Gamer Grub with Jordan on The Grid


In case you've been living UNDER A ROCK, I've been hosting an IFC show called The Grid, and Jordan has been a regular contributor. Above, one of his great segments, on a very sad product called Gamer Grub.

Watch! Thursdays, 7:45 PM Eastern / 4:45 Pacific.

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grew from an unpublished article written by MaxFunPal Joshuah Bearman, whose chronicled Mitchell's saga in exhaustive detail -- so exhaustive, in fact, that the article almost ended up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.

Beautiful Katamari!

| 1 comment

Jordan discovered that the second sequel to the greatest video game ever, Katamari Damacy, is on it's way. The game will be called Beautiful Katamari Damacy, and apparently the scale of the game will be bigger than ever -- featuring even rolls across the globe.

If this means nothing to you, buy a Playstation 2, then buy Katamari Damacy. I don't care if you like video games or hate them, buying Katamari is a decision that will change your life.
