American Meth [movie]

THIS IS A SUPER GENERIC DRUG DOCUMENTARY WHICH IS AWFUL BECAUSE AS FAR AS I CAN TELL METH HAS EXACTLY THE EFFECTS MOVIES PRETEND EVERY DRUG EVER HAS. THAT EFFECT IS: HAVING A TON OF SHIRTLESS BALD KIDS THAT SCREAM CONTINUOUSLY AND HAVE NAMES LIKE 'LALA'. PS. THE TWO WORST PARTS WERE WHEN THEY WERE LISTING INGREDIENTS AND LISTING THINGS LIKE "PROPANE: THEY USE IT TOO MAKE A FIRE" AND THE PART THE COP WAS LIKE "THE THERAPISTS SAY ARRESTING THEM DOESN'T HELP BUT I DISAGREE", LIKE HOW HARD IS IT TO FIND LEGITIMATE THINGS WRONG WITH FRIGGIN METH? ALL YOU NEED FOR AN ANTI-METH VIDEO IS THAT RUSSIAN GIRL WHO'S BONES FELL OUT FLASHING ON THE SCREEN FOR A MINUTE OR TWO AND YOUR DONE.

Master of Reality [book]

BY FAR THE THING I LIKE BEST ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE FACT I HAVE READ ENOUGH ESSAYS BY CHILDREN THAT I CAN SAY THIS IS WRITTEN SPOT ON PERFECT HOW A KID WRITES AND I REALLY APPRECIATED HOW AFTER THE TIME SKIP HE WROTE MORE MATURELY BUT RETAINED A LOT OF CHILD DUMB IN HIS WRITING STYLE LIKE HE HAD BEEN STUNTED. PS: BY FAR THE BEST PART OF THIS BOOK WAS THE TOTALLY NONSENSICAL PART ABOUT ROCKS AND LASERS BECAUSE THAT RULED. ALSO THE THE BEST PART OF THE BOOK IS NOW I CAN TALK ABOUT BLACK SABBATH LIKE I HAVE WELL THOUGHT OUT OPINIONS ABOUT INDIVIDUAL SONGS.

Machete Maidens [movie]

THIS IS A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN FLIM MAKING IN THE PHILIPPINES, PARTICULARLY Z GRADE DRIVE IN HORROR MOVIE EXPLOITATION FILMS. AND IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT TOTALLY WAS TALKING LIKE IT WAS PRETTY DOWN ON THE EXPLOITATION BUT I MEAN THIS MOVIE WAS MOSTLY JUST AN EXCUSE TO SHOW ALL THE BOOBIES AND TORTURE PORN FROM THE MOVIES. PS. I MEAN I GUESS LABOR LAWS WERE DIFFERENT THEN AND THERE BUT IT SEEMED LIKE SOME OF THE DIRECTORS WERE ADMITTING TO PRETTY MUCH STRAIGHT UP MANSLAUGHTER.

Pokemon Black [game]

OTHER THAN THE TOTALLY DUMB IMPLICATION THAT TEAM PLASMA WAS LYING DID ANYONE ELSE FEEL MORE SYMPATHETIC WITH N AND TEAM PLASMA THAN THE TRAINERS? IN THE FIRST GAME POKEMON WERE CLEARLY MAGIC ANIMALS WHICH WAS ONLY SORT OF OKAY BUT THEY ARE CLEARLY PEOPLE NOW. PS. I BOUGHT THIS GAME HOPING IT WAS GONNA BE SOME BIG SOCIAL GAMING THING SINCE PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE I KNOW PLAYED IT TOO BUT IT KINDA NEVER REALLY WORKED OUT. I THINK I REALLY HAD BEEN THINKING OF HOME NETWORKING AND INTERNET CONNECTED GAMING AS UNIVERSAL BY THIS POINT BUT IT PROBABLY IS STILL NOT.

