I’m astonished the sense of possessiveness by adult nerds would be deranged enough to actually defend the original series’ animation. I drank that shit up like water as a kid, but lord, it’s obviously nothing but an overhead as low as manageable cash-in watching it now. This new series looks far more designed with an Read more

Horny Lycanthropy double feature: I’d go with the cult of werewolves in The Howling. ‘Just a nice woodland retreat to relax in, talk some things over with your shrink, and eat barely cooked hamburgers. Read more

The suggestions here are overnumerous but the real answer is of course the dark cabal behind Street Countdown.....

Junji Ito added a short story to Gyo called The Enigma of Amigara Fault, about people who discover human-shaped holes in the mountain. People start flocking to it, going inside the holes in a cult-like fascination to see what happens. They become trapped. It’s extremely disturbing, especially for people (like me) who Read more

Stepford Wives. And, by extension, Get Out. Finding out the people you love not only want you to be different, but want to break you, change who you are, make you subservient to their needs. And that everyone around you not only will help them, but is invested in keeping this system going. Its the thinnest of fictional Read more

Six listed and not even a single mention of Brian Yuzna’s Society.

Not sure if it quite counts as a secret society, but the whole premise of the “Reborns” in Seconds (1966) is really disturbing.  Especially that ending...

Waffles. They’re about waffles. And Pancake House.

And for what? For a little bit of money. There’s more to life than a little money, you know. Don’t you know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well, I just don’t understand it.

I thought the unifying theory was that people who have paneling in their house or office are stupid.

It really is just so absurd that so many people think its like a video game, you just stroll up and shoot the bad guy. When in reality, even if you’ve spent a lot of time shooting guns, it’s been in a controlled environment, and you’ve got ear and eye protection on. I’ve been to a gun range once or thrice, and just Read more

On Saturday mornings I work with a class that teaches green card holders what they need to know to be citizens. The guy who runs the class is an older white guy whose politics could best be described as libertarian-ish. I roll my eyes at a lot of the things he says, but, at the end of the day, he’s a 70-year-old Read more

By the by, I love that The GOP and The Puppet now want to arm teachers. They spent the last 40 years calling us lazy, uncaring, and incompetent, yet now we’re armed to save everyone (no body armor, by the by). Seriously, thanks, white people, you fucked us all hard by voting for The GOP.

Was brutal. All were in agrreement....”If I had a gun I would’ve shot him in a second.” “Need more guns in school!” Read more

That was savage. He got destroyed. He thought he was playing the crowd, and he got fucking destroyed by the crowd.

Please stop with this idea that women don’t mind certain behaviors if they come from an attractive man. A guy could be hot AF, but if he gets handsy or says gross shit he ceases to be attractive to most women.

Nowhere. I was just commenting on mediocrity (where some would argue that it already has arrived). Even if all the geniuses of Hollywood (and I know Brett Rattner is among the accused) are convicted it would be ok, because real life is more important than art. On the other hand these conviction should be done in a Read more

Case in point, ladies and gentlemen: this person, who throughout the thread has lamented the loss of art because of Lasseter’s departure (rather than giving a shit about the victims), is now trying to turn that back on me. Read more
