Overheard on the Internet
I am so behind on posting these things that many of them are old, plus this list is too long for it to be particularly meaningful. Even so:
A few fans have a crazy scheme to send a poor, innocent, stuffed monkey all around the world and take photos of his travels. The LA pics are already in this Picasa gallery. Where will he show up next?
Still Alive activity continues to plug up the series of tubes. Here’s one about Joust, one from the player’s perspective, Rob Balder’s parody on The FUMP, one sung by a Frag Doll accompanied by Jam Sessions on the DS, another excellent remix with some new vocals, and still another remix/duet with me and GLaDOS. If you want sheet music, here’s Jarrett’s piano arrangement, and Ryan’s incredibly detailed transcription.
I’m proud to say that the kind folks at Penny Arcade have honored me and Valve by reviving the We’re Right Awards specifically for Portal. There is an excellent little bathroom-door-style icon of me in the comic. Plus, Valve has released the song (and a version with my original vocal) in the Amazon mp3 store, and for a while it was something like #7 on the most popular list. (It figures my biggest hit ever would be the one song I don’t own, but what are you gonna do?)
I must put the image here because it is too awesome. Here is Jason’s JoCo paper doll:
Here is Greg’s Blogjam comic based on Big Bad World One that ran in the Tampa Tribune.
Here is Ian playing Octopus on the uke, despite it being a song that nobody REALLY likes.
Here is Joseph’s short story from Scarface’s perspective.
And finally, in the strangest turn yet, here is actual Kenesaw Mountain Landis slash fiction. (WARNING: if you don’t know what slash fiction is, and if you don’t want to read graphic descriptions of Kenesaw and Shoeless Joe getting it on, you should probably not click on that link.) I am truly amazed.
And now I am all caught up, except for the things that I have forgotten or misplaced – enough internet, enough!
