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.

NerdLife 10: Most Interesting Times

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.

essentialnpc

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!

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.

Another Goal Reached

Unoriginal Character: Please Steal

Well we already got some Alt*Hero fan art so let’s do some fanwriting.

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

Hero Name: Snow Devil

Nationality: Finnish

Alignment: Undetermined

Appearance: Unremarkable, Average height, medium build if exceptionally well toned. Usually with a short beard*. Very much a grey man, which suits his desire to remain unnoticed.

Powers:

Enhanced Strength and Speed: Not terribly strong by Sequens standards and he does need to avoid close combat with more powerful opponents or melee combat specialists.

Camouflage: Snow Devil can make himself far more difficult to see, provided that there is at least some natural camouflage or hiding place to work with.

Light manipulation and minor illusions: Appears to be related to his camouflage ability but Snow Devil has not fully grasped how to use this aspect of his abilities or what the exact limitations are.

Greatly Enhanced Situational Awareness: This allows him to get the drop on much more powerful opponents.

Draw power From Cold: Snow Devil is able to use the temperature difference between his core body temperature and the ambient to fuel or strengthen his abilities. He doesn’t really understand how this works only that the colder it is the stronger he gets.

Instinctive Polyglot: Snow Devil learns new languages in a matter of days if not hours. Note that this applies to spoken languages and not written forms. He can barely read Finnish, never mind English or Russian.

Speak to Animals (Reindeer): Yes he can talk to reindeer. It doesn’t make sense to him either but then again none of this superhero stuff does. Also note that it’s talk to reindeer, not command or charm them.

Non superpowered skills:

Exceptional outdoorsman and survivalist

Very skilled hunter and rifle marksman

Adequate pistol marksman: He can use a handgun but he’s not particularly skilled.

Skilled driver: Above average anyway.

Good Mechanic with some knowledge of operating heavy machinery.

Adequate medical knowledge: About at the level of a typical paramedic.

Fast Talker: Can bluff or charm his way out of a lot of situations.

Flaws and weaknesses:

Alcoholic and Antisocial: Even by Finnish standards.

Uncomfortable in cites or crowds: Likely related to his enhanced senses and alertness.

Prone to brooding and inaction.

Tactics: Snow Devil relies very heavily on his secondary powers and his mundane skills. He fights in a hit and run or ambush predator style. He is also very quick to withdraw if he believes he is outmatched. He is well aware that he simply cannot go to toe-to-toe with a physically stronger opponent like Captain Europa or Michael Martel.

Goals and Motivations: When we first meet Snow devil he has two mutually exclusive goals;

-Lay low and avoid the attention of the Global Justice Initiative

-Intimidate and deter the Russian military from invading his home country

Naturally something has to give. Snow Devil is well aware that he is living on borrowed time but he has yet to come up with any solutions. He does have friends and some contacts in the Finnish military but he been very careful not to reveal the full extent of his abilities. He has also been quietly making friends (or at least drinking buddies) with some of the Russian border guards in an effort to keep a line of communication open.

 

*He likes to shave when he goes into town; usually with hatchet or a large knife.

Alt-Hero and The Culture War

Alt*Hero: The Boulder is Beginning to Squish Things.

The Alt*Hero Freestartr has reached its second stretch goal and currently stands at $56k.

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

AHgoal2reached.jpg

Meanwhile the Great Ocean of Salty Tears and the unceasing REEEEEEs continue. Wolfie does indeed love him some schadenfreude. Although the constant shrieks as every wandering SJW first discovers Alt*Hero does make it hard to sleep.

Alt*Hero is the kind of book we would have rejected at Previews. Man Kickstarter is the best & worst thing to happen to comics publishing.” — @Williambwest

Questionable content never had painful body horror anatomy like this alt hero crap does” —@comixthomas

If you’re donating to this Alt hero train wreck headed by Theodore Beale. I’m at a loss for words.” — @Jenniferjmedina

Just found out the “Alt Hero” altright wank job comic is being written by Vox “A very sad puppy” Day. And I’m fuckin losing it.” — @DaiZDark

Alt Hero is a racist wonder woman comic with a kickstarter. Onme of the stretch goals is they hire an artist who can draw hands.” — @EggerTWS

Because remember folks: ‘Alt Hero’ can only be hero if the evil commies won. But at least the art sucks so, yanno perks!” —@RabbitThoughts

Why look even the cucks are joining in.

