Actually, water is not wet in the way we traditionally associa…
I’m sorry, I don’t know what came over me.
The only thing I can think of is I was just accepted to write for a Vox Media subsidiary (NFL team website) on a trial basis. /humblebrag
I was going to share a few of my thoughts about last night’s presidential debate, but…instead here’s a sexy thumbnail of Grace Park and one of my favorite Portlandia sketches.
The Battelstar Galactica remake was pretty good.
Steam suggested a game to me. The ad caught my eye.
I don’t know what this is, but the reviews are on point and make me almost want to check it out.
Hillary can go to jail. What an imaginative fiction.
I used to watch College Humor and read Cracked (I won’t link that crap), back when they didn’t seem so overtly leftist. Or maybe it just took me a few years to see their biases, much as I didn’t see SNL for what it is until I was out of my teenage years.
It’s a shame, but the left owns the culture, as Andrew Klavan frequently points out. That’s a large part of what inspired this site. Leftist views are not mainstream. They’re not moderate. Yet they push and push and we lose ground. A few years ago we were fighting over same sex marriage, and it was pointed out that after it was normalized, next we’d have transgender and pedo normalization. The left threw up its hands and said that was an overblown slippery slope argument. And yet here we are, with leftists defending child molesters and men who want to use the little girl’s room.
There are Republican and conservative nerds out there. We buy video games and read comics. We work in IT. Not all Millennials are socialist d-bags. PC Bushi may not have a huge audience at the moment, but the target demo is out there. And we get sick of social justice-driven editorial pushed out my garbage heaps like Kotaku and Polygon, and of the leftist bent of DC and Marvel comics, and the condescending stupidity of Leonardo DiCaprio and the Hollywood crowd. As Curt Schilling’s recent firing from ESPN illustrates – we’re out there, and we’re living in a hostile environment.
The way to slow the onslaught is to fight back and provide intelligent, entertaining alternatives. That’s why I enjoy and support Louder with Crowder, Ben Shapiro, and Klavan on the Culture.
I recently discovered a sketch comedy troupe on YouTube called Studio C. So far as I can tell, they’re not conservative. But so far as I can tell, they’re also not leftist. I haven’t loved everything I’ve watched, but I have gotten some laughs out of some of their stuff. I just wanted to give them a plug as an alternative to the dregs I mentioned at the top of the article. Here are some of my favorite Studio C sketches:
Hot Air just last night posted the latest Bad Lip Reading “Bernie vs. Hillary” video as a palate cleanser. As Allahpundit notes, many of the earlier BLR videos were just strange, yet often amusing gobbledygook. I enjoyed their Walking Dead rips; maybe it’s the voices that do it for me.
In case you’re wondering, there are ones taking aim at the GOP, as well. There’s a Republican Debate BLR, and one dedicated to Ted Cruz. I wonder why they haven’t done one for Trump yet. I guess either they’re saving that material for closer to the general, or else he just says so many outlandish things on his own that it’s a challenge to cobble together something like this for him.
Anyhow, my favorites of their stuff, by far, have been the Star Wars videos they’ve been putting out over the last couple of months.
Each film’s BLR video contains its own little song, as well. These have been spun off into their own music videos, which I honestly listen to from time to time just because they’re super catchy songs. Still waiting on their Empire Strikes Back MV!
