Other sights that you will encounter on this guided tour include a stupid dog, nuclear holidays, space cactuses, vampires, timeloops, recursive TARDISes, familiar faces, the power of math, the most loathed face in the history of Who and much more!

Backseat Critique: The Raid 2

It’s hammertime as Diamanda Hagan, Teddy The Minion and The Avatar of Decent Humour give the second movie under the “The Raid” banner a good, hard glance. What can they report? Is it as good as the first part? How does the long-lost son of Bruce Campbell feature into this? Can Hagan still be shocked by violent scenes? Who would win in a fight between Bruce Lee and the Terminator? How is the mudwrestling scene? And what are Hagancat and Minioncat up to in the meantime?

All this and more in this edition of Backseat Critique!

Now on TGWTG! Go forth, rate and comment!

Thank you, Diamanda Hagan

I have been marathoning through Diamanda Hagan’s old videos and came across her crossover with JewWario, Zombeak.
It is the first video of his I’ve watched since his death. The dialogue and their chemistry was so good and funny I was actually able to laugh. Up until then I had been ignoring his work because it was too hard.
Thank you, Mistress, for being part of my process of being able to enjoy JewWario again, which is a much better way to honour him than what I was doing before.

Justin was my favourite collaborator and one of my fave people, I’m honoured our vids have helped in a small way.

Backseat Critique: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

It’s another helping of carboob closeups as Hagan, Robyn and Sarah report back from their daytime viewing of the second part in the unfolding tale of the allegedly Amazing Spider-Man! What did they think about this Sony feature? Did this ambitious monster mash of marvel miscreants work, or was it the Hypno Hustler of this summer’s superhero lineup?
Find out more about this, the GB movie ratings system, overlapping movie premises, visions of Dennis Leary, the Blue Danube in dubstep, Stuatu The Watcher, CG failures, turbo-charged diseases, the most understaffed industrial complex ever, awkward mood swings and much more!

I don’t quite SHIP Snob/Hagan, but if Diamanda Hagan decided to conceive her successor instead of cloning herself, I imagine she’d use Snob for those purposes cause he’s the closest she’d get to a male her.

All I can think of now is Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. —C

LESBIAN TALK -  Episode #54: LARP & Order

This week, your fancily-dressed hosts The Omega Geek and Diamanda Hagan are joined by fellow reviewer, seasoned top hat podium, and LARP veteran Derek The Bard. And that is very fortunate, as this episode is indeed all about the art and joy of dressing up in costumes, assuming a character of one’s own design and performing within confines set by incredibly expensive rulebooks.
Learn about the different philosophies of play, why not to play an asshole in the middle of depression, locations ranging from the classic parents’ basement over ballrooms over campuses over car parks to post-apocalyptic bits of the UK, and the time that Derek tore out Omega’s intestines to have a good look at them.

Another thing that they discuss together is the LARPiest of reviewer-created microbudget movies: Nerd Quest.
What worked about the movie? What didn’t ? How does it relate to actual LARPs and how do actual players feel about it? What narrative tricks were employed and  what kind of super-exclusive information can be gained from the commentary track?  And where is Hagan in the movie, anyway?

For this week’s music break,  Marcus “Quicksilver” Reeves returns with an enthralling tune called “Behind the Mask”, which is amongst those works which can be bought at this link.
And and at this point it is worth pointing out that friend of the show Tony Goldmark has recently released his latest Album, Goldmark After Dark, which is definitely worth a purchase, as well.

Then, draculobster Giovanni Jones reveals a forgotten fact about the world’s most famous trashcan inhabitant which bears unfortunate implications in hellish and terrifying parts of the modern world.

And finally, in One Time At The Store shares two how-not-to tales about parenting and vomit.

All this,Harry Russo haunting your nightmares, and more on this week’s Lesbian Talk!

Lesbian Talk can be found on The Omega’s SiteRTgomer Productions, and Hagan’s Wordpress. The MP3 version will shortly be available on Thatguywiththeglasses.com 

Now available on TGWTG! Fetch the MP3, rate, comment, stay for cookies and tea! 
Okay, maybe not the last bit.

Its my birthday! Rather than the usual retweet, I was wondering if you could explain to the class what you think sucks about "End of Time." "I don't wanna go" aside. That's obvious. Thanks in advance!

atopfourthwall:

Let me get the petty stuff out of the way first: I don’t like John Simm as the Master. While Anthony Ainley is my favorite Master and is often criticized for being hammy and over the top, he NEVER approached the levels of ham that Simm did. He could be genuinely menacing when he wasn’t prancing around like an idiot and the ONLY times I ever liked his over-the-top-ness was after he first regenerated and when he gave the thumbs up to the guy who called him insane… but he could have had those moments and otherwise be calm and collected and I would have liked him, but in End of Time it was just getting ridiculous and I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about seeing him again.

The “Master Race” thing was just stupid. JUST. STUPID. It was silly and stupid and I hated it.

We brought back Donna for… nothing. Absolutely nothing. She’s basically a cameo and filler and not even an ATTEMPT was made to fix her memories. And the presence of the alien medical machine could have fixed things, restored her memory but cut out the Timelord bits. And before you say, “But then she’d want to go with the Doctor,” No. She was getting married and she would have stayed with what’s-his-name and she’d have a happy ending, but nope! Her memory was still tampered with. Bravo.

Wilfred was fine. He was great in it, but the constant appearances of the Doctor’s “mother” or whoever the hell she was was absolutely infuriating because we never find out who the hell she is, how she did the things she did, or how she knew about what was going to happen. And on top of which, if she WAS supposed to be the Doctor’s mother, it annoys me to no end because we’re not SUPPOSED to see the Doctor’s family. Seeing his mother or father doesn’t add to the character, it removes the mystery and just raises a crap-ton of questions.

Speaking of questions, that’s really the main crux of all of this: lots and lots of unanswered questions. The Master has a cult of female worshippers who can resurrect him through the ring and he apparently set it all up and are holding his wife for an indefinite amount of time? The Master has lightning powers and super-jumps? The unknown woman contacting Wilfred? Timelines coalescing around Wilfred because… why? Because of the Doctor’s death? Ummm, there is no reason why THIS incident is special for timelines to converge around him. Rassilon? Is it somebody named after Rassilon or the original genuine article? How the hell did you even bring back the genuine article when he was technically already immortal in the Death Zone? What the hell is the deal with the super-special-magical gauntlet?

Diamanda Hagan spent two hours in videos outlining these and a number of other problems (not all of which I agree with, but it gains some perspective on just how many problems there are) with the End of Time. I’d suggest looking them up.

EDIT: Also, happy birthday!  ^_^
