Game On!

The Guild is my favorite web series on the net (actually, it's the only one I watch), and am excited to say that they just put out a new music video to follow up the one they did last year - and it is equally as brilliant.

It's called Game On.

<a href="http://video.msn.com/?mkt=en-us&from=sp&fg=shareEmbed&vid=8cb424dc-cbdb-40be-90c5-8fb450462d2f" target="_new" title="Season 4 - Music Video - "Game On"">Video: Season 4 - Music Video - "Game On"</a>

I am a huge fan of Felicia Day - her work is so fun and clever - I never can get enough. Plus she's a good actress. It also helps that Wil Wheaton has been added to the cast. He's another dear favorite of mine.

Last year's video, for your viewing pleasure, is Do You Want to Date my Avatar.

The Guild is on its 4th season now, and today is it's 3rd birthday. So Happy Birthday to The Guild! Congrats on your success in the world of the Internets.

Home Duvet: Cardboard Bedding for the Not-So-Homeless

Described by Dutch by Design as "the Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn't have to!"

This duvet cover is designed by Peggy van Neer. The photographic print is produced on the cotton directly, so it will stay crisp after washing. Though I suppose if you never wash it, it would make it look and smell even more authentic... (Har, har.)

Dutch by Design donates 30% of gross profits of all sales of the Home Duvet to Centrepoint, the UK charity for homeless young people aged 16-25 (charity number 29241), which is pretty darn cool. Unfortunately, the pillows are sold separately. Proceeds from those also contribute to the charity.

As I personally have no desire to decorate in homeless-style faux-cardboard, I won't be purchasing this particular duvet, but it was too interesting an item not to share it. Sweet dreams!

Isaiah Mustafa of Old Spice Tweets Back

Anyone who watches television is likely to have seen the amazingness of the Old Spice commercials starring Isaiah Mustafa. They are clever, albeit strange, and quite funny. They are some of the few commercials I actually enjoy (along with the Capital One Visigoth commercials. Hilarious). Now the Old Spice icon has moved beyond commercials and is actually personally replying to tweets via YouTube. He even made a marriage proposal on behalf of one tweeter (which she, of course, accepted).

The Old Spice YouTube Channel has all the commercials and the tweet replies. Love, love, love. ♥

Chopstick Kitty... And Maru.

Quite possibly one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. Almost as cute as Maru the Cat. (I don't know that any cat will ever top Maru in awesomeness.)


Seriously. Too. Damn. Cute.

Now I feel inclined to include a link to Maru's youtube channel, since I don't believe he's made it into a blog mention thus far (for shame).

OMG I'm a Maru cat. Meow.

And maybe a video too.

The only thing better than Maru jumping into the box... is Maru jumping out again.
