Just in general, this video was seeming like the right Meme Monday for today. This feeling was confirmed after watching last night’s excellent Last Week Tonight.
This was one of my original favorite Internet videos from way back on Albino Black Sheep, and one that my friends and I quoted a lot and that I still quote – and can recite – to this day. Enjoy!
I guess it’s a Guardians of the Galaxy kind of week. But this one has me excited for the movie to come out in a way others things haven’t. Enjoy!
Well, saw this sad news story: https://twitter.com/i/moments/890109172754329602
This gives us a few years to still enjoy some of the classics of the early Internet. For instance, I don’t know where I would be without Homestar Runner.
They’ve moved some of their content onto YouTube, but by no means all of it – and it lacks all the Easter Eggs and games.
For one you may not know, Amy Winfrey’s short films on Flash are some of my very favorites.
The final tweet in that Twitter Moment was a plea hoping that someone does something about preservation for Flash videos – and I second that thought. Hopefully someone figures out a way to do that. Would be an amazing museum exhibit. Or a good conversion project to some newer technology – even if the best they can do is uploads to YouTube, like with Homestar Runner.
What Flash videos and games are you sad to see go?

Busy days for us, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t still start with our favorite morning show, Good Mythical Morning. Rather than shut down operations for the summer while they worked on season 2 of their YouTube Red show, they have Monday and Wednesday shows with Rhett and Link, possibly/probably pre-recorded, and then Fridays they have had guest hosts.
The guest hosts have been a lot of fun, as they attempt to run a normal sort of Good Mythical Morning show – ending up doing all sorts of crazy things instead. This morning, it was the Vlog Brothers.
Rhett and Link have had guests on before so you kind of end up getting to see things like this normally, but it’s fun to actually see this happen without Rhett and Link there hosting. They’ve even been doing episodes of Good Mythical More! Hope you enjoy, I know we have been!
