Today, Lindsay Small-Butera, co-creator of Baman Piderman, posted a complaint on her Tumblr about a site called Videohall that downloaded her work from YouTube and posted it to the Videohall Tumblr without including a source. I have a few thoughts about the whole thing.

How do I use camera?
Well at least sheís dedicated.
Beard is here to stay, so I needed to update my photo.
The visuals are awesome, but I don't like the words in the song and the sfx sound horrible (especially the wolves).
I agree. Animation is really Monty Oumís forte. He did the animation and choreography for my favorite Red vs. Blue episode (as well as many others):
(You can find other episodes at roosterteeth.com)
But youíre right, someone really needs to help him out to make the other stuff production quality. Also, while is choreography is quite stylish, I think he might need to be reigned in a little.
Confession: Whenever I see #tw I read it as ďTwitter WarningĒ
Just asked out the girl who works at Taco Bell. She responded by saying no because Dante is actually her boyfriend, like I know who that is (maybe she means Devil May Cry? Yeah, I guess Iíd choose him over me, too (I should buy a red trenchcoat)).
(Dante looks much cooler than I do)
I guess I can understand why people feel the need to give a reason why they wonít date you, but to me itís not really necessary. I mean the end result is the same and itís not like theyíre giving you constructive criticism.
I mean, Iím asking you out because I think youíre cool; I trust your opinion on whether you like me or not. No excuse is required. Normally, I donít like to bother people at work anyway, but this girl talks to me every time I go there (which is a lot).
Anyway, Iím still dateless and I will in no way be receiving a discount on tacos.
Guys, donít freak out just yet. Look how similar they look. Looks like we lost Indiana though.

Aaaaaagh. The K shortcut doesnít work anymore on tumblr it goes up slowly instead of by post. I am so tired of this shit.

Hey I made a solo podcast! Also known as a lonley-cast, a sad-cast, or a no-friends-cast! It's a show where I rant and complain about things. I probably complained about you or something you did! So go ahead and listen.

I was thinking of buying a monkey, a baby capuchin to be precise, but then I saw this:
I will not be buying a capuchin for a while (but I really want one, damnit).
Spoilers for the new TMNT series on nick. You can watch the first episode here then come back and read!
This show is amazing! I could tell immediately from the physical character design that this was going to be a character driven show with less of a ďfocused on a ridiculous plotĒ feel. The characters LOOK different, which seems like an obvious choice, but itís never been done before.
There were two moments which told me this show was going to be amazing. First, when Leonardo starts quoting the TV about leadership. It really makes him a young, hopeful character, instead of the brooding leader we see in the Jim Henson-style movies. He was interesting! For the first time I cared about Leo because he showed a bit of himself that wasnít ďOh noo, I failed at being a leader let me cry.Ē Even though, Iím sure that will be in there because itís important to his character, itís good to see thereís more.
The second moment was when Donatello fell in love with April at first sight. In the Jim Henson movies, itís Michelangelo whoís in love (of course they all love April, but Mikey gets to do the goofy lovey dovey things). But Michelangelo is already interesting. And it makes more sense for Donny to love her somehow, though I canít explain it.
All of the turtles have character now. Even Splinter is more relatable! I canít wait until there are more episodes.
Anyone who doesnít like Elementary can suck it.

