From A Series of Unfortunate Events DVD commentary track.

if you haven’t watched this film with the commentary then you are missing out, it’s hilarious. “Lemony Snicket” was completely unhappy with the film and wanted no real part of it and so in the commentary he just fucks about. Seriously, at one point he gets out an accordion and drowns out the director with his playing

"nearly all of my life"

Lemony Snicket sass is what I aspire to in life.

"Lemony Snicket" (Dan Handler) was asked if he liked the movie.
He said “I love the movie as much as someone who wrote 8 drafts of a movie before being fired from his own creation could possibly be.”
The man’s life is sarcasm and it’s beautiful.

A male friend of mine that develops AAA games told me, “When a woman criticizes me, it goes to a different part of my brain than when a man on my team does. I get defensive really quickly. I’m trying to get better about it.” I don’t think his is a unique experience.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

Yeah, it goes to the “DISMISS ANYTHING WOMEN SAY” part of his brain, while he thinks about doing violence towards her. Men=shit.

And it goes double time if you are a Woman of Color speaking out in the white and male dominated industry. You get racist invective, gaslighted, and rape threats.

I should know, thats what happened to me when I dared to speak against the racism in Bioshock Infinite. These articles need to be more intersectional.

The Australian counter terrorism raids launched this morning and are already brutally affecting innocent Australian Muslims.
Maywand Osman, who was detained during the raids at Waterloo Rd in Marsfield but not arrested, said: “I opened the door this morning at 4:45am to about four police officers.
"They asked me to raise my hands. I immediately raised my hands. Four officers then jumped at me and one punched me in the face.
"They threw me to the ground and started hitting me in the head and pulling my hair.
"One officer grabbed me by the hair and said, "You piece of shit’.
While they were beating me I heard one officer say, ‘Just don’t make him bleed’.
"They then went inside my house to conduct a search. They found nothing in my house and I was not under arrest or in custody at any point in time."
