I’m taking the day off. Please enjoy this movie I made a couple of years ago:

    Man, I never get tired of watching that. Enjoy taking the day off!

  2. maehara says:

    Ah, an oldie but goodie.

    Although – I’m surprised to feel beholden to tell us you’re not going to make a “real” post. If you want / need a day away from your faithful readership, just go – I certainly won’t hold it against you, and the wonders of RSS will tell us when you’re back.

    Enjoy the break!

    I am wondering.. seriously, how horrible masters we are to our creations..

    Is God allowed to torture us for his fun merely because he created us? If not, if that is not acceptable, how immoral are we toward our own creations?

  4. Greg says:

    …but why does it have music reminding me of how much of my life I’m spending watching funny videos?

    I’m going to go and contemplate my own mortality now.

    Dude, lighten up. It’s a funny video – no more than that.

  6. Factoid says:


    In other news…did Youtube change their offsite player AGAIN?! Seriously they change the look of this thing like every other week. Almost as frequently as itunes updates.

  7. Eric Meyer says:

    Rock ’em sock ’em fun! And for those of us who remember the saga of the nerfherder who wrote you to claim he’d created that video and demand you pull down your copy, the memories are extra-fun.

    “Rock “˜em sock “˜em fun! And for those of us who remember the saga of the nerfherder who wrote you to claim he'd created that video and demand you pull down your copy, the memories are extra-fun.”

    Yep, I remember that. And remembering that makes me feel even older still :(

    Hey, I know. It’s simply something I think from time to time when I torture my own Sim-civilians :D

  10. bloopy says:

    on a totally unrelated topic, fyi the other day i noticed that the full dr. horrible webisode is up on hulu.com (which is actually a totally legit site – i think NBC is a part owner). . .

  11. Rick Tacular says:

    Doggone it! Now I have to clean off coffee from my screen and keyboard! =P

  12. Grant says:


    I noticed that…. it was how I actually got to see Dr. Horrible for the first time, as I went out of town just as they pulled it down.

  13. Avaz says:

    Has it really been that long since you first posted this? Wow, I’ve been following this blog for longer than I thought. :D Nice!

  14. Davesnot says:

    I still have this as a youtube favorite.. and pull it out whenever I need a pick-me-up.. Thank you for sharing your … uh.. skills.

    And… yeah.. that clown that claimed you stole it.. beaten into submission by the mob.. and forced to apologize.. and our beloved master had to call off the hounds.. good times….. and now you’re older still.

    “Views: 1,868,939”
    “View all 3,889 comments”

    Really… wow, that’s a lot!

  16. Elewir says:

    LOL! Man, that never gets old. :-D

  17. Nick Pitino says:

    “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.”

    YouTube hates me apparently.

    I do remember seeing this in the past though, most amusing.

  18. Zukhramm says:

    Nick Pitino, just relode the page, that happens to me all the time.

  19. ryanlb says:

    That video never gets old.

  20. Illiterate says:

    Take a vacation, Shamus. relax your brain a bit.

    Feature GTA4 or Postal or something similarly cathartic in your next stolen pixels. It’ll give you an excuses to play a little.

    For extra credit, take your little “anonymous poster” avatars (featured to the right of the d20) and turn them into enemies.

  21. Kevin says:

    I laughed so hard the first time I watched it. I still chuckle over it today.

    Of course I recorded it first… ;-)

  22. Mari says:

    Heh, hungry for a little fanboy smackdown, eh? ;-)

    Wow, though, I didn’t realize it had been that long since you first posted the vid. Kind of makes me feel old. Then again, breathing makes me feel old these days.

  23. As the creator of this video I demand…

    oh wait, has this joke been done?

  24. Kizer says:

    Hey shamus, hope you have a good day off. I have a link to an amazing web video, I think you’d like it. Would it be better to post the link here as a comment, or email it to you? Or is there a better way? It’s a legit movie, you may have seen it already. And it never fails to make me happy, much like your rollarcoaster video.

  25. MONKEEYYY says:

    @bloopy: Thanks!

  26. Joshua says:

    Meh, this is old news. I saw this video a few years ago. Some blogger guy posted it on his blog and said it was his (lie).

  27. Zukhramm says:


    Link to it here, nothing wrong with letting us see the video too.

  28. Heph says:

    Hmm, for some reason I don’t get any sound. Too bad, as TMBG have some nice songs :-(

  29. Zaxares says:

    To #3 – SolkaTruesilver:

    Why do you think natural disasters exist? :P

  30. niall says:

    Shamus, link is broken for latest comic…

  31. Shamus says:

    niall: Thanks for the heads up!


  32. Spam says:

    Ah, the joys of murdering hundreds of ballon holding sims..gotta love it!

  33. Mixmastermind says:


    Yes, God is allowed to torture us for his own fun. Why do you think Tornadoes hit trailer parks so much?

  34. Adam says:

    That is AWESOME. I’ve got to try that!
