What is Your Favorite Dracula?

Hey guys, what is your favorite Dracula and why? You can choose any depiction or version of Dracula. You could even choose Nosferatu or get very technical on the type of movie Dracula.

So, which Dracula is your favorite?

Is it the Bela Lugosi version or Christopher Lee version?

Is it none of the film versions, but perhaps Dracula as depicted in Castlevania? What about Alucard in Hellsing?

Let me know in the comments section and ask others.

Now, let me shoutout to Damascus Mincemeyer. This guy is the talent behind a lot of the Deadman’s Tome covers, but he also proposed this question on Twitter.

The Case of the Missing Penis?

Some of you may or may not know that I post a lot of videos on YouTube on the MrDeadmanDt channel. The channel covers news, drama, with some horror and writing trickled in. The’s not really important, though. What is important is that I recent covered a news story where a deceased man’s penis has apparently went missing?

How does that happen? How does a deceased man lose his penis?

I have no clue, but I think it would be interesting for a quick piece of flash fiction. Consider this a writing prompt challenge. Write what you think happened down below in the comments section, and it’ll be shared on a the Deadman’s Tome podcast.

Favorite Zombie Movie and Why?

Some say zombie movies are overrated and overplayed. As much as I enjoy watching brain-eaters wasted away by a barrage of gun fire, I have to admit that perhaps they’re right. But that doesn’t meant that there aren’t a few titles that standout and become our go to favorites, right?

So, I ask you, what are your favorite zombie movies and why?

Straight Pride Parade is Okay

I do not have a problem with straight people celebrating their orientation, because I do not have a problem with gay people celebrating theirs. We should, in a country with freedom of speech, be allowed to openly celebrate our orientations.

Some people do have a problem with it, and when they express their opinions it often comes across as reverse bigotry, or just bigotry.

When someone claims that straight people shouldn’t have pride parades because they’re straight they are using the same line of thinking that homophobic bigots used against gays. Claiming that someone shouldn’t get to exercise their right because of their orientation is wrong and illegal. I understand that gay people were and still are the subject of harassment, assaults, and death threats from straight people, but to claim that all straight people are the aggressors is an argument from prejudice and ignorance.

Remember #notall does apply, right?

When people say that everyday for a straight person is a parade and thus they shouldn’t get a parade, they argue form ignorance the same way homophobes would and is just another variation of discrimination. When someone restricts the rights of someone else on the basis that the group already has enough rights, or already has this or that, then you’re just using ignorance and prejudice to excuse discrimination.

I’m for gay people celebrating their gayness. They should be proud of being gay, just like lesbians should be proud of being lesbian, and trans people being proud. I’m also for straight people celebrating their straightness, too.

Instagram Thots Flocking to Chernobyl

HBO’s Chernobyl appears to be the inspiration for Instagram Thots to go out and do what they do best at the site.

The Chernobyl site in Ukraine has been an open tourist destination since 2011, with tours taking visitors around the power plant and the nearby abandoned town of Pripyat. As often happens when a specific location becomes the subject of a media event, tourism has spiked sharply since HBO aired Chernobyl.

And of course, many of those tourists are posting about their trips on social media. The unfathomable horror of a manmade disaster that cost the lives and damaged the health of untold thousands is not immune to the spectacle of Instagram.

What do you think about this?

Nintendo Dominated E3

How hard is it to just how games at a video game conference? Apparently, EA and Microsoft missed the plot entirely and as a result gave Nintendo the perfect opportunity to just dominate, which they did.

Nintendo’s Direct showed a stream of constant game play with the occasional blurb of awkward Japanese to English moments, but those moments were made up for exciting announcements such as:

A sequel to Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild in development, Banjo-Kazooie as a character in Smash Ultimate, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing New-Horizons, and more.

The New York Time Smears Philip DeFranco

 

The New York Times insinuated that YouTube content creators like Philip DeFranco, Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman, and Jewish political commentator Ben Shapiro as “far right” when the published Kevin Roose’s “The Making of a YouTube Radical”.

The NYT felt so confident with this story they published it on their front page for everyone to see. The article takes the story of ONE YouTube user that just so happened to watch people of a certain political persuasion as if there is a link between YouTube and ‘far right’ radicalization. Every time I hear this, I can’t help but to think back to the 90’s when people were trying to link Pokemon to Satanism or violence in games to violence in real life. While I could go far out into the woods to argue how flimsy those premises are, I actually don’t have to. Because Kevin Roose went out on the deep end  by claiming Philip DeFranco, a vanilla, middle of the road commentator, as “far right”, all I have to ask is does that make a lick of sense to you.

Does it?

No, of course not!

The NYT saw what happened between Vox and YouTube, and wanted to jump into the beat down. Vox pressured YouTube to change their policies when one of their “journalists” Carlos Maza cried foul after being made fun of on the internet. When you present yourself as someone that knows a lot and then makes a lot of dumb arguments, then people will call you out, and even make fun of you.

Long story short, YouTube first told Vox that they wouldn’t do anything to amend the journalist’s hurt feelings, but then changed their mind when Carlos Maza began signaling that YouTube hate LGBTQ to other blue check marks on Twitter. YouTube caved to the pressure and bend the knee.

The NYT saw this moment of weakness and published Kevin Roose’s story on the front page. I speculate that the NYT already had the story ready to go and was waiting for the right moment, but I do not have definite proof of that.

While I’m amazed at how far mainstream news outlets like the NYT are willing to push the narrative that YouTube is some how evil, I’m glad that they did. I believe that one can only push a lie so far until it has to crash against reality. I’m hoping that this lie, lumping Philip DeFranco in a news article that labeled him as ‘far right’, will be that moment.

I’m not aware of any legal filings as of yet, but from what I’ve read it looks like the NYT could face libel claims after publishing the front page story. Outlets like the NYT know they can generate a bunch of clicks if they enrage people, which means more money through ad revenue, but can they also handle a bunch of lawsuits on their plate?

What do you think about this?
