Gaming History : Mario

New Monthly Series from Beat Down Boogie!

Hello again El Moochadores! So, Christmas 1986 and we (the brothers Moo) are ten-years-old. The one thing every ten-year-old wanted for X-mas 1986 was the Nintendo Entertainment System which is exactly what we asked for. Y’know what we got? The Sega Master system. Yet one more thing that made us just a little bit different than all (ALL) the other kids in out neighborhood – who were happily playing NES while we were trying to figure out that POS Ghostbusters game. fuck.

Sorry, that’s still kind of a sore spot – but go ahead an enjoy this great Gaming History video from Beat Down Boogie! This first in depth episode kicks off with the history of Mario and covers the multiple changes and platforms the little plumber has gone through through out his successful career.

Y’know, it really did suck not getting any of the “Captain N” references on Saturday Mornings. Also, Fuck you Greg (I can’t remember your last name because it was 30 years ago) for not letting us play Metroid when we slept over. Who the fuck wanted to play “Skate or Die” when you had fucking Metroid! fucking childhood.


Mario and Yoshi by Javas


Okay El Moochadores, we just finished recording the last elements for Moocast #113, so I should be able to have it online in the next few days. In the mean time, let’s keep this blog alive with some cool fan art!

Check out Mario and Yoshi from Spanish illustrator Javier Burgos Arroyo (aka: Javas on the Deviant Art). He’s got a great cartooning style and portfolio full of cool and interesting takes on popular comic characters. I’ve posted a few sample images below, along with a speed drawing video by Javas, but hit the DA link above to see way more!

The creative minds over at Beat Down Boogie have completed their full length fan film: Mario Warfare! Check out all the intense action of a plumber fighting an army to save a princess. The film stars Matthew Sumner as Mario, Jarod Kearney as Luigi, Alena Koch as Princess Peach, Brian Lee as Toad, Eric Jacobus as Waluigi, Anthony Robinson as Bullet Bill, David Berberian as The King, and Rick Burnett as Bowser. You can also check out an image gallery from the film along with a trailer.


The Morning Moo!


Featuring Cool Mario Fan Art and Marvel Skate Decks!

Good morning El Moochadores! Good stuff on the web this morning so let’s start things off with something I found over at Geek-art.net. Check out this series of Marvel ComicsJim-Phillips-Screaming-Hand-273x400 inspired Screaming Hand skate decks from Santa Cruz. Four decks were created by artist Jim Phillips featuring Thor, Wolverine, Venom, and Spiderman. I really like the classic comic vibe of these decks. Click the link above to see more of Phillips’s amazing art work and check out sample images of the skateboards below! Y’know; if I only I had a sense of balance, depth perception, and less of a fear of falling… I might have tried skating. Might have.

Nintendo Fan Crochets Super Mario Bros 3 Map!


Via Laughing Squid: It took a Denmark based computer programmer, Kjetil Nordin, six years to crochet this blanket of the grasslands map from Super Mario Bros 3. According to Nordin;

The hardest thing has been to accept that it took such a long time. I’ve spent 800 hours crocheting and many hours researching and searching for the correct yarn

Wow. Wait, is that better than playing 800 hours of Mario Bros 3? Really, either would have been impressive. Anyways, I’ve posted a few sample photos below, but hit the link to see more.

Hot Girl Shot in Butt with Gummy Bears!


Via Geekology: Because… why not. Check out a very cute woman (with a very nice bottom) being shot in the butt with a bunch of gummy bears and recorded at 5000 frames per second. Now let’s see what else we can load in a cannon and fire at her ass!


The Morning Moo!


Featuring New Geek art and an Avengers Gag Reel (parody)!

Good Morning El Moochadores! Well, what’s left of it. This morning we have a new parody from PITtv, but first(!); Look up and check out this very cool bit of Mario/Ring mash-up art (entitled The Pipe)7days-blackt-shirt_grande from Nacho Diaz Arjona (aka: Naolito) that proves that all little girls can be really scary. What’s also great is that you can get this image on a t-shirt, hoodie, or even a phone cover through his website, Naolito.com. Click the links above to see more of his work and the cool gear you can wear it on!


Avengers: Age of Ultron – Gag Reel!


PITtv has a new video on the youtube showing what an Avengers: Age of Utlron Gag Reel may have looked like. The video features Tim Myer as Captain America and Grace Giffune as Black Widow. Funny video but one would think that the old “super soldier serum” would have fixed Cap’s vision problems… Maybe it doesn’t cure astigmatism…



Mario Warfare

The creatives over at Beat Down Boogie have finished producing a parody series that crosses the worlds of Nintendo’s Mario Bros., and other franchises, with every action/ adventure movie you’ve ever seen! Being a Beat Down Boogie venture, the camera work and action are excellent, yet violent and graphic. Many mushrooms died in the making of this series. Keen. Anyways, there are Eight episodes in all. I’ve posted the the first three below, but click the link to see the whole thing! Also, you can see a picture gallery from the series on Facebook.


