A long while in the making (read: much needed), Troy's personal website at http://www.troybenjamin.com
has gotten a quick refresh. Check out a full listing of credits as well as lots of examples of Troy's work over on the all-new site!
We spanned the globe (spammed?) in search of new bloggers to give you all that's fit to print in pop culture and it turns out that the best writers are literally right here and right now. Long time SPT message board stalwarts Adam and Luke have joined the bloggin' team and will be posting their thoughts on pop culture new and old. Rants on Walking Dead, support groups on Downton Abbey, things that are grinding their gears about Kei$ha... well, maybe not so much the last one. Or then again...
...so stay tuned, the guys will be posting from time to time along with yours truly and the blog shall be a happenin' place. Not necessarily your go-to news source, but your go to "cool" source.
And my money is on a whole lot of snark too. Which is fun.
Mondays mean all-new episodes of Still Playing with Toys: Live
- the multi-cast coming at you via video AND audio. Don't miss out, check out the first two episodes over on the show page now
Hi everyone and welcome to the all-new relaunch of Still Playing with Toys! For those of you that have been here before, you'll notice that things have changed quite a bit from the days that we were just publishing a small comic. For those of you that are new here, welcome! Stick around and make yourself comfortable.
Today marks the launch of our new network of shows that will be multicasting through our YouTube Channel, through iTunes and the iTunes Podcast app, and available for download here through the site. Our shows are short for everyone's busy schedules, and designed for the geek in all of us in mind. And with the multicast approach, you can access each show in audio or video format virtually everywhere (note: shows may not be available in Kuala Lumpur, we haven't really asked them).
Every Monday, our flagship show "Still Playing with Toys: Live
" will hit the interwebs. Hosted by Still Playing with Toys grand poobah Troy Benjamin and the ever-funny Jason Hardwick, the show focuses on pop-culture, movies, music, and a whole lot more. This week, you get the added benefit of the guys running you through all the shows that are still coming soon through the channel. Head on over to the show's page for more.
And for more information on all the shows the guys mention in the first episode of Still Playing with Toys: Live, just click that nifty "Shows
" button on your left!
So what does this mean for comics and books and all sorts of other good stuff coming out of Still Playing with Toys? Those are still on the horizon. We haven't stopped development on all sorts of rad projects that you'll be reading about here soon. But the new channel of shows gives a lot of us here the opportunity to do something that we've always wanted to do - and we're really excited to bring this new feature to you.
Enjoy, check out the shows, head over to the message board and sign up
to talk with your fellow cool people (because let's face it, if you're here - you're already pretty darn cool). And thanks for visiting Still Playing with Toys!
Had the pleasure of filming a series of videos for an amazing classical guitarist named Ryan Ayers
over the past few weeks.
He's released the first in the series of SPT produced videos today, check it out and make sure to check out his album at http://www.ryanayersmusic.com
The second video in the series has now been released as well, enjoy!
Third video now up!
Fourth and Final Videos are up!
Not able to make it to San Diego for the annual elbow-to-elbow, shoulder-to-shoulder mayhem? Not to worry, we've got you covered! Thanks to all of the super crazy technological advancements in this wave of the future that we call present day, now you can see Comic-Con through Troy's eyes.
That's right, marvel as he hangs out in line for Hall H, get a first-hand description of the pungent odor coming from the only operating restroom facility, glimpse excessive photographs of Slave Leias, and a whole lot more. It'll be like you're actually there hanging out with Troy (and you'll be running for the exits just as if you were too)!
