Marcokarty’s International Superstar Soccer Deluxe TAS

Saturday, November 15th, 2014 at 4:00 am | Video

I love watching people break games. This tool-assisted glitchfest of the SNES International Superstar Soccer Deluxe replaces the referees with dogs that apparently can’t keep score and don’t take issue with players messing around behind the goals. If you like this, the mad scientists at TASVideos have plenty more.

I Need More Music

Friday, November 7th, 2014 at 3:33 am | Audio

Hey, you! I need some music recommendations to get me through long days at work. In the comments, please give me an album or a playlist that I’m not already listening to and that I can find either on Spotify or free on the Internet somewhere. I’m an openminded metalhead and I like just about any music if it’s hard enough. As for my own recommendations, here’s a metal playlist I made about a year ago.

Fire Your Representatives!

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 at 8:40 pm | Image

Serious time here for a minute. If you can legally vote in the US, it’s your responsibility to read about your ballot and vote in the mid-term elections on Tuesday, or you have no right to complain about the outcome.

Who is your House Representative? Did they participate in the budget stalemate that shut down the government for 16 days? Did they vote for CISPA, a cybersecurity bill that would have allowed the NSA to bypass existing privacy laws? If so, vote against them and fire them. This includes every Representative from Ohio except Tim Ryan.

UPDATE: Every House incumbent in Ohio got re-elected. It’s like the whole state rose up in unison and said “Government shutdowns? CISPA? Sounds good; do more of that.” Way to fail, Ohio.

The blog will return to its regular goofiness next week.

John Hathway – Magic Rocket Station (another)

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 at 3:21 am | Image

Time for another dual-monitor desktop wallpaper with a lot going on. Pixiv artist John Hathway puts on some Susumu Hirasawa music and draws Mahocho, a vertical city of magic users that use flying brooms, rockets, and jetpacks to get around. The scale is so big you need a fisheye lens to see it all.

Oh, speaking of witches and brooms, this Wednesday on my weekly Instagib stream I’ll be playing the super rare Magical Chase, emulated of course.

This was actually my wallpaper back in August but I saved this post until Halloween time. Is that bad?

Street Fighter II: Mastering Great Combinations and Strategies

Monday, October 20th, 2014 at 6:40 pm | Video

Oh, Capcom. When Street Fighter II Turbo came to consoles in 1993, they put out this campy VHS tape of totally valid strategies from old school Street Fighter legend Tomo Ohira. LordBBH compiled a highlight reel of all the character intro voiceovers. If the cartoonish racial stereotypes were any worse, this would be Punch-Out!! Scroll down for the full VHS tape and Mike Z’s parody from the BlazBlue Calamity Trigger limited edition DVD.
