The Power Glove Shirt


I just received this gem of a shirt in the mail today from 80stees.com. I must say, it is a snug fit, so if you are looking to purchase one for yourself, consider going a size up (especially if you are on the border between two sizes for t-shirts).

I can't wait to walk around and quote The Wizard with this shirt on. It's so bad.

Super Mario Bros. World Record!

A new Super Mario Bros. world record has been set by Andrew Gardikis, and verified by Speed Demos Archive at an amazing four minutes and fifty-eight seconds!

The amount of skill involved in the speed run is a beauty to witness; as we're talking about extremely precise jumps, incredible knowledge of the game's hit detection on enemies, and use of the "secret" warp zone found in World 4-2.

There has been a lot of praise already for what Andrew has accomplished, but of course, there are those that are questioning the validity of the run already on YouTube (Negativity on YouTube? No way!). I can't say I blame their skepticism, since his run is probably as close to perfection as you can get in regards to the finishing time.

Well kudos to you anyways, Andrew Gardikis, for I am still in awe of your skill!

You can watch his speed run on YouTube.

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday season with their families, because I know I sure did.

A couple of my presents consisted of Teen Wolf and Ghostbusters on Blu-ray, and I am excited to do future reviews of these movies on the site. I will more than likely do a review of Teen Wolf first, seeing as how I'm a huge Michael J. Fox fan.


All I have to say is, "what are you looking at dicknose?"

Oh, Joyous Knight.

On the way home last night, I stopped by my local Best Buy and browsed some of the Blu-ray deals they had going on. To my surprise, I came across the Batman Anthology (1989 - 1997) on sale for $39.99. When the set came out, it was $99.99, so I was excited to finally purchase it for the sale price.

When I got to the counter, however, it rang through as $29.99. It was then that I realized that Christmas had come early. To top off this steal, I even had a $5 coupon from the Reward Zone program in my pocket.

Do yourself a favor if you haven't picked up this Blu-ray set yet, and check online at BestBuy.com.

On a side note, with this Christmas season being overwhelmingly busy, I haven't been able to post much content on the site. Starting with the New Year, I'll be posting more episodes of Chasing Perfection, and then moving straight on with Season Two. I do have a few other things up my sleeve as well, but for now, please have a happy holiday season everyone!

Waxing Nostalgic will be back in full force in 2012.
