oh my fucking god
huge fucking trigger warning but oh my god
shots. fucking. fired.
So, there’s not really much context on this and there should be.
Astonishingly scathing comedy sketch about rape culture and video games. Holy fuck.
Would love to know what show it’s from.
The Ancestor Cell is a violation of the Geneva conventions and several human rights. Suggesting that someone read it is kind of evil. -unnoun
I don’t think I’ve done that, though, so I’m not sure why I’m on the receiving end of this message.
There’s a part of me that wants to speculate on who the new host is going to be and another part of me is like “Mike was hired out of a Friday’s, what the hell makes you think you’re gonna know?”
I mean, there’s still the temptation, obviously, if only because I’m having a tough time resigning myself to the idea that it won’t be someone I’ve heard of.
…fingers crossed it’s not another white guy, though.
If the new MST3K host is as witty as Joel and Mallon doesn’t try to shit on it with those stupid Flash cartoons then I’ll watch it
Be honest, you’ll watch it anyway. We all will, even if it’s solely to complain about it afterwards.
To Mallon’s credit he does seem to have realized the Flash cartoons were a terrible, terrible idea.
Are you a toxic piece of shit? : a guide
You are probably a toxic piece of shit if you are arguing that prominent asexual representation in Doctor Who is undesirable.
You may not be a toxic piece of shit if you don’t subscribe to the reading that it already has it.
Patraxes' account of Doctor Who (like everyone’s) is based on personal selection of what material ‘counts’, wildly counter-textual readings of that material, and headcanons.
Not subscribing to that account does not constitute an act of erasure. It constitutes not subscribing to another fan’s selective and creative reading.
And when not subscribing to it is consistently framed as an act of erasure then what’s happening is that the discourse of representation is being misused as ammunition to fight the same old nerdy wars about canon and fan hierarchies. It’s toxic shit.
Yes to prominent asexual representation in Doctor Who.
No to prominent asexual representation in Doctor Who because the race of the main character was cursed with it, and are also sterile I guess? Because that’s the same thing?
So I heard it’s Earth Day
Wait a sec, what’s that blue glowing thing inside the cake at the end?
…this year Mystery Science Theater may finally get a long-rumored, heavily anticipated reboot. This spring Hodgson is hoping to start a new online incarnation of the show, one that will feature a fresh (and as-yet-unannounced) host and cameos from many MST3K alumni.
"I’ve talked to a bunch of fans about their lives and what MST3K means to them. I’m overwhelmed by how people took to that show. It really affected them. I thought, if enough people still love it, maybe we can bring it back.
Even avid viewers sometimes don’t realize that every major role in the show had been swapped out over time. So in my mind, the show is built to be refreshed with new people and new ideas. It’s like Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle as it applies to MST3K: If it doesn’t change, it’s not the same show. And fortunately for us, as long as there are movies, there are always going to be cheesy movies.”
