The first major step toward Retro Geddon is underway: I put in an offer on the house and it was accepted. In one month I'll be moving over my retro-collection and other junk I own like two cats into my new abode. I have so many dreams for what I want the gaming lair to be that for the past two nights sleeping on my stomach has caused some severe disruptions in blood-flow to my brain on account of my engorged house boner. Much of it is inspired by grand-master Tim (I should say, Tim's house. Tim doesn't directly do anything for my boner. Though, what happens at FagMess stays at FagMess), the rest of the inspiration is borne from my mistaken belief that I have unlimited time and money.

The Lady and I ventured to the two houses shown in the first blog. I liked them exactly opposite as I thought I would. I thought house one would be a bummer since it was a little bit outside of Christiansburg and further away from the neat stores and such. I also thought the second house would be better in terms of location and have a much bigger downstairs area for me to build RetroMecca.

If there's anything I've learned from VideoGeddon proper it's that space is of utmost importance. What grandmaster Tim has been able to do with his house is amazing. The VideoGeddon house, nestled among other ordinary homes, rests on a wooded hillside and appears as nothing more than a typical suburban abode from the road. But one step inside and shit gets real in a hurry. The house is no small dwelling and provides enough room for several arcade machines, TV's, XBoxes, portable mattresses, high end recording equipment, and of course flip cup.
