Stunning. Simply stunning.
New vlog, guys! I hope you enjoy my reenactment of what happened when Wil Wheaton tweeted me, and how I recovered!
It’s embarrassing, but hey, what would happen if someone you looked up to acknowledged your existence?
As an artist and creator, I spend more time than I should wondering if my work actually means anything to anyone. I mean, when I write a story or make a Thing, I satisfy this weird creative urge that all artists have (it’s a thing that’s broken in our brains), and that’s awesome… but I’d be lying if I said making it was enough. The truth is, creators and performers need an audience to create and perform for, which brings me back to spending too much time wondering (read: obsessively worrying) if anyone gives a shit.
But in my life, there’s this other thing, too, where I have an opportunity to somehow touch a life (that I’d never touch otherwise) because of the things I create. When I saw this video, I was embarrassed that a thing I did mattered to Victoria enough for her to make a vlog about it… but then I was all, “This is awesome, and look how happy she is, and how funny, and when our lives intersected for a grand total of about 25 seconds over Twitter, this was the result for her.”
I’m incredibly grateful that I get to do more with my work than just make things, and when she meets a real celebrity, instead of someone who’s just Internet Famous like I am, I hope they’re awesome to her.
You’re a good egg, Wil Wheaton.
When I first watched this post-apocalyptic animated short by Oddball Animation, I felt like Star Wars and Indiana Jones had a video game baby. I just couldn’t look away. Visually, it’s absolutely stunning. And it features bad ass motocycle maneuvers and cleverly executed explosions. Umm…awesome!
Goddamn that was awesome.
Brilliant video from the Guardian around open journalism. Really worth a look:
