Playing ‘Zelda’s Lullaby’ on an Ocarina

My wife surprised me and got me a new musical instrument to add to my collection - an ocarina. I've wanted one for a while since playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for Nintendo 64. To capitalize on it's popularity there was someone selling ocarinas that had the classic Triforce logo on them. These ocarinas seem simplified with less holes to play and even came with a book to play some Zelda tunes with music easy enough for anyone to read.

The first thing I couldn't wait to play was 'Zelda's Lullaby'. Here's my first ocarina recital.

Beer Battered Bacon – It’s Not as Good as it Sounds

As a Stock Holder in Nintendo, I Just Received a Cash Dividend for Eleven Cents

Let me start by saying I know nothing about stocks and bonds and share holdings and all of that. For my birthday this past April my family bought me stock in Nintendo. It came in this giant, framed, gaudy thing that's better compared to those checks they hand you in the Price is Right.

No matter how it's showcased, it turns out to be legit and I even got paid on it!

Man Tricked Into Thinking He was Bungee Jumping Off an Old Bridge

In Norway, where about 50% of my DNA make-up comes from, they do things a little differently in their bachelor parties. While, here, we may go to Vegas to have some fun, get some drinks and do things that are probably illegal in 49 states. These guys in Norway decided to take their friend bungee jumping off an old bridge, or so the groom-to-be thought.

Someone Made an Atari 2600 Version of Super Mario Bros That Doesn’t Look That Bad

Super Mario Bros is one of the most iconic video games of all time. It's the game that turned Mario into a house-hold name, the music is legendary and video games today still use Super Mario Bros. as their main source of inspiration. It was the game that was included in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in the mid-80s so it just missed the opportunity to be on the Atari 2600.

Leave it to Chris Spry to create his own version of Super Mario Bros on the Atari 2600 and, from the looks of it, it looks pretty decent.
