One after the other, Martin Sargent's shows-on television, on cell phones, and online-have been brutally cancelled. When his most recent effort, Infected by Martin Sargent, was axed by Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback, Martin finally cracked. At the show's final taping, Martin doused himself in... Read More
On this maiden voyage of Lil' Internet Superstar, we celebrate a man who creates functional, delicious beauty out of meat. Lots and lots of meat...
Welcome to Lil' Internet Superstar, the daily version of my Revision3 talk show, Internet Superstar. My name is Martin Sargent, and I'm really jazzed that you're here.
Everyday on this show, I'll be introducing you to another Internet Superstar, somebody who has managed to penetrate the culture by doing something amazing, ridiculous or incredibly retarded online. And as we meet and learn from Internet's most wondrous characters, I hope that you'll be game to not only watch, but also participate by nominating folks you've stumbled across in your own late night online meanderings by sending them to martin at revision3 dot com.
But Joel isn't an Internet Superstar because he's keen on computers, awesome as that may be, no, Joel is my pick because he likes to build things out of delicious, marbled, fatty swaths of meat.
In the grand Internet tradition of the classic site hatsofmeat.com, Joel's first creation was the meat house, a lovely cottage comprised of 20 sausages, 12 slices of bacon, a kilogram of ground pork, and 2/3 of a container of bread crumbs, with kabob sticks acting as its frame.
The verdant green lawn was created using a nice layer of ground pork covered with sage, and the tiny meat car and birdbath are colored with paprika. Baked in an oven for about 100 minutes, the house was then bacteria-free enough to eat.
Joel's meat house spread far and wide on the web, and the success of it inspired him to build a meat ship, which consists of roughly double the amount of meat as his meat house. Here's a time-lapse video of Joel and his pals building the meat ship:
I think Joel's next project, given his diet, should be a heart defibrillator made out of two hamburger patties and a length of pig gut. Or maybe a girl molded out of ground chuck, because she'd be the only thing who would let him insert his meat bat into her.
But what do I know. It's not like Lil' Internet Superstar is going to get me laid. Anyway, congratulations Joel! You're an Internet Superstar!
And remember, if you have a nomination for our next Internet Superstar, please send it to martin at revision3 dot com. See you tomorrow.
