Angry Birds make Phil angry (kinda)

A few weeks ago, I got a note from my pal Brian Brushwood (via Ashley Paramore and, somehow, Veronica Belmont; the actual email path was Möbius-like) asking if I'd like to be a part of a short, funny video about Angry Birds Space for his videocast "Game On!"

Not being an idiot, I said yes. Here's the result.

I had fun filming this! Angry Birds is evil and addicting and I don't recommend downloading it unless you like evil and addicting games, which of course I do.

Sadly, "Game On!" was canceled. But the good news is that:

a) Veronica is now doing the show "Sword and Laser" with Tom Merrit on Felicia Day's Geek and Sundry channel on YouTube, and

2) Brian has a book out, "Scam School", which I've been perusing and is both very funny and highly, highly evil*. It's all about tricks and puzzles and brain teasers you can pull in bars to win free drinks off people (it also has the amazing super-cooled beeer thing in it). I'm really enjoying it, and you will too if you buy it. And you should.

Thanks to Brian for having me on the show!
