How are his arms being supported in mid-air, is what I'd like to know...
If she is indeed genetically mutated such that she has an eye in the back of her head, then I guess that she is genetically mutated and has an eye in the back of her head.

... Nope, can't think of a response. Probably just glued or duct-taped them together. Maybe they're being held up by invisible strings made out of soda cases.

I'd love to see someone Photoshop together some other Mario thing using soda cases. Maybe Yoshi, just use Sprite cases for the body, Coke cases for the tongue and saddle and spikes on the back of his head, Mug Root Beer cases for the boots. Diet Dr. Pepper cases for the eyes. I believe those black cases are Coke Zero.

Oh, there was some explanation... flattened boxes, I think.

Just blankly gaze at the dot field until you go cross-eyed. Seeing the desired image isn't guaranteed, as it's a matter of perception.

Did you just discover Magic Eyes? Otherwise I don't see what's amazing.

Has anyone ever mentioned that you get really cranky at night?

I guess that answers my question.

Weegee likes to toy with the inner-shipper in me.

Stop doing that. I really hate investing in stupid fictional relationships that never go anywhere.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

The complete game of "Critical Path" as a YouTube interactive game. Critical Path was a really old FMV choose-your-adventure sort of game. Kat's some army gal on a mission, you and Kat travel by helicopter to the bad guy's place until it's shot down by a missile. You're injured but make your way into a control panel room, hooked up to all the rooms in the bad guy place. Kat has to travel into the place alone, and your job is to fiddle with buttons to save Kat while you're watching the security cameras tracking her every move.

In short, you have to press the right buttons at the right times to save Kat. The YouTube version reduces the choices to "let Kat live" and "let Kat die", so you won't have any trouble getting through this. Just sit back and enjoy the... horribly dated graphics and bad acting.

But this game was awesome back in the day, man. I could never get past the catwalk part... thankfully the YouTube version skips that scene entirely since Kat could die a thousand ways in that particular scene.

The YouTube version only takes about 20 minutes to play. A behind-the-scenes video (which you get to see after you finish the YouTube version) talks about the game on the news and how it's pioneering a new genre of computer games. The newscaster claims the game will take 8-9 hours to complete. And back then I'd believe it -- the control panel has like 20 buttons and you have to read a journal written by the bad guy in order to get enough clues to know what to press and when. All I cared about was getting to the end of the story, so this YouTube version's a lifesaver.

I would have lost if they hadn't altered the game's physics in the video's making, e.g. with '!' blocks that propel the player forward or perpetually friction-free floors. Points awarded for not using a girly Japanese pop song, though.

Kind of lost, since I saw it before. Do you think automatic Mario levels would go well with DJ Hero songs?

A watched a bit and got the idea. Amazing? Heck yes, but I've seen it plenty of times (less so with the musical mashups, but still).

Also, ain't nothing wrong with some J-Pop.
