OK so today I'm going to write about Super Mario Bros. OK so I know I already wrote about Super Mario Bros but this is a different take on it where i talk about the plot and stuff. So the protagonist is probably Mario who tries to save princess peach who is locked up in the evil Bowser's castle who kidnapped the princess. On the way you have to fight disgruntled mushrooms called goombas and (sometimes flying) turtles called koopas. The genre of the story is probably fantasy and adventure with the angry mushrooms and the piranha plant and such. I think the message that they were trying to portray is that turtles are evil and you can eat mushrooms that come out of bricks to grow and that you can shoot fire from your hands from eating glowing flowers oh yes and don't trust princesses to never get kidnapped because she will eventually get stolen by a jealous giant turtle who has a big crush on her.

OK so today I'm going to talk about The Pixies. The Pixies are the greatest Alt Rock band of all time and have been as influential as The Beatles. They formed in 1986 and broke up in 1993 but reformed in 2004. I have Surfer Rosa and Doolittle and I want to get all they're stuff. So I LOVE THE PIXIES AND U SHOULD CHECK EM OUT.

here is a song by them

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

My top 10 favourite albums (in no particular order).

1. Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness by the Smashing Pumpkins.
This is the greatest record of the 1990's and has some of the heaviest songs in rock history "X.Y.U".

2. Butter 08 by Butter 08. It is almost impossible to not head bang to this album with the song "9mm" it one of the most underrated albums ever made and deserves more attention. Fans of john Spencer Blues Explosion will love this album.

3. London Calling by The Clash. This album is one of the greatest punk records ever made from the rockabilly awesomeness of "Train In Vain" and the humor and catchy tune of "Spanish Bombs".


4. Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins. Fantastic album with memorable songs like "Today" and "Rocket".

5.  Real Gone by Tom Waits. A very dark and foreboding album and also Tom's first album with no piano. With the beat boxing of "Top Of The Hill" to the terribly sad "Dead And Lovely" Real Gone is one of Tom Wait's finest.

 6. Surfer Rosa by The Pixies. A very influential album with the Spanish lyrics and the twisted riffs on "Vamos" and the strangely beautiful melodies of "Where Is My Mind?". this is a must have

7. The Undertones by The Undertones. One of the great punk records of all time and a fav' of John Peels  who gave they're single "Teenage Kicks" 28 out of 5 stars.

8. Rain Dogs by Tom Waits. I LOVE THIS ALBUM. It is very influential and different and great recording quality.

9. Play by Moby. Very addictive album with really awesome beats on "Honey" and "Find My Baby".

10. Revolver by The Beatles. In my opinion they're best record with some of my fav' songs by The Beatles like "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "Dr Robert".



So that was my top ten fav' albums I'll probably do another one soon because I can't fit all of them into top ten.


Oh and one more thing. I didn't include "Doolittle" by the Pixies because I don't have that album but if i did it would by my all time fav'.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

OK so today today I'm going to do a little review of the UNKLE album "Psyence Fiction" and yes thats hows its spelled. So just note something I'm not a professional music critic and I chose this album at random from my collection and I haven't really reviewed all the tracks but whatever its fun and I have nothing better to do so heres my review of "Psyence Fiction".  OK so I can seriously the first track has one of the coolest bridges from the intro to the start of the drum beat EVER... ever.  So it builds up with orchestral stuff and you feel like something big is going to happen and all of the sudden it stops and says something like "SOMEWHERE IS SPACE, THIS MIGHT BE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!!"* and then it goes to this super awesome fill that goes like "CHA DU CHA DU CHA DU CHA DU BATABATABATABATABATABATABABATA PSSHH!! DUDUD chA DUDU DUDU chA" and then someone starts doing this epic rap verse about the future and stuff. So Deltron 3030 comes to mind when you hear the acoustic almost fusion like beats in there and of course the sci fi like theme hearkens you back to "the intergalactic rhyme federation" and such from Deltron 3030.  One of the best tracks on the album is the almost nine minuet epic blast of strings beats and overall awesomeness of the track "Lonely Soul" which sampled music from Apocalypse Now (which is an awesome film might I add).  So I give this album a NINE OUT OF TEN!!!!! WOOOOTT!! yay!


