EVAN: Dearest audience, I don’t know what happened. There used to be a time when you offered us E> topics like it was nothing, and now it feels like something has come between us. Is it Gordon’s divisive posts about Christianity? Just let us know, we can’t take the silence any longer!
That being said, we’re basically just going to talk for 45 minutes about whatever we feel like.
So, Gordon, the two of us have been known to play D&D from time to time, and I’m going to pose it to you to come up with an original class idea. Keep in mind that I already have one and it is pretty good.
He’s a drow, or dark elf, so it’s not technically blackface. . . I think . . .
And I’m expecting something a little bit different from your usual high-damage through bladed weapons or dark magic with low health.
GORDON: Ah, we’re going right for the nerd crowd, eh? Okay, how about this: Continue reading

As with many elements of modern culture, I walk the blurry line between fandom and general enjoyment. I like plenty of stuff, but I wouldn’t say I love anything. I enjoy comics- more than the average man on the street- but I’m definitely not on a level where I could seriously discuss comics with someone who’s actually into them (as Evan can attest). I enjoy heavy metal, but I couldn’t name the leading band of the past couple years or tell you the difference between Finnish black metal and Swedish death metal.
This is neither, just for the record…
Even though this gets me simultaneously branded as a nerd by people who aren’t fans of _______ and a poser by people who are, I nevertheless get a pretty unique perspective on things. I can see how they work- what their appeal is- without getting objectivity compromised by being too emotionally invested.
Now I think I’d be hard pressed to think of a better example of this than Doctor Who.

If any of you saw X2 [known internationally as the more sensible X-Men 2] I’m sure you remember the following scene starring the very talented Alan Cumming as the mutant Nightcrawler:
The YouTube uploader’s choice of music aside, I think we can all agree that a) that was awesome, and that b) we all like watching people teleport. If we look back a little more recently to the 2006 fever dream that was X-Men: The Last Stand we see that the bamf-ing blue mutant was not actually present among the plethora of mutants presented.
