Introducing the oldest machine in my collection! This Chicago Coin TV Ping Pong from 1973 that I got for $25!
It’s essentially a near perfect hardware clone of Atari’s Pong arcade board with a very similar cabinet, but a much bigger TV! You read that right, not a monitor a LITERAL off-the-shelf G.E. Black and White television!
The board’s not working right now, but I’m going to give it a shot at fixing it. This is new territory for me being an entirely TTL (transistor logic) based game!
The Magnavox Odyssey 3000 was the first console my family owned. I was pretty impressed with the design and the styling. It only played variations of pong but you could adjust the size of the paddles and speed of the ball.
Dave Lucitor is probably Mewman, but I wonder if he might actually be from Earth…?
It just now occurs to me that Tom has always had more of a grasp on human culture than Star; he’s familiar with ping-pong, video games, boy bands, karate movies, and he even has a (presumably) human life-coach. Maybe Tom discovered these things on his own, or maybe Tom is actually half-human, on his father’s side.
Either way, I need an episode about Tom’s family. I want to know how his parents met and what exactly it means for Tom to be half-demon; is that common in the Underworld? So many questions.
But in the meantime–HEADCANONS. GIMME ALL YOUR LUCITOR HEADCANONS.
My boyfriend’s workplace is so strange to me, it’s full of vending machines, ping pong table, every video game console ever, and other random things like arcade game consoles and…electric guitars and amps?
I am used to working in a basement warehouse with literally NO windows where a guy who was paid more than me would occasionally scream at me.
