What's New?

What's Going On? My YouTube Debut

It was just about 10 years ago when we jumped on the internet bandwagon, embracing the exciting new technology as the perfect way to get our ideas out there, and to offer our products to everyone everywhere. We embraced the new medium, creating a weekly webzine with our friends, updating it with content which would later become known by words like blogs and webcomics. And as a result, you can now read the story of the last ten years of my life, in weekly installments!

But times have changed and technology has advanced, and this week I took my first little step into the giant leap of a whole new world of webcontent: I posted a little movie I made on YouTube.

It's nothing amazing -- I just set up a video camera on a tripod and yammered into it -- but even so, I think it marks the beginning of a whole new phase of my life. I'm becoming a VideoBlogger!

As with text blogging, some video-bloggers post a new entry every day, some more than once per day, others weekly or simply at whatever random intervals when new material justifies it. For now, I'm only promising to do one new video per week, for the new LooneyNews feature "Ask Andy" in which I'll provide answers to tricky questions like my first entry (which deals with a tricky Hand Limit situation in Fluxx).

But as I get more into it, I plan to post new videos more often than weekly. Daily seems a bit too ambitious though, so it'll probably be several per week. I've got a half a dozen other little clips finished, so bookmark the Ask Andy archive page and check back often to see what other films I post in the coming days and weeks!

AndyThanks for reading, and thanks for watching!

Have a Great Week!

"Andy Looney has been on our interview wish list for a long time and winds up to be as excellent as expected. Andy has a great sense of humor and makes excellent conversation. Looney Labs games are awesome games for the family and has kept us entertained for years." -- Pulp Gamer's description of Andy's Podcast interview

Thought Residue
For his birthday last week I gave my 10 year old nephew a replica of the classic Star Trek communicator (to go with the phaser I gave him last year when he first got into the original Trek series). Of course, he immediately did what everyone always does, which is to flip it open and bark into it, "Beam Me Up Scotty!" But of course, Scotty never responds, and you end up just standing there, looking foolish. What this toy really needs is a button you can press to get Scotty's voice saying "Sorry Cap'n, the transporters are still malfunctioning!" Then this situation would have a proper punchline!

"But a child could not be a flower child." -- a line from the Dan Hart song Summer of Love, which captures beautifully my own memories of (and feelings about) being very young during the Sixties
"Because there's no such thing as too much cute." -- tagline from the back of the box of a PS2 videogame called Horsez, which I gave my 10 year old niece for Christmas last month
