YouTube Censorship Gone Wild
This video was struck from celebrity YouTuber Markiplier’s channel.
And it had been posted for three years before getting a strike. This guy is up there with PewdiePie and they are treating him like shit. YouTube has gotten too big to fulfill its primary function. Let’s hop AG Barr is serious with his legal action against Alphabet.
Anyway judge for yourself. Yes, there is excessive and hilarious violence.
The Owl House: Update
A while back I had given a grudging Cataline Recommends to the Disney Channel series, the Owl House. The reason was simple enough, it was a good for a couple of laughs per episode show. Not as good a Gravity Falls but it was in that vein. Although as a Christian, I found it disconcerting that the program insisted on referring to the creatures of that world as “demons.” If the creator had called them “monsters,” I wouldn’t have batted an eye.
My Recommends With Reservations, rating is now dropped to Does Not Recommend.
Reason: Luz (the protagonist) was originally shown to be an off beat and over the top fan of a series of Harry Potter-ish books called the Good Witch Azura. And her brief crush on Neverith the prince of Angst-more (yes, I laughed at the name), indicated she was straight. That isn’t good enough for today’s Woke-As-Fuck-No-Matter-What-Doomcock-Seems-To-Think Disney.
There was a female character named Amity, who was the standard high school pretty and popular-insecure-mean-girl trope. Then over the course of three episodes went from enemy to friend and then (gag) love interest for the suddenly bisexual (and 14 year old) Luz.
This show went from reasonably decent to awful almost over night because Woke. And it’s all because of Amity’s sudden girlish stuttering and blushing around Luz. The cringe is absoultely and utterly unwatchable. I literly can’t look at it because I roll my eyes every time it happens.
Free advice to all producers. Shippers are a disaster. If you listen to this tiny but loud and Woke segment you will kill your audience. If the guys who run Supernatural had listened to the shippers, a show with a fifteen year run would have ended after two because Dean had started fucking his own brother.
Cataline Does Not Recommend.
Look Out Brie!
I’ve shifted my opinion on the fate of Marvel. Long term it still looks bad but so long as Kevin Feige can protect it, it will keep publishing comics.
And the new face of Marvel is unquestionably Kamala Khan. Why? You ask in some confusion. Because her creator Sana Amanat is the one in charge at Marvel and Kamala is a perfect reflection of the audience she wants Marvel to have. I could tell that Amnet had taken over at Marvel Comics when she publicly stated she intends for “Marvel to become a life-style brand.”
That is the most Disney corporate culture statement imaginable. That is right out Mickey The Great And Terrible’s executives bible.
Given Brie’s “problematic fan response” and the fact that straight and white won’t cut it in 2020 Hollywood, I strongly suspect that Ms. Marvel will shortly be promoted to Captain.
That’s not just guess work. Disney is artificially boosting the hell out of Ms. Marvel’s numbers in the publishing world. There is nothing they can do about her comic book numbers since that works on bulk orders from the shops. Also, she’s one of the most repeatedaly canceled titles of all time. But it is is simple to push graphic novels on Scholastic books. Just put it on banner on the cover of the Scholastic flyer and parents will put you over the million sales mark everytime. And gaming the New York Times bestseller list is EASY if the NYT doesn’t want to look at what is getting artificially boosted (and they sure as hell don’t want to look in on publisher buy-backs for the Muslim superheroine with Popeye’s arms).
There is one problem with all this. Nobody likes the character except Sana Amanat.
Bottomline: Marvel will continue down the Woke rabbit hole, shedding fans and money like Joe Biden shedding healthy brain cells.
I liked it.
Okay, I’m done here.