I just won Cards Against Humanity forever.
I laughed until I cried
Oh my god that's oh my god
I hate this game. They were playing it in anime club (I also hate everyone in anime club).
It all started when one of the openly gay members of anime club ran into a room saying, ďWho wants to go to hell? Weíre all going to be racist and sexist!Ē I mention his sexuality only because 1.) he did and 2.) the irony of his insensitivity. He cleared off a table and they all began to play.
I donít have any friends in anime club (or anywhere else, really), so I sat nearby and watched. Eight white kids and one black kid circled around and started passing our cards. ďItís okay to send the racist cards to him,Ē the leader, who also claims to be a stand up comedian, said. ďHeís the only black guy here so itís not racist.Ē
To this I said, ďWait, doesnít that make it more racist?Ē
ďThatís what makes it funny!Ē the black guy exclaimed.
I laughed uneasily. What was I going to say to that? Iím a white dude, I canít define the limits of racism if a person of color speaks up. Right?
The game begins. The overly specific nature of the cards makes everything ďfunny.Ē With each reveal, the crowd laughed while I sat stone-faced, feeling nothing but shame. Later, when talking this over with my friend, Nick, he would explain it like this, ĒApples to Apples is marginally interesting because you think youíre being dirty when the game doesnít support it. Youíre perverting something pure.Ē
ďPureĒ is certainly no way to describe Cards Against Humanity. Here are some of the cards.
As you can see, everything there is ďfunnyĒ as a non-sequitur. So when the category card ďWhy am I sticky?Ē comes up, you can throw in ďJerking off in a pool of childrenís tears.Ē Or even something as simple as ďThe Jews.Ē will garner a laugh.
The point is, in this game you are not interesting. Your friends are not interesting. The game has already done all the heavy lifting for you. When you pick up a card that says ďPac-Man uncontrollably guzzling cumĒ the joke is already made. And itís not fucking funny.
A review by Kyle Carpenter, though unfortunately somewhat positive, included this line, ďAt its core, CAH is Apples to Apples, but with a change in design that solves one of that game's fundamental problems: what if you play with boring people?Ē
Haircut. I look like an anime character.
In Advanced Journalism weíre doing a project on student debt, and I was thinking of slipping one of these in somewhere.
Working on pixel art today. Man, I could use some tacos after all this.
Does anyone know what these stick pusher things are called? I want to dress up in a Napoleon costume and push troops around a giant Risk board-table, but how can I do that without buying this stick thing?
Of course, this isn't true. The iPhone5 might be faster, with a better camera, lighter, a more beautiful design ‚Ä¶ but none of these things will really make your life that much better. Will it save you a few seconds a day in doing the tasks you normally do? Sure. Will your photos be nicer? Yeah. But putting aside the fantasy, how much will your life really be different?
Think of life before the iPhone existed. We used to be able to work without them. We walked around without checking email or Twitter or our stocks, but ‚Ä¶ we somehow survived. It was possible to wait a few minutes or an hour until we got home or to work. We maybe couldn't look restaurants up as easily, but we still found food, miraculously.
Life might have been different, but having this device didn't change the basic fundamental nature of our lives. The fantasy hasn't come true.

Iím going to give Lena Dunhamís Girls some credit.
Iíll give it 1/2 credit. The other half is trite garbage.
Blaine Brown (2012)
Hahaha. Guys, I just realized I posted a thing that had a picture of this bed:
And I was like, this bed is cool, but I would be worried about hitting my head during sex. Well I just started watching Girls and I didnít know that this is the exact bed from that show and that someone did indeed hit their head.
I just wanted you to know that Iím not super into Girls, Iím into interior design. No wait that sounds bad. Maybe Iíll just add that Iím straight, in case anyone was wondering.

Look guys, I get that we have to vote for Barack Obama because Romney sucks regarding human rights, but can we be a little less excited that the best choice for president our country has is a man who led the assassination of Osama Bin Laden and expanded Guantanamo when he promised to close it.
From now on, Iím capitalizing the ďeĒ in Ebooks, I donít give a fuck.
Thanks for your responses, guys. I donít know how to reply to a reply, so I just made a picture (You need some sort of extension, donít you?).
@mermaid-magick: Thank you! Iím glad Iím not the only one who often sees religious influence in things (and rejects that influence!). This totally makes sense as an explanation. Be a good kid and you get presents. Be a good person and you get heaven. No good, man.
@curiouslyajar: I agree that there is something to be said about the gift giving idea of Christmas. I do like that time of year! Everyone is happy and being nice to each other. In some ways it brings out the best in people (in other ways it does not (read: Black Friday trampling)).
I think kids could get behind giving and receiving gifts around Christmas time free of religious and secular fantasy.
ďLook, Son or Daughter, however you want to identify, we exchange gifts around Christmas time because itís fun and winter is fucking cold. Now grab me a candy cane!Ē
I was just reading this and it was a beautiful story of kindness and video games (two very important things). But I donít really like the idea that itís a given that kids believing in Santa is good. Not because I want kids to be jaded like me or not have innocence and joy, but because of the damage that could be done in learning heís not real.
Santa Claus is not like a dog that you have for a while and dies, but you still know you loved him and had good times while he was there. Thatís a good lesson for kids (which is why the ďRover went to live on a farmĒ stuff is dumb. Learning about death is important!). Santa is just a lie. When you understand he doesnít exist you feel cheated. Like all of your memories were false.
I mean, maybe itís a lesson about not believing everything people say or something, but thatís a pretty fucking horrific way to teach that lesson.
Two friends and I just beat Minecraft by defeating the Ender Dragon. These are my final stats. The game file has been deleted, never to be played again.
Jeff and Casey Show 127, 36:55
Casey: Well hereís the thing right. I donít want to say, just blanket, that if you accept ads in video games that you are a terrible human being. Not a terrible game developer but actually you are a bad human being at your core.. but thatís actually true.
Jeff: But itís true.
Casey: Thatís true, yeah. I mean the bottom line is that like advertising absolutely destroys media.
Casey: It totally does.
Jeff: It is a corrosive influence
Casey: If you pick up a magazine today and try to find the table of contents.. Twenty minutes later tell me that ads are not a terrible influence on media. Right? Try to watch a fucking TV show.. Right? Tell me itís not terrible.. Right?
Jeff: Well even aside from being annoyed by it. It seems like itís a free thing. Itís not.
Casey: Itís not free.
Jeff: We are paying for that in deep and important ways with our children.. with ourselves.. so yeah.
Casey: Absolutely. Well hereís the thing right. I mean not to.. this is obviously Sut Jhallyís thing. Right? And you can go listen to him say it way better than I can say it. But like, the whole point in advertising is thereís money changing hands. Okay. So look at something like a free service, like Television.
Casey: I have a free service. It costs money. It costs a lot of money to produce Lost. Two million dollars an episode or something. So you are getting. They are giving you a two million dollar episode for free.. right? Divided by the viewership youíre getting some money. Youíre getting fifty cents. Okay? Theyíre just fucking giving you fifty cents. Alright? So what are you giving them in exchange? Right? What are you giving them in exchange? Itís not nothing! If you are sitting there thinking that somehow itís nothing. That they are just giving you fifty cents because they love you, and they think youíre fabulous. And that all they want to do is shower you with cash.. then youíre an idiot! Iím sorry. Right? Business doesnít operate that way. Ads arenít these things that just, ďOh thereís just some stuff that I ignore and they donít affect me.Ē Right? Itís like no they do!
My sister and I made a cake from scratch today with just ingredients we had around the house. The cake part was fine, we had all the ingredients for that, but as you can see the icing didnít turn out so well (visually, that is. It tasted amazing!).
I followed this recipe: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Simple-Five-Minute-Frosting
If you choose to do that DO NOT add 1/4 cup milk (Iím just seeing now that there was a 1 tbsp option (my sister read the instructions, not me. Haha)). It will make it all liquidy. Once that happened I just kept adding the other ingredients to lessen the milkís effect (namely butter and sugar). Eventually we gave up and my sister iced it the way it was. By now itís all soaked into the cake and itís kind of pound cake-y.
It turned out great!
I want to make a balloon animal of a person where the butt is the opening of the balloon and then I want to set a camera to record and slightly open the butt of the balloon to let the air out slowly. The video will be titled ďFarting My Life Away.Ē
I loved Dark Knight Rises, but Inception might still be better. At the very least Ellen Page shouldíve been Batman.
Batman The Dark Knight Rises was great. Perfect end to the trilogy.
New vegetarian option at taco bell: Black Bean Burrito.
I did my research, and itís meat free, but check this out in the ingredients:
Water, Black Beans, Canola Oil, Onion, Vegetarian Chicken Flavor (Filtered Water, Yeast Extract, Dextrose, Salt, Corn Starch, Corn Oil, Flavoring, Onion Powder, Garlic and Turmeric), Granulated Garlic, Granulated Onion, Salt, Chili Powder [Chili Peppers, Spices, Garlic and Silicon Dioxide (Free Flow Agent)], Modified Corn Starch, Chili Powder (A blend of Chili peppers with not more than 2% silicon dioxide added to prevent caking).
Vegetarian Chicken Flavor? Ramen needs to get on this.
Iím going dark on Tumblr until Iíve seen Batman. Later.
I agree with this opinion piece from the LA Times.
Jeff Winger (Community S01E03)
Guys, I donít have any money. If I did I would give at least $15 to the Penny Arcade kickstarter.
The Penny Arcade kickstarter has been put in place to generate Penny Arcadeís normal revenue. Note that this is not extra money, their goals are what Penny Arcade viewers already pay in a year through advertising. Itís not asking too much, itís just exposing the truth.
The truth is tons of money is made through advertising. I mean, look at Google. Do you consciously give money to Google each year? No, Google gets its money through advertising and a little thing we like to call behavior mod. You can look this up if you want more information. Basically advertising gets you to buy things you may not want by making you think you want it.
Iíve criticized Kickstarter in the past. Iíve seen people ask for $10,000 to start a podcast and thatís kind of absurd. But now I see that itís the way the world should be. People who want something pay for it. Thereís no middle man. If you want a video game made, you make it and give it to people. You donít need a publisher that might influence your game design.
Many of you who know me might find it strange that I support a PA Kickstarter since I donít really support anything Penny Arcade does. I donít like the comic, Iím not a fan of Childís Play, and I donít go to PAX (yet). But I do support an internet free of advertising. Penny Arcade is a juggernaut and if they do something, and itís successful, other people will try it.
Please, if you have a chance, give a few dollars to Penny Arcade. Tell the world weíre tired of commercials, banner ads, and altered search results. Demand a pure internet, filled only with content.
This is one of those situations where I post something online because I think itís so obvious and everyone will agree with me and we can all be friends.
Instead no one agrees with me and I am once again faced with the realization that I am better than everyone else.
What the hell, Gravity Falls? I donít even really know who Larry King is, and Iím 23! This is no place for that kind of dumb old humor!
So I did a cost-benefit analysis for cell phone plans and calculated a 2 year total for a family like mine:
You can see the stats in the image above or check out the Google doc to see the formulas involved.
Basically I went through the online plan order form. Picked out what was necessary and wrote down the result. The lower area is made up of getting the cheapest android or windows 7 phone that I could stand to use if Iím not getting an iPhone.
Straight Talk: You may notice in the straight talk category the phones are significantly more expensive. Thatís because Straight Talk is a no-contract provider. This intrigues me! It feels more like buying a computer and then paying for service, because Straight Talk does not provide the phones. I could buy 4 iPhones for the ridiculous price of $2599.96 but I could stop paying for phone service anytime, I would have unlimited talk, text, and data, and switch phones at will. As you can see, the Straight Talk plan is not that far from standard providers in price, which shows you just how carefully they set their price points.
This is how I internet (my computer is hooked up to my flatscreen tv).
For those of you who didnít know, I was the cutest kid ever.

