I was able to find a bunch of vintage games during recent visit to the back of an arcade at Cedar Point. I had forgotten back when Nintendo’s poster boy, Mario started as the hero of Donkey Kong that he looked more like an Italian stereotype then he does now. Give him a chef’s hat and a red neck scarf and he could pass for that classic pizza parlor statue they always have in the corner behind of the counter. Apparently originally he was known as “Jumpman” which is odd since he can’t jump in the start of Donkey Kong. I guess later he was known as “Mr. Video” until he was named after the landlord of his japanese creator.
just posted this over on my beer blog after finding the swedish version of this poster for a buster keaton/jimmy durante film with the awesome title of “what! no beer?”. ah prohibition beer movies. this one has a pretty awesome title, and some stylish poster art.

This man sings songs about God to you in dog make-up. What it means I do not know. Is is cause dog is god spelled backwards? Whatever it is it makes me feel dirty inside. Found this one via boingboing
