Good Monday! We have a multiple-course update this week complete with red wine and desert. It may not be filet mignon, but it is at least a hefty rib-eye steak smothered in A1 sauce. And cheese.

I've released episode two of my new series, Dynamic Action Team!

If you missed it last week, you can watch episode 1 here:

Head on over to the forums and let me know what you think. I've also reached a few landmarks this week, breaking the 1 million views mark on WeGame:

  • Over 1 million views on WeGame
  • Over 16 million on YouTube
  • Over 27,000 subscribers on YouTube

Things keep growing, which is great! Guess I didn't make enough people mad with IPU.

Speaking of which, I just published a new blog article which responds to viewers' responses to my own response to IPU.

We have some fan art this week from Zealsha, who drew a picture of what Dead-cowbies possibly look like... as adults. Thanks Zealsha!

That's it for this week! As always, you can keep tabs on my day-to-day movie progress via my Twitter page, chat with me on the forums and browse all my movies on WeGame. Here is last week's video review:

Splendid Monday every-peoples! I hope things are going swimmingly in and with your every which-way and fancy.

Our good Rothicol has uploaded a recording of himself singing my song “The Great Kodo”. Check it out here, and give him props!

I've started a new series using Team Fortress 2 called “Dynamic Action Team”. I just released Episode 01 today. My goal is to release a new episode every week. I will still be making WoW machinima, but less often. I hope to make a Christmas special this year, like I've done for the past three years. You can watch episode 01 of my new series here:

Many thanks to everyone who keeps submitting burns, participating in our weekly contests,a nd who showed up for the TF2 match last Saturday.

Happy Tuesday! Looks like I am a day late for an update. I'll punish myself by playing the space stage of Spore tonight.

Kidding.

One of my characters has been placed as an NPC in World of Warcraft! Thanks to everyone who has sent me screenshots telling me about it. Mortuus, my undead guy from my Inventing Swear Words series, appears as a quest giving NPC with a pail in his hand and a miners cap on in Blizzard's latest expansion. Check out the picture here:

I'm humbled that Blizzard made a reference in their game to my movies. I've got to say that, from machinima booths at Blizzcon to Wrath of the Lich King Beta invites to this, the Blizzard people have shown themselves to be really, really cool to me, so thanks Blizzard. They also made a reference to our good Olibith by placing one of his characters in the expansion as well, which you can read about on Olibith's blog:

Response to my latest movie has been great! Thanks all for posting
comments about my movie and sharing it with your friends. I'm working on another project right now. It isn't WoW related, but it should still be funny. I'll post it here when I get it done.

Fans have been sending me all sorts of pictures, and it is about time I shared a few:

Thanks a bunch! If you have any fan art or burns for Jeff, you can send them to me at brandon AT WeGame DOT com.

Despite the way I opened this post, I am actually really enjoying the space stage of Spore. Here are some cool Spore videos on the site:

Lastly, many people have asked for the new WeGame slide I used at the end of my latest movie. Here it is, for any who want it:

My new movie is done apart from the music. Nathan is working really hard on making a cool score for the movie. I'll probably release it next week, which will give me the time to fine-tune the thing.

The machinima contest is over, and we have 120 submissions! I have been watching them and judging them all day. This will take me a long time, but I'll have it done in time for the video review next week, when we will announce the winners. In the mean time, head on over and watch the entries, and let us know which ones you like best!
