think we all need at least one really nice positive thing about the
entertainment business every single day of the year, including weekends.
Sometimes it may be something simple, like a video that showcases
something fun and sometimes it may be a movie poster that embraces the
aesthetic we all want Hollywood to aspire to. Sometimes it may be a
long-winded diatribe. Sometimes it’ll be from the staff and extended
family of CHUD.com. Maybe even you readers can get in on it. So, take
this to the bank. Every day, you will get a little bit of positivity
from one column a day here. Take it with you. Maybe it’ll help you
through a bad day or give folks some fun things to hunt down in their
busy celluloid digesting day.

What I’m Thankful For:
Product rip-offs with a Christian angle.
It’s always a few thousand rotten apples that spoil it for the bunch.
I understand why there are Christian-specific stores. I don’t understand why there is a Christian puzzle game that looks like a mixture of Minesweeper and Tetris. It’s not like any argument could be made for those games being offensive. I don’t understand why there would an RTS based on the godforsaken Left Behind books. The fact that’s a brand is scarier than any Antichrist showing up to kick our ass. I understand why they’d want to do a rip-off karaoke game around hymns and whatnot, but to rip-off the packaging of the real karaoke games? It’s like there’s a disconnect somewhere and it makes me very happy.
It makes me happy because most clear headed people see right though this kind of shameless money grubbing nonsense.
But I’m sure as hell glad they’re out there.