Donít take this as a self-deprecating post. I think Iím great. I love all of these things about me. I mean, my penis already sticks to me on hot summer days. If it was any bigger.. man that would be uncomfortable.
The point of this post is that I just find it incredibly unlikely that anyone could be happy with me. If you think you can deal with all of these things, you should message me and weíll figure out a way in which I wouldnít like you or you wouldnít like me.
My mother uses my sisterís ring dance picture as her profile photo. Itís okay to use a cartoon character, or a celebrity as your profile pic and no one will get confused (although I donít like that either, I think you should use your face), but you canít just use some other person. Itís weird.
So here is a collection of heads that Iíve modeled. I made bodies too but theyíre not super interesting. Iíve been following tutorials here and here (which is why you can see my first face is similar to ward7299ís.
The latest ones are my best stab at a female face. I gave the lady lips where the men have none and I feel a little bad about this. When I write I try to follow the rule of ďwrite a person, not a gender stereotypeĒ but none of my faces looked like I wanted until I did it this way.
The two tan heads are me trying to get toon shading to look right (I could not get it to work).
Anyway, Iím taking a break from that and moving on to hardcore writing so that I can have something to test animate! So.. expect that soon.

Guys, I am syncing my old iPod with new podcasts for the drive to Richmond because my phoneís acting up and I just remembered: iTunes sucks!
I have to go out and buy a blazer tomorrow. And some pantsÖ What Iím saying is, Iím woefully unprepared for a formal occasion.
The other day, in a message chain with this girl, I joked about hating librarians because they tell me to shush (I know, Iím not good at talking to girls). I prefaced that statement by saying that Iím a pretty liberal person. Here is the quote:
ďI have to say, generally Iím pretty liberal. Iím pro-gay rights, pro-feminism, and I hate racists. But I allow myself one thing to despise, and thatís librarians. Maybe youíll be a cool librarian, I donít know! Librarians are just always telling me to shush.Ē
She responded with this:
ďIím gonna stop you right there.
ďI believe in sexism a little. In the sense that women should stay home to clean, cook, and take care of the children. I am also a little prejudice. Not like Hitler status, but I make jokes about races all the time, and I halfway mean them. Donít get me wrong, I make fun of my race too. But I mean it more about the others. I just hate the general population on earth.
ďAnd librarians hush people because libraries are supposed to be quiet, so if youíre being shushed, its your own fault.Ē
Not only did she totally miss my awesome joke, she said some unbelievable things! I sent her the nicest possible message in return:
ďThank you for your honesty and your message, but I really donít think we would work out well together. I actually find the things youíre saying quite offensive. Good luck.Ē
Even though I was seething, how can I, a man, tell a woman how feminist she should be? I shouldnít even be put in this situation. Not to mention admitting that sheís racistÖ
I once thought I was pretty desperate. Usually when I filled out an OKC profile question I would mark it as ďunimportantĒ for her. I donít have a clear vision of the kind of girl I want to date. Iíd like to be surprised! But apparently I need to find some questions about sexism and race and mark those as mandatory.
Working on a more detailed model of a face. I like the way it looks but this is hard! I think I will switch back to a simpler drawn on cartoon face (Wind Waker style) for production. I am going to finish this face though, and learn some mouth animation in the process.
Throwing Shade is a comedy podcast that considers issues relating to women and gays. Itís very funny, but also makes me rage when I hear of whatís happening to the rights of women and gays out in the world. Give it a listen!
Hey guys, how about an earring that is a bluetooth thingy. As long as it looked like metal and not like current bluetooth things I would get one. It might need to be an industrial. I would need it to control my Iron Man suit.

