This guy is hilarious, and really an inspiration to me. A more polished and ingenious inspiration obviously, since I only write about shit and he actually makes an effort.
As for Star Trek: the Movie, I enjoyed it for pretty much the same reasons why Plinkett did. The story didn’t suck, the cinematography was at moments superb and the whole cast just clicked together in the end. I can’t really compare it to older Star Trek movies or the original TV series (I’m not a Trekkie in any sense of the word except that I know most of the crew members names in the original series and TNG), but as a space action movie blockbuster, it’s a rarely seen pleasure in recent years.
I don’t have anything specific to say about this particular joke (except it’s funny as hell), but the whole concept of Old Jews Telling Jokes is so simple yet works great! Every city in the world should have something like this so we can all learn new jokes every day, and new art of joke-telling secrets with every new storyteller.
Simon’s Cat doesn’t really need any additional promotion, but still, there might be some people who haven’t heard of it before. There really is no artistic value in these animations, except for their pure entertainment value. And boy, am I entertained every single time they come out. Which is not as often as it should be, but it shows off great skill every single time.
This guy does everything I ever wanted to write about in this blog. Photography, animation, video, music… only thing missing is a comic book type of thing, but even I know it’d be an overkill.
I really feel incompetent but full of great pride that there is somebody out there who’s capable of such artistic expression. I’m guessing this must be what a man-crush feels like…
Anyways, go check out MysteryGuitarMan’sYou Tube channel and other presences he makes known on the interwebs. Be sure to subscribe though, because I think he’s crazy hyperactive, who knows how long that will go on.
yelllbelll asked:My dad told me the other day that there weren't people of color in certain places in the 1400's. I quickly pulled up your blog and showed him. He looked so proud. How often can one say they taught their father about history. Definitely a first for me
Anonymous asked:Can you explain why Europeans were much more technologically advanced than the indigenous populations of Africa? I mean, these cultures hadn't even invented sewage systems, which is something the Romans were able to design and implement in 800-735 BC (a long fucking time before "the white man" colonized it)... I mean fuck, without "the white man", they would probably still be in the fucking bronze age.
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry?...
