Steve Burns makes me feel pretty, and he’ll do the same for you.

My friend Nik sent me the link to this poem, and I have to agree with that poster, in that I love it. How eloquently elaborated.

The original World of Warcraft Switch video (a la Apple’s ads) was cute, but I didn’t find it as funny as some people did. The sequel is out and it’s a lot funnier. Plus an undead named Atkins? Haw. (links courtesy o’ my guild)

Chewbacca’s weblog.

So here’s what I want to know: How did he get the name Chewbacca when no one on his planet could say it?

Dammit, Nick. Anyway, funny and funny-because-it’s-true story from Nick about the guys on the N-Judah.

You were on my N-line train. You are on the beach in San Francisco. You’re probably about to go LARP in the park. Cape guy, you’re rockin’ it pretty hard, and I dig that. I do.

But hat guy, you add a real twist to this. See, about 100 feet away, someone happens to be filming a scene. And there are actors dancing around. So I made this connection — film, sand, man in wide-brimmed hat and agrarian dress…

Manos: The Hands of Fate.

Ballantine’s Finest P3, apparently.

Tyme relates to us her geek girl woes and how being the one in the relationship who wants to get their geek on, or just have time for themselves, goes both ways.

Boyfriend: It should be assumed I was going to hang out with the guys…
Tyme: Oh sorry, you should have assumed I wasn’t going to sit at home pining over you. I’ll call you though…

Awesome. This is part of why I don’t mind being single. I don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do as it is.

An off-hand comment and suddenly me and Jonas are working on another weblog. It’s not ready for prime time and I guess we’re keeping it under the radar for the time being (or just being lazy and not pimping it out to the appropriate channels), but we both experiment on/with World of Warcraft so it was probably inevitable.

If I know you and you’re interested in writing for WoWzers, let me know. I’ve signed on a couple writers and I’m not adverse to more. There’s no weekly quota or anything, we just figured a group weblog would be fun.

You mean Wikipedia isn’t invulnerable? Oh, say it ain’t so.

A man who posted false information on an online encyclopedia linking a prominent journalist to the Kennedy assassinations says he was playing a trick on a co-worker.

Yeah, a trick played out in front of millions of potential readers. Oops.

That was bad.

GET being Geek Entertainment Television, a new vlog* from Irina and Eddie where they interview people “from inside the bubble.” Along the lines of supr.c.ilio.us (the co-authors of which were the first two to be interviewed), it’s not taking all the Web 2.0 hype seriously and encourages the same. That, and they’ll follow any lead. Personally, I’m waiting for them to follow up on my assertation that the Internet is all a giant experiment being performed by the Venusians.

The latest clip is the first released that has me behind the camera. Videolog more: yes, please.
