Courageously Covering the Catastrophic Comicbook Collapse.

I’ve stated before that I’m not really any sort of comic book fan but that I find it necessary to keep at least one eye on comic related news simply so that I can hold basic geek conversations with friends (and readers.)

Just like with Gamergate it’s the Culture War aspect between the SJW converged industry figures (usually mid to bottom level) and the common fan than I find deeply, deeply fascinating.

So it was with much joy that I stumbled upon a relatively new youtube channel Diversity and Comics that is covering comics from an anti-SJW stance while still being approachable and normie friendly.

How Captain Marvel is the perfect icon of SJW Marvel

 

Questioning the Narrative that 40% of comic readers are female.

What is the first rule of the SJW?

We should have asked this question earlier.

Keep in mind that some genres of gaming are 99%+ Male

Why do Marvel Creators hate the fans?

Reminds me a lot of what Brian Niemeier said a while back about Hollywood hating it’s own audience.

http://www.brianniemeier.com/2016/01/hollywoods-hate-mail-to-its-own-audience.html

And the comments are worth digging around in (just wear gloves as it is still Youtube.)

The current crew at Marvel ARE awful; they’re rude, egotistical and they lack the creative juice that inspired a lot of artist back in the day. They’re all trend riders, their ‘inspiration’ only coming from what can make them seem like heroes. This isn’t what the writers and artist of years past did. They were not in it to be seen as political commentators which the current crew are and usually label themselves as. Even if the older artist and writers felt strongly in their political feelings they were always artists first.

The new crew ARE NOT. They are political and social obsessives FIRST, social media addicts second, glory riders third and at the very, very last, if at all, they’re ‘creatives’.”

Anyway I thought that was a discovery worth sharing. Marvel (and to some extent DC) has reached a state where they are completely dependant on recycling characters that were created forty or fifty years ago. This is beyond creative bankruptcy. The fear now is that the comic book medium itself will die out completely in the West… this would be a bad thing for all of Geekdom.

While I’m not a huge fan of the Alt-Hero project it’s definitely a step in the right direction and should be good for a laugh if nothing else.

They had to go back and one man decided to help them along on that journey.

Besides the idea here is to inspire others. Isn’t that what superheroes are all about?

Lever Action Fantasy

Gun Jesus Presents…

 

Mostly just posting this here so I can find it later. Certainly a very interesting alternate history question.

Also I’ve been assuming that the Mzabian jihadis would be using a mix of imported bolt action carbines and locally made black powder rifles but ‘John Wayne’ guns would be just barely within their indigenous techbase. They’re also the sort of culture that would really enjoy an Old Earth western movie. So I do need to explore that angle.

Lever Action Fantasy

Excuse of the Day

I’m currently nursing a rather embarrassing “lower body injury” which unfortunately has me in just enough pain to break my concentration. So once again there will be no writing on this here “writers blog.” Honestly I’m started to get rather frustrated and discouraged.

And then to add insult to injury some Random Torling declared this Space Opera Week. Space Opera Week was then IMMEDIATELY co-opted by friends of this blog (ie people who actually LIKE space opera.)

So for a least a few days I’m going to have to sit here and not write space opera during Space Opera Week. Hurrah!

The proposed battle anthem of the Viceroyal Breylandic Navy

 

Which bring me to another point I’ve identified a rather glaring flaw in the Breylandverse; the stories don’t seem to be very fun (too much serious business, like saving Breylandic civilization) and there really isn’t that much room for fun pulp Traveller-type adventures as the smallest civilian starship is a roughly eight hundred thousand ton tramp freighter with a crew of about three hundred.

So while I have no intention of abandoning my ridiculous collection of world building notes (I might start sharing a few here and there) I’ve also started playing around with something that for lack of a better term I’m calling the Nekoverse designed around TIE Fighter/Wing Commander dogfighting; MechWarrior style ground combat and genetically engineered catgirls fighting to liberate an enslaved humanity from evil pink space bunnies.

howthenekoversebegins.jpg

It’s an idea so stupid it might actually work. Or at least it will be fun break from time to time.

