The true-life story of Robin's first encounters with video games and computers. Check out the video here: youtube.com/watch?v=djQ1Qk-9xbo


When I was 10, I became obsessed
With video games and the like
I dreamed of Donkey Kong, Pong and then
Space Invaders through the night

At school we had a Commodore PET
We wore out the "A" key
Acid Rain, Weather and that
Dungeon game filled the screen.

Then I bought a Timex Sinclair
I began to learn how to hack
But I couldn't get it to save or load
So I promptly went to bring it back

Then I went to Duluth and was about to buy
A VIC-20 when my mom or
My dad said the wisest ever thing
"Why don't you buy a C-64?"

Oh yeah!

So I got my 64 (x2)
I adore my 64 (x4)
