subsequently, no music post.. aaand massively depressed
I will be uploading something for the A.I.M. ...eventually
pretty sure.. hopefully
I don't really like RT, becuase I know it's not exatly independant, but this discussion is extremely interesting.
If you ever want to get profoundly serious with the state of the world, politics and reality, Truthdig is one fantastic outlet that can be there for you (hopefully for a while). Yeah, I think I'll just leave it at that, so..
Just follow the link. Read the article. The writer, Chris Hedges, is quite brilliant.
Quote from the article "American Psychosis":
"The barrage of lies creates a climate in which everyone is assumed to be lying. The truth becomes suspect and obscured. Narratives begin to be believed not because they are true, or even sound true, but because they are emotionally appealing. The aim of systematic lying, as Arendt wrote, is the 'transformation of human nature itself.' The lies eventually foster somnambulism among a population that surrenders to the magical thinking and ceases to care. It checks out. It becomes cynical. It only asks to be entertained and given a vent for its frustration and rage."
Curious who did the picture above? Here's a quote and video with him below.
"I never want to depict him [Trump] as a figure of fun, as a buffoon, as a clown. OK? Because it brings all the attention onto him and lessens the focus on the apparatus that got him in there."
A good video for Newgrounds! ↓↓↓ (I wish it wasn't state sponsered (Russian) media [RT], but it's still interesting)
"Dissident Cartoonist" video (interview)
Quick note: I tried to embed directly from rt.com, but apparently it's not on Newgrounds' "whitelist". Sure. Ok.
I liked the thumbnail from that embed though, so I'm gonna go out of my way to put just that pic in back right here..
Actually, so I added "global" to the title of this post... because, well, simply put, the world is very globalized (more and more everyday) and that absolutely includes the export of American culture around the world (Newgrounds, like Facebook, etc. is USA culture). Therefore, if there is any truth in the theory of this 'Psychosis' in the United States, then it stands to reason a bit of that psychosis is probably spread in little (or large) bits all around the world. (even more than it would naturally occur)
The internet is a very inhuman place...
FAKE.. fuckin.. ROBOTS everywhere
honestly, I kind of truly hate it here...
but I forgot what..
actually, I could make an effort to remember what is was, but.. no
uhh- "My best days are behind me",-- "I'll never make anything this good again",-- "I hit my peak years ago" blahg blarh blah
I was commisioned to make these tracks years ago and I made em real quick cuz that's what I do I guess, but the original project basically fell through.. I had been holding on to these tracks with the hopes of finishing some alternate personal imagining of the game which I took to calling "Fathom The Unknown". But it seems I was pretty unsuccessful at getting any game done after making the music..
small sample random pixel art / game "graphics" I was trying..
..something else I was going to say. oops. forgot
Finally, this was technically the last level (Level 7) supposedly of the game, but I never said that when I originally uploaded it december of 2013
Well, for shit - nothing, mostly..
because nobody tells me what they want me to do, for them, or what they want to hear..
whatever, maybe I'll upload like, 8? more halloween things, and then, stab myself.. in the eyeball. palcoholz
I can't even begin to describe how much I don't want to win. I just want to comment on something in order to add a nearly insignificant amount of extra meaning to my miserable existence. But of course, ultimately I could not bring myself to do that. It would not have been honest, and there was the small possibility... so I just couldn't.
What am I talking about? I entirely presume you would ask. But then, I would be wrong, because nobody gonna ask me jack-shit.
I like the ring that the phrase "jack-shit" has. Now, logically speaking it's an extremely convoluted phrase and no one should really ever use it, but when has that ever stopped people? Probably close to never. Like- 0.00000000000001% of the time.
That's why Buddhism and meditation (/quiet refelection) in general are so damn important and wonderful.
fucking formulas... I fucking hate it
