5 Best ROM Hacks for the NES

As the prices of video games sky-rocketed many video gamers had to get creative about how to enjoy video games without spending too much money. At first these gamers turned to Emulators of old video game systems that would let users play old NES, SNES and Genesis games. Eventually they got tired of that and took an even bigger creative leap into the world of Rom hacks.

Basically video gamers started hacking ROMs, the file that plays a video game on an Emulator, to alter a classic video game. For any gamer out there that has not yet discovered hacked ROMs then these are 10 of the best hacked ROMs to check out.

Mega Man in the Mushroom Kingdom
The title is pretty self explanatory. Mega Man in the Mushroom Kingdom is a hack of the original Mega Man ROM that is altered to make the world look like the Mushroom Kingdom from Super Mario Bros. There are bricks to break, coins to collect and pipes to climb up and down.

Metroid Deluxe
Metroid Deluxe does not combine two games like the previous Mega Man ROM. Metroid Deluxe is just a completely altered version of the original Metroid. Any gamer that has played the original Metroid on the NES will get to enjoy a completely new Metroid game because all the items are moved to new places, the puzzles are changed and remembering the old NES version will do no good.

The Legend of Zelda Outlands
This is the best Legend of Zelda ROM hack and is similar to Metroid Deluxe. This hacked ROM will look just like a normal Legend of Zelda NES game but everything has been changed. The items are different places, secret passages are in different places and the graphics of most of the monsters have been changed.

Mario Adventure
Mario Adventure is the ultimate Mario ROM hack from the NES. The amazing thing about this hack of Super Mario Bros. 3 is that the author did not just change graphics or the placement of items but he completely changed the game engine. The author came up with completely new enemies and new abilities for Mario.

Mario Fantasy Adventure
Mario Fantasy Adventures is another mash-up of two games like Mega Man in the Mushroom Kingdom ROM. This ROM hack combines Mario with the world of Final Fantasy. A typical battle in Final Fantasy will have the heroes on the right with the creatures on the left but in this version you’ll see Mario and friends on the right and common Mario enemies like Koopas and Goombas on the left.

5 Best Sondheim Musicals

In the history of musical theatre, there are names that have become legend. Rodgers and Hammerstein usually ring bells for even the casual audience member. Stephen Sondheim was a student of Hammerstein and learning at the hands of a master helped turn Sondheim into one of the most complex musical theatre composers ever. His shows test the usual constraints of what many are used to seeing and hearing in musicals. Let’s take a look at five of his best musicals.

5. “Sunday in the Park with George” (1984) Inspired by a painting, this complex musical follows an artist as he works on his masterpiece. Sondheim served as both lyricist and composer.

4. “Assassins” (1990) Always toying with edgy characters, Sondheim turned many famous assassins throughout history into a musical. Sondheim both composed the music and wrote the lyrics.

3. “Company” (1970) A concept musical, “Company,” really showed Sondheim’s willingness to take chances. It bounces around in time and follows a guy named Bobby as he balances wives and girlfriends and friends. Sondheim wrote the lyrics and composed the music.

2. “Sweeney Todd” (1979) A complex, operatic musical, “Sweeney Todd” soars in a terrifying way. It follows a demon barber who seeks revenge. Sondheim wrote both the music and lyrics.

1. “Into the Woods” (1987) Sondheim wrote the music and lyrics to this beloved musicals that turns well known fairy tales on their head and shows what happens after happily ever after ends.

Stephen Sondheim has many incredible shows not on this list, but I think this is his top five best shows that he created both musically and lyrically. Definitely, check out these amazing shows!.

5 of the Best Vegan Cheese's on the Market

Earlier this year, I went on a vegan diet for 21 days. This meant giving up milk, cheese, meat and other animal by-products. I really didn’t want to give up cheese. I love cheese. It is one of the best foods ever made, in my humble opinion. Instead of giving up cheese for the vegan diet, I was encouraged to find substitute cheese’s that would qualify for the vegan diet. Here are the 5 best vegan cheese’s on the market today and where you can get them. You might want to try them even if you are not vegan!

Daiya Shredded Vegan Italian Cheese
This is the best of the best when it comes to vegan cheese. It comes in two versions, cheddar or Italian. The Italian is perfect for pizza or lasagna dishes. The cheddar melts perfectly and is a great compliment to vegan tacos, nachos and burrittos. Daiya’s vegan cheese rates at the top of the list because it is a great cheese subsitute for those with allergies. What’s important is what it doesn’t contain… soy, gluten and nuts. Visit Daiya to find a store near you that sells this brand or visit Vegan Essentials to have it shipped to you. ½ lb bag retails for approximately $5.25.

