#GamerGate: Anita Sarkeesian Threatened and the Media Overload

#GamerGate: Anita Sarkeesian Threatened and the Media Overload

So, for those who haven’t been paying attention, in a very recent story, Anita Sarkeesian was supposed to be a speaker at a conference at the Utah State University (USU).  However, she never got a chance to speak about her usual BS.  Why?  Well, it seems that there was a threat that she got.  It was a threat from somebody online, threatening mass shooting of Sarkeesian and others there.  In…

Lucien’s Review: Godzilla (2014)

Lucien’s Review: Godzilla (2014)

GodzillaI don’t like this movie.  A lot of my people talked about how this was a Godzilla film that they had always wanted, and I’m here to tell you that that is not the case.  Not the case at all.  It isn’t nearly as bad as the Godzillafilm by Roland Emmerich, but that doesn’t make it a good movie.  I don’t believe that this is a bad movie.  I genuinely don’t.  However, given what this franchise has…

Video Game Confessions: Wario

Video Game Confessions: Wario

Being a journalism major, and a future journalist, suffice it to say that I get around.  In my travels, I have met some of the most insane characters!  These are the kinds of people that most nerds only dream of seeing, and I have gotten to meet, in the flesh.  And, seeing as how it is late, there is soft jazz music playing, and I am feeling all deep and introspective, I thought that I would tell…

Lucien’s Review: Gone Girl

Lucien’s Review: Gone Girl

Gone GirlI’m not sure.  I’m just not sure.  I’m not sure how to do a proper review of this movie.  I’m not sure how I can adequately explain this movie, without spoiling the living shit out of it.  So much of what I want to and could talk about for days on end revolve around parts of the film that if I did talk about them, I would spoil this movie.  It has been a LONG time since I saw a film that made me…

So, Even Acknowledging No Evidence, You Still Believe? (A response to Mick Mooney)

So, Even Acknowledging No Evidence, You Still Believe? (A response to Mick Mooney)

So, I happened upon an article on The Huffington Postrecently that made me stop and think.  I’ve always held to the standard that believing in something without evidence is crazy.  If I am going to believe something bombastic, I need extraordinary levels of proof.  That’s how every major claim goes.  That makes sense.  So then, when I think about religion, what would compel me to believe in it? …

Lucien’s Review: The Evil Within

Lucien’s Review: The Evil Within

The Evil WithinWith the glut of action games, survival horror has become something of a lost art.  There are games that have come closer than others to recreating that kind of game, but aside from the Indie space, this genre has kind of fallen to the wayside.  However, the original creator of Resident Evil, the remake and the vaunted Resident Evil 4 has decided to team up with Bethesda and bring us a new game. …

God Wants the Terminally Ill to Suffer? (A response to Trent Horn)

God Wants the Terminally Ill to Suffer? (A response to Trent Horn)

For those who haven’t heard, there is a woman by the name of Brittany Maynard.  She is currently suffering from a brain tumor that is inoperable.  She has moved from California to Oregon, where there is a law that states that the terminally ill are able to take their own lives, when their disease gets into the late stages.  It’s a more humane way of dealing with this, as opposed to telling those…

Re: THE RAPTURE RIGHT BOYCOTT JACLYN GLENN

Re: THE RAPTURE RIGHT BOYCOTT JACLYN GLENN

Oh man, I have just seen probably the funniest video toward an atheist in a long time.  While this is dedicated to someone else, and I did send her a link, in case she needed a laugh, I thought that I would share this little gem on this sight as well.  See, I did a posta while back about PZ Meyers and his really stupid response to Jaclyn Glenn’s video about Atheism + and how big into drama they…

My Views on Modern Religion in America

My Views on Modern Religion in America

I just got done reading a rather fascinating article written about modern youth and why they are increasingly wanting nothing to do with organized religion.  Here’s a link, so you all can see for yourselves.  It is very worthwhile and I think you’ll find something worth pondering in it.  However, it got me to thinking about the reasons that I left religion, and what I think about it in the modern…

Lucien’s Review: Brick

Lucien’s Review: Brick

BrickI wasn’t sure where to put this movie, after I saw it and was dying to do a review.  After all, it’s not exactly a new movie.  It was made back in 2005.  So should I put it in my Retro Reviews?  Well, that didn’t seem right, because that was for stuff that I had seen or played years back and was reminiscing on.  This was something that I had never seen before and so it should be something that I…
