CAN WE TALK ABOUT JOHNNY BRAVO FOR A SECOND?
- utilizes rule 63
- drives home the point that street harassment is not flattering
- johnny bravo appreciates being a woman and doesn’t question his masculinity
Rihanna - Diamonds (Cover by Steam Powered Giraffe)
this is exactly as hilariously terrible as you would expect
there isn’t enough alcohol on the planet
i know their gimmick is supposed to be ‘robot’ but i’ve never seen a living human look more like a shitty ’90s video game cutscene
load me up in a spaceship and send me away from this earth
have they ever seen or heard a robot before?? do they just assume robots are terrible singers because that’s what i get from this
this is so funny im crying with laughter right now is there always a singing giraffe in their music videos?????????? god i hope so
I hate when people badmouth something they know nothing about. SPG is a great group of fun and quirky dudes portrayin’ themselves as robots who are tryin’ to be human, and the best part is there’s a whole backstory and a bunch of other characters involved and its just…really well thought out. …and I wish the Giraffe made more appearances.
People better not be talkin shit about SPG
these guys are super talented and funny
And Thats the point of the cover? To be funny?
Yes? We can all follow this?
I’m unexplainably angry because people are bad mouthing Steam Powered Giraffe on my dash
Fuck you guys they sound amazing and make fun music
tried to explain to my sister that I was polyamorous today
She couldn’t get past “But wouldn’t you just get jealous all the time”
Thats really the only reaction I ever get.
DAMNIT STRIDER, YOU CAN FUCK HIM HARDER THAN THAT!
Four things I adore all in one picture… Dave/KK, Dave/John, KK/John and DP * w * Well played Anon~ And thank you for the compliment~ Hope you enjoy this too ♦♦
‘WHY ARE YOU IN MY ROOM’ - By Dave Strider
I love Kickstarter. I think that’s clear to people who know me by now? I love it. There’s a dude named Brad Muir and he works at Double Fine and I love the games they make, so much. But before Kickstarter, every time a Double Fine game came out I was a little worried it would be their last, and I’d have to worry that if people didn’t buy it, who knows what would happen to that studio. Then they found KIckstarter and now they make games and people like me can front load the development cost for them and it is the absolute best arrangement for creative people who want a tool in the exhausting struggle of art + commerce. A friend of mine is taking a month off her job to write a children’s book because of this platform. It’s GREAT. I love it.
The outcome of this is that I spend a lot of time just browsing Kickstarter looking for something cool to either back or crow about online. I don’t really back much - I don’t have a ton of capitol to toss around, and I’m sure the fact that I have a lot of ideas and no money factors into my love of a platform that gives money to people with ideas - but I like to check it out. So tonight, I found THIS fucking thing.
This is a nightmare.
Watching the video, reading the description, it sounds fairly innocent but a little eye-roll inducing. It’s another book where some nerd, desperate to be liked by women (this is not an insult, we are ALL desperate to be liked by someone we want to have sex with) thinks he’s figured out some cheat code or check-list like routine they can run in a bar to make women sleep with them, as if women aren’t people but a series of subroutines or an obstacle course that they can optimize to get their dick wet as fast as possible. And he’s written that advice down! And he’s selling it! To you! You could learn his cheat codes. This is nothing new for the internet. In fact, a large swath of this book was published already on Reddit. What’s new is that he’s crowdfunding it.
And sure, you might think this is sad or dumb or that this guy is just another lonely dude talking to other lonely dudes who’ll head out into the night with their fedoras to failure, right? Not a big deal? Oops, turns out we’re wrong, because here are some excerpts from what he’s already put on Reddit -
”5) Get CLOSE to her, damn it!
To quote Rob Judge, “Personal space is for pussies.” I already told you that the most successful seducers are those who can’t keep their hands off of women. Well you’re not gonna be able to do that if you aren’t in close! ”
“All the greatest seducers in history could not keep their hands off of women. They aggressively escalated physically with every woman they were flirting with. They began touching them immediately, kept great body language and eye contact, and were shameless in their physicality. Even when a girl rejects your advances, she KNOWS that you desire her. That’s hot. It arouses her physically and psychologically.”
“Decide that you’re going to sit in a position where you can rub her leg and back. Physically pick her up and sit her on your lap. Don’t ask for permission. Be dominant. Force her to rebuff your advances.”
Pull out your cock and put her hand on it. Remember, she is letting you do this because you have established yourself as a LEADER. Don’t ask for permission, GRAB HER HAND, and put it right on your dick.”
SO. Now I am no longer rolling my eyes.
This guy is no longer just being weird and creepy on the internet. Now he’s writing a book about how to sexually assault women, and he is using something I believe in (Kickstarter) to ask YOU for money to do it. I am offended as someone who believes in the platform, and more importantly I am offended as someone who believes women shouldn’t be treated this way, and that people who say otherwise CERTAINLY should not profit off saying they should.
This isn’t harmless. People come to these boards because they are scared of being humiliated, and they are saying to the world, “Tell me what to do, because I don’t know what to do.” And this guy has chosen to tell them, “You should be a rapist.”
There’s largely nothing we can do about people saying this shit on a place like Reddit - Reddit’s a mess for another time - but let’s get it off of Kickstarter. The project is funded in 10 hours - and unfortunately a lot of those are sleeping hours - but PLEASE report it to Kickstarter, please tweet @Kickstarter asking them to take it down, and PLEASE do not let something cool be used for the UGLIEST thing imaginable.
The Kickstarter - Report Button is on the bottom of the page
Please Tweet at @Kickstarter
I’ve reported this and tweeted at KS. I just hope someone on that end will be around to deal with the flood of complaints before the project is funded. Shit like this flies under the radar far too often.
I’ll put this here too, for good measure.
never go on reddit never go on reddit~ also report this
Please report the thing
EDIT: NEVERMIND I found the sources wow.
the person that initially made the post took me to a COMPLETELY different page and I had to dig eVERYWHERE TO FIND IT.
So yes, bad bad bad kickstarter.
There’s a billion weird inaccuracies and stuff (like why the hell is he polishing that blade, aren’t they like disposable) but I just wanted to draw some dorks being dorky so here’s my otp again
Gwendoline Christie is the actress for Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. She stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and took swordfighting, horseriding, and stagefighting lessons for her part, as well as gaining 14 pounds of muscle, to accurately portray Brienne. (x)
She was also terrified of cutting her hair because she’d spent her life believing it was one of the only things that would make people see her as feminine despite her height. In an interview with TV Guide she said:
I struggled for a long time with [cutting] my hair, but then I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize that femininity doesn’t have to come from hair or any of those traditional female archetypes of appearance, So, that’s been exciting actually. I can’t speak with any kind of authority whatsoever because I’m just an actor and I only have my opinions, but I do think it’s really refreshing to have a woman depicted on a mainstream TV show that doesn’t obey typical aesthetics of females and the way they have been portrayed in the past. And I’m really excited to be portraying one of those women. And I hope that her popularity signals a greater expansion of people’s views about men and women and that gender types can be more flexible.
These men are my idols.
I really need to start watching them again. I’ve missed so much.
If I was to save 5 bucks a week for the rest of my life I still wouldn’t have enough money to buy all the toys I want.
Life isn’t fair.
