Gamewave Commercial Parody


Terrific commercial parody from Jordan, Jesse and friends.

Some language may be NSFW. Depending on whether your workplace is vagina-friendly.

Someone just posted this commercial they found for George Plimpton's Video Falconry over in the forum. Absolutely amazing. If someone could find and port the game, though... that would be truly spectacular. As alluded to by Judge John Hodgman in episode 22 of the show.


New Grounds have found and ported George Plimpton's Video Falconry! And there is much rejoicing!

I joined Jordan, our friend Jim and some other folks to try out all three motion gaming systems for Slate V. I enjoyed the river game where I jumped up and down a lot. The video was directed by past JJGo guest Emily Calderone.

That's Gay - Video Games


A delightful explication of every gay thing in every video game ever (there aren't that many).

Everything by Everyone

| 1 comment

Last summer, Nathan Kuruna interviewed me for his documentary Everything By Everyone. It's about internet media, and particularly Newgrounds, a website which hosts independent flash games. As you might guess, he didn't ask me about flash games - he asked me about the future of media, and particularly independent media. It was a pleasure and an honor to be included in the project... and now he's got a trailer! Note the appearance by internet luminary Kevin "Sprinkles" Pereira.

Five Years with the Master of Pac-Man

| 1 comment

If you saw the fascinating documentary "King of Kong" last year, you know about Billy Mitchell, the flamboyant, strange, charming, rude master of the classic arcades. That film
grew from an unpublished article written by MaxFunPal Joshuah Bearman, whose chronicled Mitchell's saga in exhaustive detail -- so exhaustive, in fact, that the article almost ended up not getting published. Bearman, you see, didn't want to cut it in half for GQ or Maxim or whatever. Last month, though, it finally ran in Harper's, and Josh has provided us with the full article on his LA Weekly blog. Follow the link, read the article, become a more awesome person.
