not even worth red text

Amanda Palmer is such an oddly persistent punching bag for weird internet sweatbeards, I'd like to think a guy who raps about making fun of anime clubs and novelty pirate rappers would know better than to stoop to that level.

Recognizing that something is a joke doesn't make said joke actually funny. Unless you're in the studio audience for a sitcom.

Counterpoint: successfully funding a million-dollar kickstarter and then touring without paying guest musicians and asking for more donations mid-show and referring to yourself as Amanda loving Palmer means you deserve any and all scorn and mockery.

Palmer is very low hanging fruit, but just because the fruit is low hanging doesn't mean there's not reasons to pick it.

I think J has also gone on record that, while he isn't necessarily ashamed of those songs, they're also not really points of pride for him.

Amanda Palmer hate goes way deeper than MRAs. I mean have you ever even heard The Dresden Dolls? Hipsters have been hating on her long before it was cool.

Her innovations in turning cultural cache in to free labor and $$$ is just the latest, most visible shittiness.

I forget if it was J or Collision but one of them DEFINITELY mentioned how awful the Dresden Dolls were in an earlier episode

It was in the Flowers in the Attic episode.

Oh my god, "exquisitely wrought novel" is actually the publisher's own promotional text.

Also the words "Kevin J. Anderson" are the biggest threats in that book's description.

He kinda looks like a horse doesn't he?


Clockwork Angels is a solid album musically, but the plot is typical fantasy drivel about a society with a watchmaker that presents deterministic accounts of every individual life. Also, the album itself is not actually that steampunk besides the reference to the titular angels, some type of mechanized religious symbols, so I don't know how they inject the setting into the novel. Constant references to cogs and steam machinery?

...I kinda want to read it, just to know

Without looking I'd guess that someone did a full 2112 novel since the song itself tells a story in its entirety.

Fake edit: Well, I was basically right.

2112 was Neil Peart basically adapting a book that's already been featured on IDEOTV, Ayn Rand's Anthem.

For some reason, there's a sequel called Clockwork Lives.

I got the album when it came out and loved it (still do), didn't know anything about a book, then saw the book at Barnes & Noble one day. The "Kevin J. Anderson" on the cover was a major red flag, and the story was hardly a point in the album's favor anyway, but even then I wasn't prepared for how cripplingly dull to read the pages I skimmed were. I don't know why Neil Peart got such a hack to put the book together for him, because he's actually a pretty good writer (if you like bike and motorcycle travelogues).

ed: I'm not too far into the episode yet, but I'm not looking forward to an hour and a half of auditory mosquito bites every time they say "purt".

ed 2: Forgot how bad they also are at pronouncing words that aren't surnames.

Isn't the pronunciation of "Peart" pretty much the "Actually, whales are mammals" of Rush fans

I almost had an entry for that, but I couldn't decide between the premises I had, and then a bunch of stuff came up that kept me from just sitting down and writing. Good to know that this is only the "first" contest and that I'll likely have another chance next year.

My favorite has to be the one with the guy (?) watching from a doorway as a couple (??) have sex (???). To be so vivid and incomprehensible at once, on purpose, is the mark of some kind of genius.

I got tied up with a bunch of stuff and sending them something slipped my mind. I probably could have just used an excerpt from my own terrible Nanowrimo novel from about ten years ago in which I discovered that Nanowrimo is a terrible, terrible way to write.