So anyway I’ll get back to you guys once I can think straight and have stopped feeling sorry for myself.

Until the end. For Breyland and for Glory. Wolfman out.

Excuse of the Day

Random Encounter

I’m probably going to regret posting this but… while I’m still completely hopeless when it comes to most human interaction I seem to have shut off enough of my anti-game to get myself in the occasional bit of trouble.

Note that the following takes place in about a thirty to forty second chance meeting.

 

Observation

Cute, high energy blonde chick (1)

Pierced nose but no obvious tattoos

Pushing up against the 2SD comm barrier but thankfully not over it. (2)

Very slender.

Slightly crazy puppy dog eyes.

Somewhat jailbait-y (3)

Nicotine stains on fingers

 

Orientation

Much cuter than most women I draw the attention of.

The nicotine stains are a HUGE warning sign when combined with how young she is. (4)

I’m completely unequipped to handle any sort of crazy bitch drama. (5)

 

Decision

The white race is to be saved by other means.

but there’s no reason to be an asshole, here.

 

Action

Maintain composure.

Flirt slightly to be polite.

DO NOT PURSUE. (6)

 

And because you shitlords are going to ask.

ladiesofeurope.jpg

Going to say Slavic but Germanic is also a possibility. Again we met very briefly and I didn’t have a chart handy.

 

End Notes:

1: Not a huge fan of blondes but they can be upgraded into perky redheads with a $2 redbull and a $10 box of hairdye. Both items are readily available at any Walmart.

2: This would put her in the 95-100 IQ range. Completely average and unremarkable but trust me I notice when I hit the wall. I think 105-110 would be ideal for me but most such women are pretty arrogant.

3: Guessing she’s about 22 but I’m bad enough at this sort of thing that I occasionally get sternly worded letters from Chris Hansen.

4: A lot of mental patients self medicate with tobacco (reduces stress and appetite.) Combine that with the vibe I got off of her and all sorts of alarms went off.

5: Know thyself. Know thy enemy. I need a sane five, not a crazy seven.

6: Made it a point not to burn any bridges since I live a small enough town that I’m likely to meet this woman again. There’s also the chance my first impression of her could be completely wrong. Still not gonna bite, too many warning signs.

7: Also there’s this. https://infogalactic.com/info/Rusalka but that’s probably going too far.

How I imagine the average French Nationalist feels right now.

 

Razorfist with a comical but exceptionally blackpilled take on the French election.

Vox Day breaks things down and puts things in perspective. Notice that The Supreme Dark Lord* is not downbeat here and is sharply dismissive of the wave of panic that the online Alt-Right had gone through in the last couple days.

Reconquista 2.0 is still on schedule this was merely a chance to start things a little early. Le Pen was not expected to win even for a while there it looked like there was a real chance of an upset.

Still it really does hurt to have a fourth quarter comeback stopped like that.

I haven’t really had the chance to look into the Macron leaks but it looks like he really is the Living Avatar of the Globalist Bankster Cuckgod. France in is for some interesting times… possibly the twilight of the Fifth Republic. Do they still have one of those guillotine things laying around?

macronleeks.jpg

The drug angle might be a red herring but I do imagine that Macron’s staff require a lot of drugs to handle the stress of selling out their country.

Still deep within the quivering mass of any cheese eating surrender monkey lies the gassy bowels of the French patriot and as the fire of nationalism burns the pressure builds. Trust me my friend you do not want to be downwind of a Gallic patriot when he finally lets loose.**

fuckyoufrance.jpg

Why most strategy gamers have a hard time feeling any sort of sympathy for France. Thankfully a handful of us are able to separate fiction from reality.

shootharder

Slightly off topic… but hey you never know.

*All Hail He Who Sits Upon The Throne of Skulls! Tremble before His not-mercy and bring The Dark Lord his tribute of SJW bones and antifa flags.

