Yeah, we’re going to be getting some X-Men in our Marvel Studios movies, folks. I know that’s what everyone is interested in, as it pertains to the fucking Disney-Fox deal. That, and not, you know, Disney slowly acquiring our entire goddamn culture. X-Men! With the Avengers! Wee!
Folks, it seems as though Disney’s fattening is going to continue. If you believe the tea leaves and the echo chamber, consummation may begin as soon as next week.
Disney was in talks to buy 21st Century Fox properties, as it continues to engorge itself on all culture
According to a shit load of reports yesterday, Disney was in talks to buy a significant amount of properties from 21st Century Fox. Admittedly, the news was both bonerfying and terrifying. A mix of “holy shit, Wolverine in the Avengers” and “dear god, Disney owns all of Western culture”, you know?
There’s something always freeing in seeing humanity collectively shrug at progress, and just lean into our collective rot. Like, how else am I supposed to interpret fucking fried chicken scented bath bombs?
Netflix drops ‘Stranger Things’ old school mobile game. Also gives a middle finger to oversaturation
Netflix has dropped a Stranger Things game on mobile devices today, seemingly out of nowhere. Assuredly the company intends on pumping the fucking brain-plate of the collective consciousness full of the Upside Down Shit, to celebrate the second season’s release this month.
Nicolas Cage has been turned into a snack in Japan. Typically I spread cheeks and push when it comes to promotional materials for movies. However, this one clearly fucking nails it.
Remember when Disney announced they were starting a streaming service? And when they said they were taking their Marvel and Star Wars flicks and going home? But then Netflix was like woah woah, we’re going to negotiate and try and keep them? Well, Netflix ain’t keeping them. They’re going to be exclusive to the House of Mouse’s streaming service.
I don’t really fuck with anything the creator of Scandal has done. Due to time, not dislike. Scandal seems pretty enjoyable. But, I’m here with popcorn, dude. This streaming arms race between Disney and Netflix is great slop culture theater.
It seems obvious that Netflix and Disney are in a War to Absorb All Our Pop Culture. The latest shot in the war finds Disney severing their ties with Netflix, and intent on creating their own streaming service. Man. Remember those halcyon days when we all thought that cord-cutting was going to save us money? Seems so long ago. Now we’re all scrambling, trying to find someone’s Hulu login, while bartering with our own fucking Netlix login to gain someone else’s HBO Go password. Yeah, fuck. Now there’s another service, another one! Christ.
