Just beat Earthworm Jim today, the game is so cool and weird. I don't remember the soundtrack being this awesome from when I was a kid, but shit's cool.

This is the snes version of the soundtrack, some people say the genesis version is better, whatever, you get the vibe.

I beat Super Mario Bros. 2 a few days ago, a game that I never even came close to beating as a kid, but I guess at the age of 22, I possess the patience required to beat it. I feel unstoppable.

The ladybug thing that goes up and down on the vines, is called a Hoopstar.

Yeah, there is no difference between a crawling ladybug and D.J. Augustin of the Chicago Bulls.

Even back in the day I knew that the Japanese office of Nintendo thought that Mario: The Lost Levels would be too difficult for Americans, so they made a completely different game for Americans, the Super Mario Bros. 2 that we all know.

But that is a lie. I didn't know about Doki Doki Panic until about a year ago. Doki Doki Panic is a completely different NOT-mario game. In order to save time, Nintendo reskinned Doki Doki Panic with Mario characters and then released that in America, Mario: The Lost Levels is the true Super Mario Bros. sequel. I was completely unaware. I'm sorry if I'm the one who had to break the news to you.

Here's a clip of Doki Doki Panic.

Beat Mega Man X a few days ago. I don't know if I ever beat it as a kid, and it's nice to know with certainty that I have beaten a game that I truly enjoy.

Btw Mega Man is known as Rock Man in Japan. Plus it's always nice to take a dig at Zubat whenever possible.

I was watching Squidbillies the other day and it featured Gaga Pee Pap, Early's father.

The guy on the right.

I thought I recognized his voice as that of Jesco White aka the Dancing Outlaw from West Virginia, however I had just watched the Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia documentary, so I thought my brain was fucking with me.

But nawp, it IS Jesco White. Jesco White the Dancing Outlaw from the crazy-ass White family of West Virginia, who is known for being crazy and mountain dancing does the voice for Gaga Pee Pap.

This guy.

Jesco White's mountain dancing ability is so well known, there are plenty of country songs about him. However, country music isn't that cool to me, but something that is cool is that this guy is featured in GTAV, that's right Grand Theft Auto Five, in the mountain region dancing. Shit.