**Yes this entire post was just an excuse to tell a fart joke… and people at work say I have no sense of humor.

NerdLife: Space is Big

Nerd Life Two: Space is big edition. April 28th 2017

Sorry about the delay on this but I keep getting distracted by shiny things. Also watching a fair amount of anime lately which is somewhat out of character I suppose. However with most western entertainment consisting of nothing but SJW infested crap a man does get desperate from time to time.

If anyone cares the shows in question are:

Tiger Mask W (definitely worth watching if you’re any kind of an old school wrestling fan.)

Heavy Object (7/10 but had a satisfying ending. Recommended for the giant robot fans. The rest of you can leave it be.)

Arslan Senki (has a very Sun Tzu-ish feel to it. Prince Arslan’s not much of character but you’re really watching this because his companions and advisers are awesome.)

 

Let’s start things off with some mood music.

Damn this guy’s good.

 

Not entirely sure what this thing is… but hey shiny radishes.

http://www.nextbigfuture.com/2017/04/a-bionic-leaf-could-help-feed-world-by.html

Also more food is better than less food.

 

Now this is interesting. You remember those moisture farmer tower thingies from Star Wars? This might be the first step to making that happen.

Early American Whiskey (pre-bourbon)

A lot of good history here. Although something tells me most of the people reading this would already know about making Kentucky white whiskey.

 

Space Section: Been playing a lot of Aurora 4x lately.

1972 NASA short film on Mainframe computers and manned spaceflight.

Amazing what they were able to accomplish with computers that were basically as powerful as a modern wrist watch.

Related: The space shuttle runs on one megabyte of RAM. I think you could play Doom on that but I’m not sure. Definitely Wolfenstein 3D.

A few concepts for future space exploration. The comments section does not seem impressed.

Oh shit! Yes something like that would be a problem.

 

A BBC article lamenting the increasing problem of space junk.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39521406

Reminds of a story idea I had where an alien race blockaded Earth by releasing trillions of ball bearings into Earth orbit. Sadly I wasn’t able to think of an ending for that story as if somebody did that to us we’d probably be completely fucked.

 

Enceladus? I suppose that’s a reminder that we really don’t know that much about Jupiter or Saturn’s larger moons.

Midnight’s Edge on why some movies open early or later than the US market.

Yeah I was curious about that. I’d always assumed it was some sort of anti-piracy measure.

Declan Finn‘s most recent rant about Marvel comics; which is probably a good thing to end with.

http://www.declanfinn.com/2017/04/marvels-nick-spencer-works-for-hydra.html

I’m not a comics guy but most of my friends are so by default I’m forced to keep up on comic news in order to still in the conversation.

 

Well that’s all I got for now. Good night my Magic Space Aryan brothers and remember the bosun’s refrain. “Space is a cold, cruel, dark bitch of a mistress and she is always trying to kill you.”

NerdLife: Space is Big

For Death or Glory

A wounded nation wakes at last.

As one by one we see our task.

We will not go quietly into the night.

By blood and fire we shall fight.

 

Battered men with wounds and scars.

We still remember who we are.

An age of darkness, a time of fear

Just one more trial we must endure.

 

The shattered plow reforged a blade

They shall learn to fear the foe they made.

With youthful blood and ancient lore

Play once again the tunes of war.

 

We found our strength, our long lost pride.

We must seize this chance to turn the tide

The barbarian boot upon our throats

Must be removed with one shift stroke.

 

The hammer beats upon the forge

We will rid our nation of this scourge.

Unite as brothers and face our foe.

You’ve longed for this battle in your soul.

 

The skies are dark, the hour late.

But now the Saxon starts to hate.

Do we hear the Siren’s call?

We might just have to kill them all.

 

It seems there’s one more verse to our song

As the ghosts of heroes urge us on.

A nation mocked, a people scorned

Rise together, become the storm.

 

For Death or Glory! Until the end!

One last chance to make amends.

And if this be our final stand,

then with no regrets we die like men.

For Death or Glory
