Der Lulzening (or, LOL)

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2009 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Happy-making web fun: that Mario Don't Stop Me Now video, absurd hip-hop lyrics and videos, that OK Go video, and B-roll.

It probably requires invisible (to me) investment in Penny Arcade as a franchise, but the PA TV pilot is classifiable as web fun, and makes me very happy. Thanks in large part to the Freezepop song at the end of the second part. (Not really LOLish, though.)

That Mario video took a very, very, very long time. Wow.

Also, I mentioned this the other day: Weezer + Moog Cookbook + animated ferrets on a trampoline = the most effective cure for clinical depression known to humankind.
