Loot: Boxed NES, 22 games, and some pawn junk

I got my tax refund back and decided to go hunting.  I went to the Pawn Shop down the street and picked up a few games I didn't have and probably paid a little more than I should have.  Picked up Cruisin' Exotica for N64 which completes my Cruisin' series (Exotica, USA, and World).  It cost me $12, I could have probably found it for cheaper but I've not seen it out in the wild ever, so I figured what the hell.

Loot: Update over the last month

I figure my video game collection is a huge part of RetroGeddon.  The games I go out and find good deals for are ultimately what people will end up playing (hopefully) when they come over to my house and share in my Boom Boom Room experience.  Here are some solid finds over the last month for me.

Boom Boom Room: Floored it (video)

Boom Boom Room: Floored it

A week ago when I started ripping up carpet and tack strips, I remember thinking "Can't wait to get this floor down this weekend, should be awesome!"  Though I was right, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  In retrospect, it would have been like saying "Can't wait to get beaten over the back repeatedly with a lead pipe this weekend, should be awesome!"

Installing a floor, no matter what type, is hard work.  It cost me  $800, roughly.  I still have giant cement boogers lodged in my face.  Every joint I have is sore because repeatedly standing and squatting over concrete takes its toll unless you're Mickey and it involves weird goat romance.  But back to floors, here it is, look at it...

Boom Boom Room under construction

 If listening to rap in middle school taught me anything, it taught me that the "Boom Boom Room" is a fun and majestic place.  Rappers back then loved to mention the Boom Boom Room, an actual nightclub in San Francisco, and praise the glorious amounts of fine booty and Tanqueray it amply provides. Fifteen years later as a grown man and new homeowner, I still continue to call the fun room in my house the "Boom Boom Room" and this week I'm remodeling that mother fucker so we can geddon inside of it.
