Mario and Bowser are puttin' their dukes up... on a DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION BATTLE! Who is going to win this epic confrontation between good and evil? May the best dancer win!

This picture is mostly a thank you gift for my dearest girlfriend, *lamarce. Her constant presence, support and help in my comic booking "career" (if we can say so) is really one of those things that keep me going on when times get hard. Her help was especially precious during the writing of The 3 Little Princesses. She proved to be a great brainstorming companion when came time to find ideas, or when I just plain hit a wall.

Some of her great ideas found their way into the final comic, which are:

• The cosmic duct tape;
• The TV presentator's dialogue on page 8;
• The Sleepover Cap of Destiny (inspired from a concept she came up with a long time ago);
• The cement cake becoming a Mistake;
• The Whacka Juice (the name, not the idea).

She also played the "editor" role by pointing out my typos, and helping with the French translation of the comic.

This picture is one of her ideas as well.

So I want to ask you all a little favour. If you liked T3LP, instead of commenting here with the usual "good job" kind of message, I ask you to go to her gallery and leave her a message of your appreciation for the ideas she gave for the sake of the comic. If you can't do that, at the very least, just look around and check out her stuff. I'm pretty sure she'll appreciate it, and that you'll find something interesting along the way. ;) She deserves her part of the cake for her contribution.

So what are you waiting for?

I think the song Mario and Bowser are dancing to is "Speed Over Beethoven" by Rose. BTW, "Speed Over Beethoven" is my #1 FAVORITE song for DDR, the 2nd being "La Copa De La Vida (The Cup of Life)" by Patrick Victorio. I'm just saying, because that might be a reason why Mario and Bowser are dancing so fast.
Haha. Luigi playing donkey kong. Awesome ^^

Irony of it all, there WAS a Dance Dance Revolution with Mario in it, titled "Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix"

In it, Mario must dance his way to his goals.

I remember when DDR was cool. I was there for the music. It got me hooked on European electronica bands.

However, with jokes such as "Dance Like an Idiot" from Regular Show and from Gravity Falls, a parody of the game "Dancy Pants Revolution", which, while there used to be arcade games in 7-11s and other convenience stores when the store in the show was shut down in May 1995, Dance Dance Revolution did not appear in America until the 2nd half of 1998. (I found that particular episode very unenjoyable with the fact that the food from a near-20 year old should have been rotting on the shelf.) Because of these jokes, I dare not reveal to anyone I was a groupie for the game.

So yes, DDR brings back the memories of dance to music in a freestyle mode I was in, dancing like crazy.

Sadly, I wish I could brush off JG Quintel's humor as staid and clichéd. But my mom likes the show and yes, I walked into that joke.

She also likes Gravity Falls. She understood how I pointed out every inaccuracy and anachronism as being part of my overthinking.

I like the picture, as it reminds me of my days going to arcades when I had the money.
