it. It’s got a sort of rustic cabin feel to it so I’ll have to incorporate that into the name somehow. I’m sure something will come to me at some point.
