I know I’ve been mostly reblogging lately and I apologize - it’s the result of a general malaise and my iMac being repaired (they’re replacing the hard drive, optical drive, logic board, keyboard and iSight - yikes).

bg5000: I don’t know why, but there’s just something unsettleing about this video to me. I think it’s cause it’s shot all Cloverfield style. That, and how well done the shots of the Death Star are.
Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People - Gameplay Trailer I’m seriously impressed by the 3-D character design and cel shading here - a lot of the original Flash cartoon drawings seemed pretty difficult to dimensionalize, but they even got Homestar’s mouth right - and the video is basically a facsimile of the 2-D cartoon’s style.
