I've got an idea, how about if someone here who can make the trip dresses as Mario and crashes the parade? Think of the YouTube likes!

That's what we're talking about, right? Surely another thread hasn't been hijacked by ColonelKR's ravenous attention receptors and his horrible writing, right??

Again, no more talking about my not writing the story you wanted to read.  I tried to do something nice for you all when I set up my thread, to give you a chance at escapism, but when ALL I EVER GET IN RETURN is stuff like, "You're not doing us justice," it's really just humiliating and enraging.

And I'm through trying to serve Mario fans who never respect what I do for them, which is very selfish and extremely heartbreaking.

Okay, TheColonelKR, I've got a complaint for you. Not because you think you're all that when really you're not. Not even because you're not at all a good writer. My problem, simply, is that you keep on quoting the post that directly precedes your own. Please stop. It's getting on my nerves.

I will stop that, but in turn, I need you to stop calling me a bad writer.  I don't like it when you do that.  It hurts me because I want to write stuff for a living.  Even if this is the Internet, remember that words can hurt.

Also, let's face it: you think I'm bad at writing because I didn't give you the kind of movie you wanted.  You got an origin story rather than an "absurdist comedy" (I shudder at the thought).  Determining whether or not I qualify as a writer SOLELY BASED ON WHAT KIND OF STORY I GIVE YOU is no way to judge a written work.  Learn to appreciate that I'm trying to do something nice for you all instead of publically humiliating me at every turn!  Grow up!  All of you!  GROW THE **** UP!

Need I remind you of all my writing-related achievements again?

......Is this some sort of convoluted attempt at witticism???

It's a pop culture junkie at work, that's what it is.

Weegee's avatar is also a baby. Are you saying Miyamoto looks like a baby?

Uh, sorry.  I had no idea that that was an avatar depicting a baby looking like Roger Ebert crossed with that guy who played Professor Crawley on that Big Bang Theory episode with the cricket.

I know this is the second time I've posted about my weight here, but the last time was back in August and I just felt good feels, man.

Saw a pic of myself on facebook from Christmas 2011, and I decided to make a kind of before/after image.
On the left is the Christmas photo (213 lbs.) and the right [168 lbs. (yay!)] is a photo i just took.

Congrats, man!

I'm with The Chef on this one.

He kinda looks like a Japanese version of your avatar in that light.

I didn't see any context, let alone context clues.

Of course you didn't.

Also a Miyamoto balloon would be the scariest thing in the universe.

Aw, come on!  Don't be a party pooper!  Unless, by "scary," you mean hilariously awesome.

Allow me to try my hand at this one...

If a chicken had lips, could it whistle?

Why are you celebrating? It hasn't actually happened yet.

I'm celebrating because it's fun to imagine what would it be like if there were a Miyamoto balloon, not a Mario balloon, like the one Ultima described.  That's why I quoted him when I sung the Hallelujah Chorus.  I wanted to thank him.  Follow the context clues, dude.

And all chefs are nice.

Man, I'd like to visit that timeline some time.

I would be fine with Pikachu being replaced only if it is by a giant replica of Shigeru Miyamoto's head that fires lasers at onlookers and spurts out new Mario titles from its mouth.

You're all welcome.

Sorry I'm a little late to reply to this, but...

Mario becomes a simulation series
Mario becomes tired of his normal life, and lives a normal life.

Colonel, there's no need to get so upset and defensive. I detect no hostility from The Chef. I ask the same of you. I would hope that you had learned that by now. He's not out to get you, and I suggest you not be out to get him.

I'm not trying to get him or anything.  It's that, no matter where I go, he's determined to advertise my mistakes as he just did in his last post.  My history with him shows that he has some abnormal fixation with me.

And then again, my being fixated with trying to stop his fixation seems ironic.

Wikipedia article

Also, Hello:) was being sarcastic.

I knew he was being sarcastic.  You really need to stop talking down to me like that.  It seems not even being banned can make you a nicer person.

Let me make it clear: I do NOT have a "crippling inability to detect sarcasm (those were your exact words)."  I have no way of telling whether people on the Internet are being sarcastic because I CAN'T HEAR THEIR VOICES!!!

Also, sending me links to things instead of talking directly to me about them goes to show how lazy you are.  Come on!  I'm just trying to start a nice conversation!

I don't know if a movie directly based on Paper Mario would work, but a plot structure where Mario has to collect X amount of trinkets/visit X amount of specific locations before fighting Bowser at the end is typical enough of a Mario plot for them to base a movie on it. Since a kids film is typically an hour and a half long, I'd scale it down to three McGuffins, one for each act. There can also a be a B plot similar to the first two Paper Marios where Peach tries to escape/finds a way to send information to Mario from afar.

That's part of what my work does with the map story and the Dry Bones B-plot, but Miyamoto warns us that if you get too close in terms of plot structure to the source video game, your movie becomes "a movie about a video game," or, to put it another way, it becomes a 90-120-minute game advertisement without any substance to chew on.  Using game theory works for films not based on pre-existing games like Run Lola Run and Crank, but when people see a movie based on a pre-existing game, they might get bored watching something they could just as easily play at home.
