Dear Reader, I must admit, I sincerely miss writing for this blog. This doesn’t mean you can expect any frequent posts in the near future, however – I simply can’t promise that. What I can promise is that I’ve found the perfect gift for your significant other.

Haunted House cardigan
This may look like a gag, but trust me, it’s 100% real. Upscale fashion chain Nordstrom is selling a very expensive women’s cardigan emblazoned with the spider from the Atari 2600 classic Haunted House.

Haunted House
Truth be told, Haunted House is one of my favorite Atari 2600 games. Unless I’m mistaken, it could be the very first survival horror videogame, and believe me, it does get downright unnerving at times. Great sound design, clean graphics, easy-to-learn controls – simply put, this game is worth your while. But back to the cardigan…

What impresses me is that this cardigan actually looks downright nice while being the geekiest piece of mainstream clothing I’ve ever seen – I mean, Haunted House is not exactly on the same level of popularity as The Legend of Zelda. It takes a real videogame fan/sad sack to recognize that design.

So if you’re desperate to find a great gift for that special someone, you could do a lot worse. Click here to buy it from Nordstrom’s site. If any Dear Readers happen upon this piece of clothing in the real world, please take a pic and send it in – bonus points if you’re in the picture and two giant thumbs up if you’re wearing the cardigan.

Merry Christmas!!
