I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.
I am a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
I'm not sorry for the things I've said. There's a wild man in my head.
I am two with nature.
I'm a bird who doesn't sing because I have an answer, I sing because I have a song.
I mostly come at night... Mostly.
I'm an alligator, I'm a mama-papa coming for you.
I'm the space invader, I'll be a rock 'n' rollin' bitch for
I'm like, you know... this guy.
You should listen to Communitoid! It's the best podcast ever, except for those other ones that are better.
Hi Destructoid Cblog people! My computer blew up a couple weeks ago, but like Colonel Steve Austin it's been upgraded with new hardware and back in action. So now I can tell you about things I've been doing!
Ben, Rob and I have also started a weekly podcast, creatively titled "Airport Road: The Podcast". Each week we ramble on about geeky stuff and demonstrate a sad amount of knowledge about useless trivia for 90 minutes or so. I have it on good authority that it's the greatest podcast you will ever listen to.
It's been a long time since our last video, so we thought we'd post something showcasing what we've been working on. Since we want to keep the subject matter under wraps until we're ready for the full reveal, we decided to use secret code names like in the spy movies. A few of you might be savvy enough to figure out which game we're covering next; if so please don't ruin the surprise for everyone else! Be content knowing that you have a keen and analytical mind, and were one of the few able to process and link together our subtle clues in order to solve the ingenious mystery we've created for you.
In the first Project Mario vlog, Ben, Rob, and Dude will guide you through the early stages of costume construction, introduce the main characters, and argue with each other about shades of green. I'm not in this video because nobody gave me a ride over to Rob's house after I told people I totally wanted to go but didn't have enough gas to drive myself. So I sat by the phone, waiting for Ben or Dude to call and say "Hey what's up? I'm going to come pick you up because I'm an awesome friend and that's what bros do for each other". But no one ever called. I sat in our empty house alone for the rest of the night. Totally not crying.
Project Mario has undergone multiple evolutions into the final concept, and even though it's taken a while to get here I'm glad we waited for this version. It's inspired everyone to really ramp up the production quality, and we'll be showing you how the work is progressing in future installments of this vlog. This is probably going to be the biggest project we've ever attempted, and if we pull it off there's no doubt in my mind we'll finally realize our dreams of being rich and internet famous.
In other news, Rob, Ben, and I recorded the first episode of Airport Road: The Podcast last night. Going to edit it tonight with Ben and we'll hopefully have it online in a day or two. In it we talk a bit about movies, what games we've been playing, debate who would win in a battle between Godzilla and Cthulhu, recall our history with Destructoid and how we got started in the lucrative internet film making business, and go into further depth about Project Mario. We got a bit carried away, so this episode might run a bit longer than planned. Had a blast recording it, and looking forward to doing the next one!
See that? That's the badge YOU can have proudly displayed above your avatar on the Destructoid Forums!
"But Mxy," you ask yourself. "How can I possibly acquire this? Surely I am not worthy of such majesty! PS: You're an amazingly awesome guy I aspire to be like and assuming I'm a cute chick I want to sex you."
However, you must act now! The cut off for this incredible offer is Friday April 16th. After that, the window of opportunity closes forever. You'll be doomed to an eternity of knowing you could have had everything you ever dreamed, if only you'd made the effort when you had the chance. So what are you waiting for? GO GO GO!
There were a few more things in the box that didn't get featured due to us running out of time to film and editing. I have no idea if we even pronounced Hamza's name right either. Probably not, I don't get much sleep anymore and have no idea what's going on about anything. Regardless, CTZ is the freaking man and this silly video is our way of saying thank you for everything he's done for us over the years. Thanks Robokitty!
PS: LotrO is rad. If anyone else still plays, I'm Mxyrandir on the Brandywine server.
