My car is an old school Nintendo

While my purchase of Sirius Radio has been well used and enjoyed, I must listen to my tunes using an archaic cassette-tape adapter. Needless to say, it's on its last leg (hey, I just used "its" and "it's" properly twice in once sentence!). Every now and again- too hot, too cold, too humid, too morning, you name it- the tape skips three times and ejects itself. One day, I thought, "hey it worked for Nintendo cartridges when I was 9", so I blew on the cassette tape and eureka!

To this day, when I'm able to listen to Left of Center, I get teary-eyed with fond memories of Soda Popinski, Link and the classic 4-play Tecmo Bowl.

For several years now, I've been kicking around the idea of getting an old, full-size arcade video game (probably Donkey Kong or Donkey Kong Jr). A guy I know has both of those in his basement. What a blast!
