New Name. New Domain. Same Complaining.

As you may have noticed, I have a new domain, chrisdantes.com. Did I sell my website? Nope. I legally changed my name. I’d like to explain why. If you want to just skip to the new website, click here. I’m going to let chrisasbury.com expire, so once that’s gone, it’s gone. Any new rants will …

Suicide

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but after Chester Bennington died, even I thought it was too soon. The sad reality, though, is that talking about suicide is kind of like talking about gun laws. If the rule is that “you can’t talk about it shortly after an event”, then you’ll never …

Nerd Cred / Nerd Acceptance

A few days ago, I posted a rant that mentioned how nerds don’t like change. To prove that I truly can complain about anything, I’m now going to rant about the exact opposite position. Today, I’m going to talk about how a certain subset of nerds need to embrace change. I don’t know if it’s …

America’s Changing Attitude Towards Russia

How the fuck did the Republicans in the US go from “watch out for the reds” to “hey, Russia’s not that bad”, in less than one hundred years? Seriously? We spent decades in a Cold War stalemate with the Russians, which was a giant chess game where the world was our chess board. Republican Senator …

Why I Think Star Trek: Discovery Will Be a Disaster

Yeah yeah, I know. “The show hasn’t even come out yet. Give it a chance.” But I’m usually right, so I’m going to predict the future, and we’ll find out just how right I am in September, or whenever this show actually airs. Star Trek: Discovery will be the first new Star Trek show in …

Review: Wonder Woman

Well the day has come. The DC Extended Universe finally has a decent movie. Let us all slowclap. The first solo superhero movie as part of the DCEU other than Man of Steel is here. I’ll get to spoilers, but I’ll warn you first. Though, there’s not a whole lot to spoil. Wonder Woman has …

Patriotic Revolutionaries

Earlier this month, I posted an article about how I thought Christianity and Conservatism were contradictory ideas. This time, I’m going to talk about two more antithetical ideas. Those ideas would be patriotism and revolutionary… ism. Quick side note. What inspired me to write this, is my conservative brother shared this picture on Facebook. No big deal. …

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2

I don’t think I reviewed the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but quick version, I loved it. It was an absolutely delightful movie. It was funny, had heart, had a pretty straight forward plot, and didn’t feel rushed. This sequel is a lot different. The characters are more developed. The plot is fairly simple, …

Can Christians Truly be Conservatives?

Quick disclaimer: I’m not going to really mock religion this time. This isn’t about whether Jesus actually existed or not. This isn’t about whether Conservatives are stupid or not. This is about whether Christian ideology matches Conservative ideology. Would Jesus actually be a Conservative? Do Conservatives actually like Jesus’ supposed message? That’s what this article …

Biography: Tycho Brahe

I really want to do a biography on LBJ, but every time I sit down to write it, I get distracted. Then I came across Tycho Brahe, and knew I had to write about him. Tycho Brahe might not be a household name, like Newton, or Einstein, but he discovered the supernova, and was instrumental …