Here's "Lonely Soul"






*which is from the "Star Wars Episode IV" trailer according to wikipedia.

PUNX NOT DEAD!!!

OK so today I'm going to talk about Punk. Punk is\was a music\political movement which had really awesome music like the dead Kennedys and black flag and the clash but the whole genre has been ruined for some people
with the arrival of bands like Yellowcard Fall Out Boy and Green Day. They started whining about how punk is dead and not even thinking about actually starting a punk band.  So this is a message to people around the world who think that punk is dead: STOP CRYING ABOUT HOW PUNK IS DEAD! ITS NOT DEAD!! FORM A BAND! USE AN INDEPENDENT LABEL TO PROMOTE YOUR MUSIC! START A PUNK ZINE!! DO WHATEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just quit whining thats all. OK I'll go now.






listen to some dead Kennedys!! (warning that video may have some bad words/violence so DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!!!!) :D                                            


Friday, October 15, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about The Red Pony. The Red Pony is A collection of short stories by John Steinbeck and I'm mostly going to talk about the first one called The Red Pony. The main character is a small boy named Jody who is trusted with a small pony to take care of. Unfortunately (SPOILER ALERT) the pony dies of strangles. An important thing about The Red Pony Is that it has many supporting characters in the story that help the action progress smoothly like Billy Buck a horse doctor who is close friends will Jody's father and tries to save the pony. It is set in a rural countryside in California near the mountains where Jody longs to go to in another short story. I would say the protagonist in the story is Jody but to tell you the truth there are multiple protagonists in the book like Billy Buck who helps treat the horses and Jody's father who gave him the horse in the first place. It is told from the readers perspective but focuses on Jody the most. I would say the main theme is coming of age because each short story has him when hes older than the first so It kind if shows him growing up. The mood or tone I guess would go from gut wrenchingly painful to read horse surgeries to tender heartfelt moments. my overall response to the book is quite positive but I don't recommend it to the faint of heart or a weak stomach for that matter. One of the many Strengths of this book is that its a real page turner that draws you in and you really care about the characters and the plot. I think the overall purpose of the author is to portray the emotions that Jody feels in the book and I think he has done that very accurately. So I recommend it to fans of John Steinbeck and it really brings out emotions well in all the short stories. So I hope you enjoyed my little review and bye.

Monday, October 11, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about lagwagon. Lagwagon is one of the rare cases of punk bands where there catchy songs and more melodic vocals and guitar don't add up to be an emo group. They formed in 1990 and released there first album in 1992 called "duh" it had a small budget and was recorded and mixed in only four days. In 2000 the lead singer Joey Cape formed the band Bad Astronaut that broke up in 2006 because the drummer died in 2005. So Lagwagon is pretty cool and I recommend them to anyone who likes good melodic/skate punk type music.



ONE OF THEY'RE SONGS

Thursday, October 7, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about Enders Game. Enders Game is like my fav book ever and i really recommend it. So my fav character is prolly ender (of course) hes really kool and stuff I hate graff tho hes really mean and stuff. The plot like this kid gets sent to military school to fight aliens and then (spoiler alert) he ends up killing all the aliens while still in training without knowing it and them he becomes governor of a planet and the end. The authors kind of insane so beware hes just uh insane i guess. So read this book now its really really really GOOOOOOOOOODDDD. 

