White Guys – The ONLY Superhero

Hello everyone and welcome to a comic book movie rant, specifically about the stream of vanilla superheroes coming out of Marvel Studios for the next two years.

This was influenced heavily by a discussion on Ars Marginal, specifically this post, which was, in turn, influenced by a picture someone made on tumblr.

This one, to be exact:

The website I pulled the quote from was twitchfilm.com and the article in question can be found here.

The movie I forgot to mention that was the Another White Guy was Marvel’s announcement that they would be making an Ant-Man movie… Ant-Man.

Ant-Man?! What’s next? DC is going to make an Aquaman movie?

Brain Food – Episode 19

Hello everyone, and welcome to episode 19 of Brain Food, where I tell you what’s yummy and nutritious for your head!

Today’s book…?

Chicks Kick Butt.

But only if you’re a straight, white chick.

One thing I do want to make clear though, in case I didn’t in the review, is that on a technical sense, this book and all its short stories are written very well. They simply fail at everything else, as I pointed out.

Brain Food – Episode 15

Well, there’s been much sickness, injury, and ill-health keeping me from my video-making duties, but I’ve finally broken through the other side and in full health, I’ve gotten around to reviewing Issue #16 of Life With Archie, which celebrates the marriage of celebrated war hero Kevin Keller to physical therapist Clay Walker. It was a great little comic to read and I hope that everyone gets behind this series.

PSA – How To Be A Good Ally

This post took me a good amount of effort and thought and even more thought.

What I wanted to do the most was relate what I had learned over the last couple of years, but with some good humour mixed in as well. It’s hard to say anything more without sounding pretentious, so I’ll let the video speak for itself.

 
Enjoy!

Brain Food – Episode 12

Hello everyone, and welcome to another first for me as I discuss the anthology, Steam Powered: Lesbian Steampunk Stories!

This is more than simply titilation, but a collection of short stories that revolve around steampunk while also having a plethoral of interesting, fascinating characters in various stories that range from political intrigue and espionage to plain old, lovely romance, all while being seen through the lens of people that steampunk normally would not include. It was a fantastic read and the editor has, in recent months, released a second volume that I highly recommend you all seek out and buy.
