Pop Culture League Challenge: First Quarter

First Quarter

What’s your earliest arcade or video game memory?
It's back baby! Some of you may remember the League of Extraordinary Bloggers weekly challenges created by Brian of CoolandCollected.Com  Now those blogging challenges are back with a fresh coat of paint and rebranded as The Pop Culture League!
Now on with the show.  I was born in '83, so I came into this world just in time to be molded into a Nintendo fan boy.  You may remember I have actually already posted about my earliest video game memory when someone with Man Crates randomly contacted me and basically wanted free advertsing from me on their Retro Crate, a crate that I had never heard of before, but whatever, check it out HERE.
You can read about my earliest video game memory above, Super Mario Brothers, still the best!
 Which leads me to this...

Don't ask me why it's so hard to find a good quality clip of this.  Probably copy right infingement or something stupid.  If I actually watched any of the Olympics I would have loved this.  Long live Mario!

Since I have already shared my thoughts on Mario before, I thought I would touch on the next video game I encountered that wasn't part of the NES library.  No, I'm not talking arcades, though I would later learn to appreciate such classics as Mario Brothers, Dig-Dug, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, among others.  My next experience with video games was in the classroom.  I'm talking Oregon Trail ya'll!


Man, dysentery claimed many a soul!  Once my brother was bit by a rattler.  Basically most of what I remember of this game was diverse ways to die in the wilderness. Fun and educational!  I wish this game would finally get the reboot it deserves!  Oh, wait...

Rising from the grave for Halloweenathon 2016!

Things have certainly been quiet around here and I totally blame Instagram.  That and playing way too much Minecraft, the fact that my Mac is in my kid's bedroom/family room, and having dropped and broken 2 phones in the same week.

If you are a loyal DI Treasures follower then you are in luck, I will still dust off the blog and bring you breaking Halloween news, thoughts, sundries, and trivia EVERY SINGLE DAY during the month of October as part of the CountDownToHalloween.com challenge.  This will be my 4th year as an official Cryptkeeper, check out them badge/links on the bottom right there.

Then it's 13 straight posts from December 1st-13th in honor of Creepmas 2016! I may also throw in a few posts in September in honor of the beginning of the wonderful Autumn season, not to mention Thanksgiving and my 33rd birthday in November.

So, I hope ya'll's enjoy, even if my dear wife and my Mom are the only ones even following me now, bless them (happy birthday Ma!). :)

If you can't be bothered with Blogger anymore, follow my super secret hashtag on Instagram, #Halloweenathon2016 and feel free to post any Halloweeny fun under the same hashtag.  I'm @spacemason on Instagram by the way, give me a follow if you like.

Anyone else having a blogathon for the month of October?  Or, will you be taking on the Drawlloween and/or Inktober challenge as well?
