• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

How quickly we forget how well off we are…

We live in the Age of Wonders!

“Now my day is completely ruined.” Sometimes the words come out of my mouth, and sometimes I either read them or hear them from others.  In our microwave society, we demand instant gratification and intimate convenience.  In doing so we forget how well off we truly are versus the generations of people who came before us.  How much nicer would we be if we remembered to count our blessings and thank our Maker for the gift of living in a time of miracles and wonders!

If you can’t see what I’m talking about, watch this classic monologue by Louis C.K. while he was sitting in a guest chair for Conan O’Brien‘s television show.  It’ll remind you just how fortunate you really are!
