    Oh and speaking of the Westboro Baptist Church, I just came across this recent Ted talk by now former WBC member Megan Phelps.



    Amazing!

    Best Ted talk I've ever seen. Leave it up to an ex WBC member of all people to teach us valuable tools for tolerance and bridging the divides, huh. There may be hope for this crazy world after all.

    Aww. It's pretty hilarious, though.

    Well, this vid definitely enlightened my day. Dire Wolf made a video response to Mundane Matt where he pretty much goes out of his way to downplay a pedophile and kiddie pornographer.

    To give you the rundown: a 19-year-old girl by the name of Mekenzie Leigh Guffey manipulated a 14-year-old boy into having sex with her, filmed a porno together which shows him fully nude and tried to sign up for Medicaid grants after getting herself pregnant with his child. Mundane Matt thinks it's more complicated than "throw the book at her sick ass," but Dire Wolf wasn't having any of it. Like I said time and time again (and like DW so eloquently says in the aforementioned vid response), I highly doubt he'd be saying that if it was a 19-year-old guy f'ing and getting a 14-year-old girl pregnant and pornographically filming her. Great to see somebody else point out this ridiculous double standard.



    The lengths Mundane Matt goes to try to defend and mitigate this piece of 's actions in the video is absolutely appalling, to say the least. She's a pedophile who took advantage of a 14-year-old. And to make matters even worse, she did it for the sole intention of getting herself pregnant with a child that he can't physically or financially provide for (duh), even going as far as to try to get Medicaid supplements in his name.

    If anyone should have to provide child support, it's the parents who BTW are facing possible conspiracy charges for letting the sick stay at their house. Sadly, there's a good chance they will make the kid pay her child support. Yes, this actually does happen, how f'ed up is that?

    I'd say throw the f'ing book at her. If the roles were reversed, there wouldn't be ANY debate as to whether or not he deserves jail time (and we all know how much prisoners HATE pedophiles, that'll end well). The fact that she's trying to take advantage of our broken AF alimony system (which, again, has no qualms about making kids pay child support) makes me even more furious.

    25-to-life for this woman, no less.

    This. This. Has me. Very. EXCITED.

    NETFLIX made an official announcement to be developing a Witcher series. This adaptation to be taken more directly from the original Polish novels by Andrzej Kapowzki than the games. It seems the author wasn't too happy with the games, despite being critically acclaimed across the board, and which I think most of us would agree is an outstanding achievement of the medium. Though it seems he just doesn't like video games as a whole from what I've read. But he is supporting the TV adaptation as a creative consultant.

    I've already heard a lot of people wanting to see Mads Mikkelson (Hannibal, Dr. Strange) as Geralt, which I would totally get behind. And I've pitched in my own casting ideas where it really matters

    Yennefer: Kate Beckinsale or Haley Atwell or Lexa Doig
    Triss: Tricia Helfer or Laura Vandervoort or Morena Baccarin

    While there have been a few misses, the majority of Netflix original series has been gold, and I see a great deal of potential here. BRING IT OOOOOOOON!!!!!

    Great news regarding the Witcher Netflix series... good to know that Netflix will soon be getting their own GoT.

    Also, I know I don't talk about music a whole lot on here, but the new Linkin Park album, One More Light was just leaked online the other day and, holy . To say it sounds "different" is quite an understatement.



    I know they've tried new things before (Minutes to Midnight, A Thousand Suns, etc.), but man, talk about a complete 180 from the rap-metal we're accustomed to hearing. Anyone who's heard the new single, Heavy already knows about the whole new direction (which that song's rather quite catchy despite the stark contrast in style).

    One thing remains unchanged, though: Chester's amazing voice. It's great to hear it in all its singing glory at least.

    Oh, and in other music-related news, R.I.P. Chris Cornell. Tragic last couple of years for music, first Scott Weiland (thus killing any chance of a Velvet Revolver reunion) and now this.

    Grunge is cursed.
