Winamp

- 3 minutes, 506 words
I had stumbled onto a website today Winamp Skin Museum. This site brought back lots and lots of memories.. Back in the late 90s I had upgraded my computer from a 486 that couldn’t quite play mp3s to on that had some sort of AMD processor in it. I want to think it was an AMD K6. The thing that relates to this post is it could process mp3s. The computer also had a larger hard drive.

It Was Awesome To Hear From An Old Friend

The other day I got a message through Facebook from a friend at the mountains daughter. It’s been over 20 years since I’ve been to 8 bees and that long since I’ve seen him or his daughter. We drank lots of beers together and we went to see Black Sabbath in the mid 90s. I rode my quad all over the place with him on this three wheeler. I called him after she gave me his phone number and we caught up a bit.

Every once in a while I see a post or something that reminds me of old school ECW when it was still based in Philly. I had only discovered it by accident one evening in the mid 1990s I was looking for something to watch and came across this thing on TV called Extreme Championship Wrestling on the old sports channel. It looked interesting so I watched it. There was blood and weapons and didn’t look as blatantly fake as stuff I saw as a kid.

I Wish I Still Had My Old Game Systems

I make it no big secret that I tend to enjoy older video games a bit more than newer ones. To me they tended to be a little more fun to play. They were less focused on graphics than current ones but that’s because the technology wasn’t there back then. Visually the less realistic graphics tended to be better for my eyes. There was better contrast but I am in the small minority there.

Remembering My Cactuses

I was recently remembering some of the odd things I liked when I was growing up, particularly around elementary school age. One of those things was I liked plants but especially cacti because they were unusual or at least didn’t grow outside around here like your typical green leafed plants do. I probably learned about them in school or something but this type of plant was just something I found very fascinating.