Friday, October 1, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about The Ramones. These guys were a punk band that formed in 1974 and broke up in 1996. They greatly influenced later pop punk bands like green day. So the ramones are classic and there albums are essential to any punk record collection. So they are awesome  and you should really check them out.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Of Mice And Men

OK so today I'm going to write about Of Mice And Men. So this is a classic book by the late great John Steinbeck and is considered one of his best works. So the story revolves around two characters, George Milton and Lennie Small who are migrant field workers during the Great Depression, Lennie is a mentally disabled man with an ironic last name because of his great size and strength. George Milton is a smaller quick witted man who dreams of owning a ranch with Lennie. So they travel to a ranch in Soledad southeast of Salinas, California to work up some money to buy a small ranch. Another aging ranch worker named Candy shares there dream to own a ranch and is willing to pitch in his pay to live with them in there ranch. (Spoiler alert) unfortunately Lennie accidentally kills another ranch workers wife (a bitter man by the name of Curly) he then organizes a mob to catch Lennie and kill him. So George ran ahead of the mob where he knew he would find Lennie shoots him in the back of the head to avoid a more painful death from the angry mob. My favorite character is probably George hes really smart and stuff and hes not a big jerk like Curly. So thats it for my blog post I hope you enjoyed it and bye.

OK today I'm going to talk about Joe Strummer. Joe Strummer is most known for him fronting the punk band The Clash. He was a staple figure in punk and is influential to this date. He was with the clash from 1976 to 1986 when they split up. He was also in a number of flims like Candy Mountain (which also has tom waits) and mystery train (which screaming jay hawkins was in as well). He died in 2002 and was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame along with the clash in 2003.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about super mario bros. So super mario bros is rly awsome and it is one of nintendo's best selling games.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about Godspeed You Black Emperor!. So this band is really worth checking out if you like Explosions In The Sky and A Silver Mt Zion and all that post rock/chamber pop good stuff. So they got together in around 1994, broke up in '03 and reformed in 2010. I highly recommend the album "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To heaven" Its one of my fav' albums ever. So heres a link to one of there songs: poop

OK so today I'm going to write about The Residents. The Residents are a experimental group from Shreveport,Louisiana and they have made like a brillion albums so of course I don't have ALL of them but I have a fare share of there major ones like"The Big Bubble","Demons Dance Alone","The tunes of two cities"(which in awesome by the way). So they started making music in the late sixties but made there first real release in 1972 called "Santa Dog" The single was shaped as a Christmas card and was mailed to random people like Richard Nixon and Frank Zappa but it was also mailed to various west coast radio stations like Radiolab who loved it and sent some copies to listeners and other people. The residents claimed to have gotten there "theory of obscurity" from a fabled Bavarian composer called "N. Senada" who was allegedly believed to be captain beefheart but I don't think thats true. So the residents are awesome and you should see them live if they come to your town cuz' there live shows are the best!

Monday, September 6, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about Ben Folds. Ben Folds is a musician from North Carolina and was the member of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five.

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about the dead kennedys. This was one of the truly great hardcore punk bands out there and they inspired many other punk bands to come.

Friday, August 27, 2010

I really like the red hot chili peppers but i only have there "blood sugar sex magik" album. I really like the song "Dani California" I also like the song "can't stop". So the red hot chili peppers are really cool and you should defiantly check them out.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

OK so today i'm going to write about Queen. Queen was a glam rock band from 1974 to 1991. I like queen and they where able to explore different styles of music in there long carrier tragically cut short by Freddie Mercury's death of AIDS. My fav' album of there's is probably "A day at the races". I also like the album "A night at the opera".

Friday, August 13, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about mario. Mario is the biggest gaming icon around and I'm going to talk about some of his key game. number one Donkey kong was marios first game but back then he was called mister video in production but later changed to jumpman upon realease . Number to was mario bros its kind of rubbish but it was pretty old it was also the first to feature luigi. Super mario bros was the third and it was quite good it was the first side scrolling platformer that mario was in.
I'm gonna do this in multiple parts so this concludes the first part.

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about Captain Beefheart. captain beefheart was born don glen vilet in 1941 and was a very influential character in the avant garde music scene. His first album was called "safe as milk" and was one of his most blues influenced albums. I really like the album "Bluejeans and moonbeams" even though lots of people say its his worst album but I think its pretty cool. Of course his magnum opus that every beefheart must own is his double record "trout mask replica".

