Isn’t it amazing how a group of adult men can completely take over a show meant for little girls; making it virtually impossible to search or do anything related to the show without being exposed to over-sexualized, misogynistic, sexist crap, and they get a documentary that praises them for stepping outside of their perceived gender roles? Meanwhile 45% of the gaming community is comprised of women and I get dick pics and rape threats if I try and go on xbox live.

This is actually a pretty good point.

blog-of-some-guy asked: Do you ever feel sometimes that fans of a series (*coughs*Kill la Kill*coughs*) care and speculate more about (often non-existent) shippings rather than the actual themes and characters of a show? Can you come up with a reason for this?


Yes. Yeeeeeeeeees. Yes. The answer to this is yes copied-and-pasted a thousand times.

The reason for this is probably twofold.

A) People obsessed with shipping are sexually frustrated. A large portion of them are in their teens and early twenties, and hey, they like anime and video games and stuff: they’re probably not social butterflies. They may not be getting that itch scratched, (“single player” only accomplishes so much,) and here’s this entire community based around parading their favorite characters’ sexualities as “media criticism” whether it matters or not. Talking about fictional characters’ naughty bits makes them feel smart and adult and turns them on all at the same time! Win-win!

B) People obsessed with shipping have found a place to belong in the above, established group of people obsessed with shipping. They have friends who talk about shipping all day, so they talk about shipping all day, and they belong! This forms a large portion of pretty much every fandom, it’s a universal sort of thing.

But as much as it’s bound to piss off the ~shipping community~ or whatever, I think we can all agree that you’d care less about the frankly boring conceit of which fictional character is mashing their privates against those of another fictional character if you were actualizing that fascination against some actual privates and releasing that tension.

It’d be funny if it didn’t get in the way of actual media discussion so damn hard. And sometimes even media *creation!* It absolutely ruined Avatar: The Last Airbender. Killed it. The romance in that show near the end is garbage, and 90% of Korra’s content on the whole is garbage, largely because of the creators feeding on their community’s obsession with shipping. Not speculation on my part, this is stuff they actually said in the interviews on the special features of Avatar. And that sucks.

I wish I shared Dan & James’ boundless optimism, but their latest Extra Credits video does speak to something important. A little while ago, I shared an article I found about a trans* journalist who was ridiculed and dismissed at a gaming convention in Europe. I used the article as a jumping-off point to talk about how we, in the gaming community, are becoming the bullies that we tried to escape.

(Sidenote: Microsoft offered a non-apology for the incident, which can be viewed here: http://www.advocate.com/politics/transgender/2013/09/30/microsoft-apologizes-trans-gamer-humilated-comedian-onstage )

Basically,  I’m taking this video as corroboration of my original thesis: it is up to us, as gamers, to show our fellow community members the love and respect they deserve - do not be complicit with the bile spewn by the worst of our community.


Bob Ross is ex-USAF. He got into painting as a career because he vowed to reject the “mean” and “tough” person one has to be in the military.

This might make him a stronger person that most of us could ever hope to be.

…Dorothy Gale doesn’t actually have a job, unless you count how she becomes a princess in the Oz books.

Jaeger pilot. I tend to go a while between movies. I’mma need a Drift-mate, though.

Reporting for duty LET’S GO PUNCH THINGS.

Can I do a TV show instead? That means I’m a graphic novel writer and artist, and seeing-eye vampire for balls-to-the-wall female private investigator. Aw yis.

Wait, so does that make me Morticia, or Gomez, or… Who the hell even *is* the protagonist in the Addams Family movie?

Idle Wealthy regardless, DUH.

Astronaut-turned-Jupiter-born star child. YES!

DC-based journalist. Yay?

Sonic Screwdriver (Doctor Who mocktail)

3 oz Orange juice
1.5 oz Rose’s Blue Raspberry Mix
.5 oz Lime juice
3 oz Ginger ale

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a highball glass over ice and stir. Yell “Geronimo!” and serve. It doesn’t do wood.

Doctor Who returns to TV next weekend with the 50th Anniversary special! It’s incredible to think about how a show could stick around and adapt as long as it has. As a giant Whovian, I had to create a drink to celebrate. There are many sonic screwdriver cocktails on the net already and I thought it might be time to create something that everyone enjoyed. Make sure to check out the rest of the Geek & Sundry Vlogs this week for other Doctor Who related content and if you like geeky cocktails (which I know you do) subscribe so that you can see more episodes of Critical Hit Cocktails with Mitch Hutts. Also, make sure to check out the link in the video comments for your chance to win some Doctor Who swag in a DW contest run by Geek & Sundry! Cheers!


And here I thought a Sonic Screwdriver was just vodka & orange soda.
