DJ Clarknova - Toonami Black Hole Megamix [breakbeat/drum n bass]

I still feel like Toonami hasn’t had enough respect put on it’s name for single-handedly influencing all these non-binary anime/bideo game & electronic music loving millennials but I’m biased of course

I’m finally giving afropessimism a good re-read and its totally fucking with my understanding of racism and whiteness. It’s a bit dense and honestly a bit horrific but still good. I’m only a quarter thru

I have always had a contempt for authority so I never really got along with any of my bosses lol but it wasn’t because they were all horrible. I think I would have gotten along with most of them fine if they just….weren’t telling me wtf to do lol. I can’t be friends with someone if I don’t feel like we’re equals or I’m afraid you’re going to take away my lifeline. I think being in a position of authority over people changes your behavior a lot too bc they all seemed sorta detached and guarded

I think the weak promise of stability and the potential for upward mobility in the workplace is what keeps us at jobs that don’t pay well (basically every job I’ve ever had). or a fear of retaliation. I never worked anywhere that didn’t make me feel like I was constantly being monitored for mistakes or in competition with everyone else. it’s frustrating to see all of us under this pressure being fired and punished by people who did half as much work but they’re paid 4x more

tbh a lot of my ex-coworkers seemed really comfortable at our jobs even if they obviously weren’t happy with all parts of it. what a lot of us had a common though was animosity for management. some of my really clever coworkers managed to be “friends” with our bosses (I’m bad at pretending I like someone when I don’t) but even they expressed how our bosses got on their nerves or had arguments w/em. most of the time the issue was the bosses not being accountable or sharing the workload

I think the whole thing about fighting for higher wages is that I realize it’s a great entry point for organizing workers but it seems like it can get mired in an endless loop of reforms. like is it a win if wages go up in some areas but suffer elsewhere in places where workers aren't organizing? and that’s if they’re being paid at all. I think it’s cool to be one of the things people organize around but it can’t hurt to have bigger imaginations outside of that

tumblr has certainly been a formative experience, for the good and the ugly

of course the gag is that if we were free to live authentically without fear of retaliation it would also likely encourage neurotypicals to express themselves better without hiding behind this illusion that “normal people” have to subscribe to certain behaviors lest they become pariahs

I think NT’s would be really put off by ND folks refusing to mask in front of them and I’ve seen the hostility directed at us firsthand when we stim or scream or talk to ourselves or anything “not normal” that helps us think and regulate our emotions. people get annoyed by us for having the audacity to exist around them as if they’re more entitled to public space than we are. fuck else are we supposed to go? Ah, that’s right they only feel safe when we’re in prison or otherwise out of sight lol

maybe explaining that I’m immobilized because no focus and interest sounds like complaining that I find everything boring and I do, but that’s not the only problem. I can fight past that through sheer will or letting the raging flames of boredom lick my brain (which is torturous to adhd havers) and I do that every single day. don’t see how anyone can call that lazy or undisciplined lol BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE. It also manifests as mania and that comes with its own challenges

I think what mfs don’t understand about ED (the other one) is that it’s not about willpower or discipline like at all…and my heart breaks for every kid with adhd who’s been told they’re careless idiots bc that’s something you’ll hear a lot over time and there’s no foolproof way to deal with your own brain doing its own thing except to fuck with its chemistry and the environment ur in. and how many people are able to change either of those things without a lot of effort or money?

executive dysfunction has been beating my ass I think I’m gonna have to find adhd meds after all but I can’t express how reluctant I am to that. Seems like it’s either that or let my brain burn to a smoking crisp every time I must perform [basic task]

Madness Combat Series (Review) 

The last part of this review, and definitely not the least is the music. I doubt the series would be as well loved without the twisted and manic musical stylings of Cheshyre, who does the score for almost every episode in the series. Cheshyre brings an energy to these violent moments that only enhance the hyperactive energy and sense of dread the series is known for. Krinkles' gothic and brutal style is complimented well by Cheshyre's absolute fucking banger tracks

Madness Combat Series (Review) 

I originally watched the series as a preteen hunched over a very slow family computer that could barely handle the graphics. there's no way you can recreate that experience, so it may not be that impressive to you, but you might be surprised. later, the animation is on-par with shows like Rick and Morty in terms of complexity and scale, but with Madness' episodes being a fraction of the runtime - brief, stylish, dense and very fun.

Madness Combat Series (Review) 

even though I hope this review influences more people to give the series their time, I am convinced that it just isn't for everybody. asking anyone to stomach over an an hour of uninterrupted animated cartoon shootouts with absolutely no dialogue might be a challenge but your reward is experiencing the weirdest and coolest cartoons you may ever witness

Madness Combat Series (Review) 

What makes this series even more impressive is the fact that Krinkles animated the entirety of the series by himself, frame by frame. each blood splatter, the physics, the character models, everything drawn, keyed, written and directed a single person. If nothing else, I think that you must appreciate the work involved in bringing this series to life. Krinkles released the main episodes on a yearly basis until "10: Abrogation" with other related shorts between.

Madness Combat Series (Review) 

I believe that the lack of an immediately apparent plot works to Madness' advantage in that it isn't forced to spend time trying to make any of the characters endearing and loveable. Krinkles seems eager to remind viewers that action can be engaging and impressive for its own sake. I think more series would benefit from shedding excessive and unnecessary attempts at making the viewer more invested. and besides, this isn't that type of cartoon.
