let's not bring ink & paper into this


Letting y'all know right off the bat - I don't play that April Fools bullsh**.



When someone tries to hand me out a flyer, it's kinda like they're saying, "Here, you throw this away."

Scene Point Blank was the first to point me to the sad-sad-sad news that Minnesota-native comedian Mitch Hedberg was found dead on Wednesday. Howard Stern reported the news yesterday morning, with Defamer & MTV following up with reports of their own later in the day. Local papers the Star Tribune & the Pioneer Press have offered obituaries, and Blogcritics.org, Matt Dentler & Music For Robots each provide their thoughts on the loss as well.

MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Race Car Passenger"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Traffic Lights & Bananas"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Monster Magnet & Jelly Beans"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Pancakes"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Donut"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Fire Exit"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Dufrenes"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Waterfalls"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Wine & Winos"
MP3 Mitch Hedberg - "Movie Pot"

I first saw Mitch on his Comedy Central half-hour special a few years back & really took a liking to him. His odd, stoner-yet-likeable delivery & random, almost stream-of-consciousness jokes grew on me quickly, and I found myself watching his special quite a bit & recommending it to others. Mitch's unique style was a change of pace from most stand-ups, and I became a genuine fan. It is extremely disheartening to hear that he has passed on, and my best wishes go out to his family & friends. The above comedy clips come from his two cd's, 1999's Strategic Grill Locations and 2003's Mitch All Together, which includes the aforementioned special on a bonus DVD. Check out ... (dot dot dot) for more Mitch links & a list of his best quotes.

ETA: Mitch's Comedy Central Presents special will air tonite @ 9pm ET.

ETA (5/11/05): Slate delivers a belated Mitch piece by Sam Anderson (via).



MP3 Bunky - "Funny Like The Moon"
After failing to track it down last week, I have finally been able to listen to Born To Be A Motorcycle, the new album from San Diego boy-girl duo Bunky (that's Bunny + Monkey, btw). Emily Joyce & Rafter Roberts' weird blend of noise-punk, art-pop, and crooning balladry has been previously blogged about by the likes of Fluxblog, *sixeyes & Stereogum, so I'm not covering any new territory here. But in honor of Mitch Hedberg's passing, I thought this sentimental-one-minute, frantic-the-next tune would make for an unusual-yet-fitting tribute to such an original talent. Rest in peace, Mitch.

Sufjan Stevens' label Asthmatic Kitty has more information on Bunky, whose website also offers the following three songs for legal download:

MP3 Bunky - "BaBa"
MP3 Bunky - "Yes/No"
MP3 Bunky - "Chuy"

ETA (4/5/05): MOV Bunky - "BaBa" video (13.8mb)


Robert Smigel & Triumph pal around w/Sam & Janeane on last nite's Majority Report.

As I mentioned before, yesterday was Air America's first anniversary, and there was back-patting & congrats all around amidst the usual shock & awe at the right wing's hipocrisy. Al Franken broadcasted live to a boisterous audience at NYC's Museum of Television & Radio, and Unfiltered did its final show (Jerry Springer takes over Rachel Maddow & Chuck D's timeslot today). Last nite I watched the HBO doc, which provided an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the network's start-up & early struggles. And finally, comedian & Arrested Development "never-nude" David Cross joins Marc Riley & Marc Maron on today's Morning Sedition. As per usual, archived AAR podcasts are available for download from Air America Place.

ETA: Marc Maron lamented Mitch Hedberg's death at the top of his show.

Speaking of Arrested Development, Fox is airing back-to-back episodes of tv's best comedy tonite at 9pm ET, in case you're like me & have no life.

Sin City opens today. What else are you doing with your weekend?

I'm really sad to see that Mitch passed on. He was so funny and a true original. He stole the show when I saw him last year in Minneapolis opening for Lewis Black and Dave Attel. Thanks for indroducing me to his act. I'll miss him.

Its hard to see someone we look up to go to a better place and leave us here behind.. He most definitely was a great addition to the comic aspect of this world.. He was the one we could run into when times were a bit fuzzy, he always enlightened the environment with his unique smile and jokester perks, theres only one and only one.. Mitch Hedberg, we shall miss you :(

Nope. It's also been made a ban-worthy offense since it causes glitches in the game. If you've noticed a clan doing this, go ahead and send Aleenia a PM with the name of the clan, the server, and whether they were originally Human or Karus. She's the one that handles those investigations.

If so, can we expect to have some kind of a rules list, and maybe some rule that will clarify all the "grey areas" as you call them, and that for once and all decide what is legal and what is not?

I hope that I spelled everything right and that youll understand me xD

P Donations and the current form of clan rankings are determined by the developers; they're the ones who made the ranking system, after all. I haven't heard of any plans to change it and, to be honest, I don't see it happening unless they decide to mix up how KOKO's clan rankings work first. I can't see the developers making what would be a huge change to Clans for only KOWorld alone. Still, it couldn't hurt if the players were to open a discussion on the matter and get some suggestions as to other means of handling ranking. The worst the developers can say is 'no', right?

Huh, that's odd. Etaroths are supposed to drop at least one Gold Coin guaranteed. I'll have to talk to check up with the GMs who ran the last event and make sure they're using the right monster code.

The thing is, that sort of server and gameplay style stagnates quickly. The players wouldn't have anything to build towards or ways they could combat tactics. What gear you have and what level you've reached are just as important to competitive combat as your style of fighting and skill level.

Now, I'm not saying the situation is hopeless. We've been working on different methods to dissuade gold farmers in these sort of cases. Report checks to monitor who gets the drops, indexes of all users who enter the coordinate areas the bosses spawn in, IP purges to find and ban thousand of bots simultaneously, all sorts of things.

ind of dull, actually. The big problem for me is that I like to keep up to date on new developments in the gaming industry, so there weren't a lot of surprises for me this year. I was a little disappointed that several of my favorite companies simply didn't bother showing up to E3 officially, or that those who did weren't offering any sort of special promotional.

One has to accept that gold farmers will always exist in some manner, so I'm more interested in just making life as hard as possible for them than trying for the frankly implausible feat of removing them completely from the game.
