Ed,

The little girl was super cute, my wife and I were both laughing. The second video was also very funny and I loved the ladies facial expression at the end.

Yes, it's about cruelty to vegetables! :D

Wow, I have a lot of them, so here's a few from my bookmarks. I have a liking for machinima films, so many of them are.

It's safe for work, made from World of Warcraft. The song is from a Broadway musical called Avenue Q.

A Few Good GMen Not so funny, but it's the famous court scene from A Few Good Men re-enacted with Half-Life 2 characters.

And for the last big joke ... first, an explanation for those who may not know. (Really, it's not funny without the backstory). I'm sure you've all heard about the Tom Cruise video that was made for recruiting new Scientologists. In response, a bunch of people on the internet formed an anonymous protest group, so creatively named Anonymous. They made a

. In the end, I think it's kinda silly. So do the Pastafarians.

OK, Tom Cruise is a creepy-eyed moron, but the real question is this: What's with the bad 70s porn soundtrack on that video?

LARP?

Wuzzat?

Live Action Role Playing.

I remember when I was younger that my friends and I would just go outside and play cowboys and indians or warriors. We never had such elaborate costumes and it did not matter as we used our imagination. At this time I cannot say whether these people are just having fun or whether they have gone way overboard. But to spend that much of one's time acting like you are someone and somewhere you are not seems a little weird.

Live Action Role Playing: it is where people take video game rpgs or some kind of pen and paper rpg and they act it out in groups, using costumes, scripts, etc. It is very creepy because these people should have outgrown that stuff when they were 12... I'm not sure why, but when I see a 20+ year old 'man' wearing a dwarf costume and carrying a plastic battle-axe while fighting epic make believe battles in the forest with his friends, I just can't help but think these people aren't 100% devoted to reality.

I would just like to point out, seeing as I'm acting in a Renaissance faire this summer with people who have been doing that sort of thing for many years, that what you've described here is very different than what they do. While they'll be spending all day immersed in the past and channelling their characters, they're not play-acting, they're acting-acting. I know my fellow players well, and outside of performances they're definitely not playing out fantasy games. You can't create a good performance without being devoted to reality. I'll admit that they're kinda weird, but in a good way (and no worse than me :D.

There is one thing they do that I can't really speak of in this regard: once a year in western Pennsylvania there is something run by the Society for Creative Anachronism called Pennsic War, a huge, two-week event that resembles a Renaissance faire but involves much more role-play and less acting, because everyone who attends pretty much stays in character the whole time, not just a specified set of actors. I've never attended, but my older son goes every year, and based on his descriptions there are two main points to the thing: First there are those who have a genuine interest in knowledge of the period, who study and develop skills of the time such as music, crafts, food, weaponry & fighting skills, etc. Second, one of the unofficial slogans is ... well ... "if ye canna get laid at Pennsic War ye canna get laid at all" - it's a gigantic party. So, while no doubt some there are like the guy with the dwarf costume and plastic battle-axe, my guess is that that kind is likely to be laughed off the grounds by a crowd of folks wearing detailed period garb and carrying finely crafted rapiers, tankards full of mead or ale, and besotted tavern wenches.

I played a bit of DnD in high school, but the main attraction for me was just the time hanging out with my friends. Many fond memories of dice rolling, hot pockets and pop tarts. :D

My boyfriend is in the SCA (I just go to the events and meetings to hang out, technically not a member), and while we have never been to Pennsic, we have a good friend who goes every year. SCA does historical re-enactment, but mostly it's getting together with friends to make armor or fencing gear (not exactly fencing, it's rapier fighting), or pretty dresses for girls. My boyfriend is a heavy fighter. There are all sorts of other weapons available - pole arms and siege weapons, to name a few. I just wear a pretty dress and watch the men beat each other up.

Unlike LARPers, they have a full grasp of reality. No magic missiles or lightning bolts - or dwarfs, wizards, ogres, or anything else silly. There's combat rules according to the weapon - if a mace hits you pretty much anywhere, you are dead and have to leave the field. The heavy fighters get quite bruised up and they don't seem to mind. I think that they just like to beat each other up ... :D

There is a lot of character breaking in conversation. At events, I change into my garb (a pretty, form-fitting dress) from the time I arrive and change into my normal clothes when I leave the event or pajamas to go into the tent for the night. I love being in a pretty dress and helping to cook time-period food. I find the SCA events fun to do on a few weekends and I like hanging out with the friends I've made there. The feasts and parties are great fun, too. :D