Parma by Eat in the Raw
Parmesan cheese compliments Italian dishes, salads and so much more. Eating in the Raw created the Parma with just a few ingredients and it takes just like real Parmesan cheese. Raw organic walnuts, nutritional yeast, and Celtic sea salt make up Parma’s very short ingredient list. Parma goes for $4.99 for a 3.5 oz bottle or a larger 7oz bottle goes for $7.99 at Vegan Essentials.

Organic Soy Feta by Sunergia Soyfoods
Feta is a great crumbly cheese perfect for Greek salads and Mediterranean dishes. Sunergia Soyfoods created a blend of organic and natural ingredients to make a vegan version of Feta cheese. Sunergia Soyfoods also makes a blue cheese version but as I am not a blue cheese fan I can’t say how good it is. Organic Soy Feta by Sunergia Soyfoods can be purchased at United Natural Foods, Albert’s Organic’s and Nature’s Best.

Vegan Cheese Singles by Galaxy Nutritional Foods
Personally, I’m not to fond of the vegan American cheese’s out there but Galaxy Nutritional Foods did a pretty decent joby with there Vegan Cheese Singles. They are perfect for putting on a quick veggie sandwich or topping off a veggie burger. An 8 slice package retails for $3.99 through Vegan Essentials but this brand can also be purchased at regular grocery stores with an organic section.

TEESE Vegan Nacho Cheese
Perfect for dipping Nacho’s TEESE is the vegan answer to traditional nacho cheese sauce. This is makes it to the best vegan cheese list because you can use it to make sauces, cheese spreads, dips and toppings. Add herbs to make dips and cheese spreads for your favorite vegetables. TEESE sells for $4.99 for a 10oz package. You can purchase this vegan cheese at almost any whole foods store or through Vegan Essentials online store.

5 Bible Verses that Have Made a Difference in My Life

I have been a Christian for over 40 years, and during that time I’ve found reading the Bible always brings encouragement and hope to a heavy heart. Even when times are good, it is inspiring to learn more about the wonderful God we serve. Listed below are 5 of my favorite encouragement verses and how they have impacted my life.

Safe In the Palm of His Hand
John 6:37Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me. And once that person is with me, I hold on and don’t let go. (The Message)

This verse is a beautiful picture of Jesus closing his hand around us, holding us firmly and safely in His palm, and protecting us from the things which would drag us away from Him. It’s empowering to remember that anything that would harm us must first pass through His grasp before it ever touches us. It’s a wonderful reminder that nothing can pull us away from His love-not even our own actions.

I became a Christian as a teenager, and I immediately wanted to be involved in my church. Hoping to channel that enthusiasm, the church leaders put me on the committee which was planning the promotion for the church’s building fund. The adults were working on a brochure, which I was supposed to help them write. It was exciting to be performing an important service, and to be working along side a group of mature Christians-or so I thought.

After the first meeting it was clear that these “mature” believers were more concerned about whether or not to have an air conditioner in the new sanctuary than they were about spiritual matters. They argued and fought through the entire meeting. I got my eyes off the creator and onto the creation, and it was discouraging. For 6 years after that day I refused to go to church, read the Bible or even consider anything relating to Christianity. “If that’s what Christians are like, why would I want to be one?” I reasoned.

During those 6 years I made some terrible choices and ended up with a lot of problems. I married an alcoholic, had a child and then had her stolen away from me. That was the lowest point in my life, and I feared I would have a nervous breakdown. But in the midst of my misery I found unexpected strength from an unexpected source. I wasn’t facing the future alone. The God I had rejected and turned away from was still there beside me, helping me cope with the devastating loss, ready to forgive and heal. Jesus held me safely in the palm of His hand and never once let me go, even when I gave up on Him. How amazing to think that, as Max Lucado puts it, “The one who holds all the aces holds your heart.”

Chosen For God’s Sake
Isaiah 43:25“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. (New International Version)

Fulton Sheen once said, “God does not love us because we are valuable. We are valuable because God loves us.” That’s the essence of this verse, and the essence of the entire Bible. God chooses to love us just because He wants to, and not because of anything we do to earn His love. It’s the reason he called an unknown man named Abram from an obscure town in ancient Mesopotamia, and the same reason he made a little Jewish girl named Esther a queen. It’s the reason he made a young girl from a little town in Pennsylvania a Christian, and it’s the same reason He has called you.

