Webcomic Recommendation #2

It's that time again, if you didn't get a chance to check out the last post, I recommend it (obviously) but for this week it's:

The title suggests exactly what it says, this comic is about a doctor who is also a ninja.  In all likelihood if you spend a decent amount of time on the internet you've seen an image from this comic before:
(probably this one)
This comic has an incredibly zany sense of humor and is a great webcomic to binge on (you know, when you spend 3 hours reading every comic in the archive, that kind of binging).  To this day the comic keeps me guessing as to what happens next.  My one problem is that the lack of detail in the artwork becomes more apparent when you reading one comic page once every few days as opposed to fifty per hour.  The comic's effect is much greater when read as whole issues as opposed to one page at a time.  The author also leaves some pretty funny comments in the hover over captions for each page, so try not to miss any of them when plowing through. Rating time:

Well written
updates regularly(the author supports himself with the comic, so you know it's reliable)

art style is lacking sometimes
loses effect when read one page at a time

Overall: 8.5/10

Once again, I highly recommend reading a few issues, you won't regret it.

Sweet Flash Game

this game is pretty awesome, it's smooth, controls well, and the music is good try it out.

The More you Know: Youtube Fads

I've decided to take this time to educate you all on the wonderful, incredibly stupid, and slightly disturbing world of youtube fads.  I've spent more time than I care to admit on youtube and I've seen all manners of fads, but you might be wondering, what's a youtube fad?  Well to put it simply, it's basically when a single video is edited in various ways by different people.  While this seems somewhat normal, fads on youtube are a close relative to youtube poop (that's a whole other topic) and thus are completely retarded.  Here's an example:
Of course this video is meaningless if watched by itself.  You simply have to direct your gaze over to the suggested videos to see the literal hundreds of videos that are basically this exact same thing, but with some other youtube fad integrated into it.  Yes, you heard me right, youtube fads are created when people take other youtube fads and put them in completely unrelated videos.  So it's a swirling cycle of retardation that can be completely hilarious when you're extremely bored.  One of my personal favorites involves an excellent rugrats clip:
I'm actually impressed that I found the original, there tends to be so many of these that the original becomes completely lost.  Now here's fad versions of the above clip:

While hilarious, you can see how this gets out of hand extremely quickly.  That's about all you need to know about youtube fads, there's really so many of them and the popular ones keep changing.  Attempting to list them all would be madness. 

One thing I've always wondered though is, who exactly makes these?  I mean, I imagine making one of these requires at least some skill with a video editor, but maybe I'm thinking people are using stuff like Sony Vegas to make these when in all likelihood they're just using iMovie.  I also wonder how much time it takes to make these, I can't imagine someone devoting more than an hour of their life making something so pointlessly hilarious.

But anyway, there you go, have fun exploring youtube fads, but try not to drive yourself insane.

This is what I'm talking about

Stick fights at their finest
Great animation, choreography, audio syncing, and humor, definitely a good watch, I kinda wish fight scenes in movies looked more like this.

Animator vs. Animation...3!

Wow I had no idea they made a third one, and this one is easily the best.  I've always liked stick fight animations (when they're good) and this series is really clever with the concept.  Xiao Xiao was one of the first ones to start this stick fight craze and it seems to be pretty popular.

Webcomic Recommendation

Ok so once a week I'm going to be recommending one of the webcomics I love to read and I start off with the brilliant Lackadaisy Cats by Tracy Butler.  I'm so excited I can't contain myself  :3
 The art in this comic is absolutely amazing and the attention to detail not only in character expressions but in historical context never ceases to amaze me.  The plotline is very good too and the characters are so endearing you'll almost wish you could see them in real life (from behind a glass cage at least, most of these characters are either insane, dangerous, or both and I love that about them). 

The comic is set in the 1927 prohibition period and the artist makes sure to get every detail right, from the cars to the bars everything really feels 1920.  The comic itself doesn't update that often (I'm sure it's due to the insane amount of work involved in each page) but there's plenty of artwork and side comics to keep yourself entertained in the gallery.  I highly highly recommend reading this comic.

Extremely Detailed Artwork
Endearing Characters
Unique art style really delivers facial expressions
strong plotline
great gallery for extra comics, artwork, and backgrounds

Doesn't update very often (like once or twice a month)

Overall this comic (as a webcomic) gets a 9.5/10 from me.  If published purely as a paperbound comic this would get a 10/10 from me.

It sounds almost synthesized the way he's playing it.  I'm always amazed at the things people can do with instruments.

too much

this is too adorable

Pure Genius

I swear this guy is some sort of wizard.  His skills in stop motion are magical, I recommend checking out the rest of his videos, he has some great fight sequences.

Artist Recommendation: Renard Queenston

I discovered this guy's work a year or so ago and I've fallen in love with it.  Most of the stuff he puts out I like.  He releases ALOT of free tracks too and posts alot of songs on youtube.  He has a persona for each of the genres he dabbles in but most of the stuff focuses on beats and synthesized sounds.  I personally love his chiptunes persona and game to most of the music:

He just released a new album called "A picture of finn farting".  If that doesn't give you a picture of how much awesome this is, I don't know what will...o wait, the album is technically free too. 

This album is actually a little more "Pop" then I'd like, but the beats are still good.  The website for his label is and you can find most of his albums there at a "name your price" rate.  I highly recommend checking it out.

John Stewart vs. Bill O'reilly

This is amazing, stuff like this really makes me respect John Stewart as much more than a comedian.

Cheese for days

I really love this guy's tales videos, the combos he makes up are beautiful and it just makes me wish I had the japanese versions of these games even more.

First post, let's get this started

So the basic idea here is, I'm going to post the latest and best that I've found on the internet so you don't have to browse for it.  Whenever I come across something amazing I'll be sure to let you know about it.  I'll also give commentary on various things that catch my eye and give reviews for new stuff in technology and gaming.  My goal is to always have something new and entertaining on my front page, so here we gooooooooo:
