If the Jonestown Kool-Aid incident happened today the cult leader would be forced to field like 75 questions about whether or not the beverage was organic, all-natural, or gluten free until he just snapped and shot everyone instead.

So, a certain red-bearded director has a pretty funny scene in this movie with his good buddy and Brandywine star Dian Bachar. The directors say our scene gets one of the biggest laughs! Also, Diamond Dallas Page, Jake the Snake Roberts, Rowdy Roddy Piper, and a ton of others appear in the film. Proud of Adam and Chris for finishing it. We've supported each other over the phone through the ups and downs of finishing a film and battling for distribution. Good dudes for sure. I'll be there to support it as soon as it's available. Give it a look, folks.

A small town loser and ventriloquist finally finds the courage he's lacked all his life when his dummy (voiced by Les Claypool of Primus) starts speaking up for him...with gra...

A lack of subtlety in most forms makes me really, really uncomfortable. You can be loud and over-the-top and still be being subtle, for the record. Ricky Gervais acts like a spazz on The Office but there's so much going on "between the lines". Not a fan of just noise or a lack of control. It's a character flaw of mine, maybe. Fast dancing makes me think people are acting like weirdos (I always imagine it with the music turned off). Throwing your arms up and yelling "Whoooooo!!!!!!!" at a sporting event makes me shudder on some tiny, tiny level. Slapstick comedy without perfect timing does the same. All that stuff. I like raw emotion and joy, don't get me wrong. I'm happy if people are having a good time. I'm not miserable around it. I just like actions with an edge or a smirk. I like passion a ton, but I like it with direction. I think maybe the mindless stuff seems slightly scary to me on some level, like it can so easily be pushed in any direction on a whim. 

Eh, my brain doesn't turn off. I get that. I've accepted it, and over the years I've stopped bitching about these things AND people have stopped giving me so much shit about being different. I used to think there was something wrong with me (when I didn't think there was something wrong with everyone else). I was probably right about both. I've grown to be cool with my tastes. Fuck it. Misfit for life.

Having street preachers scream at me that I'm going to hell through a loud speaker as I stroll by makes me think of how obnoxious we loudmouth skeptics may seem with our FB posts and questioning, but how it actually isn't even close to comparable.

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man, wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Many of the positive reviews for the new Ghostbusters movie have some sort of knock on sexists in the headline. "Women Rule, Women are Funny, Get Over it" was one I just saw. Have movie reviews officially become ways to troll someone? Will critics still argue that they only cared about movie quality while still posting pot shots at others (sexists deserve it, but this may not be the forum). Maybe the film really is good. I couldn't care less that it was all women. The trailer was just filled with really terrible jokes and awkward stuff that it didn't intrigue me. Anyway, I thought "Man, it's gonna be so hard to get objective takes on this movie from either side of the aisle because it's being used as a "Feminism vs. Sexists" platform. Made me think of Batman vs Superman, which had a lot of problems but which I think was judged negatively on things we let Marvel movies slide on... and I realized maybe that movie became the victim of a "Marvel vs. DC" nerd feud, or a "critics vs fans" feud (critics were accused of being hired by Marvel to give bad reviews. Many of them were offended by this, and I truly believe went in guns blazing as a result). Again, I'm not saying BvS (theatrical) was objectively a great movie. I just think the audience joined a bandwagon and largely adopted a mindset on what it should expect from the film and what it should make fun of/get mad about for not receiving. The same goes for Ghostbusters. Maybe every critic and every audience member should know when to just drop the bullshit and the wars and just go listen to a piece of music or see a film and judge it on its own merits. I enjoy that the country seems to be discussing important stuff more these days than it ever did before, but when it strays into petty territory or it starts ruining otherwise enjoyable things, I think we're acting ridiculous. I remember when the name "Ghostbusters" made me think of some really cool shit. Now it just makes me think of two camps of people sending mean tweets to each other and I roll my eyes.

I honestly believe that while I'd never worship an individual or forget they're still just a human being, Bernie Sanders represents the best of humanity's ideals and potential. I think there are great people who don't support him, but I think that if they really are great, then if you peeled away all of the traditions, customs, taboos, fear, social norms, peer pressures, etc that are layered on top of us from the day we're born, you'd find a person who largely agrees with Bernie Sanders on a great many things. I think it's cool to have a candidate who seems so much more intellectually honest and empathetic toward the problems of those he has little to nothing in common with, but just because humanity is starting to glow in one area doesn't mean it isn't still very, very dark in others. I'm optimistic that a politician like Bernie being so popular among young, idealistic people is a sign the world is headed in a better direction. I'm also realistic in knowing it's unlikely that America as a whole is ready for or even capable of peeling away those many layers just yet. We're getting there. Baby steps.

First guy starts the biggest, most amazing ship in the world. Uses all available materials and space to build it. Room for everyone, but a "no blacks allowed" policy keeps blacks from coming aboard. 

Blacks use the scraps to start a much smaller lifeboat to rescue minorities denied entry onto the main ship. It pales in comparison to the first ship, but it does its job - it keeps them afloat. 

A few of the people on the first ship say to their captain: "Hey, man. You've gotta start letting all colors on the ship. This isn't right." 

The captain replies, "Gee, that's funny. I don't see you complaining about that blacks-only life raft out there." The captain gets applause, and those questioning him are told to love the way the boat is run or get the hell off.

Fell and hit my head really hard earlier. I couldn't taste anything. Basic math was impossible, I couldn't hold a thought without getting a headache, and I realized the prequels are kind of underrated and that people who make fun of them are just big jerks.
