Gettin’ Tumblrized


I asked SLP to help me find a way to automatically cross-post from WordPress to Tumblr, and she found this helpful article describing the available options, and recommending the WordPress plugin Tumblrize. I’m giving it a try with this post!

Update: Well… it doesn’t seem to work. Let’s keep trying…



It’s been easy to forget it’s winter this year. Last winter we had two huge storms bury the area under a couple of feet of snow before Christmas, and we didn’t see grass again until sometime in March. As far as I know, this winter we haven’t even had a single snow emergency, and the few times we have gotten an inch or two of snow, it’s melted within a week.

What’s a snow emergency, you say? I’ll let Wikipedia explain. Suffice to say Minneapolis is the only city specifically mentioned in the article.

Rusty Quarters Retro Arcade & Museum

I want to go to there. Rusty Quarters is in the Lyn-Lake area of Minneapolis, next to Bryant Lake Bowl.

I’ve been meaning to find time to head over to that part of town and check this place out for a while, but I just discovered a number of photos of the inside posted on Instagram. It turns out they have their whole game list posted on their website, but just from looking at the pictures I was able to identify the following games:

Rampage, Centipede, Joust, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Q-Bert, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., Track and Field, BurgerTime, Defender and Crystal Castles.

Yes… that’s pretty much perfect.
