weird hat vlog - reallyRen33


Just me talking about my weird hat. Then I talk about what I want for Christmas. Then I ponder why my hat is so small...is it actually made for kids or is my head just abnormally large? wow you pretty much don't have to even watch the video now if you already read this...my bad? Promise I will have better video up in less than 24 hours...

The Web.Files #21 - HTSAAAR

On the twenty-first episode of The Web.Files, oh the show can legally drink now, Kristyn Burtt interviews Taryn O’Neil, Stuart Papp, and Stephanie Thorpe from the new series, Hurtling Through Space at an Alarming Rate (HTSAAAR). Also, there is a special cameo by several other web series.

Hurtling Through Space at an Alarming Rate is about two guys who are hurtling through space…at an alarming rate except their space ship looks remarkable like a two bedroom apartment. Also, despite the fact that they are traversing the galaxy their neighbors can still pop in and the Internet still works. Each week finds them landing on a different planet where wackiness inevitably ensues.

Special LG15 Announcement - stretchandmayonaise



First, I REALLY want to apologize for the amount of time this took to upload. If there's one thing I want for Christmas, it's better internet.

Second, like i mentioned in the video, I know it's very overdue, but I just wanted to wish Austin the best of luck, and congratulations on winning TSIY2! I also wanted to congratulate Mitch on winning the Peoples vote as well!

Third, I want to thank everyone for all of their support toward LG15: The Order Files. It really means a lot to me, and I really hope you all enjoyed the pilot episode and trailer.

I will have more information for you guys in the coming month!

The Order Files will run as a community video "mini series" from January 3rd to January 10th.


Safety Pin-up Calendar

Recently, the Web TV community was all a twitter (see what I did there) over a listing of the hottest stars in web series. Noticeably, absent from the list was Safety Geeks’ Brittney Powell. The only rational I can surmise for such an oversight is that it was a top 5 list, and she would have required two slots. Fortunately, Dave and Tom, the team behind the series, have filled the gap, releasing a Safety Geek’s pin-up calendar. Oh, if only more creators had their foresight.

Despite being a calendar for the series, each cast member is not featured equally; however, I believe, focusing on Brittney Powell was a wise decision. While I am certain there will be a small audience disappointed that there are no cheesecake shots of Tom Konkle, Ms. Powell probably has more broad audience appeal. Also, while the calendar is rather cheeky, it is still tastefully done and can be displayed equally in either a dorm room or disgraced politician’s office. My one complaint, aside from the lack of personal delivery, is that the producers missed an obvious shot, boobs wrapped in safety tape. Oh well, there is always next year, and Photoshop.

The calendar is for sale on Dave and Tom’s website. Also, for those of you wondering, yes this entire article was an excuse just to post the above pictures, and yes, I really am that shallow. Also, check out the series, SafetyGeeks:SVI available on Koldcast.

Alternate-reality games flourish at the grassroots

Rather, it was a very small-scale--and low-tech--version of what is known as an alternate-reality game, an entertainment genre that has grown in popularity in recent years, especially because its traditional use of mixed-media--the Web, cell phones, social media, and others--can allow large numbers of people to play together collaboratively.
