Into Jurassic World Part 3: Attack of the Fanboys

Hey there every peoples

Here we are. About to dig into the hideous, cancerous world of dinosaur fanboys  (and fangirls. They certainly exist, but I’m using fanboy as a shorthand. Plus most of the hate i have encountered has come from the male variety). There are no winners here. We all lose. Oh deep unabiding joy. Let’s get this over with.

Into Jurassic World Part 2: When Science and the Movies Collide

Hey there every peoples!

Welcome to part 2 of my coverage of Jurassic World. This time we’re going to look at a problem that has plagued so many people. It’s something that pops in every now and then and leaves everyone wondering why it’s even being discussed. Is it just an exercise in passion? Or is it just the prattling of those who take something far more seriously then they ought to? And why does the media shove it in our face whenever it happens? Here we go looking into science and the movies.

Into Jurassic World Part 1: The Review

Hey there every peoples!

Jurassic World roared into theaters a few weeks ago. It completely wrecked the box office, raking in over half a billion dollars on its opening weekend. The movie itself has proved polarizing, with people either liking it or hating it. Some even hate it with an inhuman passion. But before we get into that (the later the better), let’s talk about the film itself. There are probably going to be spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the movie abort now (though at this point you should have seen it).

Go Fund this Guy

Hey there every peoples!

Quick post to make a shameless plug. I have long told others that my sin is envy. I’m not religious, but i think of sins more as character flaws than spiritual detriments. I could go into all the baggage that has been stirred up by this announcement, but who cares about that? This guy has less than two days to meet his goal so we better waste no time on me (again, who cares, so it would just be a waste anyway).

Jurassic World Needs Bigger Guns

Hey there every peoples!

This last Friday The Avengers: Age of Ultron kicks off the summer movie season. I’ll see it, but i can’t say i was actually waiting to see it. That honor goes to Jurassic World, which opens in about a month and a half. However, i won’t be talking about the history of the film. Nor will i discuss the inaccuracies in this film, as i already about that on facebook (not because i find them bothersome, but because of the giant temper tantrum the dino fanboys threw over them). This time, i’d like to talk about a different aspect of the film: the apparently underwhelming fire power of the Jurassic World security force.

I’m not dead yet!

Hey there every peoples!

Been a helleva long time since i last posted anything. I have had a lot of personnel things to deal with. Also been busy with traveling, family stuff. And now I’m busy working on something big (which I’ll talk about more later). But i am working on something somewhat special 100th post. So stay tuned

Video Game Babble

Hey there every peoples!
The demon has been really giving me a hard time lately. It has interfered with everything, including this blog. Not helping the matter was a most worthless comment my last post had gotten. I thought about responding to it, but in the end determined that it wasn’t worth wasting the effort and thought (and when you take into consideration that I once responded to a blustering creationist, that’s really saying something). But i decided that it might be good to talk about some offbeat, casual topic to try and keep my mind solvent. With the recent buzz around PAX, what better thing to talk about than video games!
