Firefly

firefly1,244 words

Joss Whedon’s Firefly is a science fiction series that lived and died on the Fox Network in the Fall of 2002. Fourteen episosdes were shot, but only eleven were aired before the series was canceled, to the consternation of the surprisingly large number of loyal fans that the show conjured up in the split second of its existence. In my view, Firefly is one of the best sci-fi shows ever, second only to Battlestar Galactica Read more …

Juego de Tronos, Primera Temporada

game-of-thrones-poster3,926 words

English original here

Anthony Swofford escribió en la película Jarhead (El Infierno Espera) que es imposible hacer una película contra la guerra. Incluso una película como Full Metal Jacket, que se burla del Cuerpo de Marines de los Estados Unidos y sus valores, ha sido defendida por la misma gente que son despreciadas, como con R. Lee Emery al que le dieron una promoción posterior a su jubilación por el Comandante por las referencias a la película citada y por los mismos instructores partidarios de la película que los desprecia.

Behind Trouble with Father

Stu Erwin and wife June Collyer in “Trouble with Father”

2,839 words

An online blogger and CC commenter recently pointed out that everything is a “goddamned cold fish to the face.” As often as possible, I like to discover where that comes from.

Recently I experienced the cold fish to the face phenomenon while watching an old episode of Trouble with Father (ABC, 1950–1955), a half-hour TV comedy series starring Stu Erwin and his real-life wife June Collyer. (The show is known under several different names, including The Stu Erwin Show.)  Read more …

Person of Interest

Jim Caviezel

1,293 words

Recently, while staying with a friend who had just gotten out of the hospital, I was exposed to a good deal of TV. Two shows caught my attention: Downton Abbey (more on that later) and Person of Interest, which runs on CBS on Thursday nights. At first, I thought Person of Interest might merely serve to tide me over until the next seasons of Burn Notice and Breaking Bad.

Boss

2,352 words

As of this writing, thousands are taking to the streets in Russia to protest what they claim are fraudulent elections “won” by Vladimir Putin’s United Russia. In their lust to overthrow the one powerful white government that is not completely under the rule of the bankers and politically correct bureaucrats that rule the West, reporters from the likes of the New York Times are even willing to overlook and forgive that much of the opposition is coming from the Nationalist Right.

Why I Write

Why do I write movie and television reviews from a White Nationalist perspective? It’s complicated.

In the first couple chapters of Men Among the Ruins . . . Julius Evola outlines the nature of the State as constituted by Authority from above (as opposed to from below, as in democracy or party dictatorship), as represented by an Order of men, “who differentiate themselves from the masses as the bearers of a complete and legitimate authority,” originating in the primitive Männerbünde.

Boldly going where no man has gone before: television's first interracial kiss on "Star Trek"

We know why a homely or obese white woman is sleeping with blacks or Mexicans: They are willing to overlook her faults because she is white. Read more …
