30 DAY HORROR MOVIE CHALLENGE

Day 16 - horror film with a great soundtrack

The Craft - 1996

At first I wasn’t sure what it meant with soundtrack. So I began to think of movies with memorable theme songs like Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. Then I just thought of which movie had a phenomenal soundtrack. So that lead me to The Craft aka every song/band that got me through my angsty highschool years. Seriously this is one of the best movie soundtracks out there. Good movie they just don’t make them like this anymore. Honorable Mention: The Crow

30 DAY HORROR MOVIE CHALLENGE

Day 15 - favorite monster movie

Alien - 1979

With one line “In Space No One Can Hear You Scream” and I was hooked. This is one of my all time favorite franchises, minus Resurrection. What were you thinking Joss Whedon? I usually have a hard time determining if I like Alien or Aliens more. They both are so unique in their approach but when it comes down to the horror aspect I have to go with Alien. The thought of being isolated in space up against an alien creature that’s clearly a more advance predator is absolutely terrifying. Since sound doesn’t travel in space it’s true no would ever hear you scream.

Does Someone Have to Die Before Gamer Gate Ends?

Brianna Wu is a developer and writer who’s penned pieces on the gender imbalance in modern video games and the harassment women in the industry continue to deal with as part of their daily business. She heads up the small studio Giant Spacekat, makers of Revolution 60, a mobile game hailed as “a most triumphant and excellent adventure” by RPGfan.com and denounced as “a bland, uninteresting, feminism circle-jerk” by Metacritic user Realgamer101. I’m guessing that’s not his real name, but there’s no guesswork required to figure out the poster’s gender.

On October 11, Wu tweeted the above screenshot—a series of threatening messages she’d received from a Twitter account that’s since been suspended. 

Before we go any further, it’s important to ask whether or not you want to read anything more on GamerGate. Since you’re on this page, chances are you’re aware of the sides in this bizarre online kerfuffle, as well as the problem with giving GamerGate any further coverage: These words may be further fuel for a fire that needs to die down before anyone can properly discuss the more pertinent points raised by a still-evolving debate.

If that means nothing to you, here’s a summary: A (formerly) low-profile indie developer named Zoe Quinn created and released a game called Depression Quest. Some people argued that it wasn’t a game at all—but that’s not the controversy. An ex of Quinn’s published information in August of 2014 implying that she had slept around to secure positive review coverage forDepression Quest. There’s no evidence connecting any alleged promiscuity—which, in any case, is nobody’s business apart from those doing the screwing, anyway—with the reception Depression Quest received, but the conversation quickly turned to ethics: As in, some game journalists were seen to be favorable toward certain projects that they were incredibly tenuously linked to. That connection could be chipping into a Kickstarter pot, or having long ago worked on a collaborative venture together. You get the idea: Person A once spoke to Person B, and for that reason Person A’s recommendation of Person B’s new Game C is clearly completely corrupt.

watch this whole thing please

jfc im laughing my ass off

watching this video was like sitting in a car accelerating to 150, slamming the breaks, spinning out of control, and barley missing a head on collision with a semi-truck.

Now this is how you do an analysis.

     Please don’t be so overzealous in shaming and painting people as villains. That may sound bad out of context, so please, let me clarify. I’m talking about something specific, here.

     It’s really worrying me that I’m seeing cases of someone saying “the wrong thing” on accident where they’re then immediately written off as a horrible human when it’s a single case, and they’ve not shown previous poor behavior? Sometimes people do not know things. It is great when you know things! It is also great to help other people know those things! But don’t mistake every person who is not well-informed as willfully ignorant and/or malicious. Sometimes they just need to have someone let them know that what they said is not good, and why.

     If I was on this site six or seven years ago, I knew a whole lot less about a lot of social/cultural issues, and would probably say a stupid thing or two. I was also in an environment where that was the norm (not knowing about gender issues/sexism/etc). And luckily, I later came into a group of friends, a community, and some classes that taught me about this stuff in a non-hostile way, and I came to understand it and accept it fairly easily. I want that for others. Yes, some people are jerks, who are close-minded. But assuming that everyone who expresses an ignorant opinion is also a close-minded jerk, may deter people who are actually open-minded and willing to listen and learn. 

I love when I see other people with the same opinion as me.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons
