I eagerly await Mary Rosh’s rebuttal

Apparently, when you control for the crack-cocaine epidemic, it turns out the equation is “More Guns, More Crime.” 

Because I’m an equal opportunity shit-stirrer…

I spoke to Chris Kluwe about my earlier interview with Adam Baldwin. This part should amuse some of the folks who commented on the previous post:

Kluwe began by noting that it was strange that Baldwin, a critic of journalistic ethics, requested that the interview be conducted on Twitter, which is not conventional journalistic procedure — but that he understood the desire to work in a format in which ideological opponents would not be able to manipulate your words.

So, I interviewed Adam Baldwin about GamerGate…

…and Animal Mother/Jayne didn’t disappoint.

Though he did want to talk about the Frankfurt School more than I expected.

#GamerGate in a nutshell

I believe if you start reading here you’ll be able to see exactly what I’ve been dealing with tonight…but that’s not why I’m writing this.

I’m writing this because some people — who can not be proven to be the people involved in that conversation — are threatening to tell my employers that I’ve been accused of sexual harassment and am therefore an enemy to “true feminists” and “feminism” everywhere. They’re also claiming that I failed to act appropriately in another awful incident and this, I admit, is why I’m angry enough to write this post.

All of which tells me everything I need to know about them who would doxx me — I say let ‘em, as I know y’all remember things I’ve done that are far worse or more impolitic. Right?

Alabama school system only paid a former FBI agent $150K to spy on the black students…

…it didn’t expect the company that hired him would just start doing surveillance on the entire town.

It’s all about shyster ethics in Jew-run journalism

I can’t believe I forgot about this! While researching a GamerGate piece the other day on 8chan, I repeatedly came across the most accurate Photoshop of Anita Sarkeesian ever, and I meant to recommend it to any reasonably attractive lady — you have a bit of a burgeoning thigh issue, but nothing a few hours a week in the gym won’t fix — who thinks herself a “real feminist” as a Halloween costume:

I apologize to all you almost sexy bitches for forgetting to do so. Banish me to the friendzone if you must, but remember — I was always The One!

The 25 worst people of the day this Halloween

I’ve got say — watching my friend and colleague David Ferguson bang this out yesterday was an unqualified pleasure. Sample:

4. Bill Maher

Why he’s scary: His agenda appears to be sliding further and further to the right and now he’s even flirting with Rand Paul. We’re concerned that by spring thaw he will have gone full Dennis Miller and be appearing on Fox News.

Our tribute: Smoking a bomber joint while sexually harassing a stripper in a mosque.

On the Japanese version of Ringu and why she’s having so much fun up there. Sample:

The most interesting visual element in this shot is the perspective implied by the camera placement. By partially obscuring the view of Reiko Asakawa, Nakata suggests that this might be a point-of-view shot, thereby planting in the minds of the audience the idea that perhaps she’s being watched—and that the audience might be sharing the perspective of whoever (or whatever) is doing the watching. The fact that the camera is perfectly still here adds to the unease, because that lack of movement alone suggests the watcher may (or may not) be in plain sight, yet is undetected and wishes to remain so. In classic horror fashion, Nakata wants his audience to inhabit the mind and perspective of a stalker.

And you know what? Being a stalker is dull…

I’m not saying — I’m just saying.

I’ll be damned if this doesn’t make me want to call for someone’s head on a stick.

Ever wondered how horror films work?

[ 24 ] October 23, 2014 |

For those of you who enjoy my breakdown of films — and in the spirit of Halloween — I’m going to link to this Vox article that I had no input into the choice of films selected or the techniques discussed.

In all seriousness, it was supposed to be a collaboration, but events intervened — so Todd had to settle for doing a fantastic job writing it up on his own.

As for my next AV Club column, it’s been pushed back a bit so it can take part in the site’s “Horror Week” theme. It’ll cover some of the same territory as the Vox article, but will be about Ringu.