When I turned my back on Jesus, I spent 2 years studying the great religions of the world, trying to decide which was true. Every one of them stressed works as a means of progressing in faith or attaining a god’s favor. All religions were people reaching up, trying to touch the face of God. Only the Bible spoke of God reaching down, seeking to touch the hearts of people, willing to forgive their lack of love for Him.

When I returned to the faith of my youth, God forgave me even for deserting Him! It is reassuring to know that, since there was no sin in my past too great for Him to blot out, there is none in my future too big, either. The more I learn about Him, the more confident I am in His love and acceptance.

Because He chooses to adopt us into His family, we can relax and be ourselves, use the gifts He gave us, and love others fully. There is no measuring up required, no penance to be paid to earn His love. We don’t have to “do good” just to keep our standing with God.

He held on to me despite all my efforts to run from him. This verse reminds me daily that I can stand strong in my faith having the assurance that God loves me not because of who I am, but because of who He is. That will never change.

Blessed Beyond Belief
Malachi 3:10Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. (New International Version)

When we become part of God’s family, we also become part of the outworking of His plan for the earth. We are the hands He uses to do His work here. If He has given us the job, then surely He will also give us the means to do the work. Many times we have specific needs, but we don’t take them to God because we think they aren’t important enough to bother Him with. But God says to ask for everything we need, and if it is truly a need, He will help. I experienced this first hand in the context of my stained glass business.

A few years back we were having a very slow summer and the business was really lacking funds for many of the supplies we needed. Since I sell my work online, I use a lot of packing and shipping materials to complete my transactions. It had been an especially bad week, and I had a few orders to fill but no packing materials. I got so down I finally whined to God that He wasn’t helping me at all. “I don’t even have bubble wrap to ship my suncatchers,” I cried.

Feeling better after getting the problem off my chest, I turned to other duties. Soon I was taking a bag of trash to the shopping center’s dumpster, no longer thinking about my need. There on the top of the dumpster, not touching any trash, was the biggest roll of bubble wrap I have ever seen! It was just there, and no one was anywhere around. I laughed out loud. There could not have been a better answer if God Himself had opened heaven and handed it to me. Later in the week my neighbor came to my house with a pile of bubble wrap and asked if I could use it. Since then, I have received bubble wrap from a number of sources, all of it free. Now every time I wrap a suncatcher to mail I think of this verse and thank God.

Don’t Focus on How Big Your Problem is, Focus on How Big Your God Is
Ephesians 3:20God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. (The Message)

In the “Hebrew Names Version” of the Bible, the terms used are “able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.” I love this verse because, as a writer, I have a big imagination. I can think of some pretty wild situations, and come up with unusual ideas at the drop of a hat. But this verse says that God can even outdo me. He is the one who plants our creativity within our hearts. He is the one who gives our lives purpose and supplies the tools we need to accomplish His goals for us.

But the second half of the verse is even more encouraging. God doesn’t force us to do His will. He doesn’t send lightning bolts from heaven when we disappoint Him. Instead, He is that still, small voice deep within us that whispers encouragement when we make right choices, and directs us away from temptation. He nudges, and we respond. My prayer is that I always feel those gentle nudges and follow that gentle leading.

God took one of the greatest tragedies in my life, the loss of my baby girl, and used it to help others. As a mother who had experienced having a child taken, I was able to reach out to other mothers in the same situation, and offer them hope and encouragement. Only God could imagine a way of using something so awful in my life to bring hope into the lives of others.

God Carries Us Through Our Trials
Isaiah 43:2“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.” (NASB)

This verse is another precious assurance that God is always with us. In fact, He never promises to keep us from troubles or fears, but He does promise to walk through them right along side of us. God knows what is best for us, and He only allows things to happen which will shape and mold us to His purpose. No problem will come our way without His purpose, presence, and permission.

When Hurricane Charley rampaged across our area we had just purchased a stained glass store. It is located about a mile from the Gulf of Mexico, and was at definite risk for the immense storm surge that weather experts predicted that day. We spent hours preparing the store for the hurricane, taking panels out of the window, covering machinery with trash bags and getting everything off the floor in case of flooding. We fully realized that the storm could quickly blow out the windows, lift off the roof and destroy everything we owned. Ditto for our home located a few miles away. We were at the mercy of the oncoming storm.

