JAILBIRD MASTER LUMINARA!

"IT'S NICE TO KNOW THAT YOU'LL BE THERE IF I NEED YOU"

Not only my all-time favorite song by Diana Ross, but my favorite song, period.  The Carpenters and Freda Payne also covered it well.

COPS: TAZED AND CONFUSED

You know I can't resist a good zapping!  Especially when somebody belligerent and out of line is involved.

FUN FACTORY: THEN AND NOW

Most of the fans refuse to give any lineups of Fun Factory beyond the original group a chance and diss any of the newer incarnations of the group.  I see it as new members being passed the torch from the previous member and it's still the same group.  I'm that way with The Supremes and any other group with interchangeable members.

NES GAMING: Q*BERT

Unfortunately a PC controller can't be used with the NES emulator I use, so for EACH jump made, you have to press down TWO arrow keys.  Once you get good at it, you give your fingers quite a workout.  One thing I don't like about the NES version if Q*Bert doesn't hop from cube to cube as smoothly as he did on the arcade or even the Atari 2600 versions. 

All of the early home platform (Atari, Colecovision, etc) versions of Q*Bert only included either Ugg or Wrong-Way hopping on the cubes' sides or didn't bother with them at all (Atari 2600).  NES includes both of them, adding to the challenge of what made the arcade game fun in the first place.  So basically Coily and the red ball were the only "bad guys" in most of the original home gaming versions.

My favorite thing about the NES version is Coily's fangs.  Look at his cute teef!
