Shake it Wario, Shake it!

Now I really want a Wii - Wario is my favorite Nintendo character. But what I really like is the ad they've got running on Youtube for the game, it's definitely Wario-approved! Go check it out and be sure to watch the whole thing - trust me, you won't be disappointed.

DJ Mudfoot Video Mix #1 - Classic Jungle April 2008

For all the ragga jungle and dubstep heads out there, I'm going to start posting some of the video DJ mixes I've been putting on Youtube in the last year. These were made in my garage studio, and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from listeners in the US and the UK. So excuse the unoriginal content, but it's actually my own stuff - I've just never blogged it before. If you like it, let me know because I can always make more.

Game and Watch Music Video

This music video made me smile - the music is very 8-bit, and the video superimposes LCD graphics like the classic Nintendo "Game and Watch" games on outdoor scenes. Not sure if these are the actual graphics from games or just done in that style, but either way they kick ass. I never owned any of those games, but I remember playing them a lot - I must have mooched off friends.

Atari Video Music Trip-Out Machine

Atari made a bachelor-pad music visualizer in the 70s that you could hook up to your TV in order to induce a seizure in your date and take advantage of her while the sounds of Journey blazed over your 8-track stereo. Check out the video, visit the Atari Museum for a full description and then pull out your wallet, because there's one for sale on Craigslist in Los Angeles.

Scraper Bikes - The Latest Trend from Oakland, CA

From the place that brought you hyphy and ghost-riding, now comes the bike version of "donks", the Scraper Bike. These are small frames with big wheels, decorated with loud colors and junk food wrappers. WTF? Looks pretty cool though, and they even have their own rap video.

Sesame Street Pinball Psych-Out

I think this clip is the reason I ended up playing guitar in a funk band after college - and probably had something to do with a lot of other bad behavior. The music is just too funky, and I don't know what they thought they were doing to kids with the psychedelic graphics. Yo Gabba Gabba's got nothing on this.

Mike Mika's Video Game Collection

If you can get past the annoying fanboy interviewer, this is a great interview with the studio head of Backbone Entertainment where he shows off his insanely huge video game collection, featuring pretty much every home system and a bunch of vintage computers and arcade games.

Bombing the Berkeley Hills

Holy smokes this is absolutely nuts. These two guys bomb through Berkeley's Claremont Canyon on longboards, wearing suits. This is like skydiving except you could suddenly hit the ground at any time - not to mention oncoming traffic. They even pass the camera back and forth a couple of times. I am in awe - but I would never, ever try this. I used to bomb hills in my neighborhood but nothing remotely like this, and I don't even do that anymore.

Jesus Is My Friend

Oh man this is good. Why can't today's Christian Rock be more like this? I especially love how they have a grand piano but the keyboard player is rocking the Casiotone. And how about that headless Steinberger bass? Serious 80s action here. Skank out for the Lord!
