This just punched me in the heart.

Not quite my normal adventure posts, but yesterday I shot history-in-the-making as Mo’ne Davis became the first female pitcher to ever win a Little League Series game.

She pitched a two-hitter/no-run game.

It was incredible watching her perform. She had the skill and confidence of a world-class athlete. Can’t wait to see where this young lady goes.

Here’s Mo’ne on this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated:

And here’s my favorite quote from that article:

"I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model… I always wanted to be a role model, but being a baseball role model is really cool."

She throws a 70 mile per hr fast ball. Like Holly SHIT !

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

This is an important message on how privilege really works.

it’s good to remember that we shouldn’t only define ourselves by our marginalized identities. for example I am cis, I am middle class, I am educated, I speak English, I am a documented citizen—remember all of those identities you possess that give you privilege.

Always check your privilege. Everyone has one in some way

Rifftrax Live did Godzilla.

Last week, the people from Rifftrax did a live riffing of the 90’s horror for movies, Godzilla. In Godzilla, two hours are spent squandering a lot of money and a lot of potential.

Rifftrax felt it was it’s turn to give the movie some kicks. I noted the run up to the event earlier (and if you want some MST3K nostalgia, check it out.) This week they’ve done an encore viewing for people.

The show was a fun time. It started much like ever live show does, with an introduction by the trio of Mike, Bill, and Kevin. We also got a short ad for October’s next live event. Anaconda. It was an amusing ad that used some effects to show clips of that movie like it’s a bad 70’s grind house film.

Unfortunately they haven’t made that ad available yet.

But their other reveal is available. A new introduction song and animation for all future Rifftrax releases. The animation comes from Harry Partridge. The music comes from Jonathan Coulton.

It makes for a silly way to introduce the concept of Rifftrax, the trio of riffers, and the catalog of riffed movies.




The show itself was enjoyable. I can’t say it was my favorite riffing experience. A movie like Starship Troopers is already so ridiculous that the riffing is like frosting on top of the experience. Godzilla is more of a flat movie to me. Still, the trio on stage and their writing team helped create a very enjoyable night out. If you are a fan it is worth your time.


Of course, per Rifftrax tradition, they offered a plethora of jokes before the show even began. Enjoy a few I captured.
