Glitch

“Just blow into the cartridge..”
If you are too young, you probably don’t know what that mean. In short, when games were still delivered in the form of cartridge, you sometimes get glitches when the copper contact fail. Blowing/scrubbing the cartridge sometimes help (some also say its futile).

The glitches produced were often bizarre and abstract. Somehow, has an orientation or repetitive order which yield aesthetic visual. Or is it just an old man mumbling bout his nostalgic memory here?

“We are all glitchy, in a way.”
