I Learned Stage Combat And It Was Amazing | What I Did On My Holidays

Where have you been, Jill? Well…umm…Sandwich, Kent, in a boarding school, for a week, getting an APC Basic qualification in Rapier and Dagger, Single Sword and Unarmed stage combat.

No, seriously. I had the best time, 10/10, would recommend. As long as you don’t mind sweating continuously for six days and gaining a large collection of weird bruises.


Jesus, Bro! | Stuff You Like 173

Hey, it’s those people you know from the Internet! And they made a movie! Jill reviews the Patron requested Jesus, Bro! (better known as That Cinema Snob Movie) and dives back into the weird and less-than-wonderful world of Pureflix.

Thankfully not for long.

Pureflix and Old Fashioned | Jesus Bro Part 1 | Stuff You Like 172

If we want to talk about Brad Jones and Jesus, Bro! then we need to talk about Pureflix. And Joshua Harris, and I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and courtship, and culture.

So you know. Not a lot to get through there.

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road? (It’s Actually Pretty Dark)

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.

Wait just a second.

The other side? Or…The Other Side?

Is this stupid meaningless non-joke really a joke about a suicidal chicken?

Um…could be…

Thor Ragnarok | Stuff You Like 171

OH BOY I LOVED IT A LOT. Having watched it after the bucket of angst that was Avengers Infinity War, I gotta say: it might just be my favourite Thor movie. And not just because his hair looks better in this one.

Though every single one of the siblings could use some shampoo and a brush. Looking at you in particular, Severus Loki.

BIG NEWS! (But No, It’s Not That I’m Pregnant)

Yes I know I’m a woman in my thirties with a presumably functional uterus, that’s everyone’s first thought. But hooray! Big news!

If you aren’t a subscriber already you should definitely subscribe and hit the bell icon, as uploads are about to get more sporadic. And you wouldn’t want to miss one, right?

But no, Jill Bearup is not pregarnt. Or pragant. Or pregnonan. Or pregarnet. Or any of those things.

Grief’s A Funny Thing | Han/Leia in The Force Awakens | Stuff You Like 170

So we know that Han and Leia are separated in The Force Awakens. But is this necessary to the story? What is the message we’re trying to send here? And do you think it works?

I mean…I do. But it still hurts.

Star Wars, man. Right in the feels.

Han/Leia No More…But I’m Kind Of OK With It | Stuff You Like 169

So we’re taking a dive into my first ship, the one I shipped before I understood that shipping was even a thing: Han/Leia.

Adpocalypse 2018 | Why Can’t YouTube Fix It?

YouTube STILL has a problem with ads running next to decidedly not-brand-safe content. Everything from North Korean propaganda videos to people with disturbing and illegal ideas about children and consent.

But why can’t YouTube crack down effectively? How has it tried to in the past? What’s up with the algorithms? And do they need a bigger moderation team (Yes. The answer to that one is always yes.)
