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…

(All together now) They Hate You

(All together now) They Hate You

Both Bradford Walker and the Z Man cover the recent TV spot saying it's OK to punch Nazis. The one that was quickly pulled, from what I've heard.A video with a bunch of thuggish looking white guys smashing and flipping cars (1), wearing not-yellow red traffic vests (2), with a smirking guy resembling Richard Spencer waving his hands as if orchestrating it (3). As the black guy walks away, the white guys in vests beating up random people and police cars on fire/damaged, he discusses punching out Richard Spencer without warning, with a beatific look at the thought…

Grrrrl Power Movies - Alita and "Marvel"

Grrrrl Power Movies - Alita and "Marvel"

For what it's worth, Cataline's review pf Alita is pretty much spot on. That said, while the scene where she tries to rouse the hunters to fight together as soldiers as a groaner - I do not think it was misplaced. I am not sure if it was a deliberate piece of subversion, but it was deliberately awkward. Instead, I found the repeated line about being tossed aside as just a nothing girl, further in light of another line about someone making the mistake of underestimating her, that made clear the feminist chops of the movie. Also, yes. there is…

Unplanned Needs

Unplanned Needs

Modern 'Christian' movies have been marred by two things. Low production values - something steadily improving - and a definite hatred of as Dalrock has elaborated in his posts on Fireproof and other Kendrick movies. Nevertheless, it may be worth your time to look at the recently completed and soon to be released "Unplanned" when it comes out. It is, roughly, the story of Abby Johnson, the youngest woman who ever became director of a Planned Parenthood clinic, in Texas. Who was part of the machine counseling women on their options, and convincing them to get abortions. Of…

Reality is Offensive

During Jon DelArroz's recent lunchstream on "Believe Women Evidence", the comment was made SJW's and the harder left, especially the pro "choice" crowd, view reality as something that wrongs them. View the stream if you like, it's fun enough, but in case you think she was kidding, consider this:"My Body, My Choice" completely ignores any other bodies. They have to dismiss that life to a degree they wouldn't a tree or squirrel.You don't have to go far in twitter or Tumblr to find women treating pregnancy as a disease, and abortion as a "cure.…

The APA and Masculinity

The APA and Masculinity

I originally wasn't going to write about this as it's all too easy to fall into yet another pointless scream-and-shout about it, but after letting it simmer for a while, I think it's well worth writing taking the time.First, a vid from a psychologist who takes issue with the new APA guidelines and makes a few good points about how shitty they truly are. It's not much of an exaggeration to say that he's putting his license on the line...OK. Since I still keep track of Ars for tech news - it's one of the few that hasn't…

IQ, SJW's, Racism, and Another Rage Mob

IQ, SJW's, Racism, and Another Rage Mob

Looks like the APA is going to be my favorite whipping-boy for a bit.I was bored the other day on social media... yes, a lot of stupidity starts that way but not the kind of epic stories that start with "There I was , no shit" or "I was drunk when...", and some SJW type started trying to round up people to tar and smear Excalibre games. Here is the Excalibre Games' statement he was referring to:And here was what he was writing about it:If it were just some rando drive by and not a smear attack on…

A Poisoned Cider House

A Poisoned Cider House

In a recent discussion of modern media I noted that while there was a fair bit of anime that I did like, I had gotten a lot pickier about what was actually worthwhile and what was just trash. In and of itself, so what. I followed that up though by noting that while there was a degree to which some old movies fell to childhood nostalgia disorder - they were fonder in my memory than the actual quality deserved - and others were better movies than I recalled, the number that were just outright ugly or propaganda, or excused or…
