At least one of the jokes was literally over my head.

I just thought about something. Has James been almost everything a kindergartner wants to be EXCEPT a fireman?

He WANTED to be a fireman in Pimp My Chair, right?

You're entitled. I could express my opinion, but then I'd feel weird since you're his girlfriend and all.

I'm sorry Tally, but as awesome as Jer is, he can't compare to Harrison Ford, and thus shall never be as good looking a Han Solo as, well, Han Solo.

He did look awesome though, just in comparison he looks less. I force myself to imagine him as ANOTHER, original, smuggler.

Tally, you have seen Friends right? The One with Ross's fantasy? AKA Rachel as Slave Leia?

You realize this question is pretty much the photo-negative of that right?

Quite good, quite good. Helps that I hate Twitter in general, but the simple "I AM A BIG POOP" got a big laugh from me.

Also, the little dance thing at the end was great.

Jer did indeed look hot.

What, is a straight man the only one willing to answer honestly?

Seriously, though. What the hell happened to Morgan? Did he leave looking for God and find Green Day instead?

If it hadn't been for the inherit man crush that seemingly ever LRRite develops, I wouldn't have recognized him.

Hmm the visual style reminds me of something I've seen at one of the Chaos Communication Conferences. There were pairs of people, one having a wireless keyboard, the other one having a rucksack with batteries and a laptop, as well as a projector and a "speech bubble" back-projected screen. I think there were at least 2 teams and I believe somewhere out there there's even a video of them talking to eachother.

I know a couple whose main form of communication is twitter. I should show them this video. I loved the passive-aggressive comments; they were spot on.

YAY MORGAN'S BACK!!!!1

Am I the only person that didn't actually notice Morgan initially: it was only when looking through the cast list and realising that I hadn't seen Ray anywhere in the video, that I noticed that Morgan was there too... Should I feel ashamed? :(

Oh, good video btw: a very interesting premise well executed :)

I thought that the reason everyone could read the Tweets was that they are all actually his friends, but Jer's character is just so into Twittering that he doesn't care. Like when he and James' character are in line for the concert and James replies? I found it more funny to imagine they are all his real life friends, but he's got a Twitter addiction or something.

And poor Tally - always playing the gf to guys who are addicted to computer based things!

When I saw Morgan I did a double take and then actually asked my computer "Is that Morgan!?" Yay for Morgan being back!

Do you do the motion tracking in Final Cut, or the 3D program?

He did the motion tracking with Adobe After Effects, I believe. We'll get more in the podcast.

although it seemed to me that she might be a bit too much in into twittering herself in this video, since she doesn't wake him to yeel/argue with him.
On the other side, maybe she knows, that this is the only way to get his attention.

On second thought: poor Tally - always playing the gf to guys who are addicted to computer based things! ;-)

I really need to get into this twitter thing. I just seriously don't see the point. Is it just basically like a facebook status?

It's a hardcore facebook status. If you can't say it in 140 characters, you don't get to say it at all.

I find it's a great way to A. keep in quick contact with people and B. get all the crazy thoughts out of your head.

Way better than Facebook in my opinion, you don't need to make an Evil Dead reference to use Twitter! :D
