    Okay... first post... and I searched the forums...

    I was at the gym and was listing to a random playlist on my Pre, heard the lyric...

    "Up up down down left right left right B A start
    Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you..."

    From the Moldy Peaches - Anyone Else But You...

    Does the code mean something else, like a cheat code from a video game? I can't believe I just picked this up randomnly....



    Anyone Else But You

    You're a part time lover and a full time friend
    The monkey on you're back is the latest trend
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
    I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    Here is the church and here is the steeple
    We sure are cute for two ugly people
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
    So why can't, you forgive me?
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    I will find my nitch in your car
    With my mp3 DVD rumple-packed guitar
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    Du du du du du du dudu
    Du du du du du du dudu
    Du du du du du du dudu du

    Up up down down left right left right B A start
    Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    You are always trying to keep it real
    I'm in love with how you feel
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    We both have shiny happy fits of rage
    You want more fans, I want more stage
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    Don Quixote was a steel driving man
    My name is Adam I'm your biggest fan
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    Squinched up your face and did a dance
    You shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants
    I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
    But you

    Du du du du du du dudu
    Du du du du du du dudu
    Du du du du du du dudu du
    But you

    Some of these young punks probably dont even know what an NES is (was?) and probably got to grow up on game systems that didnt use cartridges, let alone require you to blow, insert, wiggle, remove, blow, repeat until something other than scrambled garbage came up. Today, all kids know is that you turn it on and insert disc.

    If the disc doesnt work, mommy or daddy buys you another. Gag..

    We had a workout built right into our game system! with enough frustration, we would actually something else... we called it playing outside. Of course that was before the days of over-the-top abduction stories on the news and was also back in the day when if a kid got out of line, someone else's parent would have to step in to straighten things out, and the lawyers didnt get involved. Today.. nooOOOOooo, smack a kid with a shovel and its "assault" this, "child abuse" that... bah. /rant

    Anyone remember Dreamcast? So ahead of its time.

    And yes it was the Contra code for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System)

    Not only does the Konami Code have it's origins in an age past but the tradition of the code has kept up over the decades. May I turn your attention to:

    Konami Code Sites

    By the way, it's easy to tell some of you are posers. SNES and Atari? They were decades apart and barely comparable in technology. Maybe you meant SNES and Master System or something. And no one loved the Atari, it was laced with **** like E.T and Pitfall. The only system worse than Atari may have been the CDi a decade later. Be real, maybe two of the people on this thread have ever typed the Konami code into a game console before. It's okay, I didn't get to smoke pot with Bob Marley -somethings you just miss out on. No need to pose.

    Dreamcast was like a 30 year old man with the mind of a toddler.

    Star Fox on the SNES was ahead of it's time.

    Stunt Race FX on the SNES is one of my favorite games of all times as well as Top Gear and Top Gear 2. Those 3 games influenced me into motorsports.

    Although Star Fox with the Super FX chip was ahead of its time it didnt reinvent gaming like the Dreamcast did.

    First console with online play. Completely ahead of its time. Sole reason we have Xbox live and PSN today. Nuff' said.

    Say that now, but back in yonder-years, it was the big dog. I mean, sure, E.T. was a horrible game, so where most games for the system, but hell, the very idea of it was amazing back then.

    Though I can't disagree with the CD-i, honestly, what where they thinking with that controller? My personal favorite for badness was the Jaguar, I mean, come on, the thing had 64bits, how could it be bad?

    Dreamcast was like a 30 year old man with the mind of a toddler.
    The Dreamcast is still a personal favorite of mine, and it really was an impressive system. Hell, the system still has games coming out for it believe it or not.

    But that song itself acknowledges its a cheat

    "Just because we use cheats..." gives credit to Konami.

    I think Palm using konami code for the biggest secret about the Pre was genius!
    ***I Twitter***

    Stop complaining & start doing ---> Leave feedback/suggestions for Palm here

    And thus they couldn't explain why the "select" is optional in Kontra

    Yea, not the Contra code it is Konami and actually predates Contra NES via Gradius. So as not to sound stuffy, I knew it as Contra Code for longest time until either Icons on G4 or some internet video game show pointed out its long and storied history.

    And to keep in tone with the social aspect of the thread; Im pretty much an NES baby being born in 89 to parents that were in love with Super Mario Bros 3. which I held onto until I got a SNES in 94. Ah, the good old days. The N64 was the first console I ever got within months of its release, since then Ive been a Day 1 kind of guy :-D
