Metroid in 10 Minutes and Very Far Away

Testing WordPress’s “blong this!” widget. Perhaps it’ll cause me to post stuff more often. Who can say?

This particular thing is a 10-minute tool-assisted speedrun of the original Metroid, with the video zoomed way out so you can see the whole map.

(Sorry if this showed up in your RSS like three times. Had some teething troubles getting this thing to work properly.)

Liquid Television


Holy shit, you guys. Holy fucking shit.

Mtv has set up a site and posted all (maybe not all? But an assload of) the clips and shorts from the old Liquid Television series. Including Aeon Flux* — not just the original shorts, but the full episodes after she got her own series.

And The Maxx! Fuckin’ A!

I don’t know how to express how awesome this is. Liquid Television was my show. Any of you have a show that you watched completely fucking religiously, taped every episode even if it was a rerun and you already had it on tape? For me, that was this show.

Not everything in it was good. Dog Boy, for instance, I remember being pretty stupid. But the good stuff was awesome.

I’ma go through the shorts here and see if anything else jumps out for individual links…

Jesus the nostalgia is overwhelming.


*BTW, if you dig the music from Aeon Flux, the guy who did that, Drew Neumann, apparently still owns the rights to to the tunes, just not the ability to market them under the Aeon Flux name — which is why you might not be aware of the twovolume soundtrack.

Twin Peaks 2600

Two posts in the same day! An embarassment of riches! Well, being that I’m not just a video game nerd but also a huge Twin Peaks fan, I can’t not post this.

It’s an Atari 2600-style game, based on Special Agent Dale Cooper’s adventures in the Black Lodge. There’s a full article on it here, including download links for Mac and PC.

Now if that gum I like would just come back into style.
