Porn, Booze, Weed, or GTA? What's Worse?

Our latest "Question of the Day" is live on What They Play, and we want to know what parents think is the worst thing their kids could be getting up to when out of sight; watching porn, smoking weed, drinking booze, or playing GTA.

Which do you think would be the worst?

So far, weed is winning but as I write this, the poll has only been up for an hour. Head on over to the site, and cast your own vote.

Girl Talk Video Mashup

As if Girl Talk's "Feed the Animals" wasn't incredible enough already (and certainly a shoe-in for "album of the year" for me so far, and I wouldn't characterize myself as a hip-hop fan by any stretch of the imagination) now some incredible mangod has done what would seem like the impossible, and built video mashups to match the insanity of the album.

Countdown to the Today Show

I've been loathe to mention this yet, for fear of jinxing it...but now we're less than a week away, and half the segment is already "in the can" (as it were) I figure it's safe to mention that next Wednesday (July 9) morning, What They Play will be on the Today Show. Tell your friends, and set your TiVo. They've already been to the Bay Area to interview some families about the video games they play, they've been to our offices to talk to Zoe about the process of piecing our content together, and then next week I'll be heading to NY to do a live segment in the Today Show studio. Hopefully I won't make a complete arse of myself on live television, or pass out from sucking my gut in for three minutes.

Here are some photos from the shoot at the palatial What They Play offices in San Francisco with the delightful Ms Flower. Hopefully, I'll be able to sneak some snaps from 30 Rock when I'm there on Wednesday next week, and I'll post those too. We'll be blogging about it on What They Play: Today, too.
