I'm not really sure how I feel about this.
I only know it's a raging confluence of countless streams of tired geeky things.
The Huggable Universe
Having thought about it, this video makes me feel sad.
It's like watching happy dog videos. Why are you so happy, dog? How can you enjoy something so much? Why haven't I ever enjoyed anything that much? What do I have to do to be like you?
I only find this video embarrassing because I desperately wish I could throw myself into something so whole-heartedly that I no longer cared how other people feel about me or that which I love.
Yet you'll never see anyone say anything like that in the Power Ranger con video.
It's like any cult. Part of you wishes you could lose yourself into some cause so completely with and take on a fulfilled, if narrow, worldview.
But then the sane part of you realizes how sad it is.
I feel the same way about videos like that hambeast crying over the twilight trailer, or some nerd like invisablecrane showing off how incredably excited he is to have a copy of some video game I forgot was being released that week.
In a way, I feel a slight twinge of jealousy towards you, english hambeast. Angelina Jolie could call me up, and tell me she's bringing over a huge suitcase of cash in the private jet she's giving me, and all I have to do is sleep with her to get it all, and then I'd manage to get as excited as these guys do every time Twilight or Squaresoft announces a new product.
I'm not ashamed to get excited, I got friends who get excited...

This is why we don't have Episode 3, every time somebody makes a Portal reference or jokes about Gabe Newell's weight Ep3 gets pushed back another minute.
Fuck, that's like 4 minutes right there. I've got to agree with WWD though, I liked team fortress at first, but now all it's annoying and packed with inside jokes and even more annoying players, and I never gave a shit about left4dead. All I really want is another HL2 episode, preferably one that isn't roughly 1/4 gravity gun.

I've never been to a 'Con' or gotten enthused enough about any of my geek tastes to put it towards creative output. But sometimes people like this make me wish I had.

This new Polyphonic Spree single is very strange.
I get that joke

If you're not swaying your head to the music, then you hate fun.

I am cool with this happening. Sure, it's brand programming, but they're not there to find Jesus.
Besides, I sang along.

I don't understand this planet. I'm moving to the moon.

This needs an "attention whore" tag badly, since thats what most cosplayers are. I'd feel bad for them if they didn't repulse me so much.

Fast summery for people who have no idea what's going on: Computer kills everyone in a lab (except for the one who gets away) then sings a song about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6ljFaKRTrI (7,151,744 views)

I think the thing that bugs me most about this is that it's a cultish obsession with a company that makes products for them. This seems to be a confluence of three different Valve games (maybe? I've only played Half-Life), to the tie that binds these people is that they're all devoted to a company that they have no real association with.
I suppose I still have childish "I hate capitalism" sentiments that I haven't grown out of, but this seems like wholly depraved consumerism to me.

If you're going to be a nerd about this song, do it properly. PAX 2010 had a girl playing this song on the ukelele, dressed up as the robot. It was creepy and very awesome.

I like what they're trying to do, they just really suck at it.
