We're back witches, with another magical episode of the Coven Podcast. This week, we're looking at the issues surrounding Channel Awesome. From sexual harassment, rape scripts, mismanagement, and non-apologies for all this, it seems to be one of YouTube's many sinking ships. Is this a symptom of the greater issues with YouTube? With Hollywood? How did it get this bad? Is there any surviving this scandal? We'll examine the Channel Awesome Implosion as a what NOT to do when faced with such a wide-ranging scandal. Let's talk about the State of the YouTube: will it survive as a platform? Are we all just being nostalgic for the good old days? Are these issues just growing pains?
We're back witches, with another magical episode of the Coven Podcast. This week, we're looking at the toxic fandoms. Can a show be ruined by its fandom? The shows themselves are fairly unproblematic on their own... but then in comes the fandom... My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is perhaps forever tainted by the bronies who love it, but in recent years other fandoms have been cited as having ruined the show by making it cringe-y, ruining online searches for it with shipping and NSFW fanart, and other crimes. These fandoms include Undertale, Steven Universe, and perhaps most notably Rick and Morty with the whole sauce/intellectual nihilism thing. Can the fandom really ruin enjoyment of the show/game itself? Is this blown out of proportion?
We're back witches, with another magical episode of the Coven Podcast. This week, we're looking at the toxic masculinity. What is toxic masculinity, who is affected, who is helping, what is going on with defense on either side? All of these will be answered and more will be discussed on this episode of The Coven.
TRIGGER WARNING: POLITICS WILL BE DISCUSSED
This week on Remixed/ Coven we are talking about inspirational women because this month is International Women's Month! We are also discussing Drake's cover of Lemon, Eminem's controversial new song, Lil Dicky's new song, and Pearl Jam's out-of-the-blue release.
TRIGGER WARNING: Pedophilia
When Studio Ponoc released Mary and the Witch’s Flower, we all thought, could this be the rebirth of Studio Ghibli? Or is it just Ghibli lite? Join us this week on Animation A-Team as we take a look at what these Ghibli alums are up to, and what this film means for the future of animation.
Wakanda is not a real country. But what’s important is that it could have been, which is one of the core messages behind Black Panther that makes the film so poignant, especially at this moment in history. In the film, the fictional country features an amalgam of African cultures and traditions, with Wakanda representing what might have been in the absence of the violence of colonization.
We’re back with a new episode of Animation A-Team! This week we are taking a look into the Oscars. Why doesn’t the academy recognize animation as a whole? Why is Boss Baby being nominated? Which animated films were snubbed? All this and more by your Animation A-Team.
George R. R. Martin by no means invented action-packed stories of political tension, long anticipated reunions, necromancy, or incest. This makes Game of Thrones one of the most controversial and talked-about series in modern television, but the same exciting themes can be found in classic plays, one of which is showing here in Ball State’s own Strother Theatre.
We’re all just out here looking for love, companionship, and understanding. With the unstoppable march of technological progress, that search has become increasingly easier as the years go by. In the past, finding a suitable mate meant hoping that strangers and friends you meet in bars, in class, and out in the wild would share your interests and values. Today, you can sit on the couch and browse through thousands of faces, their likes and dislikes displayed in plain text.
Back when Harvey Weinstein was first revealed as a sexual predator who manipulated and silenced the women he assaulted with a powerful cocktail of payouts, threats to their respective reputations, and offers of further roles, there was one thing that was clear in each telling of the survivor’s stories—that he was not committing these crimes alone.
Hey 90’s kids, remember PBS? Remember Arthur? Based on a book series of the same name, the show centered around an anthropomorphic aardvark and his friends. Despite it’s after school special nature, the show managed to avoid a condescending tone and featured an entertaining and relatable cast of characters.
There are a lot of different complaints about The Last Jedi floating around. Not enough character development, no one liked the casino scene, Luke acting out of character – the list goes on. Around the dark corners of the internet, one particular gripe prompted action from a men’s rights activist with video editing software: there are simply too many women in Star Wars.
We’re back with a new episode of Animation A-Team! This week we head back in time to an era that only 90s kids remember and reminisce about classic Nick Toons. What made the cartoons of our childhood so good? How come today’s cartoons fall short? Do we want reboots simply because of nostalgia, or because there are more stories to tell? All this and more by your Animation A-Team.
Let’s be honest: last year wasn’t the best. But 2017 had a special way of astounding me every time I glanced at the news. Astounding me in the wholly worst of ways. The list of why 2017 was a horrible, terrible, no good year is a long one, but excluding natural disasters and national embarrassments, I narrowed it down to five things that contributed to 2017’s particular brand of rankness.
Unpopular opinion: 2017 wasn’t actually a complete garbage fire. Despite a constant flurry of bad news, natural disasters and national scandals, there were some bright spots in the darkness, too. For the sake of positivity, let’s look back on some of the best moments of the year.
Every year produces a relentless heaping of blockbuster films that sell fantastically, but how many of them are actually good is another question entirely. Though the major circuit may have been a little bit short on masterpieces this year, it was by no means empty. We got another great Pixar movie, a beautiful shoutout to The Room, and the best M. Night Shyamalan film in a long time. We also caught a whole host of independent films at Heartland Film Festival this year, some of which were made in our own backyard. So as it turns out, the year of The Disaster Artist wasn’t such a disaster after all.
Here’s another desperate, alarmist article explaining how net neutrality is a deadly serious thing that you need to be paying attention to. Because it really is. Later this week, the anticipated repeal of net neutrality will have immediate and far-reaching repercussions. You should expect big changes in how your everyday use of the Internet will be effected.
As always happens with the release of a new Pokemon game, there are inevitably some fake leaks that float around online as to what the fresh batch of pocket monsters might look like. Sometimes these leaks are way off base, but other times they're eerily close to the final product, as with what happened before the release of Pokemon Sun and Moon this time last year.
