Mock The Movie: Cat Women of the Moon transcript

So I screwed up the tweet-recording of this gloriously horrible hour long film. The logger was apparently not running at all through the entire movie. So I rejiggered the script to pull all the tweets available, but sadly, the Twitter API is kinda limiting and only grabbed the last 200 @-mentions. Other API methods support …

What if Doctor Who’s recent seasons were a 16-bit RPG?

I would play the living crap out of this game. I would do all the sidequests and find all the wibbly wobbly timey wimey collectibles. Three cheers for Doctor Octoroc, who created this for CollegeHumor.

Linus Torvalds rages against Microsoft, with a side-order of splash damage

It’s no secret that I’m a Linux guy. I love open source software. I’m not the greatest coder in the world, but I get by. I’m not the greatest scripter in the world, but I get by. Computers are my bread and butter, and considering my livelihood and my freedom to choose what software to …

Rick Scarborough: “Calling Sodomites ‘gay’ is an abuse of the language”

Sodomy is a pejorative term for the act of putting your penis into someone’s anus. It was so named by religious Christians after the Bible story of the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah. You’ll remember this is the town where Lot protected some visiting (male) angels from a roaming (male) rape gang by offering them …

Gun control, pinkification, and splash damage

A few weeks ago, before things got super-busy in my life, I was trolling about the White House petitions website and I found a petition that sorta bugged me. I left it in a tab for me to revisit as soon as I had time. As I was distracted with other things, I’d flip past …

11 Signs you Might Be an MRA

Reblogged from here: 1. You have no problem with the gender wage gap. But you hate having to pay for dates. 2. You insist that it’s a scientifically proven fact that men are stronger than women. But you complain about society believing that it’s worse for a man to hit a woman than for a …

Mock The Movie: Killer Condom transcript

I didn’t get to join in on this Troma film last Wednesday, sadly. However, it seems like the participants were actually pretty content with the movie as-is, as the mocking was pretty thin. Which I simply can’t get my head around, given that it’s a Troma movie about condoms that murder people. Seriously. CA7746 provides …

Linux+ Certified!

CompTIA Linux+ logo

Hooray! I passed my CompTIA Linux+ certification today. Sorry I’ve been neglecting you folks over the last little bit, but see, I’ve been studying from an old exam study guide from 2010, stolen from an acquaintance, and it’s basically eaten all my concentration since I hatched this hare-brained scheme of mine. Last Wednesday, at about …

How I feel about the latest round of “civility” calls

Panel 1: evangelist beating atheist with a cross, while calling him names. Panel 2: atheist about to break the cross, evangelist crying 'Hey! Let's have a little RESPECT here!'

Something like this, actually. Only, imagine the cry in panel 2 coming from a third party supposedly on our side. And imagine the evangelist is an antifeminist attacking women and people trying to improve women’s lot in life. Yeah. I don’t have a lot to say about this nonsense. I agree that we shouldn’t denigrate …

I am now a Bachelor!

"To Whom It May Concern: I write to confirm that Jason Joseph Thibeault, born 1979/04/12, completed all the degree requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in English in December 2001. He will graduate at he Spring Convocation held on May 12th, 2013. If further information or clarification is needed, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

No, not that kind of bachelor. My dance card is still full. (Sorry, interested party(ies).) In the Spring of 2001, I completed my last courses and, prior to leaving my university and entering the workforce to work off the debt I’d accumulated, I applied to graduate. I thought I had all my core prerequisites under …
