Happy Monday! I released the first in what I think will be a long series for WeGame.

A simple, silly idea that I hope takes off. I'm working on the next one now.

I discovered recently that Facebook has a 5000 friend cap. Even though I am no where near to reaching 5000 friends, I decided to open up a Facebook "Comedian" page for Oxhorn. So if you are my friend on Facebook, be sure to go to my new Comedian page and become a "fan", since there is no caps for fans. I'll be updating it with new news often.

I will start releasing last year's Oxhorn Brand Movies on YouTube in the following weeks. I released Inventing Swear Words 4 yesterday. In less than 24 hours, it's already racked up over 11,000 views and has achieved a number of honors, including:

  • #17 – Most Discussed Today – Comedy
  • #28 – Most Viewed Today – Comedy
  • #81 Top Favorited Today (overall)
  • #18 – Top Favorited Today – Comedy
  • #54 – Top Rated Today (overall)
  • #14 – Top Rated Today – Comedy

You can see a screenshot of all honors here.

What is perplexing about this is how many people think that I am releasing it for the first time. Every other comment is, "Yay, you finally released ISW4!" I mean, I put a bloomin' trailer up on my YouTube account when I released the movie a YEAR ago and all 40,000 of my subscribers were notified. What more does a guy have to do!? Well, hopefully the movie will pick up steam on YouTube and, with the WeGame banners and links to the movie on WeGame, drive traffic to the site.

I made a gallery on Flickr of my pipe collection and my Figure Prints collection, which you can see here:

I said a long time ago that if anyone bought some of my shirts and sent me some pics, I'd put them on my main page. I'm true to my word! This one comes from, Kitkat on MySpace:

Fan-girls rock.

That's it for this week! As always, you can follow me on Twitter for my moment-by-moment updates and watch all my new movies on my channel at WeGame. Here is last week's video review:

Happy Tuesday! Missed Monday--oops! Oh well. You'll learn to forgive me.

I released a new music video last week for Left 4 Dead, which you can watch here:

I also made a new animated WeGame slide just for kicks, which you can download and use in your movies here:

I've written two new blog posts:

Happiness be the state of being I wish for you on the commencement of this week in February, starting on that day named after our moon, in modern English derived from Anglo-Saxon, its name being, with all due expediency, Monday.

I'm pressing hard against the grinding stone and should have this new music video done in a day or two. Here is a screenshot.

I'll post a link to the finished movie here next Monday, or you can follow me on Twitter or FriendFeed and be notified when it is done.

I completely revamped the video review with new animated section titles and new graphics. Dat, WeGame's awesome Photoshop virtuoso, did all the still overlays for it—thanks a bunch Dat!

I took down my Delicious link to the left because I just don't use Delicious. Looks like I'm starting to reel in my social networking net.

I discovered World of Goo, a new game on Steam which I've been having loads of fun playing. You'll beat it pretty quickly, but, if your insane like me, you'll spend a lot of time in the game's side meta-game, where you'll compete with other players to build the world's tallest tower of goo. It's probably a good thing that I never decided to become an architect. I can't get my tower past 26 meters.

We had loads of fun at the Wegame TF2 game day last weekend. One of our users, DelboyDylan, made a video of it which you can watch here:

Here's a pic of Gorndt in his after-work clothes. Perfect for future burns (hint, hint):
