Graham Vs. Matt: The Saga Continues!

or maybe that should be Sega continues...
'cause you can press a button to continue if you are playing a sega game...

Saga. Sega. They sound similar but mean different things.

It's funny.

Shut up.

First response!

EDIT: And I'm glad I shamelessly did that prior to actually watching the video. It's certainly a video full of humour I can both appreciate and understand :lol:

Loving ye olde friende telecom system, excellent choice of players for the parts!

Paul portrays a corpse a lot, like in Pwn'd, The Aftermath, Ways to hide a Body, etc.

Holy crap, you guys have a small kitchen... either that, or Matt's seriously gained weight, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt :P

Nice video guys! Nothing stood out as particularly ROFL-worthy to me, but I had a solid chuckle going throughout the entire video, so that's always nice.

Paul totally stole the video with his exceptional acting.
Also, fullscreening works again.

This video didn't make me laugh as much as other videos. The first minute twenty was pretty funny. The rest was less lively, but I did guffaw at the very last scene. The story was very good.

It's a survival thing. See, Paul looks so much like Gordon Freeman that the guys think he has some of his "staying-alive kung-fu" (meaning, in any given situation, he'd be the only one to live), so they make themselves feel better by having him portray the dead guy.

And great video. It didn't make me lol (it's rather hard to, really, but you did it with most of Max Effect), but I thought the jokes were still rather funny.

I also love how you had Graham do the "Honey, I'm home!" thing instead of Matt (who, according to Graham, does it every time he comes home).

Matt and Graham just have to bitch-slap it out... That would be really funny to watch.

Wow, I finally got to see a video before the view counter got over 50.

Pretty good video. I like the line, "Matt, are you using all the internets?"

Question for Ash: What's up with the hoodie? Why's it say AFK on the fron then have Jack Skelengton on the back? It looks pretty cool, I just don't get it.

I like to think of LRR as having two different types of vids. Those that have me chuckling most or all of th way, and those that have rofl moments interspaced. It seems to be going more the first way lately, which is rad cause those vids are the kind I can still laugh about even after knowing the punchline.

I'm not done yet because, ironically enough, my internets are slow because of others. Sharing your interwebs with 20 thousand other people sucks, cuz they are so inconsiderate. I need to watch my LRR, goddamnit.

As for apartment stuff, I'm getting the internet hooked up for my own use in my apartment. I don't have to share it with anyone.

Wait, Jer is driving now???!!??!!?? I thought he couldn't because of his condition. Not the one you are thinking of, the one with his eyes.

It's always been my understanding that Bandwidth is just a fancy term for processing potential devoted to routing and managing data transfer. If we build enough computers with enough processing power with enough wires between them all and program them all properly, would it be possible to reach a plateau of bandwidth potential which is far above realistic needs?

Just curious.

Well I wouldn't say it was particularly rofl-worthy, as misty put it, but definitely entertaining; I love seeing a little story for 5 minutes every week.

A technical question: How'd you light the scene with Jer waking up? Was it a high contrast from the light on the wall ->turn down the iris, or what? Just thought it looked really nice.

Yes, but it would be prohibitively expensive, and probably consume a good 70% of Earth's total natural resources.

[edit]Also, it wouldn't take long until even that vast amount of bandwidth was used. Remember: Data will expand to consume all available storage space. The same is true for internet bandwidth.

I had to stop the video right after Graham said "frozen peas" until I quit laughing. Or at least it had subsided enough so I could compose myself & restart the video. It seemed longer than usual but that's fine because I enjoyed it even more than usual.

By the way, who is in the photograph Graham & the neighbor are downloading... (ah, I remember the days of my laptop's 14K dialup)

This was seriously one of the funniest videos.

The Tiny Tim reference was hilarious.

I love it.
