80s Kids Rejoice, There's A Workout Mix That Turns Your Gym Into A Video Game - For Charity!

- Page 1

Playing a video game is an easy way to experience some crazy situations that you would never go through in your real life. For example, how many evil giant turtle men have you faced in your day? Probably none, right? Well, in the video game world we have all battled Bowser more times than we can count, so at least that's something.

One of the best parts about these games is the music. It's always able to get you psyched up to battle the boss and makes you feel like you can conquer anything. You may not even realize how much it can affect you, but if you ever try to play them with the music muted, you will absolutely feel the difference.

One company has decided to bring the powerful motivational energy that this music gives you and translate it to your real life in a way that will make you feel like you are living in the game. Run Hundred has created an 80s-inspired 8-bit-style collection of music that is the perfect way to get your workout in, and it is all for a good cause.

Run Hundred's project isn't just going to get you feeling ready to run, it's also going to help people around the world. The profits from the two disc collection are being donated to Run Hundred's charitable partners which help people across America and in 70 countries around the world.

The music itself is really amazing and will make you feel like you are a character in one of your favorite video games.

87-Year-Old Grandma Uses Microsoft Paint To Create Beautiful Masterpieces

Using the computer as a kid was kind of a privilege that you didn't get everyday. Kids now have little computers in their pockets from a young age, so probably a lot of the novelty has worn off. Even when we weren't allowed to use the internet, there was one program that would entertain us for hours, and that was Microsoft Paint.  The simple software that came preinstalled on every computer was basically everyone's favorite thing. The only thing we would use more than Paint was probably Solitaire. Between Paint and Solitaire we could have spent hours on the

'The Oregon Trail' Is Back And More Portable Than Ever, And We Can't Wait To Die Of Dysentery

Growing up, we didn't really have the same advanced video game as kids today have. We had to use our imaginations. Sure, looking back it was a little bit less than impressive, but honestly, we had more fun playing those simple games than almost any of these extremely complicated ones. Oregon Trail is perhaps one of the most notorious and iconic games that we played during computer class. It seemed to be loaded up onto every school computer, so that we could learn all about traveling on the frontier, including the struggles that came with it. Sure, about 90% of

There's Going To Be A 'Ghostbusters' Version Of Pokemon Go And We Know Who We're Gonna Call

Watching Ghostbusters as a kid basically meant that we all believed in ghosts to some extent. Sure, we knew Slimer wasn't going to come around the corner because Spengler had him under control, but also, what if he did? We weren't about to get caught off guard, so we spent all our free time rewatching the movie, catching up on the cartoon, and playing with every Ghostbusters-themed toy we could find to make sure our ghost catching skills were up to snuff. Personally, I know that I had countless dreams where I would be chasing the ghosts around my neighborhood

Macaulay Culkin Opens Up About 'Home Alone' And 'My Girl' In New Interview With Ellen

Macaulay Culkin was one of the biggest stars of the 90s. He was in so many of our childhood favorites including both of the Home Alone movies, My Girl, and Richie Rich. His ability to act so well at such a young age gave him an advantage over a lot of the other child stars at the time, and by the time he was a teenager he had been in over a dozen movies. It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a
