I've been watching a lot of these short horror flicks since October, this one is particularly good. You could make the case this isn't a horror at all, since it's missing a lot of the typical elements, like blood & gore, or jump scares, or any on-screen deaths. Regardless, it certainly has the protagonist grappling with issues of horror, and I liked the actor's performance.

Could be a few categories really. Instead of more "my spoon is too big" or "my anus is bleeding" humour, this is more philosophical sci-fi. Kinda swings through a few different moods too.

So I found this guy from some "ask an athiest" type call in show, and frankly he's the most fun on that. But then this video goes a lot into gender & trans issues, which is something I've been a lot more interested in lately. It may be preaching to the choir here to put up Forrest Valkai's feelings on the matter, but getting into the science crunchiness of it was a treat.

So, Shaun the talking skull isn't the first place I've heard of this article, but he did sum it up better than the earlier ones I've seen about it. And Shaun has previously talked about the BBC's transphobia in at least one other video, where he goes into Terry Pratchett's "Monstrous Regiment". I'll say a little more in extended.

quote [ Capitalists are bad at business. ]
I've always thought that there was no way that capitalism could be a long term viable economic idea. It's nice to see someone who's crunched numbers to highlight all of that. It's a bit long, at 51:53, but worth it.
