Free Form Comments

Say whatever you want to in the comments to this post -- random, off topic thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, recommendations, criticisms (which can be anonymous), surveys, introductions if you have never commented before, personal news, self-promotion, requests to be added to the blog roll and so on. If I forget, remind me. Remember these comments can be directed at all the readers, not just me.

ALSO. You can use this space to re-ask me questions you asked me before that I failed to answer because I was too busy.

AND you can use this space to comment on posts that are old enough that no one is reading the comments threads anymore.

You do not have to have a blogger account or gmail account to post a comment -- you can write a comment, write your name at the bottom of your comment like an e mail, and then post using the "anonymous" option.

WRITING FOR THIS BLOG. If I see a big free form comment that deserves more attention, I will pull it and make it its own post, with a label on the post and on the sidebar that will always link to all the posts you write for this blog. I am always looking for reviews of games, tv, movies, music and books.

Caught a glimpse of Trasformers 2 the other night. Put a (cleaned up) review up for anyone who's interested up on neoterism, IGN, and American Chronicle. Short summary: Transformers 1 minus anything resembling intelligence equals Transformers 2. Still kinda fun to watch though, in IMAX

I don't Twitter, so I'll just note here that Better Off Ted is fun, smart, fast-paced, and worth watching, but isn't as compelling as "similar" shows like Arrested Development or Scrubs because it hasn't developed an overarching story yet (qualities that make them similar: blending of the everyday and the absurd in a way that confuses which is which, good use of editing to make jokes, familiar narration).

Anyway, it's good enough to watch one episode at a time.

Charlie Brooker (@charltonbrooker):
"the 1st Transformers film was a dishwasher loudly shitting in your face for 2 hrs."

Devin Feraci (@devincf):
"TRANSFORMERS is fucking shockingly racist. Not kidding. Racist robots look like monkeys, speak jive, one has a gold tooth, they can't read."

Add that to Chud's review and you have my opinion of the series.

Is anyone reading Warren Ellis' No Hero?

Turns out one of the "racist" robots was voiced by Tom Kenny...Spongebob of the whitest guys ever in the history of history

finsof72: Sorry... you think that makes it less likely to be a racial caricature?

No just ironically funny
