Find Me On:
Pacific Rim, you guys!!! It’s going to be the movie that does for giant robots fighting what Transformers didn’t do for giant robots fighting.
Sounds like the verdict is in, Gabe: EVERYONE wants you to recap the show this season, myself included. It is a fun show to watch! And a fun show to read your recaps about! And some day soon, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, you will be tapping your desk, trying desperately to think of some way to fill space in between ads for energy drinks, and you wil think to yourself, “dammit, if only I could recap the Walking Dead.”
SO GET TO IT, HOSS!
The Magus by John Fowles. 15-year-old me REALLY thought he was deep.
Agreed. It makes most of us feel queasy, but ultimately the notion of it shouldn’t be problematic as long as they don’t want to have kids. It almost never happens because we live in a society where it is utterly taboo and because our brains have evolutionarily developed in such a way as to generally discourage it, from the few studies that have been done on the subject. So it’s such a small percentage of the population as to be a non-issue, and therefore also shouldn’t be overlapped with abuse as though the two were interchangeable. I lived next door to a very happy brother/sister sexual couple* for awhile who had grown up in separate houses due to divorce, but fell in love later on, and didn’t want kids. No harm, no foul, even if it makes most of us go, “yuck.”
*when I was living abroad, natch.
Actually, Descartes points out in the Meditations that he could be wrong, that a “demon” could be controlling everything he senses about the world, and he never actually refutes his own point there, so it’s actually left more ambiguous and unsettled that the standard Descartes assumption would suggest.
…Right, guys? Guys? Hey, wait up!
My favorite part is that the Bible quote they cite at the end to prove this whole “no homos in heaven” point just says that the EFFEMINATE will not be allowed in heaven. So, to be clear:
- Femmes, Playboy bunnies, queens, Nathan Lane, Marilyn Monroe = shit out of luck
- Butch women, Doms, Bears, Michelle Rodriguez, Rock Hudson = in it to win it

I can’t stop watching this gif. It’s like a lava lamp.
showvideo is a theatrical piece whose goal is to create a human connection between our gorgeous devices and the brutal circumstances from which they emerge. It uses a combination of fact, memoir, and dramatic license to tell its story, and I believe it does so with integrity. [...] What I do is not journalism.”

Ed.Monsters’ Note: I’m sorry, guysGabe, but you’re just flat out wrong. You only BIFFED IT on one post! STRIKETHROUGH FAIL
I will downvote myself accordingly.

Hooray Game of Thrones weekend!
Okay, I very much agree that Spike Lee is a huge dick in this situation, and agree with almost all points about mob violence and badness and boo to all that stuff, and this is a very serious issue, but can I make one small snarky-but-kinda-also-serious comment?
“I certainly can’t imagine why any African-American in this country wouldn’t trust and depend on our infallible legal system to provide justice for the brutal murder of yet another unarmed black teenager, and would never in a million years picture a scenario in which said adult, in a fit of frustration, might impulsively point to the still-unjailed murderer (using the technological equivalent) and yell “GET that motherfucker!”
Okay, back to agreeing, and yes Spike Lee is a rich asshole who isn’t exactly lacking for resources to donate if he so chose, and yes vigilante justice is the worst, and yes to most comments above, but felt like this wasn’t even being raised as a coherent and understandable aspect, even if it’s “wrong.”
Still, happy Friday everyone!
About 90% of the Bible became useless once mankind invented the power to refrigerate food.
Is nobody going to ask why “Cabin in the Woods” was one of the tags when it’s not even mentioned at any point in the post?
“Good news, guys: The obese black kid from ‘Hook’ is still alive.” – @Michaelianblack
AHHHHHHHH STOP CLIMBING YOU ARE MAKING ME NERVOUS
I’d bring a copy of Transformers 2 with me to the island so I could point out that she really isn’t too hot at speaking English, either.
One time when my band was on tour, we stayed at a place that we were told had no electricity. We got there and sure enough, zero power. However, my guitar player, still down at the van, didn’t know what apartment we were in, so when he looked up and saw a faint tv light coming from one window, he decided that “no electricity” must mean “a little electricity.” He walked in on a woman asleep in bed and a man in the middle of taking off his underwear.

Man, I know I’m not the only one who’s said it, but How Did This Get Made? has become my favorite podcast. I love you Paul Scheer! And their review of “All About Steve” nails Sandra Bullock’s character perfectly: “Temple Grandin has it more together than this woman.”
Do you KNOW how many crops I’ve plowed in Farmville?
To be fair, you guys, there is that line in Hamlet where Shakespeare says:
“What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! And how hom’sexual we shouldst ensure our children become, through that yonder puppet stage play…to be gay or not to be gay, that is the question we should definitely answer proudly in the former.”
Something tells me A Gifted Man is going to become next holiday’s most ReGifted Man.
