As you guys know it's Mario appreciation month, and surprisingly there isn't a thread on this board for the Mario fandom specifically. ITT post cool remixes, discuss Mario lore, and debate your head cannons.

Thread theme:

So, how many jobs has our red plumber had?
Carpenter (Donkey Kong)
Cement mixer (Game & Watch Marios Cement factory)
Plumber (Mario Bros)
Space explorer (that one game boy game I forgot the name of)
Time Traveler (Mario's time machine)

Those are the ones I can pull off the top of my head. Fell free to add more.
Also, mind listening to this master piece?

I remember the times back in 2013-2014 when It was the year where I was more interested in Mario, I researched so much in the wiki and learned so much about the Mario installments.
If it weren't for Mario, this wouldn't have happened to me, it was one of my favorite things in the past.
I remember the times when I called Koopa Troopas turtles, that was funny until I looked up the name "turtle" and found out it's real names was "Koopa Troopa", it lead me to a whole lot of old titles and new ones, mostly from the main Platforming games.
Super Mario Land 2 is one of my favorites, it was pretty easy and it was fun, I even liked all of the ideas in the game.
But man Wario was go derpy at the time.

Speaking of that, I wish they would go for more better surprises for a villain, Bowser isn't scary anymore and you know how it eventually ends...

Uhh... shouldn't this be in Video Games? I mean Mario is a Video Game franchise after all!

This isn't just about Mario games only. It's for the whole experience.

Isn't that exactly what the BTB movement was about though.

Absolutely.

What got everyone into Mario, btw? For me it was because I could relate to the shy guys haha.

I probably got to Mario when I touch the SNES library when I was a kid... like Super Mario Allstars because that was a good game and later on especially 2007 I want something that you can create your own levels rather than just playing those that Nintendo made so I found Super Mario Flash online and yeah. What a fun time when I was younger.

Oh, I got into Mario with Super Mario World to be honest, but not the SNES version, rather the GBA remake. It was the first game that I ever played, and I'm still playing it to this day as it's still really playable and holds up well.

First Mario game I ever played was Super Mario Bros 2 at the age of 8. I couldn't deal with it properly at that age, lawl. Later on I came to play some "cheap" Mario games hosted by Newgrounds, and I started watching canon games on Youtube, until I discovered Super Mario 63 and Super Mario Bros X.

Well, my first ever non-edutainment game was NSMB DS! I have very fond memories of playing that game, along with SMA2 and Superstar Saga!

And, I still love Mario! I often play Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario Maker, and I also enjoy playing SMBX! Mario is a great series, and I love that the fans are paying tribute to the series with all the awesome fangames, fanart and videoes! All in all, I love Mario!
