Having grown up playing Super Mario Bros on the NES (I still play it all the time on my 3DS XL), I can understand how people could love it enough to make it one of the biggest pieces of their wedding day.  In the past, I have posted a bunch of Super Mario Bros wedding cakes ranging from this spectacular Super Mario Bros wedding cake to this mind blowing Super Mario Bros wedding cake so when I saw this adorable looking Super Mario Bros wedding cake, I knew I had to share it on here.

This beautiful Super Mario Bros themed wedding cake was created by DeviantART user Naera.  Unfortunately, she doesn’t give any of the delicious details about the cake like what it is made of or how long it took and there is no mention of who the happy couple was that got this cake.  Either way, the cake looks amazing and I’m sure the happy couple (who I would like to wish a happy marriage!) loved it!

Nothing says I love you quite like Mario down on one knee asking Princess Peach to marry him on a wedding cake.

Sadly, my princess seems to be in another castle and I’m starting to suspect that castle is in another galaxy, in a different universe.

Perhaps one of the greatest memes on the internet today is the Captain Picard facepalm meme.  Whether you enjoy memes inspired by stupid people or you just like Captain Picard, I think most everybody enjoys it.  Speaking of enjoying it, now you can enjoy it in a totally new way with some delicious Picard facepalm cookies!  Nothing will help you cope with the stupid people you encounter quite like some delicious facepalm cookies!

JustJENN over at JustJennRecipies made this awesome looking Picard facepalm cookie.  She also posted the recipe and the instructions so if you wanted to make your own Picard facepalm cookies just like hers, here is the recipe.  Of course the recipe will only get you part of the way since you still need the Picard facepalm cookie cutter which you can get over at WarpZonePrints for just $5.  And if anybody decides to make more than they can eat, you are more than welcome to send all of the extra cookies to me!  And don’t forget to make sure you are wearing a Picard cooking apron when you make them.

Bake it so!

NES Super Mario Bros

It always gives me a laugh when I see the bewildered expression on peoples face when I tell them I listen mainly to metal music.  Metal music isn’t very popular where I live (this is mostly a country music area although there is a fair bit of love for classic rock too) and I grew up listening to almost nothing but country so it tends to surprise people I tell people I am a metalhead, especially since I don’t look like your stereotypical metalhead with tons of tattoos, piercings and dress in nothing but black.  I especially enjoy their confused expressions when I tell them the various sub-genres of metal that I enjoy like symphonic metal, celtic metal, viking metal, black metal, power metal, ect.  Well, this morning I was the one with the surprised look on my face as I had never heard of the style of metal known as Djent until I saw the video below.

Youtuber SteveTerreberry made this amazing video below of him playing the music from the first couple of levels of Super Mario Bros in the style of Djent.  So what is Djent exactly?  Djent is a heavy metal spinoff of traditional progressive metal (here is a more detailed description from Urbandictionary).  Anyway, whether you are a metalhead like I am or not, as long as you at least like Super Mario Bros, you should check out the video below and let me know what you think in the comments!

Back in the Nintendo 64 days (and even a little bit on my Nintendo 3DS), I spent countless hours working to collect all of the stars in Super Mario 64.  Some of them were a lot harder to get than others but sometimes I like a good challenge.  Well, I can’t say that Bob-omb Battlefield, the first level was that difficult however I suspect recreating the classic level with LEGO wasn’t exactly simple.  This might not be the biggest LEGO build I have ever posted about, but I think it might be one of my favorites.

This Super Mario 64 recreation of the Bob-omb Battlefield with LEGO was built by LEGO builder Matt De Lanoy.  I’m not sure of any of the interesting details of this build like how long it took him or how many LEGO bricks he used but judging by the attention to detail on this amazing build, I would think he spent quite a bit of time one it. This makes me wish I still had all of my LEGOs as a kid so that I could build something like this but I guess I will have to settle for playing some Super Mario 64 this weekend.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to go see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie but between my hatred of Michael Bay, the various reboot ideas and story changes and the less than positive reviews I have been reading on just about every geek site I trust, I decided to go see Guardians of the Galaxy instead (great movie).  While I am certainly up for some new TMNT (besides the new cartoon which I have enjoyed), there is nothing quite like the old TMNT.

Speaking of the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, my favorite NES console modder, Platinumfungi has been up to his old tricks and this time he has made (with the help of Jared Guynes and Custom NES Guy), an amazing custom Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary NES.  Like his many previous designs which I have written about, this one features a cool back-lit image on top and it sports a really cool custom paint job.  This also includes 4 custom NES controllers with the image of one of the turtles on each although you really can’t tell it in the picture below.

This radical TMNT NES is a tribute to the old black and white comic and it took weeks of planning, over 500 messages between the guys and over 150 hours of labor to complete.  Talk about a labor of love!

Cowabunga dudes!

Space Shuttle Launch

Space Shuttle Launch

Like I mentioned in Monday’s post, I am a huge enthusiast of all things space related.  This obsession also used to include NASA’s Space Shuttle program when it was still around and I would always try to watch the launches and landings when possible.  Well, it looks like somebody put a video together of all of the launches so they can be watched all over again!

If you loved the Space Shuttle program like I did and have close to two hours with nothing to do, you can watch all of the launches in the video below!

I miss the Space Shuttle program!
