Since I've been running websites from the early 1990's, I've collected all sorts of disparate pages, some only a few mere bits of info and others just stupid ideas I forgot to houseclean. The purpose of this page is to give you access to all these little projects, and making them available to the usual range of search engines, lest someone have a need for them. (One doesn't often go to a place called COW.NET for things other than cows.)
|THE ARCADE BONEYARD
|Besides being the owner of a full-size video game (Asteroids) I have a lot of interest in the entire Arcade industry, going back several decades. One field of study I've delved into is collecting pictures of machines that have had their insides ripped out and replaced with other games than they were designed for. Some of these items become works of art in themselves.
|JASON'S SCANNED PHOTOGRAPH SCRAPBOOK
|As you would expect, I've had a lot of pictures taken of me over time. I would find a funny one, scan it in, and put it up. You can now browse through all the pictures I've amassed, in one place.
|THE CHECKER MARATHON
|I am the proud owner of a 1978 Checker Marathon, which most people identify as being a classic form, massive leg-room New York Taxi. Now there's less than 3,000 still running, and I'm still learning things about it. Everything I'm learning, I'm going to be putting up on this site.
|JASON SURE LIKES TO DRAW STUFF
|In college, I was drawing a heck of a lot; something like 5 or 10 drawings a day. In class, in my dorm, wherever I could find a flat surface. Some of it was pretty OK, so I've been scanning the best stuff and sticking it in this directory.
|5 WOMEN GAMERS REDISCOVER LOST LOVES
|For some reason, this article about a collection of money-laden ladies from New York City travelling down to Virginia to buy some old video games charmed me enough for me to transcribe it and scan the pictures. It's simple stuff, but how often do these articles go by, anyway? They're all proud they were able to capture a little childhood. A chintzy story, but like I said, I was charmed.
|JASON'S MOVIELAND FAN PAGE
|I steadfastly refuse to explain why I like this obscure band from the 1980's so much. But I've put up a page with all the information I have on them in the hope that I'll find much more.
