More Mario Stuff

Here some more Mario hack video. They are pretty cool. Homemade video games are cool. Anything homemade is cool but the harder it is to do the better. Since we can’t do this ourselves we give it extra points. They could take a nose home with them today if they want.

Not only is this beautiful, but it speaks of the possibility of all things. Our bowl is so small and the universe is so large.

Watch it full screen.

Making New Stuff Out Of Their Old Stuff: Upular

This music was composed using chords, bass notes, & vocal samples from one very excellent movie. Nothing like borrowing from a friend to make something new.

Custom Mario Boss: Lava Piranha

We are all about “custom” here in The Bowl. How do you add that little something to make it yours? Sometimes we custom Lego Mini Figs. Sometime we custom our entire room (okay, they used to call it decorating, but…). We take our belongings and make them truly ours by changing them.

Once people learn how to do a little computer engineering, they like to start customizing video games. Some people call that hacking. We like it though when people change games to make them more unique.
This is one example is a piranha plant that lives inside lava and shoots humongous fireballs. It’s awesome. If you like it, checkout later today over at BLTBlast for some more Mario Customs.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
