This is unsurprising and retarded:

Archie-Gun-Shot-Die

Oh wow, an “openly gay” character in Archie Comics, and a shooting of that character which Archie tries to stop and ends up taking a bullet and dying.  *gasps* *primal screams*  sooooo cutting edge… so edgy… so relevant to the struggles and things going on in today’s world. *eye roll*  To make things even better, the gay character Kevin Keller Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.  Like if that isn’t the perfect manufactured character and story line I don’t know what is.  I feel like I’m gagging on a rainbow filled unicorn horn right now.  It’s a real shame that the writers didn’t have the foresight to make Kevin Keller black or Mexican, a war amputee, and a transvestite midget too… that really would have pushed the “Ooooohs and Aaaaaaaahhs” over the top and gained major points for originality.  So much white privilege in Archie Comics it’s like a Hitler Youth publication.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the storyline of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

Archie-Kevin-Keller-GayROFL that quote is literally the gayest thing (no pun or disrespect intended) I have ever read.  My sister and I used to read a lot of Archie comics because my grandparents owned a store.  I lost respect for the franchise when they started repeating storylines years later in comics thinking people wouldn’t notice.  Well we did notice and stopped reading.  The comic also got watered down heavily as the world was beginning to change to what it is now, where people who own companies convince themselves they have to walk around on eggshells and not dare say anything non-politically correct which would piss anyone off.

This is the official last post I do about this unless it starts being related to guns at some point:

I thought PWS was a firearms company, not a productions company that produced shitty cartoon soap operas.

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoIf you like throwing 6.5 minutes of your life away watch the video.  Otherwise take my word for it and spend that 3 minutes writing PWS an email asking them “WHY?”.

I can’t be the only one who thinks this cartoon is a complete waste of time.  I have seen glowing comments on other blogs about it though. *shrug*

Cyanide & Happiness with an “I wish a MFer would” type scenario:

Let me start off by saying every time I see a video with vector type graphics like this I immediately am like “OOHHHHH this will look awesome on my TV in 1080p”, and then I stop the fireplace screensaver I usually have on at night and put the video up.  Secondly, a couple of the people who emailed me this speculated that it was maybe subtly attacking gun owners.  In my opinion it’s just Cyanide & Happiness doing what they do best, and just exaggerating everything to get laughs.  I’ve been wrong once or twice though.  I’d have to say the part that I did cringe over though was actually something I missed the first time I watched the video because it’s after the initial credits come on (I stopped there the first time).  When I was writing the post it was up on my other screen and I saw him sucking on the shotgun… yea I didn’t care for that, but again likely just done to get a rise out of us.

Cyanide-And-Happiness-Shotgun-MouthThoughts?  Funny, or not funny?  Tactical mullet not funny because it’s true? :P

The ATF comic they did a while back reminds me of the ARES armor thing that’s going on right now.

Conrad gets violated in the future:

Conrad-The-ConstitutionPushing the envelope like crazy as usual.  I can’t wait for Season 3!

This is what I was expected Half Cocked to be… quite unlike the pile of garbage it actually has been so far.

A weak second episode…

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoAfter the first episode, and the shot show episode I was optimistic but longed for the episodes the be longer.   Weeeeeeeeelllll, this one was longer.  It was basically useless from a gun content and story standpoint though.  I hope this picks up fast because not even the awesome Archer style animation and crude jokes can save it.

Just when you thought R.I.P. Ammunition was the scariest ammo ever:

Failure-To-Fire-WebcomicFrom the guys over at Failure To Fire.  Good stuff.

I hope 2014 is the year of one-upmanship with regard to who can make the most retarded ammunition / ammunition marketing campaign.  That would be entertaining to watch.
