Switched On SNES - Moog-Esque Secret of Mana, Zelda Soundtracks
Via Bandcamp: Switched On SNES. Thousands of years ago, there was a trend of "Switched On" albums featuring electronic covers of popular hits from the radio, often with a Moog or other synthesizer equipment. This proud tradition continues with the digital Super Nintendo music being covered by digital means, and there are cassettes and records too.
It's charming, but many are already sold out - unless you want digital. Check the site for a free streaming preview, or buy it.
I missed it: ORB - "The Space Between" came out in multiple flavors of vinyl on ATO records. (You know, they of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.) ORB is a band that's pretty great - their album Birth was amazing, and Castle Face put it out on this awesome toxic pool yellow color. This new one comes on a bone/water/blood tri-color as well as blood moon splatter or plain silver. I haven't heard the new one yet as I only just discovered it exists, but I can recommend Birth and Naturality albums with the highest of praise.
We're taking donations for server costs! Really. One of the rewards is Q&A a few days early - you can read next Monday's installment as soon as it's ready, which can be as early as 26:01 AM my time on Monday!
If you've got a dollar a month to share, please Visit the Galactic Hunter Patreon and help cover our server costs. I'll still put in hours of work, writing, photography, and research for you - I just need some help making sure that the site costs me only time, and hopefully not money. Thanks for your support!
The GCE/Milton Bradley game console has a built-in vector monitor and a controller that tucks neatly under the 9-inch screen. The mini version was not widely known about - heck, I'd never heard of it - and the original console is pretty scarce as it is. Take a look!

GBA Consolizer - Adds HDMI, Super NES Controller Ports to a GBA
Via RetroRGB: GBA Consolizer: An HDMI 720p GBA Kit. This is a new add-on kit that requires some soldering and some work, and it ain't cheap - but it does some cool things. You have to mod a donor GBA, but as a result you get a few graphical features including an HDMI-out for your TV and a Super NES controller port.
As is the style of our time, add-ons for this add-on are already being made with a new console casing for the unit available via 3-D printing. The kit itself is currently presold out of its current run, and it's also somewhat expensive - but appears to be the best way to play games from this system until Nintendo or someone comes up with a mod-free gizmo later. This will never happen.
