I mean, here’s the thing - I think there is a line between the depiction of something and the endorsement of it, and I do hope this book doesn’t tread over that line too far. I’m not looking, especially in this day and age, for stories that explain the roots of monstrous behavior as a way of justifying or somehow… Read more
I don’t know why we’re making a big fuss about this. I mean, antiheroes and villain protagonists are a thing in literature and have been for a long time now, it’s not some trend that just started. And it’s not an automatically bad idea to have one. So long as the work takes care to show that the bad guy protagonist is… Read more
No, it’s true: All monstrous humans emerge fully formed that way from the womb, and understanding how and why they turned out the way they did isn’t important, nor is acknowledging that they’re *humans* who do monstrous things, not some species that is inherently and intrinsically different from the rest of us… Read more

“If you don’t take your coffee black, you just don’t like coffee.” Yeah, I agree, that’s just stupid. Personally, I love bitter. I often drink coffee black, although I prefer it with a little bit of cream. Same with espresso. But there’s nothing wrong with putting cream and/or sugar in it. Read more
I drink it black because, hey, easy way to cut calories. But I don’t get the people who run around evangelizing for black coffee. Why does anyone give a shit what someone other than themselves consumes? Doctor it with cream and sugar if you want. Hell, put OJ and A1 in it for all I care. The black coffee cultists are… Read more
This is kind of an idiotic thing to write (so utterly poorly) about. There is no great gaffe in anyone’s “timing” here. It’s not even that interesting or alarming a coincidence and would otherwise go unnoticed and unobserved. You guys are the shitty ones, not A&E. Criss Angel must be some sort of target here. Not sure… Read more
It’s unfortunate timing, and I’m always down to dunk on Angel (except right now, seems sort of shitty to rag on him while this is happening) and A&E, but come on. Really? I know AVC is AVC in name only these days, but this is still beneath you.
I can understand the reaction, but honestly, this article pointing it out seems worse than A&E promoting him.
