The War For The Heart Of Geekdom: What Can You Do?

Still Sperging About Milkshakes

Well it looks like this thing is not going away as just recently a flood of “Geeks are Bad” articles started popping up in pretentious Fake Geek Media sites nobody actually reads. What does this mean? It means that Marvel went ahead and hired a PR firm in order to damage control. Milkshake Madness continues but it’s not really fooling anyone.

Seeing a lot of new faces around these parts. That’s good. Also I see some of you brought flamethrowers. At least somebody’s been thinking ahead.

Welcome to The War For the Heart of Geekdom. Where while we might not be able to control the ‘Tism we can damn well ride it into battle.

Newcomers? Well what’s the first step?

You need to begin ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVES to the thing you once liked that used to be good. This will take a lot of effort so you need to start doing it now.

Since the new guys are mostly Comicbros the Patriotika Kickstarter is probably the first thing we should bring up. Even it’s too late to contribute, this is a good example of the sort of thing you need to be actively looking for. You don’t have to support every project but make sure you are actively search for independent un-pozzed media. Step two is spreading the word when you do find something promising. Even if you don’t like something your homies might. How are they supposed to find out about all this cool shit if you don’t tell them about it?

Patriotika [10 mins]

And it’s immediately apparent that there are at least two very good reasons to support this comic.

 

Or this thing. This is a thing. Is it your thing? Only you can make that decision. Not your thing? Well find other things. If you don’t like a thing, just keep moving on to the next thing. If you look hard enough you will find your thing. Go now and find your things. Things are there to be found.

and it doesn’t hurt to branch out a little here and there. You do realize that a huge number of the old pulp magazines have been archived and put up online, right? That #Pulprev thing is happening for a reason.

The Pulp Magazine project

http://www.pulpmags.org/

So go read something from the 1930’s.

Back when men were men and not only would a woman actually make you a sandwich she would travel great distances; punching bears and tigers along the way in order to bring you that very same sandwich.

You wanna make comics great again? 1930’s style pulp stories told by 1990’s style art is probably the winning combination. Even normies would be all over that shit.

The point I’m trying to make here that we’re big boys now and we don’t need no mouse to entertain us. Yes it will take a lot of work to get anything worthwhile done… but look at it this way. If you were a whiny crybaby bitch you’d still be on the other team, wouldn’t you? We got this bro. We just need to put in the asschairhours. Welcome to the Cult of Life. It’s time to face down the Cults of Death.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day.” you sperg.

Yes but Rome was built in the first place.” I sperg back. “We know that it can done because it done before therefore we can do it again. Why let mere difficultly deter us from a righteous cause?”

Anyway enough ranting, down to business.

Indie Author Jon Del Arroz gives his take on Marvel Milkshake Madness

http://delarroz.com/?p=1303

Yes he has a steampunk novel out. Complete with airships.

http://bit.ly/forsteamandcountry

Yes the main character is named Zaira von Monocle.

That’s just how we roll in these parts. Did you come here to have fun or not?

 

No Escapism Allowed.

http://www.threedonia.com/archives/5943

Speaking about having fun. It’s not what SJW Marvel has in mind.

 

DAMN YOU POE’S LAW!!! [10 mins]

Either way this video is dangerous to your sides. So put your drink down before you watch. Unless you have a spare keyboard handy and want to live dangerously.

 

Diversity and Comics [16 mins]

A lot of rambling about one of his ongoing projects in this one but there’s still a couple key points worth mentioning.

-Secret Empire is failing so hard that Marvel should be in crisis mode.

-The “milkshake gambit” was a tactic to make the fake geek girls assistant editors unfireable.

Quick Note: Fake Geek Girl is less of a lifestyle and more of a dating strategy. Usually a very successful one but that’s another topic for another day.

 

Captain Cummings on the imminent failure of Marvel Generations [12 mins]

Not only that but Marvel is engaging in fake accounting when it comes to their sales numbers and unfairly dumping the load on comic retailers.

Marvelstrongarm

Yes and apparently Games Workshop is pulling the same kind of shit.

 

So anyway that’s all I got for tonight. I’ll leave you with one final question. Who would you rather be?

This Guy

Sardovonlardo.jpg

or this guy?

mongolianshepard.jpg

That’s a #pulprev story right there.

