Morecambe and Wise…and Atari

A set of early 80s TV commercials promoting the excitement of playing Atari VCS. You have Morecambe and Wise, and also in one instance Trevor Brooking. So many things I love brought together in a few short clips. And Trevor Brooking. See them echo the I’m a Mac/I’m a PC with the boring technophobe Ernie brought into the word of gaming by the savvy Eric. See how much better it is when you unite the two worlds, rather than compete with each other. No need to respond with confusing Jerry Seinfeld commercials here, it’s all clear. Well except that once he’s got Ernie hooked, it leaves him free to do some snogging.

Tired but chilled

Long couple of days just past, but with satisfactory results. Sunday was spent helping support at work move into the new building, in the main testing phones and PCs. A nice little bit of overtime that will come in handy for New York. Then today was starting in the new building. I thought that it was going to involve two bus trips, but it became apparent on my first trip to the new place that it went a much handier route than I thought. Basic result of that is going to be an extra half hour in bed more than I thought, so that is all good.

Other than that, nice meal out with S&T and their friends for a birthday, and thus a bit of a hangover for Sunday ;) Got me in a good mood for the week
