Cactus


What the Heck is This?

When I made my first website over 20 years ago now, I included a cute little cactus drawing as an easter egg. Over time, friends and coworkers caught on and kept finding my easter eggs. So now I just let them live out in the open, like regular eggs.

This version of the Cactus is built in Pico-8, which is an entirely embedded, encapsulated 8-bit computer, very similar to the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The song is 'Moon Over Parma,' transposed painstakingly by hand into hexadecimals from sheet music. It's from the Drew Carey Show. I'm sorry - it wasn't worth it.