#AltGeek the choice is yours. Choose wisely for you have only last fuck to give.

Social media??? I have no idea why anybody would want to follow me but I’m getting a lot of followers on Gab for some reason. I am slow to follow back but if you talk to me enough times I’ll eventually get curious.

Twitter: Warning! Drunk twitter rants may occur at any time.

https://twitter.com/wolfman977

I do try to keep politics off of Twitter, unfortunately shit keeps pissing me off and I’m under no obligation to keep things professional.

Gab: GET YOUR ASS TO GAB even if it’s just a placeholder account. Froglife is best life.

https://gab.ai/Wolvesandmen

And yes Gab is 90% politics if you don’t like it talk about something else, anything else. If you don’t like the AltRight guys DON’T FUCKING FOLLOW THEM. Personally I like to keep an eye on what the really hardline motherfuckers are saying but that’s my choice.

Nerdstuff —> Twitter   Politics —> Gab

I think that’s a reasonable policy so we’ll try that for a while.

and that’s about it. This shitty blog is kind of my main thing.

The War For The Heart Of Geekdom: What Can You Do?

Marvel Milkshake Madness

A little surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to what I thought was a very lazy “Is ComicGate happening?” Article I threw together on a whim. Anyway while I don’t think things will escalate to that point I did foolishly promise to keep an eye on things for my readers. So here I am. Again I’m not a comics guy but I know when to shut up and listen when experts are talking. It’s all one big NerdWar anyway and us geeks need to stand together against the pozz.

Milkshake Madness (not using that stupid hashtag) probably isn’t going to blow up any bigger than it already has. The fire simply has no more fuel. What are poor comic books fans supposed to do? Many Marvel titles are getting effectively zero sales. Are enraged fans supposed to not buy comics even harder? Comic readers simply don’t have enough leverage left to create a ComicGate scale event. I could be wrong there but that’s my prediction based on the news I have… things will die down in a few days.

marveldcsales.jpg

That said expect the White Knighting and frantic virtue signalling to continue for at least more few weeks. Fedoras gotta fedora after all and this as a good an excuse to M’lady as any.

Awesome song but damn if it doesn’t fit.

Is there a positive side to all this? Yes! We are beginning to see the continuing rise of what I guess we’ll wind up calling AltGeekMedia. A sane and non-pozzed alternative to the cancerous cringefest that tries to pass itself off as “Geek Media.”

This creates a Permanent Opposition to the SJW Narrative that did not exist up until now. Slowly the tide turns.

Aw… That’s cute. They think they’ve already won.

First serious SJW attack? It’s like when a made man does time for the family. A rite of passage.

 

Captain Cummings, Shitlord of the High Seas gives a conspiracy theory breakdown of the Mileshake Incident. [12 mins]

Let’s start with this. We know Heather Antos is a lair.”

Note the importance of the narrative change (from SJW Marvel makes shitty comics to comic fans are sexist racist manbabies.) This is virtually identical to what happened in the earliest days of GamerGate and involved a few of the same ‘geek media’ outlets. This is why Milkshake Madness resonates so much with the old school GG crowd. We were there and we just so happen to be spergy enough to recognize the SJW attack pattern.

 

str8fromtheplaybook.jpg

Same narrative. Same wording even. I had to check the calendar to make sure I wasn’t stuck in a timeloop.

 

Again an important point here neither DnC or Capn Cummings were involved in GamerGate or Sad/Rabid Puppies or any either such counter-SJW movement but they curiously report THE EXACT SAME PATTERNS OF SJW BEHAVIOR.

Semi-Related: Vox Day on the eventual rise of Alt-Culture

http://voxday.blogspot.ca/2017/08/the-death-of-pop-culture.html

Again it is going to be VERY interesting to see how many people who would otherwise not have anything to do with the Alt-Right or Vox Day will choose to support the Alt-Hero Project simply on the Fuck You Marvel Principle. SJW Marvel may have picked a very bad time to declare war on their fans.

Anyway that’s all I got for the moment.

I Might Be Trying To Tell The Wrong Story

“The situation in The Capital does seem to be calming down but that’s likely just a peace of exhaustion.” The Commander answered. “Thankfully the Regency Council has pushed through enough reforms to strip the Black December Movement of its moderate support. So the danger of a full scale popular uprising is beginning to fade.”