Thursday, August 5, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about Serge Gainsbourg. Serge Gainsbourg was a mainly jazz and adult contemporary musician who was born in 1928 and died in 1991. I really really like Serge Gainsbourg and my fav' album of his is probably Historie de melody nelson and was ranked number 21 on pitchforkmedia's top 100 best albums of the 70's. Serge Gainbourg was a pretty strange guy but he made really good music. I think he also did a song with his 12 year old daughter but i can't remember the name of the song.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about the doors. The doors comprised of John Densmore, Robby Kreiger, Jim morrison and Ray Manzarek. The doors started in 1965 and ended with the death of the lead singer in 1971. I really like the doors and they basically changed the course on rock and roll music as we know it I mean I bet kurt Cobain was inspired by the dark nature of the doors and I mean if there wasn't kurt cobain there would prolly never be EMO and there was no EMO there would never be WEEZER and PHANTOM PLANET and.........BUILT TO SPILL!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!


actually I hate bright eyes but aaah well :)

Thursday, July 29, 2010

OK so today I'm going to make a list of some of the best consoles that i think are out there. Note that these three consoles i have never owned before and these are in no order.

  1. NEO GEO this revolutionary console let owners play arcade quality games on there TV.
  2. VECTREX this is a classic console that was not hooked up to a TV, it was a stand alone console that had vector graphics not raster graphics which a was blockier and not as crisp and bright as vector graphics.
  3. SNES this is one super awesome console and nintendo's best as far as i am concerned.

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

OK so today i'm going to write about jonsi. I really really like jonsi and my fav' album of his is his second solo carrier album "Go". I think his first band was called "stoned" and it was a grunge band from 1992 to 1993. he started his carrier with sigur ros in 1994 until 2010 when they broke up to be with there families. So jonsi is super awesome and i highly recommend the Go album and all of the stuff that he did.

Monday, July 26, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about Primus. Primus is probably my fav' band of all time they started as primate but changed to Primus when another band named primate got really mad. there first album was " sailing the seas of cheese" with the singles jerry was a race car driver and tommy the cat. I only have the pork soda album but i lost it which sux. so u should defiantly check them out they koool.

Thursday, July 22, 2010

OK so I've saved up some money over the past year and I've decided to make a list of the things that I'm considering to buy:

1.A Flip Mino HD camcorder price: 229.99
this is a very nice little gadget and I choose it over the old model of the the flip mino because of the brushed metal and the larger screen. Pro: you can bring it everywhere your purse,your pocket its good for just whipping it out and filming whatever is going on.
Con: it has an incredibly tiny sensor so its not good for shooting high contrast areas like say, under a tree on a sunny day with lots of shady spots and light spots. Pro: the HD looks absolutely marvelous for such a tiny camcorder.

2. a nintendo dsi I've been thinking about buying one of these for a long time now the price is 169.99
pro: the two cameras are very cool but not very good quality
con: only fourteen hours of battery life compared to sixteen on the ds lite.

3A DRUM SET!!! price varied OK so i LOVE to play the drums so post a comment on what drum set i should buy and i want an affordable one that sounds decent

3 a bass
I've kind of always wanted to play the bass for some reason i don't know why.

4a new guitar my old giutar is tiny so I've been thinking about buy one for a long time now

5 a new keyboard for my room my old casio is horrible

6 a new cannon powershot would be nice theres this one that i have been looking at that has HD video and image stabilization.

7 a ps3 these are cool but very expensive and
i cant decide whether to get and xbox or a ps3


OK so thats all and bye

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about the annual sorry championships. the annual sorry championships or ASC is a contest to determine the sorry master of the year. It has players of all races not including bings who are big binkys.Desmond is very very exited about it and so is his friend henry E. fush. Even pinky who is'nt very good at sorry might join in.

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about the beastie boys. The beastie boys started as a hardcore punk band in around 1981 and turned to hip hop in like '84 or something. There first album was licensed to ill which was made in '84 i think. So if I'd have to pick my fav song of there's it might be finger lickin' good on the check your head album. so i really need to get more albums by them cuz' i only have the check your head album but anyhoo you should really check them out they are awesome.

