The Curse Of DC Comics

Brad-Meltzer-Identity-Crisis

I never wanted you to come back to Gotham. I always knew there was nothing here for you, except pain and tragedy. And I wanted something more for you than that. I still do.
–Alfred Pennyworth, “The Dark Knight Rises”

On this blog I once asked the question, “Is There A Superman Curse?” I presented the circumstantial evidence—the centerpiece of which was similar-sounding George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, famous for playing the character, both died relatively young. (Between the revelations concerning Kevin Spacey, who played Lex Luthor in Superman Returns, and the apparent “Smallville Girls Sex Slave Cult,” I may have to revise that particular post in the near future.)

The Future Of Humanity Is Elsagate

A few major mainstreamy articles have come out spotlighting what has been known in the fringe community as “Elsagate”—basically, those weird & often fetishistic videos for children featuring knock-offs of popular characters such as Elsa from Frozen, Spider-Man, and the Joker. (I’ve done my own “exposé” on the subject here)

And to my shock this whole sordid kiddie-vid enterprise extends way past the comic book superhero/Disney princess thing and embraces pretty much every main children’s fandom, including Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol—videos for both blithely showing characters being tortured in dentist’s chairs, pissed on, eaten, hypnotized, murdered, going to strip clubs, and committing suicide.

–V, “V For Vendetta”

Happy Guy Fawkes day, everyone. I though I’d share with you what I *think* are some of the first photographic examples of the Guy Fawkes/”V for Vendetta” mask used in connection with an anarchist protest, which I took myself.

A Look At Those Creepy Spider-Man And Elsa Videos On YouTube

Do you let your child browse on YouTube? Do you think they are just watching those toy videos and Minecraft demos? Well what if I told you that there is an entire underground of unlicensed superhero/Disney-themed live-action and cartoon videos with sometimes quite-sketchy content? And that this bizarro universe of videos were as easy to access as typing “Elsa Spider-Man” in YouTube’s search box?

Observations 10/11/17: Bad Batman

Sad Affleck Wallpaper

“I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over the decades. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick.”
–Ben Affleck, October 10 2017
