Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “While I’ve heard good things about Kaiji, the form the violence takes in the show makes it hard to recommend even for fans of anime, so I recommend giving this week a miss – unless you’re a fan of Jodorosky and want his movies on 4K.” Blaine says, “I also fail to find much of note here, although my mother would be very upset with me if I didn’t mention Annie Get Your Gun.”

    Probably still showing up as anonymous despite using a computer and browser I’ve never used before but one of my favourite rants is up there, so…

    A while back someone told me about Alejandro Jodorosky proposed version of Dune. So I figured, hey, lets look into this guy.

    I watched the documentary about his vision. I watched Fando Y Lis. I tried to watch El Topo.

    Thank friggin goodness he never got to make Dune.

    I like artsy movies and weird movies, and sometimes so-bad-its-good movies. Jodorosky is just bad. Like shocking purely for the sake of shock value. Ugh.

      Jethro, is that you? The slouch hat and Groucho nose/mustache glasses really threw me.

        Yea, it’s me. And what glasses? (:

        BTW, my super-paranoid script-blocker is blocking wordpress’ tracking and Facebook, so that might be what’s nuking my userid.

        • That sounds very likely. Can you disable it in a fresh private browsing window and try again? (Just so we know what it is?)

          • Jethro says:

            I wouldn’t be surprised — this is an incognito window with nothing blocked. I will say that WP (and b42) do always show my correct user, even to the point of saying “Jethro: You are commenting using your Bureau 42 account”, so if it works now it’s pretty bad coding on the part of WP…

            Yup, that’s what I thought. This is me blocking 15 (it started at 6 and keeps growing!) images from pixel.wp.com (which is probably not the culprit but is obviously tracking across any WP site) and a script from stat.wp.com which is probably what’s causing the issue.

            I’m also blocking Facebook’s trackers, of which there are a few on here. And just about everywhere else.

            For reference sake, I am allowing — sometimes explicitly — a lot of other things. You can see them at https://imgur.com/CcJzH9i.