It was frightening to think of the storm coming ashore just north of us as the weatherman predicted, but when we learned it had taken a sudden turn into Charlotte Harbor and increased to a Category 4 hurricane in minutes, we thought it was all over for us. The eye of the storm hit 10 miles from our home, and we huddled in the scant shelter of our bedroom listening to the winds and rain roar all around us. At that precise moment, when fear threatened to overwhelm me, I suddenly realized nothing that really mattered in my life had changed. God was still in control of all I was and all I owned. If He had allowed us to buy this store to use in His service, He would either preserve it, or provide a way for us to replace it. I prayed a prayer of thanksgiving, turning the properties and our lives over to Him, and immediately felt a surge of relief. It was like an ocean wave flooding over me. I was at perfect peace while the storm raged around me.

Charley proved to be a rapidly moving storm, and it was gone far sooner than we expected. Our home had weathered the storm with virtually no damage. With power lines down and debris littering the roads, we couldn’t check on our store, but when we turned on the local radio station, the on-air reporter was driving down the very road where it was located. He reported there was no damage to signs or buildings he passed, and we had yet another assurance that God had protected us and our possessions.

There is no “chance” or “act of nature” for a Christian. Our God is fully in control and He will never abandon us. He walked through the hurricane with us, and He will walk with you through the storms of your life if you let Him. The Bible tells us over and over that our Father delights in us, His children. Nothing touches us that has not first passed through the filter of His love.

5 Big Sports Comebacks

Note to my readers: This article was first published on Urban Daily.

It’s official: Michael Vick’s back, y’all.

After dazzling performances in Week 1 and Week 2 of the young NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback got the nod last Sunday ahead of Kevin Kolb, who was inked in as the No. 1 QB at the beginning of the year.

The resurgent Vick delivered under the pressure and bright lights in last Sunday’s game against the Jacksonsville Jaguars. The three- time All-Pro quarterback went 17-for-31 for 291 yards and 3 TDs in the Eagles’ romp in Jacksonsville. He also ran one in for a score.

After serving a 23-month federal sentence for his role in an illegal dog fighting ring, most thought Vick would never return to his electrifying self on the Gridiron after he was released from federal prison in March 2009. Through three games, Vick’s proved the haters wrong and if he keeps it popping this NFL season he appears on the verge of perhaps completing the biggest comeback story in pro football history.

However, Vick’s not the only former sports superstar to surprisingly regain his glory and old form after missing significant action during their beloved careers. Here are four other big comeback stories in professional sports throughout the years. Please enjoy and drop a comment.

Mike Tyson (boxing). After serving three years for raping beauty contestant Desiree Washington, Iron Mike initially came back knocking out dudes. He first beat Peter McNeely by disqualification (Round 1), then KO’d Buster Mathis, Jr. (Round 3), then KO’d Frank Bruno (Round 3) to win the WBA heavyweight championship, then KO’d Bruce Sheldon (Round 1) for the WBC title. And then … he met Evander Holyfield.

Ted Williams (baseball). This is my oldie but goodie on my list. Not once, but twice one of the best sluggers in baseball history left the sport to serve in the U.S. military as a Marine pilot. Williams, a two-time American League MVP, snagged his second Triple Crown in 1947, one year after serving three years in War World II. Then in ’58, five years after serving 15 months in Korea, the “old man” led the league in hitting (.328 average) at the age of 40.

Michael Jordan (basketball). To the astonishment of NBA fans, No. 23 bounced from the game on Oct. 6, 1993. But he gloriously returned on March 18, 1995. It took a quarter- of-a season and summer break for the five-time league MVP to regain his full magic, but once he got it back he torched the league and led the Chicago Bulls to its second three-peat of NBA titles (1996, 1997 and 1998). M.J. was great before that comeback, but he became the NBA’s greatest after it.

Muhammad Ali (boxing). “I got nothing against no Viet Cong,” Muhammad Ali said notably about the possibility of him fighting in the Vietnam War in the 1960s. “The Greatest” was bold for standing strong for his beliefs, but he was stripped of his license and couldn’t box for over three years. Once reinstated, he beat down heavyweight bruisers like Ken Norton and Joe Frazier and eventually capped things off by KO’ing George Foreman in the historic, thrilling “Rumble In The Jungle” in 1974 to regain his world championship belt.
