I just got to the scene where this is from and started giggling.
I forgot how much I love the LOTR movies.
Since the last time I’ve seen them, I have read The Silmarillion for the first and second times, and damn! They really kept the mythology accurate.
Poe’s law is in full effect. Homestuckers representin’. Also, just, come on. “Santorum’s corrupt!” “Nuh uh!” And yet I still can’t tell if this is for real. Some more choice bits: Okay this next one pissed me off. I can’t even laugh at it. What a vile person, whether sincere or satire.

You’ve got people who paid ten dollars and got hundreds, literally hundreds of hours of fun out it, screaming about how they’ve been ripped off and are owed compensation or a refund. I’ve seen like, three people say that nobody should buy the dude’s games ever again. All because he feels that the game is finished and also he and his wife had a child that he wants to,...

Thanks for the link, Avi!
haggady asked: re: humor. Humor is best when it rings true! Actually what bothers me most is Wong lumps a bunch of stuff together under hero gets the girl. The hero (Wall-E) falling in love with the heroine isn't always the same as him "getting" the girl.
haggady asked: random thought: “correctness” in language is like formality in like fashion. There are varying conventions. You dress up nice to go to work. You dress up really sharp for a wedding or funeral. You relax on the beach, you put on something simple for dinner with friends, you dress schluffy to go to the grocery store on a Saturday night.
Anonymous asked: Can you tell me a bedtime story?
haggady asked: Not sure I get the point of yesterday's Cracked. Seems to be saying sexist men have external locus of control, lack emotional maturity and view all relationships as adversarial?? I get that comedy involves exaggeration but the article seems to lump all men together - sorry folks, we're little better than horny animals! It presents a rather dim view of men.

He was okay right up until he started talking as though oppression of women is unchangeable and utterly linked to the fact that men have penises. Which unfortunately is halfway through the first entry. It’s hard for me to swallow this as Wong’s work (though it undoubtedly is). There are shades of these ideas in John Dies at the End, very light shades, but even then it’s easy...

kitein: Read More [[MORE]]I think that view is too reductionist. Emotions do serve a purpose in survival and cognition, but that is not all that they are or can be. I mean, feelings of love and lust are pretty clearly functional aspects of cognition which serve purposes of reproduction and mutual protection, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t beautiful or meaningful beyond that...
