Life is sort of kicking my ass right now but I really do hate to leave the blog empty so here’s a number of youtube videos that caught my fancy recently.

Arch Warhammer presents A Truly Orky Story [23 mins]

Yes happy endings are possible even in the grimdark of WH40K.

 

technicalpic

Get in the trukk boyz!!!

 

How not to invade a planet[5 mins]

Still an awesome movie just as long as you keep it completely separate from the novel.

 

Mildly annoying historian Lindybeige goes over the entire Bayeux Tapestry from beginning to end. [22 mins]

A very interesting artform if nothing else.

 

Mim Headroom reviews the Sharknado of comics [16 mins]

If you wanted an example of just how ridiculous SJW Marvel can be; this is it… and yes the guy in the wheelchair is named Wheels. There is however an excellent Hawkeye leadership moment around the twelve minute mark. Mim gives these two issues in question a 5/10 because they somehow manage to be fun.

I actually think the terrible artwork helped this series in being more fun than it actually is.”

So yeah Occupy Avengers might be worth digging out of your local comic store’s trash bin. Such as the world we live in.

Not much to say this month so let’s just get straight down to business.

A quick Geekdom is under attack manifesto from what appears to be a fairly new site.

Remember fam, it’s all one big nerdwar. Focus on the battleground that you know best but remember that Alt-Culture is a combined arms operation. Do your duty and together we can push back the poz.

And in that note Space Ranger Jon Mollison gives a little pep talk to all us eager young space cadets.

http://jonmollison.com/2017/10/12/energizing-inspiration/

So grab your gyrojet carbines and get to your scout ships, boys because those space princesses aren’t going to just escape from those alien doom dungeons without somebody lending a hand, tentacle or other biomechanical grasping device.

 

Epic Viking squirrel music.

This almost seems to be two separate songs blended together. Definitely high energy and very squirrelly.

 

J D Cowan Discusses what actually made the X-Men good.

https://wastelandandsky.blogspot.ca/2017/09/the-truth-about-x-men.html

If you asked anyone in the 1990s why they liked the X-Men you would have few answers beyond the obvious. They had awesome powers. They were cool. They were distinct individuals with their own talents that backed each other up and meshed well in a group. They always take on the bad guys and put aside their own personal grudges to do so. The stories are explosive and fun.

Whatever politics the X-Men were created with were secondary to what kids enjoyed out of them.”

Justin Knight reflects on what drove him to write his latest novel, Praxis.

http://grandmasfloor.blogspot.ca/2017/10/the-journey-to-praxis.html

I loved the original Alien movie, because it was basically truckers in space. With Praxis, I wanted to do a warehouse in space.”

 

Diversity and Comics reviews Shirtless Bear Fighter [22 mins]

And he’s not really a fan. This comic seems to have wasted a perfectly good concept, in favor of cramming in lame jokes and completely ham-handed sarcasm.

Edit: Oh Look Somebody decided to DMCA the video in question. How stunning and brave!

 

Interplanetary Baseball Commissioner Jon Del Arroz discusses the rise of alternative culture [13mins]

 

Brian Niemeier weighs on Comicsgate

http://www.brianniemeier.com/2017/10/comicsgate-diversity-is-conformity.html

 

Yakov Merkin‘s second article on writing non-human characters. He gets into the nuts and blots a bit here.

https://yakovmerkin.com/2017/10/02/writing-non-human-characters-part-2-pitfalls-to-avoid/

“The first pitfall is obvious. Most readers won’t question a non-human character, but, if by the middle of the book they’re wondering what exactly is alien about this character, you have a problem.”

Looks about right

 

Paul Lucas reflects upon a Robert. E Howard poem and does an in-depth breakdown.

https://paullucaswriter.wordpress.com/2017/10/05/entropy-and-the-barbarian/

The climax of the poem is striking – the Dark Barbarian literally towers over all. He is a massive god looming over the remnants of a crushed civilisation, not just in our minds but literally.“

 

Forging a French Nail (Early WWI Trench Knife) [6 Mins]

Weapons don’t need to be fancy in order to be deadly. It’s also very sobering to contemplate that a great deal of World War I fighting was done with knives, sharpened entrenching tools or even clubs.

 

NotJohnDaker muses over how to work Vikings into the ACKS system.

https://themixedgm.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/vikings-for-acks/

As per this blog’s standard policy MOAR Vikings is better than less Vikings and I must applaud all efforts towards that noble goal.

 

Outward Bound: Colonizing Titan [31mins]

This is Titan the frozen flammable gold mine of the solar system.”

Exactly what it says on the tin. Amazing series. Certainly much better Sci-fi than Star Trek Discovery, especially when you consider that its budget could probably be calculated in ramen noodles.

 

Rawle Nyanzi gives us a post briefly discussing various highly romantic weapons that are in fact quite impractical but always seem to capture the imagination of the audience.

http://rawlenyanzi.com/romantic-weapons/

Swords, Spacefighters and Giant Robots sounds like a pretty awesome time.

Anyway that’s all I got for now. People do seem a little interesting in further “Ice Moon Corrigan” writing so I’m trying to plan a little of that out. Corrigan was supposed to get a passing mention in Decisive Action but it’s such an interesting idea for a society that it would be a shame not to play with the ideas just a bit more. We just don’t get enough Christian fanatic super-preppers turning entire moons into heavily fortified monasteries in modern Science Fiction.

But that’s another thought for another day until then For Breyland and for glory!

