I live stream 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games on YouTube ( at least once a week on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. Eastern, and sometimes on other nights if I have time. For my ongoing “NES Alphanumeric!” series, I’m blind-running my way through the unplayed games in my collection of 370+ NES cartridges, in roughly alphanumeric order from 1943 to Zen the Intergalactic Ninja. My live commentary typically covers writing, parenthood, gaming, television, current events, life… whatever. Please feel free to watch, hang out, and talk about anything!
