Introduction I’ve been a Star Wars fan since the original movie came out in 1977. My second love as a kid was video games. I’ve been a video gamer since Pong was a home system. We had an Atari 2600 and later a 5200. A few years later I got my first computer: a TI-99/4A. It wasn't long before I was editing hex sprites in a BASIC ripoff of Space Invaders to make the ships resemble an X-Wing and TIE Fighters. My dad would take me to the local bowling alley on Friday nights to play video games and I'm proud to say I can name about 90% of early 80s video games by sound alone.I didn't get into the Nintendo craze until the Star Wars game came out, then I got my first credit card! Many a Saturday afternoon was spent in front of the tube watching Creature Double Feature on WLVI 56. And from this came a lifelong love of giant monsters/insects/spiders and cheesy sci-fi and horror movies. And those movies are also likely the root of my other love: Halloween. Of course, most kids love Halloween anyway but as I got older I really started digging into the history and traditions of Halloweens past. Now I haunt the streets of Salem, MA every Halloween scaring locals and tourists alike.
