Lazy Time Reblog Sunday: Zombie Orpheus Entertainment & Rallsfilm

Back when I was a kid, there were these little comic booklets church going adults would give to kids to keep them quiet and to set them along the righteous path. The main message of these booklets was that everyone needed to accept Jesus as their Lord and savior like right now or else. They also taught that everything in the world is pure evil, everything but Jesus and the bible. The King James version of the bible. Not those other...less reliable versions? These comics were evangelical tracts written and drawn by a man named Jack T. Chick (Chick tracts), and they were awesome in their foolishness.

According to the word of Jack Chick, the list of evil things includes homosexuality, Catholicism, pornography, any religion that isn't Christian (except Catholicism because Catholics are bad, for some reason), and Dungeons & Dragons, to a name a few. D&D was one of the biggies. There was some big to do about it being an indoctrination tool for the occult (bad), and he even did a tract claiming that certain members were taught "real" magic if they reached one of the higher player levels. This, of course, made me want to learn more about the subject. If Chick had been smart, he would have said members were forced to do Algebra equations or dishes or give up candy for life or something despicable like that. Math, chores, and health food? Big turn off for kids, Jack. Just FYI.

"Just five more loads and my DM will totally teach me how to do the real magic missile!"


The beauty of Chick tracts are that they are so over the top with their allegations of persistent and ever present evil in ordinary life that they make themselves a parody without even trying. Which is probably why the guys at Rallsfilm and Zombie Orpheus Entertainment made a movie adaptation of Dark Dungeons, a Chick tract explaining the evils of RPG. The movie is almost word for word with the tract it's based on, and it is all the more funnier because of it. J.R. Ralls even had the balls to ask Chick Publications for the rights to make the movie version of the comic. And the dude got them! Roll twenty for awesome!

In honor of Ralls' massive brass ones, this week's Lazy Time Reblog Sunday is dedicated to him and the guys at ZOE for bringing Chick's paranoid fantasies to life. You can buy the movie here for just five bucks. You can follow Ralls here on his Facebook page. The guys at ZOE can be found here and here. And I also did a Doomtown Theater live-tweet movie review that can be found on Storify and will soon be up for display on Skeptical South's Live-Tweet Theater page. Until then, peace out bitches, and may your rolls be ever natural!

Five Things You Didn't Know Could Happen During a Massage

Everyone likes a good massage. Well, almost everyone. There are some that cringe at the very idea of being naked in a room while a total stranger rubs them down. These people are either crazy or have never had a massage before and don't know what they're missing. There are also the ones that like massage a little too much and should feel free to do to themselves what they erroneously believe they are paying me to do to them. Also, read item number 3 of this blog article I wrote in November of 2012 and follow the instructions therein.

But for those of you who are just looking for a nice, perfectly innocent, legal, and in no way rage inducing way to relax, massage is the way to go. That said, there are a few things you should be prepared for before getting that first massage. Things such as...

1. I CAN MAKE YOU FART LIKE A GODDAMN MACHINE GUN

I once had a client come in for a deep tissue massage who must have eaten a very big, extremely gassy meal right before climbing onto my tab…

Top 5 Things That Drive Your Massage Therapist Crazy

I recently read an article titled 8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know. After reading it thoroughly, I've come to the conclusion that the LMT's (licensed massage therapists, for those of you not in the know) interviewed either haven’t been in the business for very long, or really hate their jobs. For example, one of the items mentioned that most massage therapists get scared when their clients snore. I don't buy that. I think if a client is relaxed enough to fall asleep on my table, I'm doing a damn fine job. Isn't snoring like applause for massage therapists? It is to me.
It got me to thinking of my own personal pet peeves though, so I tried googling Things Your LMT Hates or Things That Drive Your Masseuse to Drinking, but these searches provided no useful data, and quite frankly I’d like to know what insane, perverted monkey Google put in charge of their search engine for me to come up with this list:

Since Google failed me miserably, I thought I wou…

Facebook PM Mating Call 2: Take the Hint Perv

If the internet has taught me anything over the years, it's this: No matter how unattractive you think you are, no matter how homely you might be, there will always be that one pervert who will whack off to your profile picture and beg you for cyber sex in a Facebook private message chat. And chances are, this pervert will misspell everything he types and mangle the English language beyond recognition. I consider myself an understanding, open minded person. People get lonely. I get that. If you never ask, you'll never know. But when someone tells you they're married and not interested in your need to "take out sperm", you should take what they say at face value and try to hit up someone else. Especially when they tell you they have a history of blogging morons who won't take no for an answer. Case in point:
