Militant Ginger

Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.

While the BBC’s attempt to relaunch its flagship export has floundered, it looks like Amazon’s ‘new and original’ Top Gear tribute is off to a triumphant start.

Militant Ginger 0
No Man’s Sky was supposed to be one of the most exciting game releases of 2016 – what went wrong? We’ve already written about the complaints made against No Man’s Sky, the indie space exploration game from Guildford, England, which was picked up by Sony and given dubious AAA backing.

Luke Cage is why we can’t have nice things…

Militant Ginger 0
The third of Netflix’s Marvel-themed shows debuted this week, and Luke Cage has fans and critics entranced. As our own ModCon02 described it: “All signs pointed to ‘Luke Cage’ being another win in the already rich Marvel/Netflix partnership, and Sweet Christmas was I right.” For me, I’m interested in the show’s success after the heated debate we […]

You Are God challenges our beliefs

Militant Ginger 0
A while ago, we wrote about the mind-blowing ramifications of No Man’s Sky. If anybody has studied The Simulation Hypothesis, it’s pretty crazy to think that the very world we experience could be nothing more than a computer simulation.  Well, now our theological presumptions are going to be tested even further, with the crowd-funded game […]

At the climax of Broken Lizard’s other masterwork, Beerfest, our heros find themselves in a dark alleyway in Amsterdam, where pot-smoking legend Willie Nelson recruits them for ‘potfest.’ It was an unexpected cameo (and one that led to years of demands for a Potfest movie.)   Hey @willienelson… “You wanna know why we pulled you […]

Militant Ginger 0
Echoba.se is your news source for Super Troopers 2 information. We broke the news that they’d started filming the hotly anticipated sequel, way back last year… and almost exactly twelve months later, we’re here to explain why people are claiming they’ve ‘just started filming’ all over again. It’s pretty confusing. News outlets are posting ‘the […]
