I done did some standup comedies!

by Warren

And you can watch the trainwreck of missed opportunity and shame (not to mention vertical filming) here:

Doin’s a Transpirin’

by Warren

Rather than start with yet another apology for not writing more in the blog, here’s a quick summary of what I’ve been up to, followed by details after the jump.

1) writing a story for Seasons of War

2) making a new Bookshelf Doctors comic strip every week

3) trying my hand at standup comedy (!)

Real life (nerdy) superheroes

by Warren

Ok, these cats are pretty danged geeky, but how can you not like the enthused do-goodery of Shadow Hare? (Plus the cop cracking up at the 1:30 mark is pretty priceless).

Joey DeVilla gets sworn in at Microsoft Tech Days

by Warren

In addition to running around filming the day’s events at Microsoft Tech Days, I also had a chance to film a swearing in ceremony for Joey Devilla, who just finished his probationary period at Microsoft, and is now in his words a “Sith Lord.”

Stephen Fry wishes a happy 25th to free software

by Warren

Bon vivant and wit-slinger Stephen Fry isn’t just a first-rate writer and performer…he’s also a complete and total nerd, with a love for gadgetry and computers that knows no bounds. He’s just recorded a salute to free software and doffed his cap to the many and various people who have contributed to the free software movement.

Unfortunately, as with many things Linux/GNU/etc, free doesn’t mean “user friendly.” There’s no easy way to embed the video using the open source Flash encoder provided my the GNU nerds (or at least, they haven’t set u the video to do so), so I have to embed the Youtube version, seen below. If you want to see a much nicer looking version of the video, go here.

Doctor Who mashup madness!

by Warren

One of the worst things about Youtube is the sheer volume of “tribute” videos and other such poorly edited codswallop that gets in the way of searching for a clip of, say, Doctor Who. But amongst the junk there are a few gems, including this mashup of the interminable flight sequences from “Time Flight” with James Bond and the Death Star (amongst other wackiness):

Then there’s this bit of remixery which makes a complete hash of the Five Doctors in brilliant fashion:

Part 1:

and Part 2:

Just lovely.

Funny gamer videos that are funny and also funny

by Warren

My usual grab bag of indignant headline plucking and nerd rants seems to have flagged a little bit of late, so in order to remedy this crime, here’s a grab bag of awesome web videos aimed at gamers that bring the funny in a big way.

First up is “Hey Ash, Whatcha Playing“, which is super lo-fi and a barrel full of laughs.

Next is Zero Punctuation, which is some beautiful British sarcasm that rips the gaming industry and its many cliches to shreds…

and lastly, here’s a tribute to gratuitous headshots.

Captain’s directive: no more beans in the Enterprise replicators

Classic Trek and flatulence….a winning combo.
