“Suicide Squad. We Promise It’s Better Than Batman v Superman!” – Warner Bros.

Remember when the trailers for Suicide Squad were all dark and moody? But then Batman v Superman was dark and moody and nobody liked it because it sucked?

Yeah, well, in completely unrelated news Suicide Squad has been rejigged with expensive new re-shoots to make a movie about murderers, rapists, arsonists and psychopaths a rollicking ride of hilarity and yucks!

This is a total coincidence you guys!

Rebecca Maddern vs. The AFL Community.

Is there a direct correlation between being ignorant and dismissive of social change and world events and… having a love of AFL?

Rebecca Maddern is taking over hosting duties on the AFL Footy Show. While most people would react to this news with a shrug of their shoulders and move on with their lives this news has caused a great many people to lose their minds. Upon hearing the news that Gary Lyon would be replaced, by a woman no less, many people took to the usual social media outlets to vent their rage.

One of these things is not like the other. And it’s not Rebecca Maddern.

And this simple, necessary change provoked a RIDICULOUS amount of rage.

Killman V Supermope – Dawn of Disappointment.

Killman-v-Supermope
[long meandering spoilers incoming]

Ben Affleck stated in interviews while on the publicity trail for this movie that it was too smart for him. Well I’m not sure what movie he was in or watching but there was nothing smart about this movie at all.

In point of fact one of its main problems is that it takes itself far too seriously and thinks it’s making profound and significant statements about power, god, responsibility and such, but it just doesn’t. In reality this movie is less like a wisened prophet espousing truths and far more like a first year philosophy/politics student that thinks they’re smarter than everyone else because they’ve read Atlas Shrugged.

“Fuck Sewing Machines.” – Taylor Swift

An enterprising soul with too much time on their hands has managed to unearth Taylor Swift’s old MySpace account. Because I have too much time on my hands I read through her old posts and two in particular jumped out at me.

It’s Like Rain On Your Wedding Day.

Taylor Swift is currently dating Calvin Harris. Rita Ora previously dated Calvin Harris. That in itself is probably enough to cause Taylor to release the the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark, they shoot bees at you.

Kanye West – The Hero We Deserve, But Not The One We Need Right Now.

I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / I made that bitch famous

kanye v taylor

Kanye West did another thing. And I don’t think it’s a big deal. Turns out that I’m more a fan of music and Rock & Roll than I am a fan of being easily offended; because I have no issue with this lyric. Perhaps it’s time to hand in my SJW card.

Music Videos Dissected: Smashing Pumpkins – 1979

Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 (1996)
“We were sure we’d never see an end to it all…”


Pure unadulterated nostalgia.

Un-adult-erated. That’s what adolescence was for me; all adults were NPC’s. It was simply my friends and I let loose upon an unsuspecting world. This music video captures the essence of that era perfectly.
