A Confrontation of Belief on Prime-Time Television

Anyone here watch Grey’s Anatomy?  It’s rather a scattered potpourri of mostly doctors at a fictitious Seattle hospital, playing out multiple plotlines, medical and interpersonal and too frequently with about as much reality involved as the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, but that’s beside the point.  There was one particularly refreshing event which occurred in the most recent episode, broadcast naught but a handful of minutes ago as this was written, between Drs. April Kepner and Jackson…

Violent Video Games Reduce Violent Crime

With the recent shooting at a school in Newtown Connecticut and the shooting in Aurora Colorado violent video games are in the news again. The old men in the old media are blaming violent video games as they always do when a shooting hits the national news.

Violent video games have been the target of old media and conservatives for years. They will spout dubious studies and claim there is a link. They will blame any act of violence on violent video games even if the perpetrator never…

Star Wars Is Overrated

Edit: I didn't name this? I are dumb.

Now before you jump down my throat I'm not saying it's bad, the original trilogy is good for the most part but it is not the gold that people seem to view it as. There are many good parts but there are bad parts as well.

I know someone will say in response to some of my criticisms: "in the novelisation ..." I don't care. I doesn't matter what the novelisation says, the movies are what matter, not the novelisations of the movies. Another…

Is there a Doctor on A|N that can tell me wtf is going on?

I'm not the best fighter nor have I had formal training but I've been: punched, kicked and chopped in almost every region of body, taken/given elbows and flying knees and have been hit in the back of the head with more objects than I can recall yet - I have NEVER been knocked unconcious by ANYONE for even 1 second. ...until last night that is when I saw something on TV that *I guess* was too much for me to handle.

Deadly Women is one of those CSI murder re-enactment type…

Enough Election Shit!

Every commercial break an ad for some asshole candidate comes on. Every fucking commercial break. There is nothing positive in these commercials. They are nothing but quote mining, lies of omission, perversions of facts, straight lies and calling the other candidates "liberal" (as if anyone in this fucking state know what liberal means). I'm sick and tired of hearing about it. None of these idiots know what the fuck they are doing. No, that not true, they know what they are doing they are… Continue

DIRECTV and Christian Media...

I am getting ready to move and I was looking for options beyond Comcast Cable for my Wife and I in our new place. We were recently on the coast with some friends and the house we rented for the weekend had DIRECTV. I made a note that compression artifacts were not as apparent compared to Digital Cable and that it changed channels much more smoothly than does Comcast's offering. (They only had 10 channels or so unlocked so I couldn't really look into content much and since our friends have a… Continue

Someone please explain to me why

the US government is spending $650 million on the analog/digital converter box program.



Seriously, I don't get it. I know a good Democratic government can only run with an informed citizenry; however, I don't see how or why it is the government's responsibility to pay for people to be able to watch TV. TV is a luxury, not a right and certainly not a necessity. Of all the spending that is proposed in the latest economic stimulus package this one makes the least amount of sense to… Continue
