There are many ways to get a job. You can reply to a posting. You can have a friend who knows a guy at the company get you an introduction. You can kick in the door and disarm the bomb under the boss’s desk and get hired on the spot with no qualifications whatsoever. (How I got this job.)
Or, you can make a video.

We’ve asked some hard questions about the shootings in Oslo.
Apparently, according to clinical psychologist Christopher Ferguson, we weren’t asking the right ones. The real one we should be asking is apparently “is blaming the shooting on video games racist?” Continue reading “Blaming Shootings on Video Games is….Racist?” »

Before we begin ladies and gentlemen, I must apologize. For I am about to show you a man dressed as a Pikachu.
Meet the gang from Random Encounters, consisting of AJ Pinkerton, Peter Srinivasan and their crazy friends. What they do probably wouldn’t be considered especially hard.

HA! Called it! Someone at the White House HAS spent time on 4Chan. (five years ago, maybe). Gizmodo’s reporting possibly the greatest response anyone’s ever had to calling politics ‘boring.’ When @wiggsd complained “This WH correspondence briefing isn’t nearly as entertaining as yesterday’s,” on twitter, someone at the White House got cheeky and did the only thing they could do. They sent him the following video. Continue reading “Obama IS a troll! Or, at least, whoever runs @whitehouse” »

Brian Barrett over at Gizmodo wrote a post talking about the nature of “free” content on the internet, and how we should get used to the notion of subscribing and paying for things like the New York Times, TV Shows, and other things we’re used to getting for either free or with the basic cover charge that is internet access. I recommend you read it, mainly for his argument that the internet as we knew it Continue reading “Sorry Gizmodo, The Internet Did Not Lie to Us” »

So remember that Supreme Court Case where Gaming won and we were all happy because Gaming was declared protected speech? Well it seems the guys who were fighting for us pulled a kind of…not cool move.
The ESA’s demanding California pay back all the legal fees they were forced to pay to what amounted to several court cases–where they won at each level. To those of you who don’t live in California, the state is dead broke, and demanding $1.1 Million isn’t going to Continue reading “ESA Loses Cool Points: Demands California Pony up for Legal Fees” »
