Y’all can skip this if you want…
So I’ve spent several days building Maximus Arcade systems for all my vintage games. I was thinking how cool it would be to do a build for an arcade game cabinet…. because it’s the quintessential geekdom “MUST-HAVE”. I was all prepared to blog about it… and then I got the news that another one of my friends passed away suddenly.
Life is too short. Everybody is always in such a big damned hurry to do a ton of shit that doesn’t matter… and we forget to live. Yeah, guilty as charged.
I never told my friend how much he left an impact in my world… how much I appreciated him and his wife of 35 years. When I thought there was time to do this… I missed my opportunity. I think it’s time to get out more… do a little less geeky-loner shit… and a lot more living… with PEOPLE. You know… real-life human beings. Wow. What a concept, huh?
Tom tried to teach me that lesson, once. I should have listened.
Rest in peace, man.
