Butcher Billy mashes up MARIO with SID & NANCY for gorgeous ANARCHY

BUTCHER BILLY BACK IN THE FUCKING HOUSE.

Fuck yeah! The new Butcher Billy jam is here, and this time he is taking his talents to anarchy. The pop-cultural remixing maestro has exorcised the glimmer of the Mushroom Kingdom from Mario’s soul, replacing the sheen with a gritty Sid & Nancy vibe. The winners? All of us.

I don’t get you, Minecraft. But I want to. Oh, I so do. I don’t get how someone created Super Mario Bros. 1-1 within your walls, but that doesn’t matter. It is still damn impressive.

PETA Is Pissed About Mario’s Tanooki Suit. Dios Mio.

PETA must be bored. Or worried that their ridiculous posturing is getting boring. So they’ve come out swinging at the gaming industry. Last week they were like tots worried about being able to kill a rat in Battlefield 3. Now they’re sweating Mario’s Tanooki suit.

Video: Mario and Luigi Cut A Rug At the 2011 National Jitterbug Championships

First off,  I love that there’s a national jitterbug championship. Fantastic. Secondly, I love swingers  Morgan Day and Emily Wigger. They danced to what  Michael McWherton accurately calls “chippy Mario tunes”. It’s a total dork lovefest, complete with level clear music and actual props.
