It was a mild Southern California December, the year was 1998, I was listening to Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve and Sex and Candy by Marcy's Playground in my 84 Celica. I just got my first pay check from the Cafe and I was headed to Best Buy to purchase my first console since the Classic NES. No mom and dad this time buying me stuff just my own blood & sweat working for minimum wage + tips. I picked up the first generation Playstation in near SantaMonica and drove back to Highland Park. I must of played Crash Bandicoot till my fingers were sore as that's all I could afford at the time! Later on I purchase other games including FiFA 98 but it felt really good to bring a cool electronic gizmo home for X-mas that year!
