Sketch Preview (or Post-View)

Our brand new sketch should be going up later today on the main page, but to tide you over (for the thing you didn't know was happening till just now), here's a tasty sneak peak I put together for no reason whatsoever.

SPOILER ALERT! This happens in the sketch. Also important to note: that girl looking disgusted at the sight of my bare chest? My fianceƩ. That's how hideous I am. Sigh.

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 12!

It's the 21st Century now, and we've all got to start looking to the future. Accordingly, I've changed the format of my show to a weird hybrid of TV and radio. Just like the future. Enjoy!

Video Game Characters With Mental Illnesses

What? I've combined elements from two spheres of experience which ought not to be combined according to traditional contexts? Methinks there may be comedy afoot!

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 11!

Why waste time reading a description of the episode when you can start wasting some serious time right now?! And if you've just got to waste that extra ten seconds, try Digging the vid, then whistling for nine seconds.

Mug of Pens!

The first installment of an erratically-updated series Dan O'Brien (of Cracked fame) and I are doing just went live today. Check it out here, and Digg it here if you want to help ensure its continuation.

S.W.A.I.M. Has A New Home!

In case you've trained your brain to totally ignore our little welcoming text on the front page, I wanted to make everyone aware that the S.W.A.I.M. show now has an official home on the Muskets! website! He's got his own special mini-site and everything. Check it out here or get to it any time from the link on the front page. There's never been a better time to watch them all again back to back!


Quick! There's a dinosaur fight at the old Whitley place, and we're all invited! If you're new to the sport, try checking out my latest Cracked article for a list of fossilized fops with glass jaws and occasional claws. And what's a paleontology article without a good Digg?

Black Max

Have you heard of this band Black Max? One of their guys contacted us with a question about video equipment, and I perused their website only to find that their music is genuinely awesome, so I thought I'd share. They're kind of like if the fancy sensibilities of the Decemberists met the dark carny vibe of the Tiger Lillies. They list some influences as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Stephin Merritt.

Dark, fancy, organ-y, pretty cool. Check 'em out, especially the in-site radio on this page (just click the flashing "on air" button).

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 10!

Thar she blows! And by "thar," I mean below this line of text. In this episode, our intrepid crew suffer casualties and fear for their futures. All that and LASERS. How can you go wrong?
