Check out this exclusive photo of Enya in her role as Mary O. in the upcoming--

Oh wait, April Fools' Day is already pretty much over. That, and this "exclusive photo" might also just be an existing photo of Enya edited onto a Super Mario Maker background and with Mary O.'s clothes drawn over hers. Made by me. Because, again, my entry about Mary O. and Yamamura: The Movie was an April Fools prank. :P


Why I didn't actually use that picture in the entry itself - cut because I'm guessing that out of my April Fools entries, the MO&Y entry was the least interesting to anyone besides meCollapse )

---

Oh, and all those other things (Photobucket somehow taking down non-Photobucket userpics; my considering deleting this journal; my other journal being suspended; this site shutting down) were April Fools pranks too, even if you see this before I'm done changing the Photobucket placeholder userpics back to the normal ones (which I probably won't get done with all of tonight). So please, don't panic. Please. :)

I have to say, after over three years of trying to fix various broken images and other things in my journal, it was so surreal putting time and energy into breaking some of my images instead. :P


This is pretty much how it felt!



To those of you who've read any of these April Fools entries and still like me: Thank you for tolerating and putting up with the fact that I have such a weird sense of humor. Also thank you for putting up with my fanboying, if you read that one. :P


If you missed any of these April Fools entries, here they are:
Mary O. and Yamamura: The Movie: LJ DW
Photobucket'd userpics: LJ DW
Account suspended: LJ DW
Where should I move my entries to now?: LJ DW
Since I couldn't add a poll to the LJ version of the previous entry after it was posted, I was forced to put that in a separate entry instead. And then to crosspost that entry to DW just because I don't like the idea of a LJ entry not having ANY counterpart on DW. (though I made the DW version private until now)


Even if you normally read my entries only on LJ or DW, I recommend making an exception here and reading both copies of each of my April Fools entries, because as part of the joke this year, I might have thrown my usual attempts at making my LJ and DW look nearly identical out the window for the day and deliberately introduced a few subtle differences between the versions of these entries... ;)
Poll #2079996 Maybe we don't know where we're going...

Where should I copy all of my content to now that my DW account is suspended and LJ is apparently going to be shut down by 2019?

MySpace
0(0.0%)
Xanga
0(0.0%)
Bebo
0(0.0%)
GeoCities
1(33.3%)
Miiverse
0(0.0%)
cave paintings
2(66.7%)

OH COME ON!!!

Okay, SERIOUSLY?

It was bad enough that Photobucket took down my LJ userpics somehow and my DW is suspended.

NOW I heard that LJ might be shut down at the end of the year??

Where am I supposed to move all my stuff to if that's true?! It's like today is Matt's Day Starts Out Amazing But Then Everything Goes Wrong At Once Day or something...

Where should I move all my content to now?


On the plus side, it looks like MatPat ISN'T going to be the voice actor for Yamamura! (and now everyone's mad that they replaced him but kept Enya, making my opinion about that movie even MORE unpopular...)


*I think the game's been out long enough that it's safe to put songs like this as the music tag without anagramming it...
You know how I said that I was planning on leaving LJ because Photobucket managed to (SOMEHOW??) take down all my LJ userpics but not my DW ones?

Scratch that. I was just about to delete my LJ account, but then I happened to check and:


MY DW IS SUSPENDED NOW.

Those seven months I spent fixing my entries on DW were all for NOTHING.



And those people hate LiveJournal's staff??


And now some of you are going to say that I deserve to have my LJ userpics and my DW taken down because I'm planning to see Mary O. and Yamamura: The Movie, aren't you? :(
...



Okay.



HOW, JUST HOW, DID PHOTOBUCKET MANAGE TO REPLACE ALL MY LIVEJOURNAL USERPICS WITH THEIR PLACEHOLDER IMAGE?!

HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE??

My userpics aren't even hosted ON Photobucket!!!


I'm... quite scared right now. :O



Fortunately, my DW userpics don't seem to be affected for whatever reason. (YET...)



You know what? I never thought I'd say this, but I think I decided to leave LJ for real and move to DW permanently. It was so much easier when I only had one journal to maintain... (Though while I highly doubt I'll change my mind about this, please, if you list me as a friend on here, keep me listed just in case).

Goodbye, LiveJournal.
https://www.mariowiki.com/Mary_O._and_Yamamura:_The_Movie

"Mary O. and Yamamura: The Movie[1] is an upcoming live-action film based loosely on the game Super Mario Maker and especially the online Super Mario Maker: Crash Course comic series starring Mary O. and Yamamura on said game's official website. The movie was first mentioned by Yamamura at the end of episode 7 of said comics, but was originally believed by fans to be a one-off joke and not an actual upcoming film, especially since Mary O. immediately denies the existence of such a movie; however, in April 2018, Mary O. and Yamamura was confirmed to be an actual movie when Nintendo released an official teaser trailer on their YouTube channel[2]. The film is scheduled to be released in September 2018."

"Nothing is known about the plot thus far - or indeed, if it is possible for such a movie to have a plot - but it is confirmed that Mary O. will be played by Irish singer-songwriter Enya Brennan, and"

"but it is confirmed that Mary O. will be played by Irish singer-songwriter Enya Brennan, and"

"Mary O. will be played by Irish singer-songwriter Enya"


Whuh-- Buh-- Juh-- Zuh-- Gqxuh--

DID I READ ANY OF THAT RIGHT?!

