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 Daily Show/Colbert Report: I THINK I KNOW EVERYTHING
As this is basically a running diary of two shows that air four times a week barring holidays and other things, let's just start with the basics:
*The Daily Show is a fake-news program that does a lot better and has more informed viewers than the actual news. The host is very sad about this. Every so often he will wreck the shit of someone that deserves it. Most of the time they do not see it coming, and even when they do, he doesn't care.
*The Colbert Report is a fake-punditry show. The host, while being somewhat weaker at interviews, has just as much ability to wreck someone's shit, particularly lower-level politicians, which is why they have a tendency to steer clear of him nowadays. He is startlingly prone to Crowning Moments of Awesome. For example, this:
Annnnd you can just have those images in your head for a while.
As it stands, we're just coming off a weeklong break, coming back to shows interspersed with commercials for a guy that thinks he can bend the Internet to his will or something. To spite this man, his show will not be mentioned in this space.
EDIT: Oh, you damn anti-embedding thingie.
I'm trying, through my blog, to break into the journalism industry. Any eyes and ears that pick up on any leads towards that end are greatly appreciated. PM me if you happen to hear anything.
