Mario rides again!

I think I've fallen into some weird parallel timewarp universe! I'm sitting in my living room with 3 teenagers, this time 2 girls and 1 boy, laughing at them playing MARIO! Yep, the original!

The only thing that would make it more perfect would be if Bug was here to whip all their butts. That boy was one brick-bashing wizard!

Somewhere I have a video of Twig at age 3 sitting on the floor, holding down the jump button singing, "Here comes Peter Cot-ton Tail. Hop-pin dowwwwwn thuh bunny traiiiil..." If I can ever find it and figure out how to get it onto here, I'll post it for you. He was soooo cute!

Funny how one old game can evoke so many great memories. Wonderful how that same old game is now making some great new ones.

Peace, Blessings, and Boing! Boing! Boing! Boing!


  1. A few weeks ago we were cleaning out our storage room and the kids found my husband's old Pong game. (That's way older than Mario ;0)
    They figured out how to get it connected to the TV and since then, they have been neglecting the playstation in favor of playing Pong, and their new favorite game (and mine) "Breakaway"
    One of the kids mentioned that they wanted a Wii for Christmas. I think I'll go check my mom's basement to see if she's still got that old Atari hanging around and give that to them instead.

  2. Awesome! Love the 8-bit classics.
