From the Awesomeness in Filmmaking department:
Machinima has established itself as the unappreciated underdog of filmmaking, at least amongst the 3D purist complaineys. To everyone else who sees it's potential to streamline and facilitate creativity, it's definitely something to check into. Not to mention the tool development is community driven (much like Blender). Arguably, Avatar was filmed in a machinima fashion, though with a couple of coats of CGI to cover it up.
I've never played Portal, or World of Warcraft, but this is the coolest shit recently:
From the Whose responsible this!?!? department:
have got more than their 15 minutes of fame recently up here on teh intarwebs. Fake or real, they're still entertaining, and at risk of becoming the next internet meme. I will begrudgingly watch any video with Yo-Landi Vi$$er in it, but only under duress.
From the So old skool we failed grade 9 twelve times department:
Server seems to be sending a lot of Dutch rap acts my way lately.
For some reason the music industry doesn't want me to be able to embed this video here.
Head over to youtube to find out what Run DMC sees when they close their eyes at night.
That video goes hand in hand with this track, in my opinion: (...watch your bass bins I'm tellin' ya...)
Again, the label are being a bunch of complaineys and don't want me to be able to embed the official video here, so again check it out on youtube...