Micah Curtis not a fan of Vox Day. Not sold on Alt*Hero [10min]

To be fair here, Micah is more sceptical and confused than anything. I suppose he has every right to be. To the absolute shock of Vox Populi’s regular readers it actually does seem possible to completely miss the entire point of Alt*Hero.

Alt*Hero is not just about the sweet salty tears of the butthurt Marvel soyboys

Alt*Hero is not just about the glorious “Fuck You” dance for the ages.

Alt*Hero is not just about raising T-Levels throughout an notoriously Low-T hobby.

Alt*Hero is not just about Gen X completely bypassing the Millennials and handing down a uniquely American artform to Generation Z.

Alt*Hero is not just about providing raw material for the legendary dwarven meme-smiths to forge into adamantium weapons of concentrated dankness.

But these are all very good things.

Alt*Hero is first and foremost a proof of concept.

We are going to make whatever we want. We are going to show everyone that the self-appointed gatekeepers are completely powerless to stop us. Then we are going to dance in the streets to the sound of their heads exploding. Then other people are going to follow behind us. Alt*Hero is also about the enormous wave of innovation and creative productivity that will follow in its wake.

This the culture war. We’re taking back our hobbies, we’re revitalizing Western Civilization. We’re bringing Truth and Beauty back to a world that desperately needs it.

The SJWs have fucked up the entire comic industry.

We’re just gonna have to un-fuck it, one thrust at a time.

While they watch us…

Good times ahead everyone.

Alt-Hero and The Culture War

Alt Hero Funded

and it happened so fast I’m REEEEEing myself.

Altherofunded

That timestamp does seem suspiciously dank.

 

Still absorbing the news and reaction and my first thoughts are that I did not see the alternate World War II history part coming. Very interesting indeed. I wonder if there was a failed Japanese invasion of the West Coast? and if so did they use giant robots?

 

Update: Orbital REEEEEEs confirmed.

orbitalreeeee

And the catgirls at the secret moonbase are acting very strange.

Alt Hero Funded

I Have No Mouth and I Must Virtue Signal

I do hope everybody is following the twitter spasm surrounding Alt-Hero.

So much SNARK, so much projection, so many transgender bugchasing Marxist furries.

A fascinating character study if nothing else.

Truly REEEEEEE powered marketing is the wave of the future.

Just look at Vox Day’s enemies spread the word for him!

“You overestimate the number of people buying comics.”

And you underestimate the number of people who bought comics for decades and have only recently stopped because they couldn’t put up with the bullshit anymore.

Come to think of it awful lot of those old angry white comic fans (who have been shit upon for years now) would be just about the right age to have teenage sons.

That’s who Alt-Hero is for. Not plebs like me who are going to be quite content with a just a digital copy. The hardcore jaded ex-comic reader who’s old enough to remember when comics were actually good and want to relive some of that glory while sticking it to the rotting corpse of the current mainstream comic industry.

and then there is going to be the Weaponized Autists who are going to be EXTREMELY HAPPY to physically hold three hundred dollars of “FUCK YOU MARVEL!!!” in their hands. There will be at least a couple guys like that… and God bless them for it.

Alt-Hero is going to happen in one form or another. The question is whether or not the current plans are workable. Chewing on the numbers myself I don’t see any way the Alt-Hero project falls flat on its ass unless mission creep sets in. Again Castalia House already has enough of distribution system to deliver the promised product without working with the normal comic industry channels.

“But Castalia House doesn’t know anything about publishing comic books!”

Well guess what? Neither does 2017 Marvel Comics. So let’s see what happens. The timing of this whole project really not have been better due to the baffling events of Marvel Milkshake Madness and ComicsGate trickling along in bursts and spurts.

So let the games begin.
