Top 10 Openly Gay Characters of Childhood Fiction (that we never noticed were gay)

Top 10 Openly Gay Characters of Childhood Fiction (that we never noticed were gay)

You ever notice as a kid that there were some characters who were a little off?  You noticed little things about them that made you think that they were different.  Then, as you get older you look back and you realize – I get it!  Not all of these character decisions were intentional.  I doubt that we will ever know which ones are and which ones aren’t.  Some of these characters are old, some are…

Lucien’s Review: Persecuted

Lucien’s Review: Persecuted

PERSECUTED - In theaters July 18th.  (PRNewsFoto/One Media LLC)Before my friend sent me this movie, I hadn’t even heard of it.  This film.  The fucking movie.  Oh my god.  What a treat.  What an absolute treat.  This is the best bad movie that I have ever seen!  For real, this movie is just awesome!  It’s literally the most blatant propaganda for right-wing Christianity that I have enjoyed watching.  In case you don’t believe that, they even got Gretchen…

The Europa Mystery: Part 3

The Europa Mystery: Part 3

I’ve never been a fan of offworld shuttles.  The g-forces are always sucking me back into my seat.  With inertial dampeners, it’s gotten a lot better.  I can’t imagine what it would be like to be one of the old-school astronauts who used to be put in a machine to make them go in a circle until they threw up.  Seriously, what sick bastard does that to a person?
In any case, we get out of the…

PZ Meyers, Jaclyn Glenn and the lack of Free Thought

PZ Meyers, Jaclyn Glenn and the lack of Free Thought

For those who are unaware, I have been an outspoken opponent of a movement called Atheism +, which decided that atheism should no longer be about simply not believing in a deity, but also must be about social issues, angry and passionate “click-tivism” and having those within the atheist community fight amongst themselves.  And anyone who says differently is a misogynist.  Or, if they are a…

The Failed Apartment

We’re sitting here, waiting for our dinner to finish cooking.  It’s just some fries that we got from the freezer section of the store, but it’s food.  Gotta love being poor, right?  Watching Breaking Bad and waiting for a friend to come over so I can shoot the shit for a while and forget about how unbelievably lonely this apartment is when my roommate is gone.  She’s at her ex’s place, where she…

The Europa Mystery: Part 2

The Europa Mystery: Part 2

There were too many things rolling around in my head as I went back home that night.  I had just had a major turning point in my personal life when I kissed Angie.  I was going to go on one of the greatest scientific expeditions since the mission to terraform Mars.  If we found life in the waters of Europa, it would be a discovery unheard of anywhere.  We would have finally found…

Top 10 Swords in Video Games

Top 10 Swords in Video Games

You’d be hard-pressed to find a gamer who hasn’t had to don the blade at least once in their journey across the worlds of the games they play.  Picking this list is probably the hardest thing to do, because there is such a vast and wide selection to choose from.  Rather than go for the swords with the best stats, we went with ones that were both dripping in cool and had a kind of iconic status. …

The Europa Mystery: Part 1

The Europa Mystery: Part 1

Waking up is never easy to do.  The worst part about it is when you have to face the morning and go to another day of boring and useless school that isn’t teaching me anything worth knowing.  At least, that’s how I felt that morning.  I got up and looked at the clock.  It was making that little tune that tells me to wake up.  I wanted to beat the shit out of it and go back to sleep.  Seriously,…

I Just Need to Stop Believing

I Just Need to Stop Believing

Haven’t done one of these kinds of posts in a while.  Given how busy I’ve been over the course of this miserable summer, I’m not surprised.  My job is one of the worst things ever and I hate being there.  All I want to do is to leave.  I want to just up and go.  If I could, I would.  I would pack all my shit and hit the road and see where I can go.  Somewhere where I can live the way I want to. …
