@HulkHanson: That's awesome! I hope you come back and talk more about your experience once the episodes air.
Here's a shot of me in Revolution. I'm the guy being shaved. My mom, who watches the show, recognized me without my saying anything. Pretty cool! I failed to grab a better screen before the episode was removed from Hulu.
Since then, I've worked on the show several more times, though I can't talk about any of that until March. All of the actors are really nice, which makes working with them more fun. I've decided not to write detailed posts of my experiences until the stuff is released on disc. I've also done stand-in work for Bryan Greenberg on an upcoming feature film.
I've met a lot of awesome people and hope to work a lot more this year. I really want to work on Homeland, though we'll see how that actually goes!
@DarthOrange: That sounds like a fun experience. Do you ever think about the process now when watching other shows? I tend to stare at the extras a lot more in stuff now.
And I must know more about these masturbation jokes.
The only reason I use it is because of audio ads that play automatically. These ads pop up the most for me on YouTube when I'm watching a video. I'm about talking about ads on the right side of the page, not the video itself. I'll be watching a video and start wondering why the audio suddenly sounds weird, only to minimize it and discover that there's some commercial playing on the side. I don't understand why Google allows that shit.
I originally wrote this post a few months ago and am just now getting around to posting it up.
My brother and I got the "Storyteller" trophy in Batman: Arkham City this Labor Day, along with everyone else who got the game before Halloween 2011 and didn't cheat by setting their clocks ahead. Not that I have anything against people who do that (that would be crazy), but it's not something I do. I found it more fun to set reminders on Google Calendar for every major holiday of each month and play the game then. It also gave me an excuse to boot up Arkham City every once in a while.
The Storyteller trophy/achievement is where you, Batman, have to go into the bottom floor of the courthouse and speak with Calendar Man on specific holidays, resulting in him describing a crime he committed on that holiday in the past. The game uses the internal clock of whatever system you're playing on, so if you play the game on Christmas (or tell your system that it's Christmas by setting the clock manually instead of through the internet), Calendar Man will tell you a story about a crime he committed on Christmas. It's a cool Easter egg that gets you some good, violent stories and a trophy/achievement.
Arkham City isn't the first game to use a console's clock to trigger special events like this, but it's one of the best uses I've seen. I know that Animal Crossing does this to a much larger extent, too.
Did anyone else bother getting this achievement? Did you do it in real-time or did you change the clock? What other cool uses of this mechanic have you seen?
I've had this blog favorited for several months now and have finally read it this Christmas day. I love colorful food with faces like this, so I probably would have eaten multiple ones, regardless of the blandness.
