Free Speech absolutists are cowardly

This hyperbolic title I am sure, is very annoying to those of you on the left, who are also staunchly for free speech in all cases. I am writing this to inform you of why this is actually nothing more than fence sitting centrism in today’s polarizing political climate. Now, if you would like to be centrist and you do not agree with the idea that certain ideas are not acceptable to be entertained in today’s age, I reluctantly will say, okay. However, I do believe many folks on the left want a better world and agree with those of … Continue reading Free Speech absolutists are cowardly

Free Speech doesn’t exist

Does this title annoy you? Do you have a visceral gag reflex at the very notion that freedom of speech isn’t real? Do you politely disagree with me and decide that I am just a shitposter? Regardless of your reasoning on this subject I feel that this entry is for you and especially for folks living in the United States. I am writing this especially for the free speech absolutionists. Those folks who believe quite literally that even the worst people deserve to have their freedom to speak hateful bile that adds nothing to actual discourse. Yes it is for … Continue reading Free Speech doesn’t exist

What it means to be a man

These days we hear a lot about how young men are struggling and there is a lot of truth to it. As a young man myself, I can understand and empathize with many young men who are struggling. However, I have never been anti-feminist or a MRA. In fact, even when I was listening to the MRA/ Skeptic community on Youtube, I would avoid their anti-feminist playlists. It just seemed so weak and petty. I had no idea who Anita Sarkeesian or gamergate was until I heard about it through the Skeptic community. And honestly, I wasn’t bothered that much … Continue reading What it means to be a man

Hope and Hell

This is a rant that I gave a generic title to so that I might have the freedom to go on whatever tangents I feel I need to in this post. I feel that my writing flows better when I don’t try to organize too much and this is something I still am working on in regards to my dream of becoming a better writer. I believe my greatest weakness, writing wise, is that I rush and cannot channel my thoughts and ideas effectively. Here is a good example of this. When I was in middle school I went to … Continue reading Hope and Hell

Shade Reviews: Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse

Spiderman:into the spiderverse was the best Marvel film released this year. I know that’s a very big claim considering the other titan that is Avengers: Infinity war. However, I teared up, laughed and was charmed by this living comic book of a movie. And that is the best way to describe the vibrant, frenetic, living, breathing, animation of this film. Sony Pictures, who still cling desperately onto the copyright of arguably one of the most valuable superhero franchises out there, had had more misses than hits and more often that not, the best is normally just okay. However, this movie … Continue reading Shade Reviews: Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse

Shade Rants: Jordan B Peterson: World’s worst psychologist

I really despise people who use the field of psychology for ulterior motives. Jordan B. Peterson is a great example of someone who does this. Now many people who are experts in fields, attempt to comment on politics in relation to a different field. This rarely changes the fact that their actual expertise in the field they have in career in is genuine. However, with Jordan B. Peterson, I feel especially strongly that he is a charlatan. I truly believe he has experience in the field and is able to help his clients. However, he is cynical and is a … Continue reading Shade Rants: Jordan B Peterson: World’s worst psychologist

Shade Rants: I hate capitalism

I can never understand how anyone can find the ideas behind capitalism to be appealing. Put aside, whether the system works or not. I would argue that it does work, but it works in a way that is inherently destructive, cruel and for lack of a better word, evil. Yes I will be using hyperbole, exaggeration and inflammatory language in this post.  Because this is a rant I will leave it up to the reader to figure out how much of this is true or not. Even when I didn’t know anything about politics or socioeconomic systems I didn’t really … Continue reading Shade Rants: I hate capitalism

Mental Health and Politics

It seems that every day and every week there is some new disaster, some new reason to despair at the world and the state of it. Being informed these days is like plugging yourself into an electric chair and attempting to endure the pain of the consistent electric shocks. I have my own issues and my own life to fix and often I am my own worse enemy, but I wanted to talk more about my own feelings and my own thoughts about the world today. Often, when a male decides to talk about his emotions, it is seen as … Continue reading Mental Health and Politics

Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

ZOIKS SCOOOB ITS A GHO GHO GHOOOOOOOOST I love ghosts don’t you like ghosts? Before I start sounding like Jack Fenton and making bad ghost puns, let me just say, these movies are just three I really enjoyed. If you don’t like them, that’s cool. I like movies everyone hates all the time, and that doesn’t take away from how I feel about them. The great thing about all forms of art, is that your own likes and dislikes, are subjective. Now here we go : Insidious(2010) Holy boooooooooooo merang, Batman, this was an enjoyable film. There is something really … Continue reading Ghostly Trio: Good Ghost Movies

Favorite Horror films: 1408

Horror films rock my socks. I used to be terrified but now I am in love with the genre. I believe horror is so primal and deep that it is the primary way of creating compelling characters and to have deep emotional storylines. This is not solely a horror movie thing, but horror often is not held up as the highest art. I have decided to name a few of my favorite horror films here and hope you enjoy. 1408 (2009) An adaptation of a Stephen King short story, this movie follows Michael Enslin(John Cusack) who is a skeptical author … Continue reading Favorite Horror films: 1408

Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

I am a fan of Eli Roth, and I was looking forward to seeing Knock Knock. I admit as a young man, the attractive females were a part of the reason I wanted to see the film. But that doesn’t mean that I cannot recognize a good film. Eli Roth however, is a hit or miss kind of guy, in my opinion. I really enjoyed Cabin Fever and thought it was easily his best film I’ve seen that he has directed. I even sort of enjoyed Aftershock, as it was tense and a fast moving ride. I don’t hate dark … Continue reading Knock Knock: Disappointing Pizza

Author’s Note

Sabado has its second official release FAM. I am so excited to finally have another real post on here. Unfortunately, it is not the final draft. It is the second draft for a reason. It still feels like there is more work that can be done but I wanted to give you, the reader something to read. If you haven’t read the original story yet, now is a good time to read it. It is definitely better than the previous version of it. There are less errors and the grammar and format is way better. I do hope you enjoy … Continue reading Author’s Note
