I wish there was a listing site for murder houses or haunted houses that are being sold for dirt cheap because I would buy either in a heart beat. What's a ghost gonna do? Rattle plates until it wakes me up from my drunken stupor? Ha, good luck. Or a murder house. How many separate murders can take place in one house? I'm sure statistically speaking I'd be safer from murder in a murder house than a non-muder house.

I just watched a cheesy rear end horror movie on Amazon Prime called Bad Ben about a middle aged balding white guy who bought a house for suspiciously cheap to flip for good money. He ends up being a Great Value Frank Reynolds and just argues with the ghost about how he's staying and you can get the hell out. Not scary at all but not a bad way to kill and hour and a half. I've watched shittier movies.

Holy poo poo, Amazon has been trying to get me to watch that for a while and I always resisted it because it just looked like flaming rear end but that description kind of has me sold. Store-brand Frank Reynolds arguing with a ghost sounds hilarious.

Like don't go expecting it to be great but if you got some videogames to play or something go for it.

This movie is seriously incredible. He also made two sequels about the same house/dude that are equally amazing.

Edit: he also does live question answer session is on Facebook. Sometimes he wears a Fedora and it's amazing as well.

Now see I didn't get much out of the second movie because the couple just wasn't as entertaining as Not Frank but Badder Ben was fun as hell too. I wasn't expecting to enjoy them when I watched the first but nope it was solid as hell.

Only the ones that would’ve made it to the egg count as a person. Everyone knows that. And yet when you try to argue that life begins at being the most capable sperm in any particular load, jeez do people get worked up.

I once had someone tell me that using a condom was killing a baby because it was preventing the sperm from reaching the egg and she couldn't explain why having a period wasn't killing a baby since it was preventing an egg from getting fertilized

You guys got me trying to track down a show from the mid 90s now and I'm having no luck.

It was a power rangers esque show with teenagers who fight bad guys in robots(?) and all I remember about it was I saved up to get the combining action figure set and it was no articulation and was super boring. I want to say the legs were formed out of a tank like vehicle that slid over an Ultraman looking guys legs but I could be wrong.

Wait, so there's a game that generates different monsters based, somehow, on what audio CDs you put into the console? How does that work?

I always found it pretty weird that the Beetlejuice cartoon existed. And Betelgeuse was a friendly prankster in it. And the Maitlands just weren't in it at all. It's basically got nothing to do with the movie.

Unrelatedly, it always annoys me that the movie is called Beetlejuice instead of Betelgeuse. There's even a joke in the film about his name being spelled that way.

There's five CD based one a couple word based and one drawing based. How have you managed to miss out on Monster Rancher?

Not a TV episode, but I was thinking about Weird Al recently and one of his songs, The Night Santa Went Crazy has aged badly in that no one in the US of twenty years ago knew that "gyped" was a racial slur. There's probably some other stuff with the same problem.

Most people in the US now don't know gyped is a racial slur.

It didn't turn to, it was bad from the beginning. Better examples are Red Dwarf or Jonathan Creek, which despite coming back for only a few episodes after multi-year breaks are still absolute garbage these days. Whether the seasons are 3 episodes or 52, sometimes a show's just run its course and should end.

I think I only caught one season of the new Dwarf but if memory serves it should have ended a season sooner than it actually did

The guy who runs the till at a comic shop I go to says Funkopops on the whole are on their way out, having been demoted to half a shelf, and I want this to be true.

I hate funkopops because they hedge their bets and make figures from every licence. Does anyone remember the game Evolve? Yes even that flop got funkopops. I hate these things for being ugly artless lumps of plastic made with a surface-level understanding of the licence. There's one of Morty Smith holding the seeds he has to put up his butt, which is weak since that was one scene in the pilot episode years ago.

I can appreciate a Vader T-shirt or a Beeping Triforce keychain because those can be used as normal objects

Not so much an episode, but a small pop culture segment from SNL's Weekend Update. I think it's a Tina Fey/Jimmy Fallon episode, but the exchange goes something like:

Fallon: *something about the Lord of the Rings movies, gets characters names wrong.*
Fey: *Corrects the characters' names*
Fallon: *coughing* "Nerd" *coughing*

Given how hugely important and popular the nerd/geek stuff has gotten in the last few years, the joke in 2014-onward would be the person NOT knowing the names of all these character being called stupid for their mistake.

It's 2018 and I still take joy in telling my co-workers their nerds when they start talking about GoT. It's just a fun low hanging fruit joke.

I like The Raven because it's basically about a guy who becomes so obsessed with the occult after losing his wife that he sees dark omens everywhere, even in a raven getting into his house. Just shoo the bird out mate, it's lost. It's a pest, not a prophet.

When I was an edgy preteen in junior high The Raven popped up in our reading book and I tried to get away with saying he got the bird as a pet after Lenore died and it was a poem about how he was hoping his pet would never leave him like she did.

I did not get a good grade on thst despite having backed my interpretation up with lines from the poem :negative:

Edgy 20 something me loved this video

Back when Rodney King was the major police abuse case in recent memory. Back when police officers, beating a black man who was undeniably guilty of a crime, turned into a major civil rights case with international headlines and before the internet too.

Hindsight Jesus. Today police officers murder innocent black people left and right on camera and nothing happens. They do it with the support of half the nation and lukewarm condemnation by the other half.
