An Update on This Thing is Bad

Hey folks, we're looking back at TTiB and decided we're not as excited about it as we were before our summer break. But we're still working on tons of exciting stuff behind the scenes, so look out for that.

TTiB Update - Summer 2018

Jack and Quinn need to take a break from This Thing is Bad while they deal with the most Bad Thing there is - finals! We'll be back soon, we promise.

TTiB Update - Summer 2018

017: Ready Player One is Bad

This week we put on our dumb-looking VR headsets and jack into a magical virtual world where everyone looks like Mr. Over Watch. And also we read an intensely uncomfortable poem about masturbation. I'm begging you to not take this audio out of context. Follow us (but please don't @ us:) twitter.com/Jackapedia_ twitter.com/BackwardsFlow Grab a shirt!: bit.ly/LuminousMerch

017: Ready Player One is Bad

016 - Heathers is Bad

This week, Jack and Quinn recruit new Luminous member Steven to discuss one story told across three mediums - a story of empty humor, cliche, and overt bigotry. And since the upcoming Heathers TV show seems to hate millennials for being too progressive, we dunk on Joel McHale and Ricky Gervais for doing the same thing. Don't forget to check out Steven's podcast, the CurtainCast! https://soundcloud.com/luminous-studios/sets/the-curtaincast Follow us (but please don't @ us:) twitter.com/Jackapedia_ twitter.com/BackwardsFlow twitter.com/TaxiPhish twitter.com/thecurtaincaist Grab a shirt!: bit.ly/LuminousMerch

015: Minecraft and Player Archetypes

In the third This Thing is Good special episode, Quinn reveals one of her somewhat-guilty pleasures - Mining and Crafting. Jack and Quinn discuss what makes Minecraft so appealing to all ages and why its broad appeal shouldn't make it embarrassing to enjoy.

014: Elon Musk is Bad

This week on TTiB, we're branching out a little and taking on something that's not a book or a movie- it's a weird cult of personality around a rich guy who pretends to be smart. Then we just kind of get mad about capitalism for a while, so it gets pretty rowdy in the middle.

013: Harry Potter is Bad

In today's episode of This Thing is Bad, Jack and Quinn tackle their biggest subject yet: a book series for tweens. We discuss JK Rowling's fabricated diversity, Harry Potter's secret power of framing the world, and college-aged nerds running around with broomsticks.

012: Cards Against Humanity is Bad

This week on This Thing is Bad, the story of an irreverent card game and the irresponsible company behind it. Jack and Quinn discuss punch-down comedy and corporate performative progressivism. It's like... The Inevitable Heat Death Of The Universe meets... My Sex Life. God, these cards suck. (Quinn is taking over editing for the show, because I guess I did well enough on the last one. Direct your complaints to me.) Follow us (but be careful about @'ing us): twitter.com/Jackapedia_ twitter.com/BackwardsFlow Grab a shirt!: bit.ly/LuminousMerch

011: Anime is Bad (with Special Guest @actualtriangle!)

This Thing is Bad rings in the new year by tackling one of the most passionate media fanbases around - Western Anime Fans. Join Quinn and special guest Cole as they try to fill the Jack-shaped hole in the episode by discussing the economics of exploitation and the codification of bigotry. There's jokes in there too, don't worry. (Quinn edited this episode btw, so if it sounds a little off you know who to blame.)