Feminism is for Everybody [book]

A BUNCH OF PEOPLE TOLD ME I HAD TO READ SOMETHING BY BELL HOOKS BUT I KINDA WANTED TO TRY AND CHEAT BY READING THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE BOOK BUT THIS BOOK WAS PRETTY CLEVER. THE FIRST PART WAS SUPER INTRODUCTORY AND ALMOST LIKE A CHILDREN'S BOOK EXPLAINING ALL THE TERMS AND STUFF BUT ABOUT 1/3rd OF THE WAY IN IT SORTA STARTED TO SHIFT TO THE OTHER MEANING OF THE TITLE AND FOCUSED A LOT OF SPACE BEING PRETTY BRUTAL AGAINST THINGS LIKE FEMINISM AS PRACTICED BY GROUPS THAT THREW BLACK FEMINISTS UNDER THE BUS WHEN IT SERVED THEM OR ANTI-CHOICE FEMINISTS AND HOW THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AND IT WAS KINDA COOL HOW IT FLIPPED THE TITLE LIKE THAT. PS. THERE WAS AN OFFHAND MENTION TO HOW MEDICAL SCIENCE GETTING SUPER HARDCORE INTO THE NECESSITY OF BREAST FEEDING RIGHT AS (WHITE) WOMEN STARTED TO WORK AND I HAVE BEEN GOING BACK AND FORTH IN MY HEAD ALL DAY AS TO IF THAT IS A REALLY GOOD OR REALLY STUPID POINT.

Handmaiden's tale [book]

I PROMISED SOMEONE I'D HAVE A BIG DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS BOOK SO I WILL ONLY DROP MY LEAST SERIOUS OBSERVATION: UNDERCURRENTS OF ANTI-FOOTBALLISM. "we weren't allowed out, except for our walks, twice daily, two by two around the football field, which was enclosed now by a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire." "The football stadium is that way too, where they hold the Men's Salvagings. As well as the football games. They still have those." "They [men] aren't a patch on a woman except they're better at fixing cars and playing football, just what we need for the improvement of the human race, right?" "At last the Commander in charge of this service comes in. He's balding and squarely built and looks like an aging football coach." PS: HIGH LEVELS OF BANGOR MAINE NAME DROPPING! IT MAKES ME WANT TO PRETEND I'D BE PART OF THE UNDERGROUND WOMEN'S RAILROAD BUT MAYBE EVERYONE IN EVERY REAL SOCIETY THAT HAS TAKEN A

New York [city]

ONE TIME I WENT TO NEW YORK CITY AND ATE SOME LUNCH THEN CAME HOME. PS. ALSO WATCHED TV IN A BATHROOM.

Tough Guise [movie]

I MEAN THIS IS TEN YEARS OLD NOW SO IT KINDA SEEMS A LITTLE COMICALLY OUT OF DATE SINCE THAT STYLE OF ACTION MOVIE SEEMS SUPER 90S NOW AND SOME OF THE SPECIFIC POINTS SEEM AWFUL SUBVERTED, ALSO BEING SUPER PRO MARK MCGUIRE IS WICKED LOL NOW. BUT THE BASIC IDEA STANDS UP. THE BEST PART OF THIS MOVIE WAS POINTING OUT HOW MUCH MORE MUSCLEY LUKE SKYWALKER TOYS ARE NOW COMPARED TO AT LAUNCH. IT DOESN'T REALLY EVEN MAKE SENSE FOR LUKE SKYWALKER TO BE MUSCLELY. (ACTUALLY THE BEST PART WAS SOME POINTS IT MADE ABOUT ANTI-AUTHORITY TRANSGRESSIVE HUMOR AND HOW IT'S ALWAYS TOTALLY SUPER CONSERVATIVE IN A WAY YOU DON'T ACTUALLY THINK ABOUT) PS: WHENEVER I WATCH ONE DOCUMENTARY I END UP WATCHING LIKE 5 BECAUSE IF I EVER MENTION I WATCHED ONE TO SOMEONE THEY ALWAYS MENTION ANOTHER TO WATCH AND THEN I WANT TO WATCH IT.

End:Civ [movie]

I AM SUPER NOT OKAY WITH DARK GREEN PHILOSOPHY. I MEAN I KINDA GET THAT I WOULDN'T BE AND I'M THE DUDE THAT LITERALLY TALKS ABOUT THE DEIFICATION OF TECHNOLOGICAL OBJECTS BUT I REALLY DON'T LIKE DARK GREEN STUFF, AT THE VERY LEAST IT SHOULD TRANSLATE INTO DOOMED NIHILISM IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT FOR 5 SECONDS AND REALIZE THE GROUP THAT WANTS TO SHED TECHNOLOGY ISN'T GONNA BEAT THE GROUP THAT WANTS TO KEEP IT IN A PHYSICAL FIGHT SO IT'S A SILLY THING TO CALL FOR. PS. THE REASON THAT GENOCIDE AGAINST NATIVES IS BAD ISN'T BECAUSE THEY ARE SOME GARDEN OF EDEN NOBLE SAVAGE. THE REASON THAT GENOCIDE IS BAD IS BECAUSE THEY ARE *HUMAN*
