A LETTER FROM JOSS WHEDON
At last the time has come to reveal to you our Master Plan. BEWARE! Those with weak hearts should log off lest they be terrified by the twisted genius of our schemes! Also pregnant women and the elderly should consider reading only certain sentences. Do not mix with other blogs. Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this blog. You must be this tall to read. ‘Kay?
I’m in a Geekdad mood, because I mentioned the site last night at fencing practice and Jeremy’s geek meter missed it.
I’ve had this little ditty for a week or so and I’ve been meaning to post it as well. I made our roleplaying group watch it last week and spend the rest of the night humming to myself.
Are the monsters themselves Kosher? Any article with a picture of a Jackalope is sure to get my attention.. and now I know that my fear of them being eaten to (recorded) extinction by hungry Jews is unfounded.
Went to the World Cafe Live in Philly last night for an awesome performance by Jonathan Coulton. I’m really glad that we got a chance to go and didn’t miss it. There’s something magical about the addition of a audience, the resonance of the room with live voices and instruments and the subtle changes of a live performer that really help the songs come alive.
There has been plenty of coverage about the death of Gary Gygax in the last few days.. a good number of the geeks I know have either posted about it directly, or linked to someone else’s post about it.
I’ve been meaning to write about Improv Everywhere for quite some time now, so I guess there is no better time than the present.
Improv Everywhere is, at its core, about having fun. We’re big believers in “organized fun”. In the process we bring excitement to otherwise unexciting locales and give strangers a story they can tell for the rest of their lives. We’re out to prove that a prank doesn’t have to involve humiliation or embarrassment; it can simply be about making someone laugh, smile, or stop to notice the world around them.
