Nov 11th 2010 6:26PM I'm not sure what to think of you if I have to spell it out for you since it's most painfully obvious but I'll give a breakdown for those that lack the critical skills necessary to understand satire - even this little simple nugget from Oxhorn should be easy to notice as satire from anyone who has read The Onion at least.
I want you to keep in mind what evil is in contrast to what good is. It's not that hard.
Here's a direct quote from the film of what evil is,
"Are these truly evil acts? Didn't they make the world a better place?"
He tries to convince the crowd that he's evil because he recycles everyday, eats vegan meals, and rides a hybrid kodo (a shoutout to hybrid cars). He embraces political correctness and snubs out opposing views (mainstream media talk - hellooooo) When his students talk about fiscal responsibility, he punishes them (meaning that he is against it). That's just the first 1 minute and 45 seconds - there's more as one pushes through.
The evil is a stereotype of what the left is from the right's perspective - a very warped perspective but that's not the point. The point is is that it's preachy and due to that it's not as good as his older ones that had nothing to do with politics or trying to prove there is a God by playing with the idea of a pink invisible unicorn or whatever it is.
I don't want to be preached to - especially something WOW related which I use to get away from the real world. I don't want to be preached to by an obtuse person that looks, talks and acts like Allen Ginsberg, using wow as his platform.
His earlier movies were better - don't believe me, check them out. His politics were a little bit more hidden and less obnoxiously "in your face" than they are now.
Nov 11th 2010 1:37PM Bleh - his videos were much better when he didn't have a big head and put political crap into them. His moral righteousness is obtuse and simple.
Here's an Oxhorn movie boiled down to it's most complicated form: "I LOVE RIGHT WING POLITICS AND HERE I AM POKING FUN AT STEREOTYPES OF THE LEFT WITH MACHINIMA."
By the way, any thanks from this post goes to Jesus, not me.

Dec 8th 2009 1:46PM Thanks - I was wondering where the new instances were at!
Dec 4th 2009 12:13PM Metric is only the greatest band to never fully break out into the mainstream. Their latest album which came out in April I believe, which 'Gimme Sympathy' is off of is pretty good; but their other two full length albums, 'One World Underground' and 'Live it Out' are probably two of the most perfect albums put out in the last decade...period...
Nov 20th 2009 4:05PM It's funny how the right wing community can take something as tame as a name within a game and turn it into something ridiculously political. I'm gay and I was in the Stonewall Family (grats btw) and I don't feel my 'lifestyle' is barren.
I love how this right wing mass calls being gay a 'lifestyle' like as if being gay is like being a gamer or a runner - as if there a certain properties that I have other than liking the same sex that I must mold myself after.
Well, let me tell you about my lifestyle. I'm 6'2, big in a muscular type of way; I run at least 5 miles a day - I do intimidate people by the way I look and by the way I carry myself and I do use this to my advantage. I'm from NYC so my accent also helps me intimidate people. I was in the Army for four years. I'm very liberal, but unlike most American liberals I believe in arming the left; meaning I love guns. I think if we look at any social movement in America, there has always been a dichotomy of the peaceful and the violent - I tend to think plain ol' Americans understand violence best, so I run with that fold. What I'm trying to say is that if I was Matthew Shepard, there would be two dead rednecks and one less dead gay person. I have a MS in Education, 2 BA's in English and Philosophy. I take comfort in my friends and family and feel more than satisfied with my life. I've seen different places and experienced things that you could only wish that you've experienced, even just a fragment of it.
What I'm trying to get at is that being gay is really not a lifestyle - I, nor any other gay person, can be summed up by being lumped into a gay lifestyle. We are all different. How ridiculous would I sound if I called straight people living in a straight lifestyle?
And I love how you make it all about you when two gay people adopt a child; as if they are adopting a child just to send you a message - narcissistic? Probably so. That's the problem with you crazy right wingers - everything is about you and the message getting sent to you and your right to deny other rights and your morality and you and you and you and you.
Moral compass? I can point to every moral rule I follow, every proposition that backs it up and put it into a logical framework that is not dependent on some outside source. What about you? How is your moral compass built?
Oct 8th 2009 3:40PM Goblins are getting a city next to Orgrimar; Worgen are only getting a place in Stormwind. Getting back Gnomergan seems more equivalent of Goblins getting a city than anything else. What I mean is that the goblin city and gnomergan would both be close to another capital, both are small races, etc.
Jul 21st 2009 2:33PM Wow, you must see these at least every hour that you are playing? Because that's is at least how many times I see someone saying that something is gay in /2; and I've never seen anyone bash Christianity or make comments about raping another player - never! I've seen people make derogatory comments about female players which were meant to be in jest and were actually bordering on the flirty side, but I've never seen comments like the ones that you are tying to conjure. And I play a lot of Wow, on both factions, on many different servers.
