Together We Can Fight The Poz

I had nice relaxing evening of catching up on podcasts and getting my ass kicked by computer generated alien adversaries.

A bunch of things I’m keeping an eye on but there’s not really much I can add to what other people are already saying. For example the implications of the Google Manifesto and massive shitstorm that caused. Big happening, nothing I can add.

The other topic of the day is of course Marvel Milkshake Masturbation which is continuing to simmer and could still fester into the long prophetized #ComicsGate…

The consensus I seem to be getting right now is that no-one thinks this will be the Big One but if it is most comic readers are like, “BRING IT THE FUCK ON!!! I GOT MY ROCKET LAUNCHER HERE!!!”

Might still happen, there are certainly enough righteous anger in the air, the problem of course is that ashes don’t catch fire too well. Also comic book fans are completionists by nature which greatly blunts the threat of a boycott. Does that make everything completely hopeless? No it simply means that everyone needs to switch their focus to the long game.

Once a company becomes fully SJW converged saving the company and deconverging it becomes nigh on impossible (or at least it hasn’t been done yet.) Marvel is fully converged, I know it hurts to admit that and if you a shoulder to cry I understand. Marvel comics barring divine intervention is doomed. This is why you must resist the poz, for the poz consumes all.

So if Marvel cannot be saved what’s left? The threat here is not merely to the main company but to the entire existence of the Western comic book as a medium. I wish I was exaggerating but those are the stakes that are being played for here. All of western culture is under attack and we all must fight back on the terrain that each of us knows best.

Saving comics is going to require building up new companies that are not SJW infected. Big companies don’t just magically appear they start as small companies that succeed. So hunt for and find those small indie comic publishers, maybe that have something you’d be interested in? There is also one very big bonus to doing this that no one seems to be mentioning. If there is a healthy small to mid-market comics industry; writers and artists currently working for the big companies will have options should they get fired for wrongthink. This gives them at least some leverage to work against SJWs while still inside the company.

A key point from SJWs Always Lie is that most people appear to be SJWs are merely parroting talking points out of fear. By stripping away that fear and providing at least a reasonable chance of an escape route you will get people (sometimes that last person you’d expect) speaking up against the madness.

Anyway unless there’s some major unforeseen event this will be my last post on Comics as this is not my normal beat.

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.

yepprfirm.jpg

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.

burnitdownpooh.jpg

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.

hyruletrampstamp.jpg

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.

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.

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.

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.

ComicGate Might Actually Be Happening

The Proposed Fourth and Fifth Laws of the SJW.

The scientifically established Three Laws of The SJW

voxs3laws

But alas it appears that may be more to SJW Theory than we originally thought.

 

The Fourth Law: (Which I attribute to Bradford C. Walker)

SJWs will sacrifice YOU for power

SJWs crave one thing above all else POWER!!! and they will do anything to get it. Family, friends, co-workers random people on Twitter. No act of treachery is too vile for them to consider. No relationship to sacred to throw into the fire in hope of appeasing the Great Holy Narrative. They will come for you.

 

The Proposed Fifth Law:

SJWs ALWAYS leave money on the table.

This is what bring me here today. SJW Convergence eats away at a company and very quickly destroys its ability to understand what their customers actually want. Even if the company is still capable of producing quality work the SJW takeover of the middle management prevents the upper management from getting clear “end user feedback” from the customer base and completely cuts off the information flow within the company as well. (You need to talk your field hands from time to time.)

This leads to bad business decisions. Not only is the now converged company producing the wrong products and wasting resources on corporate feel good virtue signalling but it leads to the infuriating phenomenon of NOT producing products that the old customer base actually want and which could EASILY turn a profit.

It usually takes a few years for a competitor to exploit this gap in the market but when it does happen it can happen very quickly and of course sense the upper management in an SJW converged organization is not getting accurate information (even if they wanted it) the company is powerless to fight off the new competition.

Therefore SJWs ALWAYS leave money on the table. Sooner or later (even years or decades later) somebody else will pick it up.

Marvel SJW writers are now using Youtube’s copyright system to censor critics. [6 mins]

Capn Cumming has an extremely annoying voice but he’s definitely one of the good guys.

And a final side note I’m not a comic reader myself but a lot of my friends are so I make it a point to at least try to keep up on news. After all it’s all one big culture war.

 

Update: Snidely Whiplash at VP suggests rewording the Fourth Law to

“SJWs will sacrifice anybody, no matter how close, to maintain their place in the warren.

On one hand this is a better, more detailed, more intelligent way to put it on the other hand it requires the reader to be familiar with r/K selection theory and I do think we need to keep things as 100 IQ friendly as possible. The normies are already confused let’s not make things worse. That said very happy to get any sort of feedback on this.

It does occur to me that studying SJW Theory is a lot like trying to discover elements on the periodic table. We know there is something there we just need to find it and figure out a way to describe it to others.

Update Two:

A peer reviewer points out that the Three Established Laws are based on what SJWs are observed to do. While the Proposed Fifth Law is based on something SJWs are observed NOT to do. This may be enough to disqualify the Proposed Fifth Law.

I need a break from politics and I guess this will count. This was supposed to be my one day to relax this week and I spent most of it on social media yelling about throwing reporters out of helicopters. Therapeutic perhaps but hardly productive.

I try to cover a good spread of topics in these… things so that there is something for everybody. Still end of the day it’s whatever shiny internet thing catches my eye, and I’m not exactly the most organized individual.
