All About Emma_UK
Hope you're all doing good. I have a small and painless to ask y'all. One of my very good friends, UK indie developer Paul Taylor from Mode 7 games has started a petition to get his game Determinance released via Valve's Steam.
He's been turned down twice--I don't think he's sure why--and keeps getting asked by fans of the game why he doesn't put it on Steam. It's driving him nuts, so he's started a fun petition to take to their offices. If he gets 10,000 sigs in the next six months, he's promised to deliver it personally dressed as a tomato.
How can you say no???
Thank you all so much in advance! Save the indie games industry, ya?

Other than that, I have absolutely nothing to say about this web site whatsover.
I'm not sure that Kevin can beat this....
Subject: Understanding Vagina Dentata - A Website that's full of bite!
Date: 17th June 2008
An underground online marketing campaign created for new movie TEETH has sparked frantic discussion amongst bloggers asking the question - could this happen to me? TEETH, which is released in cinemas this Friday by Momentum Pictures, is an ultra dark coming-of-age comedy with a particularly shocking premise based on the myth of vagina dentata (Latin for 'toothed vagina').
The main focus of the campaign is a spoof healthcare site http://www.vagident.co.uk/ which includes a video testimonial from a woman purporting to suffer from the affliction who explains in detail how her life has been affected. The site has enjoyed great success, so far receiving over 60,000 unique users. The primary feature of the site is to house the video Understanding Vagina Dentata, which plays as a straight documentary. Support material on the site, including a look at the myths and facts of Vagina Dentata, and frequently asked questions, helped to create a believable healthcare concern.
The Understanding Vagina Dentata video has received over 130,000 views online so far, with fantastic user responses debating whether Vagina Dentata is a real medical issue, and whether the interviewees in the video are genuine. The campaign has grown via viral portals, networks, blogs, with additional reach through the distributor's student and washroom activity.
Kevin VanOrd over in the US recently started a series of blog posts called 'Fun With Kevin's Inbox.' Just to show him that people in the UK are just as strange as those in the US, I'm going to be bringing you the best of all the oddness that we receive this side of the Pond.
We're off to a flying start today with this news. Guy said he was so excited he was thinking of live blogging it.From: *****
