Every Atheist Needs: Atheist Tiki Hour

Atheist Tiki Hour

I’ve raved before about works by Logospilgrim and I cannot rave about this one enough, either. This is a quick read (although it took me what felt like a millennia because I have had zero time to sit and read), but it’s going to leave you feeling great. Absolutely unique, this book has humour, compassion, moving

Every Atheist Needs: Bill Paxton In Big Love

Bill Paxton in Big Love

Over the weekend, the world became a little bit less awesome with the death of Bill Paxton. Forced to think back on his career, many of us have, in the last twenty-four hours, likely exclaimed that it felt like he was in damned near every movie ever made. 2 of the last 3 movies I

Every Atheist Needs: Eagles Of Death Metal: Nos Amis

Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis

Just over a year ago, we watched as religious fanatics attacked our most beloved institutions: rock & roll, sport & food. In Paris, the very soul of western culture was being terrorized, brutalized and slaughtered in the name of a raging mythological creature and the promise of his blissful playground in the sky. The joy we

Every Atheist Needs: Hand Of God

Hand of god

Settle the fuck down, heathens. It’s a television series. Produced by Amazon, Hand of God stars Ron Perlman as a judge who suddenly starts to receive instruction from god in the form of his comatose son’s voice. There’s really no deep, moving message you’re going to get from this show. It’s just an exercise in

Every Atheist Needs: The OA

The OA

Yet another television recommendation from GM? Yes! T.V. is where all the good storytellers have gone these days, let’s face it. Movies are clearly for simpletons now. You’ve got to have the memory of a goldfish to be able to enjoy seven incarnations of Batman per year. That and the need to “reboot” every movie that

Every Atheist Needs: Leah Remini’s AMA On Scientology

Leah Remini Scientology

Chances are if you’re an atheist, you know what the Church of Scientology is capable of. You’ve probably seen Going Clear and you’ve read the testimonies of ex-members… you’re familiar with the church’s M.O. and you know how it recruits, sucks you in, and cuts you off from non-believers. You know it’s a cult. You

Every Atheist Needs: Westworld

westworld

If you’re new here, you may have missed the fact that I am a T.V. nerd. I love the good quality television coming out of my screen these days: Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr. Robot, etc. I’m always looking for new shows, so when one of my favourite podcasts recommended Westworld, I hopped on that train

Every American Atheist Needs: The Party of Reason and Progress

Party of Reason and Progress

I know I haven’t posted anything about my reaction to the US election yet, but rest assured that’s coming in the form of a Common Heathens podcast sometime this week. Mr. Oz and I will be releasing an election special – it’s been slightly delayed but it should be out this week. In the meantime,

Every Atheist Needs: Sausage Party

Sausage Party

I’ve been waiting for so long to find the time to sit down and watch this. I was told many things about it: “It’s hilarious!”, “It slaughters religion!”, “You’ll piss your pants!”. Finally, this past Friday night, I was able to watch this so-called masterpiece of comedy. Now, there is a line when it comes

Every Atheist Needs: JW Library

JW Library

I have always hoped that the sorts of people who read my blog are also the sorts of people who can sense, from my tone and my personality, that not everything I say is literal down to the last letter. Of course, those hopes have been dashed now and again by my less… let’s say,
