Hi, David. I've posted your comment and I hope it helps, though this blog is barely alive any more.

Hi Matt,

My name is David Moncrief. I am the son of Rick and Carrie Moncrief. My Father was one of those coin-op guys. I am writing this because I recently had the red coin-op shirt stolen from me and am searching for a new one. Is there anywhere I could get one of them? It was my favorite shirt and sentimental, all of which mean nothing to the idiot that stole it.

Mrs. Mobley was a likle teeny toddler when I met Matty Boy, and Annie was born just as we started The Wonders Of Science. I answered and ad on KFJC for a bass player. I didn't even audition; I just played Matty Boy a tape of Prologue's version of "Call It Off" and he told me I was in! We were the Generics for several weeks until we joined forces to fire the rest of the band.
Some day I may release the Living Room versions of "Let's Start A Rumour" and the best song we never released "Motive And Opportunity."

These stories are pure pleasure, yes keep them coming. Wow, loving this. You got mad skilz wid da wurdz.

It is interesting to see the roots of bad management... The 80's set the the tone.

Deep sigh.

But I do luvz me sum Particle Man. Thanks Matty.

Hehehehe - my word is nucklz!

Actually, I met Padre Mickey before I left Atari. The first version of a band we had together was with a drummer who worked at Atari and a French guy who liked rockabilly who was a guitarist. I had to fire the drummer and Mickey cut the guitarist loose and we began looking for other bands that would take us in as a package deal, until we decided to go it alone.

All of this must have happened before you met Padre Mickey. I remember you working at Activision, but I don't remember hearing about the Atari stuff. Then again, I was really young at the beginning of the 80's. It's really fun reading about this. Keep it up!

Well, Splotch, every ounce would be a lot of ounces, but I do promise I have two more Atari stories which I will relate tomorrow and Saturday.

You must empty every precious ounce of your experience at Atari onto this esteemed blog! I beg of you!

Love,

A 2600 Geek who still plays Adventure from time to time

Oh, yeah. Free t-shirts from companies are some of my favorite perks ever! (The Prima Donna shirts weren't free, and they weren't from the company.) Activision was absolutely fantastic about giving away free stuff when new games were released.

Along the same lines, when I worked for Apple in Software Quality Assurance (bug testers), we were given t-shirts with a cartoon of a beaver with a chainsaw standing over a very large bug, pleading for its life with the deathless line, "Not me! I'm a feature!"

Shows you how far we've come--now you don't have to give the money back, you don't have to testify, and you can just lock the door to your Oval Office and tell the cops to stick it. All that and STILL be prezdint.

Man, I love this backstory, Matty. Don't you wish you still had some of those old t-shirts from days gone by?
