***ICYMI: The Dark Tower, Book 7: The Dark Tower- Part 4, Chapters 3 & 4***Hi everyone! I want to share my apologies that there isn't going to be a new episode of The Dresden Files or Harry Potter this week, because Comcast sucks and RoShawn's internet keeps going out for reasons that the company cannot seem to determine. This has been happening for a couple weeks, so I really hope it gets sorted out by next week! Fingers crossed. Okay, onto The Dark Tower. This is one of the rarer episodes where Miles and I disagree a little more on the chapters than we usually do. While Miles is much less interested in the "Hides" chapter and feels like it's a stupid place to put a DIY tanning instructional manual, I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff and totally thought it was fascinating. Now, don't get me wrong; I think Miles is right. It's not a smart place to put this chapter, and the fact that the whole thing is included really makes me ask yet again, WHERE WERE KING'S EDITORS? But I really liked it anyway because I just wanna know about DIY tanning, okay? Then there's the PREVIOUS chapter, which is a really odd one. Some dudes are under a glamour and try to tempt Susannah and Roland, but in like the most obvious way ever so that the stakes don't feel like much. THEN, for some reason, Roland gives up on his idea to trap Mordred and Mordred comes and eats the guy. *shrug* I don't understand, Roland. Anyway! Thanks for listening. See you next week! ow.ly/Yycs30kwz9O... See MoreSee Less
A while back I posted a screenshot of someone who was angry at the post-election message I posted on our Harry Potter feed. I recorded that message the day after the election, when many of us were feeling shocked and horrified at the direction our country had taken. This reviewer (and one after) felt singled out and protested that we should stick to talking about Harry Potter and avoid politics.When I recorded that message, I meant every word I said. But I had no idea how bad it was actually going to get. We are only two years into this presidency, and America is ALREADY reaching a point I never thought we would. We have already seen a mandatory piece of propaganda that news anchors were required to read on air several months ago, but there will be a new one coming out soon intended to downplay the human rights violations at the border. Our president went to meet with a murderous, unhinged dictator and had nothing but positive things to say. We are indefinitely detaining desperate families in camps, and separated children from parents without so much as getting information on their parents names so that they could be reunited. Let me repeat that. Although the policy to separate children is being struck down, the ALREADY separated children and their parents may never see each other again. Because we didn’t care enough to WRITE DOWN WHO THEY WERE.If you can watch the news every day and tell yourself this is justified, if you can read Harry Potter and see the evil there but not in our own country, I genuinely do not know what to say to you.I got some flak when I posted that screenshot months ago, and it never ceases to amaze me how willing people are to get offended over the *wrong thing*. If you’re fine with keeping children in cages, but me posting a screenshot of a public review is over the line...unlike this page. Stop listening to my show. Leave. I don’t want fans like that.Part of the UNspoiled! brand (I hope) is being honest about how we feel and calling things out when they’re fucked up. Well, guess what? THINGS ARE FUCKED UP. And frankly the only thing I’m sorry about is that I didn’t use more vigorous language from the start. I am planning another live call to Congress soon if any of you would care to join me and see how it’s done, so please keep your eye on this space for more information. ... See MoreSee Less
As horrible as the Nazi regime was, they had one thing up on the American one: they categorized damn near EVERYTHING. Almost every single prisoner was categorized and registered. It's how they were able to reunite as many families as they did (if German families didn't swipe the kids and change their identities) or at least be able to notify families about the fates of those who went to the camps.
Let that sink in. The Nazi regime (you know, one of the most evil entities we know in recent history) was more organized/thorough than the American regime. It's disgusting.
I remember that podcast. I cried with you. You helped make me feel not so alone in a very red state in a very red county. It is time for me to become a patron. I will find a way to be a 20$ patron although you and Roshawn deserve so much more. I know it may seem silly but you and Roshawn and the HP podcast have been my beacon of light in these disastrous times. You gals make me laugh, cry and get up ready to fight the good fight another day. I look forward to joining forces and defeating this evil regime.
I remember that message, after the election. I was driving and had to pull over to the side of the road. It was what convinced me to listen to your show actually.
I've said it before but I can't say it enough: thank you for using your platform for good and addressing what matters. We're with you.
Thank you so much for always speaking out and being on top of current topics and events. <3
Don't let the bastards grind you down - thank you for doing all that you do, and thank you for getting everyone involved. This administration is a nightmare.
I not only fear for what's happening and what's yet to happen during his presidency, I fear more about how long the damage will last once Trump The Chump is finally out... The seeds of hatred he's planting will take for ever to die out
I recently got a comment on a movie trailer I uploaded years ago about the French Resistance saying how it was propaganda rubbish and that Hitler was right. Yesterday, I posted a movie clip below in which Jewish kids that were being hidden at a Catholic boarding school were being arrested by the Gestapo and taking to camps. I talked about how recent events reminded me of this heartbreaking scene, and one guy was trying to argue how I got my history wrong. youtu.be/cK8qck07SJs
***ICYMI- Orphan Black, S05E01- The Few Who Dare***Hello good people, and welcome to the first episode of the final season of Orphan Black. I really can't believe that we're almost done with this show, and I can honestly say I have no idea what's coming. We're in totally unfamiliar territory here with Mr. PT Barnum, and I can't imagine it's going anywhere good. So much happens this episode, it's hard to keep track. Sarah manages to get to the Revival village to save Cosima, only to find out Cosima doesn't want to be saved. Rachel decides she's going to work for the head of this circus and administers the cure to Cosima (OR DOES SHE????). Art gets a new partner who blackmails him into helping them find Helena, and holds him at gunpoint to blackmail Alison. Donny almost gets jumped, but gets saved by Helena (for the zillionth time) only to see that she's horribly injured and has a stick in her baby. And throughout all of this, the dudes back home are looking to anyone they can for help, and decide that maybe M.K. is their best option. There's just a ton happening and I'm worried about Helena's babies, I'm worried about Alison being locked up somewhere, I'm worried about Art and his daughter, I'm worried that Rachel tricked Cosima and that it wasn't the cure in that needle...I'm worried about SO MUCH. What is going to happen!?Thanks for listening, and see you next week! ow.ly/MBCH30kww8S... See MoreSee Less
