Every US midterm and presidential election year (except one) since 2010 encourages people to play banned video games for democracy. In 2010 the cast, staff and crew of ASSC Studios couldn't make it to Jon Stewart's* and Stephen Colbert's* Rally to Restore Sanity* or the March to Keep Fear Alive*. ASSC Studios then decided to have others who also couldn't attend covered by hosting a live video game-a-thon! We never really had a clue of how it would work except that it would involve playing banned video games. Below is what ASSC Studios has fudged over the years to encourage the continuation of this event. We encourage you all the weekend before every US midterm and presidential election to get your thumbs, joysticks, controllers, keyboards, mobile devices, and motion sensor devices ready so you can pretend you're continuing what Stephen Colbert* called the biggest bowel movement of our generation.
We knew 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) were having this rally/march to piss off and mock what was called the Tea Party at the time. We knew there were people who wanted to go but couldn't. We knew people wanted to still show support for these comic greats and make fun of the then Tea Party. We knew others realized who really brought us into this mess and that those who were trying to fix it were being fought and stopped every step of the way those who caused it. We also knew a lot of people had no money and couldn't make it to DC in 2010 still wanted to participate in something on that day just didn't know what. Since then we know things have only gotten worse and that people still want to do something to bring awareness to what's still horribly wrong with politics in the US.
To all of you out there who couldn't make it to DC in 2010 and still can't (or don't) want to go there to continue to protest those that caused this mess you're in luck because ASSC Studios came up with a solution. In 2010 we had our own event on the same time as the Sanity and Fear rally and march and continued this tradition the weekend before every midterm and presidential since (except for one). More information is provided below for those who want to continuing participating in our idea that honors Stewart* and Colbert*. We encourage others to have their own banned video game marathons and contact us on Instagram to send us pictures to repost of your event before/during/after the video game-a-thon weekend.
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?
That's fine just keep them tactful and respectful. If you're going to do this we suggest the sign has something to do with video games, willingness to restore sanity to our country, and uh, um...fear? Also, don't forget to include the url of ASSC Studios (www.asscstudios.net), the date (10-30-10), and time (Noon to 11:30pm). Also we'd love to see the signs our fans make so if you wish email it to us at
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?
If you will be having your own video game-a-thon and would like to send us the link to your live feed, pictures of your event, YouTube videos, small video files, facebok or twitter posts, links to your own website, etc. the best bet is our GMail account which is
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.

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?
A few ways. Follow us on twitter (twitter.com/asscstudios), email us (
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.

Description of the most epic winter holiday ever coming soon! For now you can check out this outline now updated for 2022!
- Category: Holidays (all)
- Hits: 427
Tired of the same boring holidays? Annoyed with the commercialization of your former favorite holidays? Holidays found on other websites just not cutting it for you? Well then you're in luck! ASSC Studios is offering you not one, not two, not three, but four holidays for the internet price of one.
That's right, ASSC Studios has created several holidays that are celebrated for those who want to celebrate more than the dozenish holidays normally celebrated in a given year! That and we're kind of desperate for attention and are hoping these holidays will get us hits or at least a footnote somewhere.
Oh yeah and if you're any of those other internet people that claim you made a holiday called Febtober Fest before us you can right to Crisis City. You may claim to have over 270 Febtober Fests but we know you're lying. We've been having the real and true Febtober Fests since 2005 not your sorry excuse for getting drunk that you created in 2008. Silly frat boys.
Our current holidays include Sonicémos, , Pidmufebjock Fest, and the most epic winter holiday ever, Holidays which includes [The Real] Febtober Fest and the PIDMUJOCK
Sonicémos is a holiday that starts the Friday before January 30 to the day before the Super Bowl. It is a video game playing holiday where you mostly play Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokémon, and Super Smash Bros games.
Cult Week is a holiday is the left overs of another holidays we celebrated known as Febtoberjock. This was a holiday that combined two holidays that were created for complete randomness in 2005 (not as a sorry excuse to get drunk in 2008) and 2010. It is a week long holiday that starts on April 23 and ends on April 29. The original (and real) Febtober Fest was combined with another holiday created by ASSC Studios called Pidmujock which was created when we found out some internet frat boys stole our first holiday (Febtober Fest). These two were then rolled in to part of our favorite holiday, Holidays.
Pidmufebjock Fest was created by choosing at random what didn't make into Holidays especially from what was cut from when Febtoberjock was split back into Febtober Fest and the PIDMUJOCK as part of Holidays.
Holidays of course is the most epic winter holiday ever. It was created through a series of questionnaires from 2014-2017 of combining the best things from every winter holiday, Febtober Fest, Pidmujock, Febtoberjock, as well as suggestions made over this time period. It's name came out of annoyance of both sides of the Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Debate.
