Classic Nintendo Music

I might be the only person who can listen to these Midi files and feel the slight tug of nostalgia bringing me back to my youth spent sitting on the floor of my living room, still wearing my PJs, in front of my parents' TV set playing for hours and hours trying to get to that last, well, it wasn't a cut scene back then, usually just an image or two with a bunch of text saying how great I am. Usually this was pretty early in the morning so as to guarantee that I wouldn't have to give up the TV to someone else would wanted to actually use it to watch something, instead of "playing those foolish videa games".

It's strange that, with just the first few notes on these files, I can vividly see that title screen from the game the music played in. Makes me wonder what else is stored deep within my head (doesn't make me wonder too much though, wouldn't want to stir up that too much).

So if you're like me and you played and loved most of the titles that are listed on the web site that's linked below, give them a listen and see where it is that they take you.

Introduction, I guess

So I've created this blog even though I already have a LiveJournal account as well as a myspace page. What's the point? The point is that no one seems to use the Blog functionality on MySpace, plus it just feels like I'm constantly bombarded by advertising with every new page refresh. And I'm slowly growing bored with LiveJournal. I'm tired of writing about the mundane occurrences that make up my life; I go to work each morning and I come home each night, weekends I spend time fixing up my house and going on small mini-adventures, etc. etc., blah, blah, blah. The sort of stuff no one is really interested in, causing the comments I get to become stagnant, and my friends list to slowly start shrinking down to just a few people who post on a semi-regular basis.

So here I am, over at Blogger, starting a brand new blog, which will hopefully be a more rewarding experience (not sure what I'm expecting but time will tell) where I'll write about, obviously, things I find cool. Let me just tell you I like a lot of geeky, nerdy, and somewhat downright weird things . There will be tons of entries about comic books, including reviews, the state of Nascar, whichever video game I'm currently playing (as of right now that's mostly World of Warcraft, but I did just get Bully and I'm looking forward to diving into it any day now), movies, books, cross stitch (yeah, that's right, I cross stitch. Want to fight about it?), and whatever else I feel like writing about. I'll also throw in the random fictional entry to keep my creative juices flowing and don't worry, I'll let everyone know when they're about to read something I made up, but really, it'll be so outrageous that I probably won't have to. It's not like after reading my latest Blog update, you'll run outside screaming about how the dead are coming back to life (at least not in the foreseeable future).

So tell all your friends, inform your neighbors, mothers hide your daughters, there is a new blog starting today (yes I realize that a new blog constitutes about as much excitement as watching grass grow, and this is probably something like 1 out of a couple of thousand blogs that are starting this very day).
