Touching Fuzzy, Getting Dizzy! – Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island Live Stream – Part 1

A blast from the past stumbles in for a random late night stream! Had a wonderful time playing through the first few worlds of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island while hanging out with everyone that came by. Topics of discussion throughout the stream included the unfortunate fate of my Nintendo Switch, managing my growing hair in the middle of a growing pandemic, a racing-heavy PlayStation 1 show and tell, and stonks!

I Just Want a Cape! – Super Mario World Live Stream

With my 3-year-old “nephew” tuning in, we decided to play a little bit of Super Mario World for him! I embarrass myself by being completely unable to get a cape, and I struggle to explain where Yoshi disappeared to after I jumped off his back to reach the final platform. Apologies for the conflicting music. Will remember to shut off the lo-fi beats for games where I want to play the music!

Hip-Hop Week | “Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis”: The Most Iconic Video Game Reference in Hip-Hop History

Hip-Hop Week officially begins on In Third Person! Of course we had to start with the N-O, T-O, R-I, O, U-S!


On August 9th, 1994, Christopher Wallace released “Juicy”, the first single from his forthcoming debut album Ready to Die. The song would peak at #1 on the Billboard charts and is still cited as one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all-time.

Though it may not have been the first time video games and hip-hop connected – and it certainly wouldn’t be the last – the Notorious B.I.G. yelled out what would become the most iconic video game reference in hip-hop, and quite possibly all of music.

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis/When I was dead broke man, I couldn’t picture this
– Notorious B.I.G., “Juicy”

What is it about this line that continues to resonate today? Being associated with an all-time great rap song by an all-time great rapper goes a long way, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

Celebrating Hip-Hop Week at In Third Person!

“It was all a dream! I used to read [Gamepro] magazine!”

My love of video games is well-documented here on In Third Person. However, another one of my passions is hip-hop music. As a kid, I fell in love with the boom bap, studied the older records before my time, and have kept a close ear to where it’s gone ever since. For a time, I was even making my own beats and I dabbled in rapping for a bit, though the less said about my rapping, the better.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll drop one post per day covering different places where my love of video games collides with my love of hip-hop. Until then, pack your cardboard, rehearse your pre-written raps to make sure they sound like freestyles, and come back tomorrow for the boom bap!

Retro Game Collecting in the Margins

Inspired by reclaiming a bunch of my old retro games from my parents’ house, I decided to dip my toe back into the world of retro game collecting. While I never had any motivations to build a massive library filled with complete collections of games, I did have a very specific criteria in mind so that I don’t fall down the rabbit hole. So far, the process of collecting has moved rather slowly.
