For now, I refer to myself as Anomalous Host, and the other guy as Arthur, until he wants his name changed. Anomalous Host "im so gonna get … Continue reading Debate: Race and Stereotypes

How I measure anti-whiteness, in entertainment

A couple years ago, I made a post that would serve as a reference for gauging woke levels in films (most of the time). I'd like to try something different, and a bit more tangible. Measuring how anti-white a movie/game/show/etc is. Thankfully, wokeness and anti-whiteness often have a correlation, because being "woke" is often a … Continue reading How I measure anti-whiteness, in entertainment

Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1993

The year that, in my opinion, defined the 1990s. Music albums may have taken a bit of a backseat compared to prior years, but aside from that everything else was epic. Films were an overall improvement compared to last year (take that with a grain of salt however; this had some major misses to go … Continue reading Entertainment Industry Nostalgia: Highlights of 1993

Method for Objectively Determining if a Board Game is Good or Bad

If one can utilize objective criticism for critiquing and/or ranking films and video games (let alone novels), one should be able to do it for board games. The biggest difference between board games and the other stuff just mentioned, is that board games require other human players to play with. That is... if you don't … Continue reading Method for Objectively Determining if a Board Game is Good or Bad

The type of responses I do … Continue reading Rant on insults and death-wishes; plus thoughts on Oh! / Ah! My Goddess!
