Skepticon 6 video: Sex and Violence in the Bible

The first video by Hambone Productions of Skepticon is up, of David Fitzgerald’s comedic analysis of the Bible’s naughtier bits. Trigger warning: the Bible is very, very rapey. I mostly enjoyed this talk, though there were a few bits that were problematic. Many of the jokes are visual or are punctuated with visual aids, with …

How to get me interested in The Hunger Games

Til now, I’ve had little interest in reading or watching The Hunger Games, having suffered through one too many kids-having-to-hurt-each-other dystopian sci-fi novels and movies. If you want to get me interested in the franchise, you’d have to remake it something like this. Cookieness Evereat. Hah.

Mock The Movie: Terror in the Haunted House transcript

Both Stephanie and I missed out on this one for various reasons. Looks like participation was exceptionally thin — only three stalwarts mocked this movie. We’re moving our mockery to a once-a-month schedule to help mitigate some of the burn-out we may be experiencing, and it’s looking like presently it will be first Wednesday of …

Mock The Movie: The Cloth transcript

Imagine Castlevania in movie form, combined with The Exorcist and a smattering of Blade. Then take away all the awesome bits, waste your CG budget on the least-interesting and least-useful bits of the movie, and make sure your action scenes are nigh unfollowable. Dip it repeatedly in Jesus until well saturated. Ensure all the bad …

Jesus can’t save this rap

Seriously. Just… seriously. What is this even, y’all? From that place that finds other horrible things from a decade ago and posts them onto their intertubes e-webpage.

Mock The Movie: Miami Connection transcript

Miami Connection pretty much hit the sweet spot for Mock The Movie mocking in every possible way. It included mediocre martial arts, ridiculous gore, 80s synth rock music, and a plot that almost sort of made sense if you overlooked the fact that a rock and roll band that knows Tae Kwon Do is the …

Tim Minchin addresses University of Western Australia graduates (UPDATE: With transcript!)

This is an absolutely sublime speech. It is full of both realism and optimism at the same time. It is full of skepticism. It sounds nihilistic at times, but Tim Minchin does that oratory sleight-of-hand that has you looking one way while he delivers a truth sucker punch from the other. This speech has brightened …

Mock The Movie: Sol transcript

We watched Sol for Mock The Movie last night. I can’t remember what happened in the movie. I have a vague recollection of poor acting, tents and sand. I think I blocked the rest as a defense mechanism. There were more than a few times I simply got distracted from the movie — I’m not …

Getty Critics dub lame stock footage and make it awesome

Getty Images does stock photography. They also do cheap stock footage. This footage doesn’t have sound. It turns out, that is a bit of a travesty. The computer guy is me. Totally. Hat tip to Getty Critics and Copyranter. Ain’t got much in the way of resources at the moment. Pretty sure I’m coming down …

Elders React to Grand Theft Auto V

Some of the quotes in here are very choice. Especially the lady who’s dead set against ever playing this game. Or the one being super creepy about wanting to play it. “I’m more a Halo man myself.” Okay, I LOL’d.
