I help record ARG Presents on Sunday (one of many shows). We’re small, but stupidly dedicated with an obscene amount of episodes spanning nearly five years. ARG Presents is a variety retrogaming podcast, but there’s also dedicated shows to the Amiga, ZX Spectrum, TRS-80, and most recently the Atari 1200XL.
@chienfou@spacemart It’s true. Our community is awesome! I’m always amazed when something shows up in the mail from Germany or Australia from fans just wanting to help us share our passion. The three of us recording are all just a bunch of schlubs yammering on about video games – the community we built, however, is full of artist, web designers, world travellers, on and on. We just happen to be the clump of magnetic glue that brought all these wonderful people together in the same place and the same time.
We are having my wife’s elderly parents over for a down-scaled Easter dinner today. They have been house-bound for a month and she has been visiting and bringing them groceries a couple times a week, so it doesn’t seem like such a big risk to get together.
It’s a 50/50 thing. This week is my work week so working (like now). Next week will be church with Mom, Pizza for lunch (Mom gets to have pizza and split a beer with my wife…) then projects around the house and maybe some horizontal mambo with SWMBO, time in the pool, and/or screen time with Netflix or Amazon Prime…
