Please put an end to this tawdry state of affairs by sending emails for next week's letters page to here: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a fact: I used to live in a flat in the same building as Ashby Computers & Graphics. Who that? Why, it was the the company that used the trading name of Ultimate Play The Game.
I left after a few months because my flat mate was a scummy scumwad with pet 'dragons' or something, that ate crickets and 'flies'. Well, I'm not sure about the flies, but whenever I'd get home the place was full of them. True facts indeed.
Dear Biffo - can you draw a picture of the last dream you had? Thanks.
I've spent the last few days nosing around various bins for the items you requested in last week's letters page, but I must admit defeat. That said, I thought I'd show you a selection of the treasures I did manage to find on my travels:
- An issue of The Beano dated April 13th 1991 (Nintendo competition has expired).
- A paperback copy of Tennessee Williams' 'A Streetcar Named Desire' (it's no Cujo, but it's alright I s'pose).
- An Audience with Freddie Starr on VHS (unfortunately still in perfect working order).
- Four dusty, pirated copies of The Haunted Mansion on DVD (because just three is never enough).
- A pair of trousers (slightly soiled).
- A can of de-icer (dangerously rusty, will probably leak LOL!).
So I guess the moral of my tale is that provided you go about your business in the middle of the night and keep the noise to an absolute minimum, you CAN have a good rummage through Mr T's bins. Cheers, T!
Digi didn't like you but that was ok,
'Cos I played games on you everyday.
Batman and Robocop were faves from Ocean,
Swapping disks for Street Fighter gave me sickness of motion.
Switching mouse and joystick led to frayed wires,
We laughed at Atari ads, for they were just liars.
When time to go we built a pyre,
Poured lighter fluid on and set it afire.
I saw your soul to Valhalla, it flew,
Got yelled at for plastic fumes and that though
Tapas means lids. Have you ever thought of using Mr T's bin lids to eat snacks from? If so, why?
Quite a while ago, I was dismantling an old desk at my parents that was part of my childhood gaming setup.
In the bottom drawer, among boxes of joysticks, I discovered a Sonic biscuit (packs of them were manufactured by Burton's biscuits in the Sonic 2 era). I must have accidentally dropped it in there while I was gaming; I used to open the bottom drawer and use it as a footrest. The biscuit was probably about ten years old.
My question is: have you ever discovered any mouldy gamer food during your rummages? What are your preferred eats when gaming?
Have you seen that Walkers have started doing sandwich-flavour crisps? Cucumber and salad cream. I kid thee not. Works better than it has any right to.
Incidentally, if anybody can get me a box of mushroom-flavour crisps from Ukraine, I'll reward them handsomely. I've looked everywhere online, with zero success. They were the best crisps I've ever eaten. Though that might've been the radiation affecting my tastebuds...
I am Mrs Alice Jameson,from united Kingdom,nice to meet you get back to me thanks?
Sorry if that was a little graphic. I'm just trying out some new material to make me appear more dynamic and edgy on stage. It probably doesn't work. Oh well. Anyway. Sorry if you were offended. I suppose I'd best go. Here are my jokes then. Hope you like them. Bye. Yeah, bye then.
