Mario Hacks

I just discovered, specifically its Cory Arcangel page. I still remember his hand hacked Clouds piece as being the only interesting piece at the 2004 Whitney Biennial. The ubu website has a bunch of his stuff, including his collaboration with Paper Rad where they again hand hacked a Mario Brothers cartridge to create a ravey movie:

See, they put a piece of video art free online and the world didn't end! Of course Cory and Paper Rad get all the praise and meanwhile some dude on youtube makes this hack (and makes you laugh) and gets nothing:
