On The Best Worst Movie

@theharpoon Yes, I've seen it! It's certainly bad in every way -- acting, writing, staging, direction, ability to keep stuff in focus -- but it's more like a terrible, failed art film than a holy-bananas-what-the-hell-were-they-thinking trainwreck like "Troll 2" or "The Room." It's worth seeing, if for no other reason than it was immortalized by Patton Oswalt, but I didn't get the same "so bad it's good" enjoyment from it as I have from other terrible films I've seen. (And I've seen so many. "Stuntrock", anyone?)

On Dinner and a First Person Shooter

@jen325 Buy TORCHLIGHT instead! It's cheap ($10-15), comes from some really earnest indie developers and has a huge ecosystem of user-built mods and customizations. Even better: it can be run on very old machines and doesn't require a (*spit*) always-on inernet connection.

On William Gibson on the Internet in 1997

For a good writer, that is a tragically mixed metaphor. His otherness met a river which is a mother?
