Doing It Twice & Robot Rights

got a face like charles bronson, straight outta green bay wisconsin

We made it to Boing Boing. So sweet. http://www.boingboing.net/2007/12/21/nativity-scene-larp.html

Thanks to Scott Beale at Laughing Squid for posting about us and then Xeni for throwing it up on Boing Boing. Am I a nerd for being psyched about Xeni Jardin making a blog post of something I did?

Also, there have been several Scott's who have been posting about us on their blogs. I wonder if there's any correlation between being a Scott and posting things on the internet or being a Scott and enjoying anime and D&D jokes. I'm gonna go make a flow chart and try to wrap my head around this.

Did Laura let you leave the house like that?

Man, the internet just keeps on amazing me. First that sneezing panda video and now my new short, IM IN UR MANGER KILLING UR SAVIOR, surpasses the 100,000 views mark on the ol' YouTube. And For Tax Reasons is also ranked #8 Most Subscribed Directors for this week. I think we owe this revived surge to the web comic VG Cats who linked us up recently. Thanks a lot Scott Ramsoomair.

Man, next time I introduce myself at a party I'll have to mention my YouTube accolades. That's GOTTA get me some respect. Now I just have to get invited to some parties. What use are sweaters if you never get invited to holiday parties? No use, that's what. And my Scholastic 101 Bug Jokes are going completely unused. Hey, why are spiders so good at baseball? Anyone, anyone?

In other news, I finished a black and white cut of the Ben Weasel music video for "Got My Number". Here's some stills:


It's not going to stay black and white, but I like the sharp contrast between the two. I might keep some of those hard black backgrounds and shadows and such in there. I dunno, I want to go for a Jaime Hernandez type thing.

Here's one of the shots. I think it's the one with the most drawings in it. Meh.

Until next time.

CALL MARGE RE: HORROR

Oh man. Some angry dude posted a video response to my new short IM IN UR MANGER KILLING UR SAVIOR. I hate to say it, but I think he's right. . . about everything.



Man, criticism is rough. I'm gonna go eat my feelings.

KTHX/EPIC POST

Just want to say thanks to everyone who helped me and Matt in making IN UR MANGER KILLING UR SAVIOR, to EVERYONE who linked it around and to the blogs/sites who posted about us. Particularly Jerry Beck at Cartoon Brew and Scott Green at Ain't It Cool News, but also my pals, Raven Baker at Soft Graffiti and the illustrious Will Hines. And whoever threw it up on Fark, Milk & Cookies, and I Am Bored.

After less than a week we had more YouTube views than my previous short "She She She She's A Bombshell" which had been up for over a year, and as of this post we're up to 38,896 views.

So thanks everyone!

So right now there's an epic thread debate on our YouTube comments section about whether or not a Lawful Evil Paladin can exist. If you have the means, I do suggest you join it.

Otherwise we've been getting some good feedback on it- from all corners of the web. Here's what folks are saying:

"I was expecting a lolcat."

"Meh. No reason for that to be over six minutes."

"Heed this warning, God is not mocked. Causing others to stumble bears a wicked price. You should not poke fun at the Nativity. It's not funny at all"

" I don't know, call me a purist, but I don't think this anime was as good as the manga."

" I particularly like the shield that lets baby jesus zap people with lightening bolts :) Je-Zeus!"

and one of my favs

"Dude, Jesus would have owned face with a 20 AC shield. I mean, he already passively takes half damage and always makes his saving rolls."


Call me crazy, but I have a feeling some of the magi are going to make their own voices heard on the subject.

PS- the pics I posted here are huge because I promised Tom I'd give him a desktop sized image a while back.