Friday, July 16, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about jack white. jack white was born in Detroit in 1975 as john Anthony gillis. he was first a drummer and then he took on guitar at ninteen. He was in a lot of bands in the 1990's and I think the best band he was in was the white stripes. so he is super duper awesome and you should really check him out.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about the shining. I loooooooooooove the shining!! it is sooooooo goood! it has jack Nicholson in it and hes awesomeeeee!!. It also is directed by stanly kubrick who is super awesoooooomeeeeeeeee. so like its rated R and its pretty scary and stuff so you should be careful and stuff.

Monday, July 12, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about pinky. pinky is a very old dumb guy and he was one of the first dumb guys to be called a dumb guy. his past is kind of unknown to most people but he is good friends with mahnatoohoo. he is very very very very he is one of the dumbest dumb guys ever ever ever in the history of everness. he also has a taste in digby folk music which is basically impossible to listen to if you're not a digby he also has a very big heart.

Monday, July 5, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about Manatoohoo. Manatoohoo (if thats how you spell it) is one of the most respected dumb guys out there he was also one of the first. his favourite food is the super fat custard chocolate caramel blubber shake. he usually only says "coooo!" and "manatoohoo!". so manatoohoo is very very coo and dumb guys respect him very much.

Friday, July 2, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about johnny. Johnny(or johnneh) is my dumb guy he is very dumb. His wife is named bim and he has a daughter who is named rainbow who is married to louis. he also has a thriving business selling air and light and most of his customers are digbys who are some of the lowest forms of dumb guys. So johnny may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but he has a big heart... made of fat.

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about watchmen. watchmen is probably my favorite graphic novel ever. I like it because the characters are very complex in there own way and they are very un-formulaic. but watch out because watchmen is probably recommended for 16+ readers because it is very violent and dark there isn't a very happy ending to it. so I really recommend watchmen to anyone who is a fan of comic book super heroes and stuff like that.

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about Colecovision. the Colecovision was a competiter to the superior Atari 2600. It had a very awkward control pad much like the Intelovision. The control pad had number keys and a stiff analogue joystick. it had a overlay to tell you what buttons do what and stuff and that was kind of nice I guess.

Monday, June 28, 2010

OK so today I'm going to talk about my dog Gypsy. Gypsy is a rat terrier but she don't know how to catch anything exept for baby bunnies and lizards. She can roll over, stay,sit,shake hands and circle. She has a passion for bacon and salami and pepperoni and just about every kind of meat. She also likes vegetables like tomatoes and carrots and lettuce she can eat just about anything.

Friday, June 25, 2010

Today I'm going to talk about desmond. Desmond is my brothers fush (fu-Ush) his favourite game is sorry and whenever someone says sorry he leaps up and says "PLAYS IT!!" and we have to say "nois lois desmond" to him. His best friend is Henry the fush and he plays with him all the time. desmond is a very good fush and we love him very much.

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Hello and today I'm going to talk about the NES. The NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was a console by Nintendo its predecessor was the color TV game and its successor was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
The Japanese version was called the Famicom the Russian version was a hardware clone called the Dendy the korian version was called the Hyundai Comboy. it came out in amarica in 1985 and it was packaged with super mario bros and duck hunt which you had to use the Nintendo Zapper on to shoot the ducks. It was a revolutionary console in many ways and the japanese version was sold until 2003.

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

hello and today I'm going to talk about the Atari 2600. The Atari 2600 was a game console that came out in 1977 it was first called the Atari VCS but it changed its name to Atari 2600 in the early 80's. Arguably the best game on it was the classic "Pitfall!" even if its almost 30 years old you really notice how good the graphics were at the time. the worst game on it was "ET" it was terrible! they only had six weeks to program so I mean you wouldn't expect much but no, this is probably the worst game ever! right up there with "superman 64". The Atari had a lot of competitors like the Colecovision and the Intelovision but it hardly matched up with the Atari. So in conclusion the Atari is one of the best video game systems ever.

