|Todd Solondz - Neat Kind of Guy|
It's like watching Bottle Rocket, only Solondz didn't end up creating the plague.
|Gamer ZilianOP fakes disability to collect 20 grand in donations|
...Okay so I voted my own video from the dead, dunno if that's bannable offense so here's an apology!
Still, I couldn't have done it if it weren't at a 6 already. I'll put some good stuff in the hopper and will never influence poe democracy ever again, promise.
|Adventures in Dinosaur City (whole movie)|
This was a snes game, never knew it was based off of a movie though.
Could have sworn this was illegal beyond Thunderdome, but ok.
|An interview with an Oklahoma tornado survivor|
I saw someone posting about this the other day, but the way they were talking about it, I assumed that they were joking. I had no idea that the tornado was like this, hope they made it out okay.
|Evangelion - Arrival of Zeruel|
Right, time to be all pompous and make bombastic statements rife with hyperbole to speculate on a non-issue, because Eva. I will also blame this on being up for a 24 hour period.
We all know the history of OG Eva, with it's production problems leading to Anno's breakdown, the small fanbase exploding after the series was over, and the cobbled together End of Evangelion that was created almost on the sole impetus of fan outrage over the ending. Besides all of this, what's overlooked about Eva, is that it was created with strict purpose. Anno wanted to create an anime which would strike at the heart of otaku culture, which at the time was very much like Shinji: earnest, confused, unable to connect with others, and content to languish in the culture they created for themselves. He adopted the elements of popular anime at the time, to tell a story on how to fix these deepening social problems otaku were creating for themselves, and even though it was incomplete, for a time he succeeded in that, and lots of really good anime and manga started being produced.
Since that time though, ota culture became more niche, the work increasing in specificity of a nonsensical value, and overarchingly less intellegent. People started creating more and more Moe, harem, and other trite troped out work, and with ota culture having been assimilated, these trends were becoming impenetrable. Years worth of throw away anime without creative thought were being pumped out, and so after a decade or so of dormancy, Anno decided that he was going to do another Eva. Not only was he going to tell a full story without worry about production values, time constraints, or censorship, but he set out to make something to shake up the creative public again. The rebuild isn't about repeating the past, or restoring Evangelion, it's about showing people that creativity lies in the exploration of ideas, and not the reliance upon those already known. I like everything but End of Eva, and I think the new films are great additions to the series. I can see why American fans dislike it, especially with all of the vagueness of the latest entry, but I'm into that sort of thing because it's pretty Eva. People analyzed the shit out of that show because of all the unanswered questions, from the relevance of the Christian symbology, to who Kaji really has feelings for over Misato and Ritsuko. Speculate and be entertained, don't get mad because Sue Storm was played by a latina :P
Besides, when Pacific Rim succeeds, and they announce a Hollywood production of Eva with Daniel Radcliff as Shinji, do you really want to be mad at something that the original creator made? :D
|Kai the hitchhiker sought for the murder of a 73 year old man in New Jersey|
Nah, he's yet to be reanimated, nor in a musical about his own life.
1:24 and up.
|never go on reddit|
You wouldn't have solved the Boston bombings if it weren't for reddit. You wouldn't be able to talk to an astronaut if it weren't for AMA on reddit. You wouldn't know Robert Downey Jr had a father with the same name if it weren't for TIL on reddit.
|School of the Holy Beast (trailer) |
I kinda wish this would come back, but erring more towards the girl gang stuff.
|Evangelion - Arrival of Zeruel|
:D People complaining about anime. For those of you who haven't seen the third in this series yet:

|THE GOVERMENT IN THIS COUNTRY SUCK |
She would be happier if she quit half-stepping into her nationalism. Hopefully, she'll find the courage to accept her historical reenactment friends one day.
|Weird Dancing Pants Girl Made a Music Video|
Nope. Just saw her tumblr. Gotta walk away before I give myself some problems.
|Wretched: How to put an end to the Harlem Shake. |
O_O JESUS CHRIST THAT THING'S REAL?!
|Tim Heidecker Stand Up Nine - Part 1|
Aww shucks, I missed that part, I forgot all about the constitution bit too. My libertarian friend loves Tim and Eric, I'm kind of wondering what he'll make of this, especially since I only know this stuff from debating with him.
|Tim Heidecker Stand Up Nine - Part 1|
He forgot to throw in the bits about "when do I stop apologizing for slavery?!", and "we need to cut spending on people who don't work!". More men comments would be necessary too.
|Banned TED Talk: Nick Hanauer 'Rich people don't create jobs'|
from my zeitgeist bookmarks:
|The Science Delusion (deleted TED talk) |
Maybe my logic is faulty, but the point I was agreeing with had nothing to do with his theories (which I sort of already said), or TED removing their association from him (though I don't understand why, as they've hosted people with much dumber ideas). I just happen to think I see what he's talking about, when he refers to science materialism, as it's pretty apparent that lots of scientists are devoting their time to very well known things, which also happen to make money.
I get it, you gotta make a living. I'm sure making robots for DARPA is probably fun (hooray for war), being a bank's Quant must be great (cause who cares about poor people), and it must be rewarding to come up medicine that helps people (if they can afford it); but is it a good thing that neuroscientists and botanists have to resort to kickstarter to get work done, or that even in 2013 we still have scientists hard at work debunking global warming, or how's about them rocketships at NASA? Science can't afford to keep moving in such a direction, and if it takes having Sheldrake's theories put to the test, then so be it.
Then again, heaven forbid that scientists waste time on far fetched theories, like cloning or nanotechnology, when there are so many more important things to look into, like string and M theory, which have come so far since they began 50 plus years ago. Yes, this is the good old “science is agnostic” argument. Why? Because, we don't know for sure, and probably never will (besides, only a sith deals in absolutes). If someone's theories can be disproven, let them be, but science isn't practiced by just citing what someone has said in a book, it's practiced by experimentation and documenting the results thereof. The only people who stand on what they know in science, are the ones who end up preforming lobotomy till people tell them they aren't allowed to anymore.
I could add more about science education, the idea of expertise, and parentheses, but I've got to get off the internet before google collects my red data, unless the Acherons among you tipped them off to me already.
