The Internet Is For Porn (& other stuff too)

I had been planning to do a post about my favorite vlogs for a while, but now that I'm getting around to it, I realized I only have 2. So I'll just pepper them in among some of my other favorite stuff I found floating around the internet today.

(Things are MASSIVELY slow at work. And, yes, mom, I am writing, I actually have a rewrite of a 1st draft of my competition script in the works so don't get your panties in a knot. I'll get it out to anyone who wants to read it tonight.)

Today's Happy Thoughts
  • I have a new live recording of Schocholautte and you don't! Well, it's not so much that you don't that makes me happy, as much as it is that I do. It's great. I am also psyched for the 3, count 'em 3, super shows lined up for this weekend. For which we are going to have many guests. Super exciting band stuff!
  • OMG you guys! TWOP has totally changed their layout and it's freaking me OUT. Television Without Pity is a website that recaps tv shows (and now apparently, movies ?!?!?) and they have lots of funny writers and I have been following them for ages. They were recently bought by Bravo and a lot of changes have been made. Check 'em out, you're sure to find something there you like. Plus, bonus for you, the layout changes won't freak you out if you've never been there before. (NOTE: give them a little while before you go clicking, apparently the new layout is making them a little buggy.)
  • While at TWOP, check out The Week Without Pity, one of my favorite vlogs. It outlines the best, worst, and guilty pleasurest shows of the week, all in about 4 minutes. The dry deadpan humor of djb, the vlogger, is pretty fantastic and he puts together funny images to go with them. It comes out every Friday. Check it out!
  • There was a new Zero Punctuation up today. ZP is my other favorite vlog, brought to me by Kris, which will be obvious when you go check it out. Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw "is a British-born, currently Australian-based wirter and gamer with a sweet hat and a chip on his shoulder" who does video game reviews for Escapist Magazine. He talks really fast (hence the title) and is hilarious, even if you know nothing about games. The visual aids in the videos help you get the jokes and his British accent and humor make  you laugh. Check out the archives and then anxiously await a new one every Wednesday.
  • Improv Everywhere is just so cool. I know you probably saw their frozen Grand Central stunt or something else online. You should check out all their missions. I highly recommend Best Game Ever.
  • Torso Pants are just like t-shirts! 
  • I really hope this guy gets somewhere with his career because he's a self-made star and really talented and just a genuinely nice guy.
