Poke-Ball

I remember 23 years ago when Pokemon Red and Blue came out.  I remember playing it on this long Thanksgiving weekend.  My brother and I didn’t know what we were doing, but we were having a blast.  We only had one Gameboy at the time (the giant OG one) so we had to take turns playing while the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was on in the background.  I remember being hooked on it though.  Absolutely hooked.  We played for hours, days even.  Somehow, some way latter on in the year without the internet we heard about the rare-candy trick and we immediately went to power up our guys.  To this day, Red is the only game where I caught all 150 of them.  I’ve played most of the mainline games over the years too – Gold, Emerald, Black, Heart Gold, and X.  I skipped Diamond/Pearl and Sun/Moon, I’m not sure why, probably because other things were happening and I didn’t have time for the grind.  I never got as hard core into it as others, grinding for the absolute best IV/EV pokemon who knew moves he couldn’t.  That’s just too much work, I wanted to catch them all, and I’m happy to let someone else be the very best.

New Zealand!

It has been a long time since I have posted here.  Not quite as long as previous disappearances, though long enough.  You should be excited to know that married life is wonderful and ya’ll should take part in it.  Also, New Zealand is an amazing country, and despite loosing our luggage, our honeymoon was fantastic!

Below I’m going to give you some first hand photos of this trip, but you can find all of them and more at the New Zealand trip page.  Though if all you’re interested in is photos, then you probably will be fine checking out the New Zealand Collection.

Check out the awesome photos below though:

The Video ends when Mario Dies

Sadly over the last dozen years I’ve moved away from Nintendo games and products and gravitated towards Halo.  I still have a special place in my heart for the big N, but I just don’t have the time for their things anymore.  I’ve played Mario Maker, and watched my friends people play some of the other big games – Zelda, Mario Kart – but since The Wii, I haven’t had a new Nintendo System.  I think that’s sad, but I also know my limits, I don’t have the time anymore.

What is not sad however is watching people play these insane Mario Maker levels.  I can’t really remember any of the great ones I’ve watched over the years, most have been while doing other things and I haven’t paid attention.  I’m sure I could look through my YouTube history and find them, but who knows what else I would find.  Thanks to reddit though, you have the above short and sweet video.  You’re welcome.

Off to New Zealand

Now I’m off to New Zealand on my honeymoon.  Again, I don’t know who reads this, but I thought you should know.  It’s kinda funny though, all the things that I have to do this month, and it just might end up being the most popular month post wise!

Wooden Tower Domino Fun

Watching things like this is satisfying, that’s all I have to say:

It took 16 hours to construct this behemoth which stands at nearly 20 feet tall using 22,000 planks of wood (ok, not dominoes, but still ace).  I don’t know which is more impressive, putting the whole thing together without a misstep which caused destruction, or the engineering necessary to get everything to fall in order without knocking other things out.  The final seconds of the collapse, when the entire tower implodes, that’s impressive because I was on the edge of my seat waiting and hoping that one of those sticks wouldn’t fall incorrectly and knock something else off balance.

RCT, Kinda IRL

Yes this reminds me of RollerCoaster Tycoon.  Yes, this is awesome.  No, this. is. not. CGI.  This is a drone following a real live roller coaster in Sweden.  It’s incredible, and honestly makes me excited for the things that drone pilots will do in the future.  Following a speeding roller coaster is really way more awesome than watching Drone Racing.  I mean yea, Drone Racing is pretty ace, but it’s kind of boring if you’re not flying them yourself.  This though, this is pretty ace.
