There aren’t too many theaters open right now because of the Chinese Flu (or our response to it) but that doesn’t mean we can’t make fun of some terrible creative choices in big-budget films right? One of the channels that I’ve started to frequent more recently is The Critical Drinker and it’s a great channel that you should check out when you have the chance. The Drinker’s latest projects are to think of coherent and far better ways of writing how titular and beloved characters that have been emasculated/ruined by Disney® and its incompetent “creative” decisions. The videos are quite well done and the possibilities to fix the numerous character inconsistencies should have been apparent to a large team receiving hundreds of millions of dollars to make these films. But, I suppose that Disney’s® Marvel™ and LucasFilm™ needed to force certain characters down our throat and add some diversity in the worst ways possible. Enough of my ranting though, enjoy these awesome videos and their acerbic wit!
The Star Wars Episode IX teaser trailer just came out and boy am I amazed at how invested the fanboys are into what has become a soulless Disney product. I don’t get the reaction videos that I’ve watched. There are a lot of good movies out there that I really enjoy but I don’t understand crying to a teaser trailer where people that you thought were dead come back to life. What can I really say about Star Wars that others haven’t already said in a far superior manner? I believe that I can allow the following videos and images speak for themselves…
How soy-filled can one man be?
I feel as though Mister Metokur has a pretty good take on the preceding man-baby:
“The campaign, which was born in the fever swamps of 4chan and Reddit message boards, involved creating hundreds of fictional personas with gray cartoon avatars, known as NPCs.”
The enlightening commentary on Internet jokes just keeps getting better and better:
“These accounts posed as liberal activists and were used to spread — among other things — false information about November’s midterm elections”
What the hell, does the author think that this is some elaborate scheme by the Russians (who can do everything by the way)?
“NPC Wojak is a variation of Wojak, an old cartoon (also known as “feels guy”) that has become a kind of collective mascot for the far-right commenters online. In recent weeks, users on 4chan and Reddit have made all kinds of memes featuring NPC Wojak. ”
Oh look, tis the far-right pejorative used again on someone that doesn’t agree in lock-step with the Democratic Party and media.
“And then, when progressives object to a meme that portrays them as unthinking automatons, it becomes another piece of evidence: See? The left can’t take a joke.”
Glad to see that we can agree that the left has no sense of humor. If you guys could take a joke there would’ve been no need to write this dumb article or for Twitter to ban thousands of obvious parody accounts.
“The campaign began as a joke. But a few of the accounts started posting misleading information about the midterm elections, including encouraging liberals to vote on Nov. 7. (Election Day is Nov. 6.) ”
Damn, the author really doesn’t have a sense of humor does he? Has Mr. Alex Burns never heard this joke before? Does he really not understand it? This next excerpt takes the cake though:
“Are these Russian bots?
Probably not. (Although some of the NPC accounts may have been automated, there is no sign that Russia is involved in this.) Mostly, it appears to be a 4chan joke that spiraled into some mild voter suppression.“
An Internet meme is now voter suppression, who knew? Since the NPC meme is so clearly effective and accurate why not post up some NPC memes? Enjoy and be sure to share with your fellow NPCs!!!
Did you dislike the new Ghostbusters film? If so, you’re an overweight, virginal, Ku Klux Klan, basement dwelling, toy-unboxer who hates women and black people. Remember, you aren’t allowed to have your own opinions if they contradict against feminism. Let us listen to Scientist Man as he analyzes and explains the new Ghostbusters film in great detail:
If you have some extra time, feel free to enjoy this Half in the Bag episode:
Some of the best comments:
It’s simply amazing that a film like Ghostbusters was politicized and turned into some sort of fight against “misogyny” and “patriarchy.” This is where we’re at; this is where feminists have brought us. What came first: the feminist angle or just a bad film? Why not both at the same time?
