Top Ten Tuesday: Original NES Songs

On Sunday, I hooked up my childhood Nintendo (yes, my original one from 1988/1989; it still works perfectly, as do all the games). I popped in Dr. Mario at once and started playing. It really took me back. Last year, I found a nice website dedicated to video game music. Without further ado… Oh, but keep in mind I pretty much had to buy my own video games and I didn’t have a lot of money as a kid; so there isn’t very much variety 😉

Quiz: What Nintendo Video Game Character are You?

Answer: Ike
You Are Like Ike! You Are Very Strong and Love to Hangout with Your friends! You also love to Just Relax and eat Snacks 🙂

Thoughts: Oh dear. I don’t know Ike. I have never played Fire Emblem. But he seems like my kind of guy, judging by the description with creative capitalization.

Mario Marathon 7

MarioMarathon2014-01I look forward to the Maraio Marathon every year. A bunch of friends get together and play tons of Mario games. They take turns playing so that at any time–day or night–there is Mario goodness happening. How long they play (how many games & levels they must get to) has to do with how much money gets donated. So the more money they raise, the longer they play. All money goes to a great charity, Child’s Play Charity, which gives video games to children in hospitals.

I just made my donation (though I tend to donate additionally in little bits throughout the marathon as well).

As I’m still recovering from gallbladder surgery last week, I look forward to taking it easy and watching these guys play all weekend! Do the Mario!

Oohh, they have a donation widget!
