I finally had a dream about beatmania the other night, BTW.
I was in some generic arcade after taking, like, the bus to get there (I guess it’s cuz I’m taking the bus today?) and I see that they’ve got beatmania 1st MIX all set up nice. But then I’m like where did beatmania THE FINAL go I know they had it!!! So I go into another room and I see this weird machine set up, like some sort of hypertrogulator-combobulation-animizer box from the 50’s with no screen and a bunch of flashing lights, and then there’s a Sega Master System on top of it. And some guy walks up and says “oh we mixed beatmania THE FINAL with this here Master System, there are still buttons, you can try to play it.” And I get all pissed and I’m like what the shit is this, why are you treating beatmania this way, you can’t see what’s going on, wah wah wah and then I try to dismantle the beatmania 1st MIX machine for some reason.
