Cooking the Numbers for Diversity

There’s a recent news story out that says that “more diverse movies make more money“, saying that movies that have more than 50% non-white actors make more money than movies that have all white actors.  Um…  not really, no. All you have to do is look at the highest grossing movies of all time.  Now […]

Feminists and TV

You might think this belongs on my other blog where I talk about geeky stuff, but I’ve really started to see this more in light of crazy feminists who only look at TV series in terms of the gender of the people they cast.  This whole thing came up as I was listening to a […]

Business with Racist Overtones

I get really tired of having to explain reality to liberals.  I’ve talked about this a couple of times before, but the liberal stupidity keeps rolling along and I’m putting this here to keep from overly politicizing my other blog. For those in the dark, there’s been a “movement” of sorts, I suppose, to pressure […]

Considering DC Superheroes

I was talking today with a friend who went to see the midnight showing of Man of Steel.  Now I am not a Superman fan, in fact, I’m not a big fan of any of the major DC superheroes, I have a fundamental problem with the way that DC handles their characters.  DC, at least […]

Positive Outcomes in Media

Believe it or not, I’m a die-hard optimist.  I know it might not seem that way to read some of the things I write, but I want people to generally succeed, I want the situation to generally improve and I want people to overcome obstacles and become better people for it.  In fact, that’s one […]

What Movies Should We Watch Next?

My wife and I have been watching a lot of classic television and movies lately, and by classic, I mean old.  Very old.  Black and white old.  I’ve seen most of it, my wife has not so it’s fun to go back and see all the very old series, both television and movies, that I […]

Can We Have Good Horror?

I have a ridiculously large video collection that spans almost every genre.  As we’ve run out of things to watch for the moment, my wife and I have started turning to older film series that either we haven’t seen together or we haven’t seen in a long time.  We started watching the entire run of […]

Hobby Loyalty

I seriously don’t get the desire of hobbyists to have utter loyalty to the source of their hobbydom, even when that source is really screwing up.  I see this kind of fanatical devotion in a lot of hobbies, in fact, maybe in all hobbies, where people think they somehow owe it to companies or organizations […]

The Look of the Future

I’ve been kicking this around in my head for a while now.  Originally, it started as a comparison of the DC and Marvel superhero universes and why I preferred one over the other.  Then I realized that it applied not just to comic books, but to TV and movies and books and, honestly, to my […]
