Setting the remote down for a moment [ + bigger, uncropped ]
Today was a day off.
It totally is (if you like those platformer / mario games).
The music, control, bite-sized levels, gravity, animation. Just spot on good.
Then the sun came out and I had to break away from the game. Bright light on the tv screen and all.
But it was good to pull myself out of that galaxy.
I’m rationing it, avoiding the end.
Not that I ever actually finish videogames, but it’s happy fun along the way.
I’ll be extra happy when Nintendo has some set-up in place to send new levels through the net. That’s the kinda action I want in my inbox.

The complete soundtrack to Super Mario World, covered by one man using dozens of instruments. Roughly in game order, faithful to the originals, with some bizarre artistic license thrown around. A private hobby made public. Dedicated to Koji Kondo.
Current music: XOC “Valley of Bowser”
