Review: Black Panther

  I’m going to be honest. This is a great movie. Yay. The problem, is that I complain. That’s what I do. It’s hard to write jokes about something you really liked. So I’m going to have to scrape the bottom of the proverbial barrel this time, and nitpick.

Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I understand that when watching scifi, like superhero movies, you need to suspend disbelief. Just enjoy the story. Star Wars is a story about space wizards. But is it really to much to ask for there to be some internal logic? I swear, the Force in this movie works like Superman’s powers. His powers can …

Biography: Jeanne de Clisson

I recently found out about Jeanne de Clisson, when someone on Twitter said that Taylor Swift was the most badass woman of all time. Someone else replied by mentioning Jeanne de Clisson, and some of her deeds, so I looked it up. Wow. Such a cool story. So now I shall share it with you. …

Review: Justice League

Justice League, assemble! The culmination of a couple of years worth of half brained DC movies is here, with the superhero team up movie, Justice League.

Sexual Harassment

Disclaimer: In the court of law, a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Most of the men mentioned below have not been found guilty. The court of public opinion, however, is driven by emotion, is often quick to judgement, and not always correct. That said, I’m like 90% sure these men are guilty of …

My favorite is the Sexy Ebola Nurse from a few years ago. The other is that people will be outraged over a racist costume. This year’s …

New Name. New Domain. Same Complaining.

As you may have noticed, I have a new domain, chrisdantes.com. Did I sell my website? Nope. I legally changed my name. I’d like to explain why. Background I was born Christopher Asbury. In the second grade, my teacher asked if I preferred “Chris” or “Christopher”. I didn’t really have an answer, so I picked …

Suicide

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but after Chester Bennington died, even I thought it was too soon. The sad reality, though, is that talking about suicide is kind of like talking about gun laws. If the rule is that “you can’t talk about it shortly after an event”, then you’ll never …

Nerd Cred / Nerd Acceptance

A few days ago, I posted a rant that mentioned how nerds don’t like change. To prove that I truly can complain about anything, I’m now going to rant about the exact opposite position. Today, I’m going to talk about how a certain subset of nerds need to embrace change. I don’t know if it’s …

America’s Changing Attitude Towards Russia

How the fuck did the Republicans in the US go from “watch out for the reds” to “hey, Russia’s not that bad”, in less than one hundred years? Seriously? We spent decades in a Cold War stalemate with the Russians, which was a giant chess game where the world was our chess board. Republican Senator …
