Commented on Dashcon

Sorry the entry looks like shit. I’m hoping some more recent editors can help clean it up.

Created a meme entry for Dashcon.

Commented on 2014 Tumblr-4chan Raids

If that’s the case, then this would be World War 3 and not World War 1.

World War 1 was 4chan vs. Reddit.
World War 2 was 4chan/Reddit/tumblr vs. 9gag/iFunny/Facebook.
That would make 4chan vs. tumblr World War 3.

4chan likes to participate.

Commented on MOUSE FAN CLUB

I don’t know why surreal, poorly-made CGI shorts are so addicting, but they are.

What program even makes these?

Commented on #NotACosplayer

Well this one is actually kind of easy to relate to, having been to a few of these cons. The funniest thing is that the “insulters” here usually never even cosplay themselves (they just wear some “geeky t-shirt” and think it’s on the same level.) They don’t know that getting the costume is pretty challenging, and being insulted for it can be a pretty crushing blow. They’re also the same ones who whine about how they’re still mistreated for being “oppressed” as geeks for liking Star Wars or Marvel or something and then turn around and pick on homestucks and bronies. Geek culture is starting to look more and more pretentious and I’m glad something is being shown in response, even if it is more hashtags.

Also, we should just make one big list article for “hashtag activism” and fill it up a-la-bronyspeak.

I feel like this show was actually more entertaining for adults than it was for the children.

The logo doesn’t really affect the content too much. That being said, the hierarchy stands at…

Didney Worl > Walt’s stuff > The rest of the Disney movies > Old DC sitcoms (Phil of the Future, That’s So Raven, etc.) > New DC sitcoms

Commented on The Chronicles Of Rick Roll

Let me tell you two useful pieces of information.

1) This isn’t the first time geek culture has been grinded hopelessly for money.
2) It won’t be the last.

The video games crash of 1984, the Nintendo cartoons, and now things like these mehmeh movies. What I find the saddest is that the corporate bigwigs who cause this stuff don’t really think what they’re doing is how it really is. They probably think that this is made for us, but we really are usually content without it. By the time this comes around, it might as well be as old as Jesus.

The funniest thing is, it usually ends up giving back to us later in weird, beautiful ways. When 1984 hit, we boomed a generation of indie game developers that can nowadays make better games in one week’s time. When the shitty Nintendo cartoons stopped airing, they were reshaped into the Youtube Poop that empowered geekdom creativity for years, still being relevant to this day. I feel like since our memes have been slowly slipping from our fingers, in the past year the internet has really shifted from focusing on memes back to more fandoms and franchises. I see people talk less about r/AdviceAnimals and more about the latest episode of Kill la Kill. Less about rage comics and more about conventions. It’s shifting more to be one step ahead. It won’t stop anytime soon.

Commented on Adblock / Adblock Plus

Normally, I use Adblock. What the Adblock haters don’t seem to get is that there’s kind of a difference between seeing a billboard for Piccadilly or Adidas on a highway and being forced to have flashing “XXX BANNED IN 17 COUNTRIES ROMAN ORGY ROMAN ORGY” on my computer screen for an indefinite period of time.

Granted, I do disable it whenever I go to places where I specifically want the creators to get the most out of their work. If I’m going on places like Cracked or That Guy With The Glasses, sure I’ll disable it for the people running the site; but looking at flashy, virus-spreading bullshit isn’t worth it to give some guy who runs the website that I googled something like a 10th of a penny the first and only time I ever go there.

A mystical fruit that has incredible properties, no real evidence, and an unreasonably expensive price?

This isn’t a meme it’s a carnival sideshow.
