Agents Of Cracked Wins Streamy!

Thanks to your tireless voting, re-voting, and un-anti-voting, Agents of Cracked bagged the Audience Choice award at this years' Streamy Awards! Thanks guys! You can check out Mike's terrible speech at the Streamys below (featuring the Sklar Brothers!).

And here are slightly better speeches from Dan and Mike at Streamys II, a meet-n-greet held later for the winners (we're right at the end):

And last but not least, the spot we made to convince you to spend ten dollars on a show that's hosted free online. The nerve!

Cracked TV 2.0: Does Not Compute!

If you're following the narrative of our careers solely through this blog, you may not know that Mike's long-running talk show Cracked TV recently got a reboot as Does Not Compute, a biweekly video column about whatever's currently causing him the most computational consternation. Hint: it's usually a Youtube clip.

In case you missed it, here are the final two episodes of Cracked TV, as well as the first three of Does Not Compute, to get you through the transition. Consider yourself officially caught up, and feel free to check out new episodes of DNC right here or at Cracked every other week.

Did I Mention The Site Was Down?

Computers. Right?

As you may have noticed, emailed us about, asked about us on the street, or carved into your pets, the Those Aren't Muskets! site has been "down" for some time now. I'd say exactly how much time, but the hackers got into my watch too and now it just screeches continuously.

But like the mythical phoenix, we have risen from the ashes of defeat in a blaze of pure, golden glory and several reposted videos. Those are below, and they represent some stuff you may have missed if you were just sitting on our warning page waiting for the site to get fixed.

A big thank you to all of the fans who let us know the site was down. It's nice to know so many, many people observed our technical incompetence unfold in real time. And a HUGE thank you to Kevin Clark, the man whose technical competence got this old boat back on the water. He is a true friend to us, the site, comedy, and some of the kinder animals. He's also awesome at programs.

So we'll skip the awkward hug and just say it's nice to be back. Stay tuned here and over at Cracked for the freshest Muskets!, and keep reading this very blog for some major announcements.

Interview With Mike @ The Huffington Post

Thanks to Greg Boose of HuffPo who put together a fabulous write-up on myself and the troupe. There's a few actual points in there, but don't worry, I put in plenty of filler bullshit too. Because if I'm about anything, it's QUANTITY OF VERBIAGE.

See? Huffington Post Interview! I'm worth making a Wikipedia page for now, right? Right?!

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 27

Wherein I mock people with incredible (but useless) talents, because making comedy videos on the Internet is so much more practical and important.

The Decade In Retrospect

A full year ahead of schedule, my the Cracked writing staff (myself included) have put together a decade-end retrospective. We wanted to do it early because there's a good chance we're all going to leave the site and become slow-boat captains this year (if I have anything to say about it, anyway).

S.W.A.I.M., Episode 25

Just in time for the holidays, it's...something to scar your children! Cheaper than presents, and at least as harrowing.
