    What?! -You start out with a break??!

    Now, why didn’t I think of this, back in the days as a performing musician.
    Brilliant concept! :D

    On a more serious note:
    Very much looking forward to another edition of TFI.

  • Lebowski Emancipated

    TftI is becoming my favorite feature at AVfM.

    I, for one, welcome more urgent alerts from “The Ministry of Fear”!

    What? No zombie apocalypse on AVFM?

      See, now this is why you’re supposed to send emails to talesfromtheinfrared@gmail.com! I wish we’d seen that sooner. :-)

      • OneHundredPercentCotton

        Sorr-eee! I just found it, and couldn’t BELEEEEVE none of our Ozzie friends hadn’t already posted it elsewhere…

        PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Booyah

          she neglects to mention she’ll be the cause in her “cute” little Triple-J publicity stunt

  • No Seriously

    First time poster, and i’m sure you guys have seen these videos, but it bears repeat. The Anita Sarkeesian situation is something that’s near and dear to my heart. I’ve wanted to see some of the bigger names in the MRM tackle the issue, but have come to realise that she’s just such an easy, pointless target.

    Anyway, great expose on her by instig8ivejournalism

      Yep they’re incredibly good work.

      One thing he left out–I asked him about it and he said it was because he could not definitively prove it–was the evidence that someone (I wonder who?) posted a promotion of that Kickstarter video on two different 4chan boards the day it was released–and they promptly disappeared after a day or so. Since it can’t be proven who did that or where exactly they went, he didn’t use it. But anyone who knows anything about 4chan knows exactly what would happen if you did something like that to the b/tards.

      It increasingly appears that she’s the most financially successful troll in interwebz history. But you know, she’s a girl, and cute, and has a sweet voice, so that makes it all OK.

    I’m relieved I opened the new cat blog at my workplace and not in front of the cats…because Archie (the demon brother of Asbo) would be demanding that I crochet him a cool cat chainmail outfit…

    Still, I am going to miss my regular dose of men with cats…SIGH…there is something beautiful about the interaction between two of my favourite things :-)

    • http://www.genderratic.com typhonblue

      Heh… the sinister men with cats will be back.

  • Booyah

    I cant get the page to play. Maybe I actually rocked up too early for once. Ah well looking forward to the show when I can hear it. Thanks to Dean and the guest hosts.

    Here are a couple funny comics. I don’t think he is really an MRA but these two are really funny.

      Actually, those are very important, because Scott Kurtz is one of the most famous and respectable web comic artists. What he says reaches a lot of people :)

      Bits of the red pill keep slipping out into the waters…

    Loved the videogame discussion. As part of the 25% (female hardplayer) I encounter mostly good treatment and camaraderie. Once I was discussing with a girl and she said that while playing in Team Fortress 2, people voted to mute her as soon as she talked, and that was because she was a girl. And I thought: She must be VERY annoying haha, because I have about 500 hours of play in Team Fortress 2 and that never happened to me, and never saw that happen to other women who play that game, and I encountered many.

  • JGteMolder

    I suppose next Tales from the Internet will cover the brouhaha about the “Guardians of the Galaxy” directory and his supposed “misogynist” post on a mixed male and female “superhero you’d like to have sex with” poll?
