Hey grrrz,

While I disagree with your characterization of my own views and stance with regard to the historical events cited in this review, I will say that your comment alone is more nuanced and manages to say more interesting (and entertaining) things about the French Revolution in the space of 369 words than La Read more

A fair rebuttal. I had this initial impression myself when I was watching the opening hours of the series. But as the story progressed, I didn’t sense any of the tongue-in-cheek self-awareness or humor that you’d otherwise expect from gothic camp or pulp in the vein of either Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Pride and Read more

Snowman from Oryx and Crake. Double-points because he's an awful human-being to start with.

Interesting stuff, though I can't read this and not immediately think of Kirk Hamilton's article on the hypothetical(?) intersection between the novel and video-game monetization.

Nice! Reminds me of Floria Sigismondi's music videos for Marilyn Manson in the 90's.

Triclopsinators is a much better name than just "dwarves" or "elves" or whatever it is they're called.

When I first read the title of this article I first assumed that Klickstein was saying, however inarticulately, that the bar of quality on Nickelodeon's content shifted after the nineties and now the channel has such a "diverse" range of shows of sporadic levels of quality that the channel really doesn't have an Read more

2014-2015 are going to be the awkward transitional years. Just because the hardware's been out since October doesn't mean we have the games to play on it. Eventually, developers are going to "pull the plug" on "last-gen" hardware and migrate to the new systems. But it takes time.

The studio is being parsed down to 15 members, including Levine, and the Bioshock franchise is being handed over to the publisher 2K to decide which studio will helm it while Levine and the leaned-down Irrational work on a new title specifically focused on digital distribution. Read more

Just finished the DLC. The kiss moment was very heart-warming and it made the inevitability of Riley's fate hurt all the more. What I'm curious about is, why does everyone assume that she's gay? She kissed Riley, she had feelings for Riley. Is this a sweeping indication that she is only attracted to women? I don't Read more

I get that you don't like the series. That's fine. But taking active satisfaction in its commercial failure? That just comes off as abnormally dickish.
