I was one who totally missed out on the whole Super Mario Brother's game phenomenon. Maybe it was because I didn't have friends that were into home gaming and maybe there were more interesting and violent games to play at the arcade but there is my shame. You don't know how many times I wanted to race one of those little cars around some goofy track. Maybe in my old age I will become the game freak I should have been all along.
Brother Nathan did a great post on the Evil Cephalopod's contribution to the Mario World and tagged me in the process, knowing that the topic was something I would be interested in. If only I knew I could be smashing and bashing and outwitting these tentacled bastards, I would have never left the Cave of Cool on those early Cold War Search and Destroy then BBQ missions.
"Yeh, I am gonna kill you - and your little buddies too."
Here is a classic example of their dickish behavior. Just because they have eight arms doesn't mean they get eight rackets to use against me. I have two arms but you only see me with ONE racket - because I play by the rules! Who is playing fair and who is a cheating, lying, backstabbing and gossipping piece of bottom dwelling ocean trash? I think you can easily point out who the offender is in this situation.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