The Colonel’s Speech

Okay I probably am going to have to sit down and do a Ice Moon Corrigan story…

 

A image appeared on the screen of a older man with a neat short beard, dressed in a white suit. He grinned at camera with an undeniable charisma and began speaking in what the pirates’ computer would later identify as a ‘likely fake Old American deep south accent.’

This is The Colonel, speaking for the people and militia of Corrigan.

Alright you small-dicked weaselfuckers y’all ain’t fooling nobody with that whole ‘we come in peace’ bullshit. We all know why you’re here and let me start by saying that your kind of ‘free roaming businessmen’ ain’t all that welcome in these parts.

That said it looks like you’re here and we’re gonna have to do business. So I’ll try make this as plain and clear as I can. You’re here to make a quick buck and that ain’t happening. Our colony is self-sufficient in the essentials of life, so you can’t starve us out. As for the parts and machinery we need to import well… we got enough spare parts to last us about twenty years or so.

So whatever you think you’re going to do to us it ain’t gonna be quick and it sure as hell ain’t gonna be easy. Time is money, son. Especially in your line of work. By now I’ve sure you’ve had a chance to talk to our neighbors and learnt just what kind of fellows we are. You see Corrigan is a proposition Nation based on a very interesting set of propositions.

We build up our treasures in Heaven, not upon the mortal plane.

We ain’t got no gold, we ain’t got no platinum, ain’t got no fancy jewels either. The wealth we do have on this moon is in the form of heavy machinery and infrastructure. Not exactly the kind of portable loot you need to keep your operation running.

Now I just told you what We the people and militia of Corrigan don’t have. So to even things out I’m going to tell you we do have a whole lot of.

We got nothing but cold steel, hot lead and tungsten carbine penetrators and believe me the good ole boys will be more than happy to give it to you sons-a-bitches one round at time

You doubt my word you just go right on ahead and try it. Seriously son, with God as my witness any fight with us is a losing bargain.

Because you know damn well even if we had the cash to pay you off, Y’all could go eat a dick ‘cuz you ain’t getting one damn cent from us.

We’re ready to meet our God. Are you ready to meet yours?

The Colonel’s Speech

Quick Hit: Ice Moon Corrigan

Not a very productive weekend I’m afraid but I’ll leave you with this little piece of world-building.

 

While Corrigan is relatively wealthy it is also a frozen hostile atmosphere moon inhabited by nine hundred thousand armed to the teeth militant Christian fanatics, living in hundreds of practically self-sufficient ‘farmhold’ settlements which are all inter-connected by deep underground tunnels and who could as a last resort retreat their entire population into a carefully prepared fortified mountain range. You will get nothing out of the Corgis unless you ask them very, very nicely.

 

and yes the inhabitants of the ice moon Corrigan are called Corgis.

Quick Hit: Ice Moon Corrigan

Not What I Had Expected

I honestly had no idea Nazi Vaporwave was an actual thing it sounded too stupid to actually exist… but here we are.

I’ve posted some of Knight SGC’s videos before. His Sabaton videos in particular are superb (everything goes better with Sabaton.) I was still surprised to see THIS in his subscription feed. Masterfully edited to boot. Just sitting here laughing my ass off at how certain SJWs would react if they were send this as a twitter response.

I stated before that the age of the Nazi Meme is coming to an end and that it is time for the Alt-Right to move away from the tactic and look towards the longer term.

But this was just damn funny to see coming from a completely unexpected source and it really made my evening.

Not What I Had Expected

Another Goal Reached

The Alt Hero project has reached its fourth stretch goal at the 70K mark. As a result a novel has been announced that will be co-written by Vox Day and Jon Del Arroz (of For Steam and Country fame.)

AHgoal4reached

https://freestartr.com/project/althero/

The overwhelming response to Alt-Hero really has caught everybody by surprise and the timing of the whole project has an almost divine element to it. With Comicsgate slowburning in the background the one and half month delay of Alt-Hero’s launch (where they had to wait for the freestartr site to add certain features) has done nothing but add fuel to the fire.

It was also side splittingly hilarious to see Comic SJWs completely lose their shit over a single picture of Rebel when anyone who reads Vox Day’s blog had known that Alt Hero was in the works for about six months. Anyway the aggressive anti-fandumb marketing does seem to be doing its job.

Why just look what the critics are saying on Twitter.

Yeah, I’d be concerned about getting someone consistent but..I doubt any artist wants on board this trainwreck.” — @lashiec

Buddy this whole comic is about this dude’s hurt feelings.” — @Noalarmplanet

Nah, I prefer to slap my girldick on you and your shitlord Beale’s faces.” — @_Alsvid_(Context of the statement not recorded)

Alt*Hero is fertile evidence for my doctoral dissertation “Redhead fetishism is Asian fetishism for Dudes Too Racist for Asian Fetishism.” — @brendonbouzard

i’m sorry for giving alt hero attention but god i feel like i’ve entered some kind of alternate hell timeline” — @SpadesArts

Who the fuck is Matteo Mystic? Google search shows nothing. Also MULTIPLE people ‘pledged’ $5000 to that alt hero fake kickstarter trash.” — @kendallgoode

i am mad that my dream of someone in 5 years buying a storage locker full of unsold alt hero books full of only your shitty art won’t happen.” — @dewormy

Oh my god I clicked on it and I’m getting legit mad that they designed Alt hero to be counter to “The deformed Muslim Kamala khan” aAAAAAAA” — @Fatdragonfiesta

Current Mood among Alt-Hero supporters.

or maybe this.

Anyway I have been VERY POLITELY asked to turn the speakers back down to ten. So I will be taking it easy the next few days.