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Hello and today I'm going to write about PONG. pong was a revolutionary arcade game, it wasn't the first arcade game ever but it was the first that didn't suck. I'm actually going to talk about the home consloles that came out in the seventies and again it wasn't the first home console but it was the first one that relied on the game instead of having to use you're imagination for a dot that you could move anywhere on the screen. Sure they hadn't invented circles yet when they made pong but it made you really think that you where playing a real game. Almost every major company made a pong console even Nintendo made one in 1977 called the "colour TV game 6". But they basically played one game that was pong it was probably the most influential video game ever.

game boy's

Today I'm going to write about the Game Boy. So before I start talking about the Game Boy I just want to say that contrary to what many people think the Game Boy is not Nintendo's first handheld, it was actually the Nintendo game and watch series which was a line of primitive LCD technology portables that were made by the late Gumpei Yokoi who died in a car accident in 1997 the game and watch featured Yokoi's patented "D-pad" which appeared on every Nintendo controller except the Color TV game 6 which came out in 1977 which had two analog control knobs on it. So the Game Boy came out in 1989 with the game "Tetris" which was first programed on an "electronica 60" computer in 1985 by Alexy Pajitnov the game has been called "the start of casual gaming" because now just about everyone plays Tetris it was released on every home console from 1989 and up and you can even play it on you're "Ipad" now!. So the first Game Boy was obviously just the Game Boy which had a black and dark green screen to play games on and took a whopping four "AA" batteries! The next one was the Game Boy "Play It Loud!" it was basically a colorful Game Boy. The next one was the game boy pocket it had a sharper black and white screen and it was smaller and sleeker but unfortunately the sound on the game boys got worse and worse up to the game boy colour which I'm not sure why but back to the pocket, the pocket took two "AAA" batteries which was a bit of a disappointment because "AAA" batteries were kind of inconvenient because you probably don't have a bunch of "AAA" batteries just lying around because usually you were used to having "AA" batteries to use on stuff but ah well. The next game boy was the game boy light and it was only released in Japan because even though it had a nice bright back light it still had a black and white screen and they thought they wouldn't sell because the game boy colour was coming out and it had a color screen but no back light and every game boy after that wouldn't be backlit until the AGS-101 model of the game advance SP which came out in 2005 and the original game boy advance SP doesn't count because it was frontlit not back lit . The next was the game boy advance and it was OK but its a shame that the screen looked like CRAP I mean, did they have to make make it so damn DARK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? so anyway the game boy advance was a whole lot of fail in some ways but a whole lot of win in other ways because it introduced a whole new library of great games like a bunch of new pokemon games and the super mario advance games which is like a 32 bit remake of a 16 bit remake of 8 bit games like super mario brothers 3 and super mario world. The next one was the game boy advance SP which was like a smaller and BETTER version of the game boy advance, they came out with a new game boy advance SP in 2005 and it was backlit and it could play game boy games and game boy color games on it.The next one was the game boy micro and it was the last of the game boys, it was also the smallest of the game boys and had interchangeable skins on it. So that was just about all the game boys not counting the super game boy and that game boy advance n64 thing that I forgot its name so I hope you enjoyed it and bye! :D.

OK so today I'm going to write about "The Postmarks". The Postmarks are very cool but I only have one album of them. I think they are from the 60's but maybe they are from the 70's or 80's I'm not so sure. I like the singer she is a very good singer and I like her very much. So you must check out The Postmarks they are very cool.

