A cool new channel called "Geek and Sundry"

Most of the time here at Chimp we discuss weighty, important subjects like particle physics, dark nets and grizzled langurs.  But then sometimes we just try to spread the word about cool stuff.

During a recent board game fest, my friends had me laughing so much I said we should record our games and post them online so people could howl at our comments.  That's probably not going to happen, but here's something even better--a new YouTube channel called "Geek and Sundry."

Geek and Sundry is building an interesting lineup of web shows, including Tabletop, wherein Wil Wheaton plays board games with people (and crushes their hopes of winning.)  Other shows include The Guild (a comedy now in its fifth season), Sword and Laser (a Science Fiction and Fantasy book club), and more.  A particularly intriguing show is Dark Horse Motion Comics, which apparently animates Dark Horse comic book favorites like Hellboy and the BPRD.

With tech-savvy folks like Felicia Day and Veronica Belmont creating its content, I expect Geek and Sundry will be a lot of fun when it begins airing Sunday, 1 April.
