So there’s been tons of traffic coming through here today for the Portal video, “A Day in the Life of a Turret”, which you can find below. As a result, things are a little sluggish around here, but it should all be cleared up over the course of the next day or so.
Also, I’d like to take this time to push people to Jonathan Coulton’s website, because hey, he wrote “Still Alive”, and he’s a plain awesome dude.
If a turret bitches about its job and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound? You bet it does. “A Day in the Life of a Turret” catches two turrets on the job during a typical day at the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, and the monotony that lies within.

Tonight or tomorrow, there will be a new short up from Smooth Few Films. While this short is not “The Leet World” related, I think you guys will really enjoy it. Also, its release officially marks the end of our break from The Leet World. While we’ve already done just a little for Episode Nine, production will ramp up in full force after today. I thought that would make you gents and gals happy to know.
Also, if you’re up for watching a Hitchcockian Half Life 2 machinima, check out this nifty piece from Xanatos, a respected member of the machinima community, as well as one of our own forum-goers.
As promised, the first bit of content is here for your enjoyment, The Leet World Podcast, Episode 3. We answered a few of the questions that people asked on the forums in this podcast, and cover a wide array of topics including: Episode 8, the Domination character, CSS vs Gmod, The Over-Achiever, my addiction to gamer points, creative differences (disagreements), and Daniel’s dislike of dark places. For the most part, it is nothing but TLW content.
All of this clocks in at a fairly reasonable time of under 20 minutes. Give it a listen:
Just a quick post: we all put our heads together and came up with a FAQ page to help answer some of the common questions you guys submit. You can check it out at http://www.smoothfewfilms.com/faq/, and if the question you want answered isn’t on there, please feel free to fill out the form at the bottom of that page. Thanks!
There are a lot of questions that we get asked repeatedly while producing our silly little internet series. Let’s run through a few of them, shall we?
“When is (insert episode number) coming?”
“Can I be a voice?”
“Will you marry me?”
“Where can I download the theme song?”
For some reason, we’ve never posted the theme song to The Leet World here. I guess we were always busy, you know, making the show. Jace, aka Damn Dangerous writes the music for our series, and you can definitely check him out at his myspace page– add him as a friend, he likes those. You can also get the theme tune here:
I know you’re all starving for Episode Nine details- but not yet. You will know more soon. For now, feel free to sign up for the forums, help us build our community, and re-watch your favorite episodes. Also, I have rounded up some of the best news tidbits of the last week or so from around the gaming industry:
We are now in 2008. Where are my flying cars and robots? Nowhere. The future is lies, I’ve decided.
In honor of this new year, I bring to you more gifts, tidings, etc. First, we’ve been hearing that some people want the lolcat picture from the holiday special…
Second, I have the audio outtakes from Episode Eight. Funny stuff. To me, one of the best parts is when I’m doing the voice of the combine soldier (pre-effects, of course), and I slip into doing Cortez. I kind of freaked out when I did it, because it was so sudden. Also, every time Nick goes off in the “Chet” persona, it’s always hilarious. Give it a listen.
Presenting… The Leet World Holiday Special! We asked each of The Leet World cast members what they got for Christmas this year. It’s a card, from us to you. Try to imagine it in an envelope in your mailbox.
