YouTube Can Be Good – 9/29

Another week, another pair of comic-related YouTube clips! Yay!

Enjoy!

First, here is a bit from GeekWeek.net, recommended by muldertp and our own Bill Reed.

The idea here is that, instead of reenacting Civil War battles, these fellows are reenacting battles from Marvel’s Secret Wars.

Good stuff.

Next, here is a nifty adaptation of a Daniel Clowes Eightball story, “I Hate You, Deeply,” by J10 Productions.

Clowes rules.

Feel free to recommend other YouTube clips you like!

Did anyone else here ever hear about a group of Star Trek fans who will go to Civil War reenactments or Rennaisance fairs and walk around like they have “traveled back in time.”

I know that isn’t necessarily tied into anything, but the Secret Wars reenactment reminded me of that.

I have not heard that, but that sounds pretty damn classic. :)

There was an episode of the comedy sketch show, MR. SHOW, that had something like that in it.

I loved the re-enactment thing, but to me the performances weren’t really up to the material in I Hate You. I always pictured Dennis Leary playing Lloyd Llewellyn

“Did anyone else here ever hear about a group of Star Trek fans who will go to Civil War reenactments or Rennaisance fairs and walk around like they have “traveled back in time.””

I have. They were on the Daily Show years ago. A bafflung confluence of geekiness, it is.

I know about the Mr. Show sketch, because I’m a massive Bob and David fan. But I’ve read the Mr. Show book, with comments about individual skits, and I think it was Brian Poeshan or maybe Bill Odenkirk who based that sketch on him hearing about Trekkies doing that.

I liked the Lloyd Llewellyn clip. But that might be just because it was shot in Philly.

The reenactment thing is funnier as an idea than as an actual sketch.

Yeah, the people in that Lloyd Llewellyn piece were the only problem with it. Namely, the main guy, who is totally wrong for the part.

Yeah – He seemed a bit apolagetic and unsure of himself, which is completely wrong for Lloyd Llewellyn

Funny stuff–

I loved Kang.

Oh, I totally agree that the Clowes piece could have been better – but I just got a kick out of seeing the material being acted out!

And yeah, the Secret Wars idea was a lot funnier than the execution, although the execution was decent, I thought.
