So June has passed us by. This month felt longer than it should have been, like I’m expecting it to go on for another 30 days at least. Lets take a quick gander at some of these stories (some don’t need further explaining) I could see this month. Yes, I know there is stuff I’ve missed. But as I’ve said before, if I managed to cover EVERYTHING that happened, even local news of every country, then I’d be still working on this Month Review and the final product would be 88 panels long.
Also, the month reviews are from….
Guy: Random, we know this already. Just get on with it!
Ummm, oh um yes, very well *clears throat*
The Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner fiasco made me wonder why was this such a public manner? Well I know the real answer is “To distract us all from the TPP” but I digress. Everyone came out of the woodwork to have an opinion about this person should be called now.
Without sounding callous, I don’t really care what she’s called now. Why? Because it’s none of my business! Happy for her in the long run but this news does not impact me and I’ll carry on as normal.
Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” Universe really shows me exactly what’s going on. The better title should have been “The Politically Correct Marvel Universe!” because suddenly all your favourite characters have either swapped race or gender. All because Marvel wants to appease Social Justice Warriors who really have no interest in comics, but just watch the movies and need something to reblog about.
X-23 is now Wolverine? Miles Morales replacing Peter Parker? Lady Thor is still a thing? Why do I get the feeling we’re back in the 1990’s again? You remember don’t you? All those stupid decisions, changes and relaunched that nearly caused Marvel to go bankrupt?
It is deeply patronising to take established characters, and suddenly make them gay, trans, black, female, Hispanic, Asian etc etc. When you could, and I’m just thinking out loud here, create new content. It cannot be difficult guys, even Stan Lee is telling you that!
While the reception maybe good for now, but like Obama’s administration this shit is gonna go south faster than you can say “Trans Pacific Partnership!”
Shia LeBeouf returned from actor oblivion and is somewhat socially relevant again. That’s nice.
Ah, Uwe Boll.
I guess he finally got tired of beating up Something Awful contributors to say “Ya, mine movies are pretty guud!” and done us all a favour by finally fucking off! His little rant did scream sour grapes to me, because nobody really contributed to his Kickstarter instead of say Kung Fury, Yooka-Laylee, Mighty No.9 and others. It can’t be the fact he didn’t try with movies such as House of the Dead or Bloodrayne, it couldn’t be the fact he doesn’t handle criticism well in a manner that would make SuperPsyguy look like a saint.
No, it’s all George Clooney, J-Lo and The Avengers fault.
Yeah I’m not going to miss him either… Oh what’s that? He’s making a new movie in 2016.
God hates us.
Rik Mayall’s death still hits me pretty hard. Taken way before his time for the man still had years left in him. Sadly, he got some company recently when Christopher Lee, Dusty Rhodes and James Horner joined him on that casting couch in the sky.
I saw people saying “It’s 2014 all over again!” and to that I say bollocks. 2009 and 2014 will be difficult years to beat and hopefully 2015 can control itself.
The Smiler Roller Coaster had an accident, injuring several people and was closed down permanently. Now the cause of the accident is unknown (unless they said as of typing this up) but it does seem to be just that, an accident. Yet Kat Burley took it upon herself to demonise the park owner on national TV in what can be described as “a one woman lynch mob!”
I said this to Angry Joe, and I’ll say it to Kat Burley.
Professionalism, make friends with it.
This guy was just doing his job and publicly apologised for what happened, yet Burley’s actions were disgusting and unforgivable. Thankfully, the general public echo that view due to Sky News receiving over a thousand complaints about the interview.
Maybe someone should stick her on that roller coaster.
The Charleston Church shootings was a racist terrorist attack, which people can tell me “It wasn’t terrorism” all they like. It was a racially motivated assault on the innocent. It sickens me that most news networks disregarded it. Which was great to see Jon Stewart call out hacks like Fox News on this bullshit.
It does confuse me how Americans dismiss the issue and claim “this isn’t racial or terror based” bullshit assholes, this guy killed 9 people in cold blood BECAUSE they’re black. You can on and on about how ISIS in this big threat to “the free world” yet turn a blind eye to your own citizens being gun downed by hateful individuals, motivated by racial bigotry?
This led to the confederate flag being discarded and the general lee from Dukes of Hazard being taken off store shelves. The problem from me isn’t just the flag, but the whole town this shooting took place is one giant confederate shitburg.
You can pretend all you like that racism isn’t an issue anymore, but it is. This was a racially motivated shooting that saw the deaths of 9 innocent people. Spare a thought for those who lost love ones recently.
Hopefully one day, we will all live in peace…. Hopefully.
From Racism to….. Who really cares about the Powerpuff Girls anymore?
Like every kids show from the 90’s, this is getting a reboot whether it likes it or not. The show is recasting the original 3 voice actors of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup with fresh, young and new talent.
This has gotten the original VA’s, mainly Tara Strong, a little upset.
To avoid any confusion over what I’ll say in a moment, I want to say I respect Tara. She is apart of my childhood/teenagehood (if that’s even a thing) and my only criticism of her work is that awful Harley Quinn “I’m a 7 year old sounding tough!” voice she does lately.
But to offer a reasonable piece of criticism to Tara on this one, how many voices do you do for kids shows these days? Fuck I’ve lost count to be honest so I think you’ll survive not having one job…. Vs the 1000 you have at the moment.
Seeing you act like that is kinda sad, I mean you’re a professional…. Not Rina-Chan.
The Austerity Marches in London help demonstrate why the UK is in need of some course correction. I have asked this question to a lot of people and they can’t really explain in. So can someone explain to me why the rich get a tax cut and get to keep their money off shore (so tax avoidance basically) but the Plebs who have no money are given a tax rise?
That for the life of me makes no fucking sense. You want to squeeze every last penny out of the poor, till they’re dead and dying in the street. Only to let people who earn millions when they barely do anything to warrant such money get tax cuts.
This is unacceptable.
Looking at how people handled the Charleston Church shootings, to the Austerity Marches, how can anyone claim this is a “free, equal and just society?”
If you’re rich, old and mostly white. You’re in the club.
If you’re none of those thing. Then die in a fire Pleb!
Things cannot, I repeat, cannot go on like this.
I guess the only highlight for me was how Russell Brand was exposed for the hypocrite shitebag that he is.
Rebels and the underclass don’t live in posh penthouses you twat!
Finally, what can I say about same sex marriage? Apart from people suspect it was a distraction so Obama could try and pass the TPP.
I look at this as a natural step humanity must take. It was amusing to see those pastors who said “I’ll set myself on fire if they pass this!!” suddenly get cold feet on the manner. All joking aside, I am happy for my same sex brothers and sisters (I guess calling them gay is a bit taboo now?) and hopefully homophobia, along with austerity, racism and other evils will be a thing of the past.
TPP: Haha, don’t count on it… Now buy a pair of Nike trainers.
