Battle Of The Bulge World War II Reenactment Held In Annville, PA On January 31, 2015

Here is a Second World War Reenactment that was held on the Fort Indiantown Gap Military Base.  This event was part of the Bulge's 70th Anniversary.  The specific area was difficult to find.  There were no signs leading drivers to the location.  Plus, once I arrived on the premises, I did not see any information on where the German hospital demonstration was going to be held and the area for the Militaria flea market.  I never found the area where the hospital demo took place.  I found a couple Militaria buildings by chance ... one was far from the initial one that I walked into.

Despite the severe lack of organization at the event, the Military flea market lived up my expectations.  Here are the artifacts that I purchased [an American grouping and a German grouping (including German-occupied Belgium)] ...

Space Attack Video Game Played On An Atari 7800 Prosystem And A General Electric Television Set

Tonight we have Space Attack.  This game was released by Mattel Electronics in 1982.  This cartridge is from my childhood days.  Who knows who bought it - most likely my elder brother.  The first part of the game is difficult to understand (the part with the mothership and the invading enemies).  The second part is awesome (the space battle).  I played this a lot in the 1980s and I have been playing it often in 2015.  This video features two tries: a win and a loss.

A very fascinating fact about the game is as follows.  The enemy spaceships are Cylon Raiders from Battlestar Gallactica.  Mattel thought that it could seal a deal with the owner(s) of Battlestar Gallactica and it never happened.  Mattel was far along with the development of the game thinking that a license could be granted (Mattel had already produced action figures for the sci-fi series).  Mattel did not acquire the license and since the game was already completed or almost completed, they continued on with the game and gave it the name Space Attack instead.

I am playing the game on an Atari 7800 ProSystem (1988).  I am back with my first 7800 system.  It seems some games are more compatible on one or the other (very similar to my experiences with records and turntables).  I did not realize until tonight that there is a dark line running through the screen as I was playing.  The television set is a General Electric Model 25GT511 (1996).  It no longer gets channels/stations and horizontal bright lines are stuck on the screen - I am used to them most the time.  It is like that in the previous three videos too.  I suppose I was too much into the games to notice.  My Mom wanted to throw it out.  I wanted to see if the television would still play VHS tapes via the VCR.  It did.  I then checked to see if the old Atari 7800 still worked.  It did ... and hours later, I played video games instead of getting stuff done around the house.

Berzerk Video Game Played On An Atari 7800 Prosystem And A General Electric Television Set

I'm back with a lil more Atari action.  This time I have Berzerk from 1982 (the Atari 2600 era).

I am playing the game on an Atari 7800 ProSystem (1988).  This is not the system that I used in the previous two Atari videos that I posted.  I have two 7800s and I tried this one out.  It works much better.  That was good ... a lucky break.  The television set is a General Electric Model 25GT511 (1996).  It no longer gets channels/stations and horizontal bright lines are stuck on the screen - I am used to them most the time.  My Mom wanted to throw it out.  I wanted to see if the television would still play VHS tapes via the VCR.  It did.  I then checked to see if the old Atari 7800 still worked.  It did ... and hours later, I played video games instead of getting stuff done around the house.

Five Sh*ts (Aka The Lytations) - My Pretty Little Girl

Some more White Doo Wop for you.  This is the other side of the record that I played the other day.  The group with the crazy name is back with another fine track that puts the band members' talents on display.  As far as I know, this is a 1973 pressing of a demo from 1963 or 1964. This is a really neat cream-colored 45.  Some of the "information" on the label is bolonie.  I am spinning the record on an Audiotronics 304E turntable.  The guys who recorded this track were also known as The Lytations, The Kaptions, The Five Scripts and The Beatles.  One member of the group, Jack Strong, has his own Doo Wop radio show on Sundays and Thursdays at this website: http://www.doowopcafe.net/schedule.html.  I tuned in last Thursday as a matter of fact.  He plays some great, obscure material.

Five Sh*ts (Aka The Lytations) - Stormy Weather Homemade Video

I have some Doo Wop for you today ... specifically White Doo Wop.  We had some stormy weather in my area yesterday and I thought I'd film a sample of it so I can get a lil bit of that "Drip Drop Drip Drop Drippety Drop" as an introduction and segue to the song.  A perfect day to film this record spinning on the Audiotronics 304E turntable.  I even included an outro.  The band name on the record's label is Five Sh*ts.  I laughed so hard at the name, and while reading the comments on their videos here on youtube.  As far as I know, this is a 1973 pressing of a demo from 1963 or 1964. This is a really neat cream-colored 45.  Some of the "information" on the label is bolonie.  The guys who recorded this track were also known as The Lytations, The Kaptions, The Five Scripts and The Beatles.  The song was written by lead vocalist Jack Strong.  Jack is here on youtube, and provides insight into the song and the band in the comments section on another video of this song.  I also want to give a special salute to the first tenor of the group, Frank Torpey Jr.  Frank served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, and passed away a year and a half ago on June 22, 2013.  RIP.  Jack can be heard on his own Doo Wop program on Sundays and Thursdays at this website: http://www.doowopcafe.net/schedule.html

This post is for Petie.  I do take requests!

Video Pinball Video Game Played On An Atari 7800 ProSystem And A General Electric Television Set

Here I am with my second video game video.  This time it is Video Pinball made during the Atari 2600 era (1981).  This was one of my favorites in the early 1980s.  I am playing the game on an Atari 7800 ProSystem (1988).  I played the advanced setting with the openings on the bottom left and right sides.  I took a beating from 3:06 to 3:34.  I lost my balls at 3:06 and 3:21 during that time and I was close to losing my third ball at 3:24.  A crazy play took place from 3:27 to 3:34.  The ball was about to fall into that side pit so I used the nudge feature and, to my surprise, I did not get hit with the tilt penalty.  I was shocked that I could use the nudge option for that many seconds ... perhaps that pit is the exception.  Shortly after, I was close to getting near the bottom right opening from 4:30 to 4:39.  I even accidentally guided the ball over to the opening at 4:34.  I lost my last ball at 6:05.  Two of my losses were due to the right opening.

This was recorded yesterday.  The television set is a General Electric Model 25GT511 (1996).  It no longer gets channels/stations and horizontal bright lines are stuck on the screen - I am used to them most the time.  My Mom wanted to throw it out.  I wanted to see if the television would still play VHS tapes via the VCR.  It did.  I then checked to see if the old Atari 7800 still worked.  It did ... and hours later, I played video games instead of getting stuff done around the house.

Worm War I Video Game Played On An Atari 7800 ProSystem And A General Electric Television Set

A General Electric Model 25GT511 television set in my home no longer gets channels/stations.  My Mom wanted to throw it out.  I wanted to see if the television would still play VHS tapes via the VCR.  It did.  I then checked to see if the old Atari 7800 still worked.  It did ... and hours later, I played video games instead of getting stuff done around the house.  Here I am playing Worm War I from 20th Century Fox Video Games and Sirius Software.  This is the same cartridge that my brothers and I played when we got it in 1982 or 1983.  I was 8 or 9 years of age.  Hours of fun.  I think my brother bought the Atari 7800 ProSystem in 1988.  The G.E. television was purchased in 1996.
