Into The Vertical Blank : Generation Atari show

Into The Vertical Blank : Generation Atari

Summary: A Podcast about growing up In the 70s and 80s, at the dawn of video games, navigating family strife, punk rock, Star Wars obsessions, and trying to understand to the world while developing an inexplicable love for everything “Atari”. -- We are twin brothers who grew up "Atari" or as we call it, in The Vertical Blank. The Vertical Blank is space between the lines. It's the the second half of Generation X. It's the where work occurs you never see on screen. It's the nuances that makes nostalgia real. It's the transcendental location that holds our best memories, biggest joys, greatest fears, and our most terrible losses. In this podcast we discuss Atari computers and systems, new and old, review new games we collect, talk about all the systems, and the significance they had in our lives and the lives of others, and even talk about them in an historical context with the backdrop the times they were released, and how they are being used now. We do all this in an effort to finally understand the answer to this existential question: what does it mean to have grown up "Atari" in the generation of the Vertical blank. Credits: Written, Engineered and Produced by Steve Fulton @fultonbot and Jeff Fulton @8bitrocket Branding by Daryl Litts @daryllitts

Into The Vertical Blank: Growing Up Atari Season 1 Episode 1 – All The Scan Lines Have Been Written In this, the real premiere episode, the boys pull out all the production stops to bring some much needed levity and interludes to a game playing session and discussion on modern releases for the Atari 8-bit computers.  Games discussed and Played: Stunt Car Racer, Bosconian, Time Pilot, X:8, Crazy cat and more. Show notes and links: Also, be sure to check out the Inverse ATASCII Atari 8bit and now ST Podcast. We did not realize that on his podcast Wade has an assistant much like “Emily” (our rude British AI assistant).  We have given Emily a part-time role and put “IRATA” in her place. Also Wade assistant’s is not and is not nearly as rude because Wade is much more of an adult than Steve or Jeffhttps://inverseatascii.info/ Game Links Stunt Car Racer for the Atari 8bits – Download and infohttp://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=7541 Bosconian for the Atari 8bit (disks 439 and 440)http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php?idx=9#DISK440 Time Pilot for the Atari 8bit computers http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php?idx=9#DISK435 X:8 for the Atari 8bit Computers http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php?idx=9#DISK401 Crazy Cat for the Atari 8bits http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php?idx=9#DISK435 Mr. Do for the Atari 8bits – well worht your time although we only mention it briefly http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php?idx=2#DISK090 More info at the great Atari Mania  Site http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-mr-do_3568.html Places to buy cool stuffLotharek’s Lair - https://lotharek.pl/ USB Joysticks (Sorry, I can’t find the Legacy Engineering site anymore): https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=usb+atari+joystick&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=234386298647&hvpos=1t1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14703023243788741373&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031026&hvtargid=kwd-2242960344&ref=pd_sl_5tpm0rgmz3_e Atari Sales / Video 61 http://members.tcq.net/video61/main.html Excel Magazine http://excel-retro-mag.co.uk/?v=79cba1185463 Info on Atari 8bit Graphics modes: http://gury.atari8.info/card_graphics_modes.php The Atari Box Pre-Order: https://atarivcs.com/ Good Atari Forums Atari Mania: http://www.atarimania.com/atari_forum/index.php Atari Age: http://atariage.com/forums/ Atari,io: http://forums.atari.io/index.php?/   Emulation, Disk and Cart Images ready to run Atarionline.pl – in polish, but can be translated http://www.atarionline.pl/v01/index.php?ct=nowinki&ucat=1&subaction=showfull&id=1525095667   Altirra: http://www.virtualdub.org/altirra.html   8bitrocket’s 8 Tokens for a Dollar Song: https://soundcloud.com/jeff-fulton-1/8-tokens-for-a-dollar   8bitweapon https://8bitweapon.com/