I don't know much about this game so this is going to be pretty short post sorry. so all I know about Tetris is that its really really fun and addicting and it has an ending so sorry for this horrible review and bye.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Today I'm going to write about "New Super Mario Bros. Wii". This game is very fun and if you liked the DS version
this ones even better. The game starts of at princess peaches B-day with Mario,Luigi,Toad and two other toads that are yellow and blue then bowser kidnaps the princess on his airship. WARNING this game is very hard! If you haven't ever played a Mario game I would strongly suggest that you try out the DS version of this because even though it has its fare share of frustrating levels, its a lot easier than the Wii version.The game has eight words and a secret ninth world when you complete the game like the DS version it has its cannons that shoot you into another world it also has new great power ups like the extremely useful penguin suit that can make you swim easier and has better traction on ice. Unfortunately it doesn't have the blue turtle shell that was in the DS version that let you kill enemies and break brick walls when you turned into a fast moving koopa shell. Unlike the DS version you can't spend star coins on mushroom houses anymore you go on into them without having to spend anything but they do vanish when you've used them up, You actually spend them on hint movies at the castle so you can learn how to do certain things like how to find a star coin and things like that which I think is pointless be cause everyone has already posted everything on youtube so you can just watch it on you're computer for free.
I thought that the multiplayer was very fun and the fact that you could not do online multiplayer did not bother me one bit. People have been pretty miffed when they found out that you could not use the clasic controller for the game but I didn't mind that ether because if you used that classic controller which does not have a motion sensor it would be very difficult to use the propeller hat in which you need to give the Wii remote a shake to send Mario flying plus the game was designed to be like a modern super mario bros for the NES which is more like the wii remote turned sideways that the classic controller which is designed to be like a super NES controller. So I should probably finish this up It's getting way to long so this is a great game and you should defiantly get it and I give it 5/5 stars.

OK so today I'm going to write about "Mario Kart wii". Mario Kart is a very fun game and if you like Nintendo games and racing games you will have hours of fun with this this great game. Mario Kart has stunningly colorful graphics and they are very pleasing to the eye. The game play is wonderful and challenging and it has some very memorable tracks like the rainbow road and Bowser's castle that you may remember from Super Mario Kart for the SNES system. so overall this is a very great game and is my personal favorite on the wii.


PS: My favorite track is "Bowers Castle".

OK so today I'm going to write about "Butter 08". Butter 08 is very cool and were once featured in an episode of "Buffy the vampire slayer". Butter 08 is comprised of members of Cibo Matto and some other band that I can't remember . Butter 08 only made one album and one of there best songs is called "Butter of '69". so anyways you should really check them out and stuff if you can find there album.

Thursday, June 10, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about belle and Sebastian. Belle and Sebastian is a band from Scotland and there first album is called "Tigermilk". One of the best songs on Tigermilk is the song "we rule the school" "the state I am in" is also a very good song. I can hardly describe the genre of belle and Sebastian's some say it is "British folk rock" others say its "indie pop"
some even call it "wimp rock". There newest album is called "the life pursuit" and it is allot more mainstream like that its earlier albums. so you should defiantly check them out and buy there albums and stuff.

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

OK so today I'm going to write about Tom Waits. Tom Waits is very cool and probably his best album is an album called "Alice". Alice has songs that are based on "Alice in wonderland" and the songs in it were first preformed in Berlin. Another one of his best albums is called "Rain Dogs" and was made earlier that Alice was made. so anyhoo you should defiantly chek out Tom Waits he is very cool.

Jacques Kopstein is his alias but his real name is Marty Anderson and he is a multi instrumentalist who succeeds i disguising a catchy pop tune within a noise avalanche of glockenspiels and synthesizers.

*sheesh that was long!*
OK so I just found out that the VERY FIRST explorers of north America were these Asian people called Hsi and Ho who were royal astronomers sent to make astronomical observations in the land of Fu Sang (the territories to the east of China)the two men sailed along the Bering strait and then south along the North American coastline
and then they settled for a while with the "Yao people", ancestors of the Pueblo Indians living near the Grand Canyon, but eventually journeyed on to Mexico and Guatemala. Upon returning to China they reported their astronomical studies and geographic discoveries to the emperor. A short time later, they were both executed for failing to predict a solar eclipse accurately and this was based on evidence derived from the geography text "Shan Hai Ching T'sang-chu" and the chronicle "Shan Hai Jing" pretty cool right?
