    Man, it is really surreal seeing all of those vidya villains together, in a Disney production no less. Still, this is a great concept and I'm really looking forward to it.
  • Just in time.

    @kaazu: Considering how old that song is, no.
  • I am totally ok with Sean Bean as Thor.
  • That would be a death sentence for Thor
  • edited June 2012
    Which is stronger: Sean Bean's ontological death sentence, or Thor's protagonist and ripe for corporate exploitment plot armor? The real summer blockbuster showdown.

    Besides, he hasn't died in EVERYTHING. Just, y'know...almost everything.
  • He lived in Silent Hill. I can't think of anything else.

    The man is a walking contradiction.
  • Well, he won't survive the sequel if that counts.
  • I can't decide if getting killed in a sequel counts as living or not.

    I'm assuming he dies at some point in Game of Thrones. only up to Season 1 Ep 5.

    Oh. He wasn't killed In Ronin, although he was exited rather unceremoniously.

  • Anita is my friend IRL. I've been helping her with research for this project. I have to say I'm not terribly surprised by the horrible, misogynistic comments, because this is totally not the first time she's gotten them.

    What did surprise me was all the weird "Jew" comments. Hint: she's not Jewish. Of course, kids in middle school in Michigan said the same kind of shit to me and used it as an excuse to physically attack me, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised.
  • Is "trigger warning" really a commonly employed phrase? I've seen it twice in two days now, but never before.

    I will say, however, that I'd like to get 30k+ dollars to buy and play vidjergames. I'm thinking of kickstarting a gender-skewed literary analysis of the entire body of work on Literotica. I don't know if the male submitters there have ever spoken to a woman besides their moms (for whom they shamefully lust). I will make millions.

    It's a shame, regardless of anything else, that people can't criticize something without "hey fagit" or "goddamn kike" or whatever. People are free to like or dislike things, but it saddens me when their most clearly articulable reason is blind categorical hatred of the author's "type."
  • I imagine it's hard to let some of those posts hurt your feelings. "Shave your hair and don't wear earrings" is so far into insane, it's probably easier just to laugh it off.

    Then again, those sorts of comments are just indicative of the less forceful, less obvious shit that goes down, so maybe not.

    Then AGAIN, if I had 30k to my name from Kickstarter, I would laugh at those Youtube commenters all the way to the bank.

    Jon: "Trigger warning" is frequently used in feminist circles when discussing things that may bring up painful memories of trauma, most commonly rape.

    Dave: These are definitely not all the comments. People very often threaten to rape and murder her.

    There's also been a coordinated 4chan asshole effort to shut down her kickstarter, so some of those are16 year old 4chan idiots trying to be funny.
  • Dave where is your kick starter for Jumping Through Boss Doors special edition DVD's. You could use all the money to get a really sweet recording/streaming setup plus for manufacturing the DVD's. I have no idea how much that all would cost but I bet you could get people on kickstarter to pay for it.

    Tip for modern adulterers: If you’re planning to cheat on your wife of 10 years by awkwardly hitting on the model seated next to you on your flight out of Los Angeles, make sure she isn’t live-tweeting the entire miserable experience to her 13,000 followers.
  • Also Youtube comments are basically the bottom end of communication on the internet, but it still sucks. Your friend could have posted a video of 30 seconds of silence with her face on camera and got a similiar amount of sexist comments, they just wouldn't have had her video series to latch onto as a target.

    My video that has the most comments/views by a long shot, the one where I kick a zombie porno actress to death and feel bad about it, has the highest percentage of "missing the point" I have ever seen on the internet. The comments are split 50-50 between "yeah, you showed that bitch!" and "HEY GUYS HER NAME IS NENJA SAMEJON WHICH IS LIKE JENNA JAMESON.

    Dave: These are definitely not all the comments. People very often threaten to rape and murder her.

    Yeah, I didn't see any of those, but that's just to be expected regarding anything with a girl in it. I just have to hope that the people who receive comments like that don't let it get them down, because it's not gonna change in the near future, so they just gotta be strong about it.

    Believe me, it's my dream to kickstart anything and quit my boring job that I dislike. :D Buttttttt... the like 200+ t-shirts I still own suggests that the fanbase won't put up. I took a glance at that girl's videos and she gets like 70k views per, that's $30,000 worth of views. Most of our videos hover between 500 and 1k.

    A recording/streaming setup isn't anything special these days. A laptop and a mixer is all you'd need. The bigger issue is your upload speed. Kickstarter to get business class lines to your home.

    Of course there is pro equipment, but unless you're doing bumpers and transitions, live, you can get by without it.
  • I know your right, but why you got to blot all the hope in the world out, I'm good for at least the same amount I gave to Endless Fluff. Start small I guess? Maybe if you had a small successful one you could do a bigger production the next time. Even if it fails at least we will get to see a video of you and graz introducing yourself to strangers through a camera which should be entertaining.

    Also I don't know about your living situation but 30k wouldn't let me quit my job, it would just erase all my remaining college debt and buy a decent used car, hows that for a downer.
  • edited June 2012
    Yeah, 30k probably wouldn't let me quit my job either, but it's nice to dream. :D 30k would erase 1/6th of Graz's student loans. Womp womp.

    30k would leave me with $100k of student loan debt and $10k of automobile loan debt =D

    I am 31 so I have had more time to pay it off but my loans were obviously nowhere near as large as yours. That shit is gross.

  • No kidding. And I'll be 29 this year, soooo...
  • Thinking about College Debt makes me sad. Thanks a lot for ruining my day.
  • You are going to have $6 of debt, stop cryin'.

    If you see Anita, tell her I really dig what she does on Feminist Frequency. I think it's an awesome site, and it's one of the things that sparked my current interest in feminism.
  • My parents paying for most of my college doesn't make me feel any better.
  • edited June 2012
    It should. You should feel very good about it. Use that freedom to do things in life others cannot.

    And be appreciative!

    Ditto. I check out her youtube channel every now and then, and I appreciate her work.
  • I've relayed your comments to her!
  • Relevant video via Roger Ebert's blog:

    Yeah some people, like Jon have to squat in apartments with no running water! At least I think that was you on the bookclub.

    Also British people use better words for insults.
  • that makes me feel worse
  • I did, indeed, squat for 8 months, 6 weeks of which were without running water. When they repossessed the next-door abandoned apt we were using to store our rainwater, we decided it was time to get out. I want a stable job already.
  • ^^ The good thing of working while studying is no loans...but it takes forever, unless you're more dedicated than I am (not too hard). If you feel that bad about it then just get a job and pay your own way through college.
  • A c.c. will be cheaper and usually will be able to get you an in for a job.

    Well she did go to youtube as her source of comments, which is something I expected those youtube comments to be.

    I guess in the defense of hot video game girls being made, it is done by guys, which is really the source of the problem. I can only assume that if you gather every character/3d modeler in the game industry, over half have never been with a woman before and have the belief that all women on this earth should be as hot as Playboy/Hustler models they grew up lusting over. And it doesn't help that some women (well, I wanna say half) out there believe they need to be "just an object" to attract the opposite sex without ever having a need to develop a personality/common sense/ "a brain".

    What Anita is doing is something I do get behind, even though I would be lying if I said I didn't like buxom women as much as the next guy. I do enjoy 80's anime women who not only had looks, but the brains and personality to back that up, which that same logic can be used for game girls. So yea, go Anita, I should probably shut up now.
