Well guys...time for another Man's Thoughts post. I know that in my first post I said I would post every couple of weeks or so, but....I am super busy plus I couldn't think of anything to talk about. So sue me. Anyways, I arrived home early from work tonight and was chatting it up with LaLa (actually she was talking my ear off and I was listening intently...must get that from her mom...hehe), and she asked if I would play some "Mario" with her tomorrow. Mario means one of the Mario Party games in LaLa world. Of course I said "Yes" because it gives me some fun time with Lala, plus really, who doesn't love Mario. Win-Win for me. And so the light in my head went off...time to post about a little about Mario....the fat little red plumber with the forgotten green brother who I grew up with. By the way that "light in head" seldom goes off anymore...must be the approaching 30th birthday or something.
Ahhhh...Mario. That little bastard has been with me through my younger years till today. From the first game on Nintendo...the classic side scrolling game....to the Wii stuff of today....I love the guy. I have beaten all the old school games (and figured out most of the tricks and hidden stuff). I remember telling my younger brother that if he jumped in "the pit" that he would get an extra life...kinda mean, I know. When I am feeling nostalgic I yearn to play some Super Mario and Mario 3. You can't beat it with a stick...it rocks like I do when I am playing guitar (hey quit laughing at me Kat...I DO ROCK). I need to score a Wii or a Nintendo because I love the old school Mario that much. The guy never gets old. From getting some "flower power" and throwing fireballs to stomping on some Goombas, it never gets old. I could go a decade without playing(not that I would) and still remember the secrets. I even invented a drinking game while playing Mario Party...that takes dedication!! Although not as much dedication as THIS GUY/GAL....he/she can beat Super Mario 3 in 11 minutes...
Well I have beer to drink and air guitar skills to perfect so my time must come to an end. If you have never played a Mario game before move the rock that you have been living under and go get you some Mario. You won't regret it. And always remember to "Rock On!"
