Round 14!





 

Well, since I did the shut down screen, it's only fair that I do the boot-up screen, too!  Here it is, Windows 95 in all its glory.  Trouble was my favorite board game growing up, and everyone I know had a Tamagotchi at some point or another.  They were as annoying as Furbies, and some people got in trouble when they beeped in class.  Wishbone was such a cute dog and a fun show, and posting the Yak-Bak reminded me of my Talkboy I used to have for recording stuff and making goofy audio clips.  Here you are!

  3. The Talkboy is great. All those things would be really cool, if you'd still have them... but somehow everything from the 80s/90s got lost in the 00s. Maybe that's what the industry wanted, since they are selling us the exact same stuff again today, but more expensive this time.
