Honkey Kong

Recycled / pasted together from various Facebook status updates and craftily passed off as my own original work, SuperMegaNet ep. 7.2, “Honkey Kong,” is now live over at that place where all the dead sea lions washed up.

Obligatory excerpt:

“Oh, for crying out—to hell with both of you!” Mini scampers onto the ground and starts across the driveway. “I’ll take care of this myself!”

I watch him go, toddling, tripping, cursing, toddling some more, tripping again…and I realize he’s destined for doom. Even if he makes it all the way to the top of Mrs. Goodale’s girder palace, what then? Throw Ernie over his shoulder and book like the dickens? Fight Mrs. Goodale to the death? Either way he’s going to be crushed—and I’ll admit, while part of me would like to be rid of the plushness, another more exasperating part is wondering: What happens to me if Mini dies? Does a part of me die, too? Do I die?

The premise: Theo battles Mrs. Goodale—er, Womack—atop an 8-bit girder palace. Read the full episode here.

Lost Bytes

I’m not going to pretend it hasn’t been forever since my last SuperMegaNet post. I’m not even going to post a list of boring, I-was-too-busy-earning-my-daily-bread excuses (and there are plenty). What I will do is announce the releasing of episode 7.1 unto the interwebs—my first crack at making good on my New Year’s resolution of actually writing more often. Of course, since I only did seven episodes last year, I’d theoretically have to write a mere eight this year to fulfill my own expectations. Small goals. ;)

Obligatory excerpt:

“There’s good news and bad news,” Mini says to Jan. “The good news is that you’re not dead. Thankfully Robbie’s pedophone had progressive downloading enabled. Your whole body was downloaded in multiple passes of increasing resolution instead of at full-res from top to bottom. Otherwise, you might have materialized on this end a lifeless torso with a smoldering stump where your head should be. Or an upper torso without legs. Or—”

I cut Mini off with a squeeze. “I think he gets the idea.”

The premise: Theo arrives at the shopping plaza to find that Jan has downloaded in one piece. Well, sort of. Read the full episode here.
