Category: Top X Lists


Being yourself is nothing to be ashamed of, including if you’re objectively garbage. Of course it can be embarrassing to admit what an oddball you are compared to everyone else in society, like when other people do their laundry or taxes and you yourself just end up drinking wine and watching Supernatural on Netflix (which also proves what dark tastes you have), tee-hee. Oops. But here’s the thing: you’re just being you. And that’s awesome!

This list will consist of other signs that you may be a bigger nerd and weirdo than others, and remember, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it: Continue reading

Another year that felt more like a month (if that) comes to a close. In my mind, this has been quite the year for movies and TV – and other things – thus shaving down my annual “year in review” to just 10 entires has been difficult. Either way, you know the drill: I may alter this list at some point in the future, for whatever reason, and some of this year’s gems have not yet reached me (The Shape of Water would probably have been on this list if it didn’t have its Sweden premiere in 2018 instead). Don’t forget to scroll down for my “runners-up” and stinkers, as well.

Also important: I have dedicated much of this post to discussing a certain “TV item”, so I may be briefer than usual in my initial listicle. I won’t reveal what I’m talking about, but if you know or follow me, you can probably surmise what this TV item is. Let’s rock. Continue reading

I haven’t made a post like this in a while. I only ever make helpful listicles about things that are interesting, because that’s just the sort of astute genius my Wormtongue-looking stepfather raised. Thus I invite you to enjoy this list of choice items from the everyday discourse of people who aren’t me. Stance and political affiliation doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, I’m kinda just watching ants destroy each other as I observe their, in the cosmic scheme of things, ultimately inconsequential squabble, eventually switching to a Chrome tab that contains more Homestar Runner episodes. I don’t know how that makes me arrogant. Continue reading

Last year, I posted a listicle about random YouTube channels that are just the right amount of “out there” that you need to see them at least once before you commit seppuku out of protest against JonTron saying more words. I have literally nothing important that I need to be doing right now, thus I’ve concluded I may as well post another one just like it. I’ve touched on more than a few recent instances of online drama this year already, so I decided something as nightmarish as some of the entries in this list would make for some perfectly light-hearted escapism. Glad you agree. Continue reading

Well, here we are. As messy as 2016 was for many, it just zipped right by, didn’t it? I don’t know what it is but whereas the year 2015 felt, to me, like it was at least two years long, I feel like this year never took a breather and consequently ended up going way too fast (Christmas 2015 still feels as recent as this Christmas). Either way, I’m trying to accept the good stuff it gave me. Fun activities and travels with the new schoolmates, moving into a new apartment and, of course, all the countless interesting movies we got.

As chance would have it, though, I’m only going to look at the ones I liked (primarily). There are some 2016 films I’ve yet to see, others aren’t released here until next year, and some of the actual entries on this list had their release dates last year – everywhere except here. I plan on updating these lists in the future, the more movies I see from a given year, although I do enjoy having some kind of summary at the end of the year and reflect on that which we’ve been given.

I have praised and roasted my fair share of YouTubers during my prestigious time here at WordPress. You’ve all heard my thoughts on that funny gamer man (who needs no more shit thrown at him what with recent “YouTube Drama” debacles and such), those “Reactionists” and that one drama queen vegan who never shuts the fuck up, so I figured I should expose you to some content creators out there who are lesser known to most and more well-known than they should be to me. You can thank and/or lynch me later. Continue reading

The time has once again come to either go out and party or sit inside like a hermit and write about what the past year had to offer in terms of movies. Predictably, I am here to do the latter.

I should as per tradition point out that this is simply my personal recap of the past year’s most enjoyable film experiences, so if there are films “missing” from the list, it’s either because I didn’t go to a screening of those or I just didn’t like them as much as everyone else. I recently viewed some of the “Best of the year” lists by YouTube critic YourMovieSucksDotOrg, who has repeatedly made the case that you can’t very well make a “Best of the year list” just because the end of the year is here, when you haven’t seen a supposedly sufficient amount. Since I partially agree with that but still want to do a recap of the past year in movies, mainly because I enjoy doing it, I’ve decided to make a “Favorites” list instead. I would consider making a legitimate “Best of” list in the future when I’ve seen more movies, but YMS does such a good job of that himself that I scarcely think I need to.

Also, I know that several YourMovieSucks fans will accuse me of only caring about views and money because I’ve chosen to still post my list at the end of the year as usual, instead of waiting to see some more movies. I wish those criticisms held water because that would imply that I’m making money off of this blog and that would kick some serious ass. Continue reading

Senator Claire McCaskill recently made it big on Tumblr (she got to be in a gif-set with 20 000+ notes) when her clip from last Monday’s Late Night with Stephen Colbert started spreading amongst the users. In the clip, she lists some things that she claims are topics on which we no longer need the opinions of men, even if it mostly sounds like she’s listing shit she’s tired of hearing her husband talk about when he gets home at night.

This included: what women should do with their bodies, who the next James Bond should be, how to pronounce “gif”, Star Wars, pantsuits, selfies, Shonda Rhimes, curtains, carbs, millennials, body hair, religion, gluten, Harry Potter, nut allergy, Star Wars again, art, the correct way of cooking a Thanksgiving turkey, and ethics in gaming journalism. This all seemed like a simple, light-hearted joke at first, so I elected not to question things like why Claire would lump the abortion debate together with people whining about James Bond, why the “gif vs. jif” discussion would be any less uninteresting if women talked about it, or why she would appear on a show run by Stephen Colbert if she’s sick of hearing men talk about Star Wars (especially, I imagine, if their rant stems from missing the point of a satirical joke made by an MST3K star on Twitter). Continue reading

There’s a reason jokes sometimes make people cringe. They’re predictable and have already been done before to the extent that you want to strangle anyone who so much as talks about the subject matter of the joke ever again, comically or not. At least that’s one of the most common reasons, other ones being that the person’s “joke” is just a depthless reference to 9/11 disguised as “edgy” humor or that it has any semblance of a relation to My Little Pony and why feminists are evil. Either or.

I felt like not doing anything useful today so here’s a petty and insignificant rant about some really trite types of jokes that I hate. Sounds fun, right? No? Don’t care. Continue reading

 

2014 has come to an end and hoo boy, what a year it has been! Graduations, concerts, new universities, Greece trips, ever so charming hate mail and, most importantly, great new movies. With that, I welcome you to my collection of the 10 greatest movies of 2014 (and the obligatory runners-up)!

Before I get to the films I’ve selected as the best of the year, I will remind my readers, as always, that this is a very personal list and that I haven’t had the time to see movies that others have cited as great. WhiplashNightcrawler and Gone Girl, for instance, are recently released movies that I’ve heard people praise but they won’t be seen here. Basically, don’t get too mad if your favourites are left out. We done here? Good, then let’s roll. Continue reading
