    Just so you know, as long as Tina Fey keeps doing these, I'll keep posting them :p

    Two things strike me about this video:

    Firstly, there's a lot of star power in that.

    Secondly, Amy Adams is beyond adorable :p

    My new wallpaper:

    Purdy pic. Thx NASA.

    Huh, well VG Cats seems to be striving for the lowest of the low these days - I'd forgiven them for the slash fiction comic, but the latest two comics just aren't right... Abortion jokes ahoi. :oops:

    I meant to post this a while ago - [link=http://twitter.com/Murdersandwich]My Twitter[/link]. It took me a while to get into this, but now I'm really getting the whole twitter thing.

    Ditto. The key is to follow as many people as you can, so you really get the collective stream-of-consciousness thing going on. I like it, especially during things like the presidential debate that was just on today (our time), where you can basically follow in real time what people are thinking. It's cool.

    I love reading stories of epic length in which someone tries to accomplish something basic and is foiled at every turn, going completley loopy along the way. There's something about manic-eyed insanity crossed with pure stubborn determination that makes for a hilarious read. Well here is a great one: [link=http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=195920&site=pcg]a PC Gamer writer's attempt to win a game of Galactic Civilisations 2 through purely peaceful means[/link]. And he only had to blow up a few suns to do it. It's epic in length, but brilliant to read the eye-twitching, teeth-gritting level of determination he reaches in his violent, bloody quest to peacefully unite all races of the galaxy.

    It's a cute idea. Hope it works for them.

    BBN, thanks for posting that article. I laughed, I cried, I now want to play GalCiv.

    Barak Obama's online campaign team could learn a few things from [link=http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlVUXLBJg14]this clip[/link]. It speaks to our demographic on a much more personal level.

    Okay... I'll bite. I have no issue with Rick Astley, but that is seriously a case of far too much time on one's hands. Cool concept, but too much time, way too much time.

    Always good to hear more of these characters... Scout's got a few goodies - 'already dead' and 'bear'...

    This is one of the better [link=http://www.cnnbcvideo.com/taf.shtml?id=&nid=RkpZAeE61m1HHHNlwOez0zMwNDY2Nw]Your Name Here[/link] videos I've seen - until the end, I'd simply assumed it was an Onion-style election news parody that just happened to include a friend's name by coincidence. Well played, MoveOn.org.
