This song was a challenging labor of love, written for the Atari 2600 VCS, my first video game system. Early video game programmers worked intensely within constricting limitations to create compelling games that fueled the imagination. In my youth, I spent countless hours fighting enemies which existed more in the mind than were apparent in the pixels on the screen. This was a life lesson of sorts that I've learned often translates to real life too.

With 'Weapons of Past Distractions' I wanted to try to capture that feeling in song with a bombastic drum and bass track that pushed the limits of the Atari 2600.

The 10 year anniversary of this project is coming up - time enough for a proper release. This 'Digital Album' presents 'W.O.P.D' in a dynamic remastered version available for download. For purists, a small amount of the original Atari 2600 cartridges is also available.
