Mock The Movie: Megapython Vs. Gatoroid transcript

I did a bit of digital archaeology and found two of our earliest transcripts had never been posted. Here’s Megapython Vs. Gatoroid, originally airing — err, tweeting — August 31st, 2011. This one was the natural Syfy follow-up to the inaugural Sands of Oblivion event that kicked off Mock The Movie — sadly, we didn’t …

Defamation is not disagreement

Rape

So today, on my latest Mock the Movie transcript, this post hit my moderation wall: Author : ShiningMoon (IP: 98.89.26.128 , adsl-98-89-26-128.mgm.bellsouth.net) E-mail : [email protected] URL : Whois : http://whois.arin.net/rest/ip/98.89.26.128 Comment: A girlfriend of mine and my girlfriend (friend and S.O.

Mock The Movie: DNA transcript

Last night we watched what happens when you stick Jurassic Park, Terminator, Alien, Iron Chef and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter into a blender, hit puree, then dump half of it out and fill the remainder of your glass with some horrible stop-motion animation. It was slightly disappointing that a few action tropes were missed (I was …

Transgender rights bill passes in Canada!

Back on March 20th, despite the Tories’ attempts at kicking the can down the road, NDP, Liberals and a whopping 15 Conservatives passed the controversial transgender rights bill in the House of Commons, making assault on a transgender person a hate crime, and protecting trans* folk against discrimination. I hate having to say “the controversial” …

Chronicles of a Canadian abroad

Well, as “abroad” as a Canadian living in the unofficial-Canada-adjunct that is Minneapolis gets, I suppose.

A graph for the gun violence / video games conflaters

26ae3fa8e130bd1a591e5bad36638189_623x330

Via The Atlantic Wire, this graph shows a clear correlation between gun violence and video game spending per capita… …oh wait, no, it doesn’t. Like, at all. Your move, gun apologists.

Saw nothing at all like this on my flight to Minneapolis

They didn’t seat me in row 666, there were no pamphlets on salvation, and the seats — cramped though they were — were a hell of a lot more comfortable than those pews look. And frankly, the pilot’s rapping wasn’t nearly good enough to cause the spontaneous generation of breakdancing angels. Via Everything Is Terrible, …

Mock The Movie: Dark Angel transcript

I watched this movie on TV when I was young-ish, but I knew it only by its alternate title, I Come In Peace. I have distinct memories of how cool the CD-shooting weapon was, how awesome the main character’s roundhouse kick was and how infrequently he used it, how neat it was that we got …

Father hacks Donkey Kong rom so daughter can be Pauline

Remember that Wind Waker hack I told you about recently, where a young girl’s father — who’d been changing Link’s gender on the fly for his daughter while reading it to her — decided to make things simpler for himself by hacking the rom script? Another father was asked by his daughter if she could …

My life in upheaval, but in a good way

In February 2010, Jodi and I got married. In June, we spent our honeymoon in Minnesota, going to CONvergence in Minneapolis. (My wife is every bit as much a geek as me.) Little did I know that that visit would plant the seeds for what’s been happening over the past few months in my life.
