I was picking up some of boxes of stuff from my Grandmother’s house yesterday, a few board games and Colorforms sets when at the bottom I found an old battered notebook. While it had originally been purchased for school of course, once I was bit by the Dragon’s Lair bug it quickly became a scrapbook filled with photocopied magazine articles on Don Bluth and the “success” of the Laserdisc game and it’s saving of the arcade industry. It also became the place that I applied the Dragon’s Lair stickers I hoarded like a miser…and still do to this day.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these stickers. I would proudly point out that “I have conquered Dragon’s Lair” sticker to anyone that would look at my notebook…though it was due to a Laserdisc skip, it glitched and jumped to the point where Dirk hurls his sword into Singe. So in my young mind…I had sort of won the game.
Look at how much blood there is when Dirk cuts that tentacle!
I didn’t have time tonight to scan all of the notebook but I’ll certainly share more when I can!
