Davis Aurini’s not-version of Not The Sarkeesian Effect is out!

Woah! I wasn’t expecting this, but here it is. I have not yet watched it. But I imagine I will have some further thoughts when I do, because, holy crap, it’s Davis Aurini’s version of the Sarkeesian Effect!

Sorry, I mean, his version of a, no, wait, it’s not a version of anything, it’s his “separate independent work that should not be considered a ‘version’ of The Sarkeesian Effect or derivative of it,” as a title card in the “film” explains,

Even though it’s, you know, about Anita Sarkeesian and her “effect,” and even though it uses “footage originally filmed for use in The Sarkeesian Effect.”

That’s Aurini’s story and he’s sticking with it.

Anyway, I’m opening up a bag of popcorn and watching it. Join me, will you?

EDIT: Ok, I’m thirty seconds in and already tacky as hell graphics and badly recorded voiceover! This is gong to be good. By which I mean terrible.

EDIT 2: Ok, it’s not quite 4 minutes in and I’m getting bored. Damn. That’s what happened with that other totally unrelated film too.

I look forward to your report 🙂

Glorious. I can’t wait for a public premier. Maybe he’ll best his former partner and get ten whole viewers. 😀

Every time I try to post in the pony thread, my comment gets eaten. Anti-Rarity conspiracy, perhaps?

I would have serious doubts about the “wholeness” of anyone who showed up. Did you by chance mean to say “asshole”?

I enjoy watching Aurini’s stuff. It’s so bad that it delights me. So far, this is no exception.

The ‘effects,’ the fonts, the volume going up and down randomly, just him talking over a screen with a load of thumbnails for minutes of a time. Did I mention the fonts?

Someone else can talk about his ‘points,’ I’m just enjoying his production values. How much money did he and Jordan get for this again?

Oh man, he just said ‘macabre tableaus’ and I think I heard him doing jazz hands.

I’m grabbing some popcorn, other snacks and strong alcohol (too bad my absinthe hasn’t arrived yet…ah well, guess we’re sticking to gin and/or vodka)

“the damage she’s done to video games; the damage she’s done to women; and ultimately, the damage she’s done to free speech”

interesting escalation. someone’s priorities are showing :-p

Somehow, I doubt that any of this material was used “with permission from The Sarkeesian Effect”. Anyone want to place bets on how long it’ll take Jordan Owen to throw a fit and call Aurini a shit filmmaker again?

Randomly skipped around the shit show. Davis includes an interview with a Wikipedia editor. The guy just babbles about the most trivial minutia of an edit war while Jordan stares at him and gnaws on a pen. Riveting!

According to my calculations, they're due to be back in the buddy stage of their abuse cycle.

If countless angry dudes are allowed to post hours and hours of videos of how horrible Sarkeesian is on YouTube, then she has done no damage to free speech. Why don’t they get that?

I know, I know. Their version of free speech means “I can say anything I want and never be criticized and I should never have to see or hear anything I don’t like or agree with” but it still baffles me so much. How can anyone remain so completely ignorant about what freedom of speech actually means?

Anyway. Any skull sightings yet? I’m still giving it tl;dw, but I’m kind of impressed that it’s not over two hours long. I didn’t know anyone in the manosphere was capable of that.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Not even going to try.

I’ve got too much work to do and if I’m going to procrastinate, I’m going to do so by playing video games. I’ll watch someone else’s review of this movie later.

It’s so beautiful it hurts. I think you’ve killed me. I’m going to die laughing.

Are you saying that petty anger over minute social media bullshit isn’t extremely relevant!? Especially as it demonstrates the Truth™ of wimminz taking away our free speech!? MISANDRY!

Anyway, I look forward to hbomberguy’s take down. I’m sure the guy behind Folding Ideas will have a great response, too.