what the fuck
My name is Amy I'm nearly 15 years old and I'm literally gaming 24/7. I play Xbox, Ps3, Wii, PC games, anything really. At the moment I'm currently leveling up on WoW or trying to get a better ending to Mass effect 3 and no I don't play CoD.
Let me address this.
It is no longer that weird for girls to play video games. This is great, and I believe Amy when she says she plays lots of different games. However the two she specified, Wow and Mass Effect, are, in my experience, most popular for girls. Thereís a good reason for this: Wow is one of the most popular games in the world for all people, and Mass Effect has a compelling female narrative.
However, these games are easy. There is very little challenge in Wow (which is fine; the focus in that game is teamwork, not personal achievement) and Mass Effect is dialog trees with some mild third person shooting.
Iím not trying to disparage these games as experiences, but I would like to see girls more involved in games that are truly challenging, since I personally find that to be one of the most important aspects of a good video game. Whenever I ask girls what games they like (you can tell Iím good at getting dates) they invariably say Wow and ME. Narrative and socializing are interesting aspects of these games, but I want to meet girls who love the challenge of Catherine, the mind bending of Braid, and the soul crushing of Dark Souls.
I was hoping to transition from my Android (which is pretty decent (myTouch 4g (non-slide))) this winter to an iPhone, but now that I rewatched Iron Man 1 & 2 and saw Avengers, I want to be more like Tony Stark. I think Iron Man would have an android, donít you?
P.S. That transparent glass phone Tony Stark has is bullshit. Whereís the circuitboard? The battery? I mean, I love some of the tech he has, like the 3d model display and the transparent computer monitors are possible, but the phone needs circuitry and power!
By the way, Avengers was great. Canít wait to see it again. This is coming from a guy who hates most everything (especially movie theaters).

and then send me a message.
Today at the store I saw a box of Oreos on the shelf that had been opened and some of the cookies eaten. I immediately thought ďHeh, jokeís on them. These are only Single Stuf.Ē
Well, it takes two parents to make a child.. clearly one was fire and one was earth (I would assume Bolin takes more after his mother (he's so sweet)). I think we will also see Aang's other children having different elements (and it's not like there's an avatar gene).
Mako's red scarf is from his father so I'm inclined to agree that he's the one from the fire nation, but it might never be confirmed whether or not they were actually benders :x also info on Aang's other kids are already out
- Kya is a waterbender and I believe she lives in the NWT
- Bumi is a nonbender
- Tenzin is an airbender (obviously)
ugh I know too much
Interesting! Do you think Bumi will be a chi puncher person or more like a warrior person (like Sokkaís swordmaster)?
Ah gotcha, I've only seen up to Episode 3 so I will just wait until the next episode is available and learn all about it :3
the next episode is availableeee
also they haven't covered this topic at all in Korra so far nor do I think they will bother to :3

