An Atari Story
Posted by: Vinnie Vindicator Jun,07.2017-11:27 

Once upon a time there was an old, middle-aged, depressed, autistic loser still stick in the 80's. He was a little bit overweight, a little bit depressed but managed to hide it well. If you call living in your parents basement, eating microwaved cheese macaroni and chocolate brownies for every meal, masturbating to hentai porn every day, and letting his real Atari gather dust to be "hiding it well".
But over the years and decades this, EVEN THIS, existence grew tiresome.
He got less satisfaction from it, and fell into the vice and traps of 2017, of social media fixation, of silly apps on his phone, always looking for attention on the internet (forums, Facebook, youtube, amiga-lemon, atari-forum, pouet), trolling, provoking, playing the victim, uploading his shitty 16-colour pixel graphics to Instagram where nobody followed him.
It was a pathetic existence and today he was empty. He opened a browser tab for facebook, for the news, closed facebook, opened it again, around in circles. Hoping for that sweet, sweet red colour of activity, attention, validation, of direction as to what his listless mind should do next.
He checked atari-forum, pouet,, several times per hour in a loop, looking for something, anything to bring meaning to this moment.
ALL OF A SUDDEN he thought "Oh, I haven't been to Crap/Misc for a while, I wonder if they're still satirising Charles and his midi friends over there? Maybe I should pretend to be Charles also, and join in the in-joke".
So he went to, and opened the Crap/Misc board. And he saw a new thread called "An Atari Story" and he clicked on it and started to read. The story was about him. It was uncanny.
By which I mean, if you didn't get it yet, that this story is about you. The loser is you.
