No One Held a Gunn to His Head

No One Held a Gunn to His Head

For those of you who don’t follow Cernovich on twitter, something caught his attention about James Gunn enough to start reposting tweets. Tweets that Gunn later tried to palm off as, and the media is trying to pass off as well, as “jokes”. I’m not going to make you skip over the pictures to get to the rest of the commentary, so I’m leaving them at the end. OK, so “joking about raping kids is obviously exaggeration.” Uh, no. Look at the tweets below and tell me all of them are “exaggerated” beyond what we know damn well a pedophile Read more »

Don’t Talk to the Press

Don’t Talk to the Press

Crowder uses his own platform to take apart a journalist. Ok – he is in media, and even here, with his own channel, the story the reporter wrote will still be out there, mostly uncorrected, and what the normies see. Nevertheless, watching her twist the arguments is useful, as a reminder that SJWs always lie, as a reminder of how they lie and twist the truth, and a reminder to never, ever, talk to the press. The shiv previewed at the very beginning goes deep. Reporter: “Do you consider yourself a Journalist” SC: “No…… Do you?” R: “I don’t appreciate the Read more »

The Expanse

The Expanse

Cataline had recently reposted to his blog on the TV series The Expanse. For the record, despite having read books 1-3, skipping 4 for some reason I don’t remember, and then reading book 5, I have no intent to read further, nor could I make it past Eros station going full “puke zombie”. A good chunk of the reason why lies in the fact that despite doing a very, very pretty job of the space battles,  they managed to get the characters, already flawed enough, all wrong. Oh, also, I don’t care about spoilers. The “author” is actually a duo. The series Read more »

Hiatus – Odds and Ends

Hiatus – Odds and Ends

You may have noticed a lack of posts the last few days. After nearly a couple years of posting every weekday, helping family move and a few other things including a clients network closet blowing up came together, and I’d rather not half-ass something up just to post. It all comes down to priorities. In this case, it’s been working out 4-5 times a week while keeping up with, and doing more to future-grow my work, and still post something 5x week. I decided workouts were more important with the time I had. Besides, I had a few things that Read more »

Final Memoirs

Final Memoirs

John Ringo’s sheer volume of output is legendary. Also the fact that an idea jumps into his head, and the next thing anyone knows, there’s another book series waiting to be edited. The last is pretty much the story of how John Ringo ended up writing a series of books set in Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter universe. I’d reviewed the first book previously. The third and final book in the series – Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints – has just been released a little over a week ago. In the second book, Chad moves to New Orleans. A few hints are Read more »

Long Boats, Iron Men

Long Boats, Iron Men

The Dream of the Iron Dragon: An Alternate History Viking Epic is the the type of “alternate history” that’s been around since Twain’s “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” – a man of our time goes to the past, and starts changing things. Like Flint’s “1632” series, and Stirling’s Nantucket series, it’s not just one man. Like Weber’s Apocalypse Troll, you can throw out the “from our time” aspect. Our protagonists are from our future, the crew of an exploration ship desperately searching for possible boltholes for humanity to retreat to stumbles into a superweapon being offered by a Read more »

Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends

I’m catching up on a few things after just finishing two books I really liked – The Dream of the Iron Dragon: An Alternate History Viking Epic by Robert Kroese, and the completion of John Ringo’s story of Chad on a mission from God in Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints. Short version – get them. So, politics aside, the next few entries will be some thoughts on the two books recently finished, and on two other stories, a movie and a TV/Book series, I effectively didn’t. I really have not much to say on a cowboy-hat lady and badmouthing customers, with the usual “but Read more »
