My Valentine’s Day began last night – I cooked my wonderful girlfriend an equally as wonderful dinner. I told her she better watch out; I might replace her as the resident executive chef. I really love Valentine’s Day as it is a perfect excuse to spoil the hell out of the love of my life.
Here’s a hodgepodge of Valentine’s Day goodies for you to enjoy.
For starters, Yeasayer just debuted their video for “I Remember,” directed by Sophia Peer, and, in spirit of today, have decided to release their I Remember EP for free (as a way for you to give it as a gift) from their website. What a rad band, right? Head over to their special Valentine’s Day website to watch the video and download the EP for someone special (or yourself).
Google has a nice Valentine’s Day logo going.
How about some lovey dovey GIFs…
OH YA! Love and video games go really well together too.
Let’s end this super post with some music. Last year, Breakbot put out a Valentine’s Mix that, although it was put out last year, may still be fresh to your ears. It was to mine. Download it here and check out the tracklist here.
Well…that’s all the Valentine’s radness that I can muster up. I hope y’all enjoyed it.
Be Rad. Enjoy.
Today, September 13, 2010, marks the 25th Anniversary of the release of the original Super Mario Bros. game in Japan. The famous plumber has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember; from the original 2D side scrolling adventure, to the vast array of Super Mario Galaxy, I’ve always been down to help Mario save that lovely Princess Peach. Although today is a celebration focused primarily on Mario, let us not forget the plethora of unforgettable characters that have been born from the series – Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, koopas, goombas, bomb-ombs, Luigi, etc. The list could go own, but I think you get the point. Twenty five years of Super Mario Bros. means much more than just a birthday for our favorite mustache, it is a celebration of the best video game series ever.
Twenty five years ago today, a star was born that forever changed the lives of many. I would personally like to thank Shigeru Miyamoto, Koji Kondo, and all the wonderful people at Nintendo for creating the most beloved game character ever and for continuing to be the best video game company around. Thanks Nintendo!
I’ll leave you with the two of the best Super Mario Bros. Theme remixes out there. First we have Aphex Twin. While keeping it very true to original, they’ve added an extra sense of eeriness that makes it seem like you traveled way beyond the depths of level 1-2. On the other hand, we have the pumped up, hyper remix by RAC. The famous theme is overhauled and given an extra thump and a whole lot more energy. Both remixes are perfect.
Happy Birthday Super Mario Bros.
Be Rad. Enjoy.