There's going to be a movie with MARY O. in it?!?

Played by ENYA?!?! :D :D :D


I'm fanboying so much right now that I'm fanGIRLing!... yeah okay, I guess that makes no sense whatsoever, but oh well. :P


Wait... how can this movie even exist?? I thought Nintendo and Illumination were already working on an animated Mario movie – is Nintendo working on the animated movie AND Mary O. & Yamamura at the same time for some reason? And as much as I like the Super Mario Maker Crash Course comics, the fact remains that it's just an eight-episode-long tutorial for making good Super Mario Maker levels - how can ANYONE possibly adapt it into a full-length movie?? And just how many bets did Enya lose to end up having to play the guide to a video game manual??

...Okay, why am I looking a gift unicorn in the esophagus? MARY O., the most underrated fictional character I know of, is going to be in a MOVIE. Played by ENYA. This is the best thing that has happened to me this decade. :D


And yes, I KNOW, I KNOW, people are upset that they didn't get a Japanese actress for Mary O., and I respect their opinions. But come on... Enya music notwithstanding, I never thought my ♯1 celebrity crush OR my ♯1 fictional character crush would be in a movie whatsoever!! Now the former is going to be PLAYING the latter??

You'll probably all hate me for this (and I know I say that a lot, but I'm even more sure of it this time...), but sorry, I personally am NOT going to miss out on this movie!!

To me, this is going to be the best movie EVER!

...well, unless there turns out to be a catch to it, like maybe a certain YouTuber who makes up theories about video games that a lot of his fans take too seriously and blindly accept as fact is also in this movie or something. But that would never happen!


EDIT: Guess who they picked to do the voice of Yamamura. :(

Why didn't I see that in the article the first time? How did I manage to copy and paste the entire remainder of that sentence without noticing that it ends with "Yamamura will be voiced by Matthew Patrick of the YouTube channel Game Theory"?!

Enya being in a movie as Mary O. is still enough that I'll watch it, but WHY does MatPat have to also be in it? :(
I made thirteen posts on Miiverse on January 5, 2013 (though I've only put the first six in this entry). For nearly a year, that was the record of most Miiverse posts I made in a single day (if not counting replies since those weren't in the backup...) And no, I can't think of anything about that day that would make me post to Miiverse more often.

Before that, my record was nine posts each on December 29 and 30, 2012 (and thus, so far those are the only other two days that I turned into two-parters in this "backup my Miiverse posts on LJ and DW" series).


What do you think of these Miiverse backup entries so far? Should I post them more often? Less often? Include more Miiverse posts at a time? Less Miiverse posts at a time? I know probably not all of you are interested in these but I like having my Miiverse posts still existing on the Internet in some form. :)

I was supposed to have posted this one last week. This feature just keeps steadily getting less and less regular...

My goal is still to post these on Tuesday or Wednesday as many weeks as possible - I'm just not gonna keep pretending that I'm good at sticking to it.

3D NES???

I remember wondering (since high school, I think) what it'd be like if there was a program that automatically converted 2D graphics (in general, but especially NES and SNES graphics) to 3D, or what corrupted NES/SNES graphics would look like in 3D at all - apparently, the NES half of my question was answered a couple of years ago and I didn't know about it until now!

(And yeah, I know I'm posting a lot of "video game videos" entries all at once but don't worry, this is the last one for now. Probably.)





More under the cut!Collapse )

Seven or eight Marios at once!

And here's a couple of interesting Mario videos I didn't originally discover five years ago...


Super Mario Beads

I found these videos randomly one day at some point after Super Mario Beads 3 was already released (so it has to have been November 2012 or later) and meant to post them here* but never did. Then I rediscovered them this week so I finally got around to posting them five years later! :)






*Well, okay, if you're reading this on DW, that's not entirely true because I wasn't on DW yet :P
Why am I still calling this Miiverse Backup Twuednesday if half the time I'm not sticking to my planned update schedule of every Tuesday or Wednesday?

Oh well, here's the last four of my 33 Miiverse posts in 2012! :)

(This is probably the first Soviet Russia joke I ever made - not just on Miiverse, but ever. I used to find them overused along with many other Internet memes that I hadn't heard of before 2008 or so and didn't understand, but then when I discovered mezzacotta in 2011, I really liked how certain characters make surreal Soviet Russia jokes - with this one probably being the most famous - and decided Soviet Russia jokes in general weren't so bad after all. Most of the Internet memes that annoyed me back then are a lot funnier than certain more recent Internet memes...)

YES!

If I counted right, I'm FINALLY halfway done fixing my entries! :D I still wish I hadn't had to waste six whole months just to get this far, but... YAY!!!

Oh, and since it's Wednesday, it's time for a new Miiverse Backup Twuednesday post. Hopefully I'll get that done shortly. Might be late this week again though...

(And yes, I'll still be halfway done after I make that post - I've fixed 621 entries and this entry is my 1,241st entry, which is one less than 621×2. :) )

:ᴅ

I'm finally up to 600 entries fixed!

Out of 1,240...

And it took a while to even get this far... you might've even forgotten I was spending a lot of time fixing everything that's messed up in my LJ and DW entries.

But hey, I'm almost halfway done! :)
It's Tuesday so here's some more archived Miiverse posts. Getting close to the final battle in New Super Mario Bros. U in these reruns! :)

Blurb

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...
