Here’s our Jon Stewart Facial Expression of the day from his bit about Charlie Rose’s interview with Syria’s President Assad from this clip. Apologies to anyone watching this on a tablet or mobile device because Comedy Central uses the flash media player which doesn’t work on mobile devices. Not sure when they are going to get their shit together.

Muhammad from the Syrian Electronic Army authored this post.
Hello. For now my name is “Muhammad” and I represent the Syrian Electronic Army and we have permanently taken over the esteemed news and information site known as HarryBalls.com. We are tired of the one sided western media reporting of the Syrian internal situation so we seized HarryBalls.com, America’s decadent and popular symbol of western oil driven greed, to present our objective and just side of the our story. For our first post we have interviewed the new Yahoo logo. (more…)
Do you know what a “Redshirt” is? You know the guys who always wind up dying on the away missions in Star Trek? Those unfortunate bastards are the Redshirts, the lower ranked personnel who sacrifice themselves so the ships officers can live on to appear in more episodes.
We have come across two pieces of culture using the name Redshirts. John Scalzi, a Hollywood California based author wrote Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas about low level ensigns who begin investigate why their similarly dressed colleagues die while the ship’s officers always survive missions. Its a funny premise and great book.
Equally funny but different is the new pc video game shockingly called Redshirts, created by The Tiniest Shark Game Studio and published by Positech Games. Some simulation strategy video game fans may know of Positech from their previous titles like Gratuitous Space Battles, Gratuitous Tank Battles, Democracy 2, and Kudos 2. Folks can pre-order Redshirts for their PC now priced at $19.95.
The Redshirts video game takes place on a space station called Megaladon 9 where personnel schmooze their way to the top positions using the vessels Facebook equivalent called Spacebook. You can friend folks, like their posts, schedule work related as well as socials events with all activities designed to increase your Charisma rank which is the only rank that matters. You may have to unfriend people or some how make them hate you to gain favor with others. Each Spacebook driven social media activity will affect your charisma rank differently. We will let you figure out that on your own but if you are as socially awkward as our team you are screwed.
The humor comes from the messages posted on different screens that sometimes scroll by too quickly to digest. Redshirts the game has fantastic entertainment potential. We would like to see the developers turn Redshirts into a episode web series.
We came across this very funny web series about Teachers created by Matt Miller and the Katydids, a Chicago based sketch comedy troupe. Teachers highlights the sometimes inappropriate and wild conversations teachers have with their colleagues, students and the parents. Its hilarious and very funny.
