NESathon - 100 Hours of NES MS Marathon Drive! -
A cool friend of mine (Pixelated) has started a marathon of playing NES games for 100 hours straight with a few friends. They will be playing many games, and are even taking requests! All proceeds from this event are going to charity to help with Multiple Sclerosis.
Here’s his Press Release:
The NES for MS Marathon Drive goes live Friday, June 1st at 11am EST
Gamers Unite! Unite to run a NESathon of classic video games for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. The goal is raise money to fight multiple sclerosis while attempting to play NES games non-stop for 100 hours, from Friday, June 1st to Tuesday, June 5th at 3pm. Can it happen? You can find out by watching the entire event as it’s broadcast live at nesathon.blogspot.ca.
Participants will be playing some games they’re good at, some games they’re bad at, and some undeniable classics. Highlights will include the Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda and Mega Man series. Kirby’s Adventure, Duck Tales, Power Blade, Kid Icarus, Bubble Bobble, Little Samson, Battle Kid, Ninja Gaiden, Punch Out and many more! Requests will also be taken from the live chat room.
100% of donations received will go to the MS Society. Funds raised from the event will help enable continued funding of support services for people touched by MS. This includes support groups as well as equipment and funding programs which help improve the quality of life for those living with MS.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, with an estimated 55,000 – 75,000 currently living with the disease and 1,000 new cases every year. And while there has been great progress in research and treatments in recent months, there is presently no cure.
Noble cause, man.

Homestuck - Green Ghost - coloUrs and mayhem: Universe B -
So my song, Cosmic Surgeon? People told me to enter a contest that came up right around the time I finished it. It was for the Homestuck Fan Album, which actually turned out to be 2 albums lol. So yup, I entered, and I was one of the winners, in fact it’s actually the first track (track 1 is an opener)… I’m kinda astonished by that today, but I guess it fits!
About the song, I called it Cosmic Surgeon because of John and that big drill thing he did… And the whole cancer thing… So I guess the song did kinda cater as a theme for him already. What a coincidence that as soon as I make a remix, I can enter it into a contest right away and it actually wins. When I wrote it, I just really wanted to capture how the entire comic made me feel at the time, especially after watching Cascade. It’s a theme for John, but I also think of it as kind of a real “Homestuck” theme for the entire thing, I guess, as a lot of people kinda obsess over Doctor…
Anyway, I remastered this version of the song, and added a few other elements, and instrument balance, per a couple suggestions by Radiation Fox… So you can think of this as more of a Cosmic Surgen v. 0.1…
Also check out the really atmospheric art for my track by Koba, congrats:
