  "So the other night, I was looking on Craigslist and came across a post for "Arcade game machines". Well, I always look just to see what things local people have (which usually isn't much), but this one had "broken Donkey Kong" tagged on the end of it. I know my friend Stacy is always on the lookout for a Donkey Kong and the price was only $250, so I tell him he should go buy it. The seller says he doesn't know if it's the monitor or the PCB that's causing the trouble. I bet Stacy that it's the monitor and, given the shape of the cabinet, he might be able to have a working DK for around $500-$600. The next morning, Stacy calls the seller and talks to him. After drinking a little too much the night before ( oppps ), I'm asleep on Stacy's couch and wake up to... a pillow in the face. WAKE UP! WE GOTTA GO GET THE DONKEY KONG!" - DAHLOR [read the full story here]

   "...Having got all that out of my system, Dragon's Lair is my latest obsession. It's insanely fun (also insanely difficult) and is pretty much the best arcade game of all time. I mean, full 2D Don Bluth animation that you can control? Awesomesauce. Also, Dirk and Daphne are an awesome couple. He's just so adorably dorky, but she totally goes for him anyway, even being the hottie that she is... - Tell-Me-Lies (artist nickname) - [see the full picture here]

 03/10/09  - AWESOME Dragon's Lair poster!

    DL poster
   "Another month, another awesome group theme from the autumn society of philadelphia! for august's "8-bit and beyond" show, i chose to illustrate my take on Dragon's Lair, the most gorgeous (and simultaneously frustrating) game of the 1980's. i had a chance to work out the sketches for this piece on my trip to LA last week, and i think the finished piece has retained some of that sun drenched 80's west coast vibe." - Tom Whalen / StrongStuff- [see the poster here]

 21/09/09 - ROADTRIP : Tank Attack ... by SuperUlly!


    "It's arcade roadtrip heaven at the moment! In my opinion every gameroom should have a couple of classic black & white games which started it all and which tell the story of how it all began. I'm trying to get a collection of the earliest games together like Computer Space and Pong. I already have the first ever driving game, Gran Trak 10, i'm preparing a Pong replica, i have my hands on a yet to be revealed game and today i made another score TANK!" - SuperUlly

   DK Ully

    "I've given up hope to have a full american-style nintendo row (the donkey kongs, popeye and mario bros.) in my (yet to be) gameroom because those cabinets are almost impossible to come by in germany (and even in europe) and when you're lucky to score one, they usually cost tons of money. it IS possible to get one (as André and Bruno have proven) or you could 'scr33n' one yourself ;-) , but a full row..
Therefore i've decided on a new plan of attack"
