Yes. No. I don't know.
It constantly amazes me that all super geeks/nerds act in the same, self-unaware, smug, overconfident manner.
This is bad, sure, but it's no http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=39022
Hey, I've seen their channel on Winamp. Its mostly just a constant stream of viral videos and 'funny' commercials, but they do take over whenever the MST3K stream is down.
The guy with the red jacket bears an uncanny, and I do mean really spooky resemblance to this total supernerd who used to hang out at a comic shop I frequented back around 2000, 2001. By hang out I mean "spend hours a day loitering in the store, butting into conversations and maybe buying a single 25-cent comic from the bargain bins every few weeks".
This annoyed the no. 1 clerk who happened to be a friend of mine to no end, because this guy, called Lionel, kept bothering people and mayber repelled some customers but the shop's boss man was deathly afraid of kicking anyone one out for whatever reason.
Lionel was pretty smug and annoying, had a nerd lisp and hung out with this doughy Hispanic guy who always wore a little vinyl kid's backpack. This guy was also loud, smug and annoying.
Lionel tended to gravitate towards books with female leads, and would debate loudly with his pal and the two other guys who sort of hung out with them while he stood in the aisles of the store.
I remember walking in and seeing a mother edging her young son towards the door while casting nervous glances at this nerd cluster, Lispy McGee going on and on at high volume in this vein: "BOY, LADY DEATH HATH THE BIGGETHT BOOBTH IN COMICTH, IF SHE GOT INTO A WRETHLING MATCH WITH WONDER WOMAN, WOW TALK ABOUT A BOOBFETHT!!!!!"

The last time I was in a comic book store (which is rare for me), I saw a herd of bearded, Harry Knowles impersonators all playing with ten year olds in some sort of Digimon card game that was supposed to go on every day for a week.
I just walked out after that and couldn't bring myself to return.

I confused this with VBS.tv, who made the Vice guides to Liberia and North Korea. The level of smugness is about the same in both but Vice is a lot more interesting.

who here likes neo geo i do
my friend is the manager of the comics store. we can film in the comics store and make fun of the kind of people who hang out in a comics store
awkward pauses smushed between the acting equivalent of slowly walking away from an explosion without looking back
basically this is just perfect
When did this go from a website about a guy who talked about his cat and terrible Quake II mods to the Wall-mart of everything wrong with the internet?
I just know deep down in my heart that Invisible Crane could kick this guy's ass so hard that angels would cry out the Final Fantasy victory jingle.
That breathy "yeah!" at 1:30something is how you know you are dealing with a world of hurt.
