Better Than 8 bit: Kid Has Super Mario Shaved Into Hair

This is a picture of some kid who has it all figured out. But while it is pretty cool of this little guy to shave Super Mario into the back of his head, the real praise should be to whoever did the shaving. I mean that is skill. Wouldn’t it be funny if the person who cut his hair turned out to be that guy who couldn’t beat the Vanilla Dome level in Super Mario World last year?

Kickin’ It Old School: Nintendo x Vans Retro Video Game Shoe Collection

Remember when Nintendo could only be found in video game form? Well not any more my friends! Later this summer Vans will be releasing their Nintendo x Vans Summer Shoe Collection (no price point on them yet). I’m a big fan of old school Nintendo and not tying shoes, so few of these are right up my alley. It will be like I’ 12 again! “You couldn’t tie your shoes at age 12? You could?! What are you? Some kind of child prodigy? Check out below for more shots of these sweet kicks.      

Room Brought to Life with amazing Super Mario Murals

This a a room that was completely transformed with some amazing Super Mario murals. Apparently it was done by some fine gentleman named Matt. Here is what the person on Imgur had to say about his pal: This is my friend, Matt. I met him at work, at a low-paying job. He works his butt off, and he painted this room as a favor/a “thank you” for a friend. It’s been a year or two, but seeing as I’ve just met him, I think this deserves love now. We all do every once in a while. He’s a genuine person in a world of nots, and he did a phenomenal job with this art. (First time the bastard actually painted, too.) He also does tattoo art, short films, and a ton of other creative stuff. Matt sounds like a pretty swell guy. We all need a Matt like that in our lives. I know a Matt, he co-created this blog with my 4 years ago and now only writes about 3 posts a year. He …

I did not know that: Classic Video Game Secrets

Throughout history video games have always had hidden levels or cheat codes. Some would help you out as a gamer, others added fun elements and some made no sense whatsoever…which made them awesome! Here are a few of the best secrets from classic video games. See how many you remember/even knew about. NBA JAM: Secret Roster This is a secret many people were aware of but few knew the codes to unlock them. This was back before the internet, so friends who knew these codes would hold on to them like they were the goddamn missile codes during the cold war. I assume this was so they would always get invited over to play. With these codes you could unlock secret players such as: Bill and Hilary Clinton, Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff, The Beastie Boys and of course the President of Parliament Funkadelic himself George Clinton (no relation to Bill).   GoldenEye 64: DK Mode DK Mode (named for Donkey Kong as it gave players big heads and long arms) made it that much …

World Record: Super Mario Bros in under 5 minutes

Speed-Runner Blubbler might not sound like a speedy name, but this gamer has the record for completing Super Mario Bros on the NES in the fastest time. It takes him 4 minutes and 57.69 seconds to complete from the moment the timer appears until hitting the axe behind Bowser in World 8-4. I imagine it has taken many Saturday nights alone and missed high school dances in order to reach this milestone…
