Fandom Sickness – Episode 2

Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of Fandom Sickness, wherein I call out the silent enablers who do nothing, say nothing, to help women who are sexually harassed at conventions.

This came about after hearing of yet another groping done at the SDCC this year, which you can read here.

As for some of the things I talk about in the video?

Lucille Ball SAVED Star Trek before it was ever on the air.

The Scarlet Pimpernel.

I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that somehow when no one was looking, Archie became the coolest kid in the room. Forget 90 percent of the titles being churned out by the Big Two. If you’re looking for quality and progressive comics, Archie is where it’s at. Yes Archie. Yes, you read that sentence correctly. No, I am not joking. Yes, we could be in Bizarro World. Let me get back to you on that one.

Why I saw “Maleficent” 10 times at the movies

As an affirmed movie buff, it’s not unusual for me to see a movie I like several times. Until Maleficent came out, The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King held the title for Most Number Of Times RVCBard Spent Way Too Much Money On Tickets And Popcorn and Candy To See This Shit. I saw that shit 5 times at the movies. That’s right. Five times my eyeballs were sore from 3 hours of staring at a big-ass screen. Five times I sat there with my bladder about to burst.

Maleficent broke Return of the King‘s record twice over.

That’s right. I saw Maleficent ten times. No, no, not ten times on my laptop. Ten times on the big screen.

Anybody who knows me knows how particular I am about the things most people don’t think about when they watch a movie. Things like media representation, subliminal messages, and other stuff that people pretend not to notice. If I’m watching something ten times, you best believe there’s some real interesting shit going on with that.
