Ask A Ninja Goes DVD

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the November 29th, 2006

Today, all ninja fans worldwide are able to pre-order the hot-of-the-press Ask A Ninja DVD compilation. In honor of the DVD release, the International Day of the Ninja on Dec. 5 and — most importantly — the fact that this episode of GETV will be featured on the historic DVD (as far as we can tell, this is the first online video show that has put out a compilation), we’ve decided to rebroadcast our interview with Kent Nichols and Doug Sarine, the guys behind the Ninja. Or next to the Ninja, sometimes they stand in front of him as well — anything to avoid getting killed.

For everyone in the LA/Hollywood crew, Irina will be co-hosting the Ask A Ninja party on Dec. 5, so please come by around 7pm to Cinespace at 6356 Hollywood Boulevard and say hello. Though be forewarned as the floor may be covered in human pizza.

We Got Questions, Ninja Got Answers

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 11th, 2006

If GETV could admit to being a groupie of any vlog, it would be Ask A Ninja, since being a groupie of a ninja is an honor. And being killed by one is too. But Irina’s not quite ready to be chopped up into little pieces, so instead she fired off question after question at the “Ask a Ninja” team of Kent Nichols aka Beatbox Giant (he towers at six feet six inches tall) and Doug Sarine, who is “very close with the ninja” we hear. The ninja is not only a lethal killer, but with hundreds of thousands of viewers, a vlogging force of destruction. Hear about ninja skills of epidermal removal and frozen baskets of loneliness.

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the September 19th, 2006

Insert Ad Here and We All Get Paid. By the time we stuffed a mic in their faces, Revver co-founders Steven and Oliver had been drinking their own Kool-Aid for hours at the Revver 1.0 party in the City of Angels. But we’re ok with that because Revver Kool-Aid tastes good! And to some people, it tastes like dollar dollar bills, y’all! Hear what they have to say about inserting things for money.
