You must pay tribute

So the left is whining about Taylor Swift’s alleged “aggressive whiteness” and the reason she is so “aggressively” white is because she has, so far, not denounced Trump.  Info Wars has a story on this, if you want to read it. As Alex Jones said, it’s like the music industry – and the entertainment industry…

The left has officially lost their minds

A porn star named August Ames – who was only 23 years old – has committed suicide after getting a shitload of harassment and hatred on Twitter for being, according to the left, too choosy and discriminatory about her sex partners.  In other words, she claimed she didn’t want to perform with a certain porn star…

Here we go again

Another day, another “problematic” book.  I hate that word, by the way.  “Problematic.”  SJWs love using it. First, it was Keira Drake.  Then it was Laurie Forest.  Along the way they tried to torpedo recent releases by Veronica Roth and Maggie Stiefvater, both of whom are more established YA authors.  And now it’s Laura Moriarty’s…

In 2001, I was a big fan of The Princess Diaries, both the film and the book.

Ooh, look – consequences!

The odious Kathy Griffin decided to pose for a photograph in which she held up a bloody mask designed in the likeness of President Trump.  The backlash was pretty severe – loads of leftists and people on the left and the right denounced it.  Today, CNN decided to terminate the contract they had with her.…

The politicization of games

I’m a gamer. I don’t think I am a particularly good gamer, but I’ve been playing games ever since I was a very small child. In fact, I kind of would rather play Elder Scrolls Online right now, but I have to have dinner soon, so yeah. I have heard of the Far Cry series,…
