Rainbow Road reference in PXZ
#1
Xiaomu references Mario Kart's Rainbow Road near the end of the Maidens of the Battlefield chapter when the characters are talking about a rainbow you can walk on.

Rainbow Road on Mario Wiki, if you don't know what that's about: http://www.mariowiki.com/Rainbow_Road

I don't see how this is a reference to Rainbow Road?

I dunno, it seems like a reference to me, when Xiaomu mentions you could "bust out a go-kart if you wanted". It's an obscure thing to say about a rainbow without it referencing a karting based game.

On our friend's settee, she told me that she really liked me
And I said, "Cool... the feeling's mutual"
We played old 45's, and said it's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said, "True, it's not unusual" - then privately we danced
We couldn't seem to keep our balance... A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor, and we sang a song that I can't sing anymore
And then we kissed, and fell unconscious...
I woke up the next day, all alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom...
But all I found was her, wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend

My mistake, I thought he was talking about text from another character.

I'd rather you link to the exact moment the reference occurs when posting a timestamp. It removes any chance of mix-ups.

Okay I just added an image. It's the same one I provided as an attachment.

The reason I linked straight to the beginning of the discussion is so that the whole deal with the walkable rainbow would be explained.
