This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!

Oops! Look out for references you somehow never noticed over a decade ago! @ 06:25 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: yowser!
Soundtrack: Chip's Challenge soundtrack - CHIP02 (and a Mario Paint remix of it, haha)

So... I've known about Chip's Challenge since I first played it in late 2004 or early 2005. And I've had Mario Party 3 since... I don't even remember when, but probably sometime between 2004 and 2007.

And yet it somehow took me twelve years or so to realize that "Chip Shot Challenge" (the name of one of the minigames in Mario Party 3) is likely a reference to Chip's Challenge?! I literally just realized it yesterday! Wow.

Has that ever happened to you where some game/movie/book/show/song/etc. you like makes a reference to another game/movie/whatever you like and you don't realize it until years after you first liked both? :)


In completely unrelated news, now I've fixed 218 out of 1,193 entries. At the rate I'm going, I won't have them all fixed until about November 28. And by then something else will have probably gone wrong and I'll have to spend three months fixing something else on LJ and/or DW. :(

I've watched Gilmore Girls since I was seven and never fully appreciated all the great music they played, especially in the early seasons. I recently started re-watching the early seasons and was pretty stoked to hear the Velvet Underground and the Shins.

You have a long road to go on those entries. But think of how satisfied you'll be when you're done.

I've been trying to think of that, but I've also been trying desperately to catch up on my friends page and a lot of other sites I've been behind on for years now - so when I'm done fixing all my entries, I'll just have to go back to catching up on all of that.

But at least I'll have less anxiety about the future when I'm done :)

Less anxiety for all! I agree with you.