I did not find anything enjoyable in The Big Lebowski.
Thorís Hammer makes an excellent bookend. I highly recommend it!
- Get Chrome or Firefox
- Install AdBlock
- Problem solved!
So hey did any of you stop to think that the incredibly generous server space we use for pictures and audio might cost money?
Yeah, honestly I'm surprised Tumblr went this long without ads. Everyone complains about down time and such, money generation will probably help that.
Itís too bad they couldnít come up with a better monetizing solution. Unfortunately a significant portion of the internet is made up of children and teenagers who do not have access to money, otherwise we could have good pay for services without ads as an option (like Netflix). I enjoy the iPhone model, where there are free apps with ads and ad-free versions for $1-$5. I always pay for the regular version, but kids cannot. I wish I could pay for everything to not have ads.
Damnit. My phone will not scan this. Iíll have to recreate it in paint. fez
What the hell was in that text?
Okay, the writer of Game of Thrones has a real problem. That is just too much incest.
I cannot feel the splinter in my finger anymore. Itís too deep. It is a part of me now.
ďInner thoughtsĒ is a dumb phrase. What are ďouter thoughtsĒ like?
Who wants to play draw something with me? user: blaineallenbrown
I shouldnít have watched Game of Thrones season two premiere. I canít wait for week to week! This will kill me.
Man, I really want some Airbender Tattoos now.
I listed Spirit Tracks as my 10th favorite game the other day, but now Iím not so sure. For one, there were a lot of bullshit parts in the game where you were playing chicken with trains. On the other hand, Zelda was actually really cool in this game and the stealth was some of the most interesting single player cooperative play Iíve seen. It resonates with a game idea I had a while ago where you would control two characters with one controller (one analog stick per).
However, when I really think about it, I have more fond memories of Super Mario 3D Land. Donít get me wrong, the majority of that game sucks. The levels are so boring and easy, but it never really slows you down. You beat the main game and when the special area opens upÖ thereís still a lot of boring levels. But some of the levels are amazing. There are Shadow Mario levels where he follows you, and if he touches you, you die (or shrink). There are levels in which you need to collect clocks to extend your time, because they only give you like 30 seconds to complete the level at the start. And there are levels in which you need to kill enemies to gain time. And then, there are levels that combine all of the above. This is the greatest Mario experience you can have. And probably the greatest platforming experience you can have.
Shadow Mario (or is it Cosmic Mario? Weíre not in space anymore) acts as a wall of death in a polygonal 3d world (I donít care about stereoscopic 3d). He matches your movements a step behind you and forces you to maneuver around him or, even better, to always move forward. Never look back. Whenever youíre forced (or just have the balls) to try a wall jump or a side jump youíre meeting possible death head-on, scoffing at her inability to grasp you.
In the 30 second levels, death is constantly at your door. The grabbing clocks mode is okay, but I prefer the enemy clocks. Itís like youíve been poisoned, and the only thing to keep death at bay is sacrifice.
Anyway, Iím pretty certain that spot number 10 will be Mario 3d Land, but I have to think this through some more.
Before dying, I managed to kill five hundred fourteen of the alien freaks who killed everybody else. ZGGRT.com
You guys, I finally got to the end of the universe in ZiGGURAT! Itís so lonely, but I canít think about that now. I have to survive.
Never. Stop. Shooting.
See the gap in my teeth above? It is perfect for keeping my mouth closed and licking lollipops at the same time.
My name is Blaine. I am a 23 year old Creative Writing major at ODU. I do not drink or drug. I desperately want to graduate and get out of school. I am straight and white, but I am not bigoted or racist (and if you are, I definitely donít want to be around you). I believe in equality, gay marriage, pro-choicity, etc., etc..
Things I hate
Things I like
I like dogs and cats, but I am allergic to cats (maybe dogs too (probably)).
I like drawing, writing, and criticizing things. I am currently writing a sitcom to sell. I hope to also write a cartoon that I will produce myself (but I canít draw very well (see for yourself: link)). I also want to record a podcast, but no one will do it with me.
I spend a lot of time playing video games. No, not the popular Rock Band kind, and no, not the broíd-out First Person Shooters (not that thereís anything wrong with those). I try to play games that are art; games that make you feel things you couldnít feel otherwise. I see beauty in the world through a screen in my bedroom.
I hate sports, but I enjoy pool (billiards).
I donít have a job. I like it this way. I also donít have any money. I donít like that so much.
All of my friends moved away, and with my aversion to going outside, along with my hatred of numerous other things it has been difficult to make new ones.
If you spend time on the internet, we could chat. If you live in the Hampton Roads area we could hang out. If you want to record a podcast with me CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY.
Since I hacked my iPod for video mirroring I discovered ZiGGURAT is now the best console game in addition to best portable.
After seeing some gameplay footage, I am now unbelievably excited for Lollipop Chainsaw.
Journey was great.
My new, unworn shorts appear to have sand in the pockets.
I know youíve all been waiting to know my list of favorite games. Here they are (in order of most to least favorite):
I want you all to realize what an incredible feat this is. I hate almost everything. These games are not only tolerable, theyíre great! I promise if you play all of these games to the end, you will be a better person (of course, ZiGGURAT has no end, but you should play it for a while).
Guys, remember when I said I was going to go build a sexy website? Well here it is: halloweenbagsearly.com
I donít know how I couldíve made it any better. Iím also probably changing over my personal email to be blaine [at] halloweenbagsearly.com. What do you guys think?
I want to move on to writing a different episode. Pilots suck.
Instead of sleeping, now all I want to do is die. melodramatic
I want to sleep so bad. Itís all I want in life.
My new computer has 12 usb ports on it.
I made this entertainment unit this week with some wood and my bare hands. (Not yet organized)
I miss mouse pads, you guys.
If you have an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, please buy this game. Generally speaking I think touchscreen-phone games are terrible (like Angry Birds (fuck Angry Birds)). This game somehow has managed to surpass that and become one of my favorite games. This is no small feat. Check it out, you wonít regret it.

