Fun stuff  
Thanks to the evil influences of porfinn i spent a lot of the last couple days reading through all of "The DM of the Rings", a webcomic using screenshots from the LotR movies to presents the story as if it was a D&D campaign. Run by a stereotypically semi-competent DM with delusions of grandeur and a stereotypical bunch of players, thereby demonstrating just about every pen and paper RPG trope in existence.

It's bit old, finished up a little over a year ago i think, but somehow i'd never heard of it before. (But i presume steuard must have run into it already, right? =)

In the process of reading through it i was reminded of the existence of this silly and amusingly earwormy LotR music video on YouTube. Some people might even classify it as incredibly annoying :)

Anyways, after finishing that webcomic i got sucked into the author's video game comic, Stolen Pixels. There are only 63 of those so far, so i actually managed to get through all of them today.

This one has a cute list of links to internet memes, mostly in YouTube format.

This is an amusing one about Fallout 3 which manages to work FF7 into the commentary :)

And it's been done before, but i'm still amused by the portrayal of the WiiFit "game" as a abusive "friend." :)

Needless to say i have spent far too much time this evening reading webcomics and watching random YouTube videos :)

Edit: Oh, i found a really geeky analysis of the rhythm of the lyrics in the earwormy song above. It's really amusing to see a lit or music geek going to town on a campy fan music video :)

Yeah, I really enjoyed that comic; I should go back through it someday: I know there were some fantastic bits along the way. (Among other things, it gave pretty much the only halfway sensible explanation of why Elrond showed up in Rohan with Anduril in the movie. :) )

akiko thinks I totally posted about this like a couple years ago. Could be.

You know they're doing the same thing with the Star Wars prequels now, right? Darths and Droids.
