  1. Great podcast. I loved the story about your track coach. I’ve always been fine with being called a geek, it was nerd that bothered me back then. Galaga is my favorite arcade game. I prefer it over Galaxian. I love the game so much that I own an upright as well as a cocktail table version of the game. I got my cocktail table version first and I actually used it as my kitchen table (covered it with a sheet when the ladies came over hehe) in my apartment back in the day. The upright came later from a local area auction purchase.

  2. Your old coach sounds like he was ahead of his time.

    I never played Galaga but my brother had one of those mini Galaxian arcade games which had a head-to-head mode on it so two could play simultaneously. It still works and now has been passed down to his son.

    Speaking of which, have a look at how this guy built his own mini Galaga. http://youtu.be/Hzje8tQlVik

    Great show!
    The sounds of Galaga and Galaxian are as classically arcade as Pac-Man’s waka tones and hearing (or just thinking) about ’em makes me wistful and reach for quarters in my jeans pockets.

    Never had the ‘geek’ title laid upon me, as I was raised in a francophone environment (despite assimilating anglophone culture 80% of the time).
    But I *did* have a fave T-shirt with an iron-on from Cracked magazine that proudly hailed:
    ‘I am a Vidiot’.
    (with ‘Please insert coin’ printed underneath)

    I’ll take it as a synonym.
