This is not a regular episode. Today we talk about our sister Mari (Marz) who passed away at her home in early April. Marz was our older sister, teacher and protector and also our game playing companion. We talk about grief and how sometimes memories of life events are intertwined with games in ways we just don't fully understand.
We also have a very nice story contribution from Tony Longwoth and of course a new Tony Tune and new from the Into The Vertical Blank Scene.

This episode also includes a remastered version of "Sharpshooter", the Westworld themed story from way back in Season 1.PS: We will soon have new branding by professional graphic designer and podcast listener Daryl Litts.

Right before the Atari VCS, Star Wars toys, and Lego hit big in the 70's there was the 1977 Sears Wish Book. It's like an archive of everything "cool" before things got real. Every year in September or October, the Sears Wish Book would arrive in the mail, and our job was to circle the things we wanted for Christmas. In this episode we dive into the top-50 weird and wonderful products from the 1977 Sears Wishbook (plus some extras) You can follow along in the links below: Wishbook Pages To Follow-along: 60-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-212.html# 59-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-181.html 58-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-198.html# 57- Oops. 56-https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n_PeDI7eu0mTv1T6BVFwyowA-ZFspwJP9Yio-HV-uLk/edit 55-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-562.html# 54-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-604.html# 53-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-599.html# 52-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-479.html 51.http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-530.html# http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-338.html# 50-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-575.html# 49-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-352.html# 48-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-478.html# 47-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-477.html# 46-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-418.html# 45-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-443.html# 44-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-444.html# 43-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-468.html# 42-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-503.html# 41-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-410.html# 40-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-521.html 39-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-511.html 38-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-504.html 37-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-435.html 36-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-408.html 35-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-501.html# 34-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-506.html# 33-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-584.html# 32-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-580.html# 31-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-404.html 30-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-617.html 29-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-542.html 28-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-528.html 27-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-542.html# ...
