Space Nazis? When will they learn...
Space Nazis? When will they learn...
Gina Carano gets her SELF fired, Scott Adams and other conservatives like Ben Shapiro can't tell the difference between conservative politics and literal fascism, and I take the Tumblr Accent Challenge. In Entertainment news, Jack Black is cast as ClapTrap in the Bordlands movie, but I think you should fund mcchris instead. Batwoman is doing poorly in the ratings, but Javicia Leslie is doing awesome IMO. Oh. and questions for Marzcat!

Ep 7, Addams, Family, and Facing the Music
Ep 7, Addams, Family, and Facing the Music
The blood of the Covenant is thicker than the Water of the Womb.. and I've ALWAYS wanted to be an Addams. That's my kind of family. Choose your own family wisely, it isn't always genetics that really matters. Also, was 29 years exactly the right amount of time for the perfect ending to Bill and Ted? Bill and Ted Face the Music is finally out, and it's EXACTLY the movie we NEED in 2020. Spoiler free review, of course.

The silent protagonist in video games, when it works and when it doesn't. Also, being ESSENTIAL.
