Sanity & Fear Video Game-a-thon
Can't make it the Rally to Restore Sanity or the March to Keep Fear Alive?* Well then ASSC Studios has you covered! We are hosting a live (once we find a new live streaming video provider) video game-a-thon! How will this work exactly? Well I have no clue but it will defiantly involve playing video games. Below is what ASSC Studios has fudged to create such an event. So get your thumbs, joysticks, controllers, keyboards, mobile devices, and motion sensor devices ready so you can pretend you're being a part of what Stephen Colbert* says will be the biggest bowel movement of our generation.
We must admit and we must know that both of these great comedians, Jon Stewart* and Stephen Colbert*, (who the ASSC Studios staff, cast, and crew all have great respect and admiration for) are having this rally/march (let's face it it's the same thing, Colbert is just staying in character) to piss off and mach the Tea Party (and probably the Republicans too but the GOP seems to be weaning out their teabaggers so we'll leave them out of this for now). We know you want to go. We know you want to show support for these comic greats. We know you want to go to make fun of the Tea Party. We know you actually realize that the people in power are not the people that brought us into this mess but instead are being fought and stopped every step of the way to fix the mess by those who caused it. We also know that you have no money and can't make it to DC (and if you are going to DC then congrats, enjoy yourself) and you still want to participate in something on that day you just don't know what.
Well all of you out there who can't make it to DC that want to you're in luck because the Staff of ASSC Studios have come up with a solution, have our own event on the same time starting at the same time as the Sanity and Fear rally and march. More information will be provided below but if you do decided on participating in our event that Stewart* and Colbert* have no idea we're doing in honor of them (we swear) we encourage you to have your own online events and if you wish you can submit where your live event will be located here and we will reference it or link to or something once we figure our who our new live streaming video provider will be since we will no longer be dealing with Stickam. Also feel free to live chat with us and/or send us pictures of your event before/during/after our event.
1) When is the Sanity & Fear Video Game-a-thon?
ASSC Studios will begin our video game-a-thon starting at noon on October 30, 2010 (coinciding with the start of the DC march/rally*). It will end around 11:30 pm that same day. If you wish to watch come any time from noon to 11:30pm, we suggest after 3pm as we encourage you all to watch the live broadcasts of what Jon Stewart* and Stephen Colbert* are doing in DC. We suggest you start your own game-a-thon around the same time and we ask if you do have your own please send us the link to your live feed so we can link it here and mention it during ours, you don't have to but we figured we'd ask.
2) Where will the Sanity & Fear Video Game-a-thon be hosted?
justin.tv/asscstudios not our old live hosting site of stickam.com due to technical difficulties we were experiencing during our failed attempt of an Early Early Late Show on October 9, 2010. The broadcast will also be seen on ASSC Studios' main page hosted by justin.tv/asscstudios
3) Will I need to make an account to view the live feed?
No, you don't have to make an account if you don't want to.
4) Can I make donations to ASSC Studios to help you guys out?
We don't want any but if you really want to throw your money at us we're not going to stop you. Your best bet if you wish to support ASSC Studios with monetary funds is to scroll to the top of this page and on the left column under where it says "Main Menu" you'll see a link that says stores. You will be brought to another page with 4 buttons that will bring you to one of our 4 different ASSC Studios stores.
5) Where can I get more information on this event?
Well the front page of the site obviously but you can also follow us on twitter, check out the ASSC Studios Facebook page, or join the Sanity & Fear Facebook event. But your best bet is probably this page on the site (or the front page) so bookmark it.
6) How can I be part of this event?
Easy, play video games (see below). We would also like to encourage you to provide us with the links to your own live feed for your video game-a-thon or depending on what service we get for our live feed to live chat with us. Either way we will make mention of you. Also feel free to send in your pictures of your event during our event. We will show off the appropriate ones and make reference to the inappropriate ones.
7) How can I spread the word of the video game-a-thon?
