I liked Jan from the jump when he joined the crew, but now I don't think I could ever imagine anyone else could have been a better hire at the time.

I have to ask... @janman , what is preventing you from supporting your local comic/games/hobby shop for all your Pokemon purchases?

@spiketail: I would 1000% prefer to do that! Unfortunately a lot of the stores here in the Bay either have low stocks or charge a lot more than retail for most items at this point.

Jan, your Target tale went in so many unexpected directions. Thank you for documenting and sharing!

The Vinny Factor of somehow always finding a way to make a game break in an amusing way. Lordy hahaha

Glad to see Jeff checking out Dreams again! Jeff, and others, might be interested in my game "Take That, Dragon!" Its a loving recreation of the pointed stick duel from Beach Head II, which I made after watching Jeff play the game (complete with scoreboard!):

I work at Target and hate these people with a burning passion.

These people can't be shamed because they have none. They used to spend literally all day just hanging out in the Toys or Girls department waiting around for the vendor, like a bunch of fucking creeps. We started the Virtual Line because we were tired of all the complaints by people who were actually shopping.

We're also limiting it to one item per guest, not "one of each".

They're also not allowed to camp out anymore.

My son is named Halden (same spelling as that Scavengers character). I've never seen it used as a name before... cool.

I didn't know the Pokemon/TCG thing was a thing. I wonder if people do it in the UK, it sounds fun.

@vinny Unfortunately those Scion mirrors don't fold. Mine was left dangling from the wires when someone swiped it driving past. Also just taped it up to keep it in place before I glued it back in.

Jan, your Pokemon card stories are like one bad box away from becoming the plot of Uncut Gems. Next thing you know a famous basketball player is going to ask to hold your shiny Salandit during a game so they'll perform better.

You don't need to do anything to get a Scavengers key, it's now openly available on Epic Games Launcher.

So glad to see a little bit of Dreams coverage. I hope Jeff keeps his word and continues to show off some more stuff in Dreams. There is a ton of really cool creations. Blessing Adeoye Jr. over at Kinda Funny recently put up a segment highlighting some of the best in Dreams right now. Anyone interested should definitely check it out!

Jan has a gift for seeing the drama in normal human interactions. This is almost as good a story as the guys out front of the coffee shop.
