5 Brilliant Clues Hidden in the Background of... →
Sometimes movies gives away their own ending (or at least crucial upcoming plot points) by dropping vague little hints early on. You just have to keep your eyes open. New article up! About foreshadowing in movies! I really like movies!
If you’ve ever wondered how absolutely rock-fuck-stupid the internet is, check out comics writer Gail Simone’s Tumblr to see people who don’t understand why a professional writer doesn’t like it when people torrent (steal) her work.

Right now, you are surrounded by really cool stuff. There’s probably a Doctor Who poster next to you, or a T-Shirt displaying some sweet band that you want people to associate with you. But where does this stuff come from? No one knows! Oh, wait, yes we do… Remember when I asked you guys to ask me questions? I found the answers! I found all the answers! This was fun. I’ll do it...

Warning, do not read around anything both extremely valuable and breakable. I write articles about racisms for Cracked sometimes! This is one of those times!
Not everyone agrees about Iron Man 3 — some people loved it, and other people are fucking stupid. But I think that everyone agrees that it didn’t have a sex-tape subplot. And if it did have a sex-tape subplot? Well. I guess we’ll never know.

A Really Cool Observation About The Avengers and...
A writer by the name of Dan Forward left a comment on my 5 Marvel Movie Characters Who Totally Dropped the Ball article that I think is goddamn brilliant and, with his permission, I’m reposting it here: On the Loki thing, I completely agree with you. He was maybe the least compelling part of The Avengers, though I think that the movie wasn’t really about the villains, but just about...
5 Marvel Characters Who Totally Dropped the Ball →
Sometimes the characters in these movies seem to know less about what they’re doing than we do, and for every sensible decision they make, they stumble through a series of catastrophically terrible blunders that defy explanation. I’ve wanted to write an entry in the unofficial “Totally Dropped the Ball” series for a long time, and I’m super glad I got to do it with...

Mind Blowing Movie Fact:
The opening scene of Reservoir Dogs (filmed on actor Steve Buscemi’s birthday) was intended to end abruptly after Tarantino completed his “Like a Virgin” monologue, but due to an accident the cameras kept rolling. Because the film was shot on such a low budget, they were filming in an actual diner during work hours and all actors had to contribute to the bill for their...

AKA Five Reasons Nerd-Dominated-Hollywood is soon doomed. If I can be honest, I’m super shocked Cracked bought this from me. It’s way more abstract and weird and speculative than anything they’ve let me write before, and I’m super, super, super proud of how it turned out. Especially this part: I’d see the hell out of that movie.
You know, right now everyone’s pissed about Amanda Palmer’s bland, offensively stupid poem about the Boston Bombing. But I think with time, that’ll pass, and in twenty years when we’re all looking back on this moment we’ll see her poem and say “Amanda who?”

Haha. Did that work?

Catching up on Doctor Who
I gotta say, I’m really happy with the characterization of Clara so far. She’s a beautiful, spunky and flirtatious twenty something who always has the Doctor off-kilter because of her sexual aggressiveness. This is such a welcome change from Amy Pond, who was a beautiful, spunky and flirtatious twenty-something who always had the Doctor off-kilter because of her sexual...
4/20 Actually is Pretty Special For Me

On Beiber and Anne Frank
So, it’s kinda fucked up that we’re all ripping on an 18 year old kid for not knowing the precise thing to say about the Holocaust, right? Because even Elie Wiesel doesn’t know the precise right thing to say about it. Like, Justin Beiber is a kid. What he basically said was “I wish that Anne Frank could’ve enjoyed the music I make.” Is that… is that bad?...

Dear everyone I follow: If you post anything glorifying self-harm on your Tumblr, you are a piece of shit.
