The Third Shift


  1. Irony and cognitive dissonance will not die anytime soon, despite media declarations to the contrary.

    However, a remake of Red Dawn, post-Afghanistan-and-Iraq, is at least bearing the pair up for lunch money and giving them swirlies. I mean, a movie where Americans are talking about defending their homeland and the invaders (North Korean or Chinese, doesn’t matter) only see it as a “place” that will actually be taken seriously by many of my fellow citizens had to be someone’s idea of an overly elaborate joke.

    At some point there’s too much money involved for it to be pure trolling.
