Allow me to quote myself. On December 31st, in the year of Our Lord 2009, I wrote the following when discussing society’s New Year’s Resolutions:

Food Industry: End the use of ketchup packets. It’s stupid, it’s pointless, and it bothers the shit out of me. Every other condiment at most fast food places comes in a tub: Barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, honey mustard, yet when I get fries, I have to surgically open 62 ketchup packets to get an adequate amount to start dipping. GET SOME KETCHUP IN SOME TUBS. We’re not putting a man on Mars here, it’s a reasonable request. Get moving. I need my fries slathered in ketchup!

Well guess what, bitches?

POW! Look who is changing society one post at a time! Read the rest of this entry »

What did Rhyme&Reason think about Avatar? Great visuals. Stunning. Changed the way we looked at action movies the way The Matrix, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Carribbean and Transformers did. Maybe even more so.

And what about the plot? This pretty much sums up our thoughts on the plot.

Also, the other one, miniscule hang up we couldn’t get over: It took three months for the main character Jake Sully, to go from being (presumably) interested in humans to some sort of giant blue catfrog-like creature.

Three months? That’s it? Three months? Sorry, it takes far longer than a season for Rhyme&Reason to switch our sex de jour from people to aliens. I don’t care if James Cameron did make the aliens look people-like and had the audience wonder if the female alien was topless throughout the entire film.

Aliens ≠ People. Sorry, James.

There’s a lot of stuff on the internet. Sometimes, you don’t get a chance to read stuff you should really be reading. From time to time, I like to point you to a certain place on the interwebs, to a certain article or post that you should very much read. This is one of those times.
