We knew this day would come, Algernon.
My duties at #24MAG have increased, so now I’m not just contributing and making launch videos, I’m more or less the community manager and assistant editor. Coolio! Issue 5 is going to be wild, people. Go buy a subscription.

About a year ago, I made this video for Math The Band. When I lived in Providence, Kevin and Justine lived in the same artist community that I did. We met during one of the meet & greets, and kept running into each other doing our volunteer hours. (They are, by the way, rad people.) I mentioned that I do video (among other things), and they said they were looking to make one video for every song on their new album. I was given a March deadline, and apparently I was one of the only people to stick to deadline, ‘cuz they were still waiting on videos in September.
Anyway, here’s the idea: I created a karaoke video for the song where all the lyrics were replaced with mondegreens – nonsense phrases that sound similar enough to the real one that you could mis-hear them. I had six different people listen to the song and then perform while reading these fake lyrics for the first time, then animated illustrations of the fake lyrics. It was a shit-ton of work, but also a shit-FUN of work, if you sink my lure.
I’m not entirely sure the concept comes across without explanation. Also not entirely sure I care. Kevin and Justine just officially launched this video today, so it’s up to the world to decide now. Not that I’ll ever know; Rule #1 is Never Read The Comments.

One-Eyed Monsters – an adventure game of sorts, the hypothetical love-child of The Secret of Monkey Island and Lemmings. Take control of four survivors living in the ruins of Oakland, California, avoiding the giant fuck-off aliens. Solve puzzles through cooperation, coordination, defenestration, and inertia. And maybe, if you’re lucky, reconstruct human civilization. (Slightly longer version.)

OddBrawlz was the final name of my entry for the TIGSource Sports Compo. Everything I’ve made so far has been for 3-day jams, and usually extremely stripped down. I wanted to do a month-long jam to make something with a little more thought. I’m also not a skilled enough programmer to impress anybody with three days of work. (Yet.)
