Fail Time with FAIL Blog's Ben Huh

Fail Time with FAIL Blogger Ben Huh

We live it, we love it and we say it: FAIL. Life is full of epic fails, and fortunately for us, there's only one blog out there that documents it all.

Attack of the Blog! spoke with FAIL Blog founder, Ben Huh, who also runs other viral sites like I Can Haz Cheezburger, Graph Jam and Engrish Funny, to talk about being a part of the 2009 fail meme and his favorite videogames. (Sorry, readers, I don't think he's a Sony fanboy.)

You successfully brought about the Lolcat meme with the I Can Has Cheezburger site. What sparked you to create FailBlog.org?

Technically, I didn't create it, although it was a rather unknown site before we bought it. Simply put, I thought it was a funny site and I wanted to branch out beyond I Can Has Cheezburger. We're now up to almost 30 websites, including Hawtness.com and UgliestTattoos.com, both slightly NSFW.

AOTS Visits SEMA '09

AOTS Visits SEMA '09

Attack of the Show isn't just for geeks who only think of videogames, crazy gadgets and fax machines. Sometimes we like to nerd out over other things, like cars. You know, those things that go "vroom" and you can race in Forza Motorsport 3?

Blair Herter geeks out over the latest car gadgets at SEMA 2009 in Las Vegas, where he was able to check out the hottest tools, automotive components and designs available for those who like to take their cars to the next level. He also uncovers the new Lexus LFA that gives Ferrari and Lamborghini some serious competition, and checks out a modified Scion truck with the Kiwi Wifi.

Find out what else he discovered at SEMA in tonight's Attack of the Show live at 7:00pm EST.

Behind the People of People of Walmart

Oh, People of Walmart. Your blog exists to remind us what the United States of America is really about: not freedom, not the right to bear arms, but good deals, better personalities and the best class you can find around the world.

Attack of the Blog! recently caught up with the trio behind People of Walmart, a hilarious site dedicated to showing the world all the weird, strange, and downright "is that for real?" customers of America's shopping supercenters. Check out what Luke Wherry, Andrew Kipple and Adam Kipple had to say about their viral phenomenon.

How did you guys get started on the People of Walmart site?
The three of us needed some stuff at our local South Carolina Walmart. So we headed out on a Saturday around 2 p.m. or so. We were walking through the dairy section and saw an overweight woman wearing a pink tube top, short shorts with her ass hanging out, stripper boots, and her 3 year old was on one of those child leashes. A light bulb went off.

What do think it is that draws these characters to Walmart? There are just so many Walmarts across the country that you are bound to see a few crazies every once in a while. Apparently it happens a lot more often than one may think!

Health Packs Over Here! No...Really.

The next time you encounter a horde of zombies or a crazy witch in your path, you can now fight for survival with confidence, thanks to these real health packs inspired by Left 4 Dead on Etsy. Though they may not contain actual miraculous health-boosting pills (PILLS HERE!) or mysterious life-saving bandages, these first aid kits are pretty friggin cool.

Plus, it's almost Halloween, which gives you the perfect non-embarrassing and non-nerd convention reason to cosplay your favorite zombie killing game! Someone's even selling Zoey's red jacket. Bring it on, zombies!

Intern's Corner: Meg's Turn 2.0

Posted July 17, 2009 - By InternMeg

 

Hey hey hey! It's time again for another Intern's Corner. We skipped last week because things got a little crazy with AOTS's 1000th show, which was awesome! I got to help interview Sarah Lane and watch Kevin Pereira catch a greased pig. (Poor piggy!) So, this week, I'm bringing the Intern's Corner back with a discussion of my top 5 horror games.

Intern's Corner: Meg's Turn 2.0

5. Left 4 Dead - Zombies. A lot of people think know that the zombie apocalypse is inevitable. Most of those people work here, at g4tv.com. We take zombies very seriously and they scare the crap out of us. So, Left 4 Dead left me a little jumpy long after I'd switched it off. Of course, this isn't truly a horror title at heart, but having zombies in your face is scary, even if it's just for the sake of a shooter.

Intern's Corner

This is the first in a series of observations from our interns here at G4tv.com, Rob, Meg, and Brian, who will be with us until the end of the summer. We wanted you to see what life was like at G4 through the eyes of an intern.

The gods here at G4TV have deemed it fit to give us insignificant portions of their daily life a voice. My name is Rob, and between endless hours of video game sessions and sleep, I come into work here in my little cubicle. I wake up every morning on the floor of my friend's studio apartment. After entering into my beaten up maroon 1995 Buick LeSabre to sit in traffic for an hour, I finally reach the studio, a drone-like march to the assigned cubicle commences. Wholly unnoticed by the important people running around me, I sit down and enjoy every single second of the day. That is until I am forced to return home by building security.
