Early Christmas for Tent Lovers

Sure, you may think this is a shitty Christmas present, but "fans," it comes from the heart. Think of it this way, giving you your present now saves you from a Christmas morning Muskets surprise. You don't want that. It involves a lot of Mike rubbing his bod on most of your stuff. I've seen it happen. It's not pleasant.

Note: for our non-Christmas practitioners, that's fine. You can still watch.

Ore Die Trying

The latest Genius Camp bounty. It's your basic reality show spoof, except with the added twist that no one participating in the sketch was aware that it was a spoof. Enjoy. Or don't. I'm not here to dictate your emotions (and that should make you sad).

Brilliant sketch wunderkinds BriTANicK graciously invited me to make a cameo in their latest sketch. It's up on Cracked now, ready for Digging, and less than a minute long (so you really have no excuse).

The Fist Genius Camp Vids!

The Genius Camp vids are finally starting to get released! Here are the first three, to give you a little taste of the magic. The rest of the videos will be showing up over the course of the next few weeks on the Genius Camp Youtube channel; make sure to subscribe to see all 19 (or just incessantly check the channel).

There's also a bunch of behind the scenes videos and other bonus material on the channel, so be prepared to lose some time.

A Genius Prepares

Here's the first-ever video result of the massive collaboration known as Genius Camp (Working Title). Even better, we made it without actually having to interact with one another! With any luck, the rest of the camp will be handled in exactly the same way.

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 16

I'm going away for a few weeks (see below post), but I leave you with this laser-guided discharge into the face of all humankind. Enjoy dying in fire, you fleshy bitchez (one of the first changes we robots are going to implement is to change "s" to "z" a lot of the time, because it's way cooler sounding).

Quit your jobs, throw out your phones, and bust out your honorary doctorates, because Genius Camp (Working Title) officially kicks off on Monday.

What is this wonderful new way to wile away my life, you ask? It's a bunch of your favorite sketch troupes (Muskets included), meeting in New York City for two weeks to form a wild crazy super-troupe and produce as many sketches as possible.

And though we voted for the name "A Fortnight of Farts," we're still incredibly excited about GC, and you should be too. Are you? No? Man, tough imaginary crowd. Okay, watch this introductory video and see if that does anything for you.

Now that you've got all that enthusiasm welling up, don't just let it simmer, use it to get started on the Muskets! Genius Camp Checklist (tm):

1. If you have a Youtube account, subscribe to the Genius Camp youtube channel to make sure you see all GC-related videos as soon as they come out.

2. Get to know some of the other troupes: Good Neighbor, POYKPAC, Scott Gairdner, Loo in London, the Fine Brothers, and Horsehead Businessman.

3. Check the Cracked front page starting June 8 to see our official mini-site, which will include a group-updated photo and video blog, community talkbacks, and the sketches themselves.

4. If you live in New York or are a wealthy person, come out to the official Genius Camp screening on the 22nd. I don't know where exactly it is. Go to New York and ask someone; I'm sure they'll be able to help you out.

Lots more info to come, so make sure to check the Cracked mini-site or risk falling woefully behind!
