In the year 1985, on the main drag of the town of Gilbert, Arizona, U.S.A., an arcade was built.  As with all the video-game arcades of it's era, it had its good years, and then eventually faded away, lost to history.  

Today, with the expansive growth of the Phoenix metropolitan area, the "town" of Gilbert is now an upscale, thriving Phoenix suburb.  As chronicled in the comic-book tale (above), a recently-discovered time portal now allows visitors to travel back to the year 1985 to this particular arcade's heyday.  


The time portal to 1985 is erratic and difficult to predict; Captain Cutaneum's laboratory team posts updates to this web page regularly.   Don't come a-knockin' when the time portal is closed: you'll only find the empty shell of a once-vibrant, small-town arcade.

Captain Cutaneum's ARCADE '85

"A SOMETIMES-OPEN-FOR-BUSINESS, TIME-PORTAL-DEPENDENT, RETROCADE EXPERIENCE"

January 31, 2015. On this particular night, a handful of prospective time travelers have arrived early to witness the opening of the time portal which will offer them safe passage to their time-jump to the year 1985... but wait! It seems there's an unexpected task at hand.  Pulling out their cellphones, they're asked to serve as impromtu video-camera operators for a one-song, acoustic-rockin', duet-performance micro-gig.
Tonight, our performers are none other than mild-mannered dermatologist Russ Skinlines, M.D. (the purported alter-ego of Captain Cutaneum) and his mondo-talented son Rockford Lines, Esquire. Tonight's song: "She Left Me At The Arcade."
A special thanks to those in attendance, especially the brave Cutaneumites who forwarded their excellent cellphone vids to us afterwards.  Without them, this momentous rock n roll moment would be lost forever.

Here's how it happened to our hero:
