    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Same energy.




    How many times do we have to teach you this lesson, old man? Times have changed, you didn't. Your time is gone. Hung up, dried up, blown away. Now get back onto that porch and rock yourself slowly into the sunset while we youngsters, we movers and shakers, rock the world to the beat of the digital generation.

    IT IS CURRENT FUCKING YEAR!
    Sure, fine, you're relevant and important. The twits shall set you free.

Not immediately recognizing bit players on the small twitter stage smearing themselves with feces for attention doesn't mean I'm passively ignoring the biggest threat to all our sacred freedoms!1!1!.

    So, yeah, if you want people to care about this particular twit twitting about vidya pop culture celeb, don't fucking assign homework so you can feel all smug and shit over the people that don't obsessively follow your favored shithole on the intarwebs. I know it's a big ask to expect some adult behavior when talking vidya, but maybe try.
    Those screen shots and memes are the current form of propaganda by neo-fascist. Only a few people will care enough to start looking up the memes to see what tgey mean and neo-fascists hope this search will lead the curious to them and radicalisation. Same way ISIS works with its propaganda videos.
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    Okay, serious talk. There are those who proclaim that the Pewdiepie vs Youtube/T-Series/MSM fight is one of 'the little guy entrepreneur' versus the corporates. Others that think the fight between Pewdiepie and the MSMs is "old media" versus the "new media" (and that Pews is really just a proxy for youtube). The venn diagram of these two are real tight (as you may have noted when you read that linked article).

    I'm of the opinion that it isn't exactly so nice and cut and dry. There is certainly a good bit of 'wokeism' and SJWness in the mix, as well plain old stupidity (as you might have noted in the pics Guyjin posted, 90% of the people Pewdiepie was following aren't even conservative, let alone alt-right, let alone 'nazis'. And the idiot didn't even realize who the last group was, hint for the retard seats, it's T-Series).

    And, in case you've missed it in the last decade there's been a strong push to 'regulate' the internet. It's come from not only the government (in varying waves and degrees) but the largest internet corporates (Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc). So that's gotten mixed into the conspiracy theories and debates.

    Are you all caught up on why Guyjin might have posted an idiotic SJW posting idiotic woke messages in the idiotic "SJW Shenanigans" thread now? Or do I need to keep you after class for personal 0ne-0n-0ne learnin?

    You may be surprused to kniw I'm actually aware of ppd in regards to the YouTube access fight. However, tying that real struggke against corpratism into some rando being a hypocritical shitweasel is a huge stretch. Typical of those that view Twitter as a huge battleground in the Kulture Warz, though.

    Reread those last two sentences old man. And maybe use both eyes. I didn't say the idiot SJW was tied into the bigger picture. He's an idiot SJW, doing idiot SJW things, so it get's posted here. The big picture stuff was because you kept acting clueless as to why someone who's anti-SJW would be posting about an idiot SJW in the "Soc Shens" thread.

    Nope. I was wondering what what made this special, as there was zero context. It's apparently not at all special, but you apparently have a raging e-boner to educate people on tangentially related Kulture Warz stuff. Or, maybe, just a raging e-boner for pewdiepie. Perhaps both?

    Are you next going to demand context for why people are posting about Umbran in the Asshattery thread because that too is nothing special?

    Yup. It isn't special or significant. Like most of people's tweets. Most of the world does not know or care about Umbran. There are just a few people on CM and EW who care.

    Nope. I mean, you can try to make me the unreasonable one for asking why some random screengrabs of someone you admit is just a run of the mill asshat on twitter while you went on a rant about why everyone needs to know about pewshisface and the fundamental importance of freedoms he defends for us all (which you aid him in with your education outreach, I guess).

    Yup, don't get, or really much care, about that gag, either. I'm sure it tickles those in the know.

    But is he sacrificing himself to himself?

    Surely you've at least read "American Gods"? Either way, do yourself a favor and watch the screen adaptation so far. Season 1 was only eight episodes, and we're only 2 episodes in to Season 2. Like I said, it really is Quite Good.

    Also, Mistwell should take Media. That shoe certainly fits.

    Can you, though? Denying yourself the sweet release of comic-book-guy-explaining isn't healthy.
