I dreamt I did a review with Lindsay Ellis in which she was dressed like Judge Dredd, I was dressed like Batman and we were dancing and singing with a Black gospel choir. My subconscious is a weird place sometimes.
I’m the one who posted this secret, and for the life of me I can’t remember what the hell we were reviewing. I do hope to share a review with her someday if my stuff is good enough, she’s one of my absolute biggest inspirations in the reviewing community(along with Kyle Kallgren and Diamanda Hagan).
I love MarzGurl’s videos about Final Fantasy 13. The first one helped me figure out what my problem has been with the series since FF10. I hate how mean people are to her about it though. She makes good and informative videos and I hope she continues.
The more obsessed Final Fantasy fans tend to get pretty damn butthurt over their franchise getting bashed. Every fan that says that people bash FF13 cause they didn’t give it a chance and that the game gets REALLY good after 25 hours of gameplay needs to realize that we don’t owe Square Enix anything to have to sit through 25 hours of monotony and stupidity just to get to the alleged “good” part of a game,
I don’t have any incentive to play FF anymore. The Persona series replaced it as my JRPG franchise of choice loooooooong ago.
I think a site move might be in order for E-Rod. Maybe move to The Agony Booth or NerdVice. He’s certainly talented enough to deserve his spot on TGWTG, but maybe he’d fit in better with people from the other sites. I know he gets along great with Jerry Nava, The Film Renegado.
And don’t think this is a knock against him, it’s a knock against TGWTG as a whole for not making him feel welcome there. It’s kinda sad, really, he’s genuinely funny, has a very defined topic for his reviews and his characters are hilarious. I honestly don’t know why people have it in for the guy.
(They are awesome. <3 - Pink)
I sent this in, and another thing I left out(out of respect for Spoony) is that I remember the breakup with Scarlett, and that seriously messed him up for a while, I was really sad for him. Seeing him happy and enthusiastic with a girl again is seriously d’awe-inducing.
I’m the one who sent this one in, and I too am very annoyed at how much crap people give E-Rod, when I think he’s seriously very funny and talented. Oh, and while I mentioned Nerdlinger’s my favorite character, I think the funniest skits E-Rod does are the movie pitches by Fedora Freddie. Not only are they hilarious, but they also serve as a great representation of the demented focus-group creative process and the serious disconnection between the average movie executive and the movies they churn out. It’s seriously great satire.
I was raised Catholic, but honestly lapsed into non-religiousness with time. I, however, still have a soft spot for The Prince Of Egypt, and recognize it as a wonderful film on its own merits. I’m really glad Doug feels the same. It’s still, to this day, Dreamwork’s best animated movie, IMHO.
He’s Oan’s title card artist. Also the artist for a number of others, but mainly Kyle’s.
Just to clarify, I’ve done one-off cards or card bases for other people both on and off TGWTG but I’ve only ever been Kyle’s official full-time artist. Otherwise I’m just friends with a lot of the folks on…
You saying you hug people with pencils is the most adorable thing I have ever heard or read an artist say, Ven :)
(Most of my best friends these days are from the TGWTG fandom. It’s my second family and my home. -Pink)
I’m the one who wrote this, and I’m not joking, I love you guys. Puerto Rico is a very narrowminded, shallow culture, and I’ve always been an outsider for being a fanboy and intellectual. You guys always cheer me up by making me realize I’m not alone, and when I move to the States, all of you are always welcome at my house :)
Kyle mentioned on Twitter that he wants to review the movie, but right now he wouldn’t be able to condence his thought to no less than about three hours, because there’s an unbelieveable amount of things to discuss.
So, looking forward to that —JQ
3 parter? Let’s make it a Jodorowski saga Kyle, Topo, Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre in a row! you know you want to ;)
(I am so not ready yet either)
YOU ARE BOTH PUSSIES. YOU HEAR ME?? PUSSIES!!! I TACKLED FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA FOR PURE SHITS AND GIGGLES WHEN I WAS ALMOST A DECADE YOUNGER THAN BOTH OF YOU!
And you call yourselves critics. I can out-critic the two of you put together tackling symbolism in Mexican arthouse cinema!
I CHALLENGE YOU BUGGERS FORTHWITH TO PROVE ME THE LESSER PENCIL-WIELDING DINKUS AND DO JODOROWSKI! DO JODOROWSKI LIKE A 3-CENT WHORE!
Once I start my reviews, if I ever got big enough to earn a crossover with Kyle, I’d KILL to do this one with him. Any Jodorowsky movie, really, I LOVE El Topo and Santa Sangre.
Oh, and Jerry, LOVED your review of Fando Y Lis :)
And Ven, Garcia Lorca ;_; Few deaths are as completely cruel and undeserved as Garcia Lorca’s death. Awesome playwright and poet. La Casa De Bernarda Alba is a masterpiece.
I’m the one who wrote this, BTW. I don’t really feel I need to keep it secret :p
“Out of all the reviewers on the site, the one I wish the most I knew in real life is Oancitizen/Kyle. I wish I had known him in college, taken classes with him, and engaged in debates with him. I think I would have had a blast if we could have been study buddies.”
Pssst, remember his kickstarter!
I feel the same. He has the perfect balance of being an intellectual and really damn funny at the same time. One of my goals in life is to buy him a beer sometime.
I just refreshed the #FindTesla tag to find this.
I am heartbroken.
Tesla, I feel blessed to have gotten to hug you and pet you and see your adorable tail wag.
There is nothing as heartbreaking as losing a dog. No friendship is more loyal and no love as pure as that of a dog :(