All of the grappling hooks on amazon have reviews that say they bend. Where am I supposed to find a quality grappling hook?

Hey Tumblr. I havenít been around for a while because I hate Doctor Who. But it seems like all the David Tennant posts have been replaced by Benedict Cumberbatch. Sherlock is a Steven Moffat production that I could get behind (although the gay jokes are pretty heavy handed) so I guess I could tentatively return.

If anyoneís interested I posted a bunch of new articles on my homepage. Some of them were created for a blog project I had, but I edited the ones I liked until I was happy with them.
Ah, Google. Youíre so silly.
This is just a graph I found while browsing the Help for Men section of the AMA's site. It's part of a support network for men who have had bad sexual experiences. This is just a graph I want to put out there for all the ladies with kung fu grips. We appreciate you, but. Damn.

Or real onesÖ
Did I ever tell you guys about Mustache TV? The party game thatís sweeping the nation?
The now defunct site once would ship a novelty mustache and you would stick it on a random place on your tv. Then you award yourself points based on what it lands on and following a set of rules.
In short, Mustache TV is a game kit which includes a rulebook and mustache. You put the mustache on your TV, then award yourself points according to the rulebook when the mustache falls on something ó an un-mustachioed face, the front of a car, the Queen of England, whatever. It makes anything youíre watching 1000 times better, and any party 20,000 times more fun.
Even though this game is no longer being shipped, you can still have fun with it! I know for a fact that fake mustaches can be found in Party City, and there are probably plenty of other places. Buy one, stick it to your tv, and make up some rules. It could even just be a drinking game, where you drink anytime it falls on a face.
Please let me know how your experiences go! And if you come up with a sweet set of rules, make a cool pdf for others to use.
Be sure to tag your posts ďMustache TVĒ (even though I prefer the spelling ďmoustacheĒ)
I also know tiredbackwards, n-e-way, miss-queena, thioindoxilyn, and shabudoo IRL but I was totally winging this and made no preparations.
And after all this, the worst part of my day?
I donít have any video games to play.
-a poem by Blaine Brown
I played the first few cases of LA Noire, and I think that while the facial animations are amazing and the writing is good, the basic investigation gameplay is SEVERELY FLAWED and makes the game absolutely terrible to play.
Edit: If you think itís fun or it sucks please explain why.
Iíve cut my own hair since middle school. Though, most of you could probably have guessed that by looking at me.
I canít wait for it to grow back some so I can cut it again.
Sometimes Iíll kill a bug (only when I have to when itís in the house) with a napkin or something. Even though I didnít touch it I still feel uncomfortable until I wash my hands. I think I got problems.
Argh. Still having trouble flood filling in flash when I use the pencil tool. Anyway, I drew this.
I drew this cowboy. Iím not particularly happy with it, but I donít know why.
I worked really hard on the hat, though.
The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck
Garrett Martin of Paste Magazine
Normally, I would say that it is hard to get to know someone by simply knowing facts about them. In fact, I typically find those sorts of people who like to talk about facts to be boring; like talking about politics or focusing on someoneís poor grammar in a discussion about something more meaningful. If I were to try to explain the types of things Iím interested in it would be: art and living. If I were to explain in more detail it would be, ďYou know how in philosophy of ethics classes they say ĎEthicists talk about how we should live.í Well thatís the sort of thing Iím interested in.Ē I want to talk about what living is like, what sort of emotions come up in different situations, and what those emotions mean. This is all very vague. Anyway, due to popular demand, here are some facts about me.
Fact 1: I am long winded
For people who donít know me personally it might be nice to have some basic labels to affix on my various opinions in case they get tired of simply responding, ďgay lol.Ē
Socially progressive though not an activist
Sort of a hippie/ster
Drug and (mostly) Alcohol Free, though not against either
Thinks girls who smoke are sexy Doesnít Smoke
Straight but, again, socially progressive
22, white, uninteresting heritage
Thin body type, but working on it (by eating)
Not super into music
Fact 2: On making money
I donít want to work because working means doing something for money which seems like prostitution to me no matter the context. Worrying about money is basically the worst thing you can do (especially for art) and this is present in so many professions like advertising or business. I hate worrying about money, and this shows in my life. For example I have $0.33 in my bank account right now (no exaggeration). Seems to me that itís pretty bad when the amount of money in your bank is the same as the amount in your couch cushions.
Fact 3: I donít like travelling
I think itís kind of boring to go sight-seeing when all that stuff is on Flickr, literally at my fingertips at all times. Some of my friends tell me that when you go travelling you get to meet all different kinds of people. This seems good at first, but when you think about it you donít really get to know anything deep about those people when you travel. The best thing to do is to become good friends with a few people. Unfortunately all my friends think that travelling is a good idea so they all leave me alone in my city with no friends. I would possibly travel if I could stay in one place for a few months (maybe Summer) and get to know the area.
Some of my other friends tell me that travelling is good because you can bang foreign chicks. As appealing as this sounds; having sex is fun but Iím not going to go through much effort to get it.
Fact 4: Aspirations
Iíd like to write some awesome things that could be turned into tv shows or movies or video games. That way I can have enough money to watch tv shows, movies, and play video games all the time.
Iíd like to learn to draw. For fun, for a job, whatever. I just want to do it.
Iíd like to have my own house that I can decorate. I really love thinking up crazy furniture ideas, but I never have a place to put them so I donít make them.
If I have a job where I have to work everyday and itís not writing, drawing, or banging sexy ladies; I will die.
I would love to own a mini-golf course.
Guys, I love Mountain Dew.
The story is, I was really drunk one time and one of my friends threw an orange at me. I caught it, amazingly since my vision was blurry at this point. Then I said, ...Hey man, I'm not a fucking‚Ä¶ citrus collector.ď It was the big joke next morning.
ahahaha! That actually made me laugh out loud‚Ä¶ hahahah. oh my god.
Everyone should know this story about me.
I have no new games to play nor anything new to watch.
supersoniiic said I couldnít draw so I drew something to prove her wrong.
Itís a cat. Itís been a while since Iíve seen one though.
Iíve got to get in on these news reports. Theyíre all over the place.
Thatís right. Somehow, Tumblr is two of my top 8 visited sites.
Thanks, friends, for your responses.
Itís hard to explain exactly why I decided to quit watching House. Some shows, like The Big Bang Theory, clearly offended me by deriving humor from insulting the audience.
I donít think House ever insulted me in that way. The truth is, though, that I think I only ever watched House to begin with because Hugh Laurie is awesome. And Iíve put up with a meaningless plot and trumped up drama for too long.
I think I knew it was over in the episode when House imagined Sitcoms and Musicals; but I kept up for one more episode.
As I watched my final episode I realized the only thing I really liked about House was seeing my favorite characters pushed out of their comfort zone and/or doing silly things (Foreman and Taub playing video games, Chase figuring out who posted his photoshopped Facebook image). I feel like if they could successfully make the show revolve around that silliness instead of bothering with medicine, it would be great. They could just place the setting in a hospital.
Of course, then itíd just be scrubs.
Actually I donít really want either. If they happen naturally then Iíd probably go with it, but thinking about it right nowÖ theyíre both so much work for a reward Iím not terribly interested in.
Or one person to kill.

Edit: Good luck figuring out where you are in time on the stupid Tumblr audio plugin, but seriously just listen to the whole thing. Itís great.
Casey Muratori on Muppet Babies
Is it ethical for Ms. Piggy to have a kid when sheís only like a year and a half old? I mean, that doesnít make any fucking sense to me. Right? Who is that child? And do they address any of these issues? Plus all of the muppets are not the same fucking age! Waldorf and Statler.. older than that eagle.. thing.. older than Bunsen Honeydew.. okay? THEYíRE NOT ALL BABIES AT THE SAME FUCKING TIME. Who was the plot continuity guy? Who said that like a forty year old fucking muppet and a twenty year old muppet would be babies in the same goddamn nursery?
