CURRENT MOOD:

Whoops, that last asker wanted the response private. Deleted but here’s my reply re: me yelling at Jontron

You are missing something! His praise tweet was directly in reply to me calling him out after he RTed and lol’d at a tweet comparing a historical photo of a lynchmob victim to present day social justice (those tweets are deleted now). He’s also been talking a lot about how it’s okay to casually use slurs and it’s NOT okay to tell anyone not to use those slurs because free speech. I’m not a fan of his, was not ever a friend of his, and he’s just one dude, but I am tired of this creator mentality that every little word that comes out of your lips must be defended and never apologized for and that anyone who’s upset by it must be faking!!! Boo to that. If I am ever being bigoted in some way, please know that I am extremely interested in hearing why and correcting my behavior, because the paranoia about the world getting “too PC” is some decades old bullshit for cranky uncles nobody likes.

Fans have taken Brody’s do-anything attitude and run with it. Video artist Neil Cicierega made two much-remixed online videos—Brodyquest and Brodyquest 2—where the actor travels the world, becomes a rock star, and turns into the universe.

Adrien Brody has seen Brodyquest. His dad showed it to him. “I made it my ringtone at one point,” he said. “It’s hilarious.”

just a tip if you reblog something with 100,000+ notes and add “how come nobody’s mentioned _______”

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Okay i’ve said this before and i’ll say it again bc nobody else seems to have thought of this, how was there temporary internet in 1870 

I’ve got news for you buddy, the internet’s been around for a long, long time

Anonymous asked: Hey, you're that guy. I didn't know you still existed. I remember your flash animations and found them rather racist. how did you go from making offensive flash animations about the Japanese to suddenly actually giving a shit?

I Progressed Past Age 14

(they weren’t that racist though were they?)

edit: obviously this is a concern troll trying to “get” me, but interesting question anyway

don’t say this to people even if they suck. I think I may have said this to trolls in the past because it’s dismissive and harsh, but, no it’s just a terrible thing to say.

80s Computers: TERRIFYING CUBES EMERGING FROM THE VOID OF SPACE. ENTER THE GRIDZONE.

90s Computers: Beige home appliances for the whole family. Put one in your study.

I like to dig through images from old computer ads and magazines. One odd observation I always make is how drastically they changed in just a couple years.

PC sales grew throughout the 80s as tools for offices and hobbyists. But come the 1990s, corporations noticed that growth was slowing down. So around that point they largely ditched the spooky sci-fi inspired imagery and starting doing what Apple had been doing for years: portraying PCs as warm & approachable, with a return to simplistic, Helmut Krone inspired advertising. The idea of the PC as a home necessity was solidified when Web and e-mail exploded in the mid-90s.
And it had good run. We’re in the “one phone and laptop per family member” phase now, and it doesn’t really need to be advertised anymore because it’s part of culture itself.
