Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Areas of My Expertise - The John Hodgman Thread
This guy, in my opinion, is one of the funniest people in America, but nobody seems to notice. His book "The Areas of my Expertise" is one of my all-time favourite books, but it usually seems to get overlooked. For example, the Audiobook version was a free download on iTunes, and for a free download, it was amazing. Hodgman records the entire book along with Jonathan Coulton doing music (he wrote the music for Portal, and is himself hilarious), and yet they needed to make it free to get it out there. Tycho and Gabe don't seem to know about it (this is made apparent by most recent comic title). His segments on the Daily Show are few and far between, yet they are easily the funniest. Am I alone in my opinion of this guy? Why doesn't he get more notoriety? Has anyone else here read his book?
BTW if you haven't read it, you should. Kinda hard to find though...which just goes to further illustrate my point.
