Subliminal Mindfuck

As quite possibly the World's Saddest Person (tm) and also the caretaker of the Dreamcast Junkyard, it's part of my job description to keep my eye out for ALL Dreamcast related things. Yesterday, I spotted something else and here I present it for your viewing pleasure.

I was on the bus reading the newspaper (Daily Mirror) when this Argos brochure fell out from betwixt the pages:
It's only advertsing cookers and fridges and stuff so I didnt take much notice of it at first but after exhausting the drivel filled pages of said tabloid, I had a quick flick through the brochure. Page 8 was as exciting as evey other kitchen appliance stuffed page, but something caught my eye...Yes, next to the BEKO and Indesit oven/stove combos (retailing for a rather excellent £279.99 and £399.99 respectively, I might add) was ANOTHER DREAMCAST SWIRL! LOOK!So that's one in the toilets at a pub; one on page 8 of the Argos sale catalogue...they're everywhere!! Could this be part of a secret subliminal advertising campaigne by Sega? Probably not, but we can all dream can't we?
If you spot any suspicious swirls whilst out and about and can be bothered taking a picture with your phone, email it to the Dreamcast Junkyard and Ill put it up. The challenge has been set, my friends...

To round off these mobile phone based escapades, I was on my way home from the Gym earlier today and I happenend to spot this:It's a PS2 box lying destitute in a pile of rubbish next to a disused railway line. How apt :-)

The swirls are everywhere! I've eaten ice-cream swirls before... maybe thats a message from Sega too?

I once found a copy of Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance for Playstation 2 in a neighbor's garbage can. The box got wet from the rain but the disc inside was in very good condition. I ended up selling it because I did not care for the game very much.

Maybe he just seen a flash of the box in the rubbish at the top and american bins are different so maybe you can see stuff inside when going past it :).

Some nice finds you got there too mate , you seem to be stuck in some real life version of the The omen . Get it where you see all those signs of the anti christ only that its actually its about our blue swirled white box wonder ;)

Keep it up and thanks for cheering up my slow tuesday .
