Video: My Little Serenity

A My Little Pony/Serenity Trailer Mash-Up. Applejack is Jayne is the best (and most natural) casting decision ever.

Silly Video: Cave Johnson’s “Lemons” rant from Portal 2

I played Portal 2 last week, and absolutely LOVED it. I’m dying to play it again. I thought Valve did a great job with the story, especially with the backstory of Aperture Science. The writing was fantastic—GLADoS was back and meaner than ever, but in her own hilarious way, of course. The gameplay was great, too; I liked the lasers (sorry, the “discouragement beams”) more than the pellets from the first game, and the hard light bridges were awesome.

Overall, I thought Portal 2 was a good companion to the first game. My only complaint is that you can’t play individual test chambers—you have to pick a “chapter” of the game (there are 10) and play through all the test chambers to get to the one you want. That doesn’t lend itself to the same kind of quick, repeat gameplay of the first one. (I often replay the Companion Cube and Turret levels from Portal when I’m bored with whatever else I’ve been working on and want a nice puzzle game.)

Anyways, I loved the part of the game that’s included in that video. Minor spoilers (?) for Portal 2, but nothing… too integral to the story.

Glenn Reynolds: “I’m a renaissance dweeb”

Bill Whittle recently interviewed Professor Reynolds about the blogging—how he got started, how blogging created an Army of Davids, and how he manages all the e-mails and links he receives throughout the day. It’s fairly short, entertaining, and pretty helpful. I’m definitely going to miss having seminars and classes with Professor Reynolds after I graduate.

Apple: If “App Store” trademark is Generic, so is Microsoft “Windows” I had a deep discussion with someone about this; I think “App Store” is a fairly generic term, but I can also make a strong argument in favor of the trademark. (For example, neither Droid nor Microsoft use “app” or “store” for their store fronts—it’s the Android Market, Microsoft Marketplace. RIM has the Blackberry App World, though.)

Charlie Sheen Quotes Presented by Superheroes They actually make more sense this way. The only thing that’s missing is Tigra from Thundercats talking about having Tiger’s Blood. XD

Arc Attack: Doctor Who Theme (Chattacon 2011)

Arc Attack performs songs from Tron: Legacy (Chattacon 2011)

Last weekend was Chattacon, a nice little first con of the year. Arc Attack performed, and like last year, they debuted some new devices and songs this year. One of their new songs was a mash-up of “The Grid” and “Derezzed” from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. It was incredible! Here’s a video of their performance:
