Modern SNL has its critics, and now more people are skeptical due to a change in head writer. I'm on board with it, though. The style of humor they've picked up over the last few years is more in line with my own. Case in point, the linked video. This kills me every time I watch it.
This is probably one of the best videos I've come across recently. While reading Darth Vader's lines in Pooh's voice is funny, I literally cheered when he used Darkwing Duck's voice for an officer. Let's get dangerous!
I appreciate the transparency. Now the fundraising makes a lot more sense to me. Geek & Sundry likely disagree with me, but I think they should have started off by saying they're not getting any additional Google money, not that they want to do things differently.
So, I joined Massdrop. Seems like an interesting site. You can join in on buying an item with other people online, and the price goes down when more people join. I doubt I will be ordering many things this way, but there are cool items available now and some other interesting ones in the pipeline.
Oh, the link below is a referral link. Go to Massdrop.com if you don't want to get involved in that nonsense. (You get a free mystery gift box if you get five people to join and purchase an item.)
I heard rumors about Armie Hammer as Batman in some film, but I didn't realize that he would have been just one of many faces introduced in a Justice League movie. I'm disappointed that this didn't come to pass, especially since this would have definitely beaten Marvel to the punch.
Work on this film started in 2007, which is odd considering the fact that Warner Bros. was still doing Batman films at the time. Following up The Dark Knight with this might have been confusing audiences expecting more of Christian Bale's Batman. Too bad what they got instead was Dark Knight Rises.
I've never been a big fan of Batman, so that's one strike against the trilogy right there. (Meanwhile, I love Batman the Animated Series.) I just found them boring and mostly uninteresting. Plus Batman letting Ras Al Ghul die made me feel like he was less of a hero.
Call me cynical, but I can't help but feel like this #Tabletopday was an advertisement for season 3 of TableTop, with hands extended. "Now that we've got your attention, we want money for this venture." Maybe I'd be less cynical if they were a bit more transparent about why they want to be more independent and not spend Google's money.

I am a survey research specialist with an interest in multimedia (television, film, comics, animation, music, and games). I used to run a group on Meetup for people similarly interested in viewing the world through the lens of media.
I've recently taken a great interest in board and card game design.
