Stupid Internet Tricks

So, having the Google Ion has resulted in me having a camcorder handy at all times. Additionally, most of my co-workers also have mobile devices with cameras built-in. What the result of this? Scads of silly videos. If hearing about the exceedingly boring minutia of my life via twitter wasn’t good enough for you, perhaps this shall quench your need:

I/O Video

So, since Google hooked everyone up with video recording devices (I mean, cell phones with cameras,) I took the opportunity to shoot some video for the company. However, I’m in these videos, so it’s relevant here as well. Check out the videos at youtube.

I wear my stunna glasses at Computer Stop, so I can, so I can, look at expensive 3D monitor effects in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, I am going to Google I/O in San Fran as I am an Android Developer, and the company is paying for it. One of these years, I won’t end up going to a con unexpectedly.

Oh, and someone did a video for an old song of mine that I should probably do fresh vocals on. NintendoNerr bevideoifies “He’s Homsar”.

Since LOL MOE is almost at 10K views…

I figured I’d post a new video of me doing some more serious(ish) rapping. The beat is lifted from a Chase and Status song named “Running.” Snoop Dogg isn’t the only guy who can lift a great dub/grime beat.

Now Annotated

Since “LOL MOE” has somehow pulled in over 9000 views, I felt like doing something fun to give back. So, I annotated it as fully as I could so you know exactly what manga I’m throwing down and what posters and such are in the background.

Nerdcore 64^3: I swear this isn’t a Mega64 blog

Yet again, a link to the video. Check at about 58 minutes and 45 seconds in. You’ll get to hear (amongst other things) Rocco says “(Karl’s) a nerdcore rapper; we love him,” and Garrett say “Opensource Lyricist? It’s f***in good!” Additionally, Nursehella gets love again as well, as Rocco refers to her as a “great nerdcore rapper” and a cool picture of Derrick and her is featured in the podcast.

On that tip, buy my music. “It’s f***in good!” 😉

PS: Even MC Router gets a nod.

Nerdcore 64

Link to video in case the above embed doesn’t crosspost to LJ.

Look for me leaving The Mega64 Panel at PAX2008 at about 44 minute and 54 seconds in. You’ll also see my friend Derek and Nerdcore rapper MC Gigahertz also leaving, as we were on our way to catch the West Coast premiere of Nerdcore Rising.

So, what can this post yield more than goofy video of me saying “NERDCORE RISING, BABY, WHAT!?!” Well, Nerdcore Rising is a good documentary, and it compliments Nerdcore For Life well – one gives you the godfather of the genre and the realities of his first tour, and one gives you an overview of the genre he helped to create, and in retrospect, it only it makes sense to document these things separately. Additionally, the Mega64 guys turned out to the PAX premiere of Nerdcore For Life, and they really dug the movie and the people in it.

Everything comes full circle I suppose.

Better Video / Inadvertant Comedy

So, the video quality on my STIFF after party performance was a shade mediocre (thanks to my cheap refurb digital camera;) however Betheny Lee (aka Bethzilla, friend of Beefy,) actually had a decent camcorder and shot the same performance, which is viewable here. There are also performances from Beefy, Beefy featuring Bethzilla and YT Cracker from the same evening, as well other cool business like Q&A’s and other nerdcore antics viewable here, though you’ll have to scroll down a bit.

On the comedy side of the headline, turns out my local anime store of choice, Anime Raku (formerly Anime Kingdom,) has been buying google ads. I know this because they’ve run on my page. If you see there ad on the sidebar, click though so I get some money back 😉
