Super Mario World Randomizer

As if corrupted SMW levels and randomly-generated semi-coherent text weren't amusing enough on their own, now they're combined into one thing: the Super Mario World Randomizer!

The level names kind of remind me of a vague idea I had for a LJ meme several years ago, after I found out about the LJ Dungeon Adventure and LJ Space Adventure memes; I thought it might be cool if someone made some sort of "LJ Mario Adventure" where you put in a LJ username and it would generate a series of Mario levels at random that had something to do with that user's interest list.

(Though I never did anything with this idea because "something" was the key word here; the dungeon and space adventures can say "Bones are scattered in the shape of <arbitrary LJ interest>" or "You hear the sound of <arbitrary LJ interest> echoing through the ventilation shafts" and leave that up to the imagination, but making a randomized Mario game like that would require making a way for it to come up with what an <arbitrary LJ interest> Shell or <arbitrary LJ interest> Mushroom or whatever would look like and do based just on the name. Or, come to think of it, I guess it could work with only the level names having LJ interests in them. Enya Challenge anyone? [And yes, that entry I linked to is unfortunately a VERY accurate representation of my writing style 7 years ago. That's why I want to make my own dream journal someday...])

Okay, if the whole reason I posted this was to show you the video, maybe I should stop rambling so much about a vaguely similar idea I thought of five years ago and never did anything with or even mentioned until now.

Oh, turns out the SMW Randomizer is a GitHub project. So while it wouldn't be as easy as editing a text file, theoretically I actually could add new words to the list of random words for level names if I were confident enough with my knowledge of GitHub to do that. (Which I'm not. I always needed help uploading files to GitHub in my classes. And actually, I might've just assumed that it would be possible to contribute just because there's a "Contribute" button on the page.)

Oh well, playing around with it should still be fun anyway :)

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