Well I'm sure we will make another store before the 23 so you can get Sanity & Fear Video Game-a-thon merchandise. Also we made a downloadable poster (top of this page) for you to post where ever your wish. Suggestion if you post it please make it visabel for other to see it but please make sure it's in a safe location and not a distraction hazard.
8) How can I get timely updates about the video game-a-thon?
Our twitter feed. twitter.com/asscstudios it's updated almost daily and I'm sure as we do more for this event and as it draws closer we will update it even more.
9) Hey it's the day before Halloween so can I wear a costume on my own live event?
Of course you can! Obviously it makes the most sense if you dress as a video game character but we won't complain otherwise. If you are doing this please, please, please send us your live feed, live chat us, and/or send us pics. We WILL defiantly post them, link them, and make mention of them.
10) Can I make signs to either tell people about this event or for the event itself?
11) Can I use the sign/graphics provided by ASSC Studios to publicize this event?
Yes and no. Please only use any graphics or pre-made signs we have posted here on this page only.
12) Will there be any more graphics added by ASSC Studios for potential signs?
Everything that's been posted has been if you don't like what you see here go to the facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=168306333181295
13) Will this event be publicized to the media?
Though Stewart* and Colbert* seem like great guys and seem like the type of people who wouldn't care that some unknown website is supporting them in their own crazy way it's doubtful that large corporation like Viacom* would be as understanding so no we are not going to publicize this much past our website, twitter, and facebook. Plus here at ASSC Studios we feel that the media are the reasons why sanity needs to be restored to our nation and why sanity needs to be restored and why we are so fearful to begin with.
14) How many spots will be open to live chat with ASSC Studios during this event?
We have no idea as we are still trying to figure out how justin.tv does everything so I guess we'll find out on the 30th.
15) How will I be able to send my live feed, pictures, video, links, etc., to ASSC Studios?
16) What video games will ASSC Studios be playing/what should I play?
Below is a list of games we think make sense to be played. This list is just a suggestion just remember this video game-a-thon is to promote sanity and to make people aware of fear. We have also taken random quotes from the comedians (such as Stephen Colbert* once making refernces to hedgehog being a threat to America) into account for games to be played.…of War (series)

20) Can I sell merchandise to promote my video game-a-thon?
Sure. If you want you can send us the links so you have a better chance of people buying it. We suggest you either use Cafepress or Zazzle to make merchandise quick or if you're really creative make your own stuff on home and sell it on ebay. Just make sure what you sell doesn't violate any copyright laws. On that note Cafepress has a very strange and hard ass approach to copyright laws so anything tat may look remote similar to a copyrighted item or makes the slightest reference to one they'll probably take it down.
21) How do I view ASSC Studios's live event?
Wither come right to www.asscstudios.net or go to justin.tv/asscstudios
22) What if I'm traveling to DC for the real deal that day?
Then we envy you and encourage you to have fun in DC and to ignore us. If you're bored after 3pm just come to ASSC Studios as the event is going on until 11:30pm.
23) What if I won't be near an internet connection?
The site should be good for handheld devices and it is assumed that most live streaming video providers are handheld friendly as well if you really want to view the ASSC Studios Video Game-a-thon
24) What if my handheld has no [internet] service?
Just play video games all day then.
25) What if I don't have access to video games that day?
Go outside or read a book or something.
26) What if I don't have any access to technology at all?
Then how the hell are you reading this?
27) Will this event be recorded for future viewings?
The short answer no. The long answer: We realize that we do record and save the Early Early Late Show when one is made however this event will be 10 hours longer than the longest Early Early Late Show and we don't want to destroy our space quota. However, we will be recording the event so most likely at some point in the future we will cut the footage we have down to a 10 minute best of segment and post it to YouTube. Long time fans of the site will realize it takes us forever to do such things so we will not give an exact date and time of when said video will be released.
28) How can I get more information?
29) What if I'm Canadian?
Be glad that you don't live in the United States and carry about your life as you normally would on a Saturday.
