Loltacular

I was flipping through the channel and I just found Batman fighting robot Santas. I found out this show is called Batman: The Brave and the Bold. This show is the most hilarious thing I have ever seen.

A Commentary on RaceFail 09

By Longcat, had I known of it, I would be reveling in it as we speak, stoking the flames. I'm still researching it looking for the juicy parts and the best I could find was John Scalzi's thoughts on the issue. From what I can tell, it is the greatest flamewar on record, a category 5 Shit Storm. It has consumed several social networking sites, including livejournal, and great portions of the Internet. As a distinguished Internet Scientist, I would have to estimate the entire thing to be over 9000 kilo-chans, the Chan being the average unit of Internet Hate. Oddly enough, not a single Goon or Anon seems to have had a hand in it, a damn shame.

I, Critic

I will now be doing reviews of webcomics, manga, videogames, books, tabletop games, web originals, anime, etc. The point is you decide and if it's within my price range or I can find it for free on the Internet, I will review it. Send me your suggestions and I shall dance and caper about. SUGGEST AWAY!

Words I've never ever thought I'd hear, EVER!

quote: "Let me tell you, fighting for your life while enormous naked breasts dangle overhead is unsettling enough, but when the unbaptized babies start pouring out of the nipples?"

I don't know why he used a question mark by the way. The game is Dante's Inferno by the way.

The Internet has given us a terrible command to create a gibbering fan fic:

Fan Fiction and Me

I have always had a morbid fascination with fan fiction, because they're like rorshach tests. This is especially true with Legend of Zelda FanFic, because it's Campbellian simplicity (until recently) makes it a blank slate which people placed their values and neuroses on. When someone writes fan fiction, it's like having a guided tour of their mind.

Good News!

I have recently begun reading "In Defense of Freedom" by Frank Meyer. Frank Meyer was one of the founders of the New Right, alongside William F. Buckley Jr. My favorite Libertarian philosopher who sadly, is not remembered very often, but his thought forms a critical part of modern conservatism.

You can find it here: <http://www.amazon.com/defense-freedom-related-essays/dp/0865971404/ref=sr_1_1?ie=utf8&s=books&qid=1254197321&sr=8-1>


I will also be a part of a new show on Anchor TV titled, Anime Science Theater 3001. I will be one of the people making fun of bad anime.
