Back in the 70s i was fascinated by MIME. Every city I visited, my then wife and I would go to city center and gawk at the talent. The following Video Curiosity was submitted by “ballisticforce”. “ballisticforce” is one of my UberStrike gamer friends, many of whom have taken it upon themselves to drag “Gray Mouser” (my in-game identity) into the current century. Just last night I was chatting to one of them who was trying to explain to me some of Google’s many features. After a while, a bell went off in my head: “Oh,” I typed. “Are you talking about that CLOUD THINGY?”
Gray Mouser is often referred to as “Mouser”, or “da Geeza”, or “Grandpa”. I’ll be telling you more about him in the near future. Gray Mouser began writing for the UberStrike community several months ago, when he was interviewed and promoted to Cmunity Writer. Since then, Mouser has been promoted once again, this time to Cmunity Leader. Basically, he is now the Perry White of the Cmunity, a group of very talented writers and artists, all of whom have become friends.
Which reminds me of a funny story.
The other day I was interviewing a young teenager in an effort to recruit a new writer who could connect with the prevalent younger demographics of the UberStrike Forum (where we all post our articles). Somewhere in our Skype text chat, I mentioned I would like him to possibly become Cmunity’s Cub Reporter — just like Jimmy Olsen!
“Who’s Jimmy Olsen?” he asked.
I was devastated.
“You know,” I prodded. “Perry White’s Daily Planet CUB REPORTER!“
A few minutes passed. Then, “Who’s Perry White and what’s the Daily Planet?”
Right to the heart!
At any rate, I would REALLY like to see this Video Curiosity’s “Dubstep” dude performing these moves live. (I even like the music!)
