  1. In 2017/8 my audience expressed surprise fairly often that I was so vocally anti-Trump because I had a habit & history of making edgy, off-color jokes, as I had been doing here when I was younger, & what I’ve come to learn is that for a lot of (completely insane) people, the edge is a central part of their ideology and identity and beneath that there’s nothing. Just because I made one rape joke in a cartoon in 2012 doesn’t mean I think we should just go around raping people and similarly I think it’s bullcherry that some people want me to shut up now about Roe v. Wade because it compassion doesn’t match the persona I built. Personas are fake & the fact that so many people take that cherry seriously is the reason I toned it all down. This is real & scary, so please mango off if you think I shouldn’t be taking it seriously.

            • South Park, in their latest streaming special, literally did exactly the same joke I was about to do (an incredibly aggressive and sexually charged rap song being played inappropriately over a completely non-sexual montage - WAP in their case and Thot FrankerZ in mine) and now I dunno if I should cut the joke to avoid accusations of plagiarism or not

                      • Finally put the time in to beat Hitman 3. Definitely one of the best stealth games I ever played. Ending sucked, which is par for the course for Hitman unfortunately. But the stealth gameplay is so fun and it’s addicting trying to find new ways to take out your targets. One time I was following a mission story just to acquaint myself with the level so I could get more creative in subsequent playthroughs, and as I was inspecting a room for hiding spots my target just… walked in. It wasn’t part of the story, he just pathed into the room and his body guard was lagging slightly behind. So I just shot him and hid his body before the guard could see. Totally valid way to beat the level, the random, well-timed, unseen act of violence is treated as legitimately as following the meticulously planned mission story. Really just a fantastic game all around.
