The Guilded Age is a better title than the Whoring Twenties (Sided Dice)

Who else reads Guilded Age?  I do.  Phil “KAAAAAHN” Kahn and T “U” Campbell have put out a pretty amusing buddy/group action comedy for a a bunch of years now. Yes it’s set in a medieval, slightly Dungeons & Dragons-ish setting but it’s basically the Wild Bunch (or maybe the Dirty Dozen) stretched out into an AMC length teevee series. It’s a fun webcomic.

I’d like to see Josh Whedon try and build a show around a … Continue reading Butch R. Mann Send His Regrets

Tropes in Distress

This first entry in The Tropes vs Women in Video Games project from Anita Sarkeesian (successfully funded on Kickstarter) covers “damsels in distress” and is quite good: We all grew up with videogames and while I don’t think any of it controls anyone’s behavior (as in the constant political grandstanding over violence in videogames) it does reflect and reinforce attitudes and patterns in society. Examining games with a … Continue reading Tropes in Distress
