Hey Aileen, just wondering how things have been going for you and all. I don't come on the Club very often anymore but occasionally check in to see if any of the Old Gang is still alive. Hope all is well and don't be such a stranger :) BTW, in case you were scratching your head and going who the heck is Jaguar Wong(it's me Phantom Chicken)

Hey, just got your message on Twitter, and followed you back. Y'know, I thought your name sounded familiar somehow, but I just couldn't place it. Great getting back in touch again!

Yeah, a Deadhead and a MSTie -- how sad is that?

Hello Aileen. Just wanted to stop by and say I'm sorry that everyone seemed to misconstrue your points about Pearl-hate and sexism. Personally, I agree that it is suspect when people say "she ain't funny" and can't back it up. If people have reasons for not liking her or the Sci-fi era, I respectfully disagree. But I have no respect for knee-jerk reactions that are always unexamined but frequently espoused.

So I get the impression that you like both hip-hop and cubism. I was just looking for a topic to blog about for one of my web marketing clients, and I thought you might find this interesting:

You seem to have had a great idea, Clang. Everyone's getting way into Space Mutiny Day. I've been cracking up at the names and the posts since this morning.

I was watching 'Teenage Crimewave' the other night after the 'kishka' posting and noticed Mike singing something about "who stole my kishka" at the beginning of the space deli sketch... I looked it up and found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAmLXrMv4-c

I’m about to contradict myself. While I’m generally “for” Season 11 and really enjoyed some episodes, there’s something that feels off about it to me. I think I know what it is: Almost all of the movies are children’s films. I say this because almost half of them are definitely aimed at kids, but as well, by the era that these movies were made, films with rubber monsters or dinosaurs were also aimed at a juvenile audience. During the Comedy Central/SyFy seasons, the crappy horror/scifi films were aimed at teenagers and actually intended to frighten, with the exception of the serials.

The reason it feels off to me is that the movie-making bar is so much lower from the start for kids’ movies. Children will sit quietly mesmerized by the worst piece of rubbish, and most filmmakers basically rely on those low expectations. Kids don’t care about character development, rational plot or motivation, and almost require no real tension or menace. Ragging on such weaknesses is just too easy and doesn’t offer the opportunity for true vitriol. Movies that are aimed at adults and fail dismally are a true test of incompetence and are better fodder for a high level of bitter riffing.

At least I think so.

What do you think, sirs?