Powered Up! Awesome Video Game Fan Film

Powered Up!

Hey El Moochadors, Trog just shot me a link to a pretty neat video game mash-up fan film. Not sure where he spotted it on (could’ve been anywhere… spends most of his time browsing the internet for stuff like this… actually, he could probably get more accomplished if he spent less time on the web). Anyhow, it’s by the YouTube group CorridorDigital. Although I’m not much into video games, I just watched a couple of their videos and thought they were pretty entertaining (The Gravity Gun video was nifty). Enjoy the video below. I’m going to go get a taco.

The Morning Moo!

It’s been a few days since my last Morning Moo, but I’m in a special sort of chipper mood right now and a Morning Moo sounds pretty damn good to me, and I’ll imagine, you too. So here we go folks! Let’s kick off this morning with…

Brandon Bird’s Astonishing World of Art Signing at Gallery Nucleus


If you’re lucky enough to be near L.A. (wow, I can’t believe I just wrote that…) sometime between 7 and 9 pm on Saturday September 7th, then swing in to Gallery Nucleus to see, get, and gwak, at artist Brandon Bird’s new art book! Brandon Bird is the brilliant artist who did a painting of Christopher Walken building an Optimus Prime robot. Excellent! brandon-bird-walken Anyways, Mr. Bird has a new art book out. Here are the important details:

If you enjoy pop culture, then you’ll definitely appreciate artist Brandon Bird’s Astonishing World of Art activity book. An inspired, creative, eye-popping turn through the best of American entertainment, the pages are bursting with art from Bird’s most well-known works. In addition to coloring, stickering, and connect-the-dots, highlights include personalizing Law & Order Valentine’s Day cards, re-imaging Nicolas Cage’s hairstyle, and making your own Christopher Walken mask! Click here to learn more.

Gallery Nucleus can be found just outside L.A. (still too close, RELOCATE TO SAN DIEGO! We’re prettier here.) at 210 E Main St Alhambra, CA 91801. Have fun!

Mario: The Bruiser


And speaking of excellent, pop-culture based, art (’cause we were) Deviant Art contributor Tom Lishman is a UK based digital artist who made one scary looking plumber. It’s a very cool rendering but he kind of looks like he’s killed one too many turtles. Excellent work Mr. Lishman!

Grand Theft Auto V Trailer

Our good buddy Dave (the D20) keeps going on about this game and, I’ll admit, it looks pretty darn niffty. Wait, not the right words? Whatever. Check out the trailer for Rockstar Games latest addition to the series coming out on September 17th! Groovy.

Okay El Moochadores! You got a whole day to make your life just a little bit more awesome so get to it and we’ll be back on here a little later with more Atomic Moo greatness as the day goes on!

Ohio State University Marching Band Performs Video Game Tribute

Good evening El Moochadores! I need to finish an interview I’ve been working on for the last few nights, so here’s just a real quick post via a guy I know (Thanks Nucks!) on Facebook. Okay, many a time now both Chudd and I have said we could really careless about sports. However, after watching the amazing Ohio State University Marching Band preform a tribute to some popular video games, I kind of want to watch some football now. It’s always this cool, right? Gratz to Ohio State and their wonderful performance!

OSU Marching Band presented the perfect opportunity during their halftime performance with a tribute to video games. The incredible band pays homage to Mario, Tetris, Pokémon, Halo, Space Invaders, Pac-Man and most impressively, Zelda. The 6:00 mark shows the Zelda Triforce morphing into Epona, Link’s trusty horse, who proceeds to run across the field. With an incredible halftime show like this, it’s no wonder Ohio State proceeded to crush Nebraska. Don’t miss the running horse at 6:00.

Late Night Moo and Real Life Portal Guns!

Good damn evening El Moochadores and I hope you’re all having a wonderful night. I found a few things floating near the surface of the Internet that I found to be very cool and I hope you enjoy them as well…

Super Mario Bros. E3 2012 Gameplay

I’m not a hundred percent sure what this is for or why it was made but Deliox of the youtube produced this great looking video that I wish really was a video game.

POrtal: Terminal Velocity

I’ve yet to play the popular video game Portal but film maker Jason Craft used his expert video talents to show us what it would be like to actually have a real life Portal gun… and how much our friends would suffer for it. According to his Vimeo page, Jason, is a visual effects and motion graphics artist who spends his free time creating small effects projects like the one below. Here’s what Jason had to say about Terminal Velocity:

My interpretation of what a real POrtal gun would be like if one existed. Based on the video game, POrtal. I tried to match the game as close as possible. This was the most challenging project I have ever undertaken, consisting of 3D tracking, seamless camera cuts and 3D camera projection. This started out as an experiment since I didn’t think I could even pull it off, if I knew it would’ve turned out as good as it did I would’ve put more of a story behind it.

Check out his video and, like me, dream of all very mean things you could do to other people if only this thing were real.
