Tumbler Settings Not Working

Hi, everyone. I sometimes alter the code for my tumblr theme for design and functionality, and this time I added the following code:

function Pulsate(){
$("p").animate({colo r: "red"}, 1000);
$("p").animate({colo r: "#000"}, 1000);
var intervalKey = setInterval(Pulsate, 60);

What this is supposed to do is turn the color of a paragraph red, then black. The 'setInterval' is supposed to keep the paragraph alternating between red and black creating a kind of pulsating effect.

The code works, however when I applied it to my tumblr theme, I got an 'Invalid HTML' on the top right where it should say 'Preview Code' or something like that.

Now the problem is when I open the 'Edit HTML' section of my theme, the page hangs and I have to eventually kill the page as it never loads.(I'm using Google Chrome, the same happens in all other browsers such as Firefox).

I believe the problem is the 'setInterval'; it might be a running loop or something, I'm not certain.

The problem now is that I can't get into the HTML of my theme, so I'm wondering if there's a solution to this, how can I get back into code?

Note: I've tried disabling javascript on Chrome since it's the javascript that's running and making everything hang.
