William Congreve once wrote that “Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast.” To that, I say it really depends on where you are and what you are doing. Ever try writing a children’s book while listening to Slipknot? It’s not a great combination, but the main point of conversation is how you listen to the music.
Back when the iiRcade was running through its initial Kickstarter campaign, if one of the financial goals was reached, there was a promise of a jukebox option being added to the iiRcade. Unfortunately, the goal was not reached, and jukebox was not to be added to the iiRcade once it was released. Within the iiRcadian community, this was by far one of the most requested additions to the iiRcade.
Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter.
He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few.
Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison.
His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
