Another one Bites the Dust

Another one Bites the Dust

While I'm somewhat ambivalent of the hit Crowder has taken - his recent stint trying to pal up with Glenn Beck and the sudden disappearance of two prominent characters just don't set well with me - he is far from the only casualty of the recent purges. Of more concern to me is the recent banishment of Black Pigeon.Yes, even being a pigeon-saving vegan who speaks calmly and in dialectic, precise language on a broad range of topics, even those harmless to the powers that be, has been kicked off. Of course, those who haven't already gotten a clue…

"Love" and "Hate"

It's no news to those of us here, the left hates us. The left pushes the worst form of depracity though, and not only expects you to "accept" it, but you must approve it.Again, not news.That said, it's worth noting that, and as Aurini explores the background on why, the gap is growing and getting more extreme. The left truly is losing their mind. This article starts with two premises: first, that political orientation is substantially influenced by personality, specifically the Big Five Personality Traits; this is a premise which has been thoroughly studied, and should not be…

Norwegiean Cinema: A Bit of Dark Humor.

I'm talking about the Norwegian movie that inspired it, with the english title In Order of Disappearance who's original title translates more literally as "the work of idiots."First, the bad. This is a Nordic film.…

Norwegian Cinema: The Wave

Norwegian Cinema: The Wave

My introduction to Norwegian cinema didn't start with the recently mentioned Kon Tiki. For that matter, it didn't start with the movie I'm discussing today, but if I recall, with either the Netflix series Lillyhammer, or a dark little piece called Headhunters. While both were okay, the first one that actually impressed me was a disaster movie I found mentioned over on Quintus Curtius's blog called simply The Wave, or Bølgen.The movie is inspired by several rockslides which, in the confines of the narrow fjords, have caused huge title waves, killing dozens of people. Similar events included the Lituya…

Steaming Pile of Nope

It's sad how quickly it's obvious that something is just going to be pretentious trash for IYI's.Director James Gray (The Lost City of Z) has said he wanted to make a film that depicted space travel as realistically as possible "and to basically say, 'Space is awfully hostile to us.' It’s kind of a Heart of Darkness story about traveling to the outer edge of our solar system." The official synopsis strikes just the right note of vague grandiosity: "Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing…
