Stop-Motion NES Video

May 27th, 2010 by Sean

With 120+ hours of spare time up his sleeve, YouTube user bornforthis43 set up a camera, got some items from his garden and fridge, then made this awesome stop-motion tribute to the games of the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The three minutes of footage is comprised of over 7,000 individual photos, and if you’re wondering, the games in order are Kirby’s Adventure, Contra, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man 2, and Super Mario Bros.

May 10, 2013: Apparently the author of the original video I posted back on May 27, 2010 deleted his original YouTube channel and made a new one, so I updated my post to not have a broken video.

A turning point in black history today. We now have a black Nintendo Wii. Yes Wii can :)

In other news, apparently President Barack Obama doesn’t know how to use an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3:

With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation…

In closing, to wrap up my May 9th, 2010 post, I want to say “happy Mother’s day” to moms all around the world.

The Dark Side Of The NES

March 30th, 2010 by Sean

Have you ever wondered what Dark Side of the Moon would sound like if Pink Floyd had written it for the Nintendo NES?

Thanks to the hard work of Canadian Brad Smith, he’s remixed the entire album in 8-bit Nintendo glory:

Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon is an all-time rock classic, but that’s provided you’re listening to it on a record or CD, until now.

For those wondering, it’s available for download from the MOON8 project site.

Rush Coil – 8-bit Christmas

December 5th, 2009 by Sean

Not only am I a fan of video games, I’m also a huge fan of video game music. All anyone has to do is take a look at my Apple iPod to see that.

Now that the holidays are upon us it’s only appropriate to have some video game themed Christmas music to rock around the Christmas tree.

This album 100% inspired by games. It’s Rush Coil’s “8-bit Christmas”:

8-Bit Christmas

There are 12 tracks in all on the album. You can sample them at the official web page and it’s also available to purchase for $4.00 USD.

If you use last.fm, be sure to check out the Rush Coil last.fm page too.