General Young hesitated he had mixed feelings about the unrest back on the homeworld. Despite his lofty rank the general never forgot his middle class background and it was very difficult for him not to feel sympathy for the rebels. However he was of course smart enough to keep his mouth shut on such matters. Besides the last thing Breyland needed was a protracted civil war on the Homeworld.

“Well that’s a relief. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to put down an insurrection back on the Homeworld.” Colonel Tillerman exclaimed.

“I can.” Young said with gritted teeth. “Even assuming the Planetary Army sides with the Government there’s simply no way to hold the planet against the armed populace, should the middle class revolt en masse… and the General Staff knows it.”

The Gendarme Colonel blinked. “Then what? What would our options be? We’d still hold the orbitals but bombardment would be out of the question.”

“In that case. My dear Colonel, we either flood the streets with the blood of two billion black conscripts and whatever loyal white troops we can find or we surrender and join the New Republic whatever form it might take.” The General muttered very bitterly. “If we lose the Homeworld, we lose period.”

Tillerman seemed shocked that the General would speak so bluntly but had no choice but to nod in agreement. He was just as trained in fourth generation warfare as the General and probably had more practical experience. Just thinking about trying to fight such a campaign terrified him and rightly so.

Commander Lynch stood there with a rather forced grin on her face. “Thankfully gentlemen that scenario will not be coming to pass. I repeat the unrest and disorder is beginning to die down.”

“Amen to that,” Young grunted and a great deal of tension left the room. “Our doom is not assured for God has granted us a reprieve.”

“Assuming the politicians can take advantage of whatever brief chance fortune has given them.” Tillerson added. “And the succession? Surely there’s been some decision?”

Anyone else starting to notice a pattern here.

Marvel is at war with the fans. Straight up and down. They hate them.”

Interesting to see these two fairly non-political comic reviewers* quoting Vox Day’s Three Laws of the SJW. Also there was a fun anecdote about DnC’s time in the marines. Rant rating 9/10.

 

And if you have a lot of time on your hands here’s The_Bechtloff’s last podcast. I believe the first half hour or so is comic related and covers the incident in question. [1H 10M]

Sadly Mr. Bechtloff did not get mentioned in the Mary Sue. His point however about SJW Marvel writers not being real geeks is spot on. Old geeks tend to get very angry when SJW hipster trash fake geeks bully and shame teenage geeks (who are not yet secure and confident in their geekdom.)

[LITERALLY SHAKING]

Anyway again while I’m not a comic guy myself I do intend to keep an eye on things. If ComicGate does break out I will do my best to follow events from the frontline as a “completely unbiased embedded reporter.”

anti-communist-cartoon-011.jpg

*Yes about a quarter of their audience are Alt-Right but the two gentlemen in question come across as Displaced or Anti-Left Center Similar to Sargon of Akkad. This is fine; a single-issue activist needs no politics. Also comic reviewers should be talking about comics.

At this point people might find themselves supporting the Alt-Hero project purely out of spite. Going to be very interesting to see what happens.

Brian Niemeier discusses the difference between the Superversive and the Pulp Revolution literary movements.

http://www.brianniemeier.com/2017/07/superversive-pulprev.html

superversivepulprev.png

I do think it is important to remember that these two movements overlap and are not in direct conflict; even if certain people do seem to get strangely butthurt about it.

I initially supported the Superversive SF movement and I stand by the goal of countering the nihilism and hopelessness that is all pervasive in modern literature and “entertainment.” As for the Pulprev? I have the much better reason that all my cool friends are doing it and putting entertainment back into things that are supposed to be entertaining just seems like a good idea.

Remember if the audience begins to cheer for the bad guys, you either haven’t fleshed out your heroes properly or you may be writing some kind of horrible message fic.

https://gamingballistic.com/2017/07/12/vikings-shields-and-game-rules/

Interesting thing about this – a properly made shield, when struck at with a sharp sword, will catch and trap the blade of that sword. Nearly every time. The thinner, the easier this happens, but even with the thicker wood with no rawhide edging, a good shield bind was obtained.”
