HOLY CRAP THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR THIS SONG.
(“Muppets Most Wanted” spoilers)
Depression Quest designer Zoe Quinn joined me to talk about the Internet, and how we can make things just a tiny bit better.
This panel happened at PAX last weekend. It was made by, and given for the video game industry, but I really hope that it can reach people in the comic book industry. The two industries are so similar and deal with so many of the same problems. Given the discussion in comics the last few days (and, like most of the time the last few years), I think this is super relevant.
Patrick and Zoe talk about their personal histories with internet harassment and threats, and the steps they’ve been taking to try and turn it around. They have both actually done a lot of work engaging the people doing the harassment and people who WERE harassers, and finding out a lot about those mindsets and how to change them.
Finally! My favourite Homer scene! I’ve recited this whole speech at the drop of a hat.
I went out to New York just before PAX to speak at NYU’s Game Center. In some ways it serves as a nice counterbalance to the wrestling-filled shenanigans that went down in Boston. Thanks to James Marion for moderating! I had a great time doing it and would certainly be down to do more stuff like this in the future.
This is really cool. It’s like a live Jar Time!
Maybe my favourite Muppets bit of all time.
I seriously continue to wonder if this ever really happened and it wasn’t one of the greatest fever dreams. If this isn’t the best thing I’ve seen in my 5+ years following Giant Bomb, it’s pretty fucking close.
I’m still in awe of this whole thing.
