I remember countless charming hours playing Turbografx. Bonk's Adventure, Keith's Courage, DJ Jazz Jeff, Splatterhouse and those pinball games, Air Zonk. Man, there still has not been a game system invented that left the same impression on me. The games were these tiny cartridges and the system was called "Turbo" because each controller had a turbo button. I never owned one. My brother received it as a Christmas gift. When we really started getting into comic books, he traded it to our friends John and Derek for some comic books. Now our comic books just sit in their cardboard boxes collecting no value but collecting plenty of dust.

Memory: My introduction to pop music

I remember when I was first really introduced to pop music.  Previously I had liked a song here and there and I owned a Paula Abdul album (Spellbound).  However, I really only listened to jazz and classical.

I think I was in tenth grade.  It must have been 1995.  I remember that Jim Falk introduced me to Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and the Rolling Stones.  Shortly thereafter, I remember Austin Meoning playing Green Day for me in my room.  And I remember liking what I heard.

I remember running downstairs and informing my parents of the music that I had "discovered".  They smiled and humored me and soon after I started spending my allowances up at Music Master instead of at Video Game Master and The Vault (a comic store).

Back then I used to be able to buy a few albums with my $20/week allowance.  Nowadays that only buys me one album at Best Buy.  I guess I could still download two albums of MP3s for $20 but it just is not the same.

I remember that I had a childhood bully named Dane Fife. I remember that him and his sidekick Trevor came by my house one afternoon and started saying "Is this where you live?"

Because he was my bully and I thought he was making fun of my house I lied and said "No it's just my summer house". How lame.

But it get's even lamer. Dane clarified and said that he was talking about our mailbox. It was a very big mailbox and he was inferring that I lived in it. Very lame.

I remember that we used to have this neighbor who was a younger, blonde-haired kid named Jesse. He used to always want to be a part of our group but we were mean to him.

One day Kevin, Dan and Dave were over and we were out in our front lawn, probably throwing madballs over the roof or something. Jesse came down and wanted to see what we were doing and if he could join us. We fabricated a holiday to get out of this one. We told him that today was "Family Day" and that you were supposed to be with your family today. Dan and Dave were over on Family Day because they are my cousins. Therefore, Jesse could not hang out with us today but had to be with his family.

The weird thing was that I think I remember him believing it and going back up the hill towards his house.

Man we were meanies. Sorry Jesse.

I remember my brother used to have this 7 1/2 ' long GI Joe aircraft carrier toy.  The thing took up his entire bedroom and we used to be able to stand on it.  It cost over $100 and was the envy of everyone who came over.  Definitely, check out the pic for this one.  We used to play with our Joes on that for hours.
