May 09
Ah man! I love Honda. Not E. Honda. Just Honda. Great lawnmowers. I also love videogame fan films. Watching them feels kind of like eating 3 pints of Ben and Jerry's in one sitting. Wrong but tasty. Guilty but satisfying. Also, Ken's hair. [inhales deeply] Ken's hair. I HAVE to see this series. Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist officially debuts on May 23 on the main Machinima channel. read

Machinima teases (fake) Angry Birds movie trailer


Dec 07
All I want for Christmas is for this Machinima trailer to be for a real movie. Sadly it isn't, which I think is a shame. Don't worry though, there is an Angry Birds movie in the works. It just isn't an homage to Snatch (the movie, you perverts). Seriously though, this is an amazing idea, and while I have less than no desire to see the real Angry Birds movie, I would go watch this movie. Twice. read
