Hey guys! Long time, no see. Good news is, I'm alive and well. I've just been lacking in motivation, and busy enough to make excuses. Hopefully I'll put an end to that soon. I've been lamenting that I haven't made a new blog post here in nearly two months... and this after I had such a strong start this year. But at last, I've found something worth presenting to you.
While clicking through my favorite flash website, Newgrounds, earlier today, (Sorry, AlbinoBlackSheep. I'll never forget you.) I stumbled across this particular short film while on a mindless video spree. At almost 10 minutes long, I was a little hesitant to click on it. After all, I don't think I'd watched anything over the 3:00 mark all day. But I decided to bite the bullet and go for it.
Today is March 14th, 2013. Now, ladies and gentlemen, what would you say the most anticipated day in March is, hmm? I'll give you a hint: It doesn't have anything to do with the color green, leprechauns, or beer. (Okay, maybe beer.) Stumped yet?
It's ? day, of course! ?, spelled pi and pronounced like 'pie', represents a value of about 3.14159, or the ratio of a circle's circumference to it's diameter. Basically, if you took the edge of a circle and cut it so it would lay flat on the ground, it would be as long as 3.14 of those circles would be wide. It's useful in all kinds of equations, though it has probably appeared more in pop culture than it has in math lately.
Chances are you've heard of "Weird Al" Yankovic's song 'White & Nerdy', (a parody of the song "Ridin'" by...
Hello again, ladies and gents. Hope you've enjoyed this past month of YouTube Wednesdays. I've put some thought into it, and it looks like this will be the last YouTube Wednesday, but don't panic: I'm not actually 'ending' it, per-say. As of this entry, YouTube Wednesday will become Short-Film Sunday. The content will remain virtually the same, and I will continue to focus on high-quality shorts, just a new name, new show-date, and a better filing system. Hope you'll continue to enjoy!
This week, we're going to focus on an animated short I found some months ago. Out of Sight was the graduation project of three students from the National Taiwan University of Arts. It explores the imagination of a young, blind girl who has lost her way. Using her mind, she reveals her surroundings,...
Horror movies: how far can they go? Are there any lengths they will not go to for the sake of cheap thrills and jump-scares? It seems almost like there's some kind of running contest to see who can come up with the most ridiculous premise for their two-and-a-half hours of terror. Well, whether that contest is factual or fictional, I believe I've found my vote for the winner.
Today, in my travels through YouTube (and other parts of the internet), I stumbled across "The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon", a trailer / short film from Richard Gale Films with what should be a nearly self-explanatory title, yet somehow turns out to be slightly misleading.
(Fun Fact: The film is actually doing very well on IMDB)
He got spooned to death! Get...
Hey, guys! Welcome to the 2nd installment of YouTube Wednesday!
Once upon a time, on the magical plane of existence known as the internet, a fantastically talented voice actor named D-Mac-Double turned the mediocrity of an ill-grammar'd review of the Super PSTW RPG into a legendary voice track. With the hard work of Newground's own RicePirate, It was turned into a beautiful work of dynamic text. It's achieved a place of glory on the internet, and is also one of my favorite videos. Just goes to show what the power of narration can do when mastered.
The original post on Newgrounds has, sadly, been deleted. Possibly out of embarrassment. (Seriously kids, proofread yourselves before posting.) However, the text has been salvaged, and I now present you with it here:
