Game Blog / WTMK Rises from the Grave
« on: June 21, 2017, 11:25:50 PM »
SO IT'S FINALLY BACK, TO PERFORM FOR YOU
USE THE URL AND YOU'LL HEAR WHAT'S NEW
PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER IF YOU WANNA APPLAUD
TMK'S RESIDENT TECHIE SQUAD.

In other words, WTMK is fully back and functional.  The music management system received an update a few months back that seemed to lead to endless snarls and crashes, possibly due to a PHP version incompatibility in the backend.  Thankfully, TMK's resident tech genius got everything working this week.  Thanks to MegaByte, WTMK is back!  All three broadcasts (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and Opus) are streaming, the cross-fade issues have been fixed, and new audio has been added!

Tune in now to WTMK -- All Mario Radio, (almost) All the Time: http://themushroomkingdom.net/wtmk.shtml.

Site Discussion / Re: Which staff member will wed first?
« on: June 21, 2017, 11:14:54 PM »
The forum may be dead, but its soul can never rest until this poll is resolved.


Current knowledge:

Deezer, MEGAߥTE, Lizard Dude – Pretty sure they're not married
J.J., David Dayton, Sapphira – No freakin' clue
Chupperson – I think he lives with a longtime girlfriend but isn't married

Additionally:

Suffix, Black Mage, TEM – All found longtime Asian love but none are actually married to my knowledge

You are starting to slightly creep me out...

Game Blog / Waluigi Song on Ukulele
« on: August 26, 2016, 12:09:07 AM »
If you enjoy Waluigi, live vocal music, and ukuleles, you might enjoy Waluigi -- possibly the only song ever written about everyone's favorite weird purple quasi-plumber!

Yes, I've added it to the WTMK stream.  Feel free to buy a copy anyway, and support young musicians (like my sister).

Game Blog / July 2016 - the 35th Anniversary of the Mario series!
« on: July 15, 2016, 06:12:39 AM »
Donkey Kong was released in July of 1981, making this the 35th anniversary of the Mario gaming series!  That's right -- Mario is now old enough to become president of the USA!

How will you be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Mario's first video game, Donkey Kong?

(Feel free to tune into WTMK -- we're running a 35th anniversary playlist!)

A talented fellow has been busy beating a variety of games and challenges using his feet and a large, metal, arcade-style DDR dance pad.  Recently, he completed Super Mario 3D World's Champion's Road using these unusual gaming implements.  Watch and be amazed!

The British magazine Sci-Fi Now recently published an interview with Rocky Morton, co-director of the Super Mario Bros. movie.  Rocky, who shared directing duties with Annabel Jankel, answered questions and provided insights into the difficulties behind the scenes.

  "Danny De Vito turned us down"
  "We were with CAA, the agency, and our agent set over the script for Super Mario Bros. and I read it and I hated it, but I sort of loved the concept for it. I said to Annabel, I said, ‘This script is terrible but I think this could be our Batman!’"
  "I had to stand by with the new script, obviously, and tell them that it was great when I knew it wasn’t."

These, and many more exciting bits of trivia, can be found over at Sci-Fi Now!

When testing out the new Mario Kart 8 DLC, a blue shell threatened to destroy White Shy Guy's attempt at Gold.  Luckily, he managed to win by a... mask?
