The latest book I bought. Wonderful photos there! Here is  a synopsis from Amazon:

Synopsis
This work turns time back to the Stone Age of computer games in the early 1980s, long before Gameboy and Playstation existed. Desgner Jaro Gielens collected more than 380 originally wrapped, battery-powered oldschool computer games. The finest and craziest are presented here.

Welle Erdball -CDs

This is an alternative german music-group I really like! Their sound is very electronic -mostly using synthesizers, and guess what, a good ol' C64! Okay, I was the Atari-guy those days, but war is over! You probable won't like it unless you are used hearing alternative or independent music. Songs are in german language. Maybe give it a try and hear the samples at the Amazon-site!
