There’s nothing more nostalgic than the design of the Nintendo Entertainment Center. Don’t have a spare lying around to decorate your desk? Cubeecraft has a handy print-out that lets you make your own. I’ll post a pic after I make mine later!

Ps – they also posted the Dreamcast.

no more bulliying

The Autumn Society, the group of artists in Philadelphia whom you may have heard of from their 80’s Pop Art Show is putting on another event that I wish I could go to. 8-Bit and Beyond looks like it’s going to be another awesome show.
