This week on Bleep Bloop I’m joing by Amir, ESPN Magazine’s Neil Janowitz, and real life up-and-coming boxer Jason Thompson for a little Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
Ben directed Pot Cookie Monster and found this amazing comment about it on current.com: “when pot cookie monster comes to the realization that he’s a puppet, it reminds me of the time i was stoned and confronted the fact that i was a primate which felt like some monumental, horrible revelation. i’d always known it on an intellectual level, but it had somehow finally penetrated my psyche and...
Bleep Bloop - now available in podcast flavor. Above: the finale of our Major League Gaming adventures.
I wrote this! It’s the first CHTV directed by our producer Ben Joseph, and I’m incredibly jealous of him and everyone else that got to hang out with puppets and McKenzie on set that day. Now you guys know why I’ve been watching Muppet clips on YouTube over the past few weeks (like here and here), and my roommate knows why Sesame Street has been popping up on our DVR (sidenote:...
When we started doing Bleep Bloop I looked at the list of games coming out this Fall, and I immediately knew I wanted to have Reggie Watts come in to record a song in the Guitar Hero World Tour’s brand new studio mode. This week that dream became a reality, with the added bonus of Jake & Streeter. I guess I’m saying this a lot, but this is one of my favorite episodes yet. Overall,...

I’ll be doing stand-up at Derrick Comedy’s “This Is New York” Sunday night. Come hang out - the website says it’s Sangria Sunday ($4 sangrias all night!)
It has come to my attention the deleted scenes from the 8-Player Bleep Bloop (that I posted about last week) weren’t working for a lot of people. Everyone should now be able to play it, which I sincerely hope they do. Here’s a link to the deleted scenes (they are also embedded above) and here’s a link to the actual episode in case you missed one of my favorite episodes so far. ...
The trailer for the new Pixar movie, Up, is up in HD on Apple’s site.
Look out Internet! Here’s CHTV’s newest, “The Matrix Runs on Windows.” The Matrix Runs on Windows - CollegeHumor video
The string arrangement on God Only Knows is fact and proof of angels.– Bono at Brian Wilson’s induction to the UK Music Hall of Fame, demonstrating how hyperbole can sometimes work in U2 lyrics but not in music critiscm.
A lot of people were like “Bleep Bloop is great, but it should be twice as long!” Here is some Bleep Bloop Blonus Footage with deleted scenes from the 8-player Extravaganza. There was so much good stuff I hated the idea of sitting on it.
In case you want more of me talking about videogames, I served as a panelist for FHM’s “What Game Should I Buy?” feature. The best question they asked was easily, “What’s a good game to buy for a girl who doesn’t like games?”
This week’s Bleep Bloop is our EIGHT PLAYER EXTRAVAGANZA and features me, Streeter, Pat, Owen, Sam, Kevin, Susanna, and our guest Jon Gabrus.
I’ve really enjoyed following FiveThirtyEight.com this election season. It’s a daily report on the polls that is easy enough for anyone to follow, yet complex enough to make all other polling reports look like high school homework. For instance, the AP recently did a story on the “remote” chance that Obama could win the popular vote but lose the electoral college....
I’ve never embedded anything from Viddler before, but goddamn I thought this video was funny. It’s about Sonic The Hedgehog on easy mode. I don’t know if it’s 20-minutes-long funny, but I skipped around and found solid LOLs throughout.
