"You fuckers think just because a guy reads comics he can't start some shit?"

Although I am not a comic junkie (except for the new Buffy series), I can understand the draw. There's an aesthetic about it that my inner geek loves. And I'm probably just a few clicks away from comic geek: fantasy geek. Yep, I admit it: I love the fantasy stuff. Scorn me if you will, but Conan, The Wheel of Time (before it dragged on and on), unicorns, fairies, RennFaires, the whole bit. I know. Loser.

In college I worked at the best damn video rental place on the planet. Well, in our town anyway. We had an impressive cult section, truly terrible horror films, and a porn room. To date, it's been my favorite job. My boss at the video store was a total comic geek. He went to the local comic shop every week on Thursdays to get his stash. He's the one who introduced me to Vampire Hunter D, which led me down the rather embarrassing but wonderful path of anime and hentai.

Today's blogger reminds me of my old boss at the video store: geeky, funny, self-deprecating, horny, and not getting laid. Ever.

The blog design wouldn't be terrible if it weren't the three-column blog of doom, with gadgetry coming out its ass and way, way too much going on. Get rid of all the clutter and crap and scale it down to two columns. But I do like the tabs, especially his description of the various parts of his blog. And there are ads. Goddamn motherfucking ads. He also has us click to read more. I understand using it if there are lots of images to load, but otherwise, hate it.

Otherwise, I kinda like this blog. I know. Weird. But Baddie is self-deprecating and funny-ish. I chuckled, even. He doesn't take himself too seriously, and he's not a bad writer. He owns his geekitude, and I guess I just have a soft spot for that.

I could relate to the Comics I'd Like to Fuck post. Don't judge me. Gaston was hot. He mentions vagina dentata and likes Gaiman and Whedon, so he's pretty much ok in my book. Oh, there are some "huh?" moments because of the whole I'm not Filipino thing, but there was no Tagalog overload.

Overall, I found Baddie to be not at all bad but in fact quite charming. He knows who he is, and he's unpretentious and genuine and silly and really pretty funny.

He lies, though. There are shockingly few unicorns.





I considered giving you an extra half a star, but I couldn't bring myself to do it based on your cluttered and ad-infested design. And the lack of unicorns. Why you gotta bring my hopes up like that?

  1. With intense penis-chomping and penis-eating action, this scene earns its spot in film history greatness.


    Serious ownage.

    I KNEW you would love this guy. LB, FTW.

    HATE the blog design. In fact, I'd like to use my drill boobies on it. But, like the content.

  2. Settle down, Brodie.

    Unlike you Calamity, I am a comic-geek, a nerd if you will, and, as such, will have to check the blog out before I properly comment...I've some serious comic-snobbery to engage in.

    Bites: drill boobies?

  3. Can't you just imagine how something like this could totally come in handy for me?

  4. I don't know, LB. You don't cover the Winged Victory of Samothrace in sack cloth. Why obstruct the view of your own works of art?

  5. Anyone who sat through Teeth and can blog about it with passion is ok in my book.

    The site took forever to load. Maybe his server needs some drill boobies . . .

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well, I'd only wear it occasionally, Calamity. When needed. For, ummmm, drilling shit. Like a hole in sack of shit I used to date's head.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I totally like this guy. Blog looks annoying, but is fun.

    And he talked about Teeth, which I literally just saw just last week. Kick ass. You can't help thinking that it should be a Troma, and then you're just so relieved it's not, because Troma is exhausting.

    And I'm also bummed that Joss left Astonishing X-men. But then again, who isn't?

  8. If I had drill boobs and teeth in my vagina, I'd probably get a lot more writing done.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I wouldn't get shit-all done if I had drill boobies and teeth in my vagina. Except a whole lotta drilling and biting.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yep. It's official. I'm dumping my husband for you, dear Calamity. A Mallrats reference as the title and you're reading Buffy's season eight? I gotta go change my underwear...

    ReplyDelete
  11. No, no, no, no, no.
    This is just all wrong.

    Please don't encourage this kind of shit.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm right behind you CMG, can't get it fast enough. I thought I was the only one.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Calamity, did you know that you are really just me in a much cooler disguise? It's true.

    Guess who used to manage a local indie video store? Yup, yours truly.

    I am so checking out this guys blog. Now.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ugh, I wish I had teeth in my vagina. It would truly solve all my problems.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Look, you women are talking like the vagina is a flower scented land of happiness for the male species to worship. It's not. At least once a month, it's a red, oozing crater of shame that even as a woman, you find repulsive. The last thing any woman needs is more strikes against their vagina. With the exception of the pirate whore, I have a feeling that some of her travels may have left some junk in the cave. So, somebody install some teeth on that thing, the rest of you, well, I kinda like the idea of the drill tits. Go with that.

  16. the only junk I have is in my trunk.

  17. My bad, but neither pirates nor hookers are notorious for good genital health. You being both, I was playing the odds.

    ReplyDelete
  18. goddammit, 'having', Key. Notorious for 'having'. Stupid son of a bitch.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If my vag was fanged and the tits were drills, I'd never have to reach for a weapon.

  20. Ghost, it was a good guess, luckily the gonorrhea cleared up nicely with a strong dose of antibiotics.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Knew it. Do you know what else anitibiotics are good for? Making your pee smell worse than it already does.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I knew there was a reason it smelled like asparagus lately!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So this was a recent transaction. Bummer.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm starting to think you're taking me seriously. I never actually had the gon. Or any other variation of crotch rot for that matter.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't take anyone or anything seriously. I'm starting to think you like asparagus.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Indeed. Asparagus is the magical fruit for your pee.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wonderful! How about some gonorrhea?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, if you're offering then I'll take it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. It really is a numbers game I guess. You might want to start looking for friends with antibiotics.

    ReplyDelete
  30. well luckily I have a doctor in my little black book, so I'm good there!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Perfect. You don't mind doing this on camera, right?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh. Wow. This has all gone horribly pear-shaped. I think I need to spray some bleach in my eyes. Or my cootch. Not sure. Maybe both?

    ReplyDelete
  33. wouldn't be the first time ghost =)

  35. I take exception to Ghost of Keyworks comment,my vagina IS a flower scented land of happiness.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Baddie, how's it feel to have inspired comments on gonorrhea and oozing gashes? Nice, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  37. It should burn a little.
    @FF: I don't believe you.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That would make you my mother. And if my father had found said flowery place, he surely would still be bragging about it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @keywork...

    And I thought my family was fucked up.

    I like the reviewee, he should start commenting here more.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Bagel is my daughter. Speaking of rarities, I actually posted something new.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Calamity, yeah. Nice. I always feel proud whenever a review of my blog inspires a profound discussion like this.

    LB, maybe I will! Or... will I? dun dun DUNNNN
