|The internet is life, but randomised.

"We had two bags of 1-up mushrooms, seventy-five pellets of fire flower, five sheets of high-powered stars, a salt shaker half-full of raccoon tail, a whole galaxy of multi-coloured turtle shells, hammers, POW blocks, laughers... Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious power-up collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
The only thing that really worried me was the Lakitu cloud. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an misting binge, and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.
And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge winged turtles, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car ..."
I'm constantly amused by the randomised collection of six-degree-separated things that surface on the internet; in this case, a page where an actor who once worked on a TV show that I watched is showing pictures based on a video game I used to play, created by some kid with an computer and image editing software.
- wilwheaton found this on Joystiq here (yes, that Will Wheaton).
- According to Joystiq, they found it on this PixelGen page.
- The PixelGen page indicates that the image was found on ircImages, and consequently the original source is unknown.
- Does anyone know where that image is from originally?
... Post-Scriptum, 2008-05-24 19:23: thornleaf has located the image's original source, on suzyage4's DeviantArt pages. The image displayed has been replaced with the original version from her pages.
How did you find that that fast? I find random photos on the internet and never know how to find their original source.
I Googled 'mario luigi fear loathing', clicked on the second link, and that led me to the DeviantArt page. Of course, if I'd just looked down the list a tiny bit further, I would have seen the DeviantArt page, and clicked on that first.
(And by 'So awesome', I actually meant the art, though of course I think I'm fairly awesome as well).
Hehe. I never know what to enter in the search string. Nicely done.
And, yes, we knew what you meant :P
Entry now updated to include the new data.
