Five Years of Talking to Myself

Five years ago, I bought an Atari Flashback 2 and I loved it so much that I wanted to write something about it. But since I had no idea who would care about such a thing, I figured I'd need to create my own platform for it. Nearly 200 posts later, here I am, still writing things nobody is going to read about things that nobody cares about but me. It's not the most rigorously-maintained blog, but I think that's for the best -- it speaks to how far I've come toward freeing myself from this money-eating, time-killing hobby. I've gone from being a total addict to finding some balance. I've made some progress reining in the pretentious bullshit and toning down the blatant fanboyishness. I've dabbled in making some games of my own. And I've written a few things that I'm pretty happy about.

So here's some of my personal favorite posts from the last five years. If this continues to be fun, maybe I'll make some more.
